I decided to post a photo showing how the Italians do their laundry. Everyone hangs it out their window to dry - the day we ended up in the small villages along the Cinque Terre must have been laundry day. There was laundry everywhere! Even personal items are hung out to dry in the wonderful warm sun with the gentle breeze helping the process along. The British usually hang their clothes outside, even on drizzly days, but if necessary they hang their clothes around the house or in the "drying room" (the closet where the hot water pipes go through). Quite different to how we in North America do our laundry.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
