Yesterday (Saturday) I collected the cash, not a cheque, from our insurance broker for my window which was broken by a garage. (See the thread "A Greek car insurance tale".) Good news, John. One question. What is a cheque? I'm told the problems can arise if you need to make a claim as the insurers ...

Oddly, and happily, after eight months my car has received fewer marks whilst in car parks than any car I had in the UK. Judging by the height/position/type of most of the bumps and scrapes on our car the most likely culprits are "bull bars" as fitted to a wide range of agrotika and 4x4s ( very com...

Second hand cars here are generally not particularly good value because they hold their price very well. Cretans aren't usually into the British habit of "must have the latest model/new registration" or whatever. Often, a vehicle that's replaced is passed down to a child, on to a younger sibling or ...

I love jokes but there is a requirement that they are funny, which I've always thought was the point of them.

My response would have been the same whoever had submitted the post.

In my experience it is virtually essential to switch such a PC on and off a couple of times per day or it will simply grind to a halt Or invest in a small utility program like C(rap)Cleaner which I think will work with older operating systems. It clears out all the rubbish that accumulates on a PC....

Are you sure you don't mean Methuselah Filippos :lol: Ken. Absolutely sure, Ken. Had I meant Methusalah I'd have said so. Methuselah allegedly lived for 969 years but didn't necessarily pre-date Moses. I did suggest to you a few days ago that you shouldn't put your own interpretation on my posts as...

Good point, which I'd forgotten, Jean. Blobby, you must have a tax number as it would be needed for the property purchase. A return will be needed even if it's only a "Nil". I'd act promptly because there are deadlines (set according to your tax number) for submitting the return and you'll be fined ...

I was in two minds as to whether or not to submit my first post bearing in mind how "search savvy" you are. I did see the link to your site up at the top.

In the end I posted because I thought, "What the hell, he might have missed it."

I not 100% sure but the answer is probably "yes". The tax man is going to want proof of the source of the money - i.e. pink slip - with which the deposit was paid. Safest to ask an accountant. If you want an intro to ours (in Xania) let me know. We think he's excellent and others have said good thin...

Hi Jean,

I just Googled Cape Spatha Crete and it came up with 10 page references (and offered a further search to include similar pages) most of which concerned the Battle of Crete, the German invasion and one about the Polish navy. I didn't read any detail but it may be worth a look.
