    1. Well Joyce I hope the pictures I took today were enough to get you through the day. I will see what I can do about getting you more pictures. That tricycle thing really does sound good, not sure when we’ll be able to afford another one though. I don’t know who named it ice candy. How’d you come up with a name like crushcicles? Well I’m going to keep writing what ever comes to my mind, so read away. Don’t want to make the posts super long, then people might get tired before they get to the end. Besides, usually not that much happens around here and I don’t want to make what does happen so long and drawn out. It’ll sound funny and like I’m an idiot or something. I’ll just stick to about the length I have been doing. I’m sure you’ll survive. Will it let you edit on this page today? I hope so, I don’t want something to be wrong.

  2. John, have you ever been to Bob Martins’s blog? It is
    He has been doing this for 3-4 years. He is also an American and lives in Davao. He might be able to give you some good ideas as to how to get advertising onto your blog. I like his blog although I have not been active there over the past few years.

    1. Bob Martin is my blog guru. He’s the one that does my host webbing. So yes I have been to his site and I have talked with him many times.
      I think he’s already basically told me how, I just have to figure it out. I’ve got some other ideas from him also, but he can (and does) write books on the subjects. I’m not savvy enough for book writing or even pamphlet writing.
      If you’ll notice, I even have a link to his site on my site. Under “Other Expat Sites”.

  3. lmao ur so funny johnny jr..nice big room counter you got there…lol i would of passed on the berries 2 make the banana pancakes.what is ice candy john is it like a popcicle or a snowcone?

    1. Wanted to make sure you could see the counter.
      Ice candy I’ve already explained and put a picture also. See the 14 Sep post.
      It’s like a popcicle in a little bag. Frozen flavored ice.

  4. Add to comment. We was waken up by cocks crowin at 3 Am. which someone was transporting in boxes. We looked at each other and seen carbon soot on each others faces and cloths. I said this would be a good National Geographic epposed on the life and travel in the Phillipine. We all broke out in laughter to cut the misery which we was in for lack of sleep.

    1. That just wants me to want to go even more…NOT. Oh well, it’s a life I’ve chosen, so I’ll have to take the bad with the good.
      But I hear those steaks calling my name. Just found a steakhouse in Legaspi, that’s closer, maybe we should go there.

  5. I have taken the Ro-Ro from Calbayog to Cebu. The cabins are not A/C like they say. Just sucking air from outside and blowing into cabins this is what they call A/C. They are bunk beds just as same on deck except you have room and maybe the door will lock. If wind shifts, blower will start blowing exhaust from engines into cabin and you will get sick like we did. Ended up taking mattress on deck and sleeping along deck, which pissed personnel off. Asked for refund but we got that foreign look. As for the restrooms or what they call CR. I do not think they have been cleaned since they bought the ship from the Japanese. No water.

    1. Sounds like the same one we were on, going the opposite direction. Oh boy, you just made me think of how wonderful the trip is going to be. 🙁 Maybe we should drive to Ormoc first.

  6. Howdy. What happened to my comment yesterday, JJ? Is it possible I could have deleted it after I posted it? Hmmm. Anyway, I guessed that the commercial possibilities was the biggest factor in your decision to choose Calbayog since SL is basically a place to kick back and chill. Population count alone for potential customers would make Calbayog a hands-down pick.

    How long does it take to drive from there to Tacloban? Between TAC and my little town, staying on the Pacific side, it’s only 2 to 2.1/2 hrs drive if you don’t fly. Mind you when you hit the mountains some of those elevations are strictly first or second gear depending on what’s in the vehicle. Last year I was in Tac almost every second day at CitiHardware or UltraSteel. You’ll love the instore service at the former, almost like NorthAm’s.

    When you get going on building your house I have oodles of info you may be able to use. 🙂

    1. No clue what happen to your comment. It wasn’t here and I didn’t receive it in my e-mail, so I guess you did delete it.
      From here to Tacloban is a 5-6 hour drive. I don’t like going the mountain way, but we have done it. I’ll be glad when I can use that oodles of information. It’s so loud downstairs sometimes, especially since the batas don’t have anywhere else to play.

  7. I have seen blueberries in the market in Angeles City but they were about $1 per berry. Needless to say, I did not buy them.
