I was in the local municipal building one day last week to watch my adopted son get a gold medal for winning in a Tae Kwon Do competition. It was the beginning of the day and of course the Philippines National Anthem was played. I was in the atrium with a number of Filipinos/Filipinas and as the music began, my wife and I stood to pay our respects. Unfortunately there were six others who sat on the benches and made no effort to stand...in the beginning. As the song progressed, one by one, they slowly begrudgingly stood, except for a young Filipina who continued texting during the entire anthem. I may not be a citizen from this country, but am respectful enough that if I hear the anthem played I stand in place and face the music. I would do it in my home country, so why not here.
I won't even go into talking about those Americans who won't stand for the National Anthem in their home country in protest for whatever reason....but suffice it to say, they would not get away with it in this country.
Good morning! I recall that you mentioned that you were thinking of having solar panels installed at your house on Camotes. Did this happen and can you please tell me where you got your solar panels from?
My wife and I have a house on Camotes and we are interested in installing solar panels on our roof.
Thank you in advance!
Just stopped by to see whats going on here. Sad to see so many people have passed...lifes been busy here but might slow down as I drew my retirement. I'll see how well that works out lol..headed back to Cebu for the month of November ( maybe a bit longer)
Just thought I would drop by and say hi (finally remembered my login )
Just a quick update and to report that rumors of my demise have been grossly exagerated.
While I will never be back to 100%, I am doing quite nicely, or better than expected
There are several things I am not able to do and one is to fly for more than about 4 hours due to cabin pressure, and that really pisses me of as the Philippines has been close to me for nearly 50 years.
The other is I can no longer play the piano, which was my means of relaxation and stress relieving.
I strongly believe that being active, in good health and reasonably fit has enabled me to get back this far.
BTW, I am 82 in a few months and going better than many younger than me.
Cheers and Keep safe guys
