    Psycheinaboat!! I haven't spoken to you in ages. So glad you dropped a note. We are all well. How about you? I'll send you my personal email in a PM. I get nostalgic too for the old Lit Net days.

    That sounds wonderful PIB. Florence is possibly the best city in the world. I loved it myself. If you go back, try to go to Venice as well. That's the most beautiful city in the world hands down.

    PIB!! We are great. Matthew just turned two years old. Have you gone through some of my blogs to see pictures and stories of my fatherhood? I think you would enjoy them.

    Your summer sounds fantastic! I love Italy. I'm of Italian ethnicity by the way. Where in Italy did you go? I would love to hear about that.

    Looking forward to seeing you around here. I must say that I don't spend that much time here any more. I keep a blog here and stop by once a week. Just not enough time now.

    That is fabulous! I didn't think you were so heavy. Wonderful! And congratulations on graduation. It sounds like things are really good with you. Hope your children are doing great also. If you want to know what's been going on with me, I'm going to provide a list of several of my blogs from the past three months. You will see my wife and I are in the middle of an adoption, possibly the best thing in our lives. Here read what you can when you have time. I think it makes for good reading.
