Ama, Reading

One of my "people reading" tribe:
Rosaria De Nicola, my Sicilian grandmother, sometime in the 1950s, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Here she is as a young woman in Milwaukee, with the first three of her ten children.

And here are her two biscotti recipes (SOS = almond & butter, and tu tus = chocolate & spice).

I see the family resemblance (can't miss it, really) in the linked picture.

And I can't help but think of this quote from Princess Bride at any mention of "Sicilian"....

"Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line."

I shall keep this in mind in case we are ever leaders of different countries, (possible, but not likely).

Captcha: grameci---sounds vaguely Italian. I grow more and more suspicious of Captcha.

Vizzini fell over dead shortly after delivering this line, right?
But I do agree with his other advice: "Never fight a land war in Asia."

Haha! Touché.
