  1. Hi Mike
    Congratulations on all you successes in Trinidad. I have enjoyed reading your new blog and most recent City Council win. Brings back many memories of my 20 years there.('83 - 03)
    I really enjoyed the link to the Chamber of Commerce. It is so different than in the '80's when we put together the Discover Trinidad brochure and tried to market via hand delivery. Technology is wonderful! paulkirk2003@comcast.net
