I do hope a few people will vote! I'd really like to know what your perceptions are and, via the comments, whether I have, in some small way, managed to change any of them. If you have other ideas about Sicily, please let me know about those, too!

That is a nice poll. Of course you are the one who gives us the nice picture of the area.

James Higham said...

Yes, it's changed my perception. Keep up the good work.

WL, not sure what the problems is. I have left comments on your last 3 posts, but they seem to have disappeared. I'll try as other.

I just left a comment but got confused signing in so it might occur twice!

Anyway, what I said first time was that I tried to vote twice to show my before and after views but the poll would only let me vote once, so I was marked down as viewing Sicily as Mafia country and nothing else!

Now I would tick good food and hospitable people (both several times over), as well as beautiful countryside and citrus fruits.

Hi, M. Glad the recipe turned out well for you. Ciao, Jeremy. That answers that, then! Thank you, James. That's encouraging. You make a good point about the poll, Liz. It should let you vote for more than one option but it won't let you have two goes from the same browser on the same day - I think!

It was the mafia, but I have a few different perceptions since reading your blog, the lovely people, food, climate, buildings, etc.

You have done a great job of broadening my knowledge about Sicily, of which knew not much. Thank you.

Lee said...

Hey, Welsh...have a wonderfully Happy New Year...I hope all your dreams come true in 2007! :)

Welshcakes, since my comments are not showing up, I can only assume that I offended you somehow. For that I apologize.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Ellee, thanks. That's good to know. Thank you, too, Colin. I feel encouraged! Hi, Lee. Grazie. I hope all your dreams are realised, too.
Steve, I'm worried. You haven't offended me at all. I haven't rejected any comments. I wonder what can be wrong?

Welshcakes, I feel relieved. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what I had said. Must be a glitch in blogger.

Steve, I'll stop worrying if you will! You're right - it can only be blogger again!
