La Festa
Il 2 dicembre, Mimmo e Betty Della Penna hanno ospitato più di 40 membri del club Fior d'Italia.
Come sempre la loro accoglienza ha reso la festa una memorabile chiusura dell'anno. Conversazione, cibo e bevanda, erano parte di un’atmosfera socievole, elegante e amichevole.
"Villa Daniela", com’ è battezzata la loro dimora, era decorata al di fuori di una schiera di luci natalizie, e dentro di ben due magnifici alberi di Natale e dettagli particolari della stagione festiva.
Inoltre la cena veramente deliziosa, provvista da tutti i partecipanti, il programma è stato limitato diversi brindisi con brevi rapporti di viaggi fatti da alcuni partecipanti (vedi "Members On The Go).
Un grande grazie a Betty e Mimmo per la calorosa accoglienza e tutto il lavoro che hanno fatto per il nostro club.

L'anno scorso Giuseppe aveva parlato della Befana e la maniera nella quale e' festeggiata questa ricorrenza in Italia ed altri paesi. Questà anno è stata Betty a provvedere la storiella, o meglio la canzone, di Natale. Per vederla ed ascoltarla, premete qui

Members on the Go
Francesca, Tim and baby Anna are spending the holidays between England and Italy.

Olga and Giuseppe will spend the holidays with Olga's family in Argentina.

Bill and Dianne Have completed a tour of Vietnam.
"Astonishingly true", they say "Vietnamese are so accepting of Americans and really separate you as an individual from the past. Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and and Dalot and the areas around them were especially interesting and offer telling insights to the past and present of the country. If you ever go, make sure you take your time and make the effort to interact with the people. It will be a much richer and important experience than just the lovely sights (Of which there are so many too!!!). If anyone wants to talk more with us about Vietnam, we'll see you at a festa or email us or call. We're in the phone book in Morro Bay." Some scenes from their trip:

L'Angolo Umoristico
Secret to a long lasting marriage
With couples celebrating their 50th anniversary at the church's marriage marathon, the minister asked Brother Ralph to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he managed to live with the same woman all these years.
The husband told the audience, "Well, I treated her with respect, spent money on her, but mostly I took her traveling on special occasions; for example, "for our 25th anniversary, I took her to Beijing, China."
The satisfied minister then said, "What a terrific example you are to all husbands, Ralph. Please tell the audience what you're going to do for your wife on your upcoming 50th anniversary?" Ralph replied: "I'm going to go get her."
