    You.  My wife and have some of the same enthusiasm for Italy..although we won't be moving there.   And I understand your displeasure with America.  There is a sickness here growing in our society.  I'm not sure how it will all end but things don't look good for the middle class.  I fear all that will be left is the 1 percent in walled compounds and the rest will be roasting rat-on-a-stick and defending themselves from roving bands of thugs.  

    I don't know anything about Iceland's finances or much else, but if Europe goes into the toilet it will likely impact other places.  What are your thoughts?

    Best to you.
