Most of you may have noticed that Google is currently testing a system for setting a time and date to have a post published. I've used it for a few things in the past week and it seems to work out just fine. But for the rest of the week I'm going to give it a real try-out.
Laurent and I are heading out to Venice tomorrow - or at least I hope we are as he seems to be coming down with the flu. We're finally getting to attend a performance at the restored La Fenice Opera House - the last time we were in Venice, back in 2000, it was still under construction after the devestating fire. And I'm hoping we'll be able to attend the Patriarchal High Mass in honour of San Marco on the 25th before we head off to Vincenza for the rest of the weekend. Plus we've made dinner reservations at Osteria Oliva Nera - our friend Mark recommended it and when I checked the website I realized we had eaten there ten years ago. I had forgotten the name and strangely had asked Laurent a few days before if he remembered it - and eccola two days later Mark mentions it.
I've set publishing dates and times on a few things - including this post which is scheduled to go up at 2300 Rome time. We'll see how it works.
