  1. Pure Foods is about as close as I have found to an American tasting hot dog. Some of the other brands I have tried in the past made me gag. Believe me, if I could manage to bring some American hot dogs and sausages with me, I would have a suitcase filled with them. At least in Angeles, there are two delis that make their own sausages. One of them is owned by a Czech, who has become a good friend, and the other is owned by an American and both are very good. They import the meat and spices so they are as close to what I can get in the States as you can hope for.

    I know what HRM stands for by the way but I won’t share it here. Jen has a cousin studying that in Calbayog and her brother was going to study that but switched to IT. He is going to College in Angeles and lives with us there. He is in his second year and her cousin is in her third year.

    1. I understand the gagging part. It makes Lita mad sometimes that I do it, but I can’t help it, to me, it’s nasty. I’m hoping that someday you will show me these sausage places in Angeles, I’d like to give them a try. Yes, thank you for not sharing the HRM here.

  2. Remember it’s the rambling that’s interesting, JJ. 🙂 Re the tour business, glad you’re taking your time to review and make sure everything jibes. I forgot your tourists can arrive at the Tacloban (Palo, really) airport, too. And I think this is the right time to start because the government’s push is the development of tourism in the area.

    How far is Titing’s house from yours. The question mark key has migrated somewhere. I’ve got to fix that. And soon. It’s making me nuts. IER.

    The photos definitely add much flavor to your daily blog.

    Keep typing!

    1. Like Winda said I to enjoy the ramblings keep it up.I also enjoy your pics as
      i have been in the area relate to soom of them.On your post yesterday about the kids stoping by for ice candy,the are so cute and polite i get a real
      joy when they come by and i try to get them to talk,they rae so shy.
      John on a different topic if i may ask,how often are the brownouts happening.Who do you have your internet threw is pretty fast?Have you ever thought of cars service out of the airport there farther away places than a trike can take a few passengers.hope all is well in samar

      1. That’s at least 3 of y’all that like the rambling, probably more do too. I’ve got a ton of old pictures, so I guess, since no one seems to mind, I’ll start adding those in each post. There are so many of them, and some of them are copies of other ones, so I can’t promise I won’t repeat some after awhile, but I’ll try not to.
        My goal with the batas is to just get them to smile, or giggle is better.
        The brownouts, disregarding the 4 brownout day, are not really so bad. Normally we have a couple per week, in additional to 2 more per month that are scheduled. Some weeks, there are none whatsoever. It’s the uncertainty of when/if there will be one that bothers me. Hopefully when/if that power plant down the road gets built, all this crap will stop or at least significantly slow down.
        My internet service is with Globe (Broadband) and it is pretty fast. At times it is almost as slow as dial up though. Mostly it is fast. Sometimes it is so fast, I don’t see the screen change, and I keep waiting. I keep double checking now.
        Are you talking about a business of cars from the airport? The airport is not really that far from downtown Calbayog, and there are so many different types of transportation now, tricycles (non-motor and motor), transportation vans and buses, I’m not sure it’d be feasible. If they really decide to build up this area, and it looks like they are, I’ll bet someone with a lot more money than me is already considering that, shuttle buses. Maybe even the guy that owns that big hotel across the street. He has invested a lot of money, and I’m sure he’ll do what he needs to, to make it work. It’s something to consider, but I’d have to find a way to come up with the money first. Heck, I can’t even get enough money to finish my house yet. Unless I wanted to use my own truck. It’s big…ummmm! We’ll see.

    2. Okay then, I’ll ramble. Of course I’m being sure it all ‘jibes’, because if the people aren’t happy, then I’m just wasting my time. Sure I’ve got time to waste if I want to, but if I’m going to waste time, I’m going to do it doing nothing. Not sure we’d want tourists showing up at Tacloban at this time. Mainly because all we have is 1 package set up and it’s all in the Cebu area. In fact, all 3 packages we plan are all down that way. Do you think tourists would be interested in Tacloban, besides MacArthur Park? From the back of my house to the front of the porch of Titing’s is about 6 feet. Even with the older pictures in there? It doesn’t matter, just pictures? Keep reading!
