                Not many replies for Kalives, but in Chania many knife sharpeners. behind the row of tavernas at the port.
                I took my chief knives 10 in all, he made them like new,could cut a finger off. 1 euro each. That was last year, still going strong.

                As you leave the port towards where the Liki is, on the right up a stairway, there are two knife suppliers and grinders, Problems parking , but he is good.

                    I second PeeBee advice, avoid this agent please, even on 400 Euro a month thats nearly 10K you would pay up front. The agent does a runner with your cash, no house to rent then try to find him and take him to court,,,,,,no chance…..

                    I can give you lots of agents who charge one month rent as a fee and two MONTHS rent in advance.

                            There is a new program available to all non working people who are as we say on the `bread line`

                            Married people with less than 10,000 p.a.  with one child 11,000 can get free food from the Dimos.

                            This is available to sgn up for only tilll the end of this month and if you sign up the free food continues for 4 months.

                            This is part of an EU initiative, Mayor Funds and the Dimos.

                            I have more details if needed.

                                                Thanks for that MCD, but is this a permanent residence card or just a residence card you will be issued with?

                                                There is a difference that IKA and OEDD need.

                                                Mine is the yellow card.

                                                As posted before I have to wait 4 1/2 yrs till I can prove 5 yrs here in Greece.

                                                        New regulations this year…

                                                        http://www.dsanet.gr/Epikairothta/Nomothesia/pd106_07.htm

                                                        Good luck,  my green card lapsed and the Police in Chania refused me a permanent resident permit because I could not prove I had been here over 5 yrs, even though my IKA book showed 10 yrs of treatment here in Crete.

                                                        Good luck but keep your fingers crossed.

                                                        Let us all know please.

                                                                                    Any car accessory shop will sell the proper all weather covers.
