    Hi friends,
    We are here in hubpages working together as a family of writers. I know most of hubbers are full time freelancers. I write hubs on my free time, and I work as Sr. Design Engineer in a manufacturing company. What’s your full time work?

        I know it's suppose to taste that way I just don't like it.
        I have two brothers in law who are Greek. One was born in Greece the other one here in U.S.A.
        I learned to cook many Greek foods which I love..I can't spell most of the foods I cook and or like..I will try to sound out a couple though.
        Mousaka-Egg plant, potatoes-Lamb (can use beef)
        Tee-rope-i-tus (It's like a Feta cheese Quiche)

        Others with Lamb and dill
        Oh and there is that really red meat called Pas-tra-ma (I like it cooked with Eggs)

              We also have home-made Turkish delight made by our beautiful Effy. (Grandmother of 12 YO Nicholas) I have never questioned her as to it's origins. It tastes and smells strongly of roses and is amazing!
              Grandmother is quite religious, so we all support her Easter. She typically never talks about religion. Most Greeks I know don't seem to bother much with religion here, other than belief in god.
              I love the kissing and hugging that seems to be a part of who the Greeks are. A warm and loving family oriented lot! smile

                I love being around them. My one brother in law from Greece had his mom (Evdokia) come each year to the states. We all got together and it was amazing. We called his dad Baba and his mom Yayaka (dad and grandmother) go figure.
                They both passed away a couple years back within 5 days of each other. We miss them a lot.

                  Sorry for your loss. Strangely that's quite sweet - passing away within a few days of each other seems 'right.' Greek families are so close.

                  Greeks are great fun - very warm and full of Filoxenia and hospitality.

                  WriteAngled - Don't worry about the Greek bureaucracy - we can help you with that.

                  As for the freelancing - it depends upon whether you will have a mortgage or you intend to buy outright. In most areas, if you don't have to worry about mortgage payments, you can easily survive on freelancing. We do smile

                    I think this is right too. If my husband died I think I would lie down beside him and die too.

                    side. Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride. In the

          Is that a specific name brand for raki?  Raki definitely has that anise taste.  My memory may be faulty, but I think Turks called it Lion's milk.  They drink it with water, which makes it white like milk.

            Not sure about the Turks, but in Greece we have two spirits.

            Tsipouro is distilled from the left over Grape mash after winemaking. Many Greeks still use the Turkish word, Raki. It is yellowish firewater!

            Ouzo is the refined version, with herbs and anise. This is the one that turns white with water. I have not heard the Turkish name before, but Lion's Milk does ring a bell smile

              Thanks for the response Sufi!  In Turkey Raki is definitely the ouzo/anise tasting stuff.  Not a fan of that anise taste.  I'd be game to try the Tsipouro though!  Wonder if it's anything like the "first wine"?  Went to a great first wine party in Germany once.  Kinda like 'wine in the raw'.

            Cant you be a board certified psychiatrist and a resident psychiatrist?

            My understanding that board certification for psychiatry was the initial certification, then you applied for a residency position in a hospital.

            I know normally a residency is included within the medical certification, but only a few countries had psychiatric boards combined with medical and surgical.

            I could be wrong, I am just dredging up from memory something I wrote in an article a while back!

            Wouldn't really know what was right unless we had an unbiased psychiatrist on hand to answer the question!

              Can't be board certified until you complete 4 years of residency.

                Sounds like someone we previously outed, AdviceDoctor, re-surfacing.  But you'd think if that were the case, he or she would have researched more, or would have picked something easier to fake.

                "Being a Psychiatrist" is implausible on many levels.  And giving advice, criminal.

      In your profile you state "I have an M.D. and I work for a hospital."

      Could you explain this? Hospitals don't hire doctors.

      Even emergency doctors are a group who use hospital facilities but don't actually work for the hospital. ER doctor groups say we will treat your emergency patients if you allow us to work out of your hospital. These doctors are paid by insurance companies and patients but not by hospitals.

      Residents are doctors in training at a teaching hospital (I work at a teaching hospital)

        I looked up the psychiatrists as listed on the hospital site mentioned by Newyorker in another message. Looking for someone matching his given name of Dr G, I only found a practitioner who had qualified decades earlier and therefore would not match Dr G's stated age of 28.

      Maybe we should move to Melbourne. We're looking for a place in the sun but have been a bit phased about the bureaucracy in Greece, Spain and Italy. However, my partner is just about retired and I'm clinging on to a freelance living, so we're not economically atractive as immigrants.
