January 14th, 2013 at 07:05
Haha. This DID make me smile.
January 14th, 2013 at 08:25
Good. Mission accomplished.
January 14th, 2013 at 07:44
I admire your resolve. You weren’t won over easily, Carl. Go for the gold … and the girl.

Like James Bond “You Only Live Twice”. Actually to be grammatically correct that should be titled “You Live Only Twice” (misplaced modifier). Harrumph – and the Brits think they know English.

Nope, no stupid in you Carl. You’re too smart to fall for any scams.

That’s right. Miami is “Scam City” and I am too slick to be fooled by anyone. Well, almost anyone.

Potential for a new novel ?

Trying to pull one over on you. Shame on that pirate!
January 14th, 2013 at 19:47
Buyer beware !
January 14th, 2013 at 21:40
Actually, that head on that body does look a little stupid!
January 15th, 2013 at 00:15
You may not be stupid but you sailed over to have a look-see anyway, didn’t you?
January 15th, 2013 at 05:28
Oh heavens no. The trip was for my sea shell collection only.
January 15th, 2013 at 01:00
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. These cut out pictures are great!
Got scissors only – no photoshop
January 15th, 2013 at 09:58
Bon voyage, Carl! I hope the chocolate is worth the sea travel.
January 15th, 2013 at 11:38
No chocolate – no life.
January 15th, 2013 at 12:12
Don’t tell anyone, but the only way I’d go to the island was if a good pastry was involved. Can’t have everyone knowing my weakness, though.

Italian cuisine is one of the most popular and loved cuisines of the world. No matter how stuffed I am, if you happen to mention a pasta or a gelato, I am sure I can always have an extra space in my stomach created for that. Just like the pasta, pizza and lasagna, Italian desserts are also that popular and quite a treat, I must say. For all those who want to familiarize themselves with these I have an list right here for you. Read on, but just see that your salivary glands stay in check!
List of Italian Desserts
Anisette Cookies – These are traditional Italian cookies flavored with anise extract. You can have them with a lovely frosting on top.
Biscotti – Biscotti or biscotti di Prato are Italian biscuits made with hazelnut and aniseed. They are also available in different flavors of nuts, lemon and also orange rind. The specialty about these biscotti recipes is that they are cooked twice and therefore can be had with wine or coffee.
Cannoli – Next is a Sicilian pastry that consist of tube shaped shells made of pastry dough. The filling inside the shell contains ricotta cheese and succade. The literal meaning of cannoli or cannulicchi is not bigger than a finger. The filling inside just melts in your mouth with a lingering flavor.
Cassata – This is among the traditional desserts from Palermo, Italy. Cassata contains round sponge cake with fruit juice or liqueur and of course no Italian dish is complete without a layer of cheese. Cassata also has a layer of ricotta cheese on it that makes it even more difficult to resist.
Crostata – It is a tart. This tart can be filled with fruits like cherries, peaches or apricots. Another yummy addition to this is pastry cream and ricotta cheese. When topped with fruits this dessert becomes crostata di frutta.
Gelato – It is one of the most the most popular desserts, easy to make and eat as well. The reason behind this is that apart from being sinfully delicious, it does not add on the extra pounds. Gelato is a variant of the traditional ice creams with only 4 to 8 percent butter fat.
Granita – Granita is a Sicilian dessert, made from ice sugar and different flavorings. It can be as fine as sorbet or a little more coarse, but in any case it tastes amazing.
Pandoro – This is a sweet Italian bread made especially during Christmas and New Year. It is served with vanilla scented sugar that resembles the snowy peaks during Christmas.
Pastiera – This is an Italian cake with its origin in Naples. It is a traditional dessert again made with ricotta cheese, pastry cream and eggs.
Semifreddo – This is my favorite Italian dessert which consists of ice cream cakes, custards (semi-frozen) and tarts. The whipped cream topping is mouth-watering!
Sfogliatelle – These are shell shaped pastries which resembles leaves. It is topped with frosting and sugar to give it a perfect look.
Tiramisu – An irresistible rich, creamy dessert. A tiramisu can lift your spirits and take you to a new world of joy! It is a sort of cake made with biscuits and dipped in coffee with a layer of mascarpone and flavored liqueur and cocoa.
Zabaione – It is a dessert made using egg yolks, sugar and wine. It is like a custard which is traditionally served with figs.

lol, Carl! you should definitely do your own comic strip… nice sequencing here.
January 16th, 2013 at 23:05
The strip is a whole different genre. I have experimented and done a few things. But I like to be part of the group that can deliver the art and gag in one single frame. It is a challenge but comes naturally for me. Thanks.
