Greeks play good basketball

Who woulda thunk it? The Greek basketball team has made it to the FIBA World Championship Quarterfinals, after a smashing game against China today, with a final score of 95-64. Greece is among four teams that are undefeated in the championship, and they will face off with France on Wednesday. Providing that Greece wins against France and the U.S. win against Germany (well duh, like they won't), Greece will stand up to the Americans on Thursday.

If you want to know who I will root for in that event, my answer is when in Rome...

I'll root for Greece all the way to their slaughter against our troops!

Lebron and the boys are waiting!!!

I can't get an e-mail through to you from the good ole USA. From Nash Vegas. So I'm going to "post a comment" that is the e-mail I tried to send ...

I was bored at work and came across your blog, Mel's Diner. I'm sitting in my office in a high rise across from the Tennessee state capitol. Hume-Fogg graduate, and you are 36? So am I, both 36 and part of a group known as just a bunch of nerds having a good time. Who be You?
I be Micaela Brown.
Back in Nashville with husband after detour through Oregon, NYC, New Jersey. Nashville sucks, be glad you are somewhere interesting!

HFA did have a good basketball team, btw. Go Knights.

I'm looking for some help…
(I'd write an e-mail, but the link doesn't seem to be working)

We're starting a podcast for/by people who have immigrated to another country. We'd like to bring stories/articles by contributors FROM every continent, TO every continent. (i.e., a Mexican living in Canada, or a Scot living in France, a Dane living in Japan, an Ecuadorian living in Brazil, an Australian living in Africa, etcetera, etcetera.)

The "immigrant" category is rather large, examples include: expatriates, academics, aid workers, refugees, foreign businesspeople, spouses of "foreigners" etc.

I've written to quite a few organizations searching for good contributors; journalism schools, international corporations, non-profit aid organizations, etc. I've had a lot of interest, but not a lot of actual work submitted.

I was hoping to find help here in the blogosphere, as you all are prolific writers!

Please help! I need people to contribute articles (2-3 pages), 3 times per year. You may of course choose the topic, it may be light or heavy. Please see the guidelines set out in our website in the "contribute here" section.


P.S. Podcasts will be available starting mid-to-late September, please check us out on itunes; Rabbit Hole Daily. (Go to the website for an explanation of the funny name)

Hey Micaela, I seem to be having a hard time sending an email to you too. I just tried again, we'll see if it gets through this time.
