Who Killed Homer

New mailinglist?

I have Pharr's book, the wish to read Homer, but I can't seem to get started all on my own. Well, I got started, but couldn't keep it up.

Is there anyone who would like to start a new mailinglist with me, be it one without expert guidance, but just to support one another and keep going? We could always post the questions here, that we can't figure out ourselves.

Let me know!

Pope on pogo stick


This is crazy! :lol: A cartoon. In the Vatican. The pope on a pogo stick. Do you remember that Vatican TV promo story I wrote about the pope and his spike (veru).

of sentences

Morte tyranni ferocis nuntiata, quisque se ad oratorem potentissimum magna spe vertit.
I translated as The death of the fierce tyrant has been announced, and each person turns himself with great hope to the most powerful speaker.

two Thetas

I have run across two ways of writing a Theta in the same piece.

College Football

Any college football fans here? I follow the University of Tennessee. "My blood runneth orange" is the way we say it here. I have been a UT fan for as long as I can remember. I live about 100 miles east of Knoxville and if you know anything about Tennessee, there is only one team we follow here. The Titans wish they had the following that UT has.

What team do you follow and why? ...
