Message: The correct spelling was Gil Linders. He also had 2 other businesses in Hawthorne, but I only remember the TV repair shop on Hawthorne Blvd between El Segundo & Rosecrans. Gil Linders was a great source of Batman cards & Ugly Stickers, anybody remember Ugly Stickers?
Hey thanks for the information, Dan. I do remember the TV repair place too.

Message: Well, thank goodness that?s over. Now that we seem to have made it thru the ?70s guy?s criticisms of John?s ?Early 60s? website for not having enough of a group of familiar 70s people signed on to please the guy, I won?t need to continue that discussion..... Except maybe to say that it reminds me of a kid wandering into an open home (website) and immediately start criticizing the host for not having more kids his age there to play with. But, that is not for me to say so I won?t...... Except maybe to say that to some grown-ups this criticism and behavior while visiting another person?s ?home? may be considered rude and perhaps a little ill-mannered, but that has all been said and seems to be settled so I won?t continue the discussion..... Nope... Not necessary.... Lot?s of positive and informative HayTown things in John?s ?home? so no need to continue the discussion..... OK, having not said all that I have to admit that I enjoy reading feedback posted by ?70s Grads, and I have noticed many of them are always there to pick up the hard work and responsibility planning and coordinating events. Thanks.... Baxter
HEY, I LOVE'M ALL!!!

Message: Just got off the phone with David Beard, editor of ESQuarterly. The next issue will be titled "Hawthorne Days" and will be available in about 3 weeks. He needs a question answered by someone who lived around 119th and Kornblum in the 60s or 70s era. There was a "Mom and Pop" store on about 119th and Kornblum owned by Gil and Marge Linder or Lindner, called "Linder's Market" or "Lindner's Market". Does anyone remember the correct spelling? Please don't Feedback and say "I THINK it was...". If you KNOW please let us know here.
Also please check out ESQuarterly.com for information on the "Hawthorne Days" issue. Go to the website and click on "ESQ News" then click on "Hawthorne Days" for the information.

Message: Actually a mpeg or avi file on Jim's site would be great and show people how to make a nice looking preztel. Simple to do too. I will be ordering a box to try. I love the smell of fresh preztels in the morning.
OK Uncle Buck, we need a movie.....

Message: John, there's an intriguing (to my mind) piece in the LAWeekly this week on the old neighborhood.
Never mind the usual Beach Boys stuff, which is not very fluffy. But do any of you recall the water-heater launch circa 1966 mentioned at the end of this piece? This anecdote looks a tad spurious to me.
Hey joseph, very cool article. It BTW, was written by Cougartown's own HHS72 Suzy Beal. Not sure I ever heard of the great hot water heater incident either, but I gotta believe it, as it did happen in Hawthorne. Thanks for the story.

Message: JB, no fetish for males though I'm not afraid to give a hug to a male or female. At the picnic, I tried to make the rounds and talk to everyone in the time I was there, but as a single parent with two athletic boys, I had to use my time wisely in order get back to their soccer games. I'd like to say thanks to the picnic committee for all their hard work. Great Job. When is the next Cruise Night?
Hey Wade, Glad you were there and the next Cruise Night will be probably be February or March. Hope to see you then.

And hopefully Wade has no fettish for me or any other guy. I know quite a few girls that had a fettish for me though. And Mr. Bickers will be visiting Kona. If so tell me.
Tell you?? So you can get away again? Not on your life, Keith. We're going to get a picture of you this time.

Message: Sorry it took awhile to respond, but I had a great time at the picnic and seeing everyone. Merry Richards and her body guard brothers all looked great. Good to see you!! I was fortunate enough to have known a number of graduates from the 50's 60's and 70's from our dear old HHS and try to stay in touch as often as I can. Bud is right, the golf tourney has been a success and we are having more alum respond every year. I have been contacted by old and new alum who are wanting info on next years year's event and some are interested in getting together for a round of golf anytime they're around the O.C. I was out of State, is three miles off the coast internationa waters, and missed cruise night, but I'll do my best to make the next one. Mo let me know!! Dom excellent reunion info on your class, how is the Latin? JB you are a gracious host and the Bierman Sisters, thank you for you support. Bill Sloey, you could still knock somebody out of the broom closet. I'll let you know about Zeno.
My mom made it to Pikes Peak, I thought for sure she said PIK's on Haw Blvd. Way to go mom. Cougs, have a great day.
Hey Wade, I saw everyone you mentioned at the picnic and didn't even know you were there. Why didn't you introduce yourself? Do you have a Keith Jones fettish?

Hey Ed, please, if you have something to say about your roots please say it. Otherwise, please don't try to stir the masses. Because you will.

Message: Man you guys that went to good old Hawthorne High are tuff. You take a Hawthorne graduate from 1970, a guy that just got his first computer and batter and bruise him. You people didn?t even beat me down as much when I said Mike Love could sing. All he did was to ask where all of his 70?s classmates were. Of course you 70?s people were good, climbing out of the walls to get at poor Ed. John was right you did start a fire under your old classmates and now you are in touch with a good portion of them. Welcome to the internet Ed have fun. But then I went to Lawndale High what do I know?

Message: Man, I just went to the site Don put together for the class of 75'. Awesome. I looked at every picture you had on their and the phot album of the reunion. I looked at all the yearbook pics too. Really neat. I can't belive how many of that class I knew and were friends with. Jerry Rodman, Keivun Winters aoll looked different. Kevin Forbess and Terry Agnew looked just like in high school. Faelin Klein has to be taking some youth shots cause she does not look any different than in HS. She is stunning. Beth Santos looked great too. I would have liked to see Debbie Santos, I was in love with her in HS. My buddy Dennis Gonzalves looked great too as did ALbert Delgado. Ron Perly looked different. Tom Fowler stillhas the same smile. Does anyone know what Robert Armburst is doing nowadays. I wish our class would do something like that. Really took me down memory lane. Thanks Don good job.

City and State: boiling pit of acid
Message: Sweet fancy moses, what happened. Well, lets see, who signed up and who didn't show, Hmmmm? Anyway, woulda been on ctown earlier, but just got my first computer this year, they didn't have any of the black and white jobs where you had to get up and change things by yourself, with rabbit ears. Some harsh words spoken, but ed doesn't bruise, ed doesn't bleed, in fact. Ed answers only to Ed. I would only alienate those that didn't show up in the first place, cause the ones that did, knew I wasn't addressing them, so HA! Will have to check on V5 and V6, haven't a clue as to what that means, so I'm stuck in a rut there. As for progeny, a few hundred billion to address. Couldn't say much at the market, the zookeepers frowned on that, but was never, ever shy or quiet, in fact, I was always under the heel for talking too much to the customers. If it works, it works, and that's better than silence. Name: Don D. () on Tuesday, October 4, 2005 at 23:33:58

Message: Yes, perhaps some have been too hard on Ed. I understand how he feels, but as mentioned, there are several people from the '70's that participate and meet together through various functions. Sure, it would be nice if more of them would show up at cruise night but if not that is still ok because I have gotten to know some of the people from the 60's. We all went to the same school and have lots of memories we can share. There is always more to learn and sometimes the only way to remember particular parts of the past is to discuss our memories with others who have had similar experiences. BTW, Ed was helpful in providing some of his pictures for the Class of 75 website. If anyone else would like to contribute more photos from our 75th reunion (or a link to photos), let me know...
Thanks Don, You are one of the 70s people who show up at most every event. Thank you for that, and see you at the next one.

John, Thanks for the great musical offerings (links) at the top of the feedback page. Green Day!... pretty Hep...... Well, since you are featuring new music now, do you take requests? If so, I request "When I was Young" by Eric Burdon & The Animals... It's only been out for awhile...and it's easy to dance to.
Hey Carl, I'm sure someone will send it to me, as I really don't have EVERY song on the planet. Thanks to you too for sticking around and for being at the CT picnic, and Edward, ANOTHER one in your corner.

Message: Wow, I feel guilty. I sent in a little barb Ed's way and now I think he's bleeding! For the record, I have met Ed and he is a very nice guy! He is SO NICE he volunteered to help me and Sherry Peppers help Sharon Leach send out all those notices and invites to the picnic. (The job was HUGE.) He just stepped right up when the call went out. The REASON he did that is because he caught CT fever and those of you who've had it know how darn GOOD it feels! Seems he just wants to share the contagion. He also was able to locate some very dear people in his life and has experienced a joy you only know when you reconnect. Please come back and post in, my friend. Boy John, the legions are pretty protective aren't they? Like I always say, when you come to the next CT event, you have to BRING A FRIEND. Try to make them from the 70's.....
Thanks Sue, and if you all go back and read Edwards post, he was just trying to get all together, although I might have used different verbiage, the love was there. Come on back Edward, singlehandedly you've revived the Feedback page.

Ed did his job by getting your attention. He got you to contribute to the feedback page, just as I'm doing now. This question is for Jack who feels that Ed is alienating people from future Ctown events. Are you speaking for yourself or are you speaking for the masses? I'm nominating Ed Schatz for the "COUGARTOWN S--T STIRRER OF THE MONTH" award. Way to go ED!!!!
OK Edward, the tide is turning. Maybe we SHOULD implement that award.

Message: Thanks for the plug John. Everyone may not be as successful as you were. Just a suggestion for next time, roll the dough a little thinner and cross it twice then connect. I have been doing press releases today quoting food critic John Baker on how good our pretzels are. The LA Times has called twice trying to locate John Baker, food critic. I simply said 'Oh he's at large.' Their response was he can't be as large as Uncle Buck on this box. You win again John. Thanks!
Yeah I was running out of rolling space on my counter. Next time I'll roll them out longer.
