  2. After 20+ years of marriage and nearly that many years of a few of my wife's extended family members living with us, I thought I had figured out all of the various quirks in Filipinos speaking English. The accent, the usual (but not always) reversal of he/she and him/her, shortening sentences to the point where they sometimes lack even a verb, accents on a different syllable of some words, and other various pronunciations. But either I'm losing my ear for it, or my wife threw a new one at me, a couple of afternoons ago she asked me "do you need brips?" I asked her to say that again and she

  3. Watched it. She comes across as a shallow moron who extrapolates a few blinkered anecdotal points into sweeping generalizations. Most folks I know who retired here from developed countries only regret they hadn't done so earlier. She must have experience listening to the whiners instead of the vast and well-contented majority of retirees. Losers will always complain and they probably did so even more vociferously at home; happy people don't feel the need to bitch and moan and air their grievances. I've spent the vast majority of my working-age years in the Philippines and it's been

  4. The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will. At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Lutheran chur

  6. The good doctor's opinion is that the injections are/were for covid-19 alpha and delta, and does little to nothing for the omicron strain. He believes everyone will eventually get covid/omicron, that there is no stopping it. He also believes from the statistics that this is a good thing because the symptoms, if any, are minimal and yet give a high level of natural immunity, better than the injections can give. This will eventually end the pandemic. Thus, he believes it is time to completely end the injection mandates that are totally outdated and not needed. I hope this helps.

  7. Shoot or Don't Shoot? A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It's after midnight. While en route home, he asks the cabby if he would be a witness, because the man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act. For $100, the cabby agrees. Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabby tip toe into the bedroom. The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back and there is his wife, naked as a jay bird, with a man, totally nude also. The husband puts a gun to the naked man's head. The wife shouts, “Don't do it! I lied when I told

  9. Hmm, there were 991,400 posts 2 years ago so only 10K posts a year? When I did an average, it seems like the years prior to 2020 averaged well over 60K a year. Not sure if that has anything to do with Paul's ownership but declining is the trend. On a positive note, its good to see this forum still going and Congrats to Salty Dog for keeping it that way.

  12. My wholesale supplier just brought me a small 180g free sample of their newest product and asked for my feedback. Looks like a decent salami so I better crack a bottle of red and a few packets of Fita crackers and get to work. Pretty sure it's not low-sodium. salamino mignon campagnoli.

  13. Thanks for all the comments... much appreciated [emoji106] My mom, widow of a 20yr Air Force husband, moved lots. My life started in Bermuda, I'm wanting Cradle-Grave island life. Mom has no friends left, she and my fiance talk a lot via phone or video. She wants to see us get married on the beach. Her health is pretty good for 86, and she is quite ready to move on and see dad (her words) she isn't worried, she wants to see the wedding, after that its all gravy. My fiancée can't wait to meet her... I'm a very lucky man. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  16. whilst trying to restore an old RC bell 47G helicopter, being over 40 years old i could not buy a new cockpit bubble, i decided to make a vac former, which was the easy part, I made a rear cockpit section and the bubble plug from balsa wood and skimmed it with car body filler, the result was good except the bubble plug would deform due to how soft the balsa wood was under the filler, it also started to crack, so i decided i needed a more stable plug, so i cloned it with fibreglass, and thought some may find the process interesting. cleaned up the original plug. divide in h

  22. This is really, really ugly. These were supposed to have accompanied a few fine dinners by now, but languished in a hot Cebu cupboard for two years before we could salvage them. 1998 was not a bad vintage either. Sob. Vinegar anyone?

  23. I recently had the exact thing happen at a PNB atm. "Withdrew" money and it said transaction successful and got a receipt reflecting the new balance. But no cash came out. Instead of dealing with the local banking non-sense I contacted my American bank that issued the Visa card. Within a week they refunded the money. Anything to avoid the bullshit paperwork at Fillo banks. I' m so over them. We never even bothered informing the local bank branch. Try contacting your American bank and lodging a dispute. Their procedures are clear-cut and fast in such cases.
