|Bio and Links|
I am 64 and retired from prison service administration. My interests are reading - history, biography, New Age, travel, novels - football (both soccer and rugby ), taking Peppa my partner Janet's black Labrador for walks in the hills and along our beautiful South Wales coast, museums, galleries, travel when I can afford it and genealogy which I find absolutely absorbing, and I have been fortunate to find my grand uncle John Roberts' family in Wisner, Cuming County, Nebraska and most of his descendants, and received clear photos from Findagrave.com of John and wife Annie's grave as well their children artillery veteran Walter John Roberts and little Adeline who died at just 8 years of age, which brings us all closer despite the long distance. My thanks and appreciation to the wonderful photo volunteer "hammered13" for her time and generous response. My current search is for John's brother David, who emigrated in March 1906.|

Brian, Thank you so much for your kind comments on my post. Sorry it took me so long to realize that I owe you a note. Always wanted to see your part of the world, as I have Irish, English, and Welsh in my background, although I fear I have waited too late to begin visiting faraway places. I hope this finds you happy and well, and best wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

|juergen mayer||RE: POPE BENEDICT XVI|
thank you. I agree about birth after these times. Bus as "young" German - unless I`m proud about Germany and the best in its history - I do never forget who began WW 2 (Stauffenberg thougt that it had be done because (!) he was a German patriot).
And for me as German its the message from history: never to tolerate the untolerable. If we himself had stopped "him" (you know - I don´t want, that a message is stopped again, this is silly and kinky here) before 1933, nobody had to die in a worldwar. In a different sight I look on WW 1 - I think, that not only Germany and its partners were responsible for it.
"Never tolerate the untolerable". This is the reason for what I wrote about Islamism. The problem in Germany and with the Gerrmans is, that they are walking from one extreme to another. First the things we know after 1933 (NOT only after 1939!) and today - sorry - we tolerate ALL because of false reception of history. Or not learning about. We tolerate this people who, at first, when they ever would come into power, will end our freedom to think, write, communicate etc. This had to be the lection especially for a German, I think. What do you think about?
I would be pleased, if you send a postcard from Cornwall to: Mr. Jürgen Mayer, Scillawaldstrasse 37, D-70378 Stuttgart, Germany.
I left a flower for Audrey Hepburn. The most beautiful lady and impressive in al ways.

You are welcome Brian, it was my honor...Blessings and ((Hugs)) sent to you and your family and loved ones~*~*~*~
|juergen mayer||Arthur, Du Maurier, BenedictusPP|
thank you very much! The message with Daphne du Maurier was that one, which was to be "examinded"! i thought that Cornwall was not far away from your residence. Can you imagine why this message was hold back? About Tintagel and King Arthur I´m well informed.
Obama: first, I appreciated him. Later I was very disappointed about his indifferent (to say the best!) opinion concerning a mosque on Ground Zero. In my opinion, the Islamists are the new Fascist, but even more dangerous (!), because they are present all around the world.
EJ I saw personally as ayoung man, when it was celebrated his 90. birthday in Stuttgart´s ("Neues Schloß" = new castle) and I attended this ceremony. Never forgotten!
When you visit Bavaria next time, visit Marktl near Passau, birthplace of our wonderful Pope Benedictus XVI. (I hope, you`ll not bad-minded about me, when I criticise the newspapers in England after his election: the uniform he was opressed to wear of the "Reichsarbeitsdienst" - it was not his choice to do so. We have to judge every human seperate, and we must judge the time and place, which he has to live, and which he had no way to escape. I hope, you agree. Benedict is not only a great theologist, but an impressive intellectual. I agreed very well with him, when he, visiting your country some months before, spoke in a sensible way about the crimes the Nazis did (Coventry for example).
A long message -in poor English again, I hope you excuse.

Hi Brian, you are very welcome! Rosie
|purple-lady||RE: GREETINGS FROM WET WALES|
Hello & it is nice hearing from U & my time on Findagrave has been sparse for several weeks due to LAPTOP computer problems. Oh, how these computers rule our lives. hahaha. Well, I guess UR weather isn't very nice either. Missouri has had terrible tornadoes, losing so many lives & demolishing towns. Thankfully, where I live in the city, was spared. Now it's just hot, hot, hot.
May UR vacation be restful, fun-filled with plenty of pleasant memories that you can cherish forever. xoxo
|juergen mayer||Virtual Cemetery|
I visited your "virtual cemetery" - very interesting. Claus Stauffenberg has absolved the same school in Stuttgart, as I did. He is unforgotten there.
Lincoln and FDR. What do you think about Chester A. Arthur? A fascinating man, the most independent and therefore (!) the most underrated President. The greatest surprise is his "transition" into an competent leader from the first day in office. His story is told by Thomas C. Reeves ("Gentleman Boss").
(my message some minutes before was taken under "examination". Don´t know why. Hope it will be sent to you.)
