Here you go. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Leg-of-Lamb-Stuffed-with-Greens-and-Feta-231777 I am amazed to recall that mia fora k’ ena kairo I used to spend all day preparing a poncey dish like that. These days I’d much rather serve the cheese and horta as appetisers to the simply-barb...

Hotmail Security

I've had the same Hotmail address, the same password, for a decade with no problems. I keep the "save my email address' box ticked so when I log on to the site my address is filled in automatically. Yesterday when I logged on there was a strange address in the box - a dodgy sounding one startin...

There are left luggage lockers, each big enough to hold a medium-sized suitcase, in the metro station hall which is right beside the ferry port, just across the main road from the harbour entrance which will take you to the Crete ferries. Alternatively, if the lockers are full: if you are happy to l...

It’s a toss-up really., Rethymno is nearer to Chania than it is to Heraklio, and to my mind the journey Chania-Rethymno is pleasanter. Let us assume you manage to get off the ferry (either one) at around 5.30. There is a 5.30 bus to Rethymno from Chania, and also at the same time one from Heraklio t...

Suggest you email post@bus-service-crete-ktel.com and ask if the 5.30am from Chania to Rethymno/Heraklion travels via Souda (more than likely I should think, to pick up ferry passengers) and what time approx you can pick it up. The bus stop is more or less opposite the top of the plateia, on the lan...

Joe Green I know all about, but Task Manager? Being a self-confessed technological illiterate, I have reached my present great age without ever having heard of Task Manager yet alone used it.

I am sorry if I got the wrong end of the stick. But if you are buying a house in Karpathos, the point I made about your needing a local politikos mixanikos (surveyor) still applies. Only a local mixanikos will have the knowledge of local boundaries, geology, planning situation etc. A glance at the l...

I also find your post rather odd. I can’t believe that things are done differently in Karpathos from the way they are done here, nor that you can’t see why your question (like the one you asked about lawyers) cannnot be answered helpfully. If you have a house in Karpathos you presumably used a Karpa...

Just now in Crete...by unspoken agreement everybody cut the hay last weekend, so every hillside has its little field-square of flattened pale gold stubble. The broom bushes which line every highway are cascading fountains of yellow, alternating with the pink of the oleanders. The city squares are ca...

You seem to struggle with English. What is your native language? Couldn’t you have tried to elicit that information without making the question sound offensive? I can think of a number of people not a million miles from the expat community here whose native language is English, but who struggle wit...

Maintaining Power Supply?

Not technically a computer question but a techie one, so am posting here rather than boring people on the main forum! Is there any appreciable difference in the operating principles of the UPS which I use to protect my computer and which comes into operation in the event of a power cut, and the emer...
