Subject: Reunion from the past

Hello,
we would love you to attend our reunion,who are we .We are a group of older generation pensioners who grew up on a council estate in London during the second world war.We have spread our wings all over the world and this will be our fourth reunion ,once again having a sell out.We pride ourselves that we survived a world war came thru poverty and went on to make something of ourselves and raise our children to hold their heads high and be proud of where we came from .Our Reunion will be held on Saturday 26th September 2009 at the Perivale community club at the bottom of Horsendon Hill Midx. The council estate we all came from was called the Cuckoo estate Hanwell W.7.We call ourselves Cuckooites and we number in the hundreds check us out on our world wide website   
 
I am the editor of this website and I live in Seattle Wash .U S A.I left London when I was 24 years old I am now 71 and I will be attending and organizing with help from our group this our fourth Reunion.If you are interested in a real make you feel good story of a group of older generation who found each other after being apart for over fifty years you will find a great story of human interest here.
Thanks Tommy Higginbottom     editor@cuckooites.org

That was a nice bit of promotion Tom, I hope it draws a few in.

I agree with Jim,it would be nice just for once, that ordinary folk are in the limelight and not these so called STARS.They cannot do worse than to come and film a GOOD FEEL FACTOR.

Sorry to say the B B C did not bother getting back to me,seems they would rather report bad news than a happy story,O well we tried.
