Re: Photos

To me, the brilliance of Phil's photos is that he saw what many of us do not see and he is quick enough to take the photo. It's like the artist who paints a landscape, not like a photo but with some part or with colours that seem impossible to the ordinary eye but correct in the whole. I would like ...

Re: Rugby Football in Souda

I hope there is more than one rugby team, otherwise it could get a bit boring The general idea is for Greek students who are learning English to experience some English culture, in this case, sport. So, on the day, they will play rounders, hockey, cricket and rugger among other sports, not in match...

Re: Windows 10 automatic update from 7 or 8.1

I did not install Windows 7 on my PC because two programs would not have run. I found this out from a program I downloaded free. Is there any equivalent to check the progs on my Windows 7 laptop?

Re: Easter Saturday/Sunday Catholic cathedral, Chania

I am not sure how exclusively relying on the Bible isolates you from the influence of the established churches since the Bible is simply a collection of manuscripts that the established church of the day decided would be included?

Re: Easter Saturday/Sunday Catholic cathedral, Chania

The date of Easter has been in dispute for some hundreds of years when one group adopted a different calendar from another. To a Christian of any "flavour", the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus is vital to his or her faith such that, to many, it is the most important event of all...

Re: clock

What was wrong with the button thing you twisted to move the hands. Clocks should have hands not digital l...

Windows 10 automatic update from 7 or 8.1

A friend discovered that her computer was being updated to Windows 10 and was locked for several hours. On the same day, I received an email giving advice what to do, quoting this site|: http://enews.download.com/ct/34213236:WoEvfWCNi:m:1:680279117:2AC8093BB07257C0AD56A9BE6D6AF831:r I have not tried...
