Video: Mamuthones at Tappas in Mamujada

A short video of the Mamuthones from Mamoiada at the Tappas in Mamujada. My video taking skills aren’t the best and I wasn’t in the best place to capture the Issohadores. Here’s a little sneak peek into the mysterious Mamuthones.

Have you seen the ritual dance from the Mamuthones?

Video – My Sardinian Mom the Artista

My Sardinian Mom is my husbands second cousin, her passion is paint and colour. Her house is a museum of beautiful colourful paintings, each one over the years hung on every wall space available.

She paints landscapes, women and children, fruit and vegetables. She paints on glass, canvas, leather and cotton. Her art is fantastic and truly Sardinian.

Her name is Maria Caterina Satta. She is an extremely humble person who has painted for over sixty years. In the last two years she has finally opened her art for the world to see.

Art critic Andrea Diprè and his team flew to Sardinia late last year to film a fifteen minute segment for his popular show on Italian TV.

Check it out for yourself.

The YouTube clip is in Italian. But you get to see her art!

Stating the Oblivious | How I found YouTube

Early morning runs have given way to cold, wintry mornings in; computer side. With my eight year old crocs keeping my elevens warm and toasty, I forget about the six kay and settle deeply into the wonders of the net.

I skim along the morning headlines and click a YouTube link, probably from one of the major social networks circling the many circles. I watch the cute, quirky, kind of annoying video of whatever and notice, in the upper right hand corner my social Gravatar, I click it in wonder. What’s behind that door?


So, I did it! Five times!

Video – Snowy Sardinia | Feb 6th, 2012

Greetings from snowy Sardinia. The white fluff keeps falling closing schools, buses and offices. Farmers are left in frustration as their crops are frozen, giving rise to a price hike in fresh produce.
