Re: Greek numbering and on-line banking

Another problem is when you want to enter a whole number of Euros. Is it 99,00 or just 99? It seems to vary with the application. Sometimes, 99 gets changed to 99,00 automatically.

Re: BBC programmes here

When I started this saga all those years ago, I said there were programmes I loved. I wonder what they were? Now I use Filmon and regularly cannot find anything I want to watch. Eggheads a couple of times a week when I'm in. The Queen's speech of course. Take away progs on house-selling, unreal &quo...

Re: Newbie

Hi. I know how you feel. I often go to taverna's and events on my own but here in Crete there is a big difference to England: the locals are extremely friendly. Always say hello in Greek to the waiters or bar staff. If there is a family group, just say hello and you may well be asked to join them - ...

Men's fragrancies in Chania

I am looking for good quality fragrances - Hugo Boss etc - to suit a typically laid-back teenager. Does anyone know where I can get it in Chania?

Illuminated road signs in Chania

I have seen two new illuminated signs in Chania. My Greek is not good enough to read them in the few moments they are visible to a driver so can anyone help please? The first is a big sign that is at the traffic lights on Souda Road at the turning that leads to the agricultural college (and AB super...

Re: A well written article

I am still amazed at the breadth of knowledge that Forum members have. It's all double dutch to me - and, I suspect, to the vast majority (and not just the unwashed ones).

Re: Projector and laptop stand

I appoached several shops of various types. At one, I got a straight no but the rest all took my phone number and promised to phone me when they had located one. After nearly two weeks I have heard nothing - very dissapointing when two of the shops had hitherto been my preference for their type. So,...

Removal companies

My best friends are moving house from Kokkino Chora to the Chania area and want to utilise a reliable moving company i.e. not man-with-a-van.

Any suggestions please

Re: Rugby World Cup 2015

I'll be watching a big screen at home with a few good mates - some from SA but no Aussies. We will sit in comfort, have a takeaway at half time and those who want to can have decent drink. No over-loud voices that give me a headache. No standing! Good view for all. No, Danny, a harbour bar is defini...
