    Bruce and i were out in the garage playing with his new lift; the Testa Rossa was sitting in the driveway and he turned and said: "Why don't you take her out for a spin..."

    Can you imagine...? So i did.

    WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...!!!

    i love that car...!!!

    There was little snowflakes coming down, but not sticking; the air was cold and the car wanted big gulps of it... i gotta eat and get ready for tonight's party, so i'll go into detail later or tomorrow, but i just wanted to say that i love this place... i've met so many wonderful people here; i've made so many wonderful, new friends... i hope everyone has a wonderful, happy, safe holiday. :)

    Plus, Bruce is a great guy as well! Hey Bruce, will be giving you a call this week to wish you a good holiday, hope you do not mind. I am very happy for you Des, you have met a good man there as well as many wonderful people on this board and I as well. We are both very lucky to cross paths with the folks on this board-To have good friends and a good family, that is all I need this Christmas, the rest will come with hard work and lots of tears.

    Merry Christmas to all on F-chat!

    Best wishes,
    Marcus Mayeux

    Tyson,

    Thank you for the kind words. The tea business is going very slow. We are having big problems in getting them to ship on time (this is for the local restaurants I have approached and who want to buy from us). So far I am not happy with what is going on with the comapny right now, but all companies go through rough times at the begining. My partner is going to Sri Lanka in January, so hopefully this will clear some problems up. It is very hard to communicate to these people sometimes, especially over an email. We are very small and they want huge orders right away, so that is another problem. I am going to be calling Ben E Kieth Distribution here next week and see what they can do for us. We have a long way to go before we hit the stores though-Patience is the key. I hope I did not bore you.

    -Marcus

    Sri Lanka: Are they Dambatene?
    Only very, very recently were Dembatene "recognized"

    The national census listed 860,500 Tamils in the stateless category in 2001.

    More than likely Tamil. Tamil warriors (Tamil "Tigers" have been warring for quite some time) - if so - I've done quite a bit of philosophical battle (though NEVER about Tamil - only other topics) with a US born, Left-leaning, Harvard-educated Cultural Anthropologist/Professor in New Zealand who is, in every sense of the word - a beloved friend and defender of the Tamil community. Her insights may be helpful in making inroads with the Tamil, should that be the case - but - in every sense of the word, she will also protect the Tamil, so they are not "exploited."

    She's quite bright - and may be of some help. If you're interested, I'll PM you with the specifics.

    Wax,

    I am not sure. Some of his family resides there and one being the uncle who owns the tea estate. Any help would be much appreciated-trust me we need all the help we can get right now. I am just glad he is going in January to sort things out (go to the tea estate, factory etc..)

    Carbon great to hear that and it was good to talk to you and Bruce today. A phone call from Bruce or Carbon always leaves a smile on my face. Sounds like you had a good time. Bruce is a tremendous person and I'm honored to call him my friend.

    This is a great board, and most of you F-Chatters are terrific. Bruce W is a great guy, very generous and kind.

    Merry X-Mas and a Happy New Year to all. If I missed anything, Happy Channukah, Kwannza, Ramadan, etc.
