The hate, squabbling and social arrest hovering over Athens is like ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano bringing everything else to a standstill.

As for those who are not interested in their own country's economy, let alone that of Greece, I humbly apologise. It's just very hard for me to talk about picnics, what I had for breakfast, my latest hair cut, how I'd like a weekend on Myconos at a time when there is rioting every day and such disarray in this beautiful country. But Mother's Day is coming up and I promise to take the focus back to the usual soon...whatever that is, of course. Still haven't figured out what this BLOG is really about...or what it wants to be when it grows up. (All suggestions are welcome).
Also, Robin, I haven't forgotten you...I WILL get round to your award soon.
