BOOK OF THE WEEK

Hadrian And The Triumph of Rome

By Anthony Everitt

This is not an easy read, but if you are into the history of the Roman Empire as I am, you want to read this book.

Born in A.D. 76, Hadrian lived through and ruled during a tempestuous era, a time when the Colosseum was opened to the public and Pompeii was buried under a mountain of lava and ash. Acclaimed author Anthony Everitt vividly recounts Hadrian’s thrilling life, in which the emperor brings a century of disorder and costly warfare to a peaceful conclusion while demonstrating how a monarchy can be compatible with good governance.

What distinguished Hadrian’s rule, according to Everitt, were two insights that inevitably ensured the empire’s long and prosperous future: He ended Rome’s territorial expansion, which had become strategically and economically untenable, by fortifying her boundaries (the many famed Walls of Hadrian), and he effectively “Hellenized” Rome by anointing Athens the empire’s cultural center, thereby making Greek learning and art vastly more prominent in Roman life. (Source: Amazon)

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

I always feel sorry for people who think you can’t have friends at work. Bryant and Ken were two of the best people I ever met in my life and I worked with them for years. They are both gone now, but I always remember Ken’s birthday on March 29 and Bryant’s birthday on March 31.

Happy Birthday Bryant and Ken.

  1. Okay this had me laughing, especially the high stakes gambling and the art work. The memes were all amusing. Ahh to bad they dismantled so many drive ins, could still go to the movies and not worry about distancing. Good post we need a good laugh now, I’m tired of hearing and reading all the gloom and doom. We all know what should and shouldn’t be done and follow those guidelines. Been reading, writing, some Netflix’s and avidly avoiding the news. I can’t abide one more incoherent BS update from agent orange and crew. Take care, be safe.
