    Most of those old nursery rhymes arc actually political comments and satire. The ordinary working folk from many, many years ago could not read or write. It suited the church to keep them ignorant. However, they were not stupid and were very aware of what the political leaders were doing. Wandering minstrels in old England used to travel through the villages singing about their exploits. Humpty Dumpty is a classic example of one of these political satirists.

    It seems to me that Gianni is still in love with his deceased wife. Perhaps he will never be interested in another woman.

    There seem to be areas in the USA where Zucchini grow abundantly. I live in South Africa and I was told that Zucchini are difficult to grow here as they have to be hand-pollinated. A man in our local supermarket said that he will pay any price the store charges as he has tried growing them himself. :)
