Reminder - and a new forum

Folks, Garth's quest for demographic completeness continues - please update your birth day and year details by commenting on the previous entry - "Garth's demographic database".

A few people have responded to Blog comments in a chatty sort of way... so I feel obligated to open a forum for the Classof75. It's a typical forum or bulletin board (for those used to that sort of thing) and it's currently unused - it's in test mode and unpublicised - except here. Please use the area called "classof75" - obviously. Just page down a little and you'll see it. So if you want to chat, comment, respond, start new topics or whatever, please do so. It's at

BTW, you don't need to register (however it'll suggest doing so). If you do register you get more features, like private messaging and polls. Anyway, it's easier to use than the blog, or more powerful - or both. It's worth a try!

Cheers Rob.

Garth's demographic database

Garth asked: "OK, I happen to have a very comprehensive list at work (and it could be worth LOTS to me if I ever happened to compromise my high moral standards and released contact details of some of the gals, or guys, as the case may be, in our year), but I digress .... I'm trying to work out who would have been the OLDEST and the YOUNGEST in our year, because I happen to know of a range from at least August 1957 babies through to (at last count) December 1958 babies.
With the exception of serial repeaters of course (i.e. those that joined us from years above), what sort of range do we have out there ?"

And RR admits to a November 4, 1957 day of birth. Any one else wish to join Garth's growing demographic database?

The long and winding Blog

Well I was proved wrong. There were more photos coming, and they duly arrived. However there are still more to come, methinks. So dig up your treasures, open your shoe boxes and get those old 1975-vintage pics scanned. Don't have a scanner - find one! Garth doesn't accept excuses and nor do I.

Well OK, there are some reasonable reasons to not scan. Perhaps you are a Luddite and it's against your faith. Or you caught your tie in one once and still bear the psychological scars. I know I do. Whatever. Do what you can.

Cheers, Rob.

Just maintenance and trimming around the edges

Folks, I suspect that the website has run its course for now. People are still looking at it - indeed 10-15 a day take a peek, but no new content is banging on my door, desperate to get in. If you do have something, don't wait, send it to me at

Otherwise I'll just perform routine maintenance and trimming around the edges for now. I thought it'd be nice if the thumbnail images faded out when the mouse wasn't over them, for example, so I added that feature to amuse myself, if no-one else.

Cheers, Rob.

2 new pics added

It's true - 2 new pics have arrived from Graham Davis. There must be
many more photos out there from '75 - any chance of scanning and sending
some our way?? Alternatively, how about a "now" shot?

The loneliness of the long distance Blogger

OK, so we have a venue. We have some pictures. Now we need some vibe! Anyone got some viiiibe? We need more pictures; new pics, old pics, any pics! Stories! Laughs! Gags! Whatever.

Nice weather today. Anyone like the poll?

Latest updates

OK folks, this weekend we have some new pix from Pat Davies (sorry Pat, your new surname escapes me - forgive me) and I have updated a few things. There are more words of description added below the pictures for starters, and some of you will have noticed (a) this blog and (b) the poll. The poll will change periodically, just for fun. Let me know what you'd like. We can also do more comprehensive surveys, but only data freaks like me would want to do that...

I can post news to the blog, and everyone (and I do mean everyone) can comment. (Garth, I can set it up so you can post to the blog, too, if that's useful.)

Cheers, Rob.

Class of 75 - start blogging now

What is a webpage for if it isn't to communicate? What good is communication that is just one-way? Sadly your standard webpage doesn't allow for interaction - that old 2-way street - and neither will this blog! Well, it will allow some interaction - more that just a visitor's book allows anyway. Thus, in that spirit I present to you the power to comment - directly- upon these pages.

Feel free to say anything that relates to the Class of 75 re-union - or anything, really. Just remember that anyone could be lurking.

Cheers, Rob.
