Re: 500 - Internal Server Error

I don't want to speak too soon, but I think you might both be right, Warwick and Paul. This morning is the first time since about the New Year that I have been able to log on to LiC without getting Internal Server Error, Unknown Host or -- perhaps most frustrating of all -- the blue wheel of death g...

Re: Campervans in Crete .

As with so many things Greek, I think a lot depends on who you are, where you are and how bold you are. A man in a campervan (I think he was German or Swedish) was parked for the entire summer this year within spitting distance of the coastguard station at Sitia ferry port. The coastguards tried to ...

Re: Vehicle Tax 2017

That's odd. Is the Tax Office "punishing" diesel owners? My 1.2 (petrol) Hyundai tax has risen by only 9 euros.

Re: Olive Harvest

It can vary from one olive grove to another just yards away, George .. all depending on the wind direction and -- crucially -- the amount of rain. Since you mention Kato Zakros, you might be aware that there was hardly a drop of rain in the "east end" all summer and autumn, but there were ...

Re: Visa Waiver System

The Mail isn't the only one to play this trick, Warwick. Today's Times has a front page headline that screams: "Tories split over Farage role in deal with Trump." A Cabinet row? Senior ministers involved? No, when you actually read the story this "split" consists of a Tory party ...

Re: Round and Round We Go

How extraordinary. Brexiteers are squealing like stuck pigs because the High Court has upheld the sovereignty of Parliament. Are these not the same people who were demanding that we "take back control" throughout the referendum campaign?

Re: No Water

It happens, Blighty. They might be working on the pipes, or just cutting supplies because there's a general shortage all over the island. The taps will soon be running again. Always a good idea to have some bottled water for these eventualities.

Re: Capital Control Issues

... But surely most people selling property today will be taking a huge hit on the price they paid for it, therefore there will have been no gain, so no tax to pay? There might be various other sales/transaction taxes I suppose, but if you make a loss and no capital gain, there can be no "capit...

Re: Property Purchase

... Just seems to prove what I've been saying for years: for every accountant in Crete you will get a different version of what is required. I am in the same position as Danny, ie not resident for tax purposes in Greece and all tax due collected in another country. BUT, my accountant in Crete says a...

Re: Bonfires

I think that's right, although people in our neck of the woods don't seem to worry about setting the hillsides on fire as they've been cheerfully lighting fires for the past month or so.

Re: Lost dog ?

Looks like he's yours if you want him, peebee! This tends to happen around this time of year when the "hunting" season (aka rabbit shooting) begins, and all those macho boys in their camo trousers discover that the dogs don't always do as they are told. The answer: drive the dog to a villa...

Re: BT Internet email issues

Interesting post, David, as I started having problems this evening with my BTInternet/Yahoo email on my phone .. Very slow loading of incoming mail, the blue wheel of death going round and round etc. I wondered if it had anything to do with the mass hack of Yahoo accounts reported a week or so ago? ...
