Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

Absolutely. I don't think it can be arbitrarily dismissed as "not a good drink" - because the quality varies enormously, as Filippos says, Like any alcoholic drink it can be abused. But perhaps there are other "good" aspects to it. Like other originally moonshine alcohols - potee...

Whither the Weather?

This is being a really weird year, weather-wise. The dry winter, with so little snow on the mountains; the premature heat wave, then a full week of buffeting melteme-type winds ( in May?) driving everyone off the beaches. And now we're promised several days of dropped temperatures, rain, storms...in...

Re: Small World

Not at all, Jeff. I think it's good that we keep every aspect of this subject in our minds, because it's something that affects us all directly or otherwise. There's quite a bit of stuff immediately available on the internet about the reasons for the drought, the remedies, etc. I offer the following...

Small World

Ever since I spent a month in India the winter before last, the little tablet which I took with me has assumed I am Indian. Every time I log on, I get MSN’s Indian news, so if you want to know about the latest political scandal in the Congress Party, or hear about Bollywood’s latest, I am your woman...

Re: Plane spotter arrested near CHQ Airport

I don’t understand it either, Guy, but live and let. We all have our interests, some verging on passions, and to others they may seem esoteric, exotic, or downright bonkers. Now this, I really don’t get. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-43843614/sugar-tax-revolt-meet-the-ribena-stockpilers Marmite, y...

Re: Plane spotter arrested near CHQ Airport

My late wife used to drool over sailors in dress whites.


Can't see it myself, but each to her own...now if we're talking late 18th/early 19th century naval officers in white breeches, in ships of the line with billowing topsails..I do love a cocked hat.

Re: Plane spotter arrested near CHQ Airport

The naval vessels are often not identified on the site but if you can get the hull number (painted large on both sides) they can almost always be found on Wikipedia or another shipping site (Warships of the World is good)
etc etc

I guess this must be a boy thing.....

Visitors!

Anyone visiting Knossos on May 10 should look out for some fossilized remains from the proto palatial era.

Re: How to Watch UK TV Abroad

I just wish I could pay a fee for the privilege of watching.

Me too, and I'm sure we're not alone. You'd think they would have worked out a way of offering an encrypted service to anyone outside the UK who's prepared to pay the (equivalent of) the licence fee.
