  1. I'm sure it would be more enjoyable to be spending all your time and money , building a swimming pool instead of a wall ... But the sad truth is reality , population growth in the Philippines is almost 2% a year , concrete Jungle .
  2. Masanobu Fukuoka (福岡 正信?) (2 February 1913 – 16 August 2008) was a Japanese farmer and philosopher celebrated for his natural farming and re-vegetation of desertified lands. He was a proponent of no-till, no-herbicide grain cultivation farming methods traditional to many indigenous cultures,[1] from which he created a particular method of farming, commonly referred to as "Natural Farming" or "Do-nothing Farming".[2][3][4] Fukuoka was the author of several Japanese books, scientific papers and other publications, and was featured in television documentaries and interviews from the 1970s onwards.[5] His influences went beyond farming to inspire individuals within the natural food and lifestyle movements. He was an outspoken advocate of the value of observing nature's principles. One Straw Revolution , straw and clover seeds
  3. Must be that pure virgin olive oil , drives them rats nuts ,, I bought a live wire cage at ace hardware works great , dirty rats get a bath in a bucket of water afterwards
  4. Brother in-law is in the Army , he was telling me they patrol the remote mountains ask the locals if they notice any NPA in the area the answer is always nope ..2 weeks later they return dress as NPA ask the same locals if they notice any Military in the area same answer nope ..
  5. Hopefully they figured out what not to do . when landing at SFO .Asiana airlines 2013
  6. You can get free Gun training online one of my favorite YouTube ch Active Self Protection ..
  7. I bought a older landcruser built like a tank can go anywhere dark tint so they can't view a foreigner driving it , parts are easy to fine, easy to work on, diesel,,, the same type of LC you see all over the world , make's a good bug-out vehicle to the mountain retreat .
  8. Yes I was thinking along the same line ,, Just hopping to find an expat with a bit more honesty then your average Filipino or Chinese I really don't need pedigree paper works
  9. Any expats into the dog breeding business ? I looked at a few puppies from a Chinese merchant but they didn't look healthy being cooped up in a small caged
  10. I was drinking with a old timer expat in Cebu ,, he told me , " I get more pleasure taking a good sh't then I do from f'cking these girls " Thinking to myself , hope I never get that old lol .. Ten yrs later , I still think about that after a good sh't
  11. Funny you said my Filipina 3 times in your post , just wondering if she calls you her American ? maybe a tattoo of her likeness on your forearm with the words my Filipina , gives you a feeling of security in her absents I agree it's best to have a local/family member looking out for your best interest , my Wife's a real bulldog if somebody try's to cheat ​me/us out of a few peso's .. visiting family in Dipolog Mindanao area , having wife's uncle the policeman with us is a feeling of security 4 sure
  12. Funny , But times have changed Sure if you can hunt for you food , you living good ... but honestly , how many hunt for their family food in the modern world today ? Processed meat includes hot dogs, ham, bacon, sausage, and some deli meats. It refers to meat that has been treated in some way to preserve or flavor it. Processes include salting, curing, fermenting, and smoking. Red meat includes beef, pork, lamb, and goat. Twenty-two experts from 10 countries reviewed more than 800 studies to reach their conclusions. They found that eating 50 grams of processed meat every day increased the risk of colorectal cancer by 18%. That’s the equivalent of about 4 strips of bacon or 1 hot dog. For red meat, there was evidence of increased risk of colorectal, pancreatic, and prostate cancer. I hate to be a Debbie downer type ......But if your living in the PI and need protein native chicken , fish, home grown baboy , or goat a wise choice
  13. Ignorance is bliss .My Son early 20s visited us in Cebu province met a girl and decided to visit her family south of Davao , while riding the bus heading south armed soldiers boarded the bus pointing at him , he was thinking kidnapping turns out they were military demanding him to get off the bus for his own safety at that point , his girlfriend convince the soldiers that her family would see to his safety , turns out her family was NPA living high up in the mountains . He had a great time , and returned safe .
  14. Koreans killing each other , That's the best news I have heard in months about the Philippines
  15. Come to the Philippines its a BANG
