  1. If it is an option I vote for LP. For the reason that LP can be stored for as long as the container it is in stays intact with no degradation, unlike gas which has a short storage life. OK OK I know gas can be treated, so you treat it. Will it last 5 decades or more like LP will?
  2. I was starting to suspect the hole in the ozone layer affecting peoples minds. However looking at the demographics of the US it appears the disparity between those on city water and well water does need some investigation.
  3. These XXXX would get that $1000 out in a couple days! When the wife is out of sorts I do mention, you know you could be married to so and so
  4. One of the biggest drawbacks I see with Philippinas marrying western men and settling in the US is the men. I have met far too many that I would not let adopt a dog, matter of fact if they were puppys I could call the SPCA and have them removed. How they managed to get to the PI's and get through the immigration process is beyond me?
  5. I suggested one of the Thai expat forums and still do. My experience at Bumrungrad was it is a modern facility with a very competent staff. If I came down with anything out of the ordinary I would be on the first plane to Thailand. Do you really think they have a Dermatologist answering email inquirery's? Your email was likely answered by a Philippina in a call center in Dumaghetti.
  6. It is a little known fact the Columbus had 4 ships. Tails of the 4th one are shrouded in mystery as it has not been officially discussed after it fell off the edge.
  7. I should have qualified that with "in the US" with jeepneys and motorcycle taxis and such it would not be an issue in the PI's.
  8. My mom did not drive. I was her chauffeur until I was 38 years old. I would NEVER be with a woman who could not drive!
  9. As a retired engineer it is fun go go through short stretches, however same as in a car you cannot miss signals so in long stretches may have to slow down. Chunks of ice or large pieces of snow could kill someone, in this situation the train should have been slowed down, I am sure someone will be called on the carpet and disciplined for it! We did have one engineer who would do something like this his nick name was "Charlie the Prick" a well deserved title.
  10. A kindred spirit, Inquisitive and a seeker of knowledge, I admire that!
  11. It was tough to get her going. Fortunately at the time we lived in a rural area of FL with little traffic, that helped alot. In urban areas the timidity was nerve wracking and took some time. At 8 years in the US she started using the freeways daily to go to classes in the next town. That was a big accomplishment, many of her friends still will not drive on expressways even being here and driving much longer than her. Having a mini van, she said it was too big to drive, I told her all she had to do was step on the pedals and steer, not carry it : ) Of course being so tiny she can barely see over the wheel does not help. Slowly but surely, day by day, step by step.
  12. Oh my, some CA politician is going to criminalize "military revenge p*orn" it is a crime you idiot, someone just shoot CA and put them out of their misery. 75% of Kalifornians make the rest look bad! After exhaustive web searches I could only find pic's of men, I won't bother posting a link.
