We have a JACOPERA birthday today! The “J” in JACOPERA, our mezzo-soprano, and our “IT” department, is celebrating her birthday!! Ana and I are sorry we can’t be with you, but we KNOW you are having a posh celebration as you frolic around Milan. One year older, another year being fabulous and a DIVA. I’m currently at a family gathering in Massachusetts, thinking of you while I sip Chardonnay from California (your home state) and eat Eggplant Parmesan (an Italian dish even though I’m with the Irish side of the family). I’m sending you a “cheers” and a “salute” from across the Atlantic – see you soon and have an amazing day, Diva!! Tanti auguri, bella!
