My guest book

I found this lined journal in the British Museum shop one trip to London.
The flap is magnetized - so it stays closed.

Not long before DH and I married, we had dinner with
one of my high school teachers and his wife.
They had the tradition of having all their guests sign a guest book ...
including notes who the guests were, the meal, the occasion ... whatever they wanted to remember.

I added this quote after an E-sister mentioned it ...
 though for my next guest book,
I think I will modify it to read "home" rather than "house".

Espresso makers in cars ??

Fiat plans to add in-car espresso makers to its new 500L cars.... only the European editions though. 

I have to wonder about the logic behind the idea ... haven't driven much in the rest of Europe, but here in Sicily drivers have enough distractions without adding in this.  Granted, the announcement said that the espresso maker would only work when the car was stopped .... that's just a challenge for some one to figure out a way  around it.

Here is the link for more information: 

My Scenic is a goner!

The after-math of a rainy night and wash-outs on a narrow road.
Mechanic told my husband it will cost more to fix
than to buy a different car.

Farewell my little Renault Scenic.

Brotwort seller in Berlin

Visited Berlin (Germany) last month with DH, DS and a co-worker (who lived 11 years there .. our own personal tour guide!)  Saw this guy at a couple of the tourist spots we visited.  Carries all that he needs to sell wonderful German sausages to passers-by. 

Richard Dawson ..

Nope ... I haven't fallen off the ends of the world .... though sure couldn't prove it from the demands in my life.  

Watching "Hogan's Heros" and "Family Feud" were staples in my life for many years ... loved Richard Dawson.  He will be missed greatly.

Saw this online on 3 June 2012 ... when it wa still "yes", no" or "maybe".
