Please forgive me, but I must correct you on one little thing; the original Parthenon sits atop the Acropolis, in Athens, Greece.!
I stand corrected and I do appreciate it. I've always thought that it resembled the Roman architecture so much and just figured.......oh well. The older I get the less I like to travel, whether it be driving or flying. The Belle and I did vacation in Jamaica twice some 18 years ago. But your decription of that area does sound inviting. BTW, has Greece gotten out of its financial and political upheaval yet? They rather upset the international bankers!

You know, MM, oddly enough there hasn't been much reported about Greece, lately. I'm sure they're still having problems and, as a matter of fact, when we were there, and as our tour bus wound through the streets of Athens, you could see black smudges, here and there, from where angry mobs threw Molotov cocktails, during the demonstrations. The day before we docked, the Captain of our ship came on the intercom and said that, due to a pilot's strike, we may not be able to dock there, and might have to substitute the island of Cyprus instead. One of the main reasons I chose this cruse was so that I could see the Parthenon, and some of the other ruins there, and you can imagine how distraught I was! Luckily, at the last minute, and I'm certain it was all about money, for cruise ships bring incredible revenue everywhere they stop, they "temporarily" suspended the strike, and a pilot was brought onboard to bring us to the dock at Piraeus, which is Athens' port of entry. You can imagine how happy I was! When I was very young, I read a lot of Greek literature, because of all the adventure, and always dreamed of someday being able to visit there, and see the sites. I would have done cartwheels, if I hadn't feared hurting myself! Up to that point, it had been a wonderful cruise, and we stopped on Sicily and hired a car to take us to Taormina where, standing on one of the piazzas overlooking the Mediterranean, we had a great view of Mt. Etna, still the largest active volcano in the world, I think. Then, it was on to Crete, and the ruins of the Palace of Knossos, home of the Minos line of kings (there really wasn't a Labyrinth, or a Minotaur), then to Ephesus, Turkey, where the ruins were still in pretty good shape, here and there, and you could still sit in the very back, of the Amphitheater, and hear a normal conversation between two people standing where the stage area used to be. Also, we visited the last home of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and that was beyond words. Athens was our last stop and, thanks to our being able to dock, was the cherry on top of the sundae! I really wish you all could go on that cruise, and I know you would love it. The cost of the cruise itself is not bad; it's the air fare to and from Rome, where the cruise began and terminated, that is the big cost of the whole thing. We also spent the three days prior to sailing in Rome, and my wife booked our hotel rooms in the Old City, where we were within walking distance of most of the sites. We learned a hard lesson, the year before when we took our daughter and her husband on a Western Caribbean cruise, that it's best to do your sightseeing before you go on the cruise, because you're tired at the end. Anyway, you have a wonderful day, my friend!!!

It's odd, but I haven't heard anything on the news, lately, about Greece's financial woes. I do know that, when we were there, you could see black smudges, here and there, from Molotov cocktails that were thrown during the demonstrations. I know there still must be problems, but maybe Europe sent them some money, or something. That's what happens when you try to turn a whole country into a "worker's paradise." Still, it you and The Belle should ever get a chance to go there, please go! You will never regret it. Our cruise started in Rome, and then made stops in Sicily, Crete, Turkey, and Greece, and it was a dream come true, for anyone who ever read Greek literature, and mythology. Have a wonderful day, my friend!

The trips sound wonderful! We've not been to Greece but it sounds like quite an adventure. We did enjoy Germany, France, 30 minutes of Italian highway -- crazy drivers, Austria, Switzerland and little Principality of Lichtenstein. We have been to Nashville several times and have seen a lot of things there but there's a lot we haven't seen there., mostly Nashville is a city we drive through to other southern destinations. I do not enjoy I65. A person has to really pay attention to drive that busy road. Now the western part of I80.. Well, just put your automatic pilot on and set back and nap ( not really.. Lol)
The holiday traffic this past week was a real bear to be in, especially with all the road construction. A minivan pulling a small trailer -directly in front of me, lost control leaving crazy skid marks in both traffic lanes and ended up in the median headed the wrong direction. He discovered the importance of having brakes on those trailers !! So did I. Hmmmm, see, I can learn from others mistakes.. Better Half, did you read this? Lol

Anne,

As someone whom drives I-65 a lot, I am in total agreement with you. From here I have to go to Lexington and pick up the Blue Grass Parkway. I have, long ago, driven completely across the Parkway without seeing another vehicle. It's busier now but not nearly like I-65. When you hit the Southbound lanes it's like All Hell Broke Loose. Always a wreck, most often KSP is out in force as is TSP. We used to live in Huntsville, AL (5 different times) and Nashville became our second home. I know every bar, restaurant, club and dive and there are lot's of all of those. It is a fun city and I had the largest concentration of clients there than anywhere in the SE USA. Dollar General HQ, Tractor Supply HQ, Cracker Barrel HQ (out in Lebanon) Lifeway Christian HQ, United Methodist Publishing House HQ and even Brach's Confections over in Chattanooga. I never failed to leave there without a backseat full of every candy you know they make. I had all of those as clients for 20+ years and got to be their sole source for Computer Equipment like servers/storage/Network Switches and you name it. HP, IBM, Cisco, EMC, etc., They were not too happy about me retiring in May but, 35 years is a long career in that business. I still have to help Dollar General, I built their huge datacenter and know where all the cables are under the floor,,,:-)

Great memories, except for I-65!

Lol. I live within minutes of I65 and sometimes at night I hear the traffic . Aggravating. I took a short stroll under the moon and down the drive past the pond just a few minutes ago and all I heard were the bullfrogs so its a good night!
Huntsville, huh? My sister retired from teaching there. The guy that jogged past their house every morning noticed their for sale sign and ended up buying the house. She now lives in a small town in West Virginia that's famous for Mothman. That's a strange story!
We moved to the same city 3 times , not your 5 times to Huntsville though, lol. At last count we've lived in 19 places. 5 different states --both ends of the Mississippi River and both sides of the Ohio River, plus wyoming. Needless to say, I know how to pack and move and I don't want to do that again, period.

Sam,

I run a Chrome browser with "Ad-Aware" extension enabled so I never see a single ad. It's great and it's all free. Give it a shot, great stuff. I got so tired of M$FT and IE.

Guys please stop saying this is a sign the end is near. We have been having these signs for years stop acting like its something new. There is a reasonable excuse both biblical and scientific because they both are one. Science doesn't disprove the bible it backs it up. Every time someone poops sideways there are people crying end of times. Stupid people these days. Smh

most all followers of the bible, do agree that this earth age is close to winding down.the first age had a set time limit ,this second age we are in has a set time limit.the 3th earth has a set time of 1000 yrs.when you can tell the age is coming close is when ever thing in that age is almost finished.Christ give examples of the last days happenings.in this earth age he said no one knew the day or hour.but the season.is easy figured out.he said when you see the things written come passed you know the time is near.he gave a good sample of the planting of the fig tree the fig tree was Israel becoming a nation again.that happened in 1948 he said this generation would not pass until all other things were fulfilled .now one thing is for sure it was not the 40 yr generation he spoke of.but it you read and follow closely he gave a good example when he said ever man should live 3 score plus 10 no we know a score is 20 yrs.so 3 score plus 10 that's 70 yrs.i think that's the generation he spoke of.so if this is the one then its up in 2018.the one other spoken of in the old bible was 120 yrs.the reason i think it could be the 70 yrs its the one Christ spoke of.if it was the 120 yr generation then in 2068 would be the time.so its got 4 yrs ,or 54 yrs. one.
