I wonder if we should not have a thread all to itself, for daily, weekly, monthly or whatever checking in. Well lets see if there is any interest and if there is, then maybe Jack will make a thread just for checking in.

My thoughts on this is that often members read the forum and some post while others rarely if ever do, well I was thinking, yes I know that can be dangerous,  8) how about if all a member has to do is post a quick hello, or something like I am having a great life in the Philippines, or I hope to have a great life in the Philippine, or whatever, just so we all get to know who reads this forum and possibly what their interests in the Philippines might be about.

For those of you who do not know me, I have been married to my lovely wife for coming on 20 years now and we have traveled back and forth to the Philippine since getting married and in the recent years since I totally retired, we have been visiting yearly and spending 3 or 4 months a year in Cebu while also traveling around the Philippines visiting family and friends. My wife and I just got back to the US this week, so

so far it has been a great year, how about you? How is your life going?

Here you go, Lee!  I made it a "sticky" so it will always be at the top of this page under this topic.  It's all yours Big Boy! 

Today is the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby!  The fastest 2 minutes in sports.  It's a holiday in Louisville, where we've been partying for 2 weeks.  I'll be away from the computer all day, so everyone behave!  Lee and Rufus are in charge while I'm away eating BBQ, burgoo and drinking ice cold beer.   Have fun, y'all!    :)

meylou:
We are fine, thanks for asking. 
Glad to you know you are now back in Florida. Hopefully it's not raining too much where you are. The Florida Panhandle got too much rain in a 24-hour period.

We are now following the NHL hockey playoff games, since we only really watch during playoffs.
Rooting for LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks. Crosstown rivalry game today. 

I also enjoy watching what fancy hats people wear during the Kentucky Derby. It's amusing. :)  I wonder if Jack and Gloria wear fun or fancy hats while partying during this time. :) :) ;)

hitekcountry:
Ok Lee Iíll jump in here and contribute. :)

As some of you may remember Iím interested in evaluating the Philippines as a place to retire to. Actually Iíve been retired for some time now living in San Jose Ca but I donít much care for big cities. I grew up a country boy. So Manila/ Makati is not a consideration and even a gated community/suburb would not be appealing to me at all.

Also because I now have Dual citizenship I can own land, limited to the same limitations of any Philippine citizen.

Iíve been sidetracked for over 4 months on a large project but now Iím done with that and now looking to plan my next trip to the Philippines. One or my relatives that we stayed with when we were in the Philippines will be here in CA in a few days. Iíll be talking to him about planning my trip.
   
Who knows I might even get the chance to have breakfast at IHOP with Art and Bud. 8)

@ graywolf
In charge, please turn over the keys lol. Just kidding, I sure do not need the extra work/ :D

@ meyleu
 The weather here in Fort Lauderdale Florida is great but it does look like it might rain later today, hope your game goes well.

@ hitekcountry

Glad you jumped in, being a dual citizen will sure make it a lot easier for you to deal with any issues. I wish I was there to join you Art and Bud at IHOP, I guess I will have to settle for the ones in the US and we also love the Original House of Pancakes they have here, I love the Apple baby pancakes.
mmmmmm mummm good but lots of sugar.

Thanks to you all for jumping in, I hope others will jump in as well, so we can all get to know each other to enhance this community.
