    Ah, Italian food! Wonderful -- and very traditional, I think. Were the gnocchi home made?

    Buon Natale to you too, IPTP! Did you get to see the Jacksonville game?

    Lots of good stuff (Tom missing receivers but still keeping the team moving forward with great poise and bravery, the return of LoMo and Rodney, Mike Wright holding up the middle in the absence of Vince, Ty Warren a beast again, good plays from almost everyone -- except for Tully Banta Cain's touchdown brain fart and Tedy's tackling being shown up by their shifty little running back.)

    Sounds like a great Italian feast. I'm Italian also, and on Christmas eve my mother always made seven kinds of seafood (The Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian Christmas Eve tradition built around fish of all kinds and prepared in as many different ways as possible). I copied that description from a website. Are you familiar with that tradition?

    Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo!

    yes, my friend.
    it was a nice day.
    pity that no-one was interested to talk about the Patriots too.

    when they see my t-shirts with Pat Patriot or Flying Elvis they ask me 'who is he ?'

    someone told me that Pat Patriot looks like a Mexican...bah...

    from wich area of Italy do you have origins ?

    anyway: un Sereno Natale ed un Buon Anno anche a Te ed alla Tua Famiglia and...Go Pats !!! The Best Team in the world !!!

    From a small town near Cassino, so I guess I'm half Roman and half Napolitan! That's 100% Italian anyway. Having dinner at my son's and daughter in law's house later tonight, so time to kill here.

    Ciao

    yes: i know Cassino - so you have 'Central Italy' origins

    ps: tomorrow is festa again as you know: Santo Stefano...

    then is over and it will be time to eat only salads and mozzarella and pomodoro in order to 'loose' what you gained...

    ciao !

    Life is good -- I had all my snow boots and parkas ready, but it's warm here. I went to a bar with a couple of young friends to watch the game yesterday. We drank Tremont beer and ate buffalo wings (no, those aren't the wings from buffaloes (!!) but chicken wings cooked in a hot sauce that originated in Buffalo). Great! http://www.thirstyscholarpub.com/home.htm

    I'm glad that your wife made the gnocchi -- good for her! It's a shame, but home cooking seems to be a dying tradition in the U.S. -- everyone seems either to go out or buy stuff ready made from the supermarket.

    Buon Natale, ItalianPat.

    I can't pronounce most of that, but I bet I could eat it all.

    Keep rooting for this Patriots team. We have many good players, but the personality of this offense is just growing now, I feel it.
