    Well apparently, it's not only cash that they will accept. Back in the mid 1990's, I was illegally parked while patiently waiting for Judy to complete her shopping at Divisoria (Manila). About 4 hours driving around, looking for a parking spot. I just pulled into a nice shady spot and a few minutes later, I get a tap to roll down my window. The PNP was writing something down and mentioned that my rear plate was already being removed by a his young partner, a 12 year kid. I only had a few pesos with me, so I presented him with a gift that he apparently appreciated more. An old issue of one of my Playboy magazine was discreetly handed to him, to be followed by barking orders to reinstall my rear plate immediately. Yeah, it's mo pun in da Philippines.
  2. When in Rome.......do as the Filipinos do:
  3. What happened to his bail of 120K pesos? Will it be returned to him? Or was it already spent by the judge and the police chief? He may have some desire to return to PI but he should make certain that he's not on the "blacklist". This is pure speculation but it's common among common folks. It's called crab mentality. Others may see this young family being openly supported by a foreigner and they're not getting a piece of the action. All it takes is one phone call to PNP with exaggerated tsimis (gossip). And another opportunity for the PNP to make some extra cash........
  4. Hey Officer Danny (Intrepid), What was your favorite police cruiser or fast boat, since you are a "harbormaster", coaster patrol, rescue and salvage?
  5. Very nice rig Tommy T!
  6. Triple LIKE Officer Danny!
  7. Need to venture out? From a fellow veteran, may I suggest meeting these veterans of WalMart, while making your final plans to visit PI: Respectfully Jake, USN RET(arded)
  8. Good morning guys, I have similar requirements Tommy T. And as Howard suggested, perhaps I should research more about bluetooth sound systems. It practically eliminates the speaker wires running all over the place but of course, you need to plug in each BT speaker to a wall socket for power. I hope the latest BT technology has improved regarding compatibility issues with various devices, like BT headphones, speakers and the sound quality beyond the living room. Logitech has served me well over the years for 2.1 (left/right and bass) sound system for computers. For TV, I think I may go with a sound bar sitting below the TV or actually attached to it. For private listening, I hope my existing BT headphones (used with my MP3 and laptop) can be mated to that particular sound bar. A separate home theater or surround system with front, center, woofer and rear speakers requires more thought in their final placement. That's why, I rather go with bluetooth to give me more flexibility and hopefully, less headaches.
  9. Yep, I need to update my bug out bag with more beer.....he, he.
  10. Looks like this road trip to Clark, validates your reasoning about possibly moving there from Subic. Anyway Don, we appreciate your hard lessons learned -- that ignoring warning signs from your doctor or especially from your own body, can lead to more complications. My warm regards to you and your family. Respectfully Jake
  11. Well Baston, you could always go back to the old school way. You can walk around with a cup of coffee, barking orders from a clipboard? Or just go an extended vacation in PI, barking at the moon in ecstasy.....he, he.
  12. When my wife Judy first came over on a fiance visa, I took her up to Mt Palomar (north of San Diego, CA). I made a fatal mistake of showing her some "yellow" snow. And that was my first time in the doghouse......and we were not even married at the time. By the way Mark, nice photos!
  13. Yours and mine can go out for dinner. WE however, can go to the local strip joints.....he, he.
  14. Too bad Mark......I live in Las Vegas, about 4-5 hrs drive from LAX (without traffic).
