Re: Why I feel smug.

Temperature predicted to be in the 20 to 24 C range and mostly sunny........ When I said to the waiter, "Αυτός ο καιρός είναι σαν την άνοιξη.", he contradicted me with, "Οϊ, είναι το καλοκαίρι." I agree about the need for some rain. P.S. "Οϊ " was the only way I could ...

Re: VODAPHONE MYSTERY

I was reading only a few days ago about a relatively new app that's likely to help the dishonest. I've been racking my brains to remember where I read it but to no avail. The basics of it are that enables a user to mask the number from which they are sending the message - not withholding it but ente...

First thing I'd do is contact Vodafone and EE if Vodafone can't explain.

Re: Scrap Dealer near Sitia?

You may be right, Jean, but who knows here? I could depend on whether anyone official knows of the car's being in Greece. We flew in and one of the first things we did was buy a car: it was more difficult getting rid of it 14 years later. If a local scrap dealer takes a vehicle for spares or plain s...

Re: Get a phone picture printed professionally

I always use Eyeland in Daskalogianni street. If you walk along there from the market end they're on the left about 50m before you get to 1821 Square. You can't miss the shop: floor (almost) to ceiling window usually with prints on the ledge inside. Speak to Alex who does all the printing. Price dep...

Re: Scrap Dealer near Sitia?

We scrapped our car two years ago and some documentation was required - two official forms. One was a ΒΕΒΑΙΩΣΗ ΠΑΡΑΛΑΒΗΣ / Acknowledgement of Receipt and the other a ΠΙΣΤΟΠΟΙΗΤΙΚΟ ΚΑΤΑΣΤΡΟΦΗΣ / Certificate of Destruction. My recollection's a bit hazy now but I think the Cert. of Destruction was issu...

Re: STIHL CHAINSAWS

There are several shops along Kidonias selling 'agricultural' power tools. I haven't needed such tools since selling our property but I remember see Stihl in at least two of the shops. If you're in Kidonias with the bus station on your left there'a a tool shop a few metres after the junction and ano...

Re: Oil central heating

That is probably a good thing since a large structure might involve you in building permit....... ......... and, possibly, additional property tax. If done without a building permit there's a high risk of the property being declared "illegal" with, at some stage, paying for legalisation. ...

Nah, I can't make the excuse of devilment, just weak will and 'cos I know you. Your horrid threat will strengthen my will to resist if I see similar from you in future.

I'll be surprised if you can't book with a phone and credit/debit card.

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

The reason we are looking at road all the way is the ferries from with minoan and anek do not have any selection for a van. Only minibus and campervans. I know people who have travelled several times with ANEK/Minoan and while I'm not sure of the sizes of the vans they drive I do know they don't al...
