**Over my long lifetime of 75 years, I've thought of thousands of subjects to 

talk about. Sometimes I type into notepad some subjects I may talk about in the 

next few days, but usually I'll think of something else and type about that. I was 

going to type about the Amish today, but I happen to see the web site at: The following is what I found out:

"Forrest Caricofe.

75 years old.

Smithville, OH.

Possible Relatives:

Carolyn Caricofe, Edith Caricofe Lori Caricofe, Michael Caricofe, Randolph 

Caricofe, Roland Caricofe, Ryan Caricofe and Bill Varney.

The places where I've lived, Smithville, Ohio; Dayton, Virginia; Omaha, Nebraska,

but did not include Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; and Las Vegas, 

Nevada. I didn't tell my family of my addresses in Houston, Texas or Los Angeles,

California, to my later regret, but I did have an address in a North Las Vegas post 

office called Meadow Mesa at 4904 Canimo Al Norte, North Las Vegas, NV 89031.

The postal employee who took my money for a post office box rental said that I 

could use the above address along with my post office box number as my 

address. I should have ask the postal employee if I could sleep here to. 

My financial assets were $290,000. 

And at the end and not to my suprise:



Pick your Package.


1 month of UNLIMITED Reports.

Bottom right hand corner of my computer screen: 4:41 AM 12/2/2017 ET: 

"You're just minutes away from viewing Forrest's report. Click the button below
