      I suspect you are probably right as I rarely do things the easy way. I have a marginal understanding of HTML5, CSS and Javascript at best, and this project will most likely be my only website build. The layout I designed for my own specific needs. Out of respect for the forum owner I refrained from going into too much detail, on all the particulars of intended usages. Only to discuss a design of a site I had wanted to build for years, and the layout I wanted. And when I started this thread in mid April of 2019 I received sound advice from members, and for that purpose I feel the thread served that purpose. Through this thread I was allowed to basically think aloud about the project. With the thread focused solely on the (Designing Phase) of this project.    I have though throughout this thread been working to figured out how to code the particular components. Some which I posted, but perhaps may have extended beyond the original intention of this thread. And there lies a conundrum bordering on ethics issues. Such as unethical self-promotion infringement whether purposeful or unintentional, is merely a gray-area, as still yielding a same result. So I chose a personal policy of 'refrainment' to insure no infringements. I thank the forum and staff for allowing this thread to run it's natural course, as other forums may not have allowed such a thread. And as a time will soon come where my own self-interests may directly conflict with that of this forum site, I will now respectfully choose to refrain from posting future threads or post comments on possible conflicting subject matter on this forum site. This to insure good standing with site ownership and staff.

      With recent polling suggesting only about a third of the local populace willing to be vaccinated I'm not so sure this will be a problem. By Q3 2021 plenty of vaccine from whatever various sources should have trickled down even into the deep province areas. My guess is they'll end up having to bribe people with rice and sardines and stuff just to accept vaccinations. Thus, they'll be plenty of vaccine floating around for whatever foreign resident is willing to get the jabs.  As an aside, I think it would be imprudent for a foreigner to be publically vocal in questioning the efficacy of whatever vacccine becomes available. The government will have a big enough public health challenge getting folks to sign up for this. They certainly don't need and won't appreciate us mouthing off (not suggesting anyone here is). A lot of local folks, especially in smaller communities, will be paying attention to how foreign residents choose to handle getting vaccinated. Probably best to show confidence in getting your shot or if you don't have that confidence just keeping your mouth shut. I've talked to the RHU (Rural Health Unit) doctor in my small town about this. He said when the time comes he'll make sure to 'advertise' the fact that the sole foreign resident in town is keen to get the jab.

      Hi, Jim this is Lynette.  I just realize that you live in Tisa, Labangon.  I have a property there and very helpful nephew name Junie (09321037886 ) who has a car in Lower South Hills area.  If you need any help let me call him.  I already talk to him.  He knows a place where you can buy fresh produce (Carbon price) near Labangon.
