This is a pre-school in Italy, designed by architect Mario Cucinella. A couple of schools were destroyed in an earthquake and were rebuilt as single one with the environment in mind. I think it looks fantastic and I would love to be three years old again, in Guastalla!

My niece Lolô found this recipe in the NY Times and it works a treat! I made two loaves so far, a boring but nice gluten free for me and a better looking regular white one for Peter. It's very satisfying to make delicious bread at home!

A college student was taking a course in ornithology, the study of birds. The night before the biggest test of the semester, he spent all night studying. He had the textbook nearly memorized. He knew his class notes backward and forward. He was ready.
The morning of the test, he entered the auditorium and took a seat in the front row. On the table in the front was a row of ten stuffed birds. Each bird had a sack covering its body, and only the legs were showing. When class started, the professor announced that the students were to identify each bird by looking at its legs and give its common name, species, habitat, mating habits, etc.
Finally he reached his boiling point. He stood up, marched up to the professor's desk, crumpled up his exam paper and threw it on the desk. "What a ridiculous test!" he told the professor. "How could anyone tell the difference between these birds by looking at their legs? This exam is the biggest rip-off I've ever seen!"
With that, he turned and stormed toward the exit. The professor was a bit shocked, and it took him a moment to regain his composure. Then, just as the student was about to walk out the door, the professor shouted out, "Wait a minute, young man, what's your name?"
The furious student turned around, pulled up his pant legs and hollered, "You tell me, professor! You tell me!"
