Re: Mosquitos

An item in Avon's Skin So Soft range - I think it's dry body spray - is reputedly good for keeping mozzies at bay.

Eleni, I am intrigued as to what do do with the cucumber peel. Do you leave it around and it scares the cockroaches away, do you grind it up and feed it to the cockroaches and it kills them? Or what?

Re: Artists's Modelling Clay

If you go to the Handicraft Village near the Souda interchange there is/was a potter there who may sell you some clay or tell you where you can buy some.
I haven't been to the Village for a long time so I can't guarantee that he is still there.

Re: If somebody found a bunch of keys where would they take them?

I have seen keys tied to a tree presumably next to where they were dropped.

Re: One Drive on not-so-smart Samsung phone

I had the same problem and couldn't find OneDrive in the list of applications.

The solution I found was to go to Play Store and search for One Drive and then press UPDATE. That stopped the message.

Re: Organ donation in Greece

Last autumn my wife had surgery here and blood donation wasn't even mentioned. Perhaps in Chania now they know it's pointless asking Brits to find donors? Bob. I had 2 operations at Hania Hospital this summer & blood donation wasn't mentioned. Maybe it depends on the operation and whether extra...

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

Warwick, I think you have the wrong book there, The one about the man obsessed with Icarus was called something like 'Flying with Icarus'. I agree with those who say it was not very good, I disagree with you about the purpose of the book. Having met the author I believe the purpose of the book was f...
