    Yes, but bar soaps are a different story…

    Oh boy, I’m sold on rugby now! How could one resist? Glad you’ve found The Sneeze — that entire page about “Steve, don’t eat it,” makes me laugh and cringe all at once.

    Jessica: Well, the Rugby World Cup starts here pretty soon. I can blow up the Aerobed.

    How soon can you get here?

    Most of the hand sanitizers, particularly Purell, are alcohol based and do not contain antibiotics. Studies have been done in hospitals that show they are more effective to use than soap and water.

    OMG, the minute I read a reference to rugby on yuor site I KNEW Dieux de Stade cudl not be far behind. I bought the 2005 calendar for a friend (found it at a Carrefour near Nice) and I though he might die of a heart attack brought on by sheer excitement.

    Feeling a little fluished now and might have a little lie-down.

    Don’t lie down quite yet…

    There’s been a few documentaries depicting the making of those calendars with rugby and football players shown on television here.

    One particularly educational one is this one (…and people still keep asking me why I live here…)

    Ciao David,
    My girlfriend and I have been reading your blog for some time now and are enjoying it a lot. We are from the US but are now living in Genova, Italy.

    We used a lot of your recommendations for our trip to Paris last week, especially Ble Sucre and the falafel place in La Marais (amazing!).

    I wanted to comment now because we are currently volunteering through WWOOF Italia on an organic vineyard in Monticello Amiata and are having a wonderful time doing it. We just made grappa from the early pinot nero harvest and will be picking the Sangiovese this Saturday. I linked to my blog if you (or your readers) would like to learn more.
