Happy Columbus Day!

What a beauty of a day! Especially lucky weather for the Columbus Day parade that is marching down 5th Avenue in NYC at the moment. A proud day for Italian Americans to celebrate their heritage. It just so happens that the guy who discovered the Americas happened to be an Italian from Spain. So a day also to recognize all who come here to be Americans and to celebrate this great country. My great-grandparents came here from Italy over a hundred years ago and with them the dream of a good life. It was also very important for them to become Americans first while still embracing their Italian culture. I am very proud of them and all of the Italians who immigrated here and made a successful and wonderful life for themselves and future generations!

Now Ozzie being an English Bulldog is confused by all the hub -bub! Though I am sure if I said the word "pizza" he would come running! I think I will make some good ole fashion spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight in celebration. I am sure Ozzie will approve!

I want to leave you with three Italian teenage tenors who's singing is amazing. If there were any justice in show business Justin Bieber would be shining their shoes!
