  1. “I’ll just remember to be the best person I can. Fate will find me when it’s ready for me, and that’s no coincidence”.

    Hello UJ, what a profound statement! One could also relate Fate with Faith, depending on your beliefs. I’m a reborn Christian but still on the edge about taking the leap of Faith completely. Perhaps there are bad things today that are affecting good honest people that prevents me from taking that jump off the cliff. Although, what I consider miracles have actually affected my life for the better, including my marriage of 26 years and a wonderful family. Whatever it is, I would like to say that I’m generally a good person to myself and others, just like you. Your ultimate donation to your sister is highly commendable. Well done sir! Respectfully — Jake

    1. Thanks Jake. You know I just thought that line as I was typing, it just came to me.
      Perhaps your are right. Maybe something is stopping you from committing all the way because you need to stay the current path for now until either you or someone you are associated with, completes something. Who knows what the heck is going on, I sure don’t. I just hang around and be me. As Doris Day would say, “Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not our’s to see. Que sera sera”.
      I was wondering why you leave the comments for the other blog here instead of at the other blog?

      1. For the life of me, I tried to look for entering my comments in your other blog but I couldn’t without signing up for a Google email account. Or is it something very easy and I can’t see pass my nose…he, he.

        1. You mean you don’t see where you can enter comments at the bottom of the posts? Just click where it says “0 comments”. It shows up on mine, but I have a Google e-mail, so I don’t know if that makes a difference. I don’t see why you should have to though. Take a peek at it again. After each post should be a place to enter comments. If it is asking for you to do something you don’t want to do, let me know and I’ll see if I can fix it. If it is, and I can’t, then I just won’t have a blog there anymore. I hate it when a site tries to get me to do something I don’t want to do. I can always get another WordPress account, but the Blogger one is easier to start and is easier for beginners. It doesn’t have as many options though. It’s has enough, just not as many.
          Sorry it took me so long to answer. For some reason I just didn’t see that comment there.

  2. Hello UJ,

    It is not often to hear extended family members assisting new expats start his new life and business in the Philippines. I believe it is a testament of Lita to bring it all together because she is well respected and loved by her family. I have already visited your “stupidthoughts” blog and will look forward in discussing the same topics of curiosity: religion, war and UFO’s. By the way, the life cycle of a common house fly was great! Thank you — Jake

    1. Well she is the manang of the family so that has some pull. I’m sure that if it wasn’t for the rest of the family helping us, we probably would have moved back to Texas already. I’ve got the next post on that other site already, Fate vs Coincidence. I just put it there tonight. My next one on the list is UFO’s, but it will probably be next week before I put it in. I’m not sure if you went there before or after I posted it though. Glad you like it and hope many others do also.

      1. Although it seems like no one looks at this comment section, especially recently, it’s the best place to leave this message right now.
        My Internet has been done since Saturday night. It’ is now Monday afternoon and I’m back. I had to have my modem replaced again.
        Anyway…I”ll be back on later to get caught up on everything. There will be a lot of “My Posts” done later this afternoon and tonight.
