Now that is something I didn't know before. Google doesn't work on Macs. I am truly amazed.

If the new airline is allowed to hire the staff it chooses and those not chosen are then given the option of voluntary redundancy or other posts then it might work. If, however, the staff can all choose to be employed by the new airline then nothing is resolved. It is not clear which situation appli...

FREE Greek Classes - Chania

KEE are hoping to run their FREE Greek classes again this winter. They are certainly planned for Chania and I would guess in Heraklion as well. Not sure about other locations. According to the enrolment form, there should be classes at three levels this year. Each class is 50 hours but I am not sure...

Just checked mine which I got about two and a half years ago and it is valid until March 2011. :D That's interesting. The following is a direct quote from the Which? article: "Three years ago, the EHIC replaced the E111 form.....According to the DoH, 2.8 million Britons have an EHIC card, but ...

If you really mean E111 then I think it became invalid when the EHIC was introduced 3 years ago whatever expiry date is on it?

If you can distinguish pre-war blues from house music then I suspect you can distinguish Rebetika from modern Greek pop.

EHIC Reminder

To anybody coming to Crete as a visitor, e.g. tourist/holiday home visits, and using an EHIC to give themselves medical cover, Which? are reminding people that the cards only last 3 years. They are NOT indefinite. The first cards issued, when they replaced the old E111, are now coming due for renewa...

One that I caught the last bits of in the mid 90's was where foreign purchasers of property on all the islands and within a certain distance of land borders had to be interviewed by the local Greek army bigwig for approval before being allowed to buy. I don't even want to think of the currency tran...

Now let's all gather on the moral highground and pelt stones down at anyone that hasn't.. I am not sure who this is aimed at? Certainly I am not looking for any plaudits. Nor am I criticising anybody else. I suspect LFB isn't either. I have stated before that everybody does what they can. That migh...

If the debit card is VISA you might stand a chance of getting something back. Give it a try.

I must confess to having some sympathy with LFB's comment. A little over a year ago we were adopted by four cats, mother and three kittens. The kittens were at the staggering about stage, eating solids but also suckling from mother. Basically we paid to have them all neutered, not a cheap propositio...

Either that or I must have been working too hard today.


I think the usual expression is, "My wife doesn't understand me." Unfortunately my wife understands me only too well.
