    A young doctor moved out to a small community to replace an older doctor who was retiring. The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his house-call rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor. At the first house a woman complained, "I've been a little sick to my stomach." The older doctor said, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick." As they left, the younger doctor remarked, "You didn't even examine that woman!" and then asked, "How did you come to the diagnosis so quickly?" "Ah! You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash. That was what has probably been making her sick." The younger doctor replied, "Pretty clever! If you don't mind, I think I'll try that at the next house." Arriving at the next house, both physicians spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She said that she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, "I'm feeling terribly run-down lately." "You've probably been doing too much for the church," the younger doctor told her. "Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps." As they left, the elder doctor said, "I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, as she is very active in the church." Then he asked, "But how did you arrive at it?" "I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the pastor under the bed.

    Older members will recall the great effort LINC member Dutch Piet put in to help little Bohol girl Jamaica who had horrific facial defects. Piet posted 'Heartbreaking' the story of Jamaica who's problems were so bad that she required several extensive surgeries, something that was not going to happen without outside help. LINC member support, the Lions Club of Toolamba Victoria, some private funding and Piet's amazing dedication, saw the Cebu doctors perform a miracle., but there was more to do as Jamaica got older. Dutch Piet's efforts were cut short by suffering his own medical issues and I just hope he is ok now. One of our boys (seen here with Piet after one of the ops) has taken it on himself to finish the job. He is now on his third 'Jamaica' trip from Oz to Bohol / Cebu and today is with Jamaica and her Lola visiting the doctors in Cebu hoping to get some tidy up things done and a prosthetic eye fitting arranged. Two reasons for this post: Firstly to acknowledge the amazing work that Piet did to help coordinate Jamaica and hundreds of other kids so they could receive surgery, and secondly to reach out to him in the hope he is now well again and to let him know that the work he started continues. You are a bloody saint Dutchy.

    I first came to the Philippines back in 1968. However, i wasn't until 2009 when I came back to see if the Philippines might hold my future. I met my future wife. We clicked on a lot of different levels. I fell in love with her. I asked her to marry me. We decided to live here for a while, and we are still here.

    I figure all we can do is live in a safe environment and not only get along with the locals, but be as handy as a shirt pocket. If the powers at be pouch the whole works and hostilities breakout? Then you really have only two options which is stay or leave. If the US decides to defend the Philippines, then the Philippines needs to be considered worth the cost of blood and treasure. But that is way above our pay grade as it will surely be determined solely based on America's best interest. Though sad as it is, that is what the determining factors should be. How many trillions and thousands of lived has the US already sunk into this ungrateful money pit? As China say, ''A spinless culture of thieving chest-thumping wall-pissers and cheap house maids.''.... So while Pinoys gallantly yelled ''Yanks Go Homes'' and doing everything to separate themselves from our influence. And with all the Chest beating and undeserved yet unearned demands for our respect. And even insulting the US by opting to dance with the dragon. They want to snap their fingers and expect what? China has a million man army, growing navy, growing navy, nukes and hone field advantage. They also still have serious stay in Vietnam, are best buds with N. Korea (million man army, navy, nukes), and besties with Russia. That already enough nukes to burn the world more than a few times over, not including all the toys the US has to play. That is a lot of bang for such little brains with tiny dicks. Not like that that could get out of hand real fast... So does the US want to risk WW3 on an old Pinoy belief that A Pinoy is worth dying for? Will Americans believe a Pinoy is worth their sons and daughters being killed for a Pinoy? Or will the US decide that the Philippines is even worth fighting with? My line is in the sand and my wife and I will remain here of the proverbial S**T hits the fan. But I can not honestly say that I would want my son sacrificed when the Philippines has done so little while demanding too much. My little slice of paradise is a long way from Manila. I have coconuts to plant, lobsters to raise and plenty of hooks to bait, so i will keep getten on with living and take whatever the good Lord sends my way... No need for obsession, depression, anxiety or hyperhidrosis... just smile like a loon and sing ''And it’s one, two, three, What are we fighting for? Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn, Next stop is the Big Kabam! And it’s five, six, seven, Open up the pearly gates, Well there ain’t no time to wonder why, Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.'' What me worry?

    Grandma is 88 years old and still drives her own car. She writes to her Grand-daughter... Dear Grand-daughter, The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker... I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper... Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed! I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. I found that lots of people love Jesus! While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love! There must've been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach. I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably an Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!! A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! Will write again soon, Love, Grandma
