Hi Van, What is your e-mail address?
14th June 2005 12:00am
Van Blakeman (Joshua Tree, US) says...
And then within 5 minutes you found the answer and sent me an email. (I had found Doug, an old long lost friend online and his address, so I sent him a letter.
Three minutes later, I received an email from Emergency.com that a major earthquake had just hit not far from him. I hope the two were not connected.)

I'm plugging a spam trap in here (www.si20.com/femail.php). It should deep-sink any spam spiders that find their way here.

Some of your pages made me laugh, loved the one about forwarding the e-mails. Not that I am brilliant, but I figured that out myself after just a few weeks online receiving and forwarding the darn things... never once got a check from Bill Gates, lol. I'll be back!!

Wow Van! how amazing. I didn't get to check it all out! I take it you're married with kids in the high desert making web sites and programming for companies, having transformed yourself from a "second hand" shop. i still have two little parkay tables I got at your place. I remember lots of stuff about it, and you, and the awful fire! Where are you? And thanks for being in touch. Liz

Van Blakeman (Joshua Tree, US) says...
To explain to other readers: I rediscovered you, an old friend, online. You had published a story about a shop I owned long ago in another lifetime. Yes, I am married to Eileen whose current shop you can see by clicking on Cape Cod and then Sandwich which is where we live most of the time. You will also find her challenging a blizzard, climbing a mountain and playing with dogs in Joshua Tree – etc.. We occasionally get out to my land in CA where I roll up my sleeves and get to work (or not) ... Read More

HOWDY JUST WANTED TO SAY HI FROM THE BLAKEMANS IN VICTORIA BC CANADA. ALL THE PICTURES I HAVE SEEN OF THE "BLAKEMANS" WE ALL LOOK SO MUCH ALIKE! MY FAMILY WAS ORIGIANLLY FROM ENGLAND 1300 TO NOW AND SETTLED THE SOTHERN STATES IN THE EARLY EIGHTEEN HUNDREDS AND SOME DRIFTED NORTH. YOU WOULD BE SURPRIZED WHAT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU HIRE A FIRM TO LOOK UP THE BLAKEMAN NAME. WE SEEM TO BE ALL DISTANT RELITIVES!

maria Pfremmer (USAF, Germany) says...
nice web page. name is Maria (Blakeman) Pfremmer. Father was Wm. A. Blakeman, Grandfather Allen __ Blakeman. Great granddad was Lloyd Blakeman. We come from Illinois and Florida. I have one sister Lisa (Blakeman) Evans living in the MD area and my dad's brother lives in Jupiter, FL. I am currently overseas in Germany. Followed my father's steps into the USAF and have been in Germany ever since. Not a whole lot of the Allen Blakeman line left.

Van Blakeman (East Sandwich, US) says...
Yes, the male Blakemans seem to be a dying breed. I have 2 daughters, Darby & Brianny, so I'm the end of this line. However, Fred Blakeman, my uncle, has a couple of sons. He also was a flier, Navy, as was his father, my grandfather, Tom Blakeman, said to be a daredevel flier who taught during WW1, I think (could have been his brother). Then I was in the 3rd Marine Air Wing at El Toro, but in electronics. Notice also Russell a few messages down, USAF. I guess the Blakemans tend to be ... Read More

Darby Blakeman (US) says...
Hi Dad! Finally online again, don't have an address yet, tell you when I do. Have'nt looked at the site yet, but with all the digital pictures you took of Bri and i the last few times we saw you, I sure as heck hope you put some better pictures of your daughters on it! We've got images to uphold! Sure it looks awesome regardless. Talk to you soon. Luv, Darby

Very nice wedding photos - yes, you did this much too soon - you should have waited a couple more years!!!!! Nice to hear from you.

This message is a response to an email I sent to wedding guests (for whom I have an email address) on 9/15/03, a couple years after the wedding, in which I said: Just wanted to let you know that I got all of our wedding shots up there. I hope nobody feels that I did this too quickly. Go to my site and click on us top center. Then in the wedding page click on the center image to open the gallery. If you've got DSL or cable or such, then you're doing fine. If not, then you might take ... Read More

Russell H Blakeman (Clarkson KY, US) says...
Hello from Clarkson, KY from a Chicago born and raised Blakeman now retired from the USAF since 95 here. I don't yet have a family website but plan one at my business site of http://www.rbcsweb.net (will likely be a subnet of http://blakeman.rbcsweb.net soon ). Nice page Van.

Van Blakeman (East Sandwich, US) says...
Nice clean setup Russ. I like it. Good luck with your business and with trying to determine what to do with life now that you are grounded. :)
7th September 2003 12:01am
Russell H Blakeman (Clarkson KY, US) says...
Actually un-grounded in a different sense - had I known I had this much ability to do what I wanted I would have gotten out before but I did like the 20 I spent in the USAF and I do enjoy having the retirement $$ that cover my bills even if I don't do anything else. A lot to do yet, have been spending a lot of time getting some of my clients switched over to my server and off the rip-off local webhosts. Should be ale to work on my own soon. Fall is here so mowing all of this thick Ky ... Read More

How did you get this link to produce the doc
I want to produce the same doc in order to compare
22nd October 2002 12:00am
Van Blakeman (East Sandwich, US) says...
Hi Mike, I'm not exactly sure about which link and doc you mean. If you are referring to the link that allows people to leave messages, then you would go to www.guestcity.com to set it up. However, I suspect that is not what you are talking about. I have perhaps close to 1000 documents of various sorts online. I plugged the message handler into some where I thought it might be useful, but when I receive a message, I have no way of knowing which page it came from. So, if you would give me ... Read More

Brianny (Cape Cod, US) says...
Dad- I think it's time for new (actually flattering) pictures of your daughters!!!
25th February 2002 12:00am
Van Blakeman (Joshua Tree, US) says...
Done!
To explain: after 9/11, your lovely smiling faces just didn't go, so I took some somber shots of you and put them up there - as you know; just explaining for the sake of others."
