I'm off



If you're in Ireland you should get along to the day advertised above, it's the first time that we as a whole team will have traveled and done stuff together. Even my boys are coming it will be a great day. Saturday 25th 10am - 10pm.

We also have another thing happening in England it's on Wednesday 29th at a great restaurant called las iguanas at lakeside in Essex. £20 for the ticket which includes a great menu, it will be a bit of a fund raiser for all we do. I will post more details for that one shortly.

All the details are on my laptop which has charger issues, the charger broke this morning, I tried to fix it but forgot to unplug it! My Mac in general is dying, it doesn't hold it's charge, it's very slow, it's cracked, the hinge is bent, it's 3 years old and when I put it on my lap it makes my testicles hurt! Now I can't even use it until I get a new flipping charger.

I fly to Canada tomorrow doing some stuff with 24-7prayer Canada I am also speaking at a conference which should be fun, check it out here the best bit is going to be hanging out with Chris Jones and his family for thanksgiving, they have a shack up in the woods which should be fun. I didn't realize Canadians did thanksgiving but it turns out they were doing before their American neighbours.

On January 31, 1957, the Canadian Parliament proclaimed:
“ A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed … to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."

I am only away for 6 days, hopefully I'll keep you posted.

Hey Brian,

hope you have a safe trip to Canada, I met you briefly @ Autumn Soul 2 yrs ago, and am now living in Canada - I just checked out your event, but unfortunately you are WAAAAAY the other side of Toronto from me in Kingston!!

I hope you have a wonderful trip though, and I'm looking forward to reading your posts on Thanksgiving - this will be my first Canadian Thanksgiving too, so I'm excited! :-D
