Cheese & Pictures

The other evening, I came accross some “Truffle Infused Cheese”  and could not resist the temptation to purchase it..

I was first introduced to Truffles while visiting the most beautiful place I have ever been… Orvieto, Italy.  I was the chairman of the Aiken Downtown Development Association at the time and we have a “sister city” relationship with Orvieto.  A group of us went over for two weeks to learn about their way of life.

If you ever get the opportunity to travel that way, call Bill Steiner to help set up the trip.

The first bite  of the cheese took me back tweleve years to that visit.  Here are two of my favorite pictures from that visit.

Everywhere one looked, there was a surprise.


Our streets should be so pretty, clean and safe.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Almost everyone there speaks “English” and it is truly a walk back in time. I also visited Siena, Pisa, Grosetto, Spoletto and Rome (did the “Catholic thing”). It really was magical. It is also manly…Salami and cheese for breakfast.
