Vulcanalia, Mt. Vesuvius and my birthday


It’s my birthday today – Thursday, August 23 – the day the Romans celebrated “Vulcanalia” and the day before Mt. Vesuvius erupted August 24 AD 79.

Hope you are enjoying the final days of summer – and getting caught up on the next chapters in Thucydides (for reading group 2) and the Old Testament (for reading group 1).

Reading with you is a great gift!
