    The second side of Ben Hur didn't play well. So I don't know how it ended. What I saw was good though. I only knew there was an exciting chariot race.

Now, we're going to fix up this one, which will be a nightmare while it's happening but worth it in the end.
      Aw, and I had already had some tips ready for the moving part... ...which I, myself, am not doing again any time soon.

      Wait, you've never seen Ben Hur before?

      Here's how it ends:

      Spoiler:
      During the chariot race, Messala drives a chariot with blades on the hubs to tear apart competing vehicles; he attempts to destroy Ben-Hur's chariot but destroys his own instead. Messala is fatally injured, while Ben-Hur wins the race. Before dying, Messala tells Ben-Hur that "the race is not over" and that he can find his family "in the Valley of the Lepers, if you can recognize them." Ben-Hur visits the nearby leper colony, where (hidden from their view) he sees his mother and sister.

      Blaming Roman rule for his family's fate, Ben-Hur rejects his patrimony and Roman citizenship. Learning that Tirzah is dying, Ben-Hur and Esther take her and Miriam to see Jesus, but the trial of Jesus before Pontius Pilate has begun. Ben-Hur witnesses the crucifixion of Jesus, and Miriam and Tirzah are miraculously healed during the rainstorm following the crucifixion. Ben-Hur declares, "And I felt his [Jesus's] voice take the sword out of my hand."

        Oh wow! Isn't it funny how things manage to work out? Glad to know you'll get to stay where you love!

        Heh! Thanks for the birthday wishes, and no worries, last week was CRAZY.

            We kicked Israel's butt with 3 goals to 1, which means Belgium is now number 1 on the FIFA ranking list of soccer countries. We are the best (for a month or so, and then it'll change again).

              Soccer and Hockey go on forever. I think that's part of the attraction to me of Football. In college they only play around 11 games and if they're lucky, some sort of "championship" game. It only goes on for a few months.

                In Belgium the soccer competition starts in September and ends in ... err... april (I think). I don't follow any teams, just the national team. Besides almost all the players of our national team play in the English competition.

                  Yeah, I feel much the same way. Football gets a noticeable break in the action, whereas with soccer, between the amateur/Olympic-level and the pros, it seems like it never ends. Ah well, more power (and play time!) to 'em.

                    Wow. Impressive. It's pretty unusual for teams to become Number 1 in the FIFA World Rankings without already being World or European Champions.

                        Good morning, Sparkies! Happy Fluffy Thursday!

                        Early morning start for me; we're off to the mainland for a raiding party/shopping trip and meeting with the architect. Try not to burn down the internet while I'm gone, LOL!

                              Good morning, Sparkies! Happy Pretty Friday!

                              The raiding party was a smashing success! Got everything we needed, the meeting with the architect went very well, and as a bonus, it was dark when we came back, so we got to see the sparkling lights of the houses all the way up the sound as we approached on the ferry. Absolutely gorgeous!

                              Oh dear. What could go wrong, indeed.
