  1. Superb service it was too Jack....I am of course still airbourne with the 6 week flight ......landed safely in the land of Oz and was met at Hobart airport by my son Noel in his red E-type Jag...continuing top drawer pick up service! I took it for an enjoyable drive Sunday....magnificent experience!
  2. Fully agree Jack .....as a hoarder I would have major storage problems in these tiny houses
  3. Not sure I'm posting this in the right way.... but here goes... We have a get together every 2nd Thurs of the month at Ching Loong resturant on the boulevard in Duma. Some of the group have mentioned meeting at the red tables in Valcencia on the last Thurs of the month as well. How about a trial run this coming Thurs 25th April at Valencia? usual time 1pm onward. I submit this for the groups consideration. Cheers
  4. EPL is shown on one of the BEIN channels 1,2,and 3 The 3 BEIN channels are only available in Cignal's HD POSTPAID P1,999 plan it would appear.
  5. The key, apart from having a lovely fiance 45mins walk away as an incentive and those sea exercises together, seems to be getting up at 5am before the sun rises... I guess your in bed asleep by 9pm? This is what I need to do but I have never been an earlier riser.. hmmm..let reword that..bouncy and bushy tailed at 5am! Congrats on your exercise regime at 70 inspiring... many thanks.
  6. Sorry Jack.... I was being too formal missed the son off Peterson I have duly gone to stand in the corner for my clumsiness
  7. I prefer Cignal to G-sat mainly because it's ONESports channel shows the weekly PGA golf touraments. We use to have Fil Products were we lived before which is by far the best value and has all the channels under the sun for just P420 a month (but not PGA golf!) but where we are in Talay now we can't get it. So I use Cignal HD box prepaid P1,000 per month to get additional channels...incidentaly we found we could use the G-Sat dish for Cignal without problems. I agree with Peter prepaid is handy for those times you are away for a lengthy period as you can just buy a card when you return.
  8. Yes RBM have started exploring various walks up in Apolong and Casaroro Falls. Excellent work out! With great scenery.
  9. Hmmm...the human mind is a wondorous organ.... trying to get the connection between cross dressers and walking machines....lady boys in jogging gear demonstrating the tread mills perhaps?
  10. Thanks Paul.... think I will chill out and have a drink haha... but seriously I will try to do some weights work each day and go to bed earlier and get up an hour earlier and power walk. Appreciate your information Interestingly you didn't emphasis diet... do you follow any particular health diet? Cheers
  11. I think Jack needs to keep the other hand for another exercise
  12. Appreciate your detailed reply... a lot of good information and advice. I will look up that post from Aoril 2015 for more ideas. Many thanks
  13. Some good suggestions there Eddie.... that's what I will do. Good point about going to the driving range more often... with Dave particularily, as my flexibility will definitely improve climbing the club house roof to retieve his golf clubs from time to time....a well thought out suggestion mate.... thanks. ps to Dave W if your reading this please maintain that relaxed grip bud
  14. Good point Geoff... yes a gym would do the trick. I like walking as aged 72 now and prefer more gentlle and no cost exercise. But a gym would overcome many of the environmental problems. Will check local gym prices. Cheers
  15. One aspect of living in the Philippines I find a constant challenge is walking for excercise.. When I rented in Avida Towers in Cebu there was a excellent walking/jogging track through the garden beds around the towers. Plus a swimming pool. Moving to Dumaguete the first year I walked the boulevard before the sun got too hot. Have since moved to a small sub division further out of town in Talay and nearly every house has dogs straining on ropes tied to a tree or worse running loose in front of their owner's houses barking at you. It is not a nice walking environment! The main road outside is very busy traffic and diesel exhast wise (even face masks are challenged) with no pavements of course so not another good walking environment! Options..get up at sunrise and drive to the boulevard to walk.. not keen on the end of the day walking there as whilst cooler the buses and truck fumes are full bore. I try to walk around town whenever I can which helps. Anyone got a tread machine they want to sell? How do forum members manage exercising here in the Philippines? Particularily interested in members options living in Duma. Mike
  16. How does it work exactly?... do you jusr switch it on and leave it ...to send an ultra sonic wave... or is it activated only when they bark?
  17. I might have had my pink tinted specs on that day
  18. Great afternoon catch up with the guys....a good mob.. troop...of honary gents in Dumaguete
  19. Jim sound proofing your units might help keep your tentants.....sliding windows instead of jealosi type. Another option... Armstrong Accoustic Boards P320 each from City Hardware (no more stock just at present) and use these in the window frames if dog noise gets too much... works well we find.
  20. Yep that was yours truly. I normally take snaps like a tourist but it must have been the good conversation haha or the beer kept the phone camera quiet. Look forward to meeting the other guys next meet up cheers
