I am trying to find any information I can on a
Reverend Thambimuttu, who was last known to have
been working at Lodgate Church under a Reverend
Isaac. I would like to access Church records to
find out where such a church is and details of
those that served at that church. If anyone can
offer any advice, I will be very grateful.

I would like to hear from anyone who knows of a St. John's College besides the one in Jaffna. The College existed in the 19th century and enlists the name of my great grandparent as a headmaster. I have made some enquiries with St. John's College, Jaffna, but his name does not appear in their records.

Dayawathie Rankoth watched Elephant Walk today on Cable TV. The movie
has been vastly upgraded and improved.
Dayawathie recognizes all of the places in the movie, because the
movie was shot near Peredeniya Road near Kandy almost in the front
yard of her house. The movie shows a foot-path which she used to use
to walk to school every day when she was a child.
Dayawathie says that the reason the elephants go crazy at the end of
the movie is because they had been overworked. Dayawathie's brother
owns an elephant, so she knows a lot about elephants. She says that
the elephants only work every day from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM. After
11:00 AM, they go to the river and take a bath. After 6:00 PM they get
out of the river and are ready to work again. The work they do
consists of going into the forests and dragging out logs which are
used to make furniture.
However, the people who made the movie did not know much about
elephants and so made them work in the afternoon when it was too hot.
That is the reason the elephants went crazy and destroyed the house in
the movie, says Dayawathie.
I have reviewed the movie at http://www.samsloan.com/walk-rev.htm
