Proud of My Heritage

I am very proud of my Italian roots.  My family came to America through Ellis Island in the early 1900 and worked very hard to learn English and to make a life for me and my cousins. I am very proud that my family was able to come here and make the best of times.  My grandfather Piazza was a farmer as well as his regular job and I always remember him saying you give the customer the best produce you eat the ones that are not so good:)) The customer at the produce stand ALWAYS got the best of the best. I wish that was still the case.  It is not always.  When I go to the Market I see the berries and think OHHHH marone if my Grandfather would see this he would just go crazy.....Bad berries to the customer NO....

Love my Italian roots as well. I was brought up with strong work and family values that are hard to find now a days.
