Re: How to Watch UK TV Abroad

For the past few days access to the BBC iplayer via expressvpn has been very unsatisfactory. The company say that they're aware of the problem and their engineers are working on it. (I have this vision of a kind of battle of the engineering brains, with the Beeb's boffins forever trying to build vir...

Yannis: The Return

Varoufakis today launched his new Greek political party with a view to fighting elections next year. Perhaps someone better than me at economics could have a look at the Greek New Deal link in the following, and let us know if his programme is a) a Good Thing and b) achievable? I hope the manifesto ...

Re: New Animal Welfare Law

This may have been one version of the original story, although obviously not from Kathimerini. It's the one I forwarded to an animal rescuer friend, anyway.

Re: Sands Across the Sea

Coming up my outside staircase this evening I realised it was a funny ginger colour, and that I'd completely forgotten to clean that bit when swabbing down the balcony yesterday. So being a virtuous Cretan housewife I immediately got out the mop bucket, lack of daylight notwithstanding. Had just fin...

Sands Across the Sea

Three in the afternoon and I've switched the lights on. Cars coming through the village have their headlights on too. I can see just about to the end of the street but beyond that it's just an eerie, brassy-tinged white murk. The schoolchildren weren't allowed out to play, and this evening's planned...

Re: Being pestered by 13888

I've twice had occasion to call 13888 in the last couple of days and found them friendly, helpful and quick to answer my call. That has always been my previous experience too. I don't know, but would imagine, that the cold calls are handled by OTE's sales department and are therefore not in the remi...

Re: Help. Shotguns not allowed.

Aaaargh!! Daisy I have now stopped coveting your beautiful garden after hearing what lurked and may still be lurking in the ground cover. I see from the internet that what you have is a "leopard snake (scient. Elaphe situla or Zamenis situla) ... the most beautiful species of snake in Greece, w...

Piraeus Bank

I learned today that Piraeus Bank are about to close a number of smaller branches, including the one in Spili, Rethymno, which has a huge catchment area, and which will cease trading from the beginning of next month. (Other members might think it a good idea to make enquiries about their own branche...
