Other news: I have been told that the Ministery of the Environment is to make funds available for a scheme to help get rid of the Palm Weivel. Anyone interested in being paid to train their dog to sniff out the Weivel, please contact me. Experienced dog trainers are to be sent from Athens. They will give a free training course to those who are interested. So, if you have a dog which you think is suitable, and would like to become a Weivel sniffer outer - give me a call.

David and I enjoyed the company of the Mayor of Gouves, Mr Yiorgos Nikolakakis, at the launch of Mr Lou Duro's poetry book, which has been translated into Greek. It is available from the offices of the Khronicles newspaper and at various bookshops throughout Crete. David (hidden talent) was asked to read a couple of verses in English, and he did very well. I got into conversation about religious dogma, with a young priest, Papa Dimitri, of Gouves. I also managed a few words with the Mayor. So, between religion and politics, poetry and music (of the wandering minstrel type) we had a thouroughly enjoyable evening. The venue was a delightful little restaurant, with open fire, called 'Katafigio', on the road to Anopolis from Kokini Hani. It is the first time that we have been there, but I am sure it won't be the last.
