I used to wonder what it would be like to read other people's minds.

Then I got a facebook account and now I am over it.

I have a video filmed in 2005 showing a trip from Palompon to Maasin. It has a short section showing the Hilongos market area. It is on my website. Unfortunately I have been told I can't post links to my website so i can't give you the link.

Watched the video's Jim,..  great to see the village life that I'm used to, instead of glossy high end hotels and fancy houses !
Looking forward to watching them all later,
Going over again in 4 weeks time, so these have just put me in the mood.

Jonny,

Other forums of the same style as this forum have an "insert media button". It does not seem to be enabled, at least it is not enabled for me.

I didn't notice that we did not have a video button.   :D   Until I add a video button you can post the video on YouTube and provide a link to that, as you've done for the others.

Right now I'm emailing from an old laptop that barely works.   When I get my main computer back from the shop (in the next couple of days), I'll see about adding that button.

Yes, it's true that we do not allow anyone to post a link to their website when it's a blog or what we might consider a competing website.   'Nuff said about that.
