  1. Today
  2. Wow - worth checking the details carefully. Just before Covid started, we were planning to take the kids to Disneyland. Now three whole years have passed and the oldest one is maybe getting too old for Disneyland. Still, there are lots of other things to do there. Wonder if the British Food Store is still open so I can get some Marmite?

  4. I'm fine, but not sure about those along the Gulf Coast where it came ashore.

    Making a will

    It is common for Notaries here to add on 1% on a will. I avoid that by not putting any values on things named in the will, plus insisting that I won't pay any 1% fee. Stand Your Ground Boys !!!! 😊😊😊

  11. I know. I was just making a joke.

    Snake in the House

    Although the picture is extremely out of focus, I would bet on the snake being a bronzeback, which is non-venomous and totally harmless. They eat geckos and other small critters. The color on the back varies, and a green back would not be unheard of.

    Poor Old British Pound!

    The pound fell from about 1.08 to about 1.03 to the dollar, and then shot up again to about 1.07. All in one trading day! Those are very unusual movements in such a short time for a major currency pair. Currencies are driven as much by speculators as by anything else, so it will be interesting to see whether the speculators feel sterling has bottomed out, and start buying up millions of those cheap pounds. For the first time in many months, I wouldn't now recommend converting pounds to dollars. But not the opposite way either. Best to wait a bit and see... Wise has very good exchange rate

    Loaded gun under your pillow?

    Interesting. Can you own the bow without the arrow or the arrow without the bow? Perhaps you could own a bow and your wife could own an arrow and you could borrow it from time to time?
  21. I've been using it for a few days now and while not perfect my monitor is a lot more easy on my eyes.
  22. interesting fact What you should know is that by 1903 the cocaine content in Coke was removed, and coca leaf became just another flavor component. Today, Coca Cola still has coca in the recipe, but the coca leaves are decocainized, meaning there are no alkaloids present. You can purchase coca leaf powder in our on-line store which has full alkaloids. https://www.grunge.com/314638/the-secret-deal-that-coca-cola-has-with-the-dea/

  24. Does anyone know of a cardroom in Cebu that runs Texas Holdem games, either ring games or tournaments? I recall that years ago the Waterfront on Mactan had what looked like a nice poker room (did a walkthrough but did not have time to play), and online it looks like the downtown Waterfront also offers poker, but it also looks like they only offer 7 card stud. I recall that stud is more popular in the Philippines so it might be difficult to find a holdem game.

    TIN (tax identification number)

    Just go to the BIR office near Ayala and ask them.. I THINK you can get it easily while you are there.. and it should be free... it's JUST a number.
  27. Awesome. Congrats! So you're quarantined in a Barili hotel?

      Yes, I've just been "midwife" for our cat. Only one kitten so far. Nice to watch the birth, slightly worrying when the kitten didn't seem to know how to suck, but it soon learnt it. The mother didn't need a "midwife" for any practical help but she sure needed a lot of stroking and comforting!

      THE HUMAN-ANIMAL CONNECTION Animals have been known to connect with humans in ways that fellow humans cannot, and we love that about them! Have you ever seen a service dog tirelessly care for its owner, or a kitten cuddled up with a napping toddler? Every pet owner understands the satisfaction of caring for an animal and in turn having that animal care for them. The benefits reach far beyond loyal companionship. Many animals regularly encourage us to get outside in the fresh air and exercise, they teach children responsibility, and instill in us a nurturing temperament. For some people having an animal by their side is more than just a joy, it is a necessity. They may find that a pet can provide the needed emotional support to carry on meaningful, productive lives, when they would otherwise not be able to do so. Medical professionals have seen the benefit and have prescribed emotional support animals to patients with both physical and emotional disabilities. Companion animals are often brought into hospital wards to put a smile on the faces of patients and to lift their spirits. The effects of animals on our emotional and physical wellbeing are undeniable. While we may not completely understand how these animals are able to touch our lives in such profound ways, it is something we have come to rely on.

      Thank you Cookie for the information on Mactan Island, it sounds like no power or internet yet.  The Expat had to leave because the brother in-law in the compound was threatening to kill him, plus he had some minor I think health issues that needed to be addressed.
      Now this same brother in-law is blocking people from visiting his wife within this compound, he can't even contact the PNP or Municipality because nobody seems to be up and running.
