Steve--thanks for the update. You've certainly had an interesting and diverse life with the various jobs and locations. (I've had one job, one location.) A year with the Trappists sounds particularly interesting. You must have stories to tell about that. Have you done any writing yourself? You sound like you'd be a good one.

Thanks for the book tips. I'll check out Quinn's book. And I'll check Kevin's posts. I'm happy to talk to anyone who remembers our PC days. Since I have, like all of us, a selective memory it's good for me to know what others remember that I've forgotten or missed. I think it was Kevin who told me that there were quonset huts on Castle Hill prior to the housing projects. I checked that out and he's right. I have a dim, very dim, memory of them. I rode to the end of Castle Hill a few years ago. All changed, of course. Some luxury housing, no trace of the Pool or McMenimun's--although I did see a bar with that name in New Rochelle. Gone now, I think. Did I say anything to help you remember John's Paradise? I don't think many PC guys went there. I never saw anyone I knew there. But the name stuck with me. I always wanted to write about it.
