  1. Does anyone remember this PSA I think from the 1970s in the USA? It had a big impact on me at the time and I have never forgotten it. I would think something like this would be a good place to start in the Philippines.
  2. Interesting. When we departed Manila June 2 at he airport I handed the immigration officer my passport and waited as he checked it. He then asked for my ACR-I card. He stamped my passport and held up a small sign with large numbers on it and nothing else. P2880. Handed over the cash and were on our way
  3. One way or the other they get your money,...always. No big deal now. I think we have everything in order. Thanks all
  4. Looks I am will be good to go. My friend gave me information for his contact at BI who has assured me my card will be ready for pickup on Friday. Wow! Another close call averted.
  5. Yes I have the receipt and was thinking that might work but then I remembered them telling me if the card did not release in time I could get a waver. However, I like I mentioned, the waver takes 7 days. I'm running out of time. I contacted a friend at the local BI office who used to work at the main office and he seems to think he can speed up the release for me. He is going to let me know later this morning. Hoping!
  6. So as mentioned before in other posts we are going back to the states with a departure date of June 2 @ 8am. After purchasing our tickets I realized my ACR car expires May 27. So a few weeks back we went to BI for renewal. The time frame was close but the officer said if it did not get issued by end of May I could get a waiver. Nice. Today I checked and found it has not been issued and the waiver process takes a week to process. So, may I exit without the ACR card/ waiver, or am I stuck and have to cancel our plans and wait for the waiver or card to be issued to re-book?
  7. It may or may not happen. As others have suggested it would be best to visit here a few weeks or month and see if you really like it. The Philippines can be a nice place to retire but not for everyone. Anyway if you want to really see how fast your med can arrive here, come for the suggested visit and have your sister do a test shipment. But remember, even one shipment can be hit or miss. Still better is to try to find a comparable medication that is available here. Also while on your visit you could visit a doctor and get their suggestion. Another good way to see how things work here..
  8. Received direct deposit today $1400 x 3. All money is a help but it will be paid back one way or another in the future by ???
  9. Well sense this thread has moved off topic from "a new possible medication to treat covid", (and I don't mind), how about a little more fuel for the fire? From the news two days ago. Former top State Dept investigator says COVID-19 outbreak may have resulted from bioweapons research accident https://www.foxnews.com/world/top-state-official-coronavirus-bioweapon-accident
  10. This could be a game changer if it truly works. First-stage testing of the experimental COVID-19 pill called Molnupiravir, by Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, showed promising signs of effectiveness in reducing the virus in patients. "It may be the holy grail on this because it was just studied in phase two trials and it literally stopped the virus in its tracks," he explained. "And there wasn't any virus found in the patients that were studied." https://www.foxnews.com/health/covid-19-pill-preliminary-testing-dr-marc-siegel
  11. Yes a sad time indeed! Condolences to you and the family from ours.
  12. You know Queenie the old saying, "If you want something done right, then do it yourself." This has been my experience over the years and I can do mot repairs myself. However, I have also learned when it pays someone else to do the hard stuff that I just don't like for feel safe doing at my age. Roofing and gutters are just one example for me. Nice to hear your husband has learned the self satisfaction of diy.
  13. Your welcome Tommy. But remember they have trained technicians for most other appliances as well.
