Religion, Politics and Discrimination in the Workplace
I don't normally write about such sensitive issues, but after recent events in American politics it has become very prevalent that we discuss or at least give some thought to such matters. 

Do you know the policy in your workplace regarding discussing such hot topics? How does your workplace deal with such issues?

WHOA! You do exist +Miscelleana Rhinehart! I was beginning to worry. I missed you as well. Welcome back to the world. Been doing alright. Trying to make a buck off my writing and still being Mr. Mom, which is still very very  weird. And finally took up standup comedy a few months back. So, yeah, been different.

Fresh paint on my website
Got tired of my previous paint, so scraped it all down and repainted the mess (that's how it works, right?). This version is still just as responsive as the last one (so works great on mobile), but this version allows me the ability to feature certain posts/stories at the top of the homepage. The Home menu is a means to filter posts by a story or type (short story, blurb, novel, etc).

Here I am: http://talesfrombabylon.com

Let me know what you think, if you check it out.

Our own +Squid McFinnigan is in need of nominators on the Kindle Scout platform for his crime novel Honeysuckle Lane. 

So, go forth and give him a vote and let's see if we can't make this happen for him. GO #TeamSquid !!!!
What happens when the front door shuts? Could the person living next to you be a drunk, a wife-beater, a gambler, or even psychotic? Honeysuckle Lane is a street like any other, until one man’s obsession becomes deadly. Then all the streets secrets begin to spill out, for the world to see.

How very nice of you, Sir. I already voted for the Squid-Man. Unfortunately I was informed I may only cast one vote. Not fair...I would like to be able to vote as many times as Squid-Mans stories have made me cry or the number of tissues I have used. Please mail a packet of handkerchiefs. Tissues are becoming too expensive. Thank you so very much.

Once upon a time, I lipped Debbie Reynolds
True story. When I was a senior in high school, I performed (lipped) a Debbie Reynolds outtake version of You are my Lucky Star from the film Singing in the Rain. Many an hour were spent in the living room alone, with the stereo blaring the song, while I crafted this little performance piece. It was stupid fun to perform and one of my favorite parts about using the song for a lipsync was that in the middle of it she does a spoken word part. 

ENJOY.

Today I introduced my son, Aidyn, to "Hey Macarana". I feel like I've done him a great service in preparing him for the future.

ME: (dancing) I still got it! I still got it!

AIDYN: You don't still got it.

This. This is why I love the new +Google Photos. Seinfeld Gifs. FOR EVERYONE! Seinfeld Gifs are the new emoji. I will no longer be accepting those silly yellow faces. Those are sooooo AOL and 1997.

Introduction
Allow me to Introduce Myself
I'm Nathan Weaver, I've been writing for a ridiculously long time, and I'm just starting to get pretty good at the nonsense. I will be posting short stories and novellas here for your reading pleasure. I will also keep you updated in general, and about books in the pipeline. And please leave me comments to let me know how I'm doing.

I also co-own an independent production company, Onyx Dragon Productions.  We've done sketch TV stuff, short films, event videos, wedding videos, commercials, online videos, and we're in post-production on our first full-length movie, The Chalice.  Come Circle us here.

And I write lyrics, and occasionally use my pipes, for Blue Solace.  We make primarily bluesy, folksy music. 

Adds and Add-backs
I'm really bad about falling behind adding-back people who add me to their circles. This often happen, because I don't know why you added me. So the best way to get added back is to write a post share only to me; introduce yourself in it and let me know why you added me.

Here are some circles I have, which you may want to be added to. Share a post only to me to let me know if there are circles here you'd like to be added to.
  • Writers
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Readers
  • Publishers
  • Marketing
  • Movies - Filmmakers and actors land here.
  • Blogger - For Blogger.com users, because I run a Blogger Community.
  • Google - This is reserved  for Google Employees and Pages.
  • Technology
  • Education
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Onyx Dragon fans
  • Blue Solace fans
If you want to follow my writing, I'll add you to the Readers circle. If you want to follow my film-making exploits, I'll add you to the Onyx Dragon fans circle. You get the picture. 

What I Post
Honestly, I use Google+ primarily as a means to an author platform, so I post a lot about writing. I usually share these posts with Writers and Readers circles, though. I try hard to share content with the appropriate circles. I do post some about Technology and Education, because I am a Sr. Video Production Specialist working in online education. 
Bragging rights
I have 10+ years of experience in video production (having started out in television). 15+ years experience as a method actor. At age 21, I was teaching non-linear editing with Final Cut Pro at college level as a professional lecturer. Have three published books. Worked with Jack Hanna, and proved to be that silly camera man who sticks a camera in a python's face. My short horror story 'Family Secret' won a screenplay writing contest, and I got my short sci-fi story 'The Experiment' printed in The Derby Scribes.

Absolutely fantastic food at this place. I had some great fish and my wife had a burger. I think it was the Mike's burger or something, and I finished it for her. Might have been the best burger I've ever had. Highly recommend the food here.

A great little place smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood. I learned about this place, because of their Wednesday night open mic (8pm-11pm). The open mic is great with a mixture of local musicians, poets, and some comedy (I do standup mostly at their open mic). They also have a great menu. The food is good and I haven't had a bad drink yet, either. They serve a mixture of coffee-shop style stuff, liquor and you can get a soda if you're not feeling adventurous. They regularly have performances as well, so pay attention to their schedule if you can. I've been to a couple shows outside of open mic and it is always a treat. And everyone who comes is really nice and warm. Feels like a community there on Wednesday nights.

Have been here a couple of times now with a local writers group, and have enjoyed the visits. The food is great, the atmosphere is great and the service is great. Not much to add other than that. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Huddle House is certainly not much to brag about. But it is one of the few options in Rolla open all night. I really only recommend their breakfast menu, their lunch menu is pretty poor. The service from the wait staff is always good though, so I have to say that. But then again, I'm usually only ever there in the middle of the night. Best time to be there, really. I recommend this over Waffle House, which may be the only other all-nighter option in Rolla.

Excellent food and drinks. I'm not much of a coffee drinker, never liked the taste much, but am slowly converting and I do love their Tuxedo Latte here. Any rate... good food, good drinks, and great atmosphere. It's a brand new location, with development going on about it as well. Highly recommend the yumminess that is 6 North Cafe. There are two other locations in St. Louis area. This one is in Wentzville.

Agree with the other user that this is the largest used book store in Rolla. It has a large collection of books, and you could spend hours walking in and out of rooms and shelves. And the prices are very cheap, which is nice as well. As far as service, I marked it as 'very good', but usually I'm just there to browse. They usually stay out of your way, but can be easily found at the front desk when you need them. I like taking my 4 year old here and looking for books together. They have a decent collection of children's books, plus just about every genre you can think of... from fiction/mystery/horror/sci-fi/fantasy/manga all the way to self-help and non-fiction. Highly recommend it.

Common Grounds has a great menu, decent prices, and a great atmosphere to boot. I don't live in Salem, I'm in Rolla, and don't mind heading over to Salem occasionally to enjoy this lovely place. It is a little difficult to find, at least when I went to it, Google Maps was a little confusing. If you look for the sign, and know that it's around the backside of the building it is in, that helps. One unique element about this place is that they do not fry anything. So when you get fries with a burger, it's baked waffle fries. Which are good. Any rate... go check it out, it's lovely.
