    Hi Michelle, Sara, Jessica, and Cherrye!

    As always, I enjoyed the podcast!

    Thanks for all the links and the funny video. I am amazed that with my limited Italian I know the true meaning of many of those words…lol!

  2. We just go back from a 23 day trip through Cabria and Sicily. My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay at Cherrye’s lovely B & B, Il Cedro in Catanzaro. It was so good to hear her voice again.

    My hat goes off the the people of Calabria who were so helpful and kind. Their acceptance of my self taught Italian and the advice and directions they gave us made our trip so wonderful.

    Love the podcast, and can’t wait for the next episode.
