Just yesterday after Jack Sparrow made his swift exit, I went out the front door to see if I could catch another glimpse of him. Maybe he would stay around the house?

Off The Grid

The world has become a small place. In 1987 when we first moved to Africa, it took months to get news vial mail from "back home." Once, we went six months without knowing what was in our bank account. You may wonder why we didn't just make a phone call and find out. Well, there was no phone available to us back then.

Taking on the Giants

I’d rather not suffer. Who, in their right mind, would prefer living in the dark places of life over the good times? I much prefer times of dancing and celebration.
