  1. First though this odd tale requires a little back-story to fully appreciate and under the overall layering of unforeseeable consequences, circumstances and little nudges by Karma and an angle or two. My wife purchased the Dinagat Island farm back in 2002, using her company 401K. She was an assembly-line wiring-tech for Goodman a mayor AC/manufacturing company in the US. I was an over-qualified professional yard-niggar with the desire to retire early. So when 'Ike' rolled over the top of us, hammering everything our Nursery had already struggled salvaging from the twin-kick in the ball from 'K

  2. Proud owner of a new chicken plucker. Took them like a month to build this thing at some machine shop in the middle of BFE nowhere. We supplied most of the parts including a drum from a broken washing machine. Finally picked it up yesterday. 1.5 hp motor. We took along a sack of live chickens to test it out. The workers chopped the heads off with a machete and tossed 'em in. Perfectly plucked chickens came out in ten seconds so satisfied with the machine. Since the pandemic started we've been raising chickens to ensure a steady food supply as the markets got nothing anymore. We usua

  4. Stopped by the ferry docks in Toledo on May 31, 2021 and asked if any normality had resumed in passenger travel to Negros. They said that you can travel if you have an S-Pass.. which I had not heard of (having not attempted any travel outside Cebu). Here is what I found: https://www.s-pass.ph/ https://www.negros-occ.gov.ph/news/steps-on-how-to-register-and-use-s-pass/ One interesting thing.. If you go to www.s-pass.ph you will see a "Click Here to Check Requirements" under Are you Travelling. I did this.. and followed their instructions to set Tuburan as my starting point

  5. For one to tell a rich well rounded tale about a companion or couple, most choose starting from the beginning. Mine began as a lowly Corporal, on a beautiful island in the Pacific, during a miserable steamy morning. Where everything was going wronging, until it didn’t…. I was Stationed with 3rd Marines Division, 7th Comm Bn. at the time, for 2-1/2 years on Okinawa Japan from 1984-1987. This being 1985 I would be hanging with a motley group of very gungy overly obsessed fellow Jarhead dive-junkies. All determined to hit all the prime sites around the island we could cram into our agenda. I pos

  6. https://www.golfchannel.com/news/pride-philippines-yuka-saso-19-becomes-countrys-first-us-womens-open-champ SAN FRANCISCO – The Philippines flag soars high in the air at Olympic Club as 19-year-old Yuka Saso becomes the first Filipino woman to win the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open after a three-hole playoff against Japan’s Nasa Hataoka. Saso hoisted the trophy on the eighth green, and tears of joy slipped down her cheeks when she saw her national flag raised by a crowd of Filipinos. She’d always dreamed of this moment and left it up to fate to decide if this would be her specia

  7. A man takes his father to the doctor. At the office, the doctor tells the old man, "I'm sorry, sir, but you have lung cancer. You'll be dead in a year." On the way home, the old man turns to his grief-stricken son and says, "Quit all that cryin'! I'm not depressed. I've lived 75 great years. How 'bout you and me go to my favorite bar and have a couple beers with my friends?" So while the guys are having their beers, the old man breaks the news to his friends. "Fellas," he says, "I went to the Doctor today. He said I'll be dead in a year 'cause I got AIDS." On the way home,

  8. After their boat sinks, two Aussies are left floating around in their lifeboat in the middle of the ocean. All of a sudden one of them spots a funny looking bottle bobbing in the water and pulls it out. He sees something written on the bottle but can't quite read it so he gives it a bit of a rub. SHAZAM.....out pops a genie! "For releasing me from the bottle I will grant you one wish." The guy glances at his mate, smiles and without further hesitation says, "I wish the whole ocean was beer!" The genie claps his hands together and BOOM, there's a blinding light and the genie

  9. Here is the current situation in Cebu. My wife arrived in Cebu on Qatar Airways this evening. We used Mactan Airport's website to assemble all the various paperwork needed for arrival, and she was one of the few people that actually had everything ready that she needed. We had made a reservation at Escario Central Hotel for 7 days because that is what it was at that time. I never changed it, because I was unsure until tonight what the requirement would be. A swab test was administered at the airport and she will stay at the hotel until she gets the results of the test by email.

  12. I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking. My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, "Nothing." The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?" At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions. Finally I pondered an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in th

  13. We harvested about fifty hectares of coconut plantation land this week. Price is sitting around 40. Everyone and their uncle and cousins are climbing trees. Happy days. Whoever said "money doesn't grow on trees" has obviously never done copra business in the tropics.

  14. Here in Masbate, Lazada won’t do COD but Shopee does - so Shopee is the local go to platform. Depending on total order value, it has occasionally been necessary to pay up front I must say I have had a predominantly good experience. I can get things through Shopee that I don’t have a hope of buying locally and, even with the delivery charge, many items are cheaper than if bought locally. I took a chance a while back and ordered a 70k 10KVA generator through Shopee. CC payment wasn’t available but online through Dragonpay was. Delivery was a bit problematic since none of the regular c

  15. The telescope was a big hit. About 20 family and friends, food, beer, marshmallows for the kids and ice cream with a bonfire. Celebrating BIL's birthday and watching the eclipse. After a few beers I got this awesome photo, hope it came through okay....

  18. Everyone knows Astroboy is from Japan. Is this a trick question? Astro Boy, known in Japan by its original name Mighty Atom (Japanese: 鉄腕アトム, Hepburn: Tetsuwan Atomu), is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Osamu Tezuka. Although, name should be changed. How’s that cheap electricity working out for old Fukushimaboy now?
