Re: Fire Wood

I can second the above from Peebee, excellent seasoned wood and he insists on showing you the weighbridge weight so you know you are getting the correct load.....he also gives you a small gift each time! Excellent English and a really nice guy.

Re: mirroring to TV.

[quote]26 Mbps is pretty high for Crete? Presumably you have the 30 Mbps or 50 Mbps DSL service rather than the 24 Mbps ADSL service? I can't get that where I am but I probably wouldn't bother if it were to become available as I am happy with speed I get now.[/quote] Warwick, he is referring to Toow...

Re: mirroring to TV.

A friend who just came over from the UK brought me Amazon's Alexa (Google it - Echo Dot) as a Christmas present, I have to say, for playing UK radio, it's fantastic and responds in a nano second. I use a Greek IP and have no problems accessing UK radio including the BBC. In addition to the radio, Al...

Re: English TV channels

Simply forget FilmOn from now on. Google UKTVNow (not available from PlayStore) and download the app, provides most UK Channels in good quality and free. If installing on an Android based device, in your security settings, check "allow other apps" or whatever your device might say in order...

Re: House Insurance

We used to insure with Intasure and they did the same trick with us, raising premiums and an admin fee after the first year, when questioned what the admin fee was for, they couldn't give an explanation which just confirmed my suspicion that it was just profiteering. They reduced the premium slightl...

Re: Heating Oil

There is a site I used to use in the UK which worked the same way, they rely on the public uploading the data to be accurate. I understand people wanting to use the same garage (especially for the eggs, honey etc lol) but it is, none the less, a useful tool and if you run LPG, perhaps more useful as...

Re: Heating Oil

People may find this of use, I find it quite accurate and updated regularly, it helps if you are going somewhere to plan to stop & fill up if you might be in the area of the cheapest fuel, the difference is quite often around 5-8 cents in Chania compared to local filling stations. http://www.4re...

Re: Electric Bill

I got my Estimated bill in August with NO discount shown and my full bill in October with NO discount shown despite always paying on time. I don't pay by direct debit, I pay manually online via my bank but always on time, is this maybe the reason or will I have to wait until the December estimated b...
