Re: The Will of the People

The possibility of a hard Brexit looms. This will only please a very small amout of people. You mean a small number of people. (You can have a small "amount" of people if first you run them through a mincer!) :wink: Is this what everyone voted for? In my case, yes. And, if the previous PM...

Re: Vodafone SMS

I don't have any problems but I have a dual SIM phone and I use the UK (Virgin) SIM when contacting a UK number.

Re: Charging my Kindle

I charge my Kindle (touch screen model) with a Belkin twin USB charger.

The usual reasons for no charge are:

1. Faulty charging lead.
2. Insufficient current capability of charger.
3. Lint in the Kindle socket.

The INKA in Kefalas has a collection basket. (Could use some labels there, too!)

Re: The Will of the People

If you've been keeping up with the QAnon posts and associated discussions, you'll be aware that President Trump and his Military Intelligence team are influencing the Brexit outcome. In fact they have plans for the entire system of world trade in terms of removing control from families such as Roths...

Re: Polecats

Mothballs are called "nafthaleenee" in Greek. General hardware shops often stock them. If you can't get them in perforated plastic containers, make your own out of plastic tubular containers. They seem to work. My Honda wiring hasn't been chewed since I suspended tubes of mothballs around ...

Re: Ground Almonds and Dried Figs

Surely the cheapest method is to bung almonds in a blender and lie figs out in the sun to dry? I have a small fig tree in my garden and my part-time UK neighbour has a huge tree and lets me pick figs from it. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+dry+figs As for fresh almonds, I don't ...

Re: Why Brexit is Right

So there were never any product safety tests, or regulations in the UK before joining the EU then ? As you know, there were and they were better and they were enforced. Since the EU imposed its rules, the regulations are not enforced and all sorts of crap is imported without restriction. As an exam...

Re: Skype Update

WhatsApp works on a Mac? I thought it worked only on a "smartphone" (which I don't have). I note that Microsoft has installed a Skype "update" on my Mac. On launching it, I discover that it "can not find a camera". I unclip camera and wave it in front of the screen but ...

Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit on March 31st. And NO second referendum.
(This guy has a good track record of predicting what will happen. For example, he predicted Trump's win and - like it or not - that was correct.)

I was really tempted to comment on the post by the lady who was "pouring" over flowers in Lidl but I resisted the temptation - knowing that Philip would put his PC hat on and condemn me!

Re: Cot wanted

Hiring is uncommon on Crete. Greek extended families are large and someone always has a relative who will lend them what they need.

I suggest buying what you need and selling when you're finished with it. Try advertising on the two Cretan Facebook groups.

Re: Used car wanted

In a few years I.C.E. cars will plummet in value. Electric engines are taking over. I realise that it's not obvious (here, at least) but all car manufacturers have stated that their future production will be hybrid or all-electric. UK cities such as Oxford have announced that I.C.E. vehicles are to ...

Re: Help. Shotguns not allowed.

Erect a clear, polypropylene roof over the area. Make it slope at least 3 degrees. Easy to hose down when the rain doesn't do it for you.
