New Look.

This was done as part of a process to get the tags field in on the lower right. I have accumulated a lot of little quotes from classical authors over the course of making this blog, but can't easily go back and find them, so the tag feature is needed. Hopefully some others may find this useful, although I have avoid tagging most of my rants - for obvious reasons.

The font size of this post isn't so small. That I like.

Very interesting correlation that you've found. I've often wondered how much interaction, if any, Roman writers- such as Tacitus- had with early Christians.

Looney said...

Ronifer, that is a good question. Tacitus probably had some direct interaction due to some of his quotes, but Suetonius seems to be fuzzier on things. Marcus Aurelius wrote later and has a lot to say, but I haven't gotten to his book yet. There is much more reading for me to do and the next book I picked up was from Seneca - who is rumored to have had some interaction with Christians. My project has been to read the books for myself and try to decide.

Are you a trail runner? I also noticed you seem to take an interest in T.E. Lawrence like I have ...

I like the new look, I was going to say it needs a couple of more links to two blogs I know and love but I see you have linked one of them by creative rendition (I love it! LOL)

Have you thought of engineering makeovers?

Looney said...

LS, I have made one correction, but the other correction was goes to a "by invitation only" link. Oh, what must be lurking behind the link ...

Not quite sure what an engineering makeover would look like ... perhaps a listing of machine code. Maybe some blue prints of hundred year old ships.

LOL
Oh my Creation on the Blade has gone to “Bleeding Creation” and Life on the Blade has gone to “Bleeing Life”!! LOL

And to think I don’t own any….Bleeing Bleeing

I think some blueprints for some ancient structures and/or vessels would be a nice touch…

I keep playing around with my headers; I always want to crowd it (like my words) but end up minimizing as it usually works better, less is more…

Looney said...

Oooop! I always must remind myself that I went into engineering because I was sloppy with reeding and speling.

LOL

I can’t say anything as my typos are far to noommeroos….
