I like. Brings back memories Arnie.

Jeff ‘Brainiac’ Mann - :smiley:

He had his enemies but I thought he was definitely an asset to the thread.

I’d welcome him here…
I might not get into big debates with him… as I already did that, but he seems like a deep thinker… and that is always good to have around…

can someone find him?

I liked Bio too, despite the secret society thing of confidentiality. I could tell you all the secrets, but if you don’t have someone with a trained eye to watch over you, it’s still a perilous journey.

“Jeffmanngolfer”! Makes me wish I used my other e-mail address here: :wink:

AA - great idea…Thanks
I like the idea of re-visiting Lag’s posts off ISG… I have the ISG posts in book form also (printed out and in a folder) :smiley:
