Retired in Samar MIA – From YouTube

Gone But Not Forgotten! It seems like it has been forever. And with the reminders I get almost daily from my viewers, it has been way too long. March 10th (last Spring) was the last time I posted a video. At that time, I was working on a series of videos documenting our house expansion […]

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 […]

Pokemon Go in the Philippines, Nope!

I Shall Return! Okay, I should have made that proclamation before I left, but I really didn’t go anywhere.

SuperCat and a Sourpuss!

Yesterday, I scoured through some old video files (years ago, video footage would have been the correct terminology) and found enough frames (film) to put together a short video about travelling from Cebu City to Tagbilaran, Bohol by way of a SuperCat Ferry.

A Waterfall Visit

A Visit to Tarangban Falls Friends of ours had some visitors from California come to town and asked if we wanted to join them on a hiking adventure to a local area waterfalls.
