About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

We've been in Pre-Departure Training the last couple days. Lots of team teaching techniques as seen in the picture above. Tonight we are going over our packing AGAIN and nervously waiting the morning move out.

We bus from here in Philly to JFK for the flight to Johannesburg, South Africa tomorrow morning. It's a whole "Joseph" move all over again. I feel right in my element. I'm one of six team leaders to enable the process. All those flights in and out of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi, etc. are finally paying off.

By the way, the cemetery holding Ben Franklin's bones is right behind the hotel. Turns out he died 218 years ago today. For some reason visitors to his grave feel compelled to toss coinage onto his tombstone. Go figure...
