Vesuvius Day

Did you know that today is the anniversary of the day that Mount Vesuvius exploded and destroyed Pompeii?

Today’s a great day to learn all about Pompeii. Or if you want to make light of it and go a bit more pop cultured, watch the episode of Doctor Who called The Fires of Pompeii.

Also, mythology stuff. Vulcan = Hephaestus. Volcanic links to that etymology wise.
