We get a lot of wild deer roaming the streets where I live but very rarely see them in daylight (except for the captive ones in the parks). This advert was filmed a few streets away from me

Forgot to mention, they changed the names of the roads too when they filmed it. A few days ago we even had a wild deer wandering around the little field round the corner from me. I hope it was just lost and not that they are thinking of moving home because it's where I take the hound for a walk and he does get rather excited at the sight of deer since he saw that one.

I am half Italian and those festival photos reminded me of such religious celebrations in Italy! It's a strange sight to see the Madonna, heavily laden in gold jewellery, held up by supporters as they parade down the main street.....with police either side....er, just for good measure, you understand! :ohmy: :okay: :unsure: :headshake:

The food often boasts a hog roast, lupini (which I love) - large, yellow, salted beans and fresh coconut slices amongst other delights.

Oh and Italian fireworks! Wow! Amazing!!

I must confess I'm not a fan of this festivals, also because I think a lot of them in America are mostly for turists and too much folcloristics and don't represent the real Italia. Anyway, the real festival with Madonna, etc., are typical of the South of Italy, particularly in small cities. They are beauty and mostly confident.

Nope, not for tourists. Just an excuse for a party in America. We have festivals or celebrations for everything.

From my mother's side. She was born in San Frosinone, near Monte Casino....a beautiful, small village inbetween the mountains. She bought a flat there (after moving to UK - my dad was British).
Where exactly is San Frosinone? I worked in the city of Frosinone for three years. Lived in a small village on the outskirts called Ticchiena

It is both sincerely religious and a party for the locals and tourists at the same time. It raises money for the local church as well as being a big tourist attraction.

Thinking of your user name....what is your relationship to lobster? Love them I guess? Ah, of course - Canada is famous for them! Guess they must be cheaper there then over here in UK? (We get frozen lobster tails from Maine!)

My name is Roch(pronounced Rock) It's a French Canadian name...I just wanted to link my name with a food item so I came up with Rocklobster..a B52's tune, also..
Lobsters are still quite expensive here also..it's a supply and demand thing..I think many of them are shipped to Europe and Asia. I'll eat one or two a year...

Sounds similar to UK fishing, i.e. here in UK we ship a lot of what is caught to Europe...great shame - indicating most people having limited palates.
