"Bubby" Karaydis took Paul Leventis and George Poulos on a tour...

...of the watermills of Mylopotamos.

Bubby is an engineer (mehanikos) on the island. He spent almost 2 decades in Germany, working as an engineer.

His knowledge of the workings of the watermills at Mylopotamos is quite extraordinary.

Water travelled along a series of canals, all interlinked. Water would fall from a height into a designated water mill wheel, turning the wheel, and then the stone, and hence crushing the wheat.

Mills were owned by individual families.

Those who grew wheat, but had no mills, would bring their wheat - often with great difficulty - to the mill on a designated day.

A week later - the miller would have the flour ready for "pick up".

Once the water had passed through a mill - it would move on - further down the canals, to "turn another mill".

The engineering principles involved were quite ingenious.

The American from Tampa, Florida

who has restored the only watermill (capable of functioning) on the island.

His enthusiasm and hospitality is overwhelming.

He spends a great deal of time at the water mill of Phillipa - the name of his proyonis mill.

He maintains the garden and trees impeccably. It is like walking into the garden of Eden.

Archie Kalokerinos. Tribute by Marcus Blackmore

March 5, 2012

Today is a very sad day. I have just heard of the passing at 84 years of age of a great friend and true pioneer of Nutritional Medicine in Australia, Dr Archie Kalokerinos.

Archie had a wonderful knowledge of the clinical use of vitamin therapy in particular the use of IV VitC, but of even greater significance was his amazing dedication to his work with aboriginal people.

He practiced in a number of places but I particularly remember Collarenebri and Coober Pedy, I believe he wrote his book entitled ‘Every Second Child’ in 1981 when he was in practice at the former town. When he first went to Collarenebri infant mortality amongst aboriginal children was one in two, hence the title of his book.

Archie was able, largely through the use of sound nutrition and vitamin C in particular, to achieve normal caucasian rates of infant mortality with the aboriginal population.

I distinctly remember Archie and I doing a public lecture in the Adelaide city hall some 25 years ago; what was incredible about that night was the number of aboriginal people who had travelled, in some cases hundreds of miles, to see Archie. He was deeply admired by his aboriginal patients and the aboriginal professional health care workers with whom he came in contact.

In his lifetime he was not afraid to voice his objection to the overuse of vaccination or other medical practices that he believed warranted either re-examining or investigation by his own profession.

He had many detractors for his controversial views but among his patients he had many ardent supporters.

In 2000 Archie was awarded the title ‘Greek Australian of the Century’ by the Melbourne based Greek newspaper Neos Kosmos. I have little doubt that Dr Archie Kalokerinos will go down in our history books as a man before his time, much like my own father.

Archie, may you rest in peace, you have made a wonderful contribution.

At the launch of Professor Koula Kassimatis book, Kytherian Migrants in Egypt with a primary emphasis on Alexandria

Koula is expressing her thanks for the presentation of the book, at the lectern.

Seated on the far left is Mrs Kaiti Aroni-Tsichliis, Professor of History Koula. In the centre is Professor Nikos Petrochilos, President of the Society of Kytherian Studies. Seated on the right is Professor Soulogiannis.

Professors Aroni-Tsichliis and Euthimios Soulogiannis, jointly launched Professor Koula Kassimati's new book.

About Prof. Euthimios Soulogiannis

He is honorary Director of Research at the Academy of Athens, and had recently toured major US cities following an invitation by the “Alexander S. Onassis” Public Benefit Foundation (USA) to promote the Greek culture, history and tradition.

Soulogiannis was born in Alexandria, Egypt and studied Literature and History at the University of Athens. He received a postgraduate degree in Rome. He is a visiting professor in universities in Greece, the United States, Australia and Egypt focusing on the Diaspora Greeks particularly in Egypt, Africa, and the Middle East.

In an interview with the “National Herald” Greek-American newspaper he stressed that being born in Alexandria played a major role in his desire to study the Diaspora Hellenes.

Referring to the Greek-American community, he said that it has a great power and can affect issues of Greek national interest. He also said that the future of Hellenism in Egypt is uncertain because many Greeks have left, pointing out, however, that the Greek community now is more vibrant than ever.
