Message: Hey John! I just had to let you know that my daughter, a junior at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, quoted you and Cougartown in a Linquistics paper she wrote during the fall semester! You were even #1 on her works cited page, being a Baker you must be used to being first. She did a Google search for surf slang and it took her straight to Cougartown! Just thought it would give you a laugh to know CT was a cited source for a very serious paper on the English language! Happy New Year - Be safe tonight!

Message: A COUGARTOWN sighting of sorts, I was finishing my 120th book read this year, THE LUST LIZARD OF MELANCHOLY COVE, by Christopher Moore. On page 245, a "PINK'S foot long with sauerkraut" was mentioned. During the last two years I've read 80511 pages and this is my first, in print, PINK'S sighting. I would think that anyone who lived closer should carry this information into "PINK'S" and be rewarded. Secondly, my grandson is a Marine Lnc. Corp stationed now in Cuba, thankfully its not Iraq. Doing for us so we can do what we do.

Message: Happy New Year to Cougars everywhere! Changes to Feedback Page look good - Thanks for your efforts. First kiss was before moving to Hawthorne - met a guy in uniform (Civil Air Patrol) when we were both in eighth grade at different schools. We were both helping our parents decorate for a dance at our church. We went to the movies a week or so later and kissed in the dark. I was always a sucker for a guy in uniform ...

Leif Enocksons 10th B-day party ,on his folks kitchen floor playing spin the bottle. I was as nervous as a gerbil at a gay pride parade, as her Dad Al was as big as a house and a cop to boot.

Message: John I love the new look to feedback. A great way to start a new year. About first kiss, 7th grade at Haw Inter, was it for me. It seems the kids that went to Eucalytpus were a little slow til they hit jr, high. Haw Inter was a hot bed of 1st, 2nd and 3rd kisses, Didn't everyone go to the plaza and make out a little, all the while trying not to let anyone see you were kissing. LOL Happy NEW YEAR to everyone.

Message: Happy New Year to the whole Cougar Community. My first kiss was with Patsy Haskell, my first girlfriend and next-door neighbor. Pat and I walked to school together many days to good ol' Eucalyptus School. Like many in Hawthorne we grew up in a fairly stable environment, attending school with our neighbors and friends from Kindergarten to Hawthorne Intermediate, on to HHS and then El Camino College. I haven't seen Pat in a long time but we still send Christmas cards and family photos. Best wishes to all my former Hawthorne neighbors--The Haskells, Gants, Hawkenberrys, Sartories, Records, Ennis', Berrys, Swinfords, Blazenskis and many others from the Burl Avenue/Inglewood Avenue block across the street from HHS.

Message: Hauoli Makahiki Hou to all my Cougar brothers and sisters. It has been 80+ here everyday this month except maybe 1 or 2. I can't believe how hot it is in winter, yet it snowed three times on top of Mauna Kea. Even the waves hit 15' here which is unheard of. What a month.

Message: The new format looks great JB! I am hoping everyone has a safe and joyous New Year. Been making some resolutions that I hope to carry out at least until February. I wish I could remember my first kiss and with whom, but I don't. I just know it was between the age of 13-16 years old. I do remember though that when my first ever boyfriend Phil put his arm around me in the sixth grade, I called him an animal. Poor guy.

Message: So with the change in font, does that mean the feedback page just shrank from 770 pages to 385 pages, and does that mean we can celebrate twice as many times for pages that end in double ought; Wait just a minute, my mid-60's brain tells me it might take twice as long 'til the next Fosters or Pink's (hot dogs, not the musical group) gathering of the tribe. How about a happening every fifty pages? Can you say "deligate" (tag your it), John? Happy New Year everyone (that is politically correct, yes?).

City & State: Seal Beach, CA
Message: Wow John, You have outdone yourself, this is really beautiful, thank you.
As for my first kiss, it was from my first boyfriend Bob Milazzo, we dated for a short time in the summer of 59', he was and is a sweet guy. I did have one boyfriend before Bob if you want to call him that, in the 6th. grade I went steady with Dennis Wilson, he broke up with me soon after I told him that I wouldn't kiss him.
My thoughts are with the Freeman family who lost their Dad on Christmas day.
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year, be careful out there. Cindy
