  1. I read somewhere that they are trying to pay off creditors with unfinished properties.
  2. A lot of teachers are probably mid level leaders in the various pyramid schemes/"wealth" opportunities that plague the Philippines. It is a national scourge.
  3. That's why when we are out and about in the Philippines my wife is the "Queen of the Little Peso." That is all she carries in her purse--small bills. I am the one to carry carry any sizable peso bills zipped in my front cargo short pockets. If there is any sale shopping to be done she goes it alone will I sit in the courtyard or food court sipping coffee or San Miguel)))
  4. No one is going to have their mind changed as a result of this thread.
  5. I tried to type it and it kept changing to President President. Thought I was losing my mind for a second)))
  6. My best man at my first wedding and high school best friend is an assistant vice president for actuarial services at one of the world's largest financial firms. He fell in with a group that believes that the election was fake and the real President (he who shall not be mentioned) was actually still running the country from a secret military base. This was right after the election. Some of his school mates were pleading with him to come back to reality. When I mentioned I was getting the vaccine in March he pleaded with me not to get the vaccine as it was destroying women's menstrual cycles. Even if true I really don't know what that had to do with me))) All this was coming from one of the most rational people I have ever known. Sad and a little bit scary.
  7. It is a catchy acronym))) Mutual self help can be a positive thing. I would probably check it out if there was a group close to where we'll be living.
  8. My wife is playing the long con))))
  9. We gave him some good advice STT. Now if he listens is another thing)) I told him to expect a dying caribou any day...
  10. It seems I get the final say in just about everything but this. The boss is steadfastly against cremation. I really don't care one way or the other. If I die in the US I will be buried in a Vet Cemetery. If in the Philippines I'm sure we will have private plots. Do they make coffins for 6'3" Kanos?))
  11. Yep. I think the money lost is relative as it sound like he absorbed the loss with little difficulty. Some guys get duped out of their entire retirement stash and get kicked to the curb. I personally would have had to let her go after I found out but her having a child changes everything. She has the hooks in good. Her family coached her well.
  12. Yep, for 250,000 +/- you can get a multicab. Which for me is much more preferable.
