Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 22, 2011 A Memorable Easter by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari With all the talk about the upcoming royal wedding we began rummaging through old travel brochures looking for one in particular, it was of the Cotswolds in England, a place that we spent a won- derful Easter just 15 years ago. An English friend phoned us and in the course of our conversation suggested that we spend Easter together with she and her family. We had never been away from home at Easter so at first the idea put us off, but with a bit more thought and a sec- ond call from our friend, and Mom reminding us that she had never been to England, we decided to go; two weeks later we were on our way, the trip became one of the most memorable experiences we ever had as a family. We arrived on the Satur- day before Easter, after checking into our hotel and notifying our friends that we had arrived; we went to din- ner and decided to attend Easter Vigil Mass at Westminster Cathedral, which is not to be confused with Westminster Abbey. Cardinal Basil Hume was the celebrant. He gave a memorable homily, one that resonates even till today. He had a gift of putting into words our need for reaching out to God and that we live in hopeful trust knowing that God is near.. He then lit the Paschal candle, the flame from the candle was passed one to the other till it filled the cathe- dral which was in darkness; it was a particularly beauti- ful ceremony that is vividly remembered though we at- tended it more than fifteen years ago. The following day we met -up with our friends who were determined to make our Eas- ter experience in England the most memorable of our lives. We drove out to a town by the name of Broadway in the Cotswold's, a range of hills in west central England. jluguri di Buona Pasqua CENTRO ATTIVITA SCOLASTICHE ITALIANE C.A.S.IT. INC.

CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD 59 UNaON SQUARE, SurrE 206, SOMERVILLE, MA 02143 OFFICE 617.623.0532 www.casit.org We arrived in mid-afternoon at an Inn evidently well known for its charm and ambiance, it was the type of place that seemed to grow out of the ground it stood on, so perfectly was it wed to its site. It was built of Cotswold stone, a type of stone indig- enous to the area that has a gold cast about it, a detail that helps give the Cotswolds its charm and beauty. We ate in a dining room with walls covered in dark red tapes- tries. Stuffed heads of game animals jetted out from the walls just beneath the rafters. There were Coats of Arms on the walls, the ori- gins of which made for light conversation and a garden could be seen through large picture windows that sloped down toward a stream. Though the food was good, it was hardly what the day was about. We were with old friends, friends we had not seen in years. We talked and reminisced and caught up with the lives of our re- spective families as the sun gradually set over that de- lightful area of England. We commented on the fact that up till then, we had always spent our holidays with fam- ily, it was at that point that we saw how close our friend- ship was and that in a very real way, good friends are part of one's extended family; a realization that made our Easter in England one of the most memorable of our lives. ALL THAT ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZazzo KOSMEA ROSE HIP OIL-- Nature's Answer for Anti-aging~ Ciao Bella, Beautiful skin is not only inherited, but, when it is, it should be treated like one of life's prizes. Naturally, aging of the skin differs dramatically due to genes, ethnicity, diet, stress and care. I am amazed when I run into a classmate from high school. Wow some have not aged well at all. What have they done to themselves! I only remember these creamy, ivory skin gals and some olive complexion gals and wonder how their skin has taken on a 10-20 year fast forward. After some brief, "What's new?" talk I can understand the deep crow's feet and sagging wrinkles! Drug- store products of inferior quality! Come on ladies; get on board with a professional all natural skincare. Do some homework. Find a valued professional in the field and start plumping up your skin. It is never too late as my Mom would always say. She was always on the hunt for the best moisturizing soap, concealer and skin care.
