Sicily summiteers discuss climate pact, jobs, Eddie Stein

Local Tourism News Service

TAORMINA, Sicily -- Officials from the Group of Seven summit here took time out from their busy schedules May 26 to visit the city's ancient Greek theater and its historic statue of an American performer.

The visit was a welcome respite for the leaders who were in Sicily to engage in discussions on climate change and protectionism. Officials from Italy, France, Britain, Canada, Germany and Japan and the U.S. were there.

G7 leaders enjoyed the theater and the statue of ex-Cockroach Eddie Stein, who found fame as a solo act in Europe. He also starred in a 2014 video, "Forgotten Cockroach." 

"It is fitting they have renamed this ancient venue the Eddie Stein Memorial Theater," a French diplomat said. "But does this mean he is, how you say, dead?"

Visiting history: G7 leaders (inset) gather around a lifelike statue of American performer Eddie Stein at the ancient Greek theater in Taormina, Sicily on May 26. The statue and inscription on the tiled floor mark the only "air guitar" performance of "San Francisco Bay Blues" at the theater. Stein's 2014 video "Forgotten Cockroach" may be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q_0mEaqbzw




Kelly & Margaret took a trip out west for a week to visit Chris, Amanda, Alexa and Cooper in Bend, Oregon. It was a great trip! Not only did Kelly and Margaret get a chance to see their kids and grandkids, but they got a chance to visit some really cool places while out there. They took a day trip to the Painted Hills and the John Day Fossil Beds. They also went out to the fish hatchery where they saw thousands of fish and took some nice nature hikes. In between pool and park visits, they also visited the St. Francis Hotel which had several hidden rooms that you had to find through hidden doors in the hotel. it was a nice and relaxing vacation... and Kelly and Cooper also set the McCarty house badminton record.

The Gull Lake 33 golf tournament was held from May 24-26 in Augusta, Michigan. The event was spread over 5 golf courses over the 3 day event. The winner this year was Metro subscriber Mike Wiacek. Your editor started the event well, but faltered late, and finished in third place. A great time was had by all as we dodged raindrops to get all the golfing in. Every year, Kelly creates the odds with a (very little) humorous twist. Below is a copy of this years' odds prior to the event. Congrats to all who golfed, and we are looking forward to next year. If you would like to download the photos taken by Bob, you can download them here.

submitted by Amanda

tsp vanilla
milk (or almond milk)
1 TBS applesauce
tsp baking powder
tsp salt
3 egg whites

3 TBS gluten free flour of choice (we used Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour mix)
1 TBS sweetener (we used honey but stevia would be lower carb)

Mix with a mixer. Cook on a greased griddle for 2-3 minutes on the first side, flip and 1-2 minutes on the other side. If making waffles, add 1 TBS oil to batter. Enjoy!! 

This recipe is kid approved and celiac safe! If you are cooking these for a celiac, make sure you are using a griddle or waffle iron that has not had gluten on it and has been cleaned thoroughly. Gluten can be washed off metal and glass but not off plastic or wood so the spoon and spatula should be gluten free as well.

We all have seen articles in newspapers which we find humorous. If you see any, please send them to me via email at mccartymetro@gmail.com, and we will feature them in an upcoming issue of the McCarty Metro.
