So when is the Pride Parade in Gaza then?

As the great twitter commentator @BurnsidenotTosh recently noted, it has been announced that 15th March 2025 will be official “not pride day” with pride month resuming on 16th for the next 23 years. In that vein I bring you a tweet from Brighton where it is Pride Month, thirteen months a year.

Photo article from the Greek Hovel - modern loos arrive!

Maybe it is just a coincidence but since it was flagged up that two of the three old eco-loos were being replaced with modern flushing toilets, we have been inundated with bookings for ther Greek Hovel. There is now just one week free before October 9 when the pool will still be very swimmable. I am minded to extend the pool season such is the demand now that our loos have moved into the 21st century. You can see more details olf the eco place HERE and one of the two new loos is below.

Photo evidence of life in the old dog/grandpa yet - the 2 Greek Hovel castles climbed in one day

I should say that, the other day, an old man in the square in Kambos looked at my daughter Jaya and then congratulated me on how beautiful my grand-daughter was. That is the first time someone has actually said that I was her grandpa although I am sure some others have thought it. Our mad lefty friends L&G, when they stopped laughing, explained how Jaya was actually my daughter and the old chap looked rather impressed. And here is the proof that the old dog (me) has life in him yet.

Somebody had the cheek to ask if I will record videos of ShareStock. Er, no!

Before you slam Jeremy Corbyn on Ukraine – what is your plan?

Today’s Emmanuel Goldstein in the two minute hate on social media, in the MSM and at Westminster is, not for the first time, Jeremy Corbyn. His “crime” is suggesting that the UK should not be sending any more weapons and cash to Ukraine. Before you condemn the Marxist old loon what is your alternative?

Photo Article from the Greek Hovel: An Englishman abroad

I apologise to my son, as Joshua insists vehemently that he is Welsh not English. And I do not want you think that I am bringing up up to be another Rees Mogg. The hat is not his normal head gear it is mine. But he looks pretty damn handsome does he not? Before you say it: he takes after his mother.

FACTS you cannot say about the Euro Women’s 2022 and the Lionesses

The other day I served up a detailed podcast on some of the lies that the political and media classes try to get us to swallow. The flip slide of this Orwellian nightmare are the t6hings that you cannot say without risking being branded some sort of “ist” and potentially silenced.  I got an email today from UEFA.

Fancy a last minute Greek getaway – three weeks in August and September left

The Mrs and I have worked hard this summer on upgrading the our luxury Greek mountain retreat with pool but a late cancellation means that it is still free to rent for three weeks between now and the end of the swimming pool season. Full pictures and booking via AirBnB can be found HERE but as a reader of this website if you want to book contact me direct and we can cut out the middleman.

Tom Winnifrith postcard - are you really happy being lied to?

Monkey Pox, covid, Ukraine, Russia, Iraq, university entrance by race and class, tax cuts. You are being lied to and nobody seems to care. I do.

Photo Article: Greek Hovel summer 2022 Old Kardamili

The Mrs decided that we should take our guests (Joshua’s pal T and her parents) to Kardamili. As you may recall I hate Kardamili with a passion. At this time of year there are far too many ghastly Islingtonians packing its streets, browsing its shops selling hugely overpriced clothes, jewellery and other items which are about as authentically Greek as a Big Mac and fries. The restaurants serve nice food but at London prices. It is Islington on the Med. I loathe it. Its only redeeming feature is the one sandy beach, which is out of town by Paddy Leigh Fermor’s old house, which having no toilet or bar is relatively deserted and quiet.

Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - repairing snake hill at last

Don’t get me wrong but this is a glorious day. The Mrs, the kids, Joshual’s pal T and her parents who are visiting us have all been packed off to the seaside. It is expensive and crowded so they are welcome to it and, better still, they cannot get back until late tonight. So I have a day of solitude, of writing  and of swimming and it is heavenly. It is what this place was built for!

Greek Hovel Summer 2022 Photo Article: The Kardamili war memorial

My late father wrote a learned article on this monument using another photo by his son. It is an interesting war memorial, erected after the two Balkan wars of 1912 and 1913. Not a lot of perople are aware of how much of what is Northern Greece today was still, in 1911, in Turkish hands. That ended after the first Balkan War. In the second war, Bulgaria – which had been part of the 1912 alliance against the Turks – declared war on its ertswhile allies, Greece and Serbia, and lost territory as a result. Modern Greece is very largely a result of those wars.

You think the 2022 two day heatwave was bad and worse is to come – so when did global warming start?

The Met Office and the BBC and the rest of the liberal intelligentsia really are creaming themselves over the two day heatwave back in Airstrip One. Okay there were not quite 10,000 excess deaths in fact there were sod all excess deaths but that was probably down to mask wearing and the mass rollout of untested vaccines. So when did global warming start in the UK?
