I think I will make a concerted effort to buy some produce of Greece to help out their ailing economy.

Halloumi, greek yoghurt, olives anyone?

I'll cook up my favourite greek recipe if you like. You start by lightly beating several million tax-dodgers, add a dash of chronic overspending, leave everything to marinade overnight with its head in the sand and finally serve very quickly before it retires at 50.... Then chuck the whole lot out and ask the nice German people next door for something to eat instead. smile

its probably all that money they spent on the olympics that did it!

Well I buy Greek Yoghurt from Marks and Sparks and then 'make like a Greek' by dolloping a load of honey on top. Does this count smile

I bought Portuguese wine to help the Portuguese... now I have to buy Greek wine to help the Greeks... Life is tough sometimes wine

radiohelen that is the most touching example of altruism that I have encountered for a long time

I feel almost humble in your presence grin

Oh, and Cheers!
