Sarah Jessica Loves Greece :-)

On the red -oops, blue carpet the stars were in a good spirit and talked to the media about their second Sex and the City and the possibilities of completing a trilogy.
The story in this second film doesn’t lack in the fashion department, but certainly involves more traveling. Greek-American, Patricia Field is to thank for dressing the women in runway styles . “Carrie’s filled her ginormous closet and is living the life with Big, Samantha is taking more pills than an octogenarian, Miranda seems to have found the balance between mom and professional woman, and Charlotte — shocker — is crumbling under the pressure of being mother to two children. Then a little sparkle comes in, shaped in the form of a flirty Penelope Cruz, Stanford wears white to his wedding where Liza Minelli performs, and the girls jump at the chance for an all-expenses-paid trip to Abu Dhabi, where Carrie seems to relive the events of Season Three.” Sex and the City 2 was filmed partially in Morocco, a country that attracts new movie productions and is considered a film paradise with the fiscal incentives it provides filmmakers. Greece has been trying to do the same and attract more films to the country.

Talking to Greek MTV, Sarah Jessica Parker stated “I would love to make “Sex And the City 3″ in Greece and especially in Mykonos”. She added that she would like to work out the logistics with the Greek authorities. With every given chance Parker who visits often the Aegean says that she is in love with the country and ready to buy a house there.

 Check out the table below for this year's contestants (including at semi-final level - some of these have already been voted out of the competition), and download the spreadsheet to see the UK's finishing position in all Eurovisions since it started in 1956 - and the full list of all winners ever, with ISO country codes.

Table for this year's Contestants

The final of the Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Oslo on Saturday night. Josh Dubovie will be representing the United Kingdom with his song That Sounds Good To Me, penned by popmeisters Mike Stock, Pete Waterman and Steve Crosby. Can he better the credible fifth place of last year's UK entrant Jade Ewen (ably supported by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber)?
Josh's entry aside, the participants are a mixed bag of heartfelt ballads and campy Europop, which is what we love about Eurovision after all. A competition for statisticians and mathematicians, run by Kaggle, puts Azerbaijan's Safura, singing Drip Drop, in first place, followed by Germany (Satellite, sung by Lena) and Armenia (Apricot Stone, sung by Eva Rivas). Azerbaijan and Armenia will of course need to make it through the semi-final tonight to be sure of performing on Saturday.

Athens Collectibles

Most of the products here are not unique; they are listed under other categories too. We just thought of creating a separate category with bi-lingual products, useful to Greeks living abroad. These products may remind them of the country they or their parents came from to USA, Canada, Australia, all over the world. They may also help their children to maintain contact with the fatherland and practice in Greek language.

We shall be glad and feel proud to hear from you. You don't have to buy anything. Just come in and say "hello", discuss about anything you wish. Like talking to a friend.

Medea (Greek: Μήδεια, Mēdeia) is a woman in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of King Aeλtes of Colchis, niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios, and later wife to the hero Jason, with whom she had two children: Mermeros and Pheres. In Euripides's play Medea, Jason leaves Medea when Creon, king of Corinth, offers him his daughter, Creusa or Glauce. The play tells of how Medea gets her revenge on her husband for this betrayal.

In Greek mythology the sun was personified as Helios (Greek: Ήλιος, Latinized as Helius.) Homer often calls him simply Titan or Hyperion, while Hesiod (Theogony 371) and the Homeric Hymn separate him as a son of the Titans Hyperion and Theia (Hesiod) or Euryphaessa (Homeric Hymn) and brother of the goddesses Selene, the moon, and Eos, the dawn. The names of these three were also the common Greek words for sun, moon and dawn.

CNN - 7.2 Magnitude earthquake near Vanuatu

(CNN) -- A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck near the Pacific island of Vanuatu Thursday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
The quake prompted the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to issue a regional tsunami warning for Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.
"It is not known that a tsunami was generated," the Warning Center said in a bulletin. "This warning is based only on the earthquake evaluation. An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines in the region near the epicenter within minutes to hours."
