Bellini Valli

Sounds like an instant friendship was made on the slopes Jack :D

Manggy

That sounds like a lot of fun-- not seen snow before. (however, I have been on a glacier on some Swiss mountain.) When I look at those "World's Worst Sports Injuries" TV specials though, it freaks the hell out of me (WELL, what did I expect?). I just saw the Bella Baita site-- that's just absolutely breathtaking.

So, a 1998 desktop? Does it accommodate 5-1/4" disks? You know, with a drive lock that turns 90 degrees? When it boots, it goes BZZT-BZZT-BOINK! I'm surprised it could handle a modem. Maybe for BBS or something.

I want to commend the toddler that took yours and Marla's picture! Hahaha :D I'm thinking it was probably done on a timer on the table surface :)

Donna

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Anytime you want to ski in Colorado give me a call. I don't ski myself; I have a rule about using a major force of nature (gravity) against oneself, but I hear the slopes are fine and not very far away.

Can't wait to hear what you will cook up next.

Pasticcera

What a nice post and what a pleasure to spend a lovely lunch and some sunny alpine skiing together in our backyard. I don't think you give yourself enough credit for your skiing. I would have never been able to ski that well if I only had gone once a year. Just a little update...Fabrizio is the one who grew up skiing when his grandfather use to take him so he could get out of always working at the restaurant. Me, I came late to skiing, moving to Colorado in my 20's and didnt really get the hang of it until I worked for a ski company where you got free lessons. In addition to my bakery duties there, I also fed the kids ski school and instructors, so they looked after me and made sure I learned how to ski,and I will always be grateful for such access to a great sport.
Now we look forward to meeting Ann someday on your travels to this part of the world. We do hope you make it soon!

That looks just awesome -- I love skiing but have never tried it in Europe! I grew up skiing in Vermont every March though. :-)

Marla -- (the one who does not ski -- or bake!)

What a grand trip, beautiful skiing weather and a lovely meet-up -- good of you to wear an "L" shirt in the photo too!

Jack

Bellini - Indeed. We got on fine and I really hope I can get over to see Marla and Fabrizio again with Ann. Ann doesn't ski but I know she'd love the area. And the food. :-)

Manggy - My old 1998 beast can't handle 5-1/4 disks; it can barely start itself up - but when it does I'd say the noise it makes is more like a handful of nails in a coffee grinder.

It actually was a toddler that took the picture. I told him to make sure I looked suave and handsome in it. I guess I should have given him more than a 20 eurocent coin for a tip...

Donna - One day, one day... I would really like to ski in Colorado.

Pasticcera - It was really nice to meet you and Fabrizio and I seriously hope to get out there with Ann.

katy - I love European skiing for many reasons, one of which is the cute mountain restaurants and the lovely carb-n-dairy-heavy food they serve. Just the thing when you're expending all that energy!

Marla - Yes, that "L" shirt is pretty well-travelled. It's always fun to see how many people know what it is even in places far removed from NYC.

You don't bake? Shame on you!

Zenchef

Jack, you don't know how envious i am of you. I wanted to go ski too!
It looks beautiful!
