Visa Update


Well tomorrow looks like it could be the day that we sign off on our visas and submit them to the powers that be. Myself and Julia have been up to our eyes in paper work for weeks and we are ready to meet with our lawyer at 3pm to give it our seal of approval. So with red ribbons tied neatly around each of our weighty bundles of papers, we hand our fate over to the US  immigration department.

So with that I have a new sense of zen knowing that we have done all that we could have done, starting almost 18 months ago. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank publicly, those who have contributed to and helped me along the way with my visa application.

Not in any particular order and if I leave a name out please, please forgive me.

And last but not least my good friend Mr Stephen Morrissey.

Also I would like to thank all at the roasting works and Silverlake cafe in Los Angeles in particular my roaster buddies Mr Steven Lee and Jared Linzmeire, who have put up with my mood swings, tantrums, tears and whom have carried the load when I have been away. Of course this extends to all at Intelligentsia, no matter who or where you are!

Fingers crossed will let you know the outcome in 13 business days.
