What am I doing here....

Well, I realized I haven't done any "formal" introduction of me or what my purpose is here.
I am an Italian guy that has lived in Texas for the last .... oh, well let's say 17 and some years.
I am happily married and have 4 fantastic kids, and you will see them around here, on the blog.
Working with technology and IT has been my "gig" for a long time, I love books, photography (need a new camera!) and spending time with my family.

This blog wants to be a place where I rant and rave about Italy, US, life in either one or both, my kids, cooking, and all things that happen to cross my mind. I am absolutely new to the blogosphere, so be patient. You could see changes, for I do not adapt easily to routine and boredom, and like to "tweak" things that often should be left alone... In a small bar in Muggia, once I spotted a sign that could be the motto for my blog. Off course I was carrying my cheapo camera and "click", here it is:

You can loosely translate it like this: "Here nothing works, but we are all so nice"
Although, I am not sure "nice" is a fitting translation for "simpatici" ?
Help anyone ? ( Rob?)

Ciao !

se mi avessi chiesto un aiuto per la traduzione in dialetto non avrei avuto dubbi: "cocoli", ma in inglese non saprei.... "likeable"?
