Well, the whole distraction thing is yet another kettle of worms. Besides the immediate issues (you aren't seeing either the semi changing lanes, the cab being driven by an alien or the business/legal type maneuvering circles around you) it probably means you aren't paying 100% attention, in total, to ANYTHING. The multiply-until-overly-divided factor again.

and in one post here I happened to mention that my mental picture of Friday was as a blonde, and I got *thoroughly* corrected


Blond? I thought she was bald! When did she get hair?

lol holmes think you can attribute that quote to dan :) i envisioned friday as raven haired

and Jim you're preaching to the choir about a distracted world - too many are living a skin deep life full only of themselves and their next post- but then someone will surprise you :) they are the ones who make this life interesting and fulfilling- as RAH noted, they come in all sizes, colors, genders, and species- you just have to keep an eye open for em

I find it increasingly difficult to distinguish between:

" ...writing at length..."

and pretentious babbling.l

Update--currently averaging three visitors per day, but posting has been intermittent.

I think Jim's skepticism about the venture has been proved approximately 93% correct... :o

It's a tough row to hoe for any of us. My commiserations. The choice seems to be between the wasteland of insufficient eyeballs and the ADHD pachinko parlor of modern social media.

I haven't been on this forum very long and I am a little disappointed by the lack of regular posts, BUT...

When I first found the forum I read durned near every thread and was enthralled by it for several days. Reading other peoples opinions of RAH's works reminded me of how much I have loved them and depended on them for the majority of my adult life. The entire thread(s) about the Centennial and how in unfolded had me chuckling in sympathy over the events I have had to put on and gave me utter appreciation of the efforts involved, not to mention a large bit of chagrin that I didn't even know it was going on or I would have gladly attended.

I have checked this forum nearly every day to see if there are any new posts, and look forward to new conversations.

IMHO, the effort is not in vain. If nothing else it is an incredible archive, and one that can be added to.
