"I'm Just Hosting the Party"

"I've cleaned my house, put snacks and games out, will clean up when everyone leaves and pay for everything that get's broken.  You are all invited to this rocking party!  Be sure to chat around the room, bring any snacks you would like to add to the table, meet some new friends and keep coming back for more!  This is all about YOU, I"m just hosting the party!"  I hope everyone will participate from hanging out in the Facebook Group, to more structured conversations on the Forum, submit and read stories on the website, and make plans to attend our events to meet new friends.
