I just stopped by to let you know how much I missed the Sunday evening edition of THOR, and saw this picture.

What a lovely baby!

But really, a baby is no excuse to take my Sunday entertainment away! What kind of priorities do you have? ;-)

God bless. Keep him away from the masks of his ancestors, lest he become consumed with ambition!


Congratulations! Maybe you should have called him Cesar :) God bless you!

Congratulations! Never commented here before, but after two years I finally finished your Epic podcast. I am so grateful for all the hard work you put into that show and will definitely be donating right after submitting this. I would wish you luck with all your projects, but I'm not sure you need luck. Thanks.

Congrats to you and condolences to Mrs THoR , or maybe congrats to her, too, on getting rid of an 11lb lump. 16 years from now, when he's become Jeremy of "Zits," just remember how you felt on May 22.


Compared to podcast, time will speed up... the next thing you know, he is in school, out of school and waving bye bye. Enjoy each minute. Congrats to all.






He's adorable! Congratulations!

Cute baby! You now need to elevate him to the rank of Caesar, quick!

Congratulations on your beautiful son. The beginning of a dynasty?

Congratulations! It really is fun watching them grow and change; just when you get used to the stage they are in, they progress and mix things up. Have fun with it all dude!


Congratulations sir. Thank you for all of the wonderful informative entertainment you've provided me for the last six months, and may your family be blessed by whatever pantheon you so worship.

Congratulation to you and the Mrs History of Rome! And of course the little History of Rome!


Congratulations! Most newborns are bit strange looking LOL but not yours. Our little son was born two days later, but he is a tad smaller at 8.5 lbs. Thanks for the great podcast by the way. Brilliant!!!


Congratz and thanx for the unlimited hours of entertainment :) do I count more as a listener being born and raised in rome? ;)


Congrats! Your podcast could lull him to sleep:)

Julie Downs

Happy, happy times! Enjoy every moment as they go by waaaay too fast. Snuggle now while you can!

It was at that point in my life I told my Mom “I didn’t know you loved me this much!” Your life just got so much better. Now, enjoy.


Congrats to Mr & Mrs History of Rome - looks very chilled ;)

Congratulations on the birth of your son. Children are such a joy (and a lot of work). Thank-you for sharing this with us, your fans. As a side note I've been playing catch-up on many missed episodes. I'm very grateful for all the hard work you did for us listeners. It is a great education for me.

Just looked in to mention my blog http://alysb.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/classical-sites-in-le-marche/
