None unfortunaltely, although I attended the 2004 reunion. i would very luch like to gt back in touch with some of them, like karl new and Judy Sine and more.

School Memories:

the best and sweetest of my life. I got to know and to love Americans, I got a better education in some subjects, expecially science, than I ever had. I had coach Solari turn me into a man. Also i got introduced to certain activities, about which I will be silent, that have made my nights pleasant ever since.

Not really. From one point of view, every day is a little epiphany, on the other hand I never did accomplish very much, the only thing I can boast is that I was honest.

What's happening in my life now:

becoming a grandfather soon. Not that I am particulalry happy about that, for sure I don't feel like a grandfather, but my mirror tells me so. It used to be that my portrait was Homer Simpson, now I am moving over to Homer's father.

Pastimes & Hobbies:

A few, not that important. Used to play bridge, now i don't and advise against starting. It is a paranoical pastime, fit only for the lazy rich.

I'm still with the tunes of those times: Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane. I couldn't stand Bob Dylan then and I still dislike him now.

Favorite Books, Magazines, Movies, TV etc:

In books, I adore Michael Crichton and loath Dan Brown. I am lso a Stephen King fan. Movies taht i keep watching over and over are Fandango and the Blues Brothers.
I am a big fan of Desperate Housewives.
