  1. That's right, Julius Caesar.

    I know everyone here waits on the edge of their seat for me to create this thread every year, so here it is! :rollno:

    If you want to read more about The Roman Empire, this is one of the best sites I've found: www.roman-empire.net

    If you know of any other good sites, please post them.

    So tonight, dress in a toga, have a Caesar salad, and cross the Rubicon either figuratively or literally. :p

    Oh, and stay away from the senate, y'all.

    Mike :D

    I was actually planning on posting this thread before I went to work this morning, thus taking all the glory. Too bad I forgot. :(

  9. True, and many people also don't know that 70s heartthrob, Bobby Sherman's hit record, "Julie, Julie, Julie," was dedicated to Caesar. :bag: www.bobbysherman.com
