Sorry for M.I.A …


Sorry for Missing in Action my WP friends,but my comments on most posts are spammed.I just write my comment and it disappears instead of being posted.Hope Akismet helps me soon and be able to comment decently again …

Till then : I will be running on the stadium  …. until I catch up  …

I’ll be running on the Stadium at the Archaeological site of Olympia and try to catch up …

Vestiges from the Past

Pediment of the Temple of Zeus in the Archaeological Museum of Olympia.
It’s opposite the excavation site of the Kronion Hill. The Temple of Zeus at Olympia housed the renowned statue of Zeus (13m/43ft) high, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.It took Phidias 12 years to complete it.

Hope it doesn’t take that long for Akismet …

~ You all have my Love ♡ … ~

  4. Stunning! … I wonder what has happened with the original sculpture of Zeus at Olympia… Sad that it was lost!
    Love and all my best wishes, dear Doda Aquileana 😀

    • I am so sorry I didn’t spot your lovely comment earlier Aquileana Dear.Being on hols and on the go most of the time,I am almost away from any WP activity and I rarely join just to play catch up quickly and that’s all.Any how,the story behind the titanic Zeus sculpture is truly sad. Unfortunately, the statue no longer exists. After the Olympic games were banned in 391 C.E. by the emperor Theodosius I as Pagan practices, the temple of Zeus closed.Olympia was further struck by earthquakes and floods and the temple was also damaged by fire in the fifth century C.E.However,earlier, the statue had been transported by wealthy Greeks to a palace in Constantinople,where it survived for some time before it was destroyed by a severe fire in 462 C.E. Today nothing remains at the site of the old temple except rocks and debris, the foundation of the buildings, and fallen columns.Thanks my friend for your concern;I really know your love for the Greek mythology and history…
      Love & more to you,take care 🙂 Doda xxx

  8. So sorry Doda that you too are now running the gauntlet of being spammed.. Your last comment upon my post I did get.. and I waded through over 500 spams to see if any one was in there who shouldn’t be and all was ok..

    Loved your photo’s of the stadium.. I saw a wonderful stadium in Cyprus similar to this… Love History xxx 🙂 it was one of my best subjects in school Lol.. 🙂
    Love and Hugs Sue xx ❤

    • Thank you so much Sue Dear for your sympathy … To be honest,I was thinking of you as I could very well remember your last “spam” experience.A real gauntlet as you describe it,very disappointing and time-consuming.I spent all my day and my night,yes,my night,writing comments and then seeing them disappear into thin air … lol ,plus that I had all these connections with the Akismet and the Akismet people and the help Forums to get some help.Nevertheless,they were very helpful and the problem was eventually sorted out.

      Yes,there are some similar stadiums in Greece and the one you saw in Cyprus,but this one is in Ancient Olympia where the Spirit of the modern Olympic Games started … It’s still the place where they receive the Olympic Flame in order to travel to all the Olympic Games and events worldwide.I’m certain sure you know that,but you ignited my Greek pride and …. I had better end … while sending you my love and hugs 🙂 ❤ ♡(◠‿◠✿) ♥ xxx

If you do,you will see your current account appear … Any how,there are many ways to get real help,but you have to persist and it’s time-consuming.When I had the problem with my WP spammed comments,I spent all day on that 😦 😦 😦 ….
