Next One
Start from the Uffizi, cross the Ponte Vecchio and continue on.

Eventually you'll come to one of the gates into Firenze
and this somewhat controversial statue.

vacay photo
ok - you got me. I might have lied on the previous post.

Hubbie and I don't vacay anywhere near as exotic. This is where we went for our last vacation, and we didn't even go to this one (Bay area). We went to the one in Austin.

If you are stumped you might post to the regular discussion board and ask for their help. I know I wasn't the only Modern Vespa'er there!

It's a very cool museum that was started and funded mostly by Microsofties.
(And it got a lot of attention when it first opened because of it's unique appearance)

As far as I can tell from the previews I've seen it's a show about some uptight lawyer type in SF coming to terms with his own sexuality. Having a vision of George Michael dancing in his living room is the catalyst that sets it all in motion.

well you got the lawyer, SF right and the vision of George Michael right.

Driven by ambition, Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) has built a successful career at a top San Francisco law firm in representing the biggest and richest corporations where "screwing over the little guy" is common practice. After experiencing a series of odd hallucinations, including a crooning vision of George Michael, Eli turns to his neurologist brother, Nathan (Matt Letsher), only to be told there is nothing wrong with him. As the visions persist, he's anxious to find the cause of his delirium and seeks the help of Dr. Chen (James Saito), a Chinese acupuncturist who specializes in holistic medicine. Though skeptical of his practice, Eli finds Dr. Chen can help him recall important memories from his past.

Eli's visions continue to intensify and begin to affect his practice, relationships and how he is perceived. But it's not until Eli puts his own life in peril that Nathan recognizes similar episodes their father shared and reconsiders what may be ailing his brother. Upon another review of the symptoms and an MRI, Nathan discovers Eli is suffering from an inoperable brain aneurysm that's causing his illusions.

If Nathan represents science, Dr. Chen represents faith. As Eli struggles to cope with his diagnosis, he looks to Dr. Chen for his take on the relationship of his revelations to his aneurysm. Dr. Chen suggests there could be a divine answer for why he's having delusions of grandeur - Eli may be a prophet.

While Eli is skeptical of being a prophet, his visions have helped him to recall what his father once impressed upon him -- "You're meant to do great things... speak inspired words... you're going to help people." With his father's words in mind, Eli redefines his outlook on life and his intent as a lawyer, beginning with a case in which he represents an old acquaintance against one of his firm's most important clients. Despite opposition from his imposing boss and future father-in-law, Jordan Wethersby (Victor Garber), and fiancée Taylor (Natasha Henstride), he chooses to stay the course.

Eli's resolve will be further tested by his colleagues, who include his sassy assistant, Patti (Loretta Devine), and fellow counsel Matt Dowd (e), an ambitious, competitive shark who exemplifies everything Jordan would like Eli to be. He'll also be challenged by Maggie Dekker (Julie Gonzalo), an inexperienced, junior associate who questions his commitment to change.

The series is produced by ABC Studios.
