    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    Great fun in Italy in Autumn!

    I am presently conducting 2 tours of Italy and the first one just ended. There were 10 ladies on this tour and Umberto and myself. The second 2 week tour starts in about 1 hour so I do not have a lot of time right now for details, but here's a few.

    I really, really love this country. I am Irish by heritage but I am Mediterranean by nature. My mother took her first trip out of New York State when she was 50 years old for a one week trip to Spain. She did not return for thirteen years!!!! The old apple theory proves itself again.

    I love Italy because of the people, the super incredible history, of course the food, and the enormous pride all Italians take in their culture. They really respect their antiquities.

    The first tour was for 14 days, and the first 2 days were in Rome, visiting the Vatican and other sights. Then 5 days in Lerici, right below the Cinque Terre on the coast of Northeastern Italy. This is Umberto's home town and where I lived for a year, 2001. Then 3 days in Castellina in Chianti, in between Florence and Siena, smack dab in the heart of Tuscany.

    Of course we all tried a few glasses of the Chianti Classico and continually marvel at how great the food is. I am an Etruscan buff, essentially they pre- dated the Romans and everything you give credit to the Romans for, like Roman numerals, aqueducts, gladiators, etc. etc. were all originally Etruscan. The first 2 kings of Rome were Etruscan as they founded the city. In fact Rome is an Etruscan word. Orvieto was one of the main cities of the Etruscans and we enjoyed 3 days there, then back to Rome. Some of the ladies returned home, and some new ladies joined the tour, including my elder sister, Connie.

    I am sorry I do not have the time for details and new photos but they will be forthcoming in future Newsletters.

    On Going Fun for the Senior Bachelor Group!

    I am trying to respond to activities that the Senior Bachelor group has requested, and not surprisingly, they consist of having fun and travel. My life theme!! The tours I am currently leading now were in response to requests to see the "real Italy." So, too, was the idea for the Panama Canal cruise, a Greek Isle cruise and the event November 9 in Manhattan Beach- described below. Ideally I will plan events and reunions around the country. I appreciate your support as we travel through this Adventure together!

    That's it for now. I'll start to send some pictures back of this amazing country. Here's a few for now!

    Ciao for now,

    A Senior Bachelor Reunion Dinner- November 9th FREE DINNER AND COCKTAILS!!

    I am pleased to announce our next group meeting- sort of a Senior Bachelor Reunion! And the best part- dinner and cocktails are FREE! Everyone is invited. If you met new friends at the Manhattan Beach and Chicago "Meet the Senior Bachelor" Events, then get together again in Manhattan Beach on Thursday, November 9th at the Ayres Hotel. If you missed any of the previous events and want to meet really terrific people who share your interests in travel and adventure, please come on by.

    Bring any of your friends. We are going to have a wonderful, gourmet buffet dinner called "Under the Tuscan Sun" just like we had at the first "Meet the Senior Bachelor Event." And free cocktails will be served until 8:30PM. There will be door prizes too.

    All of this is brought to us free by Crystal Cruises. We'll all get a chance to learn more about their amazing SIX STAR cruises and cuisine and talk to company representatives.

    If you want to stay overnight or make a long weekend of it, Joe and I have arranged with the Ayres Hotel to give you a special rate of $119 per night per room. This is $30 off the regular rate. The Ayres Hotel shuttle is available to take you to all the fun spots in Manhattan Beach.

    So catch up with old friends and meet some new ones. Bring others along to share in the fun. Learn more about a quality cruise line and party the night and weekend away in beautiful Manhattan Beach! As I mentioned above, I will be in Italy at this time but Joe will be the Master of Ceremonies and we both guarantee you will have a great, great time!
