GOOD to see you back!

I have not read your long post… yet…

Just had to say…

Welcome Back & hope you’re OK!

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

OK, I’ve read it…

Well, Neil, you ARE ALIVE and kicking and thinking good thoughts!
It can always be worse…

I don’t know if you’re very religious… but… The Supreme Father (God) just may be the thing to turn to…
I know we’re not supposed to talk about it, but maybe through PM’s we could talk about it…(?)

I hope & pray that you can gradually get healed… one problem at a time, to eventually get better.

Here is a good website... after a little study and contacting the right people, it just MAY be what you’re wanting to happen to you. If I were you, I’d sure give it the ole college TRY… I have seen many strange problems get completely CURED as the result of treatments found from some of the people associated with this group… Read, if you can.. and study the website… I feel very positive that you could be helped…

Watch ALL of the Shows… See link tabs across the top area…
... start with the Last show… coming forward…

You’ve been through so much Neil. I’ve been thinking about you and also wish you all the best. Thank you for letting us, your friends know how things are going. It sounds like you still have a road ahead, but it also seems like you are approaching it with a clear head. That’s good. Take things one at a time, as they come to you. It is much easier to manage that way.

I wish you health, happiness and all the best for the future. Hang in there!

Welcome back –
Hey if you are heading to central/south america looking for woodworkers -
Contact Michael Fortune. He is outside Ottawa. But he does a lot of stints in undeveloped areas and works with the local craftsmen to develop designs and tools to make furniture and such for the local market, so he may have some great contacts that you could slip in with during an extended stay down south.

All the best.

Sounds like you’re really being tested in this life. You’re still here, so you must be a really strong person, probably without knowing it.

(while its no “cure all”) You should try an Earthing sheet for your bed. I have been using one for a week or so, it’s been awesome.

An earthing sheet grounds you to the earth, thats it. the fabric is laced with fine copper wire that is plugged into the ground of your outlet (or a rod leading to the outside). it allows free electrons from the earth to flow into your body as you sleep. Exactly like walking barefoot outside! Something humans are completely deficient in (free electrons), or being grounded to the earth – we live in an insulated society. We almost never touch earth anymore. Free electrons neutralize the free radicals in your body (one of the main causes of inflammation). While you dont NEED an earthing blanket, you can simply walk barefoot outside and get the same results. Humans used to be grounded to the earth 24 hours a day. With the earthing blanket, you can be grounded for 8 hours as you sleep!

You should give it a shot. Like I said…its not a “cure all”, just a nutrient most people are deficient in. You’ll sleep better, and feel better! There are books out there about it as well if you want to read up on it – its something you’ll never hear from an MD (its not a drug or a surgery)

Nice hearing from you! good luck

It’s good to see karma and justice in the world come around to show the real Nbeener in his true colors. He sure has a lot of the folks here fooled but the people who were unfortunate enough to be his neighbors were terrified of Neil’s regular dangerous and odd behavior.

“and in an email, the HOA board president called him “an insistent and viral complainer that has brought stress and grief to an otherwise beautiful place.”
/end quote

The people who had to live near Nbeener know the real story of a constant whiner, complainer and threatening individual that lived amongst them. Maybe $70,000 in legal fees will be punishment enough for Neil, I do not know. Prison would seem more appropriate for such a dangerous and dishonest man. Don’t be fooled by the lack of knowledge by only hearing one side of the story. As the police and the courts have shown he is not the person some of you have been fooled into thinking he is.

I have known other people, and have even been the target myself to a lesser degree, of some the same type crap Neil has had to endure. I can tell you that if you ever get in that spot, you don’t know how you would react. He may not have handled it properly, or he may be a victim. Don’t really know. But I still wish him well.

I really feel sorry for anyone who has to deal with a HOA in any way. I don’t think those things should be allowed to exist without some very close regulation and limitation. I’d rather live in Podunk than have someone, committee driven or not, tell me what I can and can’t do with my own property.

One would have to believe that Neil’s so called “conspiracy” actually took place against him. The neighbor (victim) was in league with the other neighbors. They in turn were in cahoots with the HOA and its president and of course the police and the District Attorney were somehow tied into the complex conspiracy along with Neil’s own Lawyer. Then it was just a piece of bad luck that Neil drew a corrupt Judge that had it in for him down at the court house. That information all came from Neil’s mouth. Can you say far-fetched? Or Neil is guilty as charged and he convinced his good forum buddy (s) to take up his claims based only upon the yarns that he had spun (some sent him money). Then he pleaded guilty to charges.

It is a known fact that the more complex a theory of conspiracy is the less likely it is to have taken place. Do you believe that Neil wasn’t out in his front yard with a firearm menacing his neighbors? The police along with several officer’s reports (a SWAT team no less) plus the District Attorney along with Neil’s own Lawyer and the so called corrupt Judge would all disagree with you. They also know the truth as they reviewed the evidence against Neil plus heard and read witness statements both verbal and written. Where did you get the information that you stand internet forum as told by the perpetrator and maybe a couple of short reports form a small periodical which may or may not be accurate? It is much more likely that Neil and his claims of a conspiracy against him are a tall tale told to and repeated by people who have based their opinions off of online interaction with Neil or second or third-hand information posted to an internet forum. Just sayin..
