Lloyds e-mail

I have had 2 e-mails from Lloyds Bank. The subject is "unusual log in attempts".
As neither my husband or myself have an account with Lloyds, I deleted them both, unread.
Has anyone else had these e-mails?

Re: Ship furniture or buy locally?

It really depends on what you like. I admit that I don't like the furniture that is offered for sale here on Crete. However I am very happy with the built in furniture that was made for us by local carpenters. Everything from large wardrobes, kitchen cupboards, bookshelves, TV and computer furniture...

Re: Pro's and Con's

It is such a personal feeling, whether to buy or rent. Personally, I could never rent because I wanted to make a garden. If it was not my property I would feel that it was hardly worth planting the snowdrops. But that is the way I feel. I did have problems at first and it would have made sense to re...

Does anybody want?

Does anybody want a water lily? I have three in my little pond and one of them has outgrown it's space. I intend to take a piece of it off, which will happily transplant into another pond or water tight pot. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8383/8683853254_084d7f4922_c.jpg 124 by Daisyincrete , on Fli...

Re: Water

Thank-you Maud and Moggieman. That is a good idea Moggieman. However, I can't see just a gravity feed doing the job properly. Some of the beds are 12' wide. I doubt that a gravity feed would have the oomph to reach throughout the beds. But then I don't really know. That is why I really need someone ...

Water

Does anybody know of someone in the east of the island who knows about water? After 8 years, I am tired of hand watering my garden every fortnight in the summer, but I have no idea how to install an irrigation system. The trouble is, that it is a very uppy-downy garden and I don't know how to regula...

Re: Photos

Filippos, your photos no.1 and 10 show the seed heads of Tragopogon. There are close to 150 different Tragopogon. I thought yours to be Tragopogon pratensis, but they could be Tragopogon porrifolius,(salsify) depending on whether the flowers were yellow or purple.

Re: Photos

Great photos Filippos. I particularly like the ones of the bee, the poppy and the Tragopogon pratensis. Did you know that it has a second common name? "Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon" :)

He is back!

There are not many things that I miss from England now that I live in Crete. One of the few, is the garden robin. In England, there was always a robin following me around in the garden. Even at work, the local robin would come and greet me as I got out of my car on arrival. He knew that I always car...

Re: Film on Skype

Thank-you for your reply filippos. That is what I am afraid of. It wouldn't have been anybody playing a prank and I believe that when one finishes a Skype call, the webcam is turned off.
The thing is I don't know how to delete it. Can anyone help?

Film on Skype

Whilst I was talking to my daughter on Skype a couple of days ago, I adjusted the picture size to show the adverts down the right hand side. Amongst the adverts was a short film of myself sitting in my living room, watching the television. I did not do this. It was taken some time in the last 6 week...

Re: rain rain go away

We have had two days of rain in June here in the east of the island. This coming after a long, cool spring and early summer has been great for the garden. All the flowers are lasting a long time.

Mobile Hairdresser

Is there a mobile hairdresser in the Aghios Nicholos/Sitia area?
I have managed to break my leg and cannot get into town.

Re: Did you feel that?

I forgot to say that we did have some damage. One of the painted Easter eggs rolled out of the bowl on to the floor and cracked. It was the winning egg too! This was the egg that had beaten all of the neighbour's eggs and remained intact. Disaster!
