  1. come work for me underground in the dark and I will give you a hurt feelings report lol. there is a old saying two men went into the stope and one came out. That being said the younger generation of underground miners do not have the same outlook. Us old guys have a lot more fun at work, the young guys are too busy listening to music on there phones, or playing games. while us old guys sit around (when we can find down time) talking about women and what we will do when we finally call it quits. The comradery is disappearing from the job, it started with all the safety procedures being put in place, taking the responsibility from looking after your fellow worker from you and putting it into a procedure/sop. where I work it is standard operating procedure to be tied off with a 5 point harness when up off the ground more than 4 feet. aaaaaaaarg drives me crazy, what ever happened to survival of the fittest and thinning the herd? Just let me do my job and stay out of my way. Ok rant over, if the safety officer reads this I will probably need a hurt feelings report.
  2. Urinating, defecating, spitting in a public …www.mmda.gov.ph/index.php/20-faq/287-anti-littering-law-10-things-you-should-know, seems there is a law P500.00 8 hours (1 day)
  3. so true, I went for my morning walk and the guard at the condo entrance took my temp. before allowing me into the building. Very scary here in the PH. Hard to believe no confirmed cases with the amount of Chinese here. A few days ago it was in the hundreds now it is in the thousands of infected. Every time I turn on the computer the numbers are up.
  4. Great advise, I only hope no one from the forum is sitting beside me on my flight to Vancouver this afternoon. Well maybe Tommy T since it was his suggestion.
  5. my advise to the original poster is (for what it is worth) is forget the internet, enjoy the Philippines, for what it is and when your tired of it go back to the penthouse over looking the golf course till you get the urge to explore again.
  6. Maybe an employer who wants to reward his employee for years of loyal service and hard work. An employer who feels the profit his employees are making for him allows him to be more generous with his compensation.
  7. I had one of them secrete stashed, then the gf was putting socks in my socks drawer and says " babe I found five blue can we go MOA" no more secrete stash!!!!
  8. pray to whom, who, what?
  9. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/china-building-a-hospital-to-treat-virus-expands-lockdowns/ar-BBZhbZW?ocid=spartandhp, I would say they plan on seeing more cases.
  10. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/coronavirus-panic-spreads-in-china-with-three-cities-in-lockdown/ar-BBZfHo1?ocid=spartandhp , up to three cities and 20 million peoples.
  11. Hey now I resemble that remark
  12. in my humble opinion is climate change happening, yes, has the climate always been changing, yes. In the 1970's I was told we were running out of oil and we were entering a minor ice age. In the 2000's I am told we have oil enough for another 100 yrs. and have global warming. The government is having me pay a tax on carbon. How they price the carbon and how they decide how much to tax me I do bot know. How the carbon tax will have me use less carbon I also do not know. I suppose the government thinks if they take more of my money I will have less to spend on Carbon producing products. I use natural gas to heat my home, I use coal powered electicity to power my home. I use gasoline in my truck. Everything I buy is somehow delivered or produced using fossil fuels. Is it the oil, gas, coal industry in Canada causing the problem? Recently we had a young girl come over from Europe and tell us how bad we are. Yet Germany and Russia just doubled there natural gas pipeline capability. The oil and gas industry I the US is booming, companies from Canada are leaving for the US in droves. India and China are building coal powered power plants. The climate will change, the weather will change, it is what it is. Until the major powers, US, Russia, China, India, Europe decide to come together to change nothing will change. I do not see it happening in my lifetime. Only more climate fearmongering and more taxes for me. [ I may be doomed for this but I for one enjoy the warmer winters here. Less -40 weather is a plus for me.]
  13. At work, in the kitchen eggs come in a 20 liter pail. Shelled and cooked, they are dished out in the salad bar to help yourself too. Not fresh and not very tasty but you can have as many as you want.
  14. Nope airport to my condo in Makati yellow flat rate usually 400 or 500 piso, white taxi meter 160 to 190 piso and then add 45 piso Skyway fare to both
  15. My brother inlaw (no i am not married I still call the so's brother my brother inlaw) always uses Grab. Seems to me be a very good system. I always tell myself I will get the app Have not yet, i do enjoy the white taxi tho, although I must admit I have gotten frustrated at times with certain drivers, more good experiences then bad tho. Like another poster said waiting in the taxi line at the mall can be very frustrating, try megamall Quezon City at 8pm aaaaarg. For 20 peso I can take the MRT to Quadelupe station and the one jeepney ride to the condo yet the so will insist standing inline for upto a hour for a taxi. Sometimes if you want to pay extra there will be guys,I have used them a time or two, when tired of waiting in line. Usaually twice the regular taxi offering rides for a flat rate.
