I like that you are the British/Europe connection through Mum, so as to keep us grounded here in the USA. A little reality check with a British accent! Well, I love your blog and can't wait to read more. Plus, I took a look at your vineyard photos. OMG! So yummy. Can I have your luxurious life? Why do Iive in NY again?


Now there's a whole lot to be said for life in the big apple, Jennifer - all that lovely shopping, theater, museums, great restaurants, real brick buildings, closer to England. I could have been happy there if that's where I'd landed, fresh off the boat! Check out Jennifer's fab Morte di Fame blog at: http://mortadifame.blogspot.com/
But be warned, there's another coastal Rocco involved!


Great post Mrs. R but being the patriotic Brit that I am I have to mention that World War 2 didn't end until May of 1945.


Well, yes, 1939-1945 was drummed into our permanent memory of high school history, as th eofficial end of the war, but D Day celebrations marking June 1944 represent the victory.


According to the BBC, Britain decided not to celebrate the 65th anniversary as they did for the 60th, but that doesn't mean that the Queen isn't prepared to go to the ceremony in France. Apparently the French haven't invited her and Gordon Brown insists that it's not his place to invite the British royal family to an event held by the French, so it's stalemate....
