How to kill a succulent

As the holiday season approaches, I thought why not incorporate plants with the decor.  Since ,  I have not been able to keep any plants alive from bamboo to orchids, I thought succulents are the best way to go. I purchased the succulents from Lowe's and bought glass containers and assembled the whole thing . I think they look really nice , but one of them became a victim to my overwatering tendencies. 
Obviously , havent watered them since, now waiting to see if it will revive.  On the weather front , it's raining.
I'm watching the rain as I sip my cardamom tea.

Italian Class

I love anything and everything about France and French. My dream is to live there someday whether in Paris or South of France. I took the language classes ,read all the travel related  books and drank all the wine. I still can't get enough of that country. So imagine my surprise , when I took an Italian language class and loved it.  Yes , more than French. I love the Italian accent, the words, my professor... I visited Italy in August 2007. Although it was very hot and crowded, I didn't realize how much I liked there until this class. When we're learning the words gelati, biscotti, panini, I miss Italy. Hope to return there soon !!!
