8/02/06: I just thought I’d pass along to everyone that I’ve continued to develop my new blog in the last few weeks. Actually, it’s kind of funny when you think about it because blogging is all that anyone talks about now, and our very own BOX SITE was actually a blog from the very beginning – we just didn’t know what to call it!Well anyhow, just to recap, I’ve now made a more conventional one. It’s a music blog that I call the Geezer Music Club. and in addition to the main site, it’s now also featured on a website called blogcritics.org. That’s a site that over 100,000 people a day visit.Steve

7/14/06: From Brenda Raley:
“We are still here too! I’m still at Ivy Tech and John is still retired. John had eye surgery and has regained his sight in his left eye. My mother, who in January was diagnosed with Bone Cancer – Stage 4, is doing much better so I thank everyone for their concern and prayers. Sure would like to hear from everyone else too!”

As part of that email, I also passed along to everyone that I have a new place for them to visit. It’s a music blog that I put together, and it’s meant especially for people who like geezer music…but even if you don’t think that’s you, take a look – you might be surprised!

5/5/06: Just thought I’d report that Ken Boehm and I had one of our “half-way meetings” again earlier this week. We met in Hoopeston, Illinois, this time (last time was in Kentland, Indiana) and had a good lunch and even played a little pool! It was a good place to meet but was probably a little closer to me than it was to Ken. Maybe next year we’ll try a different town.

5/5/06: UPDATE – We have kind of let this website go for a while, but since there are occasional events or news about friends and ex co-workers, we will keep it going and continue to post those items. Please feel free to report any news you have and also to check this site occasionally. (note: to conserve space, some of the larger pictures have been removed, but all are available upon request.).

3/1/06 Excerpts from an email from Ken Boehm:
“… last Friday my good friend Kurt Nebel’s wife passed away from lung cancer…you may remember Kurt was the human resource person at Wabash and I.P. I know you met him and I know a lot of the folks in T.H. knew Kurt and liked him. He worked with us for 20 so years. His wife’s name was Joan Nebel and she passed on 2/24/06. If anyone would like to send him a card and do not have his address I can give it to you.* I know Brenda was close to Kurt and I am sure she has his address. If you need any info let me know.”
