It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a rather dreary Wednesday morning here in otherwise beautiful Corfu Greece. The weather sucks and one of my favorite places in Corfu is about to shut down for the winter….

Starbucks is closing for the winter on Sunday….

I was never a big fan of Starbucks when I lived in the states. There are just far too many other options and since I’m not much of a coffee drinker hanging out at Starbucks just didn’t make sense…

Pizza Hut and me are a different issue. Back home I would probably not order a pie from there because quite frankly the pies don’t taste that good and there are a plethora of other options available….

McDonalds tastes the same wherever you go and fortunately for me they have a store in Corfu….and it’s open all year long. I prefer In and Out and would rarely if ever cruise into a Mickey D’s…..

Living away from America as long as I have tends to make one start to change their tune so to speak….

Speaking of changing ones tune I’m starting to rethink the entire Tim Tebow sucks campaign and starting to become a believer. I still don’t think he can hit the broadside of a barn but he does know how to win and winning is all that matters in professional sports.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in America…..everywhere else is just another work day.

I think tomorrow I will order a XL Meat Lovers Pizza with extra cheese, drink a Lipton iced tea from Starbucks with a couple XL orders of fries from McDonalds while watching a replay of the Jets getting “Tebowed”……

Have a great Wednesday everyone!


It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a crisp Wednesday morning in beautiful Corfu Greece. I’m sitting in my usual spot at the most beautiful Starbucks in the world staring out at the Ionian Sea sipping on Lipton iced tea.

It doesn’t get any better than that my friends.

For those of us living in Greece today marks the beginning of a 48 hour National Strike which means there will be a LOT of yelling and screaming, maybe a riot or two and possibly a couple of businesses burned.

And what will all of this ruckus accomplish? Continue reading

Starbucks in Corfu Greece

It’s a beautiful Wednesday morning in Corfu Greece and I have the privilege to be able to be sitting in the most beautiful Starbucks in the world. If you ever get the opportunity to come to Corfu I must insist you stop here and check out this view. You won’t find another Starbucks like this anywhere in the world!!

I’ve been in Greece for nine years and in another month or so it will be nine years here on the beautiful island of Corfu. It seems like yesterday the phone rang and the voice on the other end said;

“Hey Flash, you’ve got to help me. My pro in Mykonos broke her leg yesterday and I need someone fast….for eight weeks or so. Do you know anyone?”

My reply….

“Send me a ticket and I’ll come”……followed by “where is Mykonos”? Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s another Wednesday here in beautiful Corfu Greece. The black clouds are rolling in and it’s going to be raining cats and dogs in the next couple of hours. As far as I’m concerned it can go ahead and rain all it likes. I really don’t care and even if there was something I could do about it (stopping the rain) I would probably focus on something else.

The Internet is down again…..arghhhhhh!!!! Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a rainy Wednesday morning here in beautiful Corfu Greece. This has certainly been the wettest winter in the nine years I’ve been here. Wet weather is not good when your occupation is done predominately outdoors. Not good at all.

This rubbish weather has actually been a blessing in disguise as it has allowed me to explain to someone how much better being somewhere else would be….. Continue reading
