Italians need their sense of humor these days: no Pope, government in shambles, economy in toilet. But it remains a great country to visit. So, I’d like to share a photo with you that I took while walking along a country road in Vespignano (plenty of free parking which is not the case if youContinue reading “And Now a Word from Caesar!”
Thanks for visiting this site to get the latest misinformation about the election of the next Pope. He is in Rome now. Actually I had a dream about the puff of white smoke, so I know the winner. This is the second blog I’ve written in the past week on the Pope, a subconscious actContinue reading “Pope Watch”

But this year we’veContinue reading “The Middle Ages in 2013”
I sometimes deal with today’s global turnmoil by watching “Perry Mason” shows from 50 years ago. Today’s show featured an elderly woman who says “swell” when agreeing to a suggestion from Perry.

Life moments are steps–keep running forward.
