  1. Past hour
  2. same here nt that wet at all boss is right looks another one is forming The only surprising thing is the usual north trend direction has been changed to south east for the last two weather fronts. The third one just almost two weeks away looks like being way bigger but would need a south east trend to kick in to make it a threat......will it, won't it
  3. Power watched these too, except having no part 5 was like opening a beer that was only half filled. The episode was flagged for copyright violation, probably the music, which I thought would have been paid for by the producers. YT has some weird copyrite crap going on.
  4. I hadn't seen the series before, thanks Lamoe, power watched 'em in two days. It should be noted that in episode 1 at 1:04:16 when Kate says to Martin "Blow Dick", she actually means "to hell with Richard".
  5. If he turned his headlights off, then it might have enough juice to start.. ( older cars only )
  6. Today
  7. Almost over now, it's somewhere north of Coron. Still windy here but not enough to do any damage. Lost 2 Papaya trees and there is some banana trees on the ground in the area. Surprisingly very little rain has fallen. Power disappeared just after midnight as expected. All in all not too bad here.

    Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

    Our auto shop teacher had a car coil wired to one of the steel benches with the switch on his desk of course. We all just laughed when he decided to wake someone up. Can you imagine the cry babies and the parents of same these days if that were to happen. One teacher even hung me by the belt on the back of my pants on those hooks that slid across the top of the blackboard. He left me there the whole hour, LOL No big deal. That was about 1960 or so,

    Current Price for Copra

    Good on you for paying them fairly and decent. It pisses me off to read/ hear of tight arsed expats, many living off their governments tit, who begrudgingly pay miserable minimum amounts to employ locals to work for them, often in extreme conditions.
  15. Watched the Die Hard vid, really liked the series - what happened to suspense movies? Take a look at the list - Not on it is Wait Until Dark (1967) has the all time "splash the person behind you in the theater with your drink moment".

  16. wind has picked up this morning and classes have been cancelled................... it is on line tuition from home and they are told to stay home, my boss is giggling like a school kid who has just cut class and got away with it. I suppose as a teacher she has!!

    Hearing my wife's stories of her lolo, the Philippine forests are like a pharmacy if you know what you're doing.

    Current Price for Copra

    Wondered how the payout worked if you hired somebody. Family used to harvest on our land till Yolanda took down most of the trees. 12,400 vs the 300 a day laborer pay is pretty good imo.

    A few years ago I had to go to the hospital because of a kidney stone. Worst pain ever. I was prescribed something for the urinary tract and potassium sulfate(?). I stopped taking the medicine after 2 days because I could not even walk up a flight of stairs without stopping to catch my breath. My wife told me to drink a tall glass of buko juice every morning to get rid of the stone. The stone either passed or dissolved after a few days after drinking the buko juice. I was peeing almost normal after about 4 days. I will not underestimate the medicinal value of buko juice. It saved me a lo

    We've had that stuff running into the ground all weekend. I do get the workers to fill up some glass pitchers a few times a day when the harvest is on. They say it's healthy but I reckon that's over-blown marketing talk. It is tasty though (especially mixed with rum, haha).

    It is. But it's not a full time job, it couldn't be as it's hard work indeed. First you climb the trees and get the coconuts, crack them open with an axe, and use a tool to extract the 'meat'. Then you gotta fire-smoke the meat and then bag it for sale to the buyer. We just did 4 hectares and it took the crew* two and a half days. The smoking is done overnight and you gotta be awake to tend the fire. They're pretty much awake and working for several days. *Two guys working their tails off and they had their kids helping out (school hasn't restarted here; not even distance learning). They

    Seen the YouTube videos, harvesting is pretty labor intensive!
