One thing I really like about this is that my iPod keeps a copy of my Outlook calendar. Now all my Google calendar entries get sync'd to my iPod!
Gates of Paradise at SAM
At left is a photo I took of one of the 3 panels last December in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They are spectacular. I highly recommend seeing them.
Michelangelo is credited with dubbing them “the gates of paradise,” and sixteenth-century artist and writer Giorgio Vasari called them “the finest masterpiece ever created, either in ancient or modern times.” Three stunning panels from Lorenzo Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise, one of the most celebrated works of the Italian Renaissance, are on view at SAM Downtown. This exhibition marks the first time that the bronze panels have traveled to the United States since their creation over 550 years ago. Generations of admirers have praised the monumental doors of the Florence baptistery for their compelling portrayal of scenes from the Old Testament and their innovative treatment of architectural space.
The panels were originally created for display on doors leading into a church in Florence, the Babtistry. Currently, the Babtistry displays copies of the panels.

Memorable Ben Hur lines
Judah Ben-Hur: If that is the choice, then I am against you.
Judah Ben-Hur: If you were not a bride I should kiss you goodbye.
Esther: If I were not a bride, there would be no goodbyes to be said.
Judah Ben-Hur: No! I warn you! Rome is an affront to God! Rome is strangling my people and my country, the whole Earth! But not forever. I tell you the day Rome falls there will be a shout of freedom such as the world has never heard before!
Judah Ben-Hur: May God grant me vengeance. I will pray that you live until I return.
Judah Ben-Hur: God, help me.
Quintus Arrius: Your eyes are full of hate, forty-one. That's good. Hate keeps a man alive. It gives him strength.
Now listen to me, all of you. You are all condemned men. We keep you alive to serve this ship. So row well, and live.
Quintus Arrius: Battle speed..... Attack speed...... Ramming Speed....... Rest.
Quintus Arrius: In his eagerness to save you, your god has also saved the Roman fleet.
Tiberius Caesar: If not, there is a strange inconsistency in this man, who tries to kill my governor, yet saves the life of my consul. Come tomorrow, and we will talk of him.
Sheikh: Bravely spoken.
Judah Ben-Hur: Yes, this is the day.
Massala: The race is not over.
Pontius Pilate: A grown man knows the world he lives in. For the present, that world is Rome.
Miriam: I am afraid.
Esther: No cause. The world is more than we know.

Tips for doing the Seattle-to-Portland Bike Ride (STP)
1. Do it with somebody, otherwise its too boring.
2. Don't bring a water back-pack. Just carry two water bottles and try to get everything else under the seat, or in your pockets.
3. Toledo High School is a good place to sepnd the night, but maybe try to go a bit farther next time, like Castle Rock?
4. Only bring 1 extra tube (2 max) to save space. If you use it you can always buy another one at the next stop.
5. Bring a spare spoke or two in case one breaks.
6. Leave at 5 am or 5:30 to avoid heat and get a good start. I can just leave from my house and skip the start.
7. The air mattress is wonderful for sleeping on.
8. Eat a lot and drink a lot. Stop at every rest stop.
9. Use tons of chamois lube.
10. As part of training, in addition to a bunch of 45 mile rides, try to do a couple 70 or 80 mile rides with a 45 the day after.
