As safe and sound as we ever were.

I've had quite a lot of emails and a couple of phone calls about the earthquake that shook central Italy today.  Thanks for all the good wishes.  We are fine. I don't think Florence even felt the quake. I wish I could say the same for those in L'Aquila. L'Aquila, where the epicenter was, is about 100 miles SE of Florence.  

We were actually in Venice today.  Which was glorious, other than a touch of food poisoning.  Anyway, I'll catch up with that tomorrow.  

Thanks again.


  1. I know I speak for many to hear that you are all okay. Thanks for posting and take care!

  2. Phew. Janice, Anja and I were thinking of you this morning! Glad to hear you're all okay.

  3. Venice & food poisoning. Why am I not surprised? It is really, really hard to get a decent meal there, but I'm sorry to hear it was so easy to get a sickening meal.


  4. Is it possible to have a little touch of food poisoning? Surely it is all or nothing??? Glad you are ok though though my thoughts go to all those in L'Aquila

  5. Our whole family will be feeling better when they hear your well. RFWest
