Good day folks, I have only one laptop and as it limps along each day it has been faithful to both my wife and me. To be honest with you I haven’t gave Obamacare much attention as I should. I know some folks here are set in their ways and some look for adventure while others want to the Philippines their home. For those not residing in the USA, Obamacare should not have any impact on expats living in the Philippines. Right after the October 15 earthquake that laid waste to much of Bohol, residents of this remote northern barangay noticed a long earthen wall that suddenly appeared in their community. The best expression of love is time. The more time you give, the more you reveal its importance and value to you. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back.

South Korean soldiers are everywhere on the south side of the misleadingly named Demilitarized Zone. They guard buildings and man roadblocks to keep the invading hordes at bay. Today the hordes aren’t North Korean soldiers. They’re tourists. With the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union gone, tourists now flock to both sides of the DMZ, the world’s most heavily armed border, established 60 years ago. But what they see is more likely to be tacky than terrifying. http://news.yahoo.com/tank-traps-meet-tourist-traps-koreas-demilitarised-zone-000817486–sector.html
