In Tuskany, we say "Sciacquare i panni in Arno": "To wash clotes in Arno
rever". Maybe, this is incompatible with mixers, toasters, etc.

Anycase, this is only a proverb: we have wash machines, of course. This
proverbial sentence means: "Do resolve your problems, staying within
your family's walls", but I'm not sure, because I'm from Napoli, Neaple,
Nea-polis; yes, i'm napoletano and, when Cristmas do approach, I become
very melanchonical!


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
