        Sounds like the same Grigoris who installed our gas oven and told jokes!

            I suspect the clue is in "sky plus hd box". However, it would still be nice to know the actual make and model number from the label.

                Living in eastern Crete. 1.8 dish. Nearly all channels have returned, sports, news etc.

                Kephalian, can you confirm that includes all BBC, ITV, CH4 and five programmes?

                    With some companies in the UK, the SIM card will expire if not used at least every 6 months. I assume it’s the same in Greece. It would therefore seem sensible to leave the phone in Greece so someone can make a call periodically to keep the SIM active.

                        The link to his web site doesn’t work so I suspect the answer is "no".

                            It’s different because it’s for motorbikes and scooters for which there are different rules. I don’t know anything about the tax on ducks.

                                        Could you please list the UK locations that you’ll be visiting, as you book them?

                                        I might have a pickup but it could be Telford or Crewe or other location.

                                            If you mean "pray do copy the email here" I’m not going to do that – copyright reasons – and, as I don’t own a rental property and couldn’t understand most of the text, I’m not going to attempt to explain it. It looked quite complicated. That’s why I suggested contacting him direct.

                                                Yes, George Atsalakis sent out an email explaining. If he is your accountant, contact him and he’ll explain.

                                                            I doubt you’ll see any change out of 200 Euros. The sooner the better and you’ll probably need to borrow a trap.

                                                                            The word for snow is "Xioni" (Xee on ee)*.

                                                                                Actually, I think we’ll just carry on letting it and living on the income.
