    I'm pretty sure he didn't start the garden; it's a friends IIRC. He answered about gardening in this post. We were talking about peppers if that helps.

    Foods should also be answered.

    I'm pretty sure we are not focusing on "fire ant bites"
    See the link below - it's not confirmed who said fire ant bites.

    Where it says this:
    A statement from the EMT interviewed for the Dr Phil Show
    Snip-"An ambulance was called to the scene. "He was totally naked. He was unresponsive. When I looked at him, he had a lot of sores on him," recalls paramedic Sue Usry."-snip

    On Benjaman's FB page, there are pictures of him in his garden.
    This is BK's FB page. There are two others about his case.

    Fire ant bites have not been verified.
    Unsure where the first post came in about this.

    I have no idea what my beard and hair condition was in when I was found I just do not remember. I shaved my mustache off once (several months after I was found) and promptly grew it back again-It did not feel right not having a mustache- Fire ant bites do not seem to bother me much. At least other people seem to get in a panic when they get one and it does not seem to me to be that big of a deal. Beware Yankees- fire ants are migrating north. They are evolving to withstand the cold.

    what books have you been reading lately? do you drink wine and/or know about diff wines? what are your favorite foods? do you watch tv and if so what? do you have any sort of political opinions? have you been to any of the catholic churches in savannah?

    ok, that's enough for now. toodles!
    Way too many Questions. not an artist. Have been in several churches (as a Tourista). Wine drinkers are snobs. Restaurants serve wine because it has a huge mark-up. very profitable. I like the empty bottles. if I had a bottle cutter I would try to make glasses out of them . Signals catalog is seloling sets of Six for About $20US.

    Hi Benjaman,

    Good to hear from you! Could you tell us what your facial/hair condition was (length of hair, etc) shortly after you were found. I recall reading that shortly after you were found and saw yourself in a mirror for the first time, you were shocked at your appearance (thought you looked older, I believe?).

    Could you describe your appearance the first time you saw yourself in the mirror?

    Thanks

    "Six for About $20US" interesting. I would never say $20US. I would say $20, the US would be assumed. Canadian? Worked with people from other countries?
    thoughts?

    Interesting someone else picked up on that! I had the "Canadian" thought myself last night. Thought maybe website (catalog) was based out of US, but webpage does not display $20US format in pricing....

    Wondering if fingerprints,etc were run through database in United States only?

    Could be BK was in US on work visa from Canada? (Knew someone here locally that was here on visitor's visa as her husband was employed in the Savannah area under a Canadian work visa.....

    ----------------------

    This has been explored before.
    BK has had word spellings that are a little different, pointing to Canada.
    six for about $20US is very telling to me.

    We are the fresh start/fresh eyes team.
    Time to look at Canada again.

    When I saw myself in the mirror it was almost 9 months after I was found and a week after my eye had been fixed. I have no recollection of my hair state on the day I was found nor do I remember when I started shaving in the Hosiptal.

    This is a fine example of how Ebay and the World Wide Web has corrupted the insular (if any one has a encyclopedia handy, I am not referring to my brain (I probably should discuss my brain, since that is the reason that I am on Web Sleuths in the first place)) elements of American (US-Please do not forget that Canadians and Mexicanos are Americans too) society. Be aware that my tongue is firmly planted to the inside of my cheek-I hope that it does not take root there. I would be in a real predicament if my mouth would happen to fill with roots, although, as I type this missive, I am chewing on a carrot (raw). Thankfully even though we are approaching winter here, it is not yet raw. I am being quite cheeky here , do you not think?

    Frequently on Ebay the prices are indicated with "US" after the price because the sellers will ship to any country but they expect to remitted in United States Dollars.

    If we could hear his pronunciation of the words "about", "house" or "out" or if he says "eh" at the end of a question, that would help. As for his spelling..I was raised in Northern Wisconsin and many of my teachers were Canadian, so we were taught the Canadian spelling for many english words. So..I don't know?

    I never use the "eh" as in Canadian sense. I do not say "ouse" unless I am trying to be funny(vey hard for me to be) I do not think that I have ever said "oot" all though I may very well be "oot of it" in many senses of the word.

    Surely you jest. You cannot hide that wonderful sense of humor. We have witnessed it many times here. I personally think you're a cheeky little hoot! ha ha

    hey,
    shout out to all the wine lovers out there! no offense meant!

    i have experience with some folks who tried to corner me as they droned on ad nauseum (sic prob) about the names of wines and what goes with what meal and yadayadayada...and....truthfully, i would've rather poked my eyeballs out than listen to that most boring one sided conversation. i did escape

    Him saying it means nothing to me.
    I go to computer sites; garden forums, it's common there where posters are from all over.

    I asked Believe a few months ago what ever came of Canada.
    I'd given her a contact over a year ago for someone who works in the restaurant industry in Canada.

    I am not able to contact this person myself; I could but would rather not.
    My intentions were to post about Benjaman at the forum this person goes to, hoping he would respond.

    I imagine that includes that you don't recall touching your facial hair before you were able to see?

    I mentioned this before, and mention it again. Headquartre and programme are words that he has used. I've been thinking this for a while now. Maybe Benjaman was from the US and may have spent time in Canada or even UK areas for work or even married there and lived. I personally believe it is worth looking into. A expired visa or passport never returning to his destination.

    Believe is there anything we can find out from FBI Bill about this? thoughts please.
