Why it's my kind of sport

During the Tour of Italy. The Italians have the right attitude: never the wrong time for a little break for pastry!

That looks almost as good as Cake. I know it won't be but if Bettini is getting stuck in- It must be good.

The Italians sure love eating and drinking. When our train from Austria first went into Italy, I figured a guy could make zillions selling house paint there. After a week, I knew you couldn't sell a single gallon. They don't care because they're too busy eating and drinking. bk
