Our Jana is having too much Il Volo Fun!  First…

Il Volo Christmas gathering of Detroit gals!  It’s growing!!   We met at the local Olive Garden.  Our next party planned is Gianluca’s birthday – Feb 11!  I’m still stuffed to the tips of my blonde and gray hairs!  Lol!  We all think it’s still pretty amazing how we never would have met, had it not been for the guys, and all the others, as well!  The old saying that strangers are friends we just haven’t met yet, certainly rings true with Il Volo fans!

 And truly much to my dismay, I think I got nominated as the ring leader!  Lol!

Then as a “permanent” phone bank volunteer for Detroit PBS she gets to meet GIADA…

 Here is picture of Giada and me and Chris in the far background on the top row of the volunteers!  They took lots of pictures and her husband was there also!

Grande Amore!

See?  Way too much fun!  Plus, I can’t resist printing this “mirror image” photo Jana sent me a while back.  Sweet, even if it is she and Ignazio. ~M

    1. HI Jana, Chris and Ginny, good to see you again having fun. Hope you kept an eye on Ginny, Jana. You know how she likes to flirt with guys in restaurants! The Minnesota girls are planning a winter Il Volo hoot if the snow doesn’t get in our way. Hope to see you in Vegas.

      1. Yes time is sure flying! At airport at McDonald’s and sitting under a picture of Venice! Lol
        Ciao. Boarding in about an hour.

  2. Please join us today in wishing a very Happy Birthday to Pope Francis who was Born on December 17, 1936 (age 79) God Bless him ♥ xo Buon Compleanno Papa ! Auguri !
    Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born in Flores, a barrio of Buenos Aires. He was the eldest of five children of Mario José Bergoglio, an Italian immigrant accountant born in Portacomaro (Province of Asti) in Italy’s Piedmont region, and his wife Regina María Sívori, a housewife born in Buenos Aires to a family of northern Italian (Piedmontese-Genoese) origin. Mario José’s family left Italy in 1929, to escape the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. His daughter María Elena confirmed that their emigration was not caused by economic reasons. She is the Pope’s only living sibling. His brother Alberto died in June 2010.

  3. Isn’t it amazing how our ears are trained to recognize the Il Volo boys voices. I heard Ignazio start a Christmas carol on a radio station I have only heard them once AM740 while I was driving today. The Christmas carol was “Oh Holy Night” sung as only they can. That made the rest of my day
