    Not posting much, internet is worse than shit and I am keeping myself busy.

    Just a little to say.

    Don't forget this community we have built.

    This morning a member is in route to pick up another member and get him to the hospital.
    Before 6 this morning internet and phones were lit up on the DAC.

    You live on the DAC, you want to be on mine or a few others phones. I seldom talk on the phone, drives friends and the people I deal with crazy, e-mail me, send a carrier Pigeon, good chance I am not answering my phone. When my number pops up as the caller, it gets answered. I don't call anyone, ever, unless it is serious.

    Today will have a happy ending, because of this Community we have built.

    What has kept me coming back to TRN is the sense that it transcends a informational website or chat room. I have felt and I continue to feel the sense of caring and looking out for each other that forms a community with the people in TRN. This has value. I just wanted to let you all know that I recognize it and appreciate all that you give to making this community live.

    I agree, didn't get to my phone in time to answer it, but dialed right back.

    It was an emergency, called a neighbor who has a taxi in in 15 minutes was on the road.

    Got him to the hospital before he bled out and while in the taxi he called the Dr. that had stitched him up the day before and he was there within minutes of our arrival.

    He was then met by others later when the Dr. said he thought it safe to go home. That made my day it did.

    Thannks Cookshoe for your ALWAY'S concern for others. He called me right after you did as I was getting in the taxi to respond.

    The owner and driver of the taxi is the son of a dear friend that we will soon on the 23 kill a pig she has been raising for Christmas. Thinking about letting my daughter shoot it in the head with my new pellet rifle when we go to dress it. Would be her first kill.

    When I asked how much for the ride, he said 70 cordobas and smiled. I was tickled that he had responded so fast.

    A long time member, a friend of mine, and a Damn Good Guy, Mr Yak, just held his annual XMas party, this year he upped the anty and begged donations to get School Uniforms. He has always made sure every kid in the Barrio got a gift, this year he made sure every kid could go to school.

    Billy can probably attach some pics, Mr Yak gave me permiso...

    It is sad when children don't go to school for the littelest of reasons.

    Had one child about 6 or 7 years ago that was the daughter of my and my business partner's domestica was not in school.

    I asked her why? she was about 7 years old. Because I have no pad and paper was the answer. We fixed that right quick in a New York minute.

    Somehow it all makes sense...Sitting on the Porch of a Business, Pirating some Wifi. Behind me, inside the Business, everyone is speaking Miskito, music coming from a House across the "Street" (a Sidewalk) is Eric Clapton.

    Wanted to copy this to the new thread but no time or patience.

    Not sure if I make the list of Verbose Pioneers but I say no to the FB idea.

    I love FB, can keep up with friends I made in 2nd grade till now. Amazing.

    FB has probably killed lots of Forums like this. That I know of must be a dz or more Nica Specific pages on FB, and probably double or triple that I have never seen.

    Think you would all be surprised at the Lurkers, lot of people still around. We need a Silly Ass Doniston to get them all out.

    Amazing Shit for those of us that live here.

    Walk through the airport and see JW, sit down and blow his mind. LCT calls me while in MGA and I happened to be 10 minutes away. Someone needs Help, we make it happen. Shit like that. A Community, not a page...

    I am lurking as usual. I have always enjoyed the community and the friends I have made.

    I am just not one that wants to publicize my toing and froing. That and I am a slow typist and

    forget what I was trying to say and give up. I am a talker not a writer.
