Pasta! I need want desire must-have pasta. Penne with a spicy amatriciana sauce. And a snow-fall of parmesan cheese.
I’ve been reading an excellent biography of Caesar, imaginatively entitled ‘Caesar’ (by Adrian Goldsworthy). Caesar is such an amazing man for many of the reasons Adrian states in his introduction:
…in his fifty-six years, Caesar was at times many things, including a fugitive, prisoner, rising politician, army leader, legal advocate, rebel, dictator…as well as husband, father, lover and adulterer
It’s hard not to admire him; if I could have a conversation with any historical personality it would be hard to go past Julius. His efforts and achievements are simply on a scale that is seldom seen, now or in the past.
