--- Quote ---Antetokounmpo 5th Highest Paid Athlete in World

The basketball player rakes in 111 million dollars per year, between his salary at the Bucks and endorsements from big brands like Amazon, Nike and Pepsi

Antetokounmpo’s assent to the top 5 is even more impressive considering his rags-to-riches story, which originates on the streets of Greece where Antetokounmpo was an irregular migrant selling CDs with his Nigerian family.

Just goes to show what a thoroughly and annoyingly mixed-up world we live in nowadays, where nurses, police officers and others who really help people struggle to get by, whereas somebody who throws a ball through a hoop gets more for a morning's "work" than the aforementioned receive in a year.   :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant:

Maik:
Oh my, what've you done now, Bryan. You'll get Mary going.

Maik:
Four new Isuzu fire fighting trucks in a nice shade of blue were delivered to Kef fire department this morning, one for each municipality.

I'd guess all fire trucks, new and old, that are assigned to Municipality of Argostoli, will be based in Argostoli. Despite the time it takes to get from Argostoli to Poros / Skala.
