  1. μακαρονια = pasta (not spaghetti). Nice try though Greeks (as usual) seem to think that the word "melomakarono" has an ancient root (μακαρωνία/μακαρία which apparently was some kind of bread given to people after someone's funeral). In any case, this doesn't seem like a probable root for the word μελομακαρονα to me. It's much more likely that the melomakarona evolved from the "macarons" (French desserts - macaroons in English). It's possible that at some point in time someone in Greece (or Asia Minor, as it's possible that the melomakarona came to mainland Greece with the Greeks from Asia Minor) took those "macarons" and soaked them in honey, hence "melo-makarona".

    Greeks in Albania

    Greeks have lived in what is today Albania for centuries. This is not something new. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greeks_in_Albania

    Eyoismos let us know if you are OK

    I tried to contact him via email a couple of years ago but he never responded. I hope he's ok. In the meantime, we're also missing ajaxmonkey too. He's also gone MIA lately.

    Tick Tock - its time!

    I think you answered your own question. It's 3:26am and you're still up and trying to squeeze in one more thing in your day (write a post in this forum) I grew up in a simpler time when our definition of time was quite different. We basically went to school in the morning and then we'd come home in the afternoon and play outside until the sun went down (and oftentimes we kept playing until after the sun went down too...). When I was young the days seemed long, the school year seemed to last forever , but so did the summer break too! Seems to me that the older I get, the faster time seems to go. And don't get me wrong, I'm in no rush to get to the finish line . It just feels that time goes really fast as you grow older. I started realizing this when I was in my early 30s, married with 2 young kids, and it felt as if 24hrs were not enough to accomplish all I needed to do in a day. But then, as I was getting closer to my 40s I realized that I had to change my ways. I had to slow down the pace a bit and enjoy life. It was not easy, but I made some decisions which did change my life and the life of my family. As a start, I decided that no matter what I want to spend a minimum of one month in Greece every summer. This seemed impossible to do at the time, not only because it was difficult to do financially (a trip to Greece every summer for 4 people for a full month would cost us around $20,000), but it was mostly a problem making arrangements with my job at the time to take so much time off at once. As a result, I decided to change my work habits and pick my jobs based on my new requirement. It took me a couple of years to make some lifestyle (and work) adjustments to accommodate all this, but I eventually managed to make this happen. I've been visiting Greece every summer, with my whole family, for the past 10 years for 4-6 weeks long vacations. It was not easy, but it was not that hard to do either. It just took some planning and some determination on my part to change my life. In addition to this, I made several other small lifestyle changes like spending 10-15 minutes every day to slow down and enjoy my coffee (instead of having one on the run). At the end of the day it's our life, and it should be our decision how we'll live it. It's not a rat race. I understand that sometimes we're put into situations where we need to do this, and then this, and then that...work longer hours to make more money so that you can pay the rent or the mortgage or your car payment or whatever else. But what if we would stop for a minute, and think what do we really need? What's more important to us? And then prioritize, and make choices and decisions based on what really matters. It's not easy, but it's not that hard either to make life-changing decisions. It's just a matter of wanting to do it. Your life is yours to live, and your (short...) time on this earth is yours to enjoy.

    Hello :)

    Hey, welcome back. We need you guys posting more often. Dino and I do write some posts in the forum from time to time but we're more active in Hellenism's Facebook account. Eyo is MIA since a couple of years ago. No idea what happened to him.
  6. This is really bullshit, especially when dealing with someone who doesn't feel that whatever he did was wrong. This guy should rot in jail. It's really upsetting reading this news.

    Greek Wildfires 2018

    Just back from Greece. In fact, I was at a beach close by to Mati when the fire happened (I was in Vouliagmeni). The loss of life is just shocking.

    Να γιατί δεν πάμε καλά

    Για εμας που ζουμε στο εξωτερικο ειναι δυσκολο να καταλαβουμε τις τρελες χρεωσεις της ΔΕΗ σε αυτους τους λογαριασμους. Φετος το καλοκαιρι ημουν στην Ελλαδα και κοιταζα το λογαριασμο ενος φιλου απο ενα διαμερισμα το οποιο ειναι κλειστο (δεν νοικιαζεται και δε ζει κανενας εκει) για το οποιο επρεπε να πληρωσει γυρω στα 200 Ευρω στη ΔΕΗ, ολα αχετα με καταναλωση ρευματος.
  10. This is all bullshit. The reality is this: Skopjie did get what they wanted in terms of the name (North Macedonia). This may open a can of warms in the future if (most likely when...) a more conservative/nationalistic prime minister comes into power again in FYROM. If there's a North Macedonia then surely there's a South Macedonia which should be seceded from Greece and join their "North" Macedonia brethren. People of North Macedonia are not going to be called North Macedonians (as they should). Instead, for some strange reason, they'll be just called Macedonians. I guess the next question is, what's going to happen to the Greek Macedonians living in the region of Macedonia (Greece). What are they going to be called? On top of this, there is a number of Greek products in the market for decades using the "Macedonia" name (Macedonian wines, various Macedonian good etc.) all produced in the Macedonia region of Greece. What's going to happen to all these products and companies now if the term "Macedonian" can only refer to people or products of FYROM? Expect this to become a major issue soon. There's much more than this, of course, this is just the surface. I can safely bet that this whole thing is going to come back and bite us Greeks in the ass very soon. Tsipras and his cronies will be long gone by then of course, but the damage they inflicted in the Greek psyche is unimaginable.
  11. What's shocking is that 16.5 percent of the respondents of this poll are still planning to vote for Syriza. The stupidity of some people is beyond belief.
  12. What happened today should be a political suicide for Tsipras. It's really beyond comprehension why he personally pushed for this agreement to move forward so quickly knowing full well that the majority of Greeks do not agree with this. There must be more in play here, other than pressure from the EU and US. Also, it's sad that this dispute was resolved so quickly - and not to our benefit or advantage - while the issue in Cyprus is ongoing for decades and nobody has shown any real interest to push Turkey to resolve it. I guess Greece is easy to push around (especially the Tsipras government as it seems...). I'm pretty certain that what happened today will bite us in the ass one day. There have been countless useless politicians who have hurt Greece one way or the other over the years, but Tsipras and his government have done more damage in the few years they're in power than all other useless politician put together in decades. I can't blame the Greek people for falling for this crook as I fell for Syriza too hoping that they'd really do things differently and bring real change. We didn't expect that Tsipras and his crew would end up being so incompetent.
  13. The reality is that at this point in time Greece has nothing to gain from this agreement. Absolutely nothing. FYROM however, stands to gain a lot (including a possible inclusion in the EU etc.). The timing of all this is strange too. Greece is dealing with other more pressing issues, including the relations with Turkey, internal strife, unemployment etc. etc. One wonders then, why the SYRIZA government decided to make this a priority in their agenda these days? More so when they have really nothing to gain from this politically. This will, in fact, do more damage to them than good as this is a very sensitive issue for most Greeks, SYRIZA supporters included.

    Monastiraki is a cesspool

    Are you in Greece? Monastiraki is a hub, so everybody hangs out there after they come out of the train etc. I don't think it's that bad. In fact, if you walk behind the train station you'll find a cool gelato place (I think it's called DaVinci). They make the best gelato in Athens. You have to try it.
