Wasn’t that REO Speedwagon?

A 66 Grand Prix!!! Sweet!
My first car was a 68 Oldsmobile Delta 88 and that car was a frigging tank, and a piece of crap to boot.

The Stand, It, The Green Mile, The Dark Tower series; these are my favorites from King. I’m reading “Under The Dome” right now but am having a surprisingly hard time getting through it.

Great post, John.

Deadwood! Most excellent show. I’ve watched it twice, myself 🙂
And those burgers and beans look pretty damned good.

Welcome back, John 😀

Good to hear from you again. Lol, you got pooped on by a bird! Classic!

Surely you’re going to go get checked out to see why you blacked out?

Now see, that wasn’t that hard, was it? 🙂
Nice pics, btw. When I was over here the first time, many years ago, we used to go down to the PI for the “Cope Thunder” exercises, a month at a time. I always thought; a nice place to visit, but I sure wouldn’t want to live there…back then the poverty was really bad and judging from some of your pics, it hasn’t changed all that much although the jeepneys do look a bit more modern than they did back in the late 80’s. It’s a beautiful place, though, for the most part.

Everything ok, John?

You’re back with a vengeance, I see 😉

Good to see you back, John.

I didn’t do that story justice with my post though…check out The Party Pooper’s take on it:

Welcome back, John. A change of scenery is always refreshing for the soul.

4.8 million won per month in rent? 😯 Holy crap, that’s expensive! And I complain about paying 1.2 million per month for a 47 pyong apt…

“Wish we could get some rain to cool things down!”
Uh huh. Not too long ago some people were complaining about the rain. Like I told anyone who stood still long anough to listen, as far as I was concerned, it could have rained all the way into the first week of September.

Rain is good, John. Next week, when it’s blazing hot, we’ll be wishing for rain.

I’ll address another part of your post. Once you have the webcam installed, you need another program like MSN Messenger which lets you chat with another person who also has it installed. Once you establish the connection, you can share your video with them, and they’ll see the image you’re transmitting (your ugly mug, as you put it :smile:) right in their messenger program. If they also have a webcam, you’ll see them while they see you.
Hope you get over the winter blues…I go through a similar occurance every winter but for me it’s not being able to get out of the house to go fishing…come on spring!

After years of owning second-hand cars, I finally made up my mind to buy a new one after I retired from the military and got hired on in my new job. I decided on a Korean car (SM5) because an American car with the same options would have been twice as much and it would also have been more expensive to maintain over here.
Of course you’re in a different boat – you’re looking at short term whereas I was looking at long term since I’ll be here a while yet. When buying a used car, it is better to buy one on the local economy or from a Korean you know/trust vs. buying one from from a departing GI. As one of the above said, most of those cars have been passed down year to year and very few people take care of them, knowing it’s a temporary vehicle.

I’m a diehard Cleveland Indians fan (somebody has to be, right?), and have been since I came to the states in 1969. All those years they were in the basement so I was ecstatic when they finally went to the world series in 97, only to lose to Florida in the 11th inning of game 7…a moment I’ll never forget 🙁

Plenty of fishing up in your neck of the woods – you just have to drive a little farther than I do. But it’s there. Especially if you like to fly fish for trout, you can head east into the hills and really get to enjoy the beauty of Korea. If you ever want more info, go to anglerstown, click on the English tab, then click on the Destinations tab on the left. Also check out the fishing reports. For me, fishing is the best therapy and it gives me a chance to enjoy a little solitude.

50? Is that all? Oh no, extraordinary is still well within your grasp, if only you strive for it. I decided long, long ago not to ever let age be a factor in anything I do in this life, which is good and bad at the same time, as I’ve been finding out in the gym the last year (no matter what the mind may think, the body just ain’t the same as it was 15 or 20 years ago!)
I don’t know what you’ve been going through and it’s no one’s business but your own – but I’m glad to see that whatever it is/was, you’ve decided to get off the mat and go a few more rounds.
Good on ya.

Hehe, that’s why you should solicit “volunteers” from the guests to help you get it all together. I’m hoping to get some BBQing (and of course, fishing) done this weekend but the weather report isn’t looking too good right now. Let’s hope it improves as the week goes on!

Now that’s more like it! Glad to hear things are better…
» Posted By Nomad On 23/May/2005 @ 2:20 pm
Hope whatever it is gets better…

Scary, isn’t it? 😉
Maybe the lesson I learned in the Phillipines will soon apply here – If a tall, beautiful woman approaches you, and she’s too beautiful, look for an adams apple.
