... upon my return from the store so I don't have to think about it again. The suggestion was made to wash eggs, too.

Unfortunately, we are on a curfew and have to be in our homes by 7pm. We follow the curfew religiously.

... were built by King Ramses II for himself and for his favourite queen Nefertari about 1290 to 1223 BC. Ramses II was one of the longest reigning Pharoahs (67 yrs) and had 36 wives, 104 sons & 111 daughters. Quite an active man!
