    A lot of people right now will be thinking about what plans they will be making for this new year of 2024.
    But looking back over the events that took place in 2023 in your life, the questions are;
    What was the funniest thing that happened to you or...
    what was the most embarrassing moment you can recall happening.
    Plans made but you never got round to doing.......but maybe this year.

    JB, I always don't like to look back but prefer to look forward. As you know, so many things past, present, future are out of our control. However, I am grateful and thankful for the past and hopeful for the future. Thank you for your post and happy New Year.

    We looked again at some land around Dauin but put it off so yes maybe this year. I notice some posts about last years main event where four foreign expats challenged a US marine and lost their titles have disappeared. Any updates on that? Are they still among us?

    Past mistakes have a tendency to make us better if you can embrace them.

    2023 was fun; a project that came in more difficult than expected, a work culture that I impacted positively and a current move to Okinawa to tackle the next challenge.

    Personally it has been getting our farmland going; the wife onboard with my vision as well as some really good workers to include a couple family members.

    Wishing everyone the best always!
