Any Ron Flockhart reference is a good one. I remember “Flockey Hockey” very fondly.
I was in Italy in October/November 2004 for 2 weeks. What a great country! I wish I had seen Turin, but I spent a few days in Rome, Florence, Venice, and Positano. The people were great, except during the the US Presidential elections, where some Italians saw fit to give me crap, but I ignored it. Florence and Venice were just tremendous. Venice is either trashy or charming, depending on your point of view (I found it charming). Enjoy the wine! Even the cheap wine in Italy tastes good….]]>
