Re: Get rich quick?

All members 'promise to pay' and this becomes the share capital of the scheme. Someone then floats the company using this 'non existent' share capital and everyone is an equal owner of a massive corporation. It all falls down as their is no mention of how this [non existent] money will be used to cr...

Re: partial denture vs implants?

You obviously know the surgery involved for implants and the price differential so other than that the choice is yours. X rays to insure that the sinus cavity wont be effected are a must. But there is no 'breaking in' [sic] period for implants and once in place should be the same or better than your...

Re: Friendly question

The Apokoronas is quite a big area. Depends whether you want traditional village, tourist or ex pat orientated or something in between. Happy to meet as I'm sure a number of others would be, just PM. You may wish to contact Claudia at Crete Island Estates [native german speaker] for the Kalyves area...

Dog Training

We acquired a 5? month old GSD cross. Lovely with us and very intelligent but wants to run and chase and play with everything. Not appreciated by our cats. Her intelligence is quite confusing as we previously had bulldogs- bulldog owners will know what I mean. Not looking for perfection but 'come' w...

Re: Shocking bill ???

I can empathise - had a similar bill - about 200 euros - because of downloads. We moved to satellite -still a limit but its throttled when you exceed without exorbitant excess charges!
Windows 10 will be killing a few people with download limits I think!

Re: Touring Island on Moped

I agree about October BTW - I still try and avoid the downhill right hander coming out of Tsivaras during the first month of rain! I never like rear wheel steering on the track but on the road :!: Scooter v chopper v 'real' bike. I remember bike forums where fights broke out on that topic :D Whateve...

Re: Touring Island on Moped

Until you get used to the 'grip' available then a 600 might be a bit hot for most of the roads? At least in April May you can wear light protective clothing without heat exhaustion!! Remember to fight the temptation to follow the local custom to ignore helmet, gloves etc or the tourist idea of safet...

Re: The Fire Sale....

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes Not completely apt but we do tend, in a philosophical sense at least, to assume that there is an omniscient set of law givers who will be able to regulate the market to achieve our required ends. As with monetary policy often by the time the 'fix' is in place the market...

Re: Bye bye Tsipras

You don't get a "no austerity" choice! You get a 'no euro' and lots of austerity as the country goes bankrupt and floats a new currency based on ....? or The euro , with all the negatives [and 'even worse' the dependence on others] and lots of austerity I still think there is more chance ...

Maud,
not sure of your location but both Rethymnon and Apokoronas have programmes. If you want contacts let me know.

Re: Poison alert - Chania area

One of our worries about moving to Crete was the issue of animal cruelty. It has been pleasing to find that attitudes are, slowly, changing. Apokoronas is one of the very few who has faced up to this issue with the neutering program they are funding. House pets are now common BUT 'working' animals a...

Many thanks for the replies. Personally I think Dracunculus vulgaris sounds like something from a Hogwarts spell book but .... :D
