Charlie Courtois

I read, write, and think a lot! I am a retired entrepreneur of 30 plus years. Since 1999 I have volunteered in my church and  Kairos, a prison ministry. My professional skills are best defined as an excellent conceptual thinker, and I made my mark as an executive search person, placing CEO's, CFO's, COO's and other senior executives.

Married to my second wife for 38+ years with six grandchildren, and live in Forsyth, GA, since 2001. I am a world traveler who has made a living in Europe, the Far East, and the United States buying and selling goods all around the world.

I am multi-lingual: German, Spanish and French

Hiya Charlie! 

So nice to see you back. I hope life has been good and you are enjoying it to the max. 

Nothing beats seeing an old friend again.

LUNCH JOKE
The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading. After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes, the teacher asked, "Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude...? After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, "I guess you'd be eating alone."

Hi Everyone,
I'm back again. Yesterday I decided against paying for my personal web site, and I decided to post bits and pieces on several blog sites. In so doing I discovered how fast time passes...and I had just about abandoned blogging on everything but posting just a few things on Facebook...I have given up playing golf daily just because almost no one walks the course, and that was why I played the game. Now I don't walk the six miles, which is considerably less than the two 20 minute walks I usually do.

Writing and blogging will be my daily routine now...so you will all get to see my wrinkled ole face once more! la de da

Hi, Charlie. I just read about your recent medical victory. I am happy for you and hope that your good health continues.

It is good to see you and have sent a friendship request.

I will keep you in my prayers.

You're on my friends list there too, I believe, Charlie. Congrats on beating the Big C. My daad had the same and had surgery late last year-and is doing well. He'll be 80 in June-and they say, if you get older you 'll get P.Cancer......guess I'd rather have it than not get there, my friend!

Hi Charlie - it's great to see you on here. It's a great place to hang out and as you can see a bunch of 'us' are doing just that.

Hi, Charlie! You can call me Bitey. I'm still the same Bitemore... just a whole lot happier here than I was on the Vine, more's the pity. What really did it for me was Grae's article being collapsed 12 times (as of midnight last night, probably more by now) without any staff interceding. I logged off the Vine 4 days ago, and won't log back in until I see some indication that anyone in charge actually gives a flying you-know-what. You're gonna find a LOT of your friends here, with more arriving almost daily!
