    Hi LLLL,

    Pity. I fancy a chain-saw fight from time to time.

    It was actually not that long ago I was sec-checked, about six years ago. I always granted myself full Internet access. No Internet Nanny for me, ever. :-)

    I always trusted myself to judge whether I should or should not be in communication with someone. I never needed the CofS to dictate that to me. Actually I find SP's to be well above the average of humankind.

    Does anyone remember Paul Bennett? He was the funniest person at Stonelands (some time between 1974 and 1980), told jokes all the time. Somehow he ended up in the SO with two little children, and I think he worked in Div 2. Anyway, when he left he told me he was going back out into the world to become a stand-up comedian. I guess life was too serious at Stonelands. I've often wondered what happened!

    Hi Solo, he married Christine and went to live in South Africa as far as I know. I thought he was great too. Always made me laugh. Christine was lovely too. They were really good friends with Nick and Kirsty ____?

    Dave Flood is alive and well in San Diego. I don't recognise any of the names of his FB friends, bar one, which is how I came across his profile.

    I sent him a message. He doesn't look too exy, but you never know.

    Paul
    Hmmm what does an exy look like LOL

    What about Alf Wilson is he still alive, he must be getting on now

    What abourt Tony Bazook or whatever his name was. an exec, we played
    Tennis at the front of St. Hill a few times

    Oh yeah, then Ruth from New York, who must have been about 60 at the time.
    She used to shuffle around the kitchen and say very sternly, something like

    "milk only only for tea......"

    With her lovely New Yorker accent

    Wouldn't a reuniion be a great thing, dont you think, then we could all go down to Saint Hill for a guided tour of the manor.....
    Hi again. I remember Nicola and Vashti well... they were married to two brothers too weren't they?

    Ruthie was married to lovely old Alex, who was quite a good artist. I remember a painting he did of a tiger that used to hang in the hallway of Stonelands upstairs by the bookcase.

    Tony Baziuk was a good friend of my brother in law at the time (Chris Haritou) but I think he stayed in.

    Wow Norman Wade and Alf Wilson... wonder what happened to them, and to John Cronin, Mick Parkee, Quinton McDougall, Mark Gardiner, The Shantz family, The Quirinos, Trisha Morgan, Lee Morgan, Elizabeth Collins, The Bolgers, Peter Whitehouse and Pauline Chatterton, and so it goes on!!!

    Hi Vumba,

    I don't have any info on lots who you mention, but I read somewhere on ESMB that dear Mick Parkee is still in but has moved on from his post as cook at Stonelands. Trisha Morgan left, I think ages ago.

    Peter Morgan phoned me during the Basics saga. He was Chaplain at SH and promised to sort out the thing about my account being filched to pay for the Basics that I never signed up for. Never heard from him after that. He said he'd paid a visit to Australia to see his sons and sounded sad about his estrangement from them. I'm not sure which sons these were as I think he had more than one wife.

    Ivis and Bob Bolger are at Flag last I heard, and their eldest daughter (forget her name) is, I think, in the hole at RTC or at least on staff there.

    I just can hardly believe that those folks are still putting up with that slave driving organization.

    Tony Baziuk is with ABLE Int still, I think. You can Google him.

    John Cronin died. When I visited SH around 2002 I stayed at a house that had Mark Gardner and his wife in it. He had taken out a bank loan to pay off his Freeloader Bill (can you believe that?). Elizabeth Collins married Ian Feldmesser and they were in LA years ago. I last spoke to Sylvia when she was auditing me in the RPF in 1996, but I forget what she said about Lizzie's then-current situation. Bolgers are at FSO I believe. Peter Whitehouse you can Google, works in the martial arts arena still I assume. Last time I looked he was teaching police forces or something. Pauline I last heard was uplines doing finance stuff still. The others I don't know about.

    Although it was inappropriate as she was not chunky at all. I remember examining her ass in a pair of jeans once to see if the name fitted and deciding it didn't. Examining by eye from a short distance away, not by feel.

    I don't know where the name came from. Alan Gilbertson used to generate names like that frequently, the only one of which I remember is "Suzie What's-on-Telly?" for Susan Watson-Taylor.

    To satisfy my curiosity I wondered if Alan was still around. He is, and here is his blog contact info: http://blog.gngcreative.com/?page_id=2.
