Kate Middleton gives birth to baby boy

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a son, who will be the Prince of Cambridge
Al Picozzi's insight:

So what is the big hype about the birth of a boy into the British Monarchy that wields no real political power?  Why do we as Americans care?  Tradition and culture.  To be British is to support the Monarchy.  It is part of British beliefs and way of life to support the Monarchy as the British people have done for hundreds of years.  It is ingrained.  Even though there is no real political power the people for the most part still support the Royal Family.  As for us Americans, it is also part of our culture.  We started off as colonies in the British Empire and were so since the founding of Jamestown in 1603 unit the end of the American Revolution in 1783.  We still are interested in what happens there as we had are beginnings in Great Britain.

Al Picozzi's insight:

The feast in the Knightsville section of Cranston start Wednesday 7/17/13.  Always has been a part of my life and part of my culture that I am passing on to my children.  It is important to me for them to know where they came from, that traditions and culture are important.  Its a great time, that is run by St. Mary's Church in Cranston, to be with family, friends and to have some great food.  This feast is run at about the same time as the original feast in Itri, Italy where many of the locals in Cranston can trace their family heritage. See http://trecancelle.wordpress.com/2009/07/26/feast-of-la-madonna-della-civita-itri-part-one/ for more info on the feast in Itri.
