GMB & Co ~ . ~ .. όχι is not a simple negative. It is a defiant NO!! Όχι day is celebrated as the day the Greeks defiantly said NO! to the Italian dictator Mussolini. 'Greece can fall. back into the drachma. It could be difficult for the first 2 years. After all our ancestors lived on similar austerities, inflicted by the same Germans during the WWII. The then government was forced to borrow bank notes to help pay for the German war. Did the Germans pay anything? No!' SP
1988 ~ I remember this day well ~ Discovery lifts off from its platform at Kennedy Space Center on September 29, 1988. Exhaust plumes billow from the two solid rocket boosters and covers launch pad as the Discovery, atop of the orange external tank clears the launch tower and heads for Earth orbit. STS-26 marks NASA's first human spaceflight mission since the 51L Challenger accident, January 28, 1986.
