Women had muscly arms -- didn't they?

They didn't have washing machines or food mixers back then ;-)
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Two of my favourite things: Renaissance art and music. Lovely. Cheers fire-fly.

Did you notice the layer of clear Lexan covering the long, marble benches and  side-walls?

Been to the Vatican before. While the art is stunning I felt like cattle being herded around in our dozens by stern faced guards. This is a much nicer tour, you can really stop and appreciate the art.

Also, I remember vaguely learning in school something about men and women having the same bodies in a lot of Michelangelo's works but for the life of me I can't remember why. Also women were a sturdier stock back then.  ;D
