I don't intend to go back, not so much because of the travel time but because I was very disappointed with the country.
    What disappointed you?

    For a few dollars a paycheck, now, you could start a fund that could secure you a decent care option when you are an old fart. If you wait 'til your my age to sweat it, it will probably be too late.

    I don't wish to highjack Lon's thread as I could write a short book on the problems with The Philippines. Suffice it to say, the horrible traffic, congestion everywhere, oppressive heat and humidity . . . .

    Long Term Care Insurance is the answer.

    I wonder if Lon has become forgetful. Well wishes to you, Lon. I always liked you.

    A friend and former boss lives in one of those assisted living homes.
    The building was originally a hotel. I've been to visit a few times, and it seems to be pretty decent. Nick is happy. When the Mrs goes, and I can no longer travel, I may look for such a place.
