Re: That's all right then

I too picked out paragraphs 23 and 29 as being the most important. We just have to wait and see what happens in practice now! Bob.

Re: Getting rid of coins

I've probably missed the obvious BUT why collect the small change - i.e.USE it pay for small items eg bread, parking (f you have to)? You beat me to it with that question! Why on earth wouldn't you just want to offload the coins as soon as you can? In our experience, when paying a bill at a superma...

Piraeus bank in Kalyves charged me an additional 1.50 for the privilege yesterday. Bob.

Re: Car tax for 2018

Alpha Bank allows me to print out the page showing that I have requested the payment but it is possible to then cancel the payment so it is not proof that it has been made. The only proof that it has actually been made is the ledger line entry on the account statement but my understanding is that t...

Re: Car tax for 2018

...Worked OK for me too with Windows 10 and Firefox. Bob. Is that the new Firefox Quantum Bob or the earlier version of Firefox? I THINK it was the old version! I have just had a go at loading up the quantum version, but when I was told to close Firefox (and did) everything of course disappeared, i...

Re: Meet the Britsh Ambassador, Chania

Agree totally with Philipos and Carolina. There's nothing useful anyone can say about Brexit at the moment - so let's drop it for a while? Bob.

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

Once, during our early days in Crete, I hoped to impress our elderly neighbour, Georgos, who appeared to be waiting for a lift, by asking him in Greek if he was on the way to the market. I remembered that the word started with "L" and ended in "i" "Kalimera Georgo, sto Leka...

On the other hand, a diplomatic approach, perhaps via your local TOPIKOS (council rep) might be better. Good luck. In e...

Re: Organ donation in Greece

I think those who had lived in the UK between 1980 and 1996 are the ones who are banned from donating blood. Whatever nationality. Interestingly though, I have had four lots of surgery in Crete since arriving in 1997 and each time was asked to provide a donor. On one occasion an Albanian friend made...

Does that explanation also apply to the widespread misuse of subject and object pronouns? My wife and I wouldn't know. No-one has told me!
