Anything Goes!

A Retired in Samar Merger

A Merger of Information. It took me a while to get it accomplished, but I seem to have it all set up and running. Finding the right plugin that would allow me to post my YouTube channel as a gallery on the Retired in Samar blog site took me some time to find, and when […]

I’ve Been Scammed! – Life in the Philippines

I Dropped My Guard! Just when you finish bragging on the honest and friendly people who surround you in your everyday life, someone finds a way to get your money! I’m not blaming anyone in my inner circles, nor am I blaming anybody from my area or my city. I don’t know who did it, […]

A Call-Out to Filipinos Overseas!

PHILIPPINE-AMERICAN FRIENDSHIP DAY! It’s only been a couple of days since the 4th of July (Philippine-American Friendship Day) and I have been seeing this post make its way around facebook and some online Filipino and expat forums. I thought it would be nice to share. Obviously written by a Filipino patriot but the actual author’s […]

A New Day, More Rain and a New World Order

A New Day We woke up this morning like every other morning, wondering what the agenda holds for this day. It’s not often that we do any out-planning, unless there is an event, party or fiesta… or a scheduled power outage (see my latest video). Anyway, a small-scale weather disturbance located to our west has […]

Brownout in Style!

Not So Fast! First things first, I need to apologize to all my valued visitors and blog subscribers for the disruption of my service. My site was hacked a little over a week ago and the result was that all visitors were being redirected to various porn sites. Last week, I posted this on Facebook: […]

Social Security Changes Happening NOW!

Changes to Social Security Claiming Rules. Just when you thought it was safe to begin planning on a retirement this year, the government passes a bill which changes the game for many, and specifically for those who will be turning 62 this year. I have attached a link to an article from Money Magazine that […]

Are We Living in a Warped World?

It Just Don’t Seem Right! Last week when the news broke about Kanye West’s $53 million dollar debt problem, I though to myself, “What a fool! … he should have done better with his earnings and spending his money. I thought this guy really lacks frugality!”  And that is about all the thought I gave […]

OMG, I’ve Been Taken Aback!

Someone is in the Attack Mode! Today, I was taken aback by some harsh comments that were directed at me in a Facebook forum that I visit regularly here in the Philippines. Most days when I visit this forum, I witness good information, stories, great guidance and good advice. In this forum, I rarely comment […]
