  1. I've been to Costa Rica but it was a long time ago... Friends that moved there 20 years ago say it's not there same anymore... I'm presently in Davao... We rarely see the storms others do... But, yes, we've had a few earthquakes lately... Still, major damage from these had been light until the big one hit late last year... But even then, damage was still much lower than the areas that experience the typhoons... As to crime..? Very very low here... Honestly? I find the Davao area my preference for anywhere in the world I've been... At last count? That's 134 countries... Yeah, retired Air Force... 😂
  2. RIP Neil... Neal Peart was a local for me... Hagarsville, Ontario, Canada.. And I had met the original members when John Rutsey was the drummer before Neil actually joined Rush... So now both drummers for Rush have passed away...
  3. I was surprised..! I googled cheap flights from Philippines and found my best source was to scroll down the page until I found the Google listing... Input dates, etc, and I got the best prices out of any of the sites...
  4. I learned quite a bit about doctors here... Most GPs in a rural setting have the training of a good nurse back in Canada... Not that I wouldn't listen to the doc, our nurses are just that good... If you have one of these for your doctor? Find one who is willing to admit when it's beyond his ability and is willing to refer you to a specialist... Another thing I learned.. cuts, open sores, etc? If you don't have a good topical ointment, you can always use water with a light touch of bleach... Or, interestingly enough, a water-reduced wash with an organic apple cider vinegar, such as Bragg's... With the sores on my chest, abdomen and sides from the MRSA, the doc laughed about trying to use the cream... I would need 5 tubes each time and apply it 3x a day... She told me about the bleach and ACV wash instead... I was lazy and just poured ACV straight on and rubbed it around... Worked great.!
  5. 5 years plus here minus an overnight at the airport in Singapore... I don't say I want to live here... I do say I love it here... It's so beautiful and the people are so friendly... The only thing I've been asked after that was if I had a girlfriend... I admitted I did and got her phone number just in case it didn't last... That was a couple years ago...
  6. I'm not sure how this works for a franchise though it's probably an easy jump from what I am familiar with... And that is where a partnership is formed between 2 people... One (you) own all the product and equipment personally and the other looks after the licence and taxes... If the business breaks down, change the locks and remove the sign... Get a new partner and start again... Same agreement... Pli know a few people who are doing this...
  7. Y plates are usually region vii - Central Visaya...
  8. On a Mac? The best one is the one included in the OS... On Windows..? One of the Dragon products... Both are very good for a non-accented North American voice... Like a gameshow host or newscaster... (The best are always Canadian... Hehe..!). Any other inflection in your voice and it's hit and miss if it will work properly for you... The Man version can handle these better than the Dragon products but it's still... Yup..!
  9. Ever heard of MRSA..? An infection that none of the 'cillan group of antibiotics will touch..? Almost killed me a few months ago... It, and a few other antibiotic resistant infections are becoming more common... Why..? Overtreatment and eventual resistance is developed by common infections... And the SuperBugs prevail...
  10. The first quake this weekend was 6.9 and then revised to 6.8... the second was 5.something... 5.9..? I forget now... All of the quakes over the last few months have been shallow and inland... Just 2 plates mildly bumping against each other, thus no need to worry about tsunamis... Which is good as my fiancee lives beside the big plywood factory in Toril... Right by the water..! (I'm just over a mile from her and inland... Just across the MacArthur Hwy...). It's been interesting but not all that bad... Aftershocks are continuous and probably will be for a few days...
  11. Part of the problem is that we only hear of the bottom feeders being busted or killed... Why? Simple... It's PNP who's doing the bust... And just about everything they do is picked up by the news... The big jackals? They are being sought by a different police agency... One that doesn't have to have a news report when they go to the cr... Major cases are built up for these people... And unfortunately there are still enough buddies of theirs in position to know about this and pass that information on... Next time you hear about the big guys? Their whereabouts are unknown...
  12. The heaviest you can get
  13. Because cream is thicker in most other countries... Hehe
  14. I've been there once and it was a couple years ago... I do remember seeing cows in a couple fields...
  15. The problem with their report..? They don't stress that the undercover cop was shot and killed first... Nor do they say who shot the child, just infer it was the police without knowing the facts... I stopped reading anything from the UNHRC...
