  1. I am very intuitive. I immediately felt there was no real and substantial connection. I had a picture in my head of who this person was which was not based in reality. When we spent a couple of days together I knew she was not for me. She did nothing wrong. It was my mistake. I can't describe how I knew.
  2. Good luck with your girl. Having said that be open to change. I like you was talking to a girl before going there for 3 months. When I got there I quickly realised it was not going to work out. I decided I may as well just enjoy my time there and having met a few girls within 3 weeks I met my wife to be.
  3. I met that guy in TGIF Ayala last time I was there. Seemed a nice enough guy but only met him the once.
  4. I saw this posted on Facebook (Credit to Reekay Valez). I spent many a day talking with Larry and found him to be a gent. I also saw him take care of a Swede who got into some difficulty being robbed of his passport and all his money. Larry gave him money to get to Manila to get help from embassy. I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

  6. Maybe substandard 12mm or 1/2" was the answer. A bit late now but the engineer could have redone the calc for 8mm and increased the amount of bars accordingly.
  7. Assuming you can get either. A SRRV or Quota. Which one is best and why.
  8. I'm a bit confused. Can someone explain the benifit of the "Quota visa" over the "SRRV classic" I' planning my retirement for 3 years. I'll be in and out of the country up to that point. I want the best option available to me and as I am from Ireland I doubt that there is much demand on the quota 50 per year from Ireland. I imagine I'll qualify for it if it' better than the SRRV
  9. You and I don't know much about any success or otherwise because it' not done through the media. That the whole purpose of them.
  10. I don' think it' the fact that social media is being used that's an issue. But the way it's being used is what's being discussed. I am not from US so I have no vested interests. I have to say there is allot I like about Trumps method of leadership. He often wears his colours on his sleeves. He is not afraid to tackle controversy. The world needs more of this straight talking and less PC crap. However most will agree that diplomatic relations are best not performed on social media. A leader of a powerful nation generally shouldn't pick fights with other nations (North Korea/ Russia) over the internet. There are ambassadors and diplomats for that.
  11. We don't hear about them because they are not the president of the most powerful nation in the world. What left or right wing politicians do is insignificant when compared to what the leaders of nations do. You don' read about the tweets of other world leaders because they are measured in all their media encounters. They are aware of the impact of their words.
  12. My point is. He is using social media like a kid shouting across a school yard. Putin has not and will not respond in kind because it's totally inappropriate and foolish to do so. Putin is no fool.
  13. I don't understand Trump and his legions of deciples. It appears to me he is a school yard bully shouting across the yard at the big guy hoping to impress his minions. Not realising that the guy he is shouting at is merely resting and should be left alone.
