Congragulations David & Robin! I wish I had known about your cupcakes in June, as we were in La Jolla for my son's basketball tournament. They played at USD and they go down there every year so I'll be sure to make a point to drop by with others if not sooner! Your website is wonderful and impressive. Good luck.

I met Robin at Cupcakes Squared today, apparently the CEO gets Saturdays off. They are a little hard to find, because Point Loma is kind of a patchwork community, so make sure you have good directions, but definitely worth the trip. I sampled both the chocolate squared and the not so red velvet cupcakes today and I can promise you I will be going back! Dave, you and Robin have a winner!



From:   Randy Laws                                                         (posted: 08/08/2009 - 12:32pm PDT)

Don't know if I can make it on September 25th, but since I live in San Diego, I'll stop by and sample the best cupcakes in the county. Congrats Dave! I also just signed up for Facebook, I'll have to ask my kids to show me how it works.

Jon Gutru.
Does anyone know what happened to him? He was the second boy I ever kissed and I never knew what happened to him after I saw that he had passed away on the other board. Also wondering what happened to Colleen Delaney? I dream of her so often. Peace.

I am not sure everyone knows just how much work you put in to make our 30 year reunion as awesome as it was.
All your hard work to make the Reunion a success almost makes growing old worth it.
You are the King!

Well thank you Robin and Juli. Yep, it was pretty sweet to have that article of my pops! Hey, everyone, Joe Mersola and I bumped into Ron Wollard at the UCLA/Tennessee football game at the Rose Bowl tonight. We briefly spoke to Ron and had a fun chat just before the game started outside isle 23. Ron still looks GREAT - like he should be suiting up and playing for the Bruins! We love you Ronnie... and I'm sure you loved our Bruins pounding on your clients' Vols and upsetting them in overtime! Ron now lives in Tennessee. :)

Also, last year I had two teenagers at JBHS and they introduced me to the world of MySpace. Now, I can't be the only "old fart" out there among us that has a MySpace profile.

"Hey there! I don't get to the site often but when I do, I sure enjoy looking back over the ol' memories. If anyone even remembers me.... My wife and I are now living in South Dakota.

The Cowsil Band will be playing this Saturday Night (March 4th), from 9:30pm to 1:00am at the Fox and Hound (on Ventura Blvd and near Vineland)! Soooooooooooo, if you feel like enjoying a SUPER TIME with friends, a wonderful dinner, and then dancing the night away... then join us! Whether we have a few friends come, or even a big crowd, we always a great time!!! Here is the deal... the Fox and Hound is not a big place and it WILL be packed out... and I mean PACKED OUT!

Just get there early and enjoy a meal with friends and then be ready to ROCK ON! I just loveeeeeeee their 1960's and 1970's music. It is like walking into a time warp...wait I can here it now.... 'Dah dah dah da... dah da... dah dah dah da da' (repeat)... 'I wanna live with a cinnamon girl, I could be happy the rest of my life... with a cinnamon girl... dah dah.dah dah da, dah dah da da...'   etc.   ;)   I can't wait!!!

"Hi everyone. Glad to see this site is still up and there are still new posts being added occasionally.
I was wondering if anyone knew where Wayne Walker is? The last time we emailed each other, he was in Oxnard, I think? That was many years ago. Does anyone have his contact info? Thanks!!
Tony, please keep me informed when you all are going to the Fox & Hound, OK? I could not make it the last time. Thanks so much!!"

"Just a mini update on my life. I am still married to the most wonderful person for 25 yrs, Bob Kline. We have 3 beautiful daughters. Amanda, who is 18, graduated in June from JBHS. Elizabeth is in 8th grade at Luther and Sarah is in 4th grade at Bret Harte. My husband and I purchased the home I grew up in on Valley Street in 1999. I am a corporate accountant for a company in Encino that owns and manages marinas around the U S. Bob is working for the school district and has seen many of you at the football games, as he does Security. I am still singing my heart out in our church choir. I have even done some community theater at our church. My oldest daughter and youngest have inherited the singing/acting gene. My middle daughter is in the jazz band at Luther, playing drums and percussion; she's voiced a desire to play the trumpet.   Anyway, I'm glad to see we have this site set up. Keep in touch."                June Stoddard Kline

Jerry was a great guy and a good friend for nearly 40 years, He will be missed.   -   Sincerely, Michael Marker "

"TIME TO ROCK!
Hey classmates... this is sorta last minute, but we just found out that the Cowsill band will be playing this Saturday night, January 14 at the Fox and Hound. As many of you may have heard, Barry Cowsill was found dead this past week in New Orleans (he died in Hurricane Katrina). Therefore, there will be a special tribute to him from the band. If you would like to come, get there early 7:30pm-ish. The band will come on to a full house at 9:30pm and we will rock the night away until 1am. I hope you can make it... last time we had almost 20 of us there. If this is too late of a notice... there will be a good chance they will be playing there in a couple weeks too. I hope to see you as we ROCK ON! :) "

"Hey Julie! Welcome HOME and back to California, girl!!!!   The Fox and Hound is on Ventura Blvd, in Studio City... We head there once or twice a month to rock out to the Cowsill band (the band we hired to play at our reunion). They will have you dancing all night long. Come and join us sometime, it will be GREAT to see you! Send me an e-mail and I'll let you know when they are playing again; or keep watching this message board! :) "

"I was surprised to find this board - I looked through the pictures, but recognized only two people. It's remarkable how much an affect the passage of time has on the human form. A brief synopsis of my life to this point, for the curious: Starting out as a sculptor, I spent a decade doing props and FX for commercials and one or two motion pictures. My interest in digital electronics led me to a second career in software development and industrial robotics, which in turn led me into computer game development where I led teams of programmers on several commercial projects. This led, in turn, to yet another career, this time in feature motion picture animation. I'm currently at Rhythm & Hues. My web site is at http://kryptonians.net. I own, operate and maintain my own Linux server, and donate free web space and domain hosting to friends and those in need. My server is currently home to the Los Angeles Lightwave Users Group, among others. My most recent marriage is of 12 years to my wife Lisa. We have a son named Charlie, who is seven at this writing and the centerpiece of my life."

"I just discovered this site - Wow - did this bring back many memories. I am sorry I missed the reunion! But, I am thoroughly enjoying the pictures. I wish there were name labels associated with each of them (it's been too long for me to recognize you all).

After high school graduation, I floundered for a few years before I finally discovered the great world of computers and formal education (I am close to completing my Master of Management degree). I am currently working as an IT Project Manager at NASA Dryden, located at Edwards Air Force Base (northeast of Los Angeles).

Happy Holidays to you all!"

"Hey Classmates: The REUNION ROLLS ON!.... Last Saturday night a few of your JBHS 1975 classmates met at a club in studio city to eat dinner and dance the night away once again with the Cowsill Band! Classmates who attended were: Joe Mersola, Vicki Gibbs, Tim Milner, Barbara Garay, Patti Ginnetti, Karen Lowe, John Faber, Kirk Morales (JBHS Class of 1976), Tony De Felicis and many of our spouses. All together, there were 16 of us there throughout the night. Therefore, if you are interested in joining us in one of these dinner/dance evenings, just send me an e-mail and I'll let you know when the next "dance night" date is...  It really is a ton of fun! Oh, I also just wanted to thank my JBHS friends who unexpectedly presented me with a real leather "Biker jacket and accessories" this past Saturday night... they said it was so I wouldn't have to borrow a leather biker jacket for future "Born To be Wild" singing and dance performances!   lol... you guys are too much!!!!"

I am living here in Ventura with my family and my grandchildren close by. I am a labor and delivery RN and I still get out in the water once in awhile. If I can figure out how to do it I will post a picture so you can see how awesome I look! Ha! Hope to get on the notification list for next time!"

"Hey Classmates! Below are two messages recent messages that I received from teacher/coaches Ken Tada and Merle Stone. I thought I would share them with you. It was sure neat to honor these men and show our appreciation for their love and commitment to our class as a whole and also to us as individuals. These guys are men of goodness and integrity! I want to thank you for giving of your financial resources in order to allow us to touch them in a very special way! We did GOOD!" -Tony

"Hey JBHS Class of 1975! I just wanted to thank you inviting me to the Class of 1975 30-Year Reunion. I am sure glad I was able to attend and see so many old friends. Thanks for being so sensitive, kind and generous to me and my fellow teachers and coaches, it showed a lot of class! I was telling my wife Joanie today, that a really special part of your reunion was how you recognized those from your class who had passed on. It was a wonderful part of your program. Joanie knows the Cowsills very well in terms of their music and has even memorized a bunch of their songs. Well, I just wanted to say thank you!" - Sincerely, Ken Tada

"Dear Class of 1975! - Thank you so much for the gifts and memorial book of the 1974 11-1 championship football season. You kids are truly special men and women. Needless to say, my sons were impressed by your gifts and kind words of gratitude to me. Much love to you and everyone involved." - Merle Stone
