  12. Dawn - Dawn I am truly touched that you should consider awarding me 'The Blog With Substance Award' I feel honoured that you consider it worthy but this is also the reason I have decided recently that it is not right for me to accept such awards. I feel that they detract from the whole idea of my blog which is about our life in Italy and occasionally elsewhere. My apologies and I hope you understand and do not think I am a spoilsport. Maybe I should put a note about my feelings on my sidebar. I will continue to support as many bloggers out there as I possibly can but in my own way :)

  13. Rosebud - The sky is also one of my favourite aspects of Nature, I take so many sunset photos. So glad you are enjoying the blog, good to see you here again, have a good weekend :)
    Daydream Living - Sardinia is one of favourite places, but then so is all of Italy, that I have seen. I have had problems myself with following but it seems to be only temporary, I usually find leave it awhile go back and all fine, minds of their own these computers!!
    Laura - Enjoy your trip to Spain.
    Welshcakes - Thanks you too, icecream treat time again?
    Lakeviewer - Si una bellissima serata.
    Mama Hen - Glad you like it, have a great weekend yourself.

  14. The last couple of nights we have been able to see Mars next to the moon @ the Jersey Shore!

  20. Unkown Mami - Thankyou kindly.
