Cheesegod.com Recently spent 2 weeks in Greece. The country, not the substance… or the play… although I must say I think Mr. Fish would make a great Sandra Dee. This is the first of what may be many, or just a few updates to result out that trip.

America has a had a major impact on countries all over the world, with American brands such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola infesting every corner of the earth.
