I just got off the phone with him and he is doing fine...looking forward to the Holidays. He'll be back around after he finishes up some projects around the house.

BTW, the 1st pyramid (step pyramid) was built by Imhotep in the saqqara complex. the complex was designed to hold massive amounts of grain.



not a lot of people know this, but imhotep rose up from the common people, he become 2nd under the pharaoh, he even interpreted pharaohs dream about 7 years of famine and 7 years of plentiful harvest.


you might recognize imhotep from his more accurate name and life description which is found in the bible:


Joseph!
