    This piece of Frederick II' s work reminds me of the Mausoleum of Theodoric in Ravenna http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&fr=ytff1-tyc-full&p=mausoleum%20of%20theodoric&type= and that in turn reminds me of an ogre of my childhood -- the Everton Water Tower http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&fr=ytff1-tyc-full&p=everton%20water%20tower%20liverpool&type=, the water tower is part of a water processing plant and made/makes? a really weird noise that used to frighten me half to death. Currently the tower, which is located in one of the highest spots in Liverpool, is lit up at night and can be seen for miles around.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
