Some of my recent finds and favorite web time wasters.
1. Because sometimes I need a break from everyday Italian to take a dose of good 'ol Americana; The Grilled Cheese Invitational Competition (be sure and click on their Flickr pics for tons of drooling goodness) and the Tilamook inspirational grilled cheese pages. Oh to be a judge......

Ellis Island website where I found my ancestors that arrived to America, what boat they were on and how old they were, and who they traveled with. I spent hours on this site!
most beautiful villages in Italy (I Borghi piu belli d'Italia). Click on a region and see a list of where to find the most historically and well preserved towns. Site is in Italian and English. When you click on a town a wonderful page comes up with the town's history, directions, and some pictures.
