That would be me, Mrs. Moglie. Married to a native Italian, Mr. Marito.
Mother to a daughter in high school, Ms. SmartyPants and a son in middle school, Mr. Uometto.
Employed at a private British School as an English teacher and Coordinator of Children's Studies.
Part of a small, but growing Protestant church in Frascati, a small town in the hills just outside of Rome.

This is where I sometimes gripe, complain and grumble about the things I dislike, have yet to get used to or simply don't understand about bella Italia.
I do, however, have many people, places and things that I dearly love and I am more than aware of being blessed by each and every one of them.
Also - a few helpful posts for visitors to Rome or for newly arrived ex pats. Check the side bar for tags. I've even some recipes that I've borrowed, tweaked or invented. One thing I've come to love about Italy is how it's changed the way I eat - slow food !! Although ... I do miss Taco Bell ... and Jack in The Box ... and KFC ... and ::sigh::
Thanks for stopping by !!

Mr. Marito is a Pirate

thumbs up if you like pirates

Mr. Marito likes to fish. Mr. Marito owns a boat which he keeps in Ostia. Mr. Marito's boat has a (very) small black flag with a white skull and crossbones design. Mr. Marito works for the Italian Treasury Department which in Italian is generally referred to as, Ministero di Tesoro (the name keeps changing with each new game of musical chairs that the Italian government seems so fond of playing). Tesoro means treasure. So you can see why, when Mr. Uometto was but a wee second grader in elementary school, he believed that his father was a real life honest to goodness PIRATE haha!
