Introduction to Ron Price(1966: Sociology)
I have already introduced myself at MacInsiders but, after 45 years as one of McMaster's alumni---and perhaps many more years if life grants me time in the old age department(i.e. the years after 80)--I will keep a thread here. I'll keep this thread not only for those whom I remember and who remember me from my years at McMaster, 1963-1966, but for anyone else who comes to this site and wants to engage in dialogue in the years ahead.-Ron Price, age 66, now living in Tasmania, Australia, retired with three grown-up children now aged43, 40 and 33.

Thanks temptingf8
Thanks, temptingf8. It is interesting how, on the internet one finds many people with the same name as oneself.

By April 2010 I had located over 2000 other Ron Prices on the internet. The list of these other Ron Prices is found from special sites like: MyLife and How Many of After 9 years of extensive posting on the internet(2001-2010) and after coming across a great many other Ron Prices, I decided to gather as many of them together as I could find.

I have itemized over 2000 other RonPrices. If I go to the USA internet site: How Many of, I will find over 1000--Ron Price’s and Ronald Price’s. If I do the same in the UK, I get over 300. If I go to: ZoomInfo Business People, I get some 250 Ron Prices’s. After completing this exercise in this 9th year of coming across other Ron Price’s I ceased making a list of RonPrice’s. It was a useful exercise, though, since people were confusing me with other people who had the same name.
