I spent 2 days in Florence:The first day I was there with The Gambler.

He was quite happy with his Florentine Steak - all 1.2 kg of it.

The second day I went there on my own (our villa was right on the train line that runs between Rome and Florence)

I stumbled upon the indoor market, and also spent some time at an awesome yarn shop. It was actually kind of overwhelming - so much so that I didn't take any pictures of it! (I had visions of one of the ladies working there tossing me out - they looked pretty no nonsense)

When I walked in, I was greeted by the "1 Euro per 100 g" wall.

I got 6 of these - the label indicates that it's "Misto Alpaca"
I also picked up this beauty for 2 Euros.
It's a laceweight, and it looks like I've got alot of it...
...lots and lots of it.

On a totally unrelated note - is anyone else somewhat amused by all the "Election Day" daytime coverage - there's really nothing to report. I haven't seen so many somewhat irrelevant statistics since the last time I watched a baseball game on TV. I guess that's why the Fake Text Message is getting so much press.

I will be interested to see how much difference there is between the exit polls and the actual results are; if there is a significant "Bradley Effect" how much have things really changed?

I love that chandelier thingy.

I'm interested to see if the Bradley effect will be in play too. I can't believe the press is predicting as much as they are--did they learn anything from the 2000 debacle?

I watched the coverage by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert sharing the stage. A lot more entertaining. They actually did a 'fake news' piece, interviewing people on the street about the "Bradley Effect"
