Family Update

Snow everywhere here in Stromness and we are hanging out in our town this weekend.

Good news:

– We are all well and enjoying life.

– A school building has come up for sale

– Squeak, our second cat, came home after 2 months away

– Tamara’s chicken pox are gone

– Debbie found a old CD from The Seekers at a thrift store.

Bad News:

– Sasa Flek in Prague lost his mother this week. Prayed for him often this week

– Our beloved 1991 Volvo was stolen by drunken joy-riders and crashed. Beyond repair. Sob . .

– Van is broken and awaiting a starter motor. No transport except bus.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • I thought Orkneys was so safe… did you ever have joyriders take your care in Prague or London? Well, anyway… broken-down cars are good for fundraising, especially in the days before Christmas. Perhaps the blogging community could help you buy something decent. But I’m afraid that even if we would collect the bucks, you would use it to buy all your friends in Orkneys a second-hand, nearly dying car, rather than spending it on a relative new one. 🙂

  • Hi Andrew, been reading your blog for quite a while now – emergant inspirations for the unreached regions in Germany… One question for you (off topic): What books can you recommend that tackle the issue of globalization critically from an emergant viewpoint? Thanx==
