Is Neil Ferris out there?

Chris Beaumont writes "I am looking for Neil Ferris whom I have not seen for years and do not know what he is doing now. Hope you can help and would be glad to hear of any update of yours.
I guess we are all nearing retirement now if not already but I expect there some interesting stories out there.
