    Hey Reuben,

    I remember you well and would love to see an updated photo. Can't imagine you look any different.:thumbsup:

    Richard Forbes was great, as were most of the folks on lines at CC. I still miss that camaraderie in spite of all its pitfalls of politics, scn etc. In fact, of all the reunions I've been to over the past 5 years, the funnest one was Ellen Jones' with all the celebrity center oldies but goodies hugging and commiserating.

    Would be nice to again, all get together in person to chat . :happydance:

    Carolyn and Larry are gems and I'm happy to hear you're keeping in touch.

    Sounds like you had quite a ride after you left the confines... :omg:

    Hope to hear some of those stories here!

    I'm posting this here instead of sending a PM, because maybe other readers may have a similar problem and would like to know too.

    There are several ways to show a picture here: You can ...

    1. ... use it for your avatar - if it's size and measures fit the rules. Check the "Edit Avatar" option in your User Control page.

    2. ... create a photo album on ESMB and upload it there (different size and measures rules here) Again: check your User Control page.

    About the rules: The picture must not exceed the allowed width, height, or size in Bytes.

    3. ... Use a free image hosting service from the web. Basically, not many rules here, if any. Different services have different ways how they handle their uploads, but they will usually give you a permanent link to the PIC you uploaded. You can copy that link and paste it into one of your posts or PMs here.

    So basically, just upload it somewhere where it can be seen by anybody, and post the link wherever you want.

    Thank you for being helpful again Mr. Nobody. Maybe others will understand what you said, but if it had been written in greek I couldn't follow it any less. My user control page? Where's that? My free image hosting service. Hosting, does it bake cupcakes? Edit Avatar? Okay the last one to the spaceship is a rotten egg. And for what? To look at a fat ugly man. I'd like one of those cute animals, and when my confront goes up, I'll look for all the Captain Midnight's secret squadron codes you wrote about. Right now it's the icing on the Tower of Babal. Thanks anyway, Reuben

    Click on "Settings" in the upper right corner of the ESMB screen. That takes you to the User control page.

    Uhm... No, not really, no.
    If you want to show an image to your online friends, you need to upload it to a server on the net, from where it can be accessed from the net.

    One of the many available services who offer free image uploading is here:
    and they have a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) here:

    Once you've uploaded a picture to imageshack,they'll display a link (URL) which you can copy and paste into one of your posts here.

    Don't like ImageShack? Use your favorite search engine to one you like better.

    Your Avatar is a small picture that you can display with your username. See my guitar? That's my Avatar. See your User Control page for more information.

    Mr Nobody.....I didn't have to do all that. I just took a picture from the "My Pictures" section of my computer, sized it and uploaded it to ESMB for my avatar. I don't know how to do all that stuff with ImageShack and search engines that you talk about here either.

    Mr Rockaway is new to computers and doesn't know how to do a lot of "stuff".

    I shared a girl friend with Margaret George.

    other than money, how was she able to always have a stable of cute and , I mean, absolutely delicious, girl friends, to eat her snatch?

    personality, at least for me, was not her strong suit.

    To clarify, you are incorrect in your assumption: Richard died of cancer in the late 70s because as a kid, he and his friends had jumped the fence at the nuclear test area because they got a huge rush from the bombs going off. Exposure to unsafe amounts of radiation over a long period was what killed him.

    Margaret George, MAA at AOLA in the early 1970s

    During my stay at the Hubbard College of Scientology, I majored in cunilinguistics. Graduated Cum Laude.

    I spoke with Reuben on the phone. He told me more about Margaret George, that I hadn't known.

    She was from a Colonial family, the Tinkers, that came over on the Mayflower. Her money was old family money from the east coast.

    She drove a 'Vette, and was a dominating character to say the least.

    I knew her, and knew of her in the early 70s, when I lived across from AOLA in the Westlake Lanai apartments, on Westlake at 9th, across from both the LA org and AOLA. The girl, who was sharing my bed, when I was on OT 2 and 3, had quite recently been sharing a bed with Margaret George. My friend, Gail and I were young 20s. Margaret George was early 50s. Gail was gorgeous. Margaret's attitude (dyke) could stop a truck. (She has to be dead by now, otherwise, I would not be so blunt). There was a magazine, tobacco, candy and porn shop up on Alvarado that we used to frequent. There were never any judgmental or small minded people in the Scientology scene back then.

    Some girls danced in topless clubs, others hooked in Vegas, we all went to see x rated movies like Deep Throat, the Devil in Miss Jones, The Stewardesses, and Debbie Does Dallas in large groups.

    Truth or Dare was a great party game

    This was when Scientology was in a live and let live culture stage regarding sex of all stripes.

    Over in MacAthur Park at night, the gay Scientologists hooked up. One guy, Don, had a session from Dolores Stokes that became famous. She gave him a Dianetic R3R assist session for a sore throat. He told her that he always got sore throats after giving 20 or more blow jobs the night before.

    My wife did a promo tour with AOLA Clear #1. He took her to his apartment. Over the fireplace he had a large picture of himself dressed as a woman.

    John McMaster, Clear #1 was gay.

    It was a kinder gentler scientology.

    I like the 'Smirch of Sinusology', and some great amusing posts on here. My mate used to call it the church of giveusyourmoneygy because I seemed to spend most of my hard earned readies paying for books and training. He on the other hand paid a gym and got much better training there!
