    yes my friend, it probably is, however the "off topic thread" i think is designed for fools like us to get rid of excess energy so we don't pollute the more serious threads here (usually anyway) i for one diagnosed my self as "attention deficit disorder" about 60 years too late to do any good. it was unknown in the fifties. back then it was just your aunties saying you had ants in your pants!

    for as for wig wearing apes it gets a little more murky. as you can see from my avatar (or is that really me) i am just a fun loving old fart (partly quoting our leader) NMRN however might be a true nut job. we are still working on that.

    please remember that you are in the philippines. i do not think any of us have high blood pressure anymore. the culture here discourages confrontation and conflict and criticism (the three C's) also know as the three cornerstones of hypertension. (the fourth is wives and/or ex wives (usually))

    anyway, God bless you and hope you don't feel offended. its the last thing any of us want. well, most of us anyway

    Now, where were we before we were interrupted - oh yes, discussing why people who don't like off-topic items in off-topic threads read them and comment rather than not read them and save themselves the bother of commenting.

    I found this from First10EM, there's a chart (Table 2) that estimates the size and number of particles in a sneeze or cough worth reviewing, but then the part after, "What happens to the aerosol after its expelled"is worth reading. Glad to see Asian names in the cites. I couldn't find anything derogatory on First10EM, and it was last updated July 20, so the finding that tuba coma mentioned isn't in there, but it talks about normal breathing producing aerosols, then think viral load. Air conditioned buildings are something to avoid.

    Dumaguete has been greatly damaged by publications like Forbes who are saying its the number #1 retirement place in the world,, it is not. There are a lot of people here investing in property with those claims in mind. Rooms and studio apartments on the beach near Dumaguete have been running around 9,000 to 12,000 a month for years and like places in the hills and further out of town were renting for 6,000 to 8,000 a month.. Due to the big hype about living at higher elevations for a cooler climate these are now apartments are no going for 16,000 to 25,000 per month.
    Property's that were 150 to 200 peso's a sqmtr in the hills are now going for 1,200 to 1,500 a sqmtr. With no legal right of way overloaded water and electric systems in the vicinity if their are any at all within a 500 meters of the property.. Come with open eyes and look around before making a commitment here..

    I wonder how many it is that has read a 8 year old article about Dumaguete in Forbes and it's 'great beaches', picking the city as first choice and discovering something very different :bag:

    I would ask people on here to read the "Blog" i have not read so much untrue blather on here for years.. Expats blowing their own horns and saying how great it is here for one reason only..Monetary gain to the detriment of long term residents here. IMHO

    This reply is a repeat of an earlier reply WHICH WAS DELETED. I am sure you did not delete it as you do not have that POWER. It will not be exact as I do not keep copies of my postings, but it will be in essence very similar:

    Only TWO postings mentioned Taal. If people feel their replies to requests for help are not appreciated then it may be they will not offer that help in the future.
