Thanks Warwick. We usually go to the KEP office by the Dikastiria in Chania and they take the books, fill in the forms, do the leg-work and give us the books back in about 7 to 10 days.

We were going there today but read your post first, so will go next week instead.

I guess the deafening silence means no-one here produces such doors. Thanks to all the readers!

garage doors

Does anyone know where an 'old fashioned' for want of a better phrase 'up-and-over' garage door can be found - like the ones you see so often in the UK?

Definitely NOT the more fashionable 'roller-blind' type.

thanks.

New OTE boxes

Does anyone know what is inside the new OTE boxes that are springing up around the place? Local line distributors or small exchanges? To do with fibre-optics or not?

The first thing I do when I get one of those messages is to check it against a couple of hoax sites. Never fails!

I completely agree with you Paul. I also would not buy a cheap machine but if you look at the original post, 400 Euro was too expensive. I was trying to find him something less than 400 Euro. Warwick As before folks, thanks. It'snot that €400 was too much, it just 'seemed' to be a bit steep. From y...

Might you get better service from a dealer from whom you bought a car rather than taking a foreign vehicle to a dealer who has no great reason to look after you? You might find a local service garage who would service the import but will they have the diagnostic kit needed for a modern vehicle [ass...

EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD

I guess this applies to all nationalities, not just Brits, but have just had a letter and form in the post indicating that wef 1 May 2010, the responsibility for issuing this card is no longer the member state where we are now living, but the UK. Accordingly one has to send back the form and expect ...

New PC

Info please from anyone: What would I expect to have to pay for a new PC with windows XP and Office loaded up, (not to mention Freecell!) but without internet capability? Have been quoted €400 but that sounds a lot. Old PC is running Windows 98, with a rather nice Hyundai monitor (Image Quest QV770)...

So, in other words Paul, the idea that we have to collect receipts in order to get the tax-free allowance is a load of bunkum? That's what I'd expect, but am puzzled as to why commentators and the like keep on peddling the same old tripe!

Thanks for your input.

In the link that Carolina gave, is the following statement: "people are clamoring for receipts after the government announced in December they would be required to claim a standard income tax-free allowance that was previously granted automatically." I know that LOGIC is a Greek word, and ...
