I was hunting for information about books when I was accidentally caught in here. And although I don't know you, these pages were worth reading.

Thanks for that Daniel. However, messages I receive with ads for internet pharmacies or porn sites attached are always accepted with a bucket of salt - oh, and they get their links to external sites removed too! This is an ad-free zone you know!

Just wanted to say that your website is AMAZING! I was browsing the web just for fun, to have a look at some good websites as it helps me in work. Well, I'd be proud to have a website like yours - its very useful and well-designed. So go ahead, and continue to make the web better!

26th October 2003

response:

Thanks ever so much for your vote of confidence Rufat! You can show your appreciation further by buying my first novel when it's published - in fact, if you've got time you could write it for me too!

Just thought I would say a quick hello from Honky. I have never signed a "guestbook" before, and as this is a period of many firsts for me, decided to say hi this way instead of sending you an email.

Sorry to hear you were down last weekend, if it makes you feel any better, I was too!

See you soon I hope.

Are you impressed that despite being rather drunk, I still managed to remember your site address?! I haven't had time to read much yet (busy planning lessons for tomorrow's fun and games) but looking forward to it. I'll be in touch soon with the book and details about my booker book group. It was great to meet you, hope we stay in touch.

22nd September 2003

response:

Hello Jen

Yes, I'm very impressed! And, like I said in my email, it was very nice to meet you too. I look forward to receiving the book - you do realise that you've got no excuse to not send it as I've given you those stamps!

Hello, I stumbled upon your unique site after looking at WWOOF and I noticed that on the WWOOF site there are internships for English teachers, even if you aren't a "teacher." Right now I live in America (where I have been all of my life) and I am dying to travel and possibly live in Japan. Do you think this English teacher stuff is good, or would you rather go with the organic farming (never did it, I am a suburban girl.) I also have a fiance that I hope would jump at the chance to go with me... but we'll see.

I have NO money, I really never have. What can I do to make this all possible?

response:

Hello Jenny!

I thoroughly reccomend WWOOF. Through WWOOF you can obtain a great insight into Japanese culture from the inside. Your WWOOF hosts will provide you with bed and board, but no money, so you will need savings for the flight etc.

If you have a university degree (in any subject) then you can legally work in Japan as an English teacher. There are thousands of unqualified teachers in Japan, and I know of no-one who has had any problems obtaining work once there.I would reccomend that you do a short (4 week?) TESL/TEFL course before leaving the US though, many local colleges offer them.

You have NO money? Nor did I when I first left the UK to travel. I reccomend that you work very hard for a few months in the US, saving enough to cover your flight plus about $1000. Fix up a job beforehand (contact WWOOF Japan or get a hold of a copy of Work Your Way Around the World).

If you really do want to travel, the only thing stopping you is yourself. The only thing you have to do to make this dream become a reality is actually do it!

If you'd like more help please email me directly, that way I'm know I'm not just talking into the unknown depths of cyberspace!

I am a 39 year old lawyer, with enough student loan debt that I will have to work much harder than I planned just to be a good consumer. We were talking and you know we dont really want to be good consumers/ We want our children to be good, and I dont know if being a good consumer and leaving them a little inheritance is what they need to be good. I have a partner, she is my sisiter, she could work 6 months out of the year and I could work the other six, and take a 1k a month and travel the other six.

Good, good. Yes, I always wanted to be a good consumer too...

Hello from Virginia! I happened upon this sight and found alot of new pics. Gave me some great memories and flashbacks. A bit of reminder that time with no hair! Can anyone figure why I am scared to get haircuts? I would love to get in touch with folks. <click here for Chris's email address>

Hope everyone is well!

response:

hello Chris, long time no speak (6 years I think)! I'm glad that you enjoyed my Camp Jened photos... what a great, mad, crazy, wonderful summer (or in your case summerS) that was / they were. I've also lost touch with most Jenedies; I remember not many people had email addresses in those days. I've put your email address on a page that doesn't get so many hits so you don't get too much spam. Talking about hair: it was at Jened that I shaved all my hair off for the first time - and since then, every six weeks I've repeated the process... until now! Recently I decided to grow my hair long, it's time for a change, how exciting! Take care x

I had to come back. Not only to regret about some linguistic mistakes in my earlier message, but also ask if I can use your "Snow White"-picture for my 4-year-old niece's Birthday invitation cards. You see, as we have watched about one hundred photos of Snow White, she said: "I want Snow White from that picture where she is with that Funny Hat Man and the Prince!!!

No problem! Feel free to use it! (oh, and I corrected your grammar!)

Just like the Beckham I have strict controls on my image rights, therefore you owe me a squillion pounds for those pics in the fiddlers. Nice site, will check it more when i'm in a 'random' mood.

response:

WOOP WOOP!! I may dance like a monkey but you can't deny that I for those few minutes I was star of the show! Bloody legs were killing the next day though. Mind you, that could have been due to the Vegan Chicken Leg infection I picked up at Miss Millies...

Caught in Tame Goes Wild? Bad luck! I bet it was that photo of me and Snow White at Tokyo Disneyland that did it! Thanks for your comment - feel free to return or send large stackes of cash to my home address.

Re: Pinch Punch, First of the Month, No Returns: Yes we say it. I was just about to write to the Times asking if anyone know the origins of it. A few people say it in Norfolk. My wife thought it was pickle and punch which is even more ridiculous but we have been put right now. Now I read your entry I suppose it was not a coincidence that I heard someone say in a pub in Herefordshire which convinced me we were not the only lunatics about. Big question is what are the origins of it? Does it bring us luck? should we carry on or will it be seen as the first sign of Dementia? I would love to hear from you.

25th July 2003

response:

Thanks for your message about first of the month! I must say I haven't heard "pickle and punch" before! Hmm, I'd like to believe that it does give us good luck. I must say though it was a lot more common when I was a child. In recent years I haven't heard anyone say it! Its origins must be out there on the internet somewhere, on one of those sites dedicated to the English language, not that I can think of any addresses right now!

I think I'm going to be a lot more alert on future 1st of the months, and perhaps drop loud hints to those around me such as "Oh Gosh, look, we'll have to change the calendar today!" to see if this sparks any reaction!

20+ Years later and still Frau von almen still brings shivers down my spine, not a lady to be messed with. This is a part of my life that I will never forget, 2 years I worked there and loved every minute, many friends were made, from many nations. I don't know if some of the original staff were still there, maybe 1 or 2 of the Spanish or Portuguese were still there, It's nice to know there was another Bloody idiot who risked life and limb working for that insane woman. We must chat more and compare notes.

25th July 2003

response:

I think I’m scarred for life by the experience – but what an experience it was! I understand that Frau von Almen is now living in Interlaken with what remains of those vicious Alsatians of hers. The new owners, Andreas and Sylvia von Almen are far more human. I hope to return one day – but not to work! I think the isoilation would really get to me if I tried to do a fifth season!

Did she used to fine you sfr10 if you wer caught eating an unwanted dessert? Did she used to take the head off the hot tap with a spanner so you couldn’t use it to wash the dishes? mad…! I guess you saw my photos of Scheidegg. If not, there’s several albums. just go to www.tamegoeswild.com/photos and you’ll find the links.

It’s weird to think that there are people up there right now in that creaky old building…

response:

Thankyou Jason, I really do appreciate your support. These things always happen for a reason, and I know that good will come of it... but it doesn't stop it bloody hurting! No, I'm feeling much better now. Just gotta get on with my life. Hopefully in a week or two I'll be up to starting The Daily Mumble again. Watch that space.

I can't believe that there's so many of us Tame's out there! As for how I have time to build this site - well, let's just say that two year sstranded up a Swiss Alp helped!

Hello Joseph.

I found your pics when I was surfing the web today. Wow! It brought so many memories flooding back. I worked at Camp Jened from 1989 to 1994. It was great seeing the pics.

Thanks for a trip on memory lane. :)

response:

I know what you mean - I often catch myself looking through my albums online! Glad to have brought back some happy memories for you.
