Re: Firefox thinks I am Greek

If you click on Tools and then Options a new tab should open showing various Firefox options. It should default to General. Scroll down the page a bit and you should see Language and below that "Choose your preferred language for displaying pages". Click on the Choose button and make sure ...

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

As far as I am aware, people who have an IKA book through an S1 form cannot renew it online. KEP tried for me a couple of years ago but said it wasn't possible. I am not sure what the situation is if you have an IKA book because you are working and contributing to IKA.

Re: Mobdro

...then all the adverts for games and apps keep popping up very frequently interupting your programme.... You can't really expect somebody to provide you with a service but not to have to pay for that service, either with money or by suffering adverts. ...Mobdro is no longer the best option IMO for...

Re: The Greek Ombudsman

I had another thought about the Apostille stamp. While the FCO do not verify the content of a document, simply that any stamp or signature is valid, they might be able to state something along the lines that: "The attached document is a valid UK Marriage Certificate. The purpose of the document...

Re: The Greek Ombudsman

I'm afraid Greek bureaucracy can be immensely stubborn. When my wife died the Greek registrar in the local council office completed one part of the death certificate incorrectly. The probate court would not accept the certificate and the registrar refused to alter it, because she claimed that the wa...

Re: The Greek Ombudsman

Have you tried asking the British Consulate for help? Perhaps a letter from them written in Greek on Embassy headed note paper signed by the Consul. Head the letter UK Marriage Certificate. Then something along the lines of: "To whom it may concern, column 4 on a UK Marriage Certificate is head...

Re: Mobdro

In my experience what you can get onto a Smart TV is pretty limited. While they typically use the Android operating system it is not open as it is on a tablet or smart phone. Also what you can install seems to vary depending where the set was bought, i.e. a Samsung smart TV bought in the UK will hav...

Any "wise" Cretan man that wants to come and eat my "delicious" Oxalis, Nettles, Thistles, Brambles (no fruit) and Ivy is welcome to it, Clio.

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

To clarify: 1 When property tax was collected on the electricity bill it was NOT called ENFIA it was called EETA. 2 The last EETA payment payment was in 2014 and was for the year 2013. My last payment was on 31/3/2014 but that will vary depending on people's billing date. 3 EETA changed to ENFIA in ...

Re: Flights Stansted Summer 2018

I didn't think of Jet2 as I tend to associate them more with Leeds Bradford but they do indeed fly from Stansted to Heraklion as Nigel says.

Re: Good Old Lidls

Some of their cereals are quite good at about half the price of brands, their fruit and veg is usually very fresh and they have a good choice of reasonably priced wines.

PS I wouldn't recommend their gin. Strange after-taste.

Re: Good Old Lidls

What on Earth would you put in a salad drawer anyway? I have my own theory about salad. When food goes off it typically goes mouldy. What colour is mould? Green. Never eat anything green - it has obviously gone off. Great pictures. Fancy a month in the west completely planning a garden from scratch....

Re: Flights Stansted Summer 2018

As far as I can see the only airlines flying from Stansted to Crete are Ryanair and Tui . Ryanair flies from Stansted to Chania while Tui flies from Stansted to Heraklion. If you are prepared to widen the departure point Thomas Cook flies from Gatwick to Heraklion and Easyjet flies from Luton and Ga...

Re: Post box vandalism in Kalyves

Had it definitely been forced, Bob? I once had the experience of posting a letter and it falling straight out of the bottom of the box. In that case the postman had not shut the flap correctly when he last collected the mail. Slammed it shut and all was well. Personally I don't trust the boxes much....
