  1. Interesting one today john,Guimaras looks like a great place to checkout,will be one we will have to see.I have to agree with you i read daves site to and really enjoy it,he has some good stories there.

    1. Yeah I think I’ve just about gotten Lita talked into visiting there, but it may be next year. She didn’t want to at all for some reason, but a little persuading has her thinking more positive about it.
      I don’t even like mangoes (but I like mango juice … I know, weird), but I will at least give the “Sweetest Mangoes in the World” a try when we get there. Of course have a couple of brews with Dave too.

  2. Thanks for the plug, John. Expect for my picture you have posted some great pictures of Guimaras, my home for almost the past two years. I can honestly say that I’ve never tasted any mangoes as sweet as those that are grown in our province. A great place to visit with lots of friendly people.

    1. Unfortunately that was the best picture of you. It could be worse. You could look like me. You’re wife’s picture was good though.
      I think that the people that will be coming there probably will to find out what a 77 pound lizard killer looks like, that’s why I wrote it the way I did. I don’t remember seeing any pictures there on your site though. I don’t want to say anything about it here, someone may be reading and then they won’t have the curiosity to go to your site to see.

  3. “cheese whiz” besides being the cracker spread, is what my wifes circle jokingly uses instead of “chezmez” (spelling is wrong i am sure” i guess it means being nosey or the latest gossip.

    1. That’s good. It’s something that lightens up the conversation. Maybe I can get that started here too.

    2. Okay, back up. I just talked to Lita and she said that in the US she did use that phrase, Cheese Whiz. She said she used it so others wouldn’t figure out that they had some gossip to to talk about. I’ve been married to her for over 31 years and I don’t remember ever hearing that. Maybe I was on the computer or watching TV or eating or sleeping. I don’t know, but I do know now.

  4. J. You often make reference to the “store” I browsed through some of the old posts but didnt really see what it was about. Do you and your family run a Sari Sari store? What is that like? I imagine in a small area that is like the ole barber shop where people hang out and gossip. I bet you have a lot of stories revolving around the store. Especially if your area is like my philipino relatives in regards to “cheeze whiz” lol

    1. Yes it is a sari-sari store and a BBQ. The name of the store is LolyKat. It is a small area and they do gossip up there, but it’s usually in Tagalog and I don’t get half of the stuff. It’s okay, I don’t really care. As long as everyone else is happy, I’m happy. I do have several pictures on the website. Search for LolyKat. the store and BBQ area, you should get some hits on those.
      On a quick look, I saw some pictures on the 15 Jan, 19 Jan, 20 Mar and 27 Mar posts.
      Cheese Whiz?? I know what it is, but haven’t heard any Filipino relatives mention it. That’s a strange one.
