Are You The Skinny, Salad-Eating Type?

I'll admit it...I love eating good food. Does it show sometimes? Of course. But I can't help it. It's what happens when you descend form a lineage of great cooks. My weight has always fluctuated since my teens and there are times where I've overdone it, but now I combine healthy eating with an...

Got Any Juicy Gossip? I Don't.

I'm spending the Easter weekend at my parents' house, which is in a small town along the southern coast of Sicily. Yesterday, as part of the Easter celebrations, the nearly 600-year-old tradition of the re-enactment of Christ's Passion and Death, took place, as it does all over Sicily. It can be...

The Silence Of The Lambs

Easter is just around the corner, and with that so are the banquets.Though I'm not a vegetarian, in the last few years I've given up eating lamb or goat at Easter, and in general. I just can't bear that their sweet, friendly faces are slaughtered for someone's gluttony. I know it's a practice and... Sign in to see full entry.

How Do You Deal With Being Accused of Something You're Not?

Well, having been tarred and feathered earlier by two bloggers who shall remain nameless, I've come to ask myself, does it really bother me when people accuse me of something I'm not? Are you strong enough to back your opinions, or do you hide your head in the sand and not speak up for yourself?... Sign in to see full entry.

WOOHOO! My first catfight on Blogit!

It took me three years but I eventually got there! Regarding what? You guessed it....my Obama blog. Why is that trying to make people reason amicably without insulting only generates anger and hate? All that's in that blog is my opinion as to why I don't like Obama as president. And the comments... Sign in to see full entry.

Life Long Learning

Are you like me, who could not have been bothered to pay much attention to the subjects you learned in high school or at university, and now find yourself studying them again with passion? Within the last year I have found myself studying three subjects that I could not have bothered with lots of... Sign in to see full entry.

Politeness these days - where has it gone?(Repost)

Note:I posted this some 2 1/2 years ago, yet sadly I've noticed things haven't changed much... Could be that I'm getting on in the years, but when I travel with youth on mass transit I just either want to slap them or get off the means entirely.....I can't stand the rudeness anymore. Case in point:... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Drink The Kool-Aid: Why I'm Voting For Clinton

Reposted from elsewhere, but my feelings exactly. Everyone likes to bash Bill Clinton for talking about his wife and helping with her campaign. If everyone would think for just a minute, Bill Clinton was an awful husband while in office, but was a great president and she was a great first lady. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Whoa, What A Nightmare...

amd thankfully, a nighmare it was - but still, when I woke up, I felt uneasy. Maybe my conscience is trying to tell me something? During my deep Sunday slumber session I dreamt that I was walking down the street and that at different periods during the walk I encountered two people with whom I have...
