After a blogging break of a month we're back and with a lot of catch-up posts to do. First, in salute of what must be the most melodic language in the world, here is a clip of Riccardo Patrese driving his wife around a circuit...... and what is there not to love about those Italian girls?

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence; Seven Pillars of Wisdom

This is considered a major social breakthrough, because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.
