For a mere $6365 you can be cruising in ultimate style, covered with the Gucci logo all over, per certo! The bell is even engraved with the Gucci logo ( i wonder if that is available on it's own?)...but what I really like is the sound of the guccissima leather handlebar, seat, and seat pack that it comes with. I could just see myself on the streets of Roma, having the time of my life...until I needed a rest stop...I think you need a bodyguard with this to keep an eye on it, a bike lock simply will not suffice!
Chocolate brown for me per favore...

To all of you moms out there...
A few excerpts from "Mother Nurture," Life Lessons from the Mothers of America's Best and Brightest, by Stephanie Hirsch...
"We learn from difficulties and obstacles. If you always spoil your children, you will weaken their character, instead of strengthening it.
Nena Thurman, mother of Uma Thurman
"Never lose your inner child"
Leah Adler, mother of Steven Spielberg
"Children may not always seem to do what you say, but they always seem to imitate what you do"
Helene Shalotsky, mother of Dr. Rubi Ludwig
" Children have to have some boundaries, but do not knock the poetry out of the soul"
Gloria Allred. mother of Lisa Bloom
"If you shelter your children, you don't really do them any favors"
Linda Armstrong Kelly, mother of Lance Armstrong
" You can't box your children in. If they don't follow the road you had planned for them in your head, get yourself a new map and buckle up for an unpredictable, sometimes terrifying, and hopefully wonderful journey."
Nancy Golden, mother of Nate Berkus
" I consider myself a lighthouse. My light is always on, a guiding force."
Barbara Taylor, mother to Nikki Taylor
"If you suffocate children, they tend to keep secrets."
Judy Slater, mother of Kelly Slater
"If you want respect from your children, you have to respect them. If you have love from your children, you have to love them."
Sophie Florio, mother of Tom and Steve Florio
Have a wonderful day! I myself am having an interesting Mother's Day... weeks of recurring Strep throat in the house that crescendoed last night with the entire house up sick. All I can say is, if you think you can't, when you are a Mom you know you can.
Cheers to all of you Moms out there that don't stop!
The lovely piece of art above is by the Etsy artist Amber Alexander...stop by to see more of her work here.

I was a little late in the game watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Show that was on TV here in the US, but I taped them, and watched them all last week with the super picky eaters that are my sons. I am in awe of the work he is doing. And he is not even from the US, but is working his tail off here. It was shocking to hear that this is the first generation that will not live as long as their parents, all due to the bad food that is being fed to them. My boys eat good quality food, but are extremely picky, so I was very excited when they agreed to follow Jamie's lead this week and make their own omelets from his recipe, and then post a picture on his Facebook Fan Page. They loved them...and I was in shock! I can't wait to see what recipe he puts out next week.
If you haven't yet, please take a moment to visit his site at www.jamiesfoodrevolution.com and sign his petition to get healthier foods in our childrens schools!
