Its just another day, but its a fun way to change the numbers. This morning, we followed the Greek tradition, Kalo Podariko - The youngest, who is 'the purest' must be the first to enter the house, 'Right foot first' - As must everyone else who follows, thus 'Getting the year off on the right foot' on the first day of the year ...

The only thing missing, is the Vasilopita cake, and the traditional new year bread.  Who knows maybe next year.

SWMBO finished 2016 as she did in 2015. Rather unwell. and in bed. At least its a virus this year, whereas last year it was due to the Chemotherapy.

Well I tried to think of some thing different, and profound to say, besides 'Happy New Year' and all I can come up with is '2016 is so last year' just like the 'Skiathian Limoncello' ...

Yammas !!!
Ευτυχισμενο το νεο έτος! Happy New Year wherever you are, and thank you for visiting. Keep warm wherever you are ...

PS: How do you move the clocks forward, that one extra second ?


  1. Kronia polla with good health for all the family

    1. Thank you, and good wishes to you too ...

  2. Sorry, Ian, it's no good asking how to move the clocks forward by a second - you're too late - I did mine at midnight. :-)

    1. Bravo, But I was watching Jools Holland ...

  3. And by the way, it was ADD a second, so the clocks went BACK a second, not forward. :-) :-)

    1. Enlightened - Thank you, But as Mr Howard, my Maths teacher would say, (and I still remember) "How can you add, if you are subtracting" ...

    2. MY maths teacher said "I can't believe you passed that GCE O Level exam". I had to agree with her at the time too!
