Nathan inspired me to get my camera out, so here I am fooling around with it again. This is part of my back yard. Do you see the humming bird at the hummingbird feeder?

How about now?

A little late posting the pictures

But I graduated. Now I am starting Graduate School and should be done by Winter of 2009 with course work, but Spring of 2010 with my Master's Exam.

These two years will be fun :roll:

Thank you...Masters of American and English Literature. I wish Marquette University had Masters of English Linguistics, but there is no such degree. The Master's Exam tests three areas: English Literature to 1600, English Literature from 1601 to Present, and American Literature. The test requires me to select two out of the three areas and within each area I have to write certain types of argumentative essays (a total of 7 hours!)...blah blah blah

It all equals a piece of paper and a handshake :?

Dear Italians (or fluent Italian speakers) (or Latin experts),


Could anyone please translate this:

Sorry, can't help you. Looks Latin to me. Where is it taken?

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girolamo_Savonarola for the gruesome details of Savonarola's trial and execution, which is what this plaque commemorates. This should enable you to come up with the transalation, if you still need one.

I happened to know about this as the story is decribed in Mario Puzo's novel The Family, a riveting chronicle of the life of the Borgia pope Alexander VI.
