A far cry from the Mall
Kamini is probably one of the last places where one’s supermarket shopping receipt, (today 6th December 2010), is hand scripted on a page torn from a 2008 diary, January 17th.
It may not offer the variety in selection, or the hi-tech trolleys and computerised bustle of a K-Mart super shop, but we still prefer our local supply store.
Plus the parking is easier!
Oh… and did we mention, if a delivery truck is required, ours arrives no charge, on four furry legs with big ears and an awefully loud and obnoxious horn.
An awesome show at dawn
Hydra is famous for spectacular sunsets … but how about this (un-PhotoShopped) sunrise in Kamini, early December.
Official rhubarbs from the big city over the hill (past 4 Corners), Hydra, are that we have a new sheriff in town (mayor). This time, with a clear majority, so as not to scupper Miaoulis ships. To this end, we residents from outer Kaministan wish Angelos Kotronis, the new Chief Chair, the very best of office and our well wishes. We also wish to thank Kosta Anastopoulos for his 16 years of dedicated and constructive service to our community.
Weather and boats ashore; not shots of people in ballot lines, or purple fingers, or thumbs in the air, or other flag-waving events associated around the world when electing a new politician. Simply how outer Kamininstan viewed the day queue free… may the best man have won!!
The weather helped make it the holiday it should be.
Voting in Kamini passed without a hitch.
While there is still a learning-curve in progress, we hope you will enjoy our latest endeavors. It was noted that the Comet hasn’t been as active of late; some thought that perhaps enthusiasm had waned.
We intend to rectify this impression henceforth with weekly photos, more frequent inside news and images, and most probably an alternative slant to the rumors and rhubarbs. And we’ve added the ability for visitors to participate with their own muses and mutters.
Above all this is for fun; there is no hidden commercial agenda to the Comet. We like to share with those few who appreciate the outer/lighter side of Hydra. This is not an enticement in disguise; we will deliberately ungloss life in our valley. We like it as it is—too far off the norm for anything the ‘real-world’ should perceive as a real destination, other than a short visit. We do support commercial developmen—on other islands.
