Religion in the UK

Cameroon is off his trolley!.In this day and age,you,d have thought that people would wake up to the fact that morality is not the property of the church to be used to bludgeon people into following their particular fantasy.Morality is a choice we make to enable us to handle life and the choices presented to us.

Nice one Miriam

Miriam is one of the very few philippine senators worth anything,tough,outspoken,sometimes controversial,but with a sense of humour and style that makes her stand out from the rest.http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/241475/news/nation/miriam-elected-judge-of-international-criminal-court.
Just wish that she would run for president,if she did there would really be some hot debates in congress as well as the senate!LOL!

Violation of her rights

Like it or not ,Mrs Arroyo is not an ordinary prisoner,if she was why would they go to the expense of redecorating her accommodation in the first place.She can easily afford topay for her own celphone and internet access,unlike most ordinary prisoners,so they really do not have any real reason to deny her the right to a link to the outside world!http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=754775&publicationSub

Mayan ruins dicovered

One of my main interests is the ancient peoples of the America`s,from the earliest people who crossed over  using the land bridge that existed up till the last ice age, to the relatively modern civilisations of the Apaches and Navajo of the southwestern USAhttp://www.menafn.com/qn_news_story.asp?storyid=%7B4fa5c93c-ccb1-4690-95c2-fa111570d0e3%7D

No fly zone

Wasting a lot of tax money on all this protection for Gloria and she has not as yet even been convicted ,i seriously doubt that she will be,given the past administrations failure to pin anything on Mrs Marcos,the irony is that ex president Erap Estrada was pardoned by Gloria for taking kickbacks from jueteng lords

Malaria Vaccine

 It may not be a cure all but at least its a good step in the right direction, combined with a concerted effort to clean up breeding areas and  build environmental awareness,should lower the no of victims significantly http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-12-01/mosquito-control-malaria-diagnosis-as-vital-as-a-vaccine-view.html

Malunnguy Fail

One of my favourite Filipino dishes is  mongo beans and malunguy leaves cooked with either pork or beef bits .The leaves  contain plenty of vitamins and are a good source of fibre,one time my wife asked me to pick some from the top of a tree close to where we lived,alongside the road.
At that time  i weighed a bit more than i do now and  i was not aware how soft Malunguy wood is and climbed the tree to pick the best leaves high up,but the branch that i was standing on suddenly gave way and i fell to the  ground ,landing upside down  and much to my wife,s amusement stayed upside down for about a minute  as a bus load of passengers gawked at me and my wife having hysterics!

Things i love about the Philippines

Topographical map of the United Kingdom, Penni...
Image via Wikipedia
 Have to say that despite all the problems we have experienced since we moved out here in 1987,i would never go back to the UK and at my age(57)it would not be practical even if i wanted to.,besides i could never take the cold now. Am now completely and irreversibly acclimatized to life out here!LOL:-)).
Last time i was back in England was in1992 and was appalled at how pale and unhealthy everyone looked! Like they had given to much blood to the Red Cross, or perhaps they met this lady!

Corruption be my name

Corruption be my name.                                                                                            
 Its  no good Aquino going after Arroyo, If he does not overhaul the whole system of government and the police force from top to bottom.corruption is built into the very fabric of government here
One high profile case even if it is accomplished does not make up for more than a half century of systematic plundering of the countries wealth.The shameful fact is that the Filipino people are too easily swayed into voting in power people who  are just popular  personalities.When Mrs Marcos and her family still have an influence on some parts of the country and a convicted ex-president like Joseph Estrada wanders around giving unhelpful advice ,what hope is there for any real change.
