Map





The Cyclades are Greece's largest group of islands, consisting of about 220 remnants of an ancient mountain range. The only exceptions are the islands of Milos and Santorini, which are volcanic in origin. They are so named because they form a circle around the island of Delos, where the Greek gods Apollo and Artemis were said to be born.



With steep cliffs, beaches that range from rocky to white sand, and a warm, dry Mediterranean climate, most of the Cyclades economy is oriented around tourism. Naxos, the largest of the islands, does have some agriculture there. Naxos' potatoes are well known all over Greece!




The architecture of the Cyclades is very distinct, with white-washed, rounded exterior walls, buildings that are close together with narrow alleys, and the striking azure roofs!



The Cyclades are very close together, with ferries responsible for most of the transportation. A trip from Milos to Mykonos, which is about 125 nautical miles, takes about 4 1/2 hours, and costs $100, one way!

Now that I see it in the daytime, I'm amazed at how brown it is at John Day Fossil Beds. I know the east side of Oregon is desert and semi-desert, but after all the rain that dumped in western Oregon recently, I would have thought some of it would manage to dampen eastern Oregon. Obviously not.

A dusting of snow on the hills in Colorado. The mountains here are white with fresh snow. Did I sleep through autumn? Or did Mother Nature skip fall and go straight into winter?

It looks like your weather has settled down for the time being. In fact, your forecast looks downright nice. Your radar looks strange with three green circles clustered together, like water rings on shellaced furniture.

Hope your day is ending good!

I went looking, Ylee, but I didn't see anything online for NZ parrots/parakeets that seemed to match it. Unless it was an escaped exotic.

The color isn't very good on that cam but it looked like it might have been green with a yellow head. A fair size, too. I mean, not huge, like a macaw but about cockatoo sized; maybe a bit smaller. Larger than a cockatiel.

Hi, Tony! "The Blue Screen of Death" usually means a bad hard drive; Laptop HDs are notoriously fragile, in my experience! Hope the pro can salvage the data, or that the laptop was backed up!

Good day Ylee.
The neck is feeling better today.
I've tilted my chair back and that seems to help.
I've been working on the granddaughters computer that kept blue screening. I had to do a factory reset but every time I do Windows updates it crashes again. I think the hard drive may be shot. She may have to get professional help. :(
Working on the laptop give me a pain in the neck in more ways than one.
have a good day.

Good morning! A nice day starting out, temps were around 50 earlier, on the way to the 70s later, with just a few clouds!

Cams look OK; looks like the Kuredu cam is going to show a small shindig!

ycd, I'm here from 5 to 5, Pacific time, though I usually "check out" a few minutes early!

Building precariously seems to be a theme throughout the Mediterranean, IMO. Most of the stuff they do over there "wouldn't pass Code" over here!

After a long hot summer, this time of year should be exploited to the fullest, GG! Enjoy!

Glad to see your heat has passed, oz! Now you can pull weeds in comfort! ;' )

That's cool, bug! No ID for species?

Good morning Ylee:
The cliff-top hotel on Sifnos looks a bit precarious.
Maybe I read Dave Petley's blog:
http://blogs.agu.org/landslideblog/
too regularly.
It brings to mind a book I read awhile back about a study of the island of Santorini (Thira).
If I recall correctly: The volume of Ejecta for the volcanic explosion of Santorini was estimated at about 13 cubic miles; Karaktoa: 5 cubic miles; Mt. St. Helens: 1 cubic mile.
Edit:
Sheesh! How early do I need to get up to post a comment before you say "See ya later"?

A glorious morning over in the Greek Islands....:)

I have once driven down a dual-carriage with my side of the road dry and the oncoming traffic in rain! A most strange sensation!

Good evening! Another nice night! Not as cool as yesterday, when it dropped down 43 by morning, but still perhaps in the 40s!

Cams look OK. Nothing of interest to report!

Mass, I sent you a WUmail! I'm sure Tony wouldn't mind!

Wab, if it weren't for Milos, we could have had the Flisvos cam as a regular! It's really nice!

Two moons, eh, Sandi? That's neat! I saw the cresent Moon and Venus together in a cloudless sky while on my way to work this evening: I think that is a pretty as it gets, with all the colors!

Experiencing a downpour while the sun is shining is lots of fun, as long as you don't mind getting wet, oz! :' ) Hope everyone behaves with their matches!

Hi Ylee, can recommend Oz as a place to live and now the election is over peace reigns in the land of politics.... but how long will that last! I am glad we got our holiday in before everything shut down though. We had a funny experience driving in the Adelaide Hills at the weekend, the sky was blue and the sun was shining and there were a few clouds around and I said to my H looks like its raining up there. A few moments later still sun shine, still blue sky but the rain came down quite hard and it happened a couple of times! We heard a shop assistant talking to a customer saying she thought her dau had gone mad as she had just rung to say it was raining at their home! Yes today is a bit of a worry, high temps, strong winds and plenty of fuel on the ground. Fingers crossed no idiot decides to play with matches!

Got your WUmail, Tony! I don't know how much pull I have Upstairs, but you have my prayers!


Ylee!

I've noticed that you received some serious news from Tony by WU mail. If you'd be so kind, would you WU mail me, as well, so to fill me in on the nature of his serious health concern(s)? I've been following him along for quite a few years now and am somewhat alarmed by his recent absence again plus the tone of your response above.

Thanks!

Good evening! Plesant, if not cool, evening tonight! Temps are forecast in the mid 40s by morning, as we begin a stretch of dry, seasonal weather!

Cams seem to be doing OK; I had plans of scrapping this blog for a "thumbing my nose at the US gov't" blog. I may yet do it, I haven't made up my mind yet. All the cockroach feces that's going on in Washington tempts me to pack my bags and move to Australia!

Got your WUmail, Tony! I don't know how much pull I have Upstairs, but you have my prayers!

At the time I'm writing this, there looks what appears to be a miniature eagle perched on the birdhouse, cal! Hope you get rain!

Oregon's a pretty big place, Briar, so I'll give you a pass for not making it to John Day! I guess you'll have to wait a little longer! :(

It finished off at 3.75", GG! We still have some standing puddles!

Evenin', Todd! Hope your Monday was a good one!

I think that's "ground clutter" on the radar, oz! Lots of hills and whatnot to produce a false reading! It was nice and sunny today! Looks like you're getting a head start on Summer! Hope this isn't a precursor of things to come!

Ylee, I think you must be "enjoying" that wonderful rain storm that tried to drown us in the PNW about a week ago. That old typhoon from Japan must have sucked up half the water in the Pacific the way it has continued to take a dump all the way across the country.

The next band of rain is on the radar here. Looks like it's about 30 miles away. :-( Oh joy.

I timed my visit right this time! I can see the Greek cams, as it's morning there now. Nice!

I'll have to come by tomorrow to have a look at the John Day Fossil Beds. Would you believe I was born in Oregon and lived 2/3 of my life there and that place is still on my Bucket List? Wonder if I'll ever actually make it there.

Reading comments on your site, I have to agree a black spot for the sun is better than the sunlight overexposing the whole image.

The "moon"(apparently made out of green cheese, lol), is a reflection of the camera LED on the window!

Well I wondered.... I'd looked at the moon phases just Friday for something and knew the full moon wasn't due just yet.

Things look to be winding down at Tinos and there's a lovely sunset at St. George. Marred a bit by that black dot on the cam lens.

Morning Cam-man!
We have lovely Milos weather here this morning... it is hard to believe it is almost the end of the first week in October!
I have honeysuckle flowering again and fresh roses budding up!
Long may it continue, then winter won't feel so long!

Hope it dries out for you. The west of the country here had about the same amount of rain last week... but we needed it.

Good morning, from over-saturated Ky.! My rain gauge at home is showing over 3.5" in the past 24 hours! I checked the regional NWS offices, and Louisville has over 6" in the same time period! We have flash flood watches and warnings everywhere in the area; at least in my commute, there's nothing hazardous!

Cams are all showing nicer weather, even Perdido Key, which has a tropical depression it its' doorstep! One lone deer at the feeder! Lots of activity at Tinos!

Hi, GG! Okay, lots and lots of rain! Good thing things were pretty dry around here, or it would have been lots and lots worse!

Good morning, bug! The "moon"(apparently made out of green cheese, lol), is a reflection of the camera LED on the window! There are several cams that I've seen like this! It would be cool if a Roswell cam had that feature!

Lots of people out enjoying the afternoon at Tinos.

The Perdito Key cam is wet but it doesn't look too bad.

Deer at the feeder.

Is that a moon over the mountain at Sheep Rock?

The one thing I really hate on the new version is the Community Activity box. What a wasted space as I really don't give a rat's patooie who is posting elsewhere. I am only interest in where I am posting and to whom I am posting. I have blocked out everything else on here except the blogs because I no longer have to click to see my selection of "favorite places". For my local weather I go to the Canadian site for here. Better radar for me but I do access Detroit if I am expecting a big storm coming from that area. All in all, other than the excess garbage, this is really not too bad. Just too bad it's not set to included the older versions that a lot of people still have.

Have a wonderful wknd Ylee. Take care of yourself. Hope you have your snow shovel ready...LOL

Yeah, I was thinking about Doc. The last I heard, he has a really, really old computer and still used Classic. How he's kept that thing running, I don't know. Over the last 20 years, I've been through three desktops and am now on a lappy.

I justified the expense for the last three because my main method of communication is via email. I have my text phone for necessary calls but email is for keeping in touch with family and friends. Too, all of my doctors now have 'patient portals' for test results, confirmation of appointments, access to my medical records and other health related communications. (More danged sign ons and passwords to keep track of. Bleah.)

Then, there's you and other people, whose access is generally at work and internet access is very limited.

And the people that can't afford to upgrade.

One option for some is to network with any techie friends that like to upgrade every couple of years or so, when new gizmos come out. Let them know you're interested in their old model. That's how a friend of mine gets hers. Her SIL upgrades at the drop of a hat and she'll periodically buy his older models. At a greatly reduced 'family' price, of course.

Some computer repair places refurbish older models and resell them. I have no idea how well refurbished computers work but it's worth thinking about.

Our local Goodwill has all donated computers, keyboards, printers, mice etc, refurbished by a few volunteer techies and put out for sale at one of their branch resale stores, which carries nothing but computers and associated paraphenalia.

Dell sells refurbished computers.

You can sometimes get used models from hospitals and organizations when they upgrade. It helps to have a friend 'inside' that can tip you off at the right time.

None of which help you with your work situation and the Glitchomatic but it might help someone.
