But we must think also of our relatives and friends in Greece where the count of newly homeless and hungry in Athens is growing daily. Heating oil is now priced too high for many and electric bills will go up as much as 20 percent. Doctors Without Borders is reporting rising cases of TB, Aids and malaria. Things are rough, and will get worse before they get better. Help if you can by staying in touch with Greece and sending what you can when you can.
And, yes, my nephew Alex Xanttopoulos got married tonite to Elina Sorbi in Fairfax, VA -- a Persian-themed ceremony which followed last night's Greek soiree at the nearby Greek Taverna in McLean. Unfortunately, my parents Angeline and Steve did not live to see the day, but Yiayias Sorbi and Hage kept the fires burning. The party is still going on downstairs, but I know my limitations...
