Much of the rest of the world is in economic panic mode (unnecessarily so!) but Africa seems to be riding high above it all (relatively speaking) -- perhaps even playing a little catch-up. ~ link

Dave is all excited because he received his $14 2005 Guam tax return -- which GovGuam couldn't afford to pay him until now. They've gone on a borrowing spree.
There is a new AM radio signal on Guam. KVOG has been playing a test loop with speeches made by long-gone US presidents and running tones at 1530. Apparently there is some history to the station since I found FCC records of a construction license issued in 2005. But currently there are only three AM stations operating on Guam. If KVOG makes it onto the air it will be the fourth.
We had pretty much given up on finding any real Mexican food on Guam. That's why we hadn't bothered with the Caliente Mexican Taqueria, which opened in Hagåtña about a year ago. But then tonight Cheryl had this hankering for Mexican food and we decided to give it a shot. Wow -- it's great -- taco truck style in a pleasant environment. It's so good to finally find a Mexican restaurant which cooks with Mexican rather than Asian spices.
