    It Would Be Cooooooooooolll

    To live there would have been mindblowing. I would have loved to paint my face and (if i was one of the royalty) or experience the unique way of life.... the only drawback would be the burying me alive thing.... you'd be damned if I'd go quietly

    Well Versed

    Not exactly sure how you can write a story about you love Ancient Egypt, but it's one of those things that has been with me all of my life.  I'm not exactly an Egyptologist, but I've bought and read a dozen or so books on Egypt, so I know my way around the culture and...

    Yes I am an "old man" but let me tell you this. You see a hand gripping a cane. Well Ramses II ruled for more than 60 years and my logo resembles the crook which along with the flail was the symbol of royalty. So If you see my logo it could be "old Ramses grasping the royal crook...
