In general I agree with you, Miriam, but I just have this slight niggling doubt. I have learned over many years that politicians always lie. You cannot deduce the truth from anything they say but you can sometimes get close by observing what they do. All the published evidence so far suggests that H...

Katharine.


In these country areas you have to get your kicks where you can.

I was doing some work with an American engineer recently who also does some evening teaching at a local college in Arkansas. The whole college campus is non-smoking both inside buildings and outside. Loads of people are injured in road traffic accidents every week as students rush to their cars betw...

Another one. Fat kills. We don't have much longer, Warwick.


Rather than reduce the fat content I prefer to thin it down with the application of alcohol.

Yes, I have heard this, Kathleen, from others. Also, now that smoking is banned on aircraft, I understand that they use the air filtration less than before, so that infectious sneezes or coughs may spread more easily. Ray It's not really filtration that is the problem but fresh air make up. All rec...

...You see just about anyone can publish a paper and just about anyone can then use it to back up a point. The fact that the publisher may have little or no standing in the community, that the paper was regarded as the ravings of a loony are conveniently overlooked... Funny, Paul, but when I raised...

Martin might mean Apollo parking with the entrance on Marko Botsari, not far from Multirama. I think this one is better known than the one under Inter@ctive.

It's perhaps worth noting that it is not always the "evil Greek builders" that cause the problem. Some people who live near us bought a house, off plan, on the understanding that it would be detached from the planned adjacent house, which had not been sold. Between them signing the contrac...

We find post from the UK to Crete typically takes one week but post from Crete to the UK is quicker. That includes small packages. It also depends on which day of the week it is posted. I think sorting services and internal transport in the UK work through the weekend while in Greece they don't. War...

I'll have to investigate other e-mail clients, I suppose, or get used to ignoring ........ize, color, etc. Outlook Express allows you to use English (United Kingdom) under "Tools" - "Options" - "Spelling" You can also set up many accounts with different email addresses...

My father in law always said that the only good thing to come out of Yorkshire was the road to Lancashire but I suspect he might have been just a touch biassed.

Is it a big problem then to have a house built or is it just finding the 'right' builder ?? It's not necessarily a big problem but it can be slow. From saying, "Yes, we will have that plot of land" to "Here are your keys" was about 2 years. No problems. No big hold ups. Can be l...

I've no experience but you could try contacting Bentley Walker, see http://www.bentley-walker.com/services_region2.php They seem to cover Crete although it is not clear if they have any installation agents here. Also they seem a bit shy of revealing costs. It probably won't be cheap. Because you wil...
