Currently, thunderstorms over Kef today still looking probable, more so on Sunday. Fire risk down to 'Medium' today.

I gather Kef has had some rain - although maybe not every part of the island. Still time...

Pet law in Parliament for debate and vote

An Interior Ministry law introducing a stricter framework for pet ownership will be discussed in Parliament at the committee level starting on Thursday before being put to a vote next week.

Seeking to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs, the new legislation makes spaying and neutering obligatory within six months of a pet’s acquisition (on the condition that it is over a year old).

Breeders and other pet owners who are entitled to not spay or neuter their animals will be required to send a DNA sample to a special department that will be created at the Academy of Athens, allowing authorities to trace the provenance of new litters.

Failure to sterilize a pet will carry a fine of €1,000.

Animal abuse is now also more clearly defined and has been raised to a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a fine of up to €50,000.

New Discovery Reveals Thriving Pop Culture in Ancient Greece

A new discovery by a British archaeologist at UK’s Cambridge University reveals that in ancient Greece there was a thriving pop culture.

The poem, unparalleled so far in the classical world, consists of lines of 4 syllables, with a strong accent on the first and a weaker on the third. This allows it to slot into the rhythms of numerous pop and rock songs, such as Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.”

As Gus My Big Fat Greek Wedding Portokalos would say: Greeks invented rock 'n' roll.
