  1. Was explaining to my wife, I thought it would be selfish of me, knowing I had a terminal illness and kept trying to get treated. I also do not want to extend the misery and drain resources for my wife. One of my wife's cousin died of cancer 20 years ago here in the PI, still paying. One fact for sure, we will all die.
  2. Love our slow cooker. Shipped one and trying to teach Olivia how to use it. We have a slow cooker recipe cook book. Still looking for Lawry's seasoned salt, love that stuff.
  3. Lost electric at around 0300 (3 am), 12 November and got it back at around 1830 (6:30 pm), 16 November. Sustained winds of around 65 kph, flooding in the village here, water got up to the gate here, but nothing to worry about here at the house. Glad I had balcony furniture, spent just about all day there. Glad to have gas (keep two bottles of gas on hand) on the stove, was able to cut up the food in the freezer. Had plenty of food and water (keep 4 blue jugs of water on hand). Could had electric back on 14 November, but the flooding in the village, they were afraid to turn it back on bec
  4. Master Chief we are praying for you and your family. Surprised that this virus would want to attack an old Master Chief like you after all that you have been exposed to, not a smart virus.
  5. Showing only one track, still to far out to know where it will go. I do know I can't run and hide, so I need to make sure I have enough food and water to last for about a month. I do have gas to cook with if elect does out. Been through one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the United States, Hugo, September 1989, had to stay in Charleston due to being in the Navy.
  6. With over 250,000 populations, I don't think these number are bad. So I'm not in a rush. I'm sure that the United States Veterans Affairs will be giving them when approved and I have an appointment in March 2021.
  7. I guess I would have to stop drinking beer, only drink 3 or 4 a week. Lucky my retirements generally increase about 1% each year, that can also change to no increase.
  8. I haven't been here long enough to notice the price changes. I just know my San Miguel Pale Pilsen is 39P, hair cuts are 100P (shop just opened up the first of October so I expect it to go up), I get my hair cut once a month, paid $10 at the Navy Exchange back in the States. Fresh shrimp large 450P per kg, extra large 550P per kg at local stand. Wife does most shopping, she just gets what she needs from my wallet. A lot of folks selling door to door here in McArthur Village and on face book. All sorts of folks selling food at dinner time on the streets here.

  10. That is normal for a hurricane track in the Gulf of Mexico back in the States. When they show it on the weather channel it seems like there is a bunch of tracks that are shown. It is hard to tell with the ocean temperature and it is also so easy to bump it off course once it hits land.
  11. They have some new copper joints, all you have to do cut two sides of a leak and slip them into the sleeve. I was not sure about them, tried them and worked on a few pipes that leaked. Also used them when I installed a new hot water heater at the house, worked like a charm. No need to solder joints anymore.
  12. Had the same problem. Back in the States, we put a glue on all water joints to keep them from separating when water pressure is applied. Don't think that is done here in the PI. I ended up running water though all pipes with full pressure to make sure no other leaks.
  13. We are very blessed that it missed us. I know how long it takes for recovery in the States, has to be longer here. Stay safe.
  14. Different possible tracks of Typhoon Goni. Possible track of Typhoon Atsani.
