A Special Thanks to Zeus, Father of Gods and Men!

Let me start by giving a big thanks to my father, who we affectionately call Zeus, for helping out with an extra computer while my Alienware Area 51 computer is down.  As the autopsy progresses on my dead Alienware, we hope to find the problem, fix it and bring the aliens back to life as it were.  I think the problem may be in the Alienware BIOS because the computer does not identify the boot drive. Maybe the hard drive is dead or it could be anything.  Anyway I hope to soon have it back up and running.

The HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC that dad provided to keep the work flowing, is a nice laptop and has everything I need to keep the project moving forward.  I think we will have to soon move to the Adobe Cloud because even if you’re forced to switch machines, you can still access the software necessary to edit photos and videos.

The Almighty Zeus

God of the Sky and Thunder

Divine Ruler of Mount Olympus

Jupiter of Smyrna

Statue of a male deity, brought to Louis XIV and restored as a Zeus in 1686 by Pierre Granier, who added the arm raising the thunderbolt.

In Greek mythology, Zeus is the king of all gods. The ancient Greeks, like many societies of that time, were polytheistic or believed in many gods. His symbols included lightning bolts, eagles, oak trees and the mighty bull. He was the patron of hospitality and guests, ready to avenge any wrong done to a stranger. He was the keeper of oaths, overseer of business and punished dishonest traders.

In Roman mythology he was called Jupiter with all the same titles.   Jupiter was the chief deity of Roman state religion throughout the Republican and Imperial eras, until Christianity became the dominant religion of the Empire.
