  1. Be sure to let us know how it works for you if you decide to buy.
  2. I think the medical professionals refer to that condition as "cranial rectitus". I am not a doctor so not too sure of the spelling.
  3. I wrote a song called Hey Joe, but I then discovered that it was somewhat similar to an exiting song so I dropped the idea. Hey Joe, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better Hey Joe, don't be afraid You were made to go out and get her The minute you let her under your skin Then you begin to make it better And anytime you feel the pain, hey Joe, refrain Don't carry the world upon your shoulders For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah Hey Joe, don't let me down You have found her, now go and get her Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better So let it out and let it in, hey Joe, begin You're waiting for someone to perform with And don't you know that it's just you, hey Joe, you'll do The movement you need is on your shoulder Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah Hey Joe, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her under your skin Then you'll begin to make it Better better better better better better, oh Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Joe
  4. Just a guess. Make the blades out of slightly softer steel than the steel mesh that covers the blades. As the blades move against the protective mesh while shaving, the flat surface of the blade would ever so slowly be honed away. This would keep them flat and with a nice square sharp edge. I expect it took a lot of trial and error to get the right combination of metals. I suppose you could also coat the underside of the protective mesh with something really hard, maybe some type of ceramic composite?
  5. There is a website that is owned by an expat whose skin is SO THIN it would make an onion cry with envy. I will not mention the site or the owner. Suffice to say that it makes me all the more appreciative of this site, it's owner, the moderators, and all those who contribute. Even when we agree to disagree, it is very rare that someone will "go off the rails". My hat is off to all of you.
  6. The question that kept coming into my mind as I read the news was "Why in the hell would anyone in their right mind want to visit North Korea?" It seems that people from the USA, and other democratic countries, seem to feel they have certain "rights" even when they are outside their native borders. The more liberal the political climate of the home country, the more likely they are to get into trouble and then cry foul. I am reminded of the tourist, I think he was Dutch, who was sent to jail here in the Philippines for several years because he had a couple of marijuana cigarettes in his possession. He and his friends were outraged that he could be treated in such a manner. When traveling to another country it would be a good idea to remember those infamous words that Dorthy spoke in the Wizard of Oz. "Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore."
  7. I knew she could travel and exit/enter on anywhere on the US passport, but we both had some concern about "how things are done here in the Philippines". As many of us have found out sometimes the policies and procedures of the government can be confusing.
  8. Thanks OnMyWay, great information - exactly what we needed to know.
  9. As others have mentioned, it is the humidity that really makes it feel so hot here. That is why many of the weather reports list the temperature and also the "feels like" temperature which increase as the humidity rises. Example: When the temperature is 32 (very common here even in wet season and can be much higher) Humidity % / feels like temp 40/32.3 50/34.4 60/37.1 70/40.4 80/44.4 90/49 How to deal with it and can you acclimate? The answer is going to vary with each person here. I am fairly well acclimated after being here 4 years this October. This is the first dry season where I have not had to use the air conditioner at night. When we moved here I used fans as required during the day and aircon only at night to sleep. Each month I would increase the aircon temperature by one degree. If I had trouble sleeping I would dial it back down to the previous setting and try again the following month. When you reach an aircon temp of 28-30 or so, try using just a fan for sleeping. This worked for me but each person will suffer from the heat to a different degree. What most everyone will tell you is to use fans to keep the air moving, wear a hat when outside, and try to stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. I cannot emphasize how important it is to STAY HYDRATED!
  10. My wife, who is dual citizen, will be traveling to the USA on a fund raising trip for our ministry. She will be gone for about 4 weeks. We are looking for advice on which passport would be the better choice for travel.
  11. Is that anything like: Rubber crutch in a polio ward Screen door in a submarine Tits on a boar
  12. . . . and the video was posted on YouTube before she hit the water. After being laughed out of the Hells Angels, George became a life time member/supporter of LGBT and changed his name to Georgette. He/She went on to become famous, had his/her own television reality series, and wrote a book "I am Georgette". People still laugh and talk Georgette about having big feet and "man hands" but her manager told the press they are just a bunch of jealous redneck @__holes.
  13. So basically we need to file the FBAR or we will be FUBAR.
  14. South China Islands. Then the Chinese can stop building their own islands and the politicians can all retire with their vote bonus.
  15. Mark - I forgot to mention one thing in my reply to your original post. Just in case your wife has not told you yet; "You are also NOT allowed to purchase anything from door to door vendors (fish, bread, wicker furniture, etc.). Just trying to keep you out of any future trouble my friend. I offer this advice based on experience, you can learn a lot from another person's mistakes.
