    Are people coming here seeing this box? LD posted here some weeks ago, but no one else. If you see this could you say "HI" in this box?

    Updated FAQ Question/Answer on "Practical Advice For Implementing Epicurean Principles": https://www.epicureanfriends.com/wcf/index.php?faq/#entry-26

  • Cassius

    I have adjusted the top menu so that the first item is "New!" Click that button and you get a scrollable list of all new content that you can check back to the last time you visited.

  • Cassius

    Today I set up a new subforum for "Research Assistance" and started a thread on an old book by Digby that is available on the internet, but only through "partner access" through a university. I hope others will tgake the opportunity to ask for assistance in this subforum: Research Assistance

    If you have bookmarked another page besides "Home" as your start page, please be sure to check the Home Page https://www.epicureanfriends.com/index.php?home/ for an announcement about receiving upcoming regular newsletter emails. If you prefer not to receive them, it's easy to unsubscribe.

    I am switching the "Rostrum" back to visible by everyone so we can use it for global announcements. Unregistered and new users can see this box but cannot post here. Everyone who sees the "write message" box is welcome to post announcements and quick comments or questions here.

  • Cassius

    The discussion of Imagery reminds me that we need to use what we have. I will add the full text of A Few Days in Athens and some Lucian dialogues to the respective forums.

  • Laughing Democritus

    Absolutely! Good to keep the energy up in here! :)

  • Cassius

    Thanks to Laughing Democritus for starting so many threads recently!

  • Cassius

    We now have a collection of graphics for PD1 - time to gather some for PD2! https://www.epicureanfriends.c…egory-image-list/189-pd2/

  • Cassius

    YES LD You get the gold star! I was beginning to think I had this set so no one but me could read it! Thank you!!!!

  • Laughing Democritus

    Gold star!!😀😀😀

  • Cassius

    Please welcome Jasper Sky - Sounds like a great addition, just like Florius Lupus.

  • Cassius

    If you're using the Dashboard, I have removed all fixed text from the top so this page is easier to use to see new things only. Is that an improvement??

  • Cassius

    Okay the first person who is not me who types something here is going to get a gold star.

  • Cassius

    Our "great commission" - VS41. At one and the same time we must philosophize, laugh, and manage our household and other business, while never ceasing to proclaim the words of true philosophy.
