No, I'm not being lazy (well not much anyway) but I'm still deeply involved in getting the Kindle edition of “A Glimpse of Heaven” ready. It's nearly completed but I'm still looking for a few more illustrations and a few friends are proof reading.

In searching for good photographs to use, I came across several excellent websites and blogs which I would like to share with you, not all Orthodox but all worth a look. Although I didn't use photos from all the sites, I would like to thank all the owners for the kind permission they gave.

Aristotle Koskinas is an archaeologist and tour guide based in Athens. His site is a goldmine of interesting articles about Greek history and culture. The site is in English and Greek: and
Mystagogy, the wide-ranging Orthodox website of John Saidopoulos is packed with interesting and thought-provoking articles:
Anastasia Marou's blog covers all sorts of interesting topics related to Greece:
Elizabeth Kaeton is an American Episcopelian who runs a lively, often quirky and sometimes controversial website:

Promise I’ll get the blogs up and running again in the new year, maybe!

A very happy St. Nicholas Day to everybody and Χρόνια Πολλά  from Greece to all Nicholas's and Nikoletta's, not forgetting my granddaughter Nicole.
