    Every time I see a list of all these donations I think of the poor Reges in the org:bigcry:

    Great, thanks very much. Looks like wonderful PR-fodder. Don't do any trespassing. Wouldn't there be real estate records that are public documents? If you can web some names someone might be able to dig up stuff.

    Real estate is becoming a much larger part of the scam. I guess the plan is to buy old beat up buildings and fix them up with free money and slave labor and then sell when the time comes. Pretty sick for all the people who get suckered in to donating for this.

    Are you sure?

    No money left in your account that might have been 'diverted' to a worthy cause by a hard-pressed Exec Council?

    Very interesting isn't it. Last night I was trying to think of why they would buy such a shithole. Good's free why not.

    :omg: :welcome: ANO!
    Me too!
    Good point! It took only 3 weeks to get the money back into my account that was diverted to the book campaign, before I could ask for it back. :D

    I also got an email today picturing a really beautiful corner building, that read: "We have a dream. And we are making it a reality. Because WE ARE THE IAS!. Attend the Inglewood Ideal Org Lauch Event! So, we will be soon be seeing more of the same for Inglewood.

    The Duggins are a surprize to me. They lost their son to cancer while on auditing lines at CCI. I can't remember if it was brain cancer or some sort of cancer in his back or spine. It was early on at CCI when I first got there, so it would have been about 92. He was about 18 I think. It was sad, because he was really a sweet guy.

    (I think it is Bob and Trish that are the parents).

    Whichever set it is, they do advertising - they own billboards. I think mostly in Europe. I cant remember. My memory kinda sucks. Some sort of billboard advertising.

    Ingelwood has been in the making for a number of years. It must be at least 4 years old by now. Carolyn Percy is the ED I think.

    My best friend in 1970 turns out to be just below the top of this list ! It would be nice to reminisce with anyone who remembers anything that happened at the San Diego mission / org from 1970 all through the 70's. I actually was responsible for helping my friend join. We took the initial courses and goofed around a bit, but his pedigree was way above mine, he got "on purpose" and I, mostly hanging around for the jokes, couldn't hack it. From what I gather, he's a lawyer into real estate, heavily involved in church dealings, still connected in San Diego after some forays around the country. No wonder he can donate a lot ! He's actually very successful by most standards. Scientology actually went well with his personality. That's another topic I'd like to see discussed: what nature / nurture personal qualities allow someone to THRIVE in something like scientology. Anyone remember anything about 1970's San Diego ? Thanks

    This is my first post so bear with me while I learn the system...

    Yes, I remember the '70s in San Diego. I was there. I see a few of my old friends and acquaintances on the list, and many familiar names from the old Adams Ave. Mission.
