We have regular business clients now in Poland, Ireland, Oklahoma USA and South Carolina USA. Not much time left for the fun stuff. But I am proud that during these hard economic times our business is growing faster.

I, Glenn Keith Madden am originally from South Carolina. I lived in Ware Shoals until the age of ten. Then we moved to Lauren's SC until I was old enough to join the Army National Guard at age 17, At which time I was on my own.
Long story short ... I am going to jump to the present for the introduction. Later I will add in stories of my life and adventures.
I am presently and have been for years living in Indonesia. I had married a woman from Bandung. She traveled around the world with me some until our daughter came along. This is the start of how I ended up living in Indonesia. My wife had been in and out of the USA on a tourist visa valid for 5 years multiple entry. When she got pregnant with our daughter I realized she was going to over stay the maximum per visit of 6 months so I applied for her a green card. This made her legal in the USA because the papers were in the immigration office. Well it took them 6 months to send me the papers back and tell me the office I sent it to could not process it and for me to use my local office. South Carolina has few immigration offices and there were no local offices. By this time my daughter had been born and my wife wanted to return to Indonesia with me for a short visit with family. I knew if I re-applied for the green card she could not leave the US until it was processed so we decided to wait until we came back from indonesia.
We left the USA without any problems. It was when we decided to come back to the US that the immigration cancelled my wife's visa due to the previous overstay. Anyway long story short I fought their decision for two years before I packed my bags and moved to Indonesia to be with my family and started my own business. That is where I have been the past 8 or 9 years.
My first 5 years here I lived in Bandung with my wife and daughter. About three years ago a group out Tulsa Oklahoma asked me to partner with them developing a furniture supply line from Jepara.
Our business is really starting to grow and over the past three years we have found ways to improve our quality. The talents of the Indonesians with some guidance can exceed those of anyone in the world building furniture.
For now I am just going to put some old writings I have done several years ago and get the web site up and running as Glenn Keith Madden.com Over time I will be using this site to write my own biography and hopefully have some interesting stuff for anyone interested in world travel.

THINK ABOUT IT:
What Is Heaven
All good and perfect is not heaven.
You would have no reference so eventually all would be lost;
Per say all Bad is not Hell.
What is Heaven?
Heaven is a perfect balance of good and evil.
You have one man, one woman in paradise.
Today the man cheats the woman and the woman give the man everything.
Next day the woman cheats the man and the man gives the woman everything.
and so on, so on for all eternity.
But maybe heaven is not the same for everyone. When I really think about it I am so thankful for what I have in my little un-balanced world and I see that the grass is not that much greener over there than it is here.
SMARTEST MAN OR MAYBE WOMAN
The smartest man in the world long time ago bumped his head on the cave ceiling. It was at this monent he saw a light, maybe stars. The smartest man in the world realized he got a whole lot more from everyone else if he did not know how to do it.
CHECK BACK ONCE A YEAR AS MAYBE I HAVE POSTED SOMETHING NEW.
