I've just spent most of my free time for the last 3 days organizing files and then burning back-up DVD's, to free up necessary space on my hard drive. Reading books while I sit and wait 25 minutes for each disk.

Nevertheless, a very nice deck there indeed!

dr bartolo wrote:well I can explain the placing of the One of trump, for In the german game of tarock, the one of trump ("pagat") has a special role, and related to the "le battleur" of tarot, which is depicted as a magician, or trivial performer and so, the "pagat" is naturally a jester of some sort.
Also, the famous french tarot, which has a seemingly arbitary series of scenes on the trumps, seems to have some order.....
dr bartolo wrote:Another thing, why Agrippina was placed at the 21st trump,was probably for the reason that the mother of nero was born in what is now Colonge.
(p.s do you have an image of the 21st trump? if so, would you post it? thx.)
