  1. And for the high tech solution
  2. Thanks. Not brave, I had my GF and at times her family to help keep me out of trouble. Never considered camping or sleeping in the car. Much better to have a nice room and bed for my GF and I to stay in. Of course we stayed with her family for 3 nights and only 4 nights were in hotels. Just checked and I still have the pictures and could upload some of the pictures from that trip again. Once when travelling on the remote mountain rode to my wifes family we saw a lone foreign hiker with full backpack. Didn't stop and chat with him, I am sure he would have had many interesting stories.
  3. Yes, they were in my gallery. Shame they got lost, the pictures really added to the story.
  4. I just went to review that thread from almost 7 years ago and noticed that all the pictures I had posted in that thread are gone.
  5. If we are talking about travelling around to cool places that is doable. I did a write up years ago about one of my trips around the northern Luzon mountain area. Had a great time, much to see, drove a rental car with my GF. Here is a link to that thread:
  6. Ass, Gas or Grass; nobody advertises for free.
  7. The medium sized midwest city I live in is going to require that all children and staff wear masks at public schools this fall. Like that is going to work. But they also will allow families to keep their children home and "attend" the school over the internet. The greatest concern the schools have is to keep their enrolment and attendance up so they can keep the cash coming in.
  8. That is why it is called the silent service. Because very little is said about submarine operations.
  9. I can confirm that policy as a former submariner. I was out at sea when the US hostages were taken from the US Embassy in Iran. We knew very little about what was going on. After I returned I found out from a taxi driver that every submarine that could get out to sea was gone. The US submarine fleet was on a war footing. Later I learned a friend of mine on a fast attack boat had their 6 month north atlantic run extended for another 6 months in the med while only pulling in to port long enough to load stores. I can also confirm that on my boat there were some who were very concerned about their breath in such close quarters. They would bring along several bottles of that light brown colored "listerene" mouth wash. They must have been concerned about my breath because a few times they sweetened my coffee.
  10. For me the numbers I follow are the number currently hospitalized and the number of deaths recently in my local community and state. It doesn't matter to me, except for considerations of herd immunity, how many people have tested positive for the virus since the beginning. Locally the number of people testing positive and the number of active cases are at all time highs yet the number of people currently hospitalized or rate of death hasn't really increased.
  11. I recall a comment about statistics when First Lady Barbara Bush was asked about some elections polls, she said that the only statistic she had faith in was that if you took all the people who fell asleep during church and laid them end to end they would be a great deal more comfortable.
  12. For travel in the US you must carry your medication in the original bottle with all the prescription information. If law enforcement see unidentifiable pills they assume they are contraband prescription drugs or some sort of illegal drug.
  13. I get several medications from a Canadian Pharmacy online. One of them gets mailed from Canada, the other will come from either Canada or India. Saves me money especially since I have a high deductible health insurance with an HSA.
  14. I am not in the Philippines but when we closed on our sale in the US a few days before the lockdown started we had to go to the title company to sign the documents for the closing which had to be notarized. All other realtor related documents were signed electronically. Sounds like a question for the title company. There likely are a number of title companies to choose from so you may be able to find one that can handle remote document signing. I think some states allowed for a process in which notarization could be done via zoom calls.
  15. For my inlaws I recall my wife mentioning how much she hated planting the rice, I expect these were seedlings being planted. My inlaws small rice fields are up in the mountains so I expect that they do more work by hand because of the poor logistics to move equipment in the mountains.
