I just noticed this on the homepage ( don't often go there) and thought it might be of interest to new members. it doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere except there.

Did the 'expert' ever provide any help to the lady who was looking for her mother?

GlitterBaby

GlitterBaby Report 18 Jun 2013 21:54

Good question Reggie.

I was a bit surprised that there was no mention in announcements or on the FB page, given that there may well be newly joined members following 'LLF' last night.

I don't think I have any questions for AA myself though, if the best here have tried and not succeeded to find the elusive Harriett Louisa ( see my researching box) then I don't think even an expert expert will find her ;-)

Looks as if most of the questions would be better posted on the boards.

This man has been on GR every Tuesday for 10 years that I know of................never heard of any 'eureka' moments resulting from contact with him

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 18 Jun 2013 22:20

Thought it was one Tuesday a month?

From what I've seen in the past he can get a bit shirty if he doesn't like the comments made.

Looking at his responses tonight I reckon that collectively we could give him a run for his money.

Reggie

Reggie Report 18 Jun 2013 22:23

MC.....you're right, of course.

It is monthly, not weekly.

And he is known to be a bit of a prima donna......................doesn't like to be challenged...........or picked up on mistakes

Cynthia

Cynthia Report 18 Jun 2013 22:30

I asked him to remind members of the help given by members on here and his reply....."Absolutely". I think he's only mentioned it to one person though.

SylviaInCanada

SylviaInCanada Report 18 Jun 2013 22:59

very vague responses, though .....................


we could certainly do much better on this side .............


..................... and for free :-D


I do sometimes wonder if he sends pms to tout his business ;-)

Cynthia Report 19 Jun 2013 16:36

Reggie, did you mean the question I asked him last month - re Evelyn's thread?


If so, no he didn't. He made some suggestions which we had covered a long time ago. :-(

Reggie

Reggie Report 19 Jun 2013 22:28

Yes, Cynthia, that was the one.

I didn't think he'd come up with anything...he seems singularly inept

'Chocolate fireguard' comes to mind...................
