Re: Storm Clouds.

(Sorry) I didn't make any distinction between Europe EU - I was referring to the physical land mass that is Europe.

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...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

I just tried to reply (and it disappeared) to say (essentially) that we are on the same page re olive harvest and the pruning story - ditto to Jeff. I had got the idea that you were doing the harvest in the relatively small window of opportunity, and then leaving the clean up (or at least the other ...
