I gather that the one in Chania is also for all the classes organised by KEE. And I had images of our names being called out and us all trooping across a stage to be individually presented with our certificates neatly rolled up and tied with a red ribbon by someone important like Karamanlis. Ahh wel...

Do You Check Supermarket Bills?

We use a mixture of Lidl, Champion and local shops for our weekly needs. A typical Lidl bill would be around 50 Euro. We were shopping in Lidl yesterday and the bill was 110 Euro although we hadn't bought anything out of the ordinary. This prompted me to check the bill before leaving the store. I th...

Our free first level Greek course finished back in mid February. Yesterday I got a phone call from the teacher to tell us that there will be a presentation event on Saturday at the Cultural Centre in Chania when we will all receive our certificates. He, of course explained all this in Greek. Unfortu...

... I would get cash in a month the same money as I used to earn in a day in London 10 years ago... Sorry to bleat on about one of my favourite topics again, but Paul's statement is only true if he actually gets given the cash at the end of the month. How many people in the UK do you know who do no...

Paul, Kilkis, RIC, Ray, Top Driller (Who are less than 1% of registered users on LIVING IN CRETE ) why not join these forum`s.... Another statistic for you Allan. Ray has his own web site. Among the hundreds of articles and links on that web site, as far as I can see, there is a single link to a bl...

Actually Warwick, there probably is a bigger pie. If the developed countries helped the less developed counties to economically produce food then the so called pie would be considerably larger. I will happily concede that point, Jon. I was thinking more about conventional energy sources rather than...

So nobody wants to have a crack at the first challenge. Perhaps nobody is interested. Still I will press on. As with many con-tricks, it is what you don't tell the mark that is important. As a simplistic example, if you are trying to sell someone the Brooklyn bridge you don't tell them that you don'...

Well it might not be relevant but have you tried changing the CMOS battery? On desktop PCs it is usually a button cell somewhere between 10 and 20 mm in diameter held onto the motherboard by a metal clip. If the PC is old it may be dead. While the BIOS itself is probably in flash memory it might be ...

Why does it have to be an either/or Ray? For example why don't Europe, the USA, Japan etc, i.e. all the wealthy countries, abandon all trade barriers tomorrow with all countries in the world that have problems feeding and maintaining the health of their population and cancel ALL debt to those countr...

The following is a response to the Tom Kondis part of the post by Ray on the locked thread. Tom Kondis’ article is impossible to analyse on a statement-by-statement basis because most of the statements are so confused. To try to do so would not clarify anything. Instead this is the mechanism that is...

I am not sure which of my statements you think reflect a belief in an "ideal scenario", Paul, so I am not sure how to respond. We seem to agree that alternative energy generation technologies are one key answer. How is this going to come about? As far as I can see it has to be government d...

Unfortunately, John, Yes it is too simple. Your initial statements are true but the conclusion isn't. The carbon cycle is a dynamic system not a static system. Carbon is being exchanged between various reservoirs. In such a dynamic system the RATE at which you change one component does have a signif...

There is nothing to stop a new thread being started so long as it is kept in good order. " OK, Paul, I will post both replies here. One of them might be useful when I get to the second challenge. Just one point you have never made clear Warwick, what exactly do you think is the general solutio...

For those not familiar with AVG, it might be worth adding that you can get the free download from http://free.grisoft.com/ww.download?prd=afe

Warwick

PS I've not used it but in tests it comes out as the best free software.

So you see discussion of climate change as a contest John? It suggests that you like a challenge. Lets see what we can do. You clearly think the articles cut and pasted by Ray are important. I’ve also noticed that people who are sceptical about climate change often refer to the global warming theori...
