  1. I worked for a trucking company for 30+ years. We used to say "if you bought it, a truck brought it". Approximately 20 years ago carriers had to start adding a fuel surcharge to their invoices to cover the rapidly rising cost of fuel. Every week we would get the "West Coast Average" and use it to calculate what percentage would be added to the invoice. The surcharge was expected by both carriers and customers to be a "temporary" line item until fuel prices became stable and new rates could be established. That never happened and the fuel surcharge is now standard. The fuel surcharge on
  2. Thanks for setting me straight Dave. For some reason I assumed they were bringing 110 appliances.
  3. What channel(s), if any, are the Olympics being shown on? I have Cignal satelite.
  4. If you have yet to build, consider wiring the house with both 240 and 110 outlets. Will probably make your life easier in the long run and maybe cost less to boot. That assumes of course that 110 appliances do not get plugged into a 240 outlet.

  8. The health authorities all seem to agree the Delta strain is more transmissible than the original strain. There seems to be some uncertainty about the lethality of the virus compared to the original. Initial studies from England show it is less lethal. The following article seemed to do the best job of explaining the differences. https://www.dw.com/en/fact-check-what-do-we-know-about-the-coronavirus-delta-variant/a-57949754
  9. Or set up one of these for the seven day wake. Drives me crazy to see one these blocking one lane of the road.
  10. Good new for those who like to ride bikes and don't feel safe on the streets. The lanes total 129 kilometers. The article has some nice pictures. https://cebudailynews.inquirer.net/388607/in-photos-metro-cebu-bike-lane-network-inaugurated Cebu City, Philippines–The Department of Transportation in partnership with the Department of Public Works and Highway in Central Visayas, and local government units inaugurated a 129-kilometer bike lane network covering at least four localities in Metro Cebu on Friday, July 16, 2021.

  11. A blistering editorial piece that is well written and speaks to the rapid decline in Philippine education. The author pulls no punches and concludes that the education system "has been brought to its knees". https://www.manilatimes.net/2021/07/19/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/arroyo-aquino-and-duterte-regimes-share-blame-for-education-mess/1807515 IN her press statement demanding an apology from the World Bank (WB) for its report on the Philippines' poor student achievement, which she claimed to have shamed and insulted the country, Education Secretary Leonor Briones alleged the rep
