Hi there, David.
Thanks for your response. I just want to confirm - was it Joseph or was it Raymond who passed away? (The first msg said that Joseph had died, the second msg says that Raymond had died. or did they BOTH die?)
Also, would you let me have Joe's telephone number, please, or his email address? Thanks.

Hi Nigel,
I am in contact with Joe Mecdeski.
He lives in Louisiana.
His brother Raymond passed away. Did not know Michael.

Sorry to hear about this, but he's done his bit and gone to God.
May he rest in peace.
I've updated the database.
David - do you have any contact info for the Mekdessie guy (there apparently were 3 of them - Joseph, Michael and Raymond) and we'd sure like to know what's going on with them.
Thanks for the note, guys.

Well we did put out the call, it took some time, but if you wait long enough, some thing will happen.
Yes I am believer, so what I read, do not shock me.
You asked my brother and your prays were heard.
You know that you are on a sacred site, right ?
God Bless Glen

First of all I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2009 with good health and lots of luck.
Thank you once more for your continuous and effective efforts to keep us old MSB boys not only informed about one another but making all the possible arrangements to re-create old ties of friendship that last for a life time.
I was very glad to have been able to visit you and all the other MSB in February of this year upon my visit to Caracas. It is a very special sensation to get together with old friends, many of whom one hasn't seen for many many years and in spite of that one feels that the ties of friendship have not been affected in any way by the years.
Keep up the good work
Un abrazo

Hi Ladislao,
Hope you and your family are well.
We are okay here, not too cold but by Wednesday it will be colder.
Neil told me you asked for me so since is Christmas time, I wrote and also to wish you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BRIGHT AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009.
I was in Trinidad in September and had a good time.
I went to Mount St Benedict too, those were nice days in my brother time and I guess with you too when you were there.
Well take care

Hello, Anthony.
Thanks for the info.
I've added your name to the database and you therefore shall begin to receive emails from the Old Boys of Abbey School, scattered wherever we happen to exist on earth.
I have no way of telling you who will contact you, but in the meantime, would you please tell me what year/s you attended MSB and in which country you now live?
Thanks again.
Gregory - thanks too, for passing on my request to Anthony. I appreciate the help.

Hello Ladislao,
I have finally figured out how to share the photos from the Reunion.
They are in the most recent album on the website:
Please let me know if you have any difficulty viewing and downloading them.
PS: The latest statistic from the blog of your 2008 circulars shows that this week had 82 visitors. They viewed two pages, on average. That probably means that the visitors came to the website on average once every two weeks. They were looking at the two circulars they had missed. That means that possibly 160 different persons visit the site every two weeks. Congratulations!

Continuing to reflect on unique aspects that I experienced at MSB, the topic of food comes to mind:
* Seems that the quality was not "home" grade
* The soft drinks produced at the mount were not very good to my recollection; did like the orange flavor
* Buying freshly baked, hot bread from one of the brothers who baked it
* "Ketchup" sandwiches - putting ketchup on bread without anything else
* Holiday lunches when special meals were prepared; we always got apple cider and special desserts on those occasions
* Calaloo, roti and other Trinidadian food specialities and delicacies
* Buying candy from the little store ran by Joe Azar... remember Smarties and Cadbury chocolates
* Going to POS and heating hamburgers and banana splits at the counter of HILO?......... (do not remember the name of the supermarket)
* Peanut butter, honey and other food brought to the table by one of the boys from Trinidad..... hhmmm good!
* "Obtaining" mangoes, cocoa, oranges and grapefruit from the different groves around MSB
* Being able to get chocolate milk or an egg daily if your parents paid extra for it
* Sneaking out to the little store below the field to buy candies and other stuff
* Shaved ice with different liquid concentrate flavor options and condensed milk sold by Mr. Thomas and his wife at the field
* A special treat was to buy in POS on Saturday a rotisserie chicken which one would eat while watching the movie that evening....... amazing how many "friends" would surround you
* Buying ice cream and other stuff at the MSB store relatively close to the Guest House; do not remember what it was called.
* The very special occasions when different food booths or tents would be set up and the aroma of the various cuisines made your mouth water
* The special rice dish with all sorts of good things in it that we ate when we went to the beach; a kind of paella
(The shaved ice was placed in TENNIS ball containers, in the 1960s metal cans. Editor)
That is for now, till the next one

Season Greeting to all my Brothers.
May the Lord lift us up where we belong, where the Eagles cry on a mountain high.
Where the Knights of White Stones still fly. In our sacred, secret, private Club.
We celebrate the birth of our superstar, Jesus Christ.
May the Lord Bless and Protect all my Brothers and their families, in these challenging times we live.
Wishing all the best in the year to come, 2009.
This has been an inspirational year for me, and my gift to you, The Tales of White Stones.
Now the well is dry.
As promised, I have served and completed the year 2008, the realm and the Club.
Now I must step aside, so others may serve, in their way.
Of course I will always give my full support, in whatever way I can.
I must thank you all for your full support to me, in allowing me your time, and accepting the many emails that I would send, the good and bad ones.
Of the just under 200 old boys on my site, I think I have only lost about 5 or 6, which is amazing, for the amount of emails I sent.
I remain yours Faithfully, until the End, a Friend, forever in your service,
Glen McKoy.

Hello Nigel and best wishes during this pre-xmas season 2008 and to a happy & healthy 2009!
I have re-read for the 2nd time the attached Mount boys listing in which I went ahead and made a few complementary corrections!
How ever, again the mischievous Goddard boys were left out completely and I went ahead and left as is without adding our names but I´m sure that Donald and Christian as my self as well, are most grateful for the hard work that you and Ladislao put into the referred list and update messages that we rec´v & thank you for sharing!!
Well my dear friend, as I write from a very distressed country (Venezuela), where I still live, our prayers go out to all of those unfortunate people living under dictatorial regimes; plus our best Christmas wishes go out to all of the Mount boys and their families,
Merry Christmas,

Hi Nigel & Ladislao,
Many thanks for your kind words about growing old gracefully.!!!
I thought as you sent Ladislao the 3 photos of us from our trip, that a few more of both human and sear curiosity interest might also go down well in Ladislao 's circulars.
The people in all the three countries were just wonderful and we loved our three weeks there in each one.
One shot is from an orphanage we had asked to see.
The kids had never had chocolate before, did not know what a plane was to bring us there, or about Australia - a Kangaroo !! or a Koala !!! - or some had never seen a "white" person with such white hair before.!!
I hope they did not think of me as a ghost as most if not all the elders still seem to have black hair .... must find out that secret!!
We tried to take lots of toothbrushes - paste, books, pencils and crayons to colour, books of Australia with the animals, a huge 75 k. bag of rice, and some lollies / chocolates from Australia etc. etc., but at the end it all looked so small and pitiful for so many.
But we did our best.
The orphans come from parents who might have died in UXO 's or themselves were injured or just abandoned.
However they again were really happy and wonderful and gave us more pleasure than we probably gave them in our three hours there.
The man next to me is the chief and he runs the village orphanage.
A truly great experience for us.
One shot on a scooter is of a quite common means of transportation - check the number of people on it.
Two shots of bottles are supposed to be aphrodisiacs - needless to say I DID NOT try them in the rice whiskey bottles, all for sale of course.
But we did taste the rice whiskey on its own from the village still - potent to say the least without much of as flavour.
I took over 1 K in photos, so these are just a few.
Love and God Bless to all.

Thanks for the lovely pictures you sent us from Vietnam and Laos.
I'll add them to my collection, and it's nice to see how the years have treated you. . . growing old gracefully, I see.
Of course, not too many of us get to see that side of the world, but it sure looks green and beautiful.
I'm sure that the other OB's would like to see these as well, so I'm sending them to Ladislao for his eventual distribution.
Thanks too, for the brief summary of your life since 1958.
Keep well, and sincere regards to Gail and your kids.

Thank you for your continued work with MSB.
We wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
I will send you a copy of our Christmas Newsletter so you can see what's happening in our family.
Leary & Gillian
On the way home last night, we were listening to the radio when a newscaster called his little 91 year old granny to talk to her about the 'Holidays'.
He mentioned that he had noticed that Christmas has become so 'politically correct' that no mention of Christmas is made by most retailers, we now wish people 'Happy Holidays.'
His granny said she missed the Old Fashioned Christmas when everyone wished each other 'Merry Christmas'.
We thought about it and this year we will be making a conscious effort to wish everyone Merry Christmas...our way of saying that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
So we are asking our e-mail friends, if you agree with us, to please do the same.
And if you'll pass this on to your e-mail friends, and so on...maybe we can prevent one more treasured tradition from being lost in the sea of 'Political Correctness.

I think they recognise themselves.
They just do not have the courage to go to "comments" and to mention who they are.
Also, I suspect they do not want to trouble you by sending you their names.
Since Rinaldo is reading the Blog, and will be looking to see who responds to his comment, I shall place a "comment" asking him to send you a message so that he can be included in your Circular
You and yours have a happy Christmas too

Hello Ladislao,
The Blog of your Circulars does not get many comments, though we now average 12 visits per day.
Rinaldo Beretta-Piccoli is one of the first to leave a message.
It is below, in Spanish.
Perhaps, you may be able to post it in a Circular in due course.
It might encourage others to leave messages.
I encourage readers to use this mechanism to identify persons labelled "unknown" in the photographs.
All the best,

Caracas, 13 December 2008 No. 371


Dear Friends,

I have not received further news on the REUNION 2008, so back to the old emails.

I am reading Novembers email, so those who have written shall see their emails in the Circular.

Tim Mew called me a few weeks ago through SKYPE, we had a nice and long conversation.

He suggested that all of us should get into SKYPE, so please read on.


Tim Mew MHC

Fecha6 de noviembre de 2008 20:10

Hi Ladislao,

Here is the web site for any MSB ex student to use if they wish to down load and use Skype to talk.

One has to select a Skype name for use, with mine being "timmewaussie".

This way one can search Skype for either a Skype name or via their emails, from there contact can be made one-way and the choice is up to the recipient to reply and share their details with you.

I chose to open an account with Skype via Visa for a small amount [say USD 20] with which I can call anyone on their normal phone landline.

When this falls below a certain $ value, I have elected for an automatic top-up of $20.00 again to keep a credit, but this choice is individual.

The costs vary from country to country, but are always rather inexpensive, eg. my phone call to Venezuela was only $0.04 per minute from Australia.

PC to PC is Free for both Skype users and broad band is better [than dial up] for reception and talking.

If your PC or Note Book has a video camera built in or a Camcorder attached you can see each other.

Or at least one of the two on the Computers if only one camera.

If I go to Skype on-line and wish to talk to a friend, who is not on-line with Skype, I usually call their Telephone and if at home they go on to the computer to talk free.

I transfer my call from the telephone to a new Sykpe call.

It can be a very nice way of keeping in touch with and directly talking to one's old class mates, rather than only use emails or faxes etc.

One can have a laugh, share a joke, answer questions directly, tell each other about families, or "getting old" and reminisce about past days together, whilst sharing the present.

I hope when you have the chance, you can publish this email and encourage other MSB 's to join Skype.

Also when you have the chance, please send me any telephone numbers from my 1958 class friends in Venezuela and also any MSB members in Australia, particularly Melbourne.

Cheers for now and I thoroughly enjoyed our talk and my "surprise" call to you.

You are welcome.

Glad to have made your day!

Yes I remember Antonio Scannone very well.

Great and powerful swimmer.

Also remember that he was a smoker, which, sadly I think, eventually dashed his hopes of continuing in the swimming competitions.

He left the Mount before getting to Form 5.

Another guy I am trying to locate is "Piccoli Beretta".

Remember him? I forget his first name.

He was at the Mount for a short while also, around the same time as Raul Leoni was there.

What an extraordinary Photo Attila !!! ... you brought so many memories of faces, names and events .....

At last I have seen Antonio Scanone again !!! ...

Panamerican Champ in Butterfly Style, remember ??? ....

I had been looking for him for years in all Mount Photos ... but now - thanks to Fr. Benedict ("woosh") and you - we have his face again.

Antonio does not look as fat as I had remembered him.

He was such a great person, noble and kind and a great sense of humour.

I am honoured to have had him as a close friend during my Mount years.

Take care Attila !!!

Nice to hear from you and as always your visionary works, "keeping the Abbey Spirit alive", are always acknowledged at every Reunion.

Your visit to TT is long overdue, although we will not have a TT Reunion in 2009 a special banquet can be organised if you plan to visit and share the msbtunapuna story.

The flikr site will be upgraded to 1Mb soon for downloads and the collection of photos 03-08 will be posted, plus the CD from 07 & 08 reunion photos will also be mailed to you.

We discussed with Manuel Prada the possibility of the TT guys visiting Venezuela or Margarita - open for discussion - Usually there are low cost Easter charter tours from TT –

Will send the CD's next week.

Hola Giovani:

Que sorpresa tan grata. La verdada es que a traves de Ladislao y la Pagina web de los Mount "old farts" muchos de nosotros nos hemos encontrado.

Estoy en USA desde 1990 En ese ano cuando estuve trabajando en Maraven como

gerente de Geologia en Maracaibo,

What a pleasant surprise. The truth is that through Ladislao and the WEB page the older guys, lot of us have reencountered.

I am in the USA since 1990. That year when I worked in MARAVEN as manager of Goelogy inMaracaibo.

I looked into my crystal ball and it said to me: "get the fuck out of Venezuela because the future will be bien jodido".

So I took my family and moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I got a job at Louisiana State University as a petroleum researcher.

I'm still here and occasionally do some consulting work for Venezuela.

Christian lives in Oklahoma City and has been in the USA for the past 40 years.

Ese carajo tiene billete que jode y ya se jubilo.

Brian vive en Valencia, enviudo el ano pasado.

Se quiere ir para la mierda pero no se decide para donde irse.

Creo que esta pensando en Trinidad porque le encanta una negrita.

Urbano tambien se quiere ir de Venezuela, pero como no le gusta las negritas esta pensando en irse para Dinamarca.

Siempre te recordamos.

Sobre todo cuando ibamos para tu casa en Pertigalete.

Como estan tus padres? Por favor de nuestra parte le das muchisimos


Estoy en contacto con Urbano, Peter Morvey, Pradita y muchos otros de los Mount Boys.

Tambien tuve la grata sorpresa de un email de Csaba Jacobszen lo cual me contento muchisimo.

Que hay de la vida de Pepe Braggio? La mafia de Puerto La Cruz esta lentamente reaparenciendo.

Cada ano he ido para Venezuela o de negocios o de vacasiones.

Pero voy para Maracaibo y luego para Maragarita.

That guy has a lots of money, and has already retired.

Brian lives in Valencia, he is widowed.

Wants to leave but has not decided where.

I believe that he is thinking of going to TT because he likes a negrita.

Urbano also wants to leave Venezeula, but since he does not like negritas he is thinking of going to Dinamarca.

We remember you always.

Mainly when we went to your home in Pertigalete.

How are your parents?. Please give them our regards.

I am in touch with Urbano, Peter Morvay, Pradita and many other Mount Boys.

I had a nice surprise having received an email from Csaba Jakobszen, made me happy.

What about the life of Pepe Barggio? The mafia of Puerto La Cruz is slowly reappearing.

Every year I have travelled to Venezuela on business or vacations.

But I go to Maracaibo and then to Margarita.

I tend to stay out of Caracas as much as I can because I can't stand the traffic or the malandros.

Urbano gets angry with me because I don't call him.

But the truth is that everytime I'm there he is travelling somewhere.

After the "referendum"???? and after the situation returns to normal in

Venezuela, I will come down for a visit.

In the mean time, if you are in our neighbourhood you are more than welcome to come to my home.

Un abrazo, Donald
