About Us (New and Updated!)

We used to be an eclectic group of people living together who shared the same last name and had a terrible habit of watching long TV mystery serials. We still own an obscenely fancy coffee machine and routinely welcome unexpected guests who drop by to visit us. (Note: I, the primary administrator on this blog now, no longer watch movies/TV.)

We used to think about turning the front yard into a concrete slab for extra parking space, since we had so many drivers and routinely entertain large groups of people. Now it’s more plausible that it will be turned into an extended garden of organic vegetables, possibly some chicken coops.

Our family life used to resemble a sitcom, in which we were both the participating characters and the viewing audience. This actually hasn’t changed much except that the house is much quieter and we really only resemble a sitcom when we’re all together.

We used to be famous for doing things in a “BIG” way. Birthdays were pretty much equivalent to a space shuttle launch or the President’s inauguration. Now there are mixed opinions on whether or not we should even give gifts on birthdays, and the celebrations are usually pretty laid back since we’re all aging like fine wine (though sometimes birthdays include fine wine).

We still have a pretty cheesy tendency toward alliteration and other wordplay, especially puns. 🙂

  7. Hello to you.

    I am very much hoping that you may be able to help me. I am contacting anyone I can find with your Surname in my quest for some very important information.

    I am trying to research the life and times of my natural mother (Janet Rose). My enquiries have led me to attempt to find a certain person by the name of John Squicciarini, (or similar spelling) who may have known my Mother very well during his time in the U.S Air Force, and my Mother’s time in the Royal Air Force. This was during the late 1960’s.

    I believe my Mother was based at High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire (England). I also believe John was based at a place by the name of Nap Hill (or Knap Hill) also in southern England.

    They definitely knew each other in 1969, but I believe he returned to the United States soon after, but may have kept in touch with her for several years.

    I think he had family, or even came from, Long Island, New York and will probably be in his 60’s by now.

    So could you please reply to this message if you know someone in your family that may fit this description, but also reply to confirm that you do not know of anybody.

    I am only after some information to piece together some past events. I am in no way financially motivated, nor am I someone with a grudge to bear. I will not be asking for a down payment to guarantee a fake lottery prize or anything silly or sinister like that. I do, however, feel that time is passing by faster by the year, and I really do need to “fill in the blanks” in my Mother’s early life before it becomes too late.

    Please help me out in any way that you can.
    Kind regards,
    Simon Rose.
