So after the persession went by and I finally made it to the bakery, turns out it was closed for 1 month for vacation. I went home with no bread and that's life in Italy!

She's pretty but, for Italian standards, she's a disappointment. She didn't make it very far but she didn’t fall on her ass, which is what Miss America did. During the evening gown competition our Miss America took one step out and on the second step, hit the floor. Five minutes later she was eliminated. She did also have the fakest smile of all the contestants, a robot could have had a better smile. Miss Venezuela won. I could tell she was going to win during the swimsuit competition because of her walk. She had the walk of a winner.
Maybe next year...

The Collard Dove or Tortora dal Collare. Here is how it sounds:
It's loud and proud outside of my window first thing at 7am. It's not a bad way of waking up. At first I thought it was an owl but after some internet research, I discovered that not only is it a dove but it's also under threat of getting on the endangered list in Northern Italy. Luckily I've got mine here in Pecetto.

Now we Americans should remind ourselves that the making of a Hollywood movie is not more important than the most important day of a couple’s life and it's a good thing that Tom Hanks noticed the bride or she might still be standing there sobbing. And that's this weekend in Rome.

The differences between Italian bowling and American bowling is that they give you tickets for getting strikes and they give you little booties to wear over your socks when you put on your shoes. You can see they gave Pier pink ones. The scores? Well, I don't want to embarrass Pier BUT we did play 4 games and I won all 4. I won't reveal the scores...
