Thanks Craig,

I still question joining FB. Just today, I read that the NSA is not only spying on Americans using FB, but have been
using "Angry Bird" aps to spy on people as well.

My daughter, Heather Jane is a senior designer for K'NEX. Her company is maufacturing Angry Bird toys, which she designed. Although the plastic parts are made in Hatfield. PA, they are sent to China to be packaged, boxed and shipped to over 30 countries world wide. Could micro GPS chips be enbedded in some of the Angry Bird parts?

As the saying goes, "Just because your paranoid dosen't mean they aren't out to get you".

My first semester at FC was in the fall of 1970. Rob, my then wife Karen and I lived at Frost. I was told that we were the first married couple with a chid to live on FC campus. The daily walk up the hill with wife and child on my back was a real challenge. We had to eat all three meals in the FC dinning hall, we had no kithchen in are room at Frost. Karen and Rob would hold up in the dinning hall while I attended classes. If Karen wanted to do something without Rob there were always many students around that loved watching over Rob and playing games with him. He was part of the bigger family, Franconia Collge, it was wonderful!

Heather Jane was born in May of 1972, when I was on outreach at Sryacuse University studing 3D design, anatomy, metalworking, engineering and computer science. Courses that augmented my studies at FC.

Beginning in the fall of 1972, Heather Jane stayed at home with her mother while we all lived at Row's Motor Court in Bethlehem until I graduated in May 1973. During that time Heather Jane was a very sick little girl. Thanks to the doctors and medical staff at Mary Hitchcock Hospital at Dartmoth University her life was saved.

My son Rob and I would drive my little red Toyota wagon over the mountain to school. Rob held the honor of being the youngest student at FC. He attended Jill Botstein's Kidder Garden. Rob, is now an Operations Manager for engineering company that installs and maintains HVAC instrumentation in hospitals, labs, and schools. Thanks to Rob and his wife I have a beuatiful and talented 13 year old grand-daughter.

I believe we live very close to one another, I live in Ambler. I'm not sure if we ever met in Franconia, but your name rings a bell. Maybe we met when you visited FC in the early 70's when I was student in Upper Division. In any case I think it would be fun to get together for a beer or lunch.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
