Re: Wind

The region of Earth receiving the Sun's direct rays is the equator. Here, air is heated and rises, leaving low pressure areas behind. Moving to about thirty degrees north and south of the equator, the warm air from the equator begins to cool and sink. Between thirty degrees latitude and the equator,...

Re: Greek Business

I have most certainly noted that you now talk about two free pair of glasses of a different (cheaper/lower) qualtity which you originally omitted to specify thus my apple/apple versus apple/cucumber comparison! Read what you have written!

Re: Greek Business

It is clear that the three pairs are not all the same specification and specification has a marked effect on price. Warwick So we no longer have an apple/apple comparison but apple versus cucumber or potatoe? Thanks for letting me know that specification has an effect on price, would never have tho...

Re: Greek Business

Interesting; As we pay double of the prices in Greece and in the UK you pay a third f what you pay in Greece we could actually go to the UK and pay 1/6 of the price in Norway or six pair for the price of one - sceptical! By the way; We do have Specsaver in Norway, 75 stores actually.

Re: Greek Business

OK, I can't claim the EOPYY subsidy but I get three pairs of glasses for about half what one pair cost me in Greece so I don't really care. And we are talking glasses with same quality thus an apple/apple comparison? Quite interesting as we find the prices in Greece (Crete/Kalyves) to be about half...

Re: Lots of new build skeleton properties?

You just don't get it do you? They started the build in the good days, before the crisis, expecting to sell but when the crisis came the buyers disappeared and the builders stopped further building. Does that mean that they ran out of money? Maybe, and maybe not. I know of quite a few houses that we...

Re: Lots of new build skeleton properties?

...I think they ran out of buyers?... In the case of a developer that amounts to the same thing. Warwick No. If you sell first and then build you don't run out of money as a developer. If you build, or start the build, before you have sold you may run out of money. Our neighbours had to wait upto 1...

I think they ran out of buyers?

We bought such a skeleton in 2011 and completed the build.

Re: Tourist Tax

Not happy with destroying the economy it seems the government is now bent on destroying the tourist industry. From 1/1/2018 they are bringing in a tourist tax based on each room. No idea how this is to be collected or applied, but will be an interesting time. This is quite common, at least in most ...
