Any diabetics in Crete?

So far, I have found a remarkable lack of knowledge in healthcare for diabetics considering that the latest estimate is that 1 in 3 suffer from type 2 diabetes. If you have diabetes and would like to share your experiences in Crete, diet and exercise advice etc please email me using an email address...

Thanks for the idea

Actually, I bought a glue gun several years ago and have never used it.
Now I'll have a good time thinking about the label. I suppose I could be boring & use a standard warning symbol but perhaps it could become a picture gallery

DEH electricity Bill

I was about to sit with my Greek granddaughter to translate the bill so I could understand what I'm paying for. Working on the principle that one should avoid re-inventing the wheel, has anyone actually done it? I was thinking of photocopying, adding comments to the photocopy & then scanning in ...

Lidl door

I cannot recommend this. After much effort, got the door made & hung but it is so bowed that it is useless - over 5cm gap at top corner. Maybe the tension required to keep the netting taut is too much for the very flimsy frame. Magnetic "catches" useless. I am fitting proper catches wi...

Receipts & how to get them

What can you do if, say, a garage refuses to give a receipt?
Too late if you've already filled up.
Perhaps a Greek speaker will tell me how to say "I will want a receipt" before a purchase is made but it might be a bit insulting to vendors who are honest & would give a receipt anyway.
