The Zephyr

Ok, ok. I realize that it has been about 5 months since my last entry. This is unforgivable and I have very few excuses; but here they are. Since my last entry, I have been engrossed in a complicated (and hopefully rewarding) project that will be coming to fruition in the next week... Wait for an update on that! Also, I have had to deal with my second Ramadan (the entire month of August), the Imilchil Wedding Festival (in September), the onset of winter, and winterizing my house. Lots of things to keep me busy.

I have five months left, and expect regular updates from me until my term ends. It's winter now, and there is not much else left for me to do.

For now, I would like to turn your attention to my work in the "Canyon Country Zephyr", a publication out of the red deserts of Southeast Utah, that I write for bi-monthly. It's a wonderful paper, one that I grew up reading (I picked up a copy whenever I was in Moab), and I hope that you will enjoy the Z as much as have! Enjoy the other authors work, and maybe even contribute to the Z! You know how difficult it is for the written word to survive in such dire economic straits, and we are already losing papers and post offices left and right! Ok, getting off my soapbox now, read on.

I may slack on the blog, but I don't slack on the Z! Below, you will find links to all eight of my entries so far, which you can download as a PDF and read at your leisure. If you would like to comment, you can have your say on the Zephyr main page or email my editor, Jim Stiles at cczephyr@gmail.com. Enjoy, and please forgive my blogging lassitude!

  2. The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a

    lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option
    to learn, but I

    truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say.

    All I

    hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you
    would repair in case you werent too busy searching for attention.

  17. The only thing required to see the salary rising higher
    at good speed is stability here. Work on a cruise Liner - this
    job would be a cruise - literally. On-time completion of work, no missed deadlines and supportive, flexible and
    innovative people are the first ones to climb the career ladder swiftly.
    The various categories available in Hotel Jobs are:
    . That is why there is increasing pressure for brochure designers to create the
    most attention grabbing designs that can hook unsuspecting tourists.
    The word hospitality covers hotels, restaurants, industrial or organized catering for offices, hospitals, educational institutions,
    private homes, defense services, railways, cruise ships and flight catering.
