Former Elephants Newsflashes: Happy to report that our QB, Arturo Sanchez, has apparently hooked up with a team in England whose QB went down with an injury. He will be there for their last five games. . . sounds strangely familiar.

CB extraordinaire, Larry Atkinson, has returned from the Arena II Maryland Maniacs (LOVE that nickname) and has joined a team in Finland. L.A. continues to rack up his frequent flyer miles this year!

Thursday was a day to hang out at Malibu enjoying the views, researching our upcoming trip and. . .

. . . Reading

It was also the last day of the three day Festa di San Giovanni Battista in ever so close Acitrezza. At about 8:00 a.m. the first of the days skyrocket bomb reports rattled the glass windows to remind us that it was time to get up and watch another round activities.

We resisted the temptation.

At about 11:30 p.m., the Festa decided that if we were not coming down to the Festa, the Festa would come to us with a spectacular 15 minute fireworks display to rival anything of the sort I've ever seen.

We just went out onto Malibu's lower patio and took it all in. If there is one thing I've learned about Sicily in the last two years, it is that they are absolute masters when it comes to fireworks displays!!!
