Re: Water Shortage

What's the legal position re people filling and keeping their wretched swimming pools topped up with mains water supply?

Europe has been free of war for the past seventy three years. The EU has played a major part in this miraculous development. So you wish to jeopardise this union by the voting to leave

So e.g. no war in Serbia, Bosnia, Kosova ?

New security check online purchasing

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/article-6012549/Shoppers-soon-need-code-use-card-online-year.html I'm sure I read on this forum about the above (but can't find the reference); anyway, because I don't have a mobile this new rule rather bothered me. I finally spoke to Barclays Visa a few days ago - I...

Mars is current closest to the earth since 2003 - I remember it then, very red and it felt like it was so close it might be plucked from the sky.

Apocalyptic conditions :)

That's pretty unusual unless you are tax resident.

That reads like they gave me a credit card - I've never asked for one :)

Re: Santander Debit Card

The Rethymnon branches are the pits; the Vamos branch is wonderful and well worth the drive rather than wait (usually about an hour) for so-called service :) I admit to loathing said bank also due to the Samaras connection.

Re: Santander Debit Card

may do what Barclays are doing now (BREXIT -related we think) and withdraw cards from non-UK residents. Spend while we can! I'm not sure that is 100 per cent accurate - at least 2/3 years ago, Barclays wrote to say they wouldn't issue a VISA card registered to a Greek address; they needed a UK addr...

Re: Junker

Sciatica/bad back pain would likely prohibit the *kissing* movements - he reminded me of Boris Yeltsin. (Irony) Well done Pres Macron for holding him up, and Mrs Merkel for kissing him (phew - what a sad indictment of the world). Never mind, probably Pres Trump might eclipse the Junk person.

Re: Heraklion Airport

I've been through late April and early June - I think they (who ever *they* are) have modeled it on nightmare Gatwick, but obviously as a scaled version. In April qeueing to buy a small bottle of water and then having to produce the boarding pass p***** me off somewhat. The airport has followed the ...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

Yep , I also prefer my own home grown red wine , if I go back to the UK I'm horrified by the price of wine and disappointed with the flavour ....I am interested to know what you can clean with raki , I must be missing a trick. My main cleaning agent is white vinegar (i.e. distilled) - I use surplus...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

You are a funny lot :) Jeff is right re *quality* of said raki - (when I make it) mine is organic from the day it was born but takes some *vigilance* to ensure the end product is as clean as it can be...I prefer organic red wine for my daily tipple, hence (mostly) I use raki for cleaning :) Fillipos...
