#gtstoogies 5

What is Imaginational Dabrowski thinking?
He is imagining how good the pizza will taste at this week’s #gtstoogies get together before and after the Twitter #gtchat sessions.
But also on a deeper level he is contemplating the posters of Venice and Pisa and thinking about the history of the places. The poster of the Leaning Tower of Pisa makes him think about Galileo http://www.endex.com/gf/buildings/ltpisa/ltpnews/physnews1.htm and whether or not he actually dropped things from the tower in order to disprove Aristotle’s assertion and about Galileo’s arguments with the Pope.
And on an even deeper level Imaginational Dabrowski is thinking about how the sands fall through the hourglass and the glowing future passes though that tiny moment of being the absolute present to become buried in the sands of time and how when you turn the hourglass on its side it looks like the infinity symbol lemniscate.
This makes him think of Mobius strips which leads to Mobius bagels which brings him back to the wonderful Italian feast being prepared for the #gtstoogies
A pizza oven has been brought in and fired up and the table is laden with the delicious fare which the gtstoogies have cooked or collected from their favourite delis.
Intellectual Dabrowski remembered his hero Leonardo da Vinci and went to fetch a puzzle for us. What has he brought with him this week?
Italian Greyhound, Maremma Sheepdog, Bracco, Italiano Bolognese and Volpino Italiano were all invited to be taste testers. Italian Greyhound was a bit overawed by the grand scale of the affair. Maremma Sheepdog was too busy with his shepherding duties to come and sent an apology.
The Twitter birds had been busy searching for dark handsomes to serenade us and finding History programs and teaching units such as

Italy History lesson plans
