CONNECTICUT 

From: Mario

Hey Connecticut. You have a neat state, is your state the one where Vince McMahon is from? I have 2 other quick questions. (1) Any Greeks in your state? (2) I have a friend named Rich from there, any resources on how I can locate him?
Thanks,
mario@herohill.com


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Dear Patron:
Your inquiry was forwarded to me for a response.
Although Vince McMahon was born in North Carolina, he was raised in Greenwich, CT. You can find more biographic information about him at: http://www.askmen.com/men/business_politics/35c_vince_mcmahon.html
The Ancestry tables for the State of Connecticut have not yet been released by the Bureau of the Census for the year 2000. I did, however, find the 1990 figures posted on the website of the Bureau of the Census (www.census.gov). You can try the following link (http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/BasicFactsTable?_lang=en&_vt_name=DEC_1990_STF3_DP2&_geo_id=04000US09), but since it's the URL for my search on the Census site, it may not work for you. According to the 1990 Census, there were 26,646 persons of Greek ancestry in the State of Connecticut at that time.
I am afraid that we cannot help you with the search for your friend Rich: shortened first names or nicknames are simply not enough information to work with. I am sorry we could not be of more help in this matter.
Thank you for your interest in Connecticut,

Dear Mr. Greek,
I appreciated the opportunity to read your e-mail correspondence of May 20, 2001 regarding bilingualism in Canada that was forwarded to me by Aurele Gervais. As the Member of Parliament for West Nova, I always appreciate hearing from the citizens of my constituency and being made aware of their views.
You can be assured that the promotion of Canada's two official languages is an important priority for the Government of Canada. You can be further assured that the promotion our two linguistic communities is an important issue for me personally as the Member of Parliament from West Nova.
Furthermore, as the issue you have raised falls under the general purview of the Honourable Stephane Dion, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs. I have taken the liberty of forwarding your letter to Minister Dion's attention. I am sure the Minister will also appreciate knowing your views.
Once again, I appreciated the opportunity of hearing your views on this matter.

(message)
Hey HRM, I am Fairview resident and I'd like to promote growth and prosperity in my neibourhood. Is it o.k if I do so, i.e, parties, signage, etc... Also at one time there was a sign on the Dunbrack Highway that showed the direction to Fairview. It has since been taken down in favour of a new road. I think that's unfair to Fairview and for those looking for Fairview. If possible could I have the sign, I am a long time Fairview resident, show us that you care.
Thank you for your time margreek@hotmail.com


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Mr. Eleftheros,
Thank you for your email.
We have not been promoting destination signs for communities within the urban core of HRM. This, we believe, is a carryover from pre-amalgamation ('96). Areas such as Spryfield, Armdale, Jollimore, Rockingham and Fairview (as well as others) have neither "place name" nor "destination guide" signs. They became, we believe, part of generic Halifax at the time of Annexation in 1969. We would note that these communities are not identified on the HRM Official Place Name list and are not sure if there are definitive boundaries for these areas either. That is, at what point in the road does one leave Spryfield and enter Jollimore?
The one exception that we are aware of is on Trunk 3 (St.Margaret's Bay Rd.) at Northwest Arm Dr. where these various communities are identified on Guide signs. These signs were produced by others in error at the time of the connector ramp construction and funds were not allotted to correct the sign messages. We expect those corrections will be made during replacement of these signs in years to come. Yours truly,
Taso Koutroulakis, P.Eng.

Yes, Mario, "catsup" is the same as "ketchup" - it is simply a different spelling from days gone by. Years ago the "catsup" spelling was used much much more than it is today. In fact, even the company that makes Brooks Catsup has gone to spelling it "ketchup" these days.

Hello President Bush,
Congratulations on getting those pilots back from China. I have a question for you. We're a little confused about you up here in Canada. On your American tv shows, that we're forced to watch up here, you're described as not actually being in charge of the country. They say that the vice-president, Dick Charlie, is actually running the country. Surely there's no truth to this! Are these just jokes of some kind?
Thanks for your time and keep up the good work. If you're doing any work in the first place!

(message)
Hi, my name is Mario. I am from Greece and am concerned about Greeks in space. My question concerns whether there are any plans for a Greek astronaut or an american astronaut of Greek descent to enter space with your program. The reason I ask is because there is an ancient prophecy dating back to around 3200 B.C that states that any Greek entering the realm of the higher Gods (i.e space/galaxy) will face mass destructing from our Gods and fulfill an eternity of life in exile. So as you see my concern is ligitimate, if in fact you have some belief in this ancient prophecy. So for my own concern, could you please help me out and let me know.
Thanks!

Dear US Government,
I recently visited the States and ate some chicken, and I have since become very ill. Through expert Canadian medical advice they say I have Mad Chicken Disease. If I die I will sue the US like crazy. Instead of sueing, I am willing to accept a voucher for free chicken at KFC.
Thanks,
Mar Greek


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Dear Mr. Greek,
All chickens found in retail stores are either inspected by USDA or by state systems which have standards equivalent to the Federal government. Each chicken and its internal organs are inspected for signs of disease. The "Inspected for wholesomeness by the U.S. Department of Agriculture" seal insures the chicken is free from visible signs of disease. Inspection is mandatory but grading is voluntary. Chickens are graded according to USDA Agricultural Marketing Service regulations and standards for meatiness, appearance and freedom from defects. Grade A chickens have plump, meaty bodies and clean skin, free of bruises, broken bones, feathers, cuts and discoloration.

Dear AAA,
I am confused, I recently became a member of AAA. They promised to give me auto assistance if I ever had car troubles, there was no mention of alcohol. I do drink but its not a problem! All I want is automobile assistance and not a 12 step program of mt drinking habits. I mean I do get loaded some times (maybe once a month) and get into a fight or 2 but by no means is it a problem. Anyway, just fix my car!!!

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Dear Mario,
The following Greeks have won the Nobel Prize;
1963, Literature, Giorgos Seferis
1979, Literature, Odysseus Elytis
To be considered for a Nobel Prize you have to be nominated by a person who has the right to make nominations. Every year thousands of persons are invited to make nominations, and they have to do so before February 1, the same year the prize is going to be awarded. You will find more information about the nomination procedure under each prize category on our website, www.nobelprize.org.

KANSAS TOURISM

(message)
Hi, I am from Canada and was planning a trip to Kansas. The only things I know of your country is the reference in "The Wizard of Oz"..."we're not in Kansas anymore..." Does that have any special significance? Anyway, I hope to come this summer, where is the best place to visit?
Thanks, Mario


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Dear Mr Eleftheros....
The line in the movie "The Wizard of Oz," 'We're not in Kansas anymore,' is a poke at the stereo-typical perception of Kansas as being "colorless"..... i.e. boring, flat, uninteresting. The movie is black and white at the beginning and at the end..... while in Kansas. When Dorothy and Toto step out of the house, which has crashed down into the Land of Oz, the movie suddenly changes over to color... thus Dorothy's remark to Toto.... "We're not in Kansas (i.e. a dull, uninteresting place) anymore!"
Of course the problem with stereo-types is that they're not often true when one looks at the big picture. So I hope you're able to make it down to Kansas to make the decision of how "colorful" we are on your own!
A big help in deciding what to do/see would be getting a copy of the Kansas Getaway Guide. You can order it from the Kansas Dept of Commerce & Housing at:
http://www.travelks.org/guide.asp
Also... on the same site toward the top of the screen you'll find a couple links, POINTS OF INTEREST and TRAVEL ARTICLES. Click on these to read/see a bit more.
I hope this has been of help to you.
Sincerely,

Hello,
I'm sure you've been asked this a million times, but why did you name your band after the dog in The Wizard of Oz? My colleagues and I have a number of theories, but I thought I'd come right to the source.
Thanks,
-Shane


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Shane,
the band was not named after the dog. The band was seraching for a name when Jeff Porcaro saw the movie the wizard of Oz on TV.He didn't care for the the dog he just liked the name..the next day he met with the other band members and he said what about "Toto". David Hungate who knew Latin said that "toto" in Latin means "all encompassing", so it is an accurate name for a band who wants to do all kinds of musical styles.
Check the history on the website for questions like that.
Best regards

Hello,
My friend Mario says that the song "Love Shack" refers to an actual place, or shack if you will. I think he's crazy and the song is simply a metaphor. Perhaps you can help answer this, I can't find info about this anywhere.
Thanks,
-Shane


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Shane -
While the song speaks of a ficticious place, the "shack" used in the video DID exist, until recently, when it was torn down. I know a few people that have the actual pieces from the shack.

Just a little question and warning perhaps. I have heard rumblings in the Halifax area of animal right protesters planning to protest the name Split Crow, saying it promotes violence against crow's. Where does the name originate from and maybe I can get the word out.
Thanks, margreek@hotmail.com


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Here's the story on the name - hope it will quell the protesters...
The Split Crow Pub - A History
On July 17th, 1749, Governor Cornwallis granted a license to sell Beer and Liquor to a Mr. John Shippey. This was the first liquor license to be issued in New Scotland, (now Nova Scotia). John Shippey named his tavern "The Spread Eagle", as its sign was taken from the German coat of arms, The Double Eagle. Shortly after opening, the tavern became affectionately known as "The Split Crow".
John Shippey's Split Crow, located at the southwest corner of Salter and Water streets, quickly became a second home for sailors, mariners and travelers. They were given comfortable lodgings, food and generous mugs of grog. In the tradition of the day, music was played, ladies entertained, politics were discussed and, inevitably, fights broke out. One of these fights resulted in the first ever murder charge in Nova Scotia.
More than 250 years later, although in a different location, The Split Crow, continues to serve mariners and travelers from around the world and nearby. A welcome smile, hearty platters of food, generous mugs of grog and, of course, great music.the tradition continues.
You are always welcome at The Split Crow.
thanks for you email

Nice restaurant. I am not from T.O but I have eaten there many times.
For a joke once I went in and ate while on vacation and wore a "Gretzky sucks" t-shirt. The waiter said I should remove the shirt or face the consequences. I was afraid that he may spit in my food, so I took it off. I do like the Great One alot, it was only a joke but would the waiter really have done something to my food? Just curious.

If your concern is that the waiter may have done 'something' to your food let me assure you that our staff are nothing but professional and would never, under any circumstances, do 'something'(quote) to any guests food.
Thank You

Dear Boy Scouts,
What's the deal with your club, the outfits suck, the activities suck and from what I hear the boys "suck" from time to time, if you know what I mean. What's the real story on your organization? Sounds like a scam to recuit young boys for God knows what.
Concered,
Mario

Dear Mario,
The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.

Hi, big fan, I have 2 questions I hope can be answered. First off, I heard that you were on a sitcom in the 70's or 80's, was it Three's Company? If it was you have changed quite a bit and 2, I heard that recently you were in the Gaspe region of Quebec I think I saw you there, do you come to Canada often?

(message)
Hi Jet, I think you rock. I was in Athens Greece last summer and some dude was telling me he was your cousin. He said that you were going to come to Athens but decided not to because he said that you hated Greeks, please tell me this isn't true. I am a big fan of yours and if this were true I would be devastated.
Thanks, margreek@hotmail.com

Mario,
It is not true. Jet harbors no ill will towards Greek people.

Whats the deal with Benicio, I hear he's been passing him self off as Greek all around Hollywood. He can't be Greek so what nationality is he?
Thanks, margreek@hotmail.com

I'm afraid all I know is that he was born in Puerto Rico. And like you, I doubt he's "Greek"!!!
Take care!

Hey Clancy, I am a big fan, I think...I see you in quite a few movies as the a minor character, but important to the flow of the movie, kind of like the Ron Harper of the Bulls Championship seasons. My question is, well maybe like a comment, I like you better with your flowing curly locks, any plans to grow those back?


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Hi there,
Although I am not Clancy Brown, nor do I have any way of sending him this email directly, I have sent the question you asked to the editor of the CB Fan Club Newsletter. She may publish it in the area for fan questions which Clancy does read and responds to. If your question gets asked and answered I will email you and let you know what his reply is! Thanks for writing!

Hi again.
It turns out Clancy did answer your question in the last issue of the newsletter. He said he currently has no plans to grow his hair back.
Thanks for asking,

Hey Kev, my name is Mar and I've watched your show Hercules several times. I am Greek and I'd like to thank you for making a mockery of one of our greatest legends, Hercules. People think he's a big joke from some sort of fantasy land. Are you still making episodes of your show? You are well hated in Greece.
Hope to hear from you, margreek@hotmail.com

Many thanks for your e-mail to Kevin Sorbo, which will be shared with him.
While Kevin is finished filming HERCULES, he will soon start work on his new series, ANDROMEDA. Perhaps you would enjoy keeping up with all of Kevin's activities through his official fan club.

MEREDITH BAXTER

-------------------------------------------

(message)
Dear Meredith,
I am a big fan, I love you. You were great in the movie "Breast", that was the title right? How did you feel showing your breast, especially since alot of people like myself saw you as the "mom" next door. From your days on Family Ties you seemed like you were one of my friends moms.
All the best,
margreek@hotmail.com


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
When Meredith made "My Breast" it was not "exposing" her breast to people, it's what women must go through for a breast exam. She thought there was nothing wrong with doing an educational scene like that, in hopes that it would help other women who have concerns about breast cancer.
Thanks for writing.

Hi Illeana, I think you are great, I'm a big fan. If I could get an autographed pic that would be great. I loved you in the TV show, "Action". I have a quick question, in that movie, "Alive" you were in, if you were in the situation where you had to eat someone, who would you like to eat? I know I'd pick you.
Thanks, keep up the great work

Hey Anthony, I am a huge fan, I grew up watching your movies, I love then to this day! I have a quick question, I heard there may be a Weird Science 2, have you heard anything and what do you think of that Weird Science T.V show, if in fact it is still on the air?
Thanks, your pal, margreek@hotmail.com


-------------------------------------------

(reply)
Thanks for you email. I haven't heard anything about a "Weird Science 2" and although I was flattered by the tv show I thought it was whack. I just added some new memorabilia to my merchandise page on my site including limited edition signed screenplays and my debut CD. Check it out. Log on to order.
All the best and thanks again,

Hi Cheryll, I hope I'm not being too forward but I must say that you get more and more beautiful as the years go on. You are a heroine for natural beauty and for older woman to be themselves. I am a 40+ woman, how do you do it? I'm so proud of you, what's the latest with you? Do you act anymore, or is your career over? Ithink it's my kids that make me old... Any tips? Do you date hairy over-weight Greek men? I do, that may be a problem.
thank-you
