SU GANDOLFA Gift From The Sea"The sea does not reward those who are too
anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for
treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but

Anne Morrow LindberghJERRY KATZRE:Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damndest Thing by Jed McKennaThanks for sending this, Chuck. Jed seems like a cool guy. I sent them a review
and maybe they'll put it on the website. I'll see you in a couple of weeks. they
need jed at inner directions!

the children must be crying in the land where they let the children cry, and
tonight the stars'll be out, and don't you know that God is Pooh Bear? the

I just read the replies to the resident Hari Krishna's message

Three J's). Regardless what Little Paul says this is a great group.
Big Paul listens and Knows.
Bobby G.SARLOMira, who may not still be in this list, also used to belong to your cult (DLM). She says that the website of ex-members (www.ex-premie.org) was hacked and knocked off the net for a while recently. I just visited it and it's back, with 4 mirror sites to make it more difficult to knock out again. Rock on! We can only speculate as to who committed this perfidy.
