    Electric Fan Rant

    The stand fan on the patio is a Camel "Stand Fan 'T'" Model CSF 1609C. We have a desk fan in the bedroom that's a Camel "Desk Fan 'T'" Model CDF412.

    Electric Fan Rant

    I don't know about prices but I will never buy anything other than Camel brand. To me, they are the strongest fans available. We had an anemic Asahi wall mount out on the patio. Not a remote version but a pull chain version. I could not feel the breeze from it from four feet away. My wife took it to her store and we replaced it with a Camel stand fan. That one is almost too strong. I imagine they use more electricity for being strong air movers but I don't mind. It's less than what the AC costs.

    Dog swallows manhood whole

    Someone should tell the authorities to be on the lookout for a gorilla. ============= A fellow wakes up one morning to a terrible noise on his roof. He goes outside to find it's a gorilla! So he Googles and sure enough, there's an ad for "Gorilla Removers". He calls the number, and the gorilla remover says he"ll be there in 30 minutes. The gorilla remover arrives and gets out of his van. He's got a ladder, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a huge, ferocious-looking dog. "What are you going to do?", the homeowner asks. "I'm going to put up this ladder against the roof, then I'm going to go up there and knock the gorilla off the roof with the bat. When the gorilla falls off, the dog is trained to grab the gorilla's testicles and squeeze. The gorilla will be subdued enough for me to lock him in the cage in the back of the van.", says the gorilla remover and hands him the shotgun. "What's the shotgun for?", asks the homeowner. "If the gorilla knocks ME off the roof, shoot the dog."
  4. I keep looking and looking at that photo of Willy's and can't seem to find a thing wrong...

    Yamashitas treasure

    Being from Davao where the Japanese tunnels are, I have a friend who sold me a map very cheaply as he needed to pay for the care of his sick child. If you are willing to fund the dig, I will split the proceeds with you 60/40. By the way, my real name is Masinga Mbeki and I am a Prince of the First Cast of Nigeria.

    Playing with fire.

    I couldn't watch more than two minutes, seeing that Short Attention Span Girl (wife?) hanging on him, squirming about and combing her hair, even with the automatic captions on. *shrugs*

    12 light items (rash guards, women's swim skirts, etc.) transacted for air cargo on Sept. 29 from California, arrived today just one day late for $57.88. I needed some of the things for home brewing and my wife wanted the family swim stuff early to try on. Packed very nicely and neatly in their "Small" BB box (about 1/3 of a regular Atlas or LBC BB box). I like that each item was returned to its shipping packaging after measuring where practical and RESEALED. Some of the lighter stuff like the rashguards and swim skirts were not repackaged at all but left in their manufacturer's packaging which is fine as they won't be damaged from bouncing around. It saves a few pennies in weight when shipping by air, also. Altogether happy with this shipment. We have one more with heavier items coming by sea and due Nov. 19.

    Monkey see monkey do

    I'm glad you got what you came for, then.

    Monkey see monkey do

    Not sure I would want to live in a society that doesn't "socialize" scraping the bodies off of the road or that refuses to care for those with Traumatic Brain Injuries but to each his own.

    Are Filipinos Racists?

    I know.

    Tea then? It's weird. I'm both really nervous about using ShippingCart and really encouraged by their comprehensive reply to my dilemma. But, hey, we all need that friend when we have to "Phone a Friend", yeah?

    Is Tipping 20% Too Much in the Philippines?

    You should see how we dogs classify you all. Oops! I've run out of room!
