One could spend all day in this square.
I write you to say I’ve chose a much different path than expected since my summer and fall chapters. Some of you may think I’m in the Middle East for this Christmas. Well, that was the plan all through the summer and some of fall. However, after selling my car, a lot of cloths and some furniture with intentions of leaving the country, I was introduced to a business opportunity, impossible for someone like me to turn down. I am now working for Reliv International, a science/nutrition company, building an international marketing and distribution system by helping people start their own businesses while helping others with their health. For me, there was no alternative to parallel such an incredible opportunity, and so I plan to remain in the Midwest at least for the next half year or so.
In addition, so we are current, I’m working to eliminate my student loans from four grand years of private education at Loras. I intend do graduate school in upcoming years but don’t have collective thoughts in regards to that decision quite yet. I read often these days and was lucky enough to enjoy a great trip through Europe with my brother Travis
Brown metal can look so beautiful.
traveling and visiting friends there. We met up in Germany, traveled onward to Paris, Versailles, and the beaches of Normandy up into Belgium, and finished with a three city tour of The Netherlands. Travis returned to Iraq and I to the USA after eventful weeks abroad. However, he’ll be home from Iraq for good after the first of the year. Thank God! I hope to do a little work overseas in the near future. Until then, I'm in the Midwest!
I skipped all meals on Thanksgiving Day this year to recognize millions of God’s people who starve regularly and hundreds of thousands who die from starvation weekly. For me, I’m confused as to why American soldier death tolls in Iraq (approx. 2,200 to date) dominate the media when close to 40,000 people starve to their death daily with little or no mention at all. Got to love the media!!! Regardless, I am a little more appreciative of having food on my plate at all times than I might have been having had eaten excessive amounts of food.
Everybody reading this wherever you may be, I truly hope each one of you have great successes in 2006 and your

When here, traffic watching from the top is entertaining. 1 accident every 7 minutes. The only place in France for which insurance companies won't cover accidents
lives are blessed like mine. To those of you who are making resolutions… “Good for you!” My resolution is to pour myself into my career and life. Till the next time we meet, take care of yourselves and God bless!
