Laoag City is a 1st class city in the province of Ilocos Norte, Philippines. It is the capital city of Ilocos Norte, and the province’s political, commercial, and industrial hub. The municipalities of San Nicolas, Paoay, Sarrat, Vintar, and Bacarra form its boundaries. The foothills of the Cordillera Central mountain range to the east, and the South China Sea to the west are its physical boundaries.
Be sure to click on the pictures to see a larger picture and/or more information on the picture. I was in a mood to do it today. Normally I don’t for pictures I didn’t take myself. I didn’t put information on all of them, but at least 80% of them I did.
Useless Knowledge: A nullipara is a woman who has never borne a child. (I never knew there was a word for it, but I guess there is a word for just about everything)
17 Jun – Hits @ 0200 = 534631. I didn’t bother getting up until 0950 this morning. Why? Because I can. I have that option. Don’t be jealous. I think I’ll stay in bed a little bit longer tomorrow.
I’m trying to decide what my first meal of the day will be. It’s almost noon so I guess I’ll go with the bacon again. Yes, I will have some more of those delicious bacon and tomato sandwiches. I’ll have to wait for the bacon to thaw out first though. While I’m waiting I guess I’ll kill some zombies with my plants.
Well I tried, but those zombies were extra hungry today. I tried to beat my record of 26 straight survival attacks, but by the time I got to attack #17, I knew it was over, so I just gave up. It’s time to cook the bacon anyway.
After I cooked the bacon and made the sandwiches I ate them in LolyKat. The only fan we have left is out there for Lita and I didn’t feel like carrying it into the kitchen to eat and then back out to the store in such a short time frame.
Useless Knowledge: Mickey Rooney turned down the role of Archie Bunker in the 1970s sitsom All in the Family. The former child star was convinced that the show would bomb, and he wasn’t willing to jeopardize his professional reputation, although his film career had been on the skids for years. Little-known character actor Carroll O’Connor won the role as a result. (I can’t imagine this show without Carroll O’Connor, it just wouldn’t be right)

John, you haven’t mentioned weigh-ins lately. How’s that going?
I haven’t really been doing an “official” weigh in, but I have been checking. The weight just hangs around the 120 kilo area. About 2 kilos in each direction. I think I’m at a stagnate point. The exercise would help, but I never seem to get over that way.
Good post as I plan on riding up to Laog (N Luzon) when the rains stop. In August, am riding south to Legazpi City (South has less rain). Maybe you can include that city in your blog.
Legazpi in a post? You got it. How about later today. I’ll have that post done. I’ll start working on that now.
