Richard Simmons

Mostly I've been thinking of Richard Simmons. I've always wanted to be an inspirational speaker but I'm just not a bubbly person. He is such a great motivator.  Who else can get a room of total strangers to hop up and work out with him? I can't even get my boyfriend to toss around a flying disk with me. There is a gift to inspiring people.

I wish I was that outgoing. He is not afraid to say or do anything to get a laugh or make a point. He is always the center of attention in any crowd he is in. I think it would be wild to see him and Jim Carey in the same room, just to see who would pull focus.

Friends From High School

Here is a list of the people from the past that I think about a lot and have no idea what became of them:

1. Cindy Schilling, Moreno Valley High School, graduated about 1976
2. Barbara Crawford Moreno Valley High School, graduated about 1976
I knew she got married and I read in the paper she lost her 2 kids in a home fire.  But I tried to reach her and never did. She lived up the street from me in Sunnymead CA (which is now Moreno Valley).
 She has a sister named Robin, mother Nancy, father Paul.
3. Steve Webber  He didn't go to the same high school as me. He lived in Chino, CA and Azusa and worked for the carnival. I believe his sister was raising him but I don't remember her name. He was in the Order of Demolay. He joined the service and I lost touch with him.

First Post

How many people feel lonely? How many people feel like no one ever thinks of them? Sometimes I think of people from my past, before the Internet. I have no idea where they went to or what became of them.  And of course I think of people I've met since the Internet took off. Every day I think of friends and family, old and new but they don't know it.

So I thought, "Why not start a blog and mention the people I'm thinking of, and if possible put a link to their sites if I know of them."
