I hope I'm the right Scott Jorgensen that you are looking for.  

The professions and identities of some of my more illustrious namesakes include Scott Jorgensen the flyweight UFC fighter, Scott Jorgensen the podiatrist, and, more locally, there are two other Scott Jorgensen individuals in the Greater San Francisco Bay Aea, according to LinkedIN.

Well, if you read that whole paragraph, I bet that you know by now whether or not I am the Scott Jorgensen that you are looking for.

About the Gambia (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

The Republic of The Gambia, commonly known as The Gambia, or Gambia, is a country in Western Africa. The Gambia is the smallest country on mainland Africa, bordered to the north, east, and south by Senegal, with a small coast on the Atlantic Ocean in the west.

Its borders roughly correspond to the path of the Gambia River, the nation's namesake, which flows through the country's centre and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Its size is almost 10,500 km² with an estimated population of 1,700,000.

On 18 February 1965, The Gambia was granted independence from the United Kingdom and joined The Commonwealth. Banjul is The Gambia's capital, but the largest conurbation is Serekunda.

The Gambia shares historical roots with many other west African nations in the slave trade, which was key to the maintenance of a colony on the Gambia river, first by the Portuguese and later by the British. Since gaining independence in 1965, the Gambia has enjoyed relative stability, with the exception of a brief period of military rule in 1994.

An agriculturally rich country, its economy is dominated by farming, fishing, and tourism. About a third of the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day

Official Memorial Ceremony for this Kola Nuts Blog

Dear Readership of Kola Nuts,

I had always put off the final blog post for Kola Nuts since coming back to America on January 8th because I was waiting for some profound revelation to strike me after having had time to digest my Peace Corps experience and also ample time with readjusting to America.

A revelation that I can put into words never came to me with the enough clarity to wordsmith it out, and to make the latter story short, readjustment into America has been tremendously easy and also satisfying.  For my lifestyle, the biggest adaptation to 2013 is that I now am constantly connected with a smartphone.  It' a high tech ball-and-chain with a GPS device.

For people who still wish to follow what I write how I'm trying to create a profession, please visit my new blog at www.herculesbees.blogspot.com ! It is here that I will be documenting the nascent livestock operation that is bee-herding in California.

All you Gambia peeps, add this new blog of mine because I do enjoy reading the posts of yours!

Best,

Scott Jorgensen
