Good afternoon WobblyBob. Did you sleep well?.
Good afternoon! I didn't actually. I was very restless. I go through phases of good sleep and bad sleep. You can probably imagine which it is at the moment :D Thanks for asking. Hope this Monday is treating you well :)

Hello everybody,

my name is Josef Garcia, I am 62 years old and live in Germany.

I have always been a great admirer of Charles Fort. His books were translated into German some years ago and I have been infected ever since.

I had the great fortune to meet the most famous German Charles Fort connoisseur and expert, Ulrich Magin...those were long and exciting nights.

Sorry my English is very bad, but luckily Google helps translating their great forum.

Many greetings
Josef Garcia

I always enjoy Ulrich's contributions to the Fortean Times, good to know he's a good bloke.

Maybe you did sign up but mislaid your username?

If so, and if you can remember it, there might indeed be long-lost nuggets of Fortean wisdom out there for you to reclaim. :)

Welcome (back?) to the forum!

If you'd previously registered prior to 2018, had never posted, and didn't pass through our renewal process following the autumn 2018 migration your account would have been deleted. If you had posted at least once your account would have been retired.

To be totally honest, it would have been that long ago that I don't even have access to the email account associated with it anymore so probably best just starting afresh :)

Hello and good day to you all

Only just joined the forum. Over the years have encountered some paranormal experiences from mysterious footsteps and a flying butter knife in a French farm house to seeing 'shadows' at an ex girlfriends house.

Very interested in the paranormal side but have a keen interest on all thing Fortean

Outside of these subjects I enjoy music, football, rugby and reading.

Look forward to chatting in time

Welcome on board – good to see a fellow sports fan! There are a few here but I think we're in the minority. Cycling, obviously, but I also follow football, rugby union (Bath), rugby league and Cricket (Somerset) among others. I'm still moving the creaking 57-year-old legs on the 5-a-side courts of Bath (hence the right knee under an ice pack today!).

You should find this a very friendly place, though try to steer of politics! It's about the only no-go area.

Just rejoined - I used the handle Rerum Silva last time.

Been reading the mag for a long time triggered by my interest in Charles Fort, hoping for some good exchanges here.

one interest area is ABCs, and when I find the right thread I’ll divulge further.

Hello Josef

Welcome sorry I'm a bit late I've had a week or so away from the forum. Your English is a lot better than my German!
