  1. Bob, I did not mean to hurt you ,but if you look across your comments you will see that you were not happy at Xaverian. You might see it different in old age but looking from the outside I see it different than you.

    • Bob, I am surprised you have put my comment on your website ,but now that you have I will tell you you that I am sorry I said sorry to you. I only did it to appease you. I spent an afternoon reading all your comments on your website. It became obvious that what you achieved at Xavs was below what you and your family expected. The final comment “you did not collect the O level results” It was obvious from when you gave your “resume” of your working life. I never asked for it nor gave you my working life. I was happy as a “pig in a sty “when I went to Xavs to collect my Maths O level from a po faced Brother David. The look on his face when he had to give me my Maths O level paper will live with me for ever. I did not have any intention in the first place of paying for the exam. So that was a plus. I had no history at Xavs but you did. You put some exam results on the website. Bob you put yourself out in the open on a website ,I am a nobody a guy who worked in a practical way all his life. If I can see were your at I am sure other people will see your problem. You did not meet your standards. Finish, james kedian
