Re: Manfredi

Actually, the cry "alalai" would have been cut distinctly short.. also called a "zag'areet" or "za'eet", it requires pushing the sound from the throat while vibrating the throat muscles- try *that* while being pierced by an arrow! It would sound more like "alal-uh&...

Re: The tomb

Greetings, The body of ATG had become a symbol of power, so his final wishes were not granted. It is interesting that folklore held that if the time came when a king was not buried in Makedon, the kingdom would fall.

Re: HBO

Greetings- my feelings here are that the artificial muscularity of todays steroid wonders is also not appropriate.. there *are* men around who have incredible physical strength without looking like they walked out of a bull pen.

Re: Those in Greece..

Greetings All, we am working hard to get this ready.. be patient- I have an antiquated system- I have to use someone else's computer to even respond to the Forum. I believe the article will be interesting- it covers a lot of ground and goes over current theories, some well-known, others not. And yes...

Re: Those in Greece..

Greetings Marcus, "Get a move on"?? If you saw what this has become, you would be graoning. Now it is a matter of making it a reasonable size for Pothos. And of course, getting the photos/sketches of the modern breeds. "Marcus Varius, where are my breed photos?" sounded the cry, ...

Re: Those in Greece..

Greetings and thank you, Yiannis. Unfortunately, I am working on an antiquated system so all I get is numerals and gibberish instead of Greek- when I manage to get anything at all According to Prof. Menagatos (Agricultural U of Athens) there are 8 breeds: Pindos, Skyros, Pineian, Andravidas, Messara...
