  1. Hey John,

    I commented on your new story but it didn’t stick. maybe their is a problem in your comment section on that site.

    1. Thanks Tom. It was set for Registered Users only. I have since changed it to “Anyone” although that will probably bring out the Spammers.
      However, could you please try it again to see if it works now?
      I wonder if others have tried to do it also?
      This is why we should have Feedback on things.

      1. Hi John,

        I left you a comment on your other site regarding you story but it kept disappearing when I would post it.

        1. Tom I don’t know what the heck is wrong with it. I’ve double checked everything I know and it just doesn’t work.
          I was hoping to get feedback so I could see if I should continue with the site or junk it. Would you just send whatever comment you had to my e-mail?
          Just send it to [email protected]
          Thanks. I value your input on this, since I think you are a wonderful writer.

        2. Or you could try again. I looked up the known errors for Blogger and that comment thing was one of them.
          They gave a possible temporary solution and I’ve tried it. So maybe it will work now.

  2. How to contact your guy Mar? i got a kano friend from Texas arriving Feb 7th with his soon to be wife for a visit and i need transport service to take us, Flor and me, out to airport, then return the 4 of us with their luggage to our house. I would like to work out a deal and reserve him for this transport.

    1. Ado and his multi-cab would probably be a better choice if luggage is involved. Mar’s cars are small. A multi-cab could hold all of y’all easy.
      Get me a time and I’ll ask Ado about that. He’s easy to get along with. I’ll even come along with him if you like, since your friend is from the Great State of Texas.

      1. Sure you are welcome to come along, Cliff is about our size his gf grace about the size of my wife if you remember Flor. Plus they get in about 11 am i was thinking stopping at Marcial’s grill fr Lunch on way back into town my treat for you and the driver too, just a little welcome to Calbayog party Cliff’s first time Grace was born on Almagro but her family moved to Manila to work their fish market when she was young child, so her first trip home in many years.

        1. Okay cool. I’ll ask Ado about the price when he comes in tonight. I’ll let you know. He might not want to eat though. I’ll try to talk him into it.
          Did u get ur Pepsi order?
          I have to shut down the computer for now. Fan is bring used elsewhere and it’s too hot in here again.

          1. Cliff and Grace’s flight info
            07-FEB-12 Z2 Zest Air 280 V AN365 CONFIRM
            From: MANILA ETD: 1000 DOMESTIC TERMINAL 4
            To: CALBAYOG ETA: 1125 CALBAYOG AIRPORT arrives feb 7th at 11:25 am, pick us up, to airport,pick up grace,cliff their luggage then on to Marcial’s Grill for Lunch, then drop off at our house is the plan. Be hungry, I think Cliff ,you and me can polish off 3 Goliath Bites of ribs.

          2. I asked Ado about the amount he would charge for this and he is kind of up in the air on a price because he says it’s a friend of mine. I told him that he still needs to feed his family so just quote a price. He’s debating himself. I was just wondering what you think a good price would be and I could tell him that.
            Be hungry? Okay. When you say that you and Cliff can polish of 3 Goliath Bites of ribs, is that each or together?
            I’ve never seen the Goliath Bite, but I assume it’s about as big as 2 big bites because of the price. I think I’ll be able to hold my own in that department.
            It may be my only meal of the day though.

          3. Oh … I see … it says that Cliff, you and me could polish off 3 Goliath bites. I didn’t catch that the first time.
            I guess that as long as the spring rolls, rice and ice tea go along with it, that should be good for me. Heck I ain’t being picky, I ain’t paying.

          4. if it was just round trip it would be easy to quote but you know the airports here and delays, plus lunch time, so it will be considerably longer time than just round tripper, how about 500 piso i buy lunch and we get a short sight seeing tour around town on the way back home?
            your right man’s got to feed his family.

          5. I’ll tell him and see what he says. I should tell you that he would be doing this instead of his normal multi-cab run that he does everyday, so he’d be losing that money to do this and remember that gas is expensive here. Just explaining everything so you’ll know all the facts, not judging, after all I don’t have to do anything and I’m not losing anything, everything is a gain for me. I will tell him of your proposal and see what his response is.

  3. UJ I remember awhile back you saying you was reading the Bourne series books. Was reading in MB that in the next couple of weeks they are going to be filming some of the scenes to the Bourne Legancy in Manila. Maybe you can get hired as extra and make a few pesos.

    1. Yes I have been seeing that on the news. Different lead role though. I mentioned it once before in one of my posts.
      The Bourne Legacy is Book 4 of 7 (so far that I know). If they go even remotely by the book, it should be good.
      The first 3 were very remotely by the book and they turned out good. I doubt I’ll go all the way to Manila to make a ‘few’ pesos though.
      If it was around here, I’d show up at the set and see.

  4. LOL, told you,told you, told you! best food in the Philippines is not the first time i heard that said about Marcial’s Grill, one the kano and a filipina said it when we were there last. The Springrolls are excellant, I agree, the Ribs, well let’s just say if all of Calbayog knew how good they really were there would be a Rib Shortage, in our area. I wish there was a bigger Jeepney or Multi-cab making trips to there need a big one as when you leave you are stuffed! No alcohol served there, it’s ok to me I don’t drink much and prefer soft drinks with a meal anyhow. Glad you enjoyed it!

    1. Yes, you told me. Gary told me, Blair told me. I got the hint and I’m glad I did. I’m kind of stuck here. I don’t want there to be a rib shortage, but I feel obligated to mention the restaurant in the blog. I think I’ll keep mentioning it and take a chance on the rib shortage. There are a lot of pigs here. I didn’t even notice about the alcohol, but you’re right. I don’t care either. I prefer ice tea with my meals. The Red Horse is for later.

      1. When we had our wedding reception on the 2nd floor, we did not do the rooftop afraid of rain, catering an excellent buffet meal was only P250 per person , plus we were allowed to bring in our own beer and soda that Marcial’s grill iced down for use, the Lechon baboy was extra we had to provide. They also provided the sound system and microphone with decorations SO cafe provided and delivered our cake which Marcial’s Grill had a nice display table set up for it. Pics on my FB UJ if you have not seen of our wedding there.

        1. Sounds like a good deal. I told Lita that if I had a party, I would have it at Marcial’s Grille just for an opportunity to get some more of those ribs.
          Plus, it is a nice looking room for a party. I’ve got some pictures of it on this site under the restaurant page.
