The Internet is full of people with entirely too much time on their hands, and I have sick and depraved friends! And I love every one of them...

... just like my apartment ...

It's taking me as long to decorate my website as it is my apartment. Xmas is only a couple days away, and I still have more lights in boxes than I have on the tree and windows... Sad really.

Mostly we've just been getting as much done as we can before the holidays. Things are going to slow down a lot in the next couple of days, so we want to be ready for the inevitable slam on the other side.

Hope everyone is happy and merry, and all that junk... I'll post some pictures of my "Krissmas in Kuwait" when I get my Pixagogo account figured out.

Just so you don't hear about it from somewhere else...

Five foreign workers wounded in Kuwait attack

We're ok, and on a heightened state of alert, to say the least.

Love 2 all!

Yes... that's right ...

... it's snowing. Well, not in Kuwait, but it's getting cold enough for it. (well it FEELS like it... sorta)

I've got some cool weather stuff to add to the page, as well as more pictures to get done. I'm trying to pay for my Pixagogo account, but they're having difficulties believing that I'm who I say I am... something about being in a foreign country... DUH

Other than that, nothing to report. I know I'm long overdue for a long overdone post, so I'll work on something for tomorrow... really!

Love ya all!

just a quickie...

... let everyone know I'm here. Been a bit crazy, and getting caught up. I'm going to be putting up some things this weekend, and let you know what's happening.

Talk to you soon, love to all!

OK... I'm flying back to Kuwait in a few hours, and the 'net connection just came back up in our apartment. It really does amaze me that in this day and age there are still major cities (... like... for instance ... Ankara, Turkey?) that have such problems maintaining an Internet link. It's very frustrating, to say the least...

Unfortunately, I didn't get all the pictures that I wanted to get. This trip back to Kuwait was kind of sudden, and I'll give more details later. I doubt I'll be back online for a couple days, so unless I post in an airport sometime in the next 24 hours, I'll be incommunicado...

Love to all!

Not a great week...

My apologies for not posting all week, but things have been very busy for us here. We're in the final stages for this project, and it looks like I'm going to have to get back to Kuwait sooner than expected. I'll know more about that this by Monday.

But what really has made this week lousy is some news we received last night. One of our co-workers, Stephanie Jones, passed away yesterday. She helped us a lot with this project while I was in New Jersey, and she was an incredible person. She was only 27 years old, and most definitely was in great health. We're still getting the details, but it seems like it was a blood clot in her lungs.

I don't remember for sure if I posted it, but this is the second person I worked with on this project that has passed away. Fred Castenada died of heart failure while he was deployed in Tikrit, Iraq.

I guess the point of this post is just to remind everyone that life is very precious, and not to take anything for granted. It really sucks that something like this has to happen to remind us of that...

Love to all
