Misumena vatia? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misumena_vatia The females camouflage themselves, and can be pale green. According to my trusty insect book, they can walk sideways like a crab, but shouldn't do you any damage.

Hi all, I know Lavouta and Expert (who don't have a desiccant one online) so I guess a wander round Chania is on the cards. Yes, I can get one from Amazon (is there anything you can't?!) but I'm happy to pay a bit more and buy one here, if it means I can take it back if faulty. Stuart - I'd recommen...

Flying with your dog as hand luggage

Has anyone flown with their small dog as 'hand luggage' from/to eg Chania - Paris and then driven into the UK from there? If you have, any advice please? This seems an obvious way to save money transporting a small dog, compared to flying them cargo, or driving the whole way there and back. More imp...

Is there a coral reef on Chrysi island?

Has anyone swam around Chrysi/ΧΡΥΣΗ island, south of Ierapetra? Is there a (hard) coral reef there? Some years ago, the CIC advertised a trip to Chrysi ... "a divers' paradise... the only coral reef on Crete". I would love to go there, but my searching on google or...

Countersunk...

I had trouble finding one a few years back, apart from some bizarre high tec adjustable thing, which cost about 12 euros (and I still can't work out how it worked.) Eventually, I brought one from the UK. I'm off to Sketakis in the morning, hopefully, so will check then. HB

Replacement gas cylinder for office chair?

Anyone know where to buy replacement gas cylinders (the pneumatic bit under the seat that shoots the seat up) for office chairs? Chania area. I can't recollect even seeing a shop selling office chairs/furniture here! Thanks.

Wanted: Oven glue & aircon repair person

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know where I can get "High Temperature Silicone oven glass glue" in the West Chania area? The seal round my oven door has come unstuck.

(Totally unconnected!) Could anyone recommend someone who repairs aircon units in the Chania area?

Thanks.
