In 2003 California had the worst forest fires. Then in the winter with the heavy rainfall, we had mudslides because the vegetation was stripped and nothing holding the mountain.

I imagine you're also finding Carol's Living in Crete book interesting as it's packed with useful information. Hi Filippos, Downloading and printing your book was...

I forgot to mention that here in the USA our standard paper is 8.5 x 11 inches which is the equivalent to your A4 paper.
