Introduction

I have a general interest in history, but more specifically I like architecture and art and the history of things in DC.

Did you pay attention in history class in high school?

Sometimes.

Who is a historical figure you admire or are curious about?

No answer yet

What is a historical event that stands out as interesting to you?

Prohibition. It's a great example of conservative action gone wrong.

What would you like to get from this group?

Field trips. I love field trips. Museums, cemeteries, monuments, you name it.

We ll try again tonight to sign him up, but everytime, it doesn't go,through. Thanks

    Washington D.C. Literature and Classics Meetup

    Welcome, Sharon! We are equal opportunity where koala bears are concerned. Seriously, we are a low key group of book lovers who are (also) passionate about good literature which you'll not find on best seller lists. Hope to see you at a discussion soon.

    Hello Sharon,

    I have about 5 or 6 people coming on the walk tomorrow who are not part of the meetup group so the walk is still on. We look forward to meeting you. We'll meet on the corner of King and Royal Streets. I'll be wearing a grey fedora.

    Welcome, glad you joined Writers Count - that means you want to write daily, is that correct? What I will do is set up a Discussion thread for you where you can post your daily writing target - how many words. Look at the discussion thread I set up for myself. I’ve found it surprisingly effective. In the morning, I post how many words I intend to write that day. At the end of the day I post how many I wrote. Very easy. Want me to set up one for you? That's what Writers Count is about.

    Northern Virginia Electric Car Owners

    Hey there my favorite Spanish Translator! Good to hear from you again. You know I drive a LEAF, right? :) Anyway, just wanted to point out that the 2013 Tesla Roadster, Model S and Model X, as well as the Toyota Rav4 and my Nissan LEAF are 100% electric cars, no hybrid, no gasoline backup. Our organizer Bruce has a converted car and it's one mean machine showing that you don't have to buy an OEM electric, you can quite nicely convert!

    Howdy Sharon,

    I've a request if you don't mind. You submitted a piece for today's meeting but although we've had a lot of time to read the audio version many won't have time to look at this the same day as our meeting. In fact, you and I were a bit late this week, me on Saturday and you with a poem yesterday and I decided to allow both, but in general, all submissions should be submitted by the prior Friday to give everyone a chance to review your work. Thanks, look forward to more Puebla!

    Buenos Tardes Sharon! As you may have noticed, we've moved you recited work of non-fiction translation to next Tuesday the 29th but you've not signed up to attend this week which was originally a Fiction-only week but is now a combined meetup since Non-Fiction today is cancelled. So I hope you can attend so we can all discuss your piece. Love the Koala, han hao meetup group choices and looking forward to finally making your acquaintance!

    Welcome Sharon! It's fine to submit short pieces and Koala's are cute! Yay!
