Oh, he did he did! He hooked up w/ Bob Dole at the inhouse studio at the Village. I heard he's Rush's connect too. :rofl:

Has anybody here read "A Million Little Pieces" and "My friend Leornard" by James Frey? Great books on one mans recovery by the way. His description of his loss of Lili describes well the feelings I've been experiencing. I guess some good has come of it because I have started working on myself again and I needed to do that. Trust me on this."


Funny you should mention it. A friend just sent Bill a copy of that. Unfortunately, it's about as authentic as Lybbi's $1k/day heroin habit. Check it out.

Antigen,
Do you know when Straight opened in St Pete?  
I remember at the Ft Lauderdale Seed they were going to do some type of a news letter and the group was asked to come up with names.  Not know anything about Straight, I sent in the title Straight form the Seed, I (being young) thought it was a great name and could never figure out why the staff just glared at me (in group of course).

Wow! I was a seedling from way back (+ 30 years ago) and I just was thinking of the "old days" recently.  I went to the Seed on (Friday) April 13th 1973 when I was 14 while I was a freshman at Cooper City High School and the Seed was on State Road 84.

Aside from hating the long, boring days - the only real lasting side effects I still have is my absolute refusal to eat either Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches or Bologna & Cheese sandwiches!!!  I still don't like Lemon Joy dishwashing soap as that is what I had to wash the dishes with at my oldcomer's house before I got to go home.  The funny thing is that once I broke away from the Seed, I spent my Junior & Senior years pretty much stoned all the time!  

The thing that stands out the most is when I was an oldtimer, they called a load of us back to sing (America the Beautiful?) at a Dolphin's halftime show at the Orange Bowl.  We had to practice running back & forth between the front of the property on 84 to the fenced in area - how no one got hurt I'll never know because I do remember one girl fell and by the grace of God, everyone was able to jump over her.  

You know the what finally got me away from drugs and being a habitual "druggie" was when I was in my early 20's and my then boyfriend got busted with a ton of 'ludes.  I was not at his house that night so I wasn't arrested as well, but that was close enough for me!  I wouldn't even go near dope for years until I found coke...

Now, all those 'bad' habits are just memories with (Thank God) no police record to remind me.

If any of the CCHS seedling from that time period remember me, please e-mail me.

See ya!!!

I went to Cooper City - we had a load of Seed kids when I was going through the program.

In Miami, the Seed was housed in an old race track complex....I vaguely remember my friend's brother went there. Maybe 1973 or so. Everyone in my junior high who went there got shirts from Dadeland Mall at the t-shirt kiosk and had "The Seed Loves You" embossed on the back...and just about every Stop Sign in my neighborhood had "The Seed" spray painted under the word Stop.

One other thing, I knoew several people who went there in my junior high (South Miami Junior High) and they all went on to become unrepentant drug users in high school and college.

Just curious if The Seed actually helped anyone???

I was in Pompano when my older brothers and sister went in. I remember Seed tshirts w/ the logo on the front. But no one ever went to the trouble of painting up the stop signs. Always wondered what the difference was, why Miami ran them out of town so quick. What else do you remember?

As for whether or not it helped anyone, I honestly don't think so. But some people swear by it, including my older brothers and sister.

But this is far from demonstrating that the authorities must interpose to suppress these vices by commercial prohibitions, nor is it by any means evident that such intervention on the part of the government is really capable of suppressing them or that, even if this end could be attained, it might not therewith open up a Pandora's box of other dangers, no less mischievous than alcoholism and morphinism.

I am pretty sure in St. Pete the Seed sold the Seed T-shirts

$5 bucks a mustard "tree" shirt rings a bell.  Too bad they didn't represent that mustard seed right on the shirt, and draw a scrawny little bush and some southerners making Mustard greens out of the bush with a ham hock and some crystal's hot sauce.
