  1. Hi there!
    Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.
    Comments, compliments, critiques and wisecracks are most welcome.
    You have a great blog. “See” you again soon.

  2. Hello, JC – I hope things are going better for you there. Our thoughts are still with you and your country. Keep up the good blogging! D

    1. Thank you for the positive thoughts. We’re back on track…it’s time to build Tacloban City after typhoon Yolanda. Hope everything is well on your end.

      1. Things are good here. Glad to hear you are back on track. What a trying time for you and your country.

  3. Hello, “JC” – hope things are going well over there. We are still so saddened by the tragedy. Hope you all are continuing to persevere.

    1. Metro Manila (where I live) was spared but the devastation in Tacloban really shook me and the rest of my countrymen. Thanks to CNN and other media, the world now knows our plight here. We’ll fly high again, as my colleagues in the industry say. Thanks to the US, EU, Asean, UN and the rest of the international community and organizations for your help. It is deeply appreciated by my countrymen.

      1. I am glad to hear you are getting help. It is good in times like these for us to stand together. Please be well, my friend.
