With great sadness and respect I report the passing of William I. Bacchus, Robert Heinlein's nephew.

William I. Bacchus, a personnel specialist who retired in 2001 from the U.S. Agency for International Development after serving as executive director of two management councils, died Jan. 23 at...

William is mentioned in the Heinlein letters multiple times and RAH helped him along as he grew up. Bob and Ginny were friends with the Bacchus family.

Safe travels.

Thanks for posting these here. That last one especially should be preserved in the permanent record this forum provides.

We’re simply trying to survive—and the first principle of survival is not to worry about the impossible and concentrate on what’s possible.

This Heinlein saying got 210 looks on Facebook.
Cheers..

Thank you Elisabeth. Please come by more often... Elisabeth is the Heinlein Twitter Administrator.
Because this quote just asked to be "quote picture"...

You just gotta go look at the picture and quote. The display is awesome. There are 255 views, 25 shares and 35 likes. Deb got the quote from the Heinlein archives and Elizabeth did the picture (I believe-but they're usually hard to pin down when I start asking questions)

You guys can come over and post too. Anything you want; pictures, sayings, links to videos, questions, etc. And I know this group has a lot of really good stuff!

Look, friends, the only possible way to enjoy life is not to be afraid to die. A zest for living requires a willingness to die; you cannot have the first without the second. The '60s and '70s and '80s and '90s can be loaded with the zest for living, high excitement, and gutsy adventure for any truly human person. Truly human? I mean you descendants of cavemen who outlasted the saber-tooth, you who..

Another Heinlein quote. It was a big hit.

This is weird! Does space really have a smell? Apparently so. Astronauts claim that an odor clings to their spacesuits when they return from a spacewalk.

Nerdy toy makers used input from scientists to create a candle that smells like space.
