Almost 22 months since leaving the UK and entering Paradise Island,I couldn't possibly be more contented , I love every day more than yesterday, I have even begun to show my ....true age, grandchildten give me so much joy, so many laughs but they do tend to remind me of my age when attempting to embark on activities such as riding one of their bikes !! It is true what is said about real happiness, knowing your self and being comfortable being what you are, not the least pretentious no grandiose aspirations, down to earth and avoid of any stress, in fact the only stress I have is ....catching that fish!!
It was January 7th when I had my biggest catch of Seabass, Lavrakia, the day before I caught 7 but on the 7th of Jan I had a ....bonanza, 20 in all !! Apparently the nets broke due to bad weather and the Lavrakia were in abundance, some experienced anglers caught 100 plus !!
I so much look forward to Spring, just around the corner now, glorious summer just a few months away.
So pleased I got out of the UK, a nation that is totally absorbed by Brexit, political correctness, transgender issues, gay marriages, royal ...pregnancies and bloody traffic wardens. Not to mention the almost daily stabbings.
Not having to work is another benefit, no fucking calls to answer, not tied down by business commitments, had enough of that.
Cyprus is my Paradise Island even though the .....driving is fucking bad .

I hate these fucking dirty looking hair both on a man and a woman. Apparently it is obligatory for Cypriot and Greek men to display their masculinity. Its a bloody good job their dicks are not removable, can you imagine they would all be walking around with a dick on their ear, forehead even sucking it like a lolypop!!

My first visit to Paradise Island was in July 1966, 5 years after emigrating to what was then England, alas no more!!!
Iris wanted so much to see Cyprus, the country that produced such a .....charming man !!! We stayed only a few days but was enough for Iris to fall in love with Cyprus, a love that lasted to her drying day, an island that she chose as her resting place....
I was lucky that my wife shared my love for Cyprus, a love that my only daughter also chose to live and have children, has been here for 26 years.
I love the Cypriot free spirit, the sense of humour, the filotimo that one can still encounter almost on a daily basis. Needless to say that Cyprus isn't the same as the Cyprus I left in 1961 but neither is England now.
Anyone tired of living in Cyprus must be tired of life. I can't wait for the ....mespila, my most favourable ...blonde fruit !!

It wasn't with some hesitation that I accepted an invitation for Sunday lunch at the family house of a friend I met when I first started fishing in May 2017.
He had asked me before but I politely made an excuse, this time when he said that karaoli were on the menu along with zivania I just had to accept.
Never met his family but apparently my young friend had told them about me so they were anticipating meeting me.

Well, it was such a wonderful occasion, the Sunday lunch was a proper Cypriot one consisting of makaronia tou fournou, a roast pork , karaolous of course and all other meze. An old guitar was available and on being asked to play, although rusty, I obliged with a few old tunes !! I was treated like an old friend, such hospitable people and so so polite. The father , slighly younger than my self and a proper down to earth Cypriot, the mother such a fantastic host.
I had a fantastic lunch in an atmosphere of genuine pleasure at my company.
I love the sense of houmour that most Cypriots have and after saying my thanks for a wonderful time I promised to reciprocate soon.
By the way, I absolute hate pretentiousness, I prefer down to earth people and dont care what work they do or how much money- the root of all evil- they may or may not have. I suppose it comes from my childhood experience more so in the orphanage following my mothers death at the 1953 earthquake.

I remember your speaking of this Milti. The moronic, priestly “It was the will of God.” to a young child who’d just lost his Mother.

RIP to the lady. :(

A profound experience at an early life, it helped me on my road to rejecting the existence of god and to fully realize that this mythology must surely one day be exposed as such. Genesis, written by Moses, a nice Jewish man, has blinded billions the world round and in the process divided humanity. Genesis of course is the first of 5 books credited to Moses. He told the world that His God inspired him !!

Today completes 2 years of my living on Paradise Island. The happiest and most fulfilling years of my life. I say this with all honesty, its a dream that has come true, a dream I had for so many years.
Ofcourse I say this as a 73 year old, next month, who no longer has to endure the mundane day to day struggles that someone younger has to face.
Im extremely lucky to have a large family here in Cyprus that I cherish. So many nieces nephews, not forgetting my 3 grandchildren that give me so much joy.
I made it my goal not to get involved in matters that can inadvertently cause friction such as politics. I have learned much about Cypriot culture, as it now is, warts and all.
Fishing has given me a new dimension in life, something I never prior to coming here entertain. Always too bloody busy with work !
I intend to be around for another 24 years ,
But I no longer wish to ... get married !!
Still love the fairer sex , such a joy to be in the company of a gorgeous .....old bird, a bottle of red listening to Stratos !!
Have a great day on our Paradise island.

Even Moses may be part of the Myth as there is little of historical reliability in the bible until the Babylonian conquest period about 600 BC, when verifiable identifiable people can be found in other archeological sources.
There is a possibility Some earlier characters from about 850 bc can be found mentioned on some Stele.

Nothing before.

Jerusalem may at best have been a modest village at about the alleged time of David and Solomon.
