Spent a couple of hours this morning, like the last 2 days, throwing wood down from the hillside above my house, after my man and our friend had been cutting a couple of old olive trees down, making plenty of noise and muttering away to myself about how knackering this work is. I then heard my lovely neighbour Frederiki shout me from the road below - "Alison, ti kaneis ekei kopella mou?" in my best Greek I told her what I was doing, and she told me she was off to do the same with her son in law and grandson. You know you are accepted in a Greek village when you are included in the "village communication system"!!!

Hey DCV if the wine is going off, I dont think you are trying hard enough, give me a call I am always willing to help out in getting your wine stock down to a a manageable level.
I would prefer to help you do this in Lakones as opposed to Paisley as I live on the Isle of Wight and can get to Corfu quicker

That's wonderful Alikee - it is back breaking work indeed!
Last year we just got a car-boot full of wood at a time as Oaf decided it was too much hard work on his own! Previous years I helped him - but I find it an impossible job with one hand after my strokes, I couldn't lift half of them!!

Seal your wine with a drop of oil, keep it always in glass, in the dark, and when using some from a large bottle decant remainder into a small one so the bottle is always as full as possible. If you do this it will keep a lot longer.
Olive oil should also always be kept in glass, not plastic, and in the dark. Use as soon as possible as with each year that passes it gets heavier
