I’ll be in Kuwait this weekend at the invitation of Newsweek’s Arabic edition, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary (The Bulletin publishes Newsweek in Australia, therefore the connection).

Will post from there, but also will track down The Real JeffS, currently stationed in Kuwait. Put that orange juice on ice, Jeff!

  5. JeffS has said the food contractors are pretty good there.  Maybe you can score some yummy All American chow hall grub, Tim!  (Although I’ll bet JeffS wishes he could score your digs compared to his. {8^P)

  9. Tim,

  16. You might bump into Web Dairy Maiden Margo at the airport lounge

    Strangers in the night exchanging glances
    Wondering in the night
    What were the chances weíd be sharing love
    Before the night was through.

  18. With the master and mistress away, the trolls will play ... don’t forget to lock your luggage, as is fashionable now, especially if it has expensive booze packed inside ...

  19. There is a photo of the Real JeffS in Q8 ... the other famous gunner in history, Spike Milligan, also had an association with Q8 ... good night ... Stevo
