Strangely enough, I have a sneaking feeling that we also have a slight leak behind a wardrobe. No water evident but I think mould is forming there. If we do then it is from the pitched part of the roof.

We recently sent a small present to an English friend in Kilkis, who has had a baby, and have just received a card back from her. Some of the things she is facing from the Greek family: 1 Going crazy that the baby is only in a nappy when the temperature is 40 C. It will catch its death of cold. 2 Sp...

How do you make a choice? So far we have had relatively minor ailments and have used IKA. The treatment we have received has been excellent. We have lots of young Greek friends who have had babies. All had IKA insurance. All went private. None of them were wealthy and in some cases were hard pushed ...

Errrr. Half and half. Must admit we haven't used the flat bit much. Too hot this summer. If you are about to say it was mildly warm, Filippos, Shut up! We've got leakage into the boiler room but none so far into the main part of the building.

When I can find my glasses and remember where I left the zimmer, I'll go outside and check again. John Good grief, John, we must be having a moment of empathy. When I read the thread about humidity I almost posted that it is to be hoped that our rain doesn't spread to the east or it will rust their...

Strewth you guys. I thought the golden rule was, "If you can remember it you weren't there." Any minute I expected to read, "Six penneth of chips! Shear luxury! We used to dream of having six penneth of chips!" My early influences were pre-war jazz and blues played on the gramoph...

I would agree with you wholeheartedly, Assimilate.

No resource on earth is infinite. The faster we use it the sooner it runs out.

In many cases saving energy is done with no loss of real amenity and often a gain in economy yet people still will not do it. I cannot understand why.

I think Dora is also a possible successor to Karamanlis?

Thanks Carol. I had always assumed he was part of the Venizelos clan. I will write out 500 times, "Must check my facts more carefully before posting".

All my Greek friends, who are all quite well educated, told me that they couldn’t understand a word Venizelos says. Apparently he constructs very convoluted sentences and uses rather archaic phraseology. Another thing to consider is ditching Papandreou for Venizelos would just be switching from one ...

Note also there was a new allocation system this time so seats won and lost in 2004 are not a true reflection of the varience compared against 2007 results But presumably the percentages of votes cast are a good representation. I think these show quite a big movement of votes to minor parties. Warw...

I have no allegiance to any party but if ND are going to be in power I guess it is better that they have an outright majority and don't need to rely on support from LA.OS other wise we might be reinstating the Grand Plan and invading Northern Epirus and Asia Minor.
