They all seem to work on a Sky HD box. Showing various test transmissions at the moment. Any idea if it is possible to get the other original streams on a Sky HD box. When I tried after BBC News vanished they didn't work properly. Is there a similar set of parameters that will get them back? Warwic...

Bob There is an agency running the post office in Vamos now. They are located in the office under the taverna next to the car park. We popped into the agency in Vamos to get, possibly the most basic of all things from a post office, some stamps. We were allowed to have just five... for any more &qu...

Re: The Tingle Factor

Just now I'm listening to Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis. Now I don't actually believe in heaven, but if any one piece of music could be described as celestial this is it. Thanks, Mike. It is a long time since I listened to this and it is certainly very special. Mozart's Cor...

I said that it was obviously in the wrong place because, although it is indeed in a busy tourist area, few British people stay there and, according to the owner, the German and Scandinavian tourists are very wary of Indian food.

Indian Restaurant

Driving back home from Heraklion airport we took the old national road into Rethymno and stopped off for lunch at a small, but really good, Indian restaurant in Platanes. It is so obviously in the wrong place and I just wish it was closer to where we live in the Apokoronas. Nevertheless we had a gre...

Just now in August... we have a pair of rats living under the roof tiles. I trimmed back the branches of the olive tree which they had been using for access to the roof. Picture the scene as they come out from their days siesta, running at full pelt across the roof and screeching to a halt when they...

I should add that the Glass Factory is good (and not cheap)for decorative and feature lighting indoors. For outdoor and more modern lighting there are a couple of shops in Kalives on the road out to the Highway.
