Ben and Jerry’s Cones for Benin

I just heard in the email that Ben and Jerry’s free cone day is coming up March 23rd.  Free cone day is a great celebration each year where Ben and Jerry’s stores give away ice cream cones, just to be nice (and to be fair, get some good publicity).

Here we are in Cotonou, Benin, without a source of Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey or Coffee Heath Bar Crunch in sight! 

So, this is my cause.  Bring cone day to the hard working US diplomats of Benin!  We can work on our other 200 posts next year!

Write Ben and Jerry’s at their web site and join the Facebook group at!/group.php?gid=286147893213

Your diplomatic representatives working overseas will thank you.

  1. Hi There!

    I just wanted to let you know that I have really enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your pictures.

    You have a very witty, dry sense of humor and you write so well that it is very enjoyable to read your entries.

    My husband and I bid this coming summer and it’s been a joy to read all of your entries about your post, moving to your post, and life at your post.

    It is very, very probable that we will be bidding on posts like yours and since we’ve never been anywhere like them before, I’ve really appreciated what I have learned from your entries. They have taught me a lot!
