If you enjoy "small talk" (that endless gossip about Michael Jackson's death or the royal wedding or whatever happens to be the popular subject of the day), you might not like this group. We don't do small talk here. But if you feel that small talk suffocates you, if your soul screams for something deep and meaningful - than come and join others who feel the same way.
Hello Alexandra, Several years ago I found out that Roman Citizens were entitled to free medical healthcare. I became interested in finding out if the effect on defense of the empire was compromised paying doctors left little for defense. I found the Wikipedia Decline of the Roman Empire interesting. It cites many problems but limited funds for defense became an issue. Taxing farmers more than they can pay closed down farms. This led to food shortages & poor nutrition for the poor.
Thank you for the note, Alexandra, about joining...
Hi Alexandra, thank you for your encouraging email. I've joined the waiting list and hope someone will make room.
It was very nice meeting you today... I really enjoyed our meeting ... it was really nice to practice my Arabic :)
I know I said I was free next weekend but I just realized that I have a commitment on Sunday... I could be free the following Saturday afternoon or Sunday instead :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
