  1. Do you know if that would work in Danao City? Cignal is my provider. They offer NBA 24/7, Fox 2/3 (soccer, auto racing), but no US NFL, MLB, March Madness, etc.
  2. Thanks for that. It is 0850 Saturday. That will make my day!
  3. I was shopping at the religious store in Cebu SM. When I was paying for a Missal and a rosary, the clerk asked me if I was a priest. Of course, my answer was no, but I did explain to her that I am very religious and attend church often.
  4. Much smaller than a Twin Otter, but still a fantastic prototype bush plane that reminds me of the north. The Kenn Borek Airlines TO was not a bush plane, but it has the some of the same capabilities. The airline offered commercial flights between Iqualit, NU and Kimmirt, NU., a 30-45 minute flight. Depending on cargo, mail, luggage and passengers, it could seat a maximum of 22 passengers. With seats removed, the luggage was strapped in, followed by seated passengers. You could see your luggage and know it was not left behind. The cockpit was open and at 6-10,000 feet the pilots would alert passengers when the polar bears, wolves, wolverines, and caribou were running below. The flights were noisy with turbulence from wind sheer and weather.
  5. Tomorrow is Saint Patrick's Day. They will redeem themselves with green beer. Thanks for the joke.
  6. Once again, the world is laughing at the United States. The US military's Esprit De Corp will take a worldwide hit. It is a double whammy for those of us who served honorably. (US Navy, 1964-68)
  7. I guess we should stay on course. The question was about "Senior Citizen" lines. Like I wrote, I am not a citizen. Also, I am retired and do not need to rush anywhere. For me, it is enjoyable to just kick back, chill and not rush through what life I have left.
  8. Right, you are.Thank you. I'll stick with, "A legal resident of a country". It covers more territory.
  9. The operative word is "citizen"...which I am not.
  10. The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious, one examines the society in which he is being educated...James Baldwin

    You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time...Abraham Lincoln          

    Some people die at 25, only to be buried at 75...Benjamin Franklin

      The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.  The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions, to say to himself this is black or this is white, to decide for himself whether there is a God in heaven or not.  To ask questions of the universe, and then learn to live with those questions, is the way he achieves his own identity.  But no society is really anxious to have that kind of person around.  What societies really, ideally, want is a citizenry which will simply obey the rules of society.  If a society succeeds in this, that society is about to perish.  The obligation of anyone who thinks of himself as responsible is to examine society and try to change it and to fight it – at no matter what risk.  This is the only hope society has.  This is the only way societies change.

      He must be living in a very beautiful dream, that there is hope!

  11. Maybe the South American and Mexican drug cartels will be eager to take advantage of the 1.3 billion reductions in USCG funding.
  12. I should add the courts failed initially before you had him put away for the 2nd offense.
  13. You did your job, but the courts failed. There would have been no recidivism if the guy had been given life by the judge.
  14. Before going to bed at night, we unplug the TV and box. We also have taped our webcams.
  15. Sorry, I do not have the quote. I heard on TV a politician say the government will start with the drugs first and eventually add rape, murder, etc.
