New Years Day 2007

Had a decent New Year's Eve. The chow hall did a whole buffet of snacks. I just love fried jalapeno "poppers". Also a whole fountain of egg nog. The chow hall set up a disco and amplifiers, and we danced and enjoyed the night.

It is cold here in Iraq, this time of year, there was a hard freeze, last night. I finally got back to the trailer about 2am, and slept for ten hours.

Not much to do today, just watched a film "28 Days" with Sandra Bullock. Yesterday, there was a "Sopranos" marathon. Watched the big screen all day long.

I met with the Chow hall manager today and we are now authorized to have a Masonic luncheon every Wenesday at 1200noon. fantastic! We could not reserve a table back at Al Asad, but here the manager (civilian) and military liaison are both Masons! Can you believe it?

I also secured the classroom at the Rec Hall for every 1st/3rd Saturday at 7pm for the Square and Compasses Club. We will meet there, and if there is enought interest, we can see about getting a lodge going.

I found out that there are several other Masons here at Talafar, we just might have what it takes.
