Hey Ray!

Baler is the town in Aurora Province. Right on the beach. It's known for some of the best surfing in the Philippines because of the cove facing the prevailing ocean breeze and ocean currents. There are quite a few beach resorts catering to the locals and visiting beach and surf crowd. I hear Bayler-View is a good place. My nephew lives there and has shared some pics with me on social media. It's a nice looking beach resort. Wish I could offer more, but I didn't get to visit as planned due to typhoons and time restrictions

I was very fortunate in the location I was raised just outside of Toledo. Toledo itself catered many big named concerts but Detroit was only an hour drive and Cleveland and hour and half and they drew all the huge names of the times. I have been to well over a hundred concerts since 1970 and my hearing now is showing the signs of it, stagger ed to many and was practically carried of of several I liked to party without limits. Yes remember well you could go to a concert with three headliners and two opening band for ten bucks.

Update on my Windows 10, I installed it on both my desk tops and one desk top had to be reformatted so I had them put Win 7 ultimate on that one and my other desk top kept loading updates that always failed for nearly a year and then I got the black screen so what I did was hit the reset button I think 2 times and got the blue screen and clicked on the Windows 10 reset it took a couple hours and fixed the issue including the constant updates but if this happens again I'm going to have it reformatted and install Win 7.

Groannnnn.  You had to mention Celine Dion.  I can not stomach her especially when I hear her doing one of Heart's hits.  Apparently, she is going to be in town, in I guess June or July.  All I heard was one or the other from my wife today and all I remember is it started with a "J".  She says she wants to go and thought that I would want to go also.  I said, no, not really.  Told her I would give her a ride but to get a couple of the other girls to go with her.  If it is at MOA, I could just drop them off and go over to the mall and hang out until it is over rather than have to deal with traffic for two trips out that way.

So, there you guys go if you are in to her music.  Not me though.

I am happy to see it is back open, since we will be back in Cebu in less than a month and we like to shop at the Rustan's there and use the mall for exercise and restaurants.
THE Ayala Center Cebu is reopening today, Jan. 18

I find that the top concert artists, in most generations, are those who entertain as much with their words and stage performance as with their voice. 
Elvis, Bryan Adams, Garth brooks, Journey(Arnel Pineda, not Steve Perry, who I think actually had the better voice), Black Eyed Peas, etc.  They all owned the stage when they had their concerts.  They did more than just sit on a stool or stand at a mic and sing.  They talked, they ran around, danced, and interacted with the crowd.  I've had the opportunity to see all those above artists minus Elvis.  He died too young for me to enjoy his work. 
I also saw some amazing singers in concert...who just didn't have the greatest concerts and you could feel it in the crowd.  Won tickets to Celine Dion.  I wasn't going to go till the gf demanded we go.  Sucked.  Amazing voice...but put in her CD and it sounded the same.  Boring.  Same was true with an early Mariah Carey concert i went to.  LOVE her early stuff...but the concert was just so blah.
The Black Eyed Peas will never match Carey or Dion in their vocal talents, but their concert rocked from the first beat through to the last ovation they gave. 
Music performed is better than good vocals/music when it comes to concerts.  Wish I could have seen the old Eagles or Elvis or even going back further, I think the Rat Pack most likely threw some legendary gigs.

Had the opportunity to see the eagles (with Joe Walsh on Guitar) back in 1979.   Warm up bands were little river band and Heart   GREAT CONCERT!!  That was also back when you could see a concert for 10 dollars or less (for front row seats), you could take cameras in (amongst other things :) ).   
Great time to grow up, and yes the music was a huge part of that.

I saw Little River Band in either '80 or '81 for something like only 7 or 8 bucks but it was only them.  Was not in the Coliseum but another venue (music hall) in town.  Never got the opportunity to see Eagles in concert live.
