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. Suocero, Mr. Kikko and Mr. & Mrs. Turtle

I took Mr. Suocero to the dentist's yesterday morning. He's always up for learning new things, like, bunny ears: 

^^ . ^^


Born in 1925, in a little town up north, he came to Rome in the 1950's to work at one of the 2 hotels his father was managing. He's a jack-of-all-trades, always ready to fix toasters and ovens and water heaters - there's nothing he can't do. A widower at 87, he's very active and independent. He lives with Mr. Kikko, a once upon a time kitten who's grown to be a very large cat.

More photos after the jump

















He also lives with Mr. and Mrs. Turtle ... Mrs. Turtle once fell from their 6th story terrace. 
That was over 25 years ago - her shell had cracked and they bandaged her up with scotch tape! 

Mr. Kikko today

Mr. Turtle tries to take a short cut, fails, takes the long route.
