Hello Again.

Thought I ought to rededicate myself to this effort, especially since the youngest is pretty reliably sleeping through the night.

Oh, yeah.

One hand on the ground, one hand in space.

Molon Labe "Take them." The reply of Leonidas Rex to the Spartan Empire after they demanded he lay down his arms at Thermopylae, an epithet adopted by the 2nd amendment adherents in the United States.

Tom,

For the record, Leonidas' title was Basileus (Βασιλεύς Λεωνίδας) not Rex, and as a Spartan king he fought the Persian Empire.

Best regards,

Alex

Sorry, I just saw your comment yesterday.

While saying Spartan empire was an egregious brain fart, which I have just fixed in the profile, I'll stick with Rex because a good many people know "rex" is an oldy time term for for king, and I find Βασιλεύς Λεωνίδας lacks that punch.
