Snow at Omalos?

Happy Christmas, everyone!

Anyone been up to Omalos and know if there's snow up there? Proper measurable snow, not just some bits of ice. Looks like there might be from where we live, but if there isn't, we're off down the beach!

En Kipo off the Mournies Junction, 28210 70700
You could also try Xeroyiannakis, 28210 94880 They often have slightly unusual things, I'm told. If they have it, I can send you directions (will have to think about them first). May I ask what you're looking for?

Seen a small fan?

I'm looking for a small fan (electrical kind, not football!) I'd like one about 20cm across, to sit on a desk. Every shop I've been to has them about 30cm plus. Have you seen one anywhere? Is there even a shop just for fans?! Chania/West of Chania area. Thanks.

Church (Mosque?) near Chania Hospital

Does anyone know anything about the rather run down church near Chania hospital? It should be bang in the middle of this google map. http://goo.gl/maps/5BDtm The dome is actually dusky pink, rather than white (as it looks like here) and there's a little cross on top of it. However, something about t...

List of current blue flag beaches here http://www.eepf.gr/blueflag/awards2012 Is it actually a blue flag beach? Or do people just like to say it is? There's a beach near Kissamos where someone's hand written "blue flag" on a very old notice board, but saying it doesn't make it so, eh? Also...

Where can I get a scooter...?

... in the Chania area? Not the thing with an engine, but something like this

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cox-Swain-Scooter-Super-Size/dp/B003DRLE6Q/ref=sr_1_5?s=sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1339850492&sr=1-5

Tried Jumbo, but no joy. Anyone seen one recently?

Thanks

You might have been incredibly lucky and seen a monk seal, which I've read are the only seals in the Med. However, they're critically endangered (only 500 or so left) so I doubt it. It's possible you saw a loggerhead turtle - they're mating and laying eggs at the moment. As they bobble about in the ...

High load shelf brackets needed

Have you seen any high load shelf brackets recently in the Chania (ideally West Chania) area? Approx 20-25cm. I can find the thin white ones that cost a euro or so everywhere, but they're not strong enough. Alex Pak once sold strong brackets, but I haven't seen them in there for a while. Thanks in a...

...and Forthnet customer services/fault reporting

Could anyone say from their experience whether Forthnet are actually quicker at sorting out problems than OTE? I appreciate that if you report a fault to Forthnet, then they probably have to pass it on to OTE anyway. However, I'm wondering if Forthnet are a bit more customer focussed, so will chase ...

Fault reporting to OTE

Morning everyone, If I call OTE to report a fault on my line, should they give me some kind of reference number/call log number? Usually I've found them pretty quick (well, quick enough) to sort problems out and I've never had to call more than once, but this time I've had problems for three weeks a...

Have just signed up with S4UVPNSurfer, at a bargain three months for £10. As promised, it was up and running within the hour. Only slight hiccup was they didn't tell me my email address was my username, and also my order number was the logon domain. I needed these to activate the VPN. I've mailed th...
