It's Been a While, and a lot has happened!






e



Hello again,

My apologies for not updating this lately. I have really been consumed with work and my family visiting South Africa. So much has happened in the past few weeks that I dont even know where to begin. I guess I will start with the launch of our 24-hour news and weather channel. June 1st was a huge success for E.tv/E.news. Our station launched that Sunday evening, and I was part of the first 15 minutes of its broadcast. How exciting. I can honestly say, aside from some minor glitches, that the station was flawless and continues to shine in its 3rd week on air. The excitement of being a part of television history is something I will never forget. Since then, we have had countless feedback from viewers around the country and the globe. The weather department took flight and has never looked back. It's been an overwhelming good response so far, and we are determined to keep it up.

God placed yet another special moment in my life when my family visited me in South Africa recently. We truly had the time of our lives. A few of the pictures show the excitement that we all shared. We stayed at a beautiful place along the Indian Ocean with views that are un-parrallel to anything I've seen. We decided to get a little adrenaline going as well..what better way than to go White Shark Cage diving with the ol' fam. I am so blessed.

We climbed some mountains together, and even managed to catch up with a favorite actor of mine. Kiefer Sutherland was staying at the same hotel as my family. This has a very interesting story behind it..but I will keep that one off the ol' blogsite.

I will update more soon. Until then, Be well!

  2. Thanks for posting a great pic of you and Kiefer! I also have a blog (I’m from Brazil) which is a Kiefer fan blog.
    http://kieferbenny.blogspot.com/ I’m sad to say that we haven’t gotten much news of 24 filming around Cape Town…but his fans can’t wait for this prequel.

    How amazing that he was staying in the same hotel…but even better that you actually got to meet him. He is so accessible to his fans and just a downright nice guy! His fans truly enjoy hearing another person’s encounter.

    If you are willing to share your story about meeting him, I would love to hear about it and share it with his fans. You have my word that I would only post what you feel comfortable with. But if you’re not comfortable with me posting anything…or even sharing, I would understand that too. Still, it’s a great pic and memory you have now!

    My email: bennykss@yahoo.com.br

    *I did post the Kiefer only part of your pic...hope you don't mind.
