Salve Gai,

Thanks for finding the article on ancient Pompeian wine. I would sure
love to taste it and hopefully we'll find it in specialty wine stores
some day.

It does sound much more appealing that figuring out how to make
garum, or the Roman recipe for what was basically tuna salad. Wonder
if it will be in both white and red varieties. I'd shell out some
money for a decent white wine, but for red not even a penny.

Not from me, certainly; I'll be happy to take the red that you don't
want, and we can go in on a package deal. :)

Although William Harris' _An Intelligent Person's Guide to Latin_ is
now available only by mail order, Harris (Professor Emeritus of
Classics, Middlebury College) has an excellent essay on how English
and Latin grammars differ and how those differences matter in teaching
or studying Latin, "English Grammar as Prolegomena to Latin":

Subject: [Nova-Roma] quite puzzled about taxes.....

(I just now looked where I saved the auto-message and it is a receipt of
payment so actually my question here is... on a bank statement that has a
period from the early 20's of the month to the next early 20's of the
month [for example from 24 March to 22 April] would a check cashed on the
21st of April make the April statement??)


Actually now I'm quite puzzled about the ultimate fate of sending any
checks for anything to the NR post office box in Maine.....

Okay, the thing is that many moons ago I posted asking about the flags
and asking about the guy that makes them (forgot the full NR name but
remember the Cassius part) and I even sent him an offlist mail with the
check number and details so he could look and see whether he got it or
not....and then never heard again.

Then I sent another check to the same NR PO box listed on the flag page
and still nothing so I scanned the carbon copy of the new check and saved
the file in two formats to floppy and sent both files to him and got
nothing....

Now I've sent the check for my NR tax to the Maine PO box with my NR name
on the check and I think a small note... got the email saying that it's
both a reminder and (for those who already paid) a thank you for those
that paid.... I didn't think anything of it until I got my bank
statement today and it said that check no. 1050 didn't make the statement
so I looked it up and it was the check I wrote to cover my taxes!

I am maybe thinking now to withdraw citizenship if I can't even get my
taxes to the right place without the darned check vanishing into the
Twilight Zone instead of it going to some destination either there or
"returned to sender" or what.... Heck I might even be happy if some
corrupt postal worker or anyone tries to steal the check and tires to
cash it...at least I'd know where the check is... ;-(

Minucius Audens. So the little Albata of the last year is becoming
the most strong Factio of the year. Now Russata is far 10 points and
it seems there aren't proud red chariots able to stop the noble
Whites.
And where is the glorious Praesina? ... in the last place with two
bad tournament. Veneta keeps attenction from the Greens.

All the results are published at

Never mind the red & white (or the Rosť). Do we know if the Romans had types of wine we no longer do? They probably could not have sparkling without Dom Perignon's reinforced corks and glass but Portugal produces a semi-sparkling it calls Vinho Verde and Brittany a smoky brew rather like China tea said to go excellently with sea creatures any fool should realise are best left alone when a hammer comes with the knife & fork under the generic of Muscadet. I wonder if there were other distinctive types not in present categories.

Salve,

Lucius Porticus Brutus, your tax payment has been recieved by the
Quaestors, and as near as I can find out, an email reciept should
have been issued to you already. That means your taxes have been paid
as far as Nova Roma is concerned. Your check has NOT been deposited
yet... deposits are made once a week rather than every time each
individual Citizen check arrives.

Please DO be advised that I personally have nothing whatever to do
with taxes. I don't even handle the envelopes, even though they're
coming to the same Nova Roma box.

As far as coins and flags, (which I do handle, and am solely
responsible for) I am *always* late in shipping. The website
says "six to eight weeks for delivery" for a reason. My work has been
involving long overtime hours for a few months now and getting things
to the post office during working hours is difficult. I just sent out
a bunch of orders this weekend, so if you had anything holding it
probably went out. (I do have a summer employee returning to work on
May 2nd, so things will be far better over the summer.)

While we're on the subject of coins and flags, I must say that it is
very difficult to give most folks proper notification of when items
have been, or will be shipped. Orders that come in have
people's "macronational names" and mailing addresses - no NR name or
email usually. If anyone subsequently sends an email or posts to the
list, using ONLY their NR name and email address, I have no way to
cross reference who's who.

I intend to write to the webmaster to ask that a sentence be included
in the ordering section: "Please include your email address, and your
Citizen name if you are a Citizen of Nova Roma."

Valete,

Marcus Cassius Julianus
