Pasta Strike in Italy

Due to the increase in wheat cost, pasta has increased in cost by 20% in some cases.  As a result, today is designated as the day not to purchase pasta in Italy.  The demand for wheat has increased, due to the recent emergence of bio-fuels.  Ciao. 

Beckham Scores!

Just returned from my first LA Galaxy game; August 15.  Jason and I attended the game, in addition to Paul and his co-workers.  Beckham played today and was the team captain.  He scored the first goal, a beautiful penalty shot that curved directly into the goal, a very sweet sight indeed.  Beckham’s pass to Donovan resulted in another goal.  Final Score:  LA Galaxy: 2  DC United: 0
