Jeffery Coffin
 
 
Article by  Susan Kealey

Our speaker was Jeffery Coffin. Jeff is originally from from Bar Harbor and grew up in Utah. He became wealthy at a young age by buying and selling companies. He got to a point where he was unhappy and ready to die. The desert called to him so he liquidated assets, sold companies, gave assets away and set out for the desert. After 28 days with very little water or food and a bird “yelling” at him, something clicked. He threw a rock at the bird, hit it. and devoured it. He was 100 miles from civilization and still felt embarrassed by that act. It was a turning point. That night he realized he wanted to live, but was still done with civilization.

As time went on, he discovered beetles were tasty. Stalking wild horses led him to water holes and wildlife. He made it a point to not stay in one place more than two weeks at a time as a way to diminish his impact on the environment. He prepared for the future by grinding dried crickets into powder to save and use for protein.

Robert Bentley and Everyday Miracles
 
Article by  Stacy Trevenon
Photos by: (no photos available)
 
Irwin Cohen introduced speaker Robert Bentley, who spoke of "Miracle at Kensington Palace," a biographical booklet he had written and of which he passed copies around. The booklet begins with these words by Bentley: "I write this not to brag but rather to share for the common good; heed and nurture others' dreams and in the process, joy and goodness will envelope your journey."
 
Bentley began his talk with his "Famous People I've Encountered" list, copies of which he had placed on our tables. This five-page list spanned England to America and beyond and many walks of life, including movie stars (Clint Eastwood,) other entertainment icons (Liberace,) political figures (President Dwight D. Eisenhower,) historical figures (Winston Churchill,) royalty (Queen Elizabeth II,) sports figures (Muhammad Ali,) names out of the headlines (Patty Hearst and her parents,) cultural icons (Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie,) beloved literary icons (James Herriot,) artists (Ansel Adams,) and many more. From Charles Schultz to George Schultz to names that gave us pause, like Hitler's cousin-- that's only a few.

Preparing for April Fool's Day!
Article by  Joe Brennan

Today's theme is April Fools Day Pranks
 
Irwin Cohen told of using his talent of voice impersonation to pull off his prank in Medical School. There was one renown professor teaching a critical course in the curriculum who had a pronounced eastern European accent, one whose impersonation Irwin had perfected. After the final exams and before their results were known, Irwin chose a few classmates and called them speaking as the professor. He told them that despite their good efforts they had failed the course. In the highly competitive med school environment this was crushing news and it caused quite a hubbub. 
 
 
Paul Wrubel told of submitting a big project paper to a class at Stanford about the transmission of the status of a remote tribe, the Dika Cond. Quoting Dr. Smedley-Jones, he described how the priests set up five stations for the initiation into the priesthood during the full moon in the monsoon season. The accolites chose their path and were taught to behave in their affected domain. They were required to carve a sacred picture containing the wisdom and icons of their discipline, many dropped out. The art created, the Morgana Stupa, was sent back to the priest village to be judged based on its art and interviews determining who received priest status.  He got an A although it didn't exist but was a myth of Paul's creation mirroring the PhD program! (The GI Bill provided his Phd).
