Here's another,

Anyone know the whereabouts of Ken Benson?

I went to school with him. We finished HS, and lost track.

You should know. That was your first hit, Paul Petersen: "She Can't Find Her Keys".

A very :merryx: to you. I take it that you don't like this season at all.

K. B. was a professional in the radio business at CJJC back some time ago.
And, as I stated was an old HS friend.

To take this thread as a "lost and found", I hope you find your keys,
did you look in the :northpole:

Gee... Sounds like someone got a lump of coal in his stocking.
This is the second 'what happened to' thread in as many days and it struck me as funny, nothing more.
I never worked in the Valley, so can't help you out (as you may have already deduced)
Happy New Year another dog, if, in fact, that IS your real name. :)

Reminds me of an old joke:

Q: How can you tell Ashlee Simpson might be at your front door?
A: She can't find the key and doesn't know where to come in.

You know, you're right, it does sound quite funny, two threads in as
many days. Maybe we should have a thread of this type.

As for names, some of us prefer to use our given names, others use "other" names.

I use "Another Dog". Happy 2011. :carol3:

You know someone in Parksville? I was over there about a month ago visiting a friend.
I might have even joined this board on his computer. I've had the keys since then, but thanks.

Hi, A.D. I worked with him at FV Broadcasters but haven't heard about him in years. Nice guy. I hope someone can help you locate him.

I'd suggest you check the same place your head seems to be but I imagine there's not much light in there.

Deduced from post #1 of your never-ending useless topic derailments.

I assume this is NOT who you're looking for?

Good to see you realize your info is useless as well Buckley.

AD knows it was posted in fun.

It must be frustrating to be you.

You never know... there might be people that I went to school with that I lost track of that are now famous or successful and I didn't even know it. More likely they're successful coke dealers, but a job's a job...

And yeah, it's pretty frustrating to be me, management at an expanding international entertainment provider only a year out of college, not sure how I can stand it!
