Last Christmas… I Gave You

Last Christmas I gave you my giblets, and you swallowed them whole.
This Christmas I’d give you the same but you went away, so I’ll give them to someone special…
Your old sidekick: Jingle Belle, Jingle Belle, Jingle all the way.

Christmas Lunch Anticipation 2013

Christmas Lunch Anticipation 2013

 

For anyone who lost any family member this year (including our  four-legged  mates), we remember with cheer those who brought happiness to our lives. NOEL Y’ALL
May 2015 be a healthy happy one, and hopefully a less cheesy Kamini Comet.

From Black Friday to White Christmas?

Black Friday, a large rhubarb of silly proportions and a new terminology to us rural Greek folk. Apparently it’s when people in the U.S and now spread to the U.K. stampede and maul each other in hordes to acquire something on the first day of Xmas sales. THE day after they pledged to being thankful for all they have. Now we know why it is called Black Friday!!

Best wishes to all from the Comet

So in the blatant interest of self promotion here is rhubarb from our little village, a rhubarb that should bring festive cheer and happy Xmas to all who participate. An ideal festive season gift (and no it is not for sale at Dimitra’s supermarket), it’s a plant, and excuse to include ourselves with her modest decorations and wish all happy joyful wot-sits and good health for 2015 from the Comet Corporation, as in Jennifer and myself.

It appears we may have touched a nerve and have come across and trying to blacken the nations of Britain and the States with this rhubarb, for which we apologize profusely. We misinformed rural Hellenophiles  often get our international news source from places as unreliable as CNN and BBC, our local news is impeccable however. Gossip here is always on the money, and our object at the Comet is to take the piss out of life, everyone and most of all ourselves. Please in future when and if you consult this site, bear in mind, it is written with a tongue-in-a-cheek. So have a nice day and enjoy the hols. Ed.

Closing Time

We inmates of Kamini do not define when the seasons change by dates and calenders, but by when dining establishments open and close.

It is officially winter when the last taverna shuts down for the season. The last hours at the Kodelania restaurant this week. Chances of a meal out in the village will most likely only occur for carnival next spring.

Remembering the Fallen

A century on; our little tribute. A wartime small field artillery shell and the closest thing we could find to a poppy around here.

The Artful Roger

At the traditional Roger-poem-reading for the closing of Pirofani, a certain colourful Barefoot Countess, who shall remain nameless, was heard to say, “I haven’t always liked your poetry, but this was a great one”. Bravo Rog and thanks Theo for yet another grand summer.
