  1. Hi Karl,
    John Fisher here in Smithers B.C. (formerly S.W. Ontario). Frank and me just had an email exchange about my book, The Geography of My Life, which of course has a chapter about our year in the Perth, W.A. area. Great conversation with Frank de Jong! British Columbia with its NDP/Green coalition is fertile ground for George but as said in the talk it always seems to take a ‘Hail Mary!’ Keep up the good work! Maybe we will meet again someday!

  2. Hi John, my ole roommate!
    My father is writing his autobiography at the moment, I wish it had a chapter on George.
    I’m pleased you enjoyed the show with Frank, he really is one of the best.
