    I live in a new subdivision. They are just finishing up Phase I and opening up Phase II so there is still a lot of construction going on. That stuff just seems to collect in large puddles throughout the neighborhood, especially after a hard rain.

    The problem is that it is impossible to separate from water, and as you describe, when it runs off and collects somewhere, it just gets concentrated before seeping into the groundwater.

    Eventually it winds up in the water supply. Similar to estrogen, hydroxylic acid, and major antibiotics, scientists can now easily detect it in all major municipal water reservoirs. The question is what to do about it. It's a problem that is only getting worse every day.

    I miss living in Italy. We were out in Pinetamare, in the 1980's when the fun stuff was going on. I was in high school, so our shenanigans were endless. Never try to haunt the Flavian Amphitheater wearing zinc oxide and sheets stolen from the Marine Barracks. The stenciling on the sheets made it easy to figure out who the dumb kids were.

    The sandwiches at the local Sulumeria were always the best, fresh cheese, meat without nitrates, fresh baked rolls. So good. Of course, I turned into a pizza napoletana snob. Anywhere we go, I find all the pizza places that make it and check them out, it's an obsession. I always went for the gelato and the ice pops. I had a really hard time adjusting to all the preservatives in American food when we came back stateside. I hated peanut butter, thought Wonder bread was too sweet and disgusting, flat out refused to eat the pasta sauce in the grocery stores, could not get past bread being edible three days later. Three day old bread in Italy was a deadly weapon.

    I went to Tutti-Frutti in Annapolis yesterday and had a few samples of their frozen yogurt. The Mango was superb. A hit among Mids, I am told.

    OMG. Are they injured? Did they sprain something?

    LOL my kids like frozen yogurt. It’s ok. I prefer ice cream. :)

    I had to laugh at this one...I presume it was posted on Good Friday. Friday AM my secretary came in, and when I told her about all the things I wanted to get done, she informed me that our staff was off at noon. I obviously didn't get the word....

    My usual daily avalanche of email abruptly stopped, no Skype meetings were scheduled, no one was available on Skype IM, and I finally got a clue. I immediately shut down the laptop, looked outside at the spring day, fired up the Stingray and took it out for exercise via the Annapolis Ice Cream Company and other important errands.

    Trader Joe's vanilla with fudge chips is heavenly! I always try to share this flavor because it is so good!

    I can’t stand the fake stuff, loaded with chemicals you can’t pronounce. I am very lucky to have a small start-up near me that makes small batches of the most decadent ice cream on the planet, made from scratch with premium ingredients. Chocolate turtle with homemade caramel, wild blueberry with lemon curd, pecan pie ice cream that has a brown sugar ice cream, homemade pie crust, toasted pecans and a swirl of that gooey buttery pecan pie filling. Absolutely amazing. He posts the flavor of the week on Facebook and if you’re fast enough you can secure a pint before they’re all gone. I can’t wait until his store opens!

    Update: The fat free half and half remains unopened in the frig. Plot twist.....I found heavy whipping cream left over from an Easter culinary project and can I say coffee has never been better. Now I am not sure I can even enjoy real half and half....modern day struggles:)

    I'm in SC, but my husband is from Texas, and he's picky about his ice cream! Thank goodness it's carried in most of our grocery stores, and Walmart!
