Check Out These Links Before The Big One Hits

The really big one is closer than you think.  One thing I know for sure is that I won't be living anywhere near it when it happens.

Handy information about oil.  The cooking kind, not the Exxon kind.

Ever wonder how Sbarro got its name?  Now you can know.  See the history behind the Sbarro name (and others) here.

I learned sewing, macrame, crafting, and other forms of old-fashioned Home Ec 101 skills early in life and they've come in handy ever since.

As I've traveled and read more about where I'd like to travel, I often come across places that are designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  This article tells you which countries have the greatest number of them.

I've never actually seen a Pirelli Calendar, apparently I don't have the right friends or connections to get my hands on one.  But now there's the Pirelli book, easy enough for us lesser mortals to get our hands on.

We were in Southern Italy in 2010 - Sorrento, Pompeii, Amalfi - but we didn't go to Naples.  As much as I'd like to visit, maybe we're not missing much.  Except the pizza.

I've seen 20 of these movies and they do inspire you to want to see other places in the world.

SO many great cities!

Ed's favorite dessert is banana pudding.  This recipe takes it to a whole new level.

There is more to see in Naples than you have been led to believe. It is one of the cities I enjoyed the most. Plenty of delicious food besides pizza, like just about any kind of seafood you could hope for. There are all kinds of historical and art works. The best bonus on a hot Summer day there are breezes unlike Florence and so many other towns in Italy.
