The Magical Myrtos Beach on Kefalonia Island

Kefalonia is an island in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. It’s marked by sandy coves and dry rugged landscapes. Its capital, Argostoli, is built on a hillside overlooking a narrow harbor. Kefalonia’s indented coastline is made up of limestone cliffs, bays and short strips of white sand, like Myrtos Beach in the north. Many beaches are only accessible on foot or via narrow twisting roads.

Avenger by Peter Chilelli 

The Avenger entered U.S. service in 1942, and first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Despite losing five of the six Avengers on its combat debut, it survived in service to become one of the outstanding torpedo bombers of World War II. Greatly modified after the war, it remained in use until the 1960s.

There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only  love. Johnny Depp

“If you catch me saying ‘I am a serious actor,’ I beg you to slap me

– Johnny Depp

The Flying Tigers, known officially as the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG), were a unit of the Chinese Air Force, recruited from U.S. aviators. From late 1941, the P-40B was used by the Flying Tigers. They were divided into three pursuit squadrons, the “Adam & Eves”, the “Panda Bears” and the “Hell’s Angels”.

Compared to opposing Japanese fighters, the P-40B‘s strengths were that it was sturdy, well armed, faster in a dive, and possessed an excellent rate of roll. While the P-40s could not match the maneuverability of the Japanese Army air arm’s Nakajima Ki-27s and Ki-43s, nor the much more famous Zero naval fighter in a slow speed turning dogfight, at higher speeds the P-40s were more than a match. AVG leader Claire Chennault trained his pilots to use the P-40’s particular performance advantages. The P-40 had a higher dive speed than any Japanese fighter aircraft of the early war years, for example, and could be used to exploit so-called “boom-and-zoom” tactics. The AVG was highly successful, and its feats were widely published by an active cadre of international journalists to boost sagging public morale at home. According to their official records, in just 6 1/2 months, the Flying Tigers destroyed 115 enemy aircraft for the loss of just four of their own in air-to-air combat.

VA-23, nicknamed the Black Knights, was an Attack Squadron of the U.S. Navy, established as Reserve Fighter Squadron VF-653 in December 1949 at NAS Akron, Ohio. The squadron relocated to NAS Alameda on 16 April 1951. It was redesignated VF-151 on 4 February 1953, and as VA-151 on 7 February 1956. It was finally designated as VA-23 on 23 February 1959, and moved to NAS Lemoore on 30 September 1961. The squadron was disestablished on 1 April 1970.

How Did Sylvester Stallone & Jennifer Flavin Meet?

Stallone and Flavin first met during a random encounter at a West Hollywood restaurant back in 1988. Flavin was a 19-year-old model and Stallone was an established action film star with several very public failed relationships under his belt. Stallone’s 10-year marriage to his first wife, Sasha Czack, ended in 1984 amidst rumors of infidelity. Soon after, Stallone met and married Danish model and actress Brigitte Nielsen, though that marriage imploded in 1987 after just 19 months.

On December 20, 1983, the Gilbert Grape star married make-up artist Lori Anne Allison in a traditional ceremony in their native South Florida.

Johnny, who was just 20 to his bride’s 25, are thought to have been introduced by her sister, who was dating one of Johnny’s bandmates.

Lori was also hired to do the make-up for the band, and as The Kids took off on the Fort Lauderdale club circuit, they couple decided to up the game and roll the dice in Los Angeles.

“We figured we were great in Florida, we’d be even better in California,” the actor said according to Johnny Depp: A Biography by Michael Blitz and Louise Krasniewicz.

But they couldn’t get the gigs and the band had to take side jobs, with Johnny working in telemarketing, selling advertising and personalized pens.

Then suddenly his big break came from nowhere thanks to his wife, who introduced him to the hot young actor, Nicolas Cage.

As the nephew of celebrated film director Francis Ford Coppola, Lori hoped Nicolas might be able to help Johnny make some extra cash as an actor.

The men quickly became drinking buddies and Nicolas hooked him up with an agent who landed him an audition for the horror film, Nightmare On Elm Street.

While the execs reportedly weren’t keen fearing he didn’t look the part, one of their daughters was and managed to convince them to take a punt.

Johnny told Playboy: “I got the job. I was stupefied. They paid me all that money for a week. It was luck, an accident. I did it purely to pay the rent. I was literally filling out job applications at the same time, any kind of job.

Nic Cage said, ‘You should try being an actor. Maybe you are one and don’t know it.’ I began acting, and I thought, well, this is an interesting road; maybe I should keep traveling on it.

“I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, so I started to read everything I could about acting—Stanislavsky, Uta Hagen, Michael Chekhov. I started soaking it up.”

Sadly as his career took off, his marriage collapsed amid claims both he and Lori fell out of love. They filed for divorce after just two years, reportedly citing irreconcilable differences.

Lori, however, still goes by the name Depp and went on to work with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood including Adam Ant and Christina Applegate, before launching her own range of lip glosses called Serendeppity.

Rochester Castle is one of the best-preserved and finest examples of Norman architecture in England.  Its great keep, square, massive and one of the tallest in the country, measures 113 feet high, 70 feet square and has walls 12 feet thick in places.  

It was on or close to the present castle site that the Romans built their first fort to guard the bridge carrying their legions over the river on their way from Dover to London along the Roman Watling Street and beyond. This point at Rochester was the lowest crossing point on the River Medway. Centuries later, in 1087, Bishop Gundulf – one of William the Conqueror’s finest architects – began the construction of today’s castle, making use of what remained of the original Roman city walls. The great keep was built by William de Corbeil, Archbishop of Canterbury, to whom Henry I granted custody of the castle in 1127.

The castle has had a chequered history, having been subjected to siege three times  – in 1088, 1215 and 1264.

A model has been installed in the castle’s chapel showing how the castle would have looked in the 14th century.
