Re: Hello

NB Bins without cats are often still a mess. This is down to humans who should know better and aren't looking for food because they are starving.

Re: Skype Update

I gave up with Skype about 12 months ago after I discovered it had been taken over by Microsoft. As a Mac user I don't have a Microsoft account, shock horror! I found my contacts were still there but couldn't access all my credit without a Microsoft account. I managed to open a Microsoft account but...

Re: Storm Clouds.

"You never know maybe Greece will also kick out the Russians, Americans and anyone else who is not a member of the EU?,"

Well I doubt it as deals have been done with Russia, America and China! Not sure how they are fixed in relation to health care?

Re: Storm Clouds.

I am sure there are people on the forum who could not vote but support Brexit. I do not want to insult anyone but I sometimes get very cross about the awful uncertainty of knowing what the future holds. I have a few relatives in the UK who voted Brexit and still want to leave and relatives who voted...

Re: Storm Clouds.

There's being happy and burying your head in the sand. Oh how I wish Brexit hadn't happened! But it has and IF there ceases to be any agreement over reciprocal health care or EHIC cards and the UK starts to keep a data base on people out of the country for more than 6 months then we will have to sel...

Re: satellite dish

I think you are thinking of Hi Tek. They have a very good reputation I believe. We also have Tooway from Bentley Walker, which we can't fault.

Re: Car hire in UK

The Sixt advice line is Scottish based. I asked the young man for his name and asked if I could contact him if there were any problems, his answer.. No problem, contact me on this number if there's a problem, but there won't be. Debit cards are fine apparently as long as they are for British banks a...

Re: Car hire in UK

Usually hire from Sixt at Manchester Airport. They are happy with debit card, UK licence, passport and number from dvla. They said they aren't bothered about proof of address with a British debit card and licence. We always phone their advice line first though to double check!

Where are the cats?

Hope it's just a coincidence but around 12 of the bin cats in Xirosterni seem to have disappeared in the last few days. Having driven through everyday since Friday, I've only seen a couple each day. There has been food put out on the wall by the bins but no sign of the usual throng of hungry felines...

To get an S1 ie, recipricol healthcare, an IKA book as current state pensioners do.

Could of course be ...

Re: Residence permits

Assuming that it is still possible to get reciprocal health care post Brexit at state pension age, how long do you need to have a residence permit?

Re: Brexit and the continuing healthcare

The article says everyone is entitled to healthcare but it doesn't say who is supposed to provide it!
