  1. So for with my 4 shipments with Shipping Cart, I have received my boxes in less than 10 days. That is from the time they pack and I get it here at the house. I do live about 2 hours from Manila in Malolos.
  2. No, but have used Shipping Cart from the United States, they also ship from Australia and England. I have shipped 4 times and service has been great.
  3. That's what I was told from the Angels BI office. I just set up to submit my NBI paper work on 17 September 2021. Once I get my clearance back, I will head over to the Angels BI and submit my package (probationary expires 14 Jan 2022).
  4. For United States Veterans, I use American Forces Network (AFN). I get 8 channels, two of them are sports channels, some of the other channels also some sports. Will show all NFL games, not all live, but some. Show other sports also, NHL, MLB, Boxing (pay per view, free), College Football and much more. You have to buy the AFN box and dish, after that it is free, just renew once a year, free.
  5. This is what I posted on 14 April 2021: but talking about the COVID19vaccine, and later on getting abooster, so maybebooster for COVID19 like the yearly flu shot. My question is, will this be the same vaccine you received 8 months ago or an updated vaccine like the flu shot does yearly? If it is the same as the one you had back 8 months ago, did the one you had 8 months ago expire and that the vaccine is only good for 8 months?
  6. Brought with me some Smile's PRID Drawing Salve (homeopathic relief of topical pain and irritation, 18 grams Temporary topical relief of pain and irritation associated with boils, minor skin eruptions and redness. Also aids in relieving the discomfort of minor skin irritations, superficial cuts and scratches.) Also some triple antibiotic cream.
  7. NBI, don't remember the cost, I think you can do it online. Unless the cost has gone up, it should cost the same for the 13A and ACR card. I will know in a couple of months, was told to submit 3 months prior to the expiration and my expiration is 14 January 2022.
  8. Wife and I got our J&J on 15 July 2021 at the United States VA, no side effects at all. I think at two weeks after the shot we are covered at about 66% and will be at 100% about 4 weeks after the shot.
  9. Also did my 13A probation and ACR in Angeles City. Submitted them together on 26 November 2020, cost was P11,025.5. They were approved on 14 January 2021, got them in March 2021. Will start the process over again in October 2021 to get my BI. Then in November 2021 the process for 13A and ACR. ACR was P2,405.5 13A was P6,120 Express was P2,500
  10. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html this web site is from John Hopkins With an estimated population in the Philippines, 1 July 2021, 111,046,913. COVID 19 positives in Philippines, 1,580,824. COVID 19 deaths in Philippines, 27,722. Positive cases in Philippines by % is .01423 (1.423%). Death cases in Philippines by % is .0002496 (.02496%). Death from positive cases in the Philippines is roughly .01753 (1.75%).
  11. What is the rate of catching covid? Fatality rate at near 10% is very high.
  12. Fencer and Filipina American Lee Keifer became the first American woman to win a gold medal in individual foil Sunday.
  13. Does your card have a place to add booster shots? I got the J&J shot so mine has room on the front and back. But you did give me the ideal to order CDC ID card protector record vaccine card cover holders with some lanyards. Thanks for that Mike, a great ideal.
  14. It took 97 years, but the Philippines has its first-ever Olympic gold medal. Hidilyn Diaz made history on Monday when she won the gold medal for women's 55-kilogram weightlifting, ending the Philippines' gold medal drought that started when it first began participating in the Summer Games in 1924. Diaz won with a total of 224 kilograms, an Olympic record and just one more than second-place finisher Liao Qiuyun of China. Liao also set the world record for 55 kilograms in 2019 with 227 kilograms. Diaz was tied with Liao going into the clean and jerk. She'd made two other attempts to lift her final weight of 127 kilograms, which would put her ahead of Liao. She had just one more attempt left, so it all came down to the dramatic final lift. Once she'd lifted the bar over her head and heard the buzzer, she dropped it and burst into tears as members of her team came over to embrace her.
  15. Found this on face book. Will there be more cities that follow or will this change before 25 August 2021.
  16. https://money.yahoo.com/social-security-benefits-could-get-biggest-increase-since-1983-211702221.html Senior citizens and disabled workers could be looking at the biggest boost to their Social Security benefits in decades next year — thanks to hot inflation now. Beneficiaries could see their benefits increase by 5.8% in January 2022, according to a Bank of America analyst note, which would be the biggest boost since 1983. That’s also quite a bit more than January 2021’s increase of 1.3% to the cost-of-living adjustment or COLA that hasn’t been enough to keep up with this year’s inflation. In June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index (CPI) — a key gauge of inflation — shot up to 5.4% from the previous year, marking the largest spike since August 2008. Some of the largest price increases were related to travel and cars, along with everyday items like laundry machines, bacon, fruit, and milk. This has important implications for both retirees and disabled workers getting Social Security and SSI benefits,” the note stated. “It means their budgets are being squeezed now, but improve a lot next year.” That hike would translate to more than an additional $80 per month in benefits — a fourfold increase than the extra $20 beneficiaries saw in the monthly benefits this year, per Bank of America. With more Social Security dollars to dole out next year — and inflation in 2022 expected to ease to 2.3% — there will be about a “$80 billion or so swing” in net tax benefits that will help sustain the recovery into next year, according to the Bank of America analysts.

The final say on the benefit increase rests with the Social Security Administration, which still has three additional months of data to collect before the official COLA percentage is determined. COLA is measured by data fluctuations in the CPI, specifically those categorized as urban wage earners and clerical workers. A comparison is made in October using the CPI snapshot of the previous year’s third quarter and the current year’s third-quarter data; the change in growth, if any, determines the adjustment.
  17. Got the Johnson & Johnson COVID 19 vaccine today, before going in the VA workers asked if my wife wanted to also get it. We both got it at the same time. If United States Veterans want to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (one shot) for there spouse or caregiver the below is how to contact VA Manila. The below is from an email sent out by the VA Manila Director. A dedicated phone line has been set up at the VA Manila Clinic to accommodate the high demand to schedule vaccine appointments. Veterans can contact the Manila Outpatient Clinic at +63-02-8550-3888, Press Option 2 for the Outpatient Clinic, then press 3 for COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling. Please understand that there may be extended hold times over the next several days as we try to schedule as many Veterans as possible. The Clinic’s phone lines are open Monday to Friday from 8AM to 3PM. Additionally, the Clinic’s phone lines will be open on Saturday, July 10 from 8AM to 3PM.
  18. I drink 2 16oz cups a day, less than 3 so I'm ok.
  19. You never screwed, just too many programs that should be rolled into one. Yes. Eligible adolescents ages 12 to 17 can now get a Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at VA facilities that provide this vaccine. Adolescents are eligible if they meet either of these requirements: They receive CHAMPVA benefits, or They help provide care or assistance to a Veteran Here’s what to know: The Pfizer-BioNTech is the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use in adolescents at this time. Not all VA health facilities offer this vaccine right now. Check with your VA facility before you go to get a vaccine. Find your nearest VA health facility that offers COVID-19 vaccines The adolescent’s parent or legal guardian must come with them to get the vaccine. Both the adolescent and their parent or guardian must give their consent for the vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines at VA | Veterans Affairs https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/#who-can-now-get-a-covid-19-vac Am I eligible for health care through CHAMPVA? You may only be eligible for health care through CHAMPVA if you don’t qualify for TRICARE and at least one of the descriptions listed below is true for you. At least one of these must be true. You’re: The spouse or child of a Veteran who’s been rated permanently and totally disabled for a service-connected disability by a VA regional office, or The surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who died from a VA-rated service-connected disability, or The surviving spouse or child of a Veteran who was at the time of death rated permanently and totally disabled from a service-connected disability, or The surviving spouse or child of a service member who died in the line of duty, not due to misconduct (in most of these cases, family members qualify for TRICARE, not CHAMPVA). A service-connected disability is a disability that we’ve concluded was caused—or made worse—by the Veteran’s active-duty service. A permanent disability is one that’s not expected to improve. Note: A Veteran who’s the qualifying CHAMPVA sponsor for their family may also qualify for the VA health care program based on their own Veteran status. If 2 spouses are both Veterans who qualify as CHAMPVA sponsors for their family, they both may now qualify for CHAMPVA benefits. Each time they need medical care, they may choose to get care through the VA health care program or using their CHAMPVA coverage.
  20. TRICARE and VA are different. VA will only give vaccines to Veterans and spouses/caregivers at this time. VA Manila are only giving vaccines to Veterans that get care with them, once that is done, if you are registered, COVID-19 vaccines at VA | Veterans Affairs, VA Manila will start calling IF vaccines are available for Veterans that do not get care at VA Manila and spouses/care givers of all Veterans.
  21. TRICARE and VA are different. Right now VA Manila will vaccinate all enrolled Veterans at VA Manila, slow process. After all Veterans enrolled at VA Manila have been vaccinated, they will vaccinate Veterans and spouses/caregivers that are not seen at VA Manila. Have to register to get the phone call for appointment to get vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines at VA | Veterans Affairs I'm 62 and get treatment at VA Manila and really don't expect to get my phone call until September or later, slow process.
