Wow Long time no Update

Well here is an update. Been busy, and I have returned from Africa. Easter was the last opportunity I had to get online, but now I am waiting for someone at Panera bread company in VA and they have free Internet. I am taking advantage. Lots has happened since my last post. I have visited yet another country, Togo. It was a short visit for work full of surprises and challenges. I believe I am going to have the opportunity to return to Benin. So Much Fun.

Anyway, Tronster is thinking of buying a place here in town, so casa de Tronster will be his very own property, as opposed to giving $11k a year to someone else to make money. Tonight is the first step. Wish me luck. More updates to follow.

Happy Easter

It is Easter here in Benin. Everything is going well, and it is a great day. I only have one complaint. I believe one of the sermons I downloaded onto my Ipod was corrupt. The darn thing just locked up this morning. I was able to listen to a Charles Stanley message, which was nice, but the Love Worth Finding wasn't working. Oh well.

Yesterday was a day of rain. So I sat in my hotel room, busy as ever, playing the PSP. I have a game called hot shots golf. A must if you don't own it. I played several rounds and I am getting better. You get these cool animated characters and then you are able to make some great shots. It can also be frustrating, when you miss the perfect impact.

Well, Have a good Easter and remember God Loves you.

Also, Parents of Tronster, you need to write your son.

A shout out to my Friend Mullet. :-)

Until next time, remember you will never finish until you start.

Cotonou, Benin

What? What is Cotonou? It is the capital of a small country in Africa. If you have been wondering why I haven't posted anything, its because that is where I am. It is very hot and humid, so I don't go out much. But I am still alive and well and trying to think of clever things to share with you all, but its just not there. So yes, you could call me a slacker, but I am trying. The trip here wasn't great, but it could have been worse. We had a 12 hour layover in Casablanca. Which was OK because the airline put us up in a hotel for a few hours, so we didn't have to sit in the airport. Although we did for a while. So l am to blame for my travel partners foul mood. Not really, he took it well.

It is the rainy season here, and it rains about every other night. The hotel has excellent food. I have some chicken, grouper, and Ice cream here that is just as good as the states. The grouper in particular was great.

A few more notes. The first season of 24 was great and I have watched that already. I am now beginning the first season of "That 70s Show". So far it is pretty funny, and I have seen more of the episodes than I thought. I am reading a couple of books on this trip as well, and I will let you know how those are.

I want to send a shout out to my special friend Mellit. Miss you.

Thanks for the info Blaine, I will look into the website.
