    Born July 6, 1946, same day same year as Sylvester Stallone (I lurv Amuhcah!)

    Parents dubbed in 1954.

    Baptised July 30, 1958 at Orchard Beach, New York, was also one of 253,922 at Yankee Stadium.

    Put on probation for fornication in Sep 1967, the only 21 year old virgin in the whole world up till then.

    Stopped believing totally in April 1972. No-one would let me be, relatives, in-laws, elders at me day and night. Started smoking but they still wouldn't lay off. Engineered my demise by walking through grounds of District assembly with DF'd pal as he smoked a Castella, thrown out within a week, refused to attend hearing as I did not recognise the courts authority.

    Baptised in '82. Now aged 37. Not DF'd or Da'd. Is there anyone in particular you had in mind with this thread?!

    I was baptized 4 months after starting my study in 1994. Last meeting was early 99. Not DAed or DFed but in all honesty I could care less if that were to happen now.

    My parents began studying when I was 5.

    I was baptized in 1975.

    I was disfellowshipped in 1987.

    I still believed until I found information on the net in 1995.
