Wet season in full effect in Kandahar / Twitter works well

The last few days here have been the opposite of what people usually expect in Kandahar.  Instead of the usual sunny and dusty here, we have been treated to cold, wet and muddy.

Like weather back home, when it is wet, people want dry and vise a versa.  I know that the usual hot and dusty will be back soon and all will be wishing for a rainy day.  Such is life.

Not much more to report here as we are trying to work in our new location.  It is not the same place we had been before so we're making the most of it.  Change is not a bad thing, but it can be disruptive to the normal flow of things.

Internet speed is another issue as the new location has Internet akin to being back on dial-up.  Yeah, that can make sending even the most basic of attachments a 1-2 hr exercise in frustration.

Other than these issues, life here is pretty much what we expect. Working hard and missing home.  I find that the news from home, especially the chunkheads in Washington DC has not been too much better than we have come to expect either.  The POLS fiddle while the rest of the country wonders how we seemed to have elected the biggest group of dunderheads known to man.  We definitely deserve better leadership for our country.

I have been spending some time on Twitter and it actually works pretty well for connecting with others.  Check out my Twitter Feed at  @Leadership_One. I like it as you have to be concise and that is a blessing.

All for now....And the hits just keep on coming......The only easy day was yesterday.  If you know what I mean.
