Rumor has it that within 2 years we will lose all Sky programs so if that is true I would not waste my money on Sky. You know that we are receiving less now that we were.

Numnuts the visitor has in deed been here before. If he drives over on the right hand side of the road he will hit anything from a tree, dead dog, boulder or even a Cretan chatting on the phone. (wishful thinking) Suggest it may be better to re-educate the Cretan driver who lives here all year to sl...

The best answer is get some good top soil and spread it about. Moved into our current house 5 years ago and first thing was 40 tonnes of soil for the various borders and plots we have. Hard work with a pick, shovel and wheelbarrow but we are now virtually self sufficient in fruit, veg and salad bits...

Looks like Bob is correct as it appears that the new postie has to do 15 villages and we may never have a delivery again. Not certain which villages he covers but suggest tha...

No not true that the TV must be attached to a telephone line as it can be on Wifi if no telephone socket is available in the room. I know some people using the card here but would like some more info please. Yes there is a minimum 1 year contract.

Been told that if we get a Sky Multiroom card from the UK at £10.25 per month we can get many more channels than at present. Before we arrange this with our friends back home, does...

Hi,

Picked up Pink Slips yesterday from ATE Bank in Kalives and as usual not asked for anything other than passport. No problems so suggest your bank is trying to invent something else. Jobs for the boys/girls.

IKA Book Updates.

The other half has noticed that her IKA book has not been updated this year. In a way at least She has been well and has not needed it. Am I correct in thinking we can get the local KEP office to update it for her as we do not have time to spare waiting in the IKA office in Xania? Your experience in...

Hi, One other point to be aware off is the swimming pool. I have heard of builders who have built pools with the houses and although they have been paid to get the licence they never did so. If you have a pool make certain you have the licence or if not a copy otherwise you may have an illegal const...
