FIRST TIME AGREE

For years, as Harry the Horse, and now as JimmyDHorse I was in favor of legalizing prostitution in the US.  Get rid of pimps, tax the oldest profession and let men and women enjoy their sexual proclivities without the stigma of breaking the law.  Now, to my surprise, for the first time I am in agreement with a judge in California.  I find it hard to do so as it is so unusual for a judge there to make sense.
Needless to say, I am sure many will disagree with me, that’s OK.  But, how can you agree with all the LGBTQ business and having playboy feature a naked female transgender, legalizing drugs, giving rights to illegals, justify kneeling during the National Anthem and disagree with legalizing prostitution.  Why discriminate against those hard working women, and yes, some men as well.  If America is going down the road to disaster at least let one and all enjoy the one universal pleasure left to us – SEX!

PAL HAS NEW FLIGHT

https://www.thepinaysolobackpacker.com/catanduanes-unseen-beaches-virac/

Philippine Airlines (PAL) has started flights three times a week to from Clark to Catanduanes, a very beautiful location with many beaches to explore.  The above link will give you a good idea of why it is appealing to many tourists.  Now, when visiting Angeles City PAL offers easy access to this location.  If I was a bit younger and my legs worked a bit better I sure would book a flight to explore the Island.  I am sure backpackers and surfers have already discovered the place.

If only PAL or Cebu Pacific would offer flights from Clark to Bangkok.  It is a pain in the butt to have to get to Manila for this flight.

WISDOM

It has been a while since I passed on a bit of humor but when my friend Dave C sent it to me I thought it contained very good medical advice. Read and enjoy:

Pauline, a local Angeles City lady boy goes into the doctor’s office and has some tests run. 

The doctor comes back and says, ‘Pauline, I’m not going to beat around the bush. You have AIDS.’ 
Pauline is devastated. ‘Doc, what can I do?’

‘Eat 1 curry sausage, 
1 head of Cabbage, 
20 unpeeled carrots drenched in hot sauce, 
10 Jalapeno Peppers, 
40 walnuts and 40 peanuts, 
1/2 box Of All Bran, 
And top it off with a litre of prune juice..’ 
Pauline asks bewildered, ‘Will that cure me, Doc?’ 
Doc says ‘No, but it should leave you with a better understanding of what your ARSE is for.’

(See, I told you, words of wisdom)

COOL STUFF

For this old fart, one not having a Smart phone, I think these two items I am going to mention is cool.  The first one is GRAB CAR.  When you get to Angeles City, or land at Clark Airport, get you smart phone and add the app “grab car” and then if you have not arranged transportation to your AC hotel or house, contact Grab Car and you will be told how long it will be for them to pick you up, how long to your destination and the price.  In fact there is a Grab Car booth outside the airport or in the terminal, not sure of that.  Even in town use this service on a daily basis.  travel in comfort instead of trying to squeeze into a tricycle and having to pay more than you should.  I have a dumb phone so I can’t get any apps but many locals and tourists have told me how great this service is; of course the tricycle drivers are not happy.  Man, I might have to buy a smart phone and then take lessons on how to use it.

Oh yes, #2, at the Clark Airport they now have contracted with the Genesis Bus Company to have bus service  leaving Clark and going to the Manila airport for P350.  You can get the schedule at the airport when you land.  The plans are to keep adding more routes to include Subic and other destinations in Manila.

When you get to Clark try to get a feel for the place and see how much construction is taking place within Clark.  It is mind boggling.  Oh, wait, one other tidbit I picked up is that the  Philippine Air Force will be moving out by 2010 and that will free up a whole bunch of prime real estate.

That’s it for now, just finished watching a great Tina Turner concert on my TV and time for bed.  Vina, Mrs Horse, has told me we will be going to the farm tomorrow so have to get up early.  By the way, I am still recovering from my knee replacement surgery and taking physical therapy at Clark Medical City.  I also use the Kandi Tower gym which is fantastic.  It is located on the 11th floor and the view is spectacular.  Membership is P2,500 and personal trainers are available.  Check it out.  Construction of a final tower is in progress and I hear many of the units are already reserved.  If you are interested in retiring or spending a lot of time here, you can’t go wrong with Kandi Suites.  Look it up!

Good night!!

THE BALMER MURDER CASE

Time for me to go back a few years to bring up a bit of an update on the David Balmer murder case.  I have just received information that John Santos was finally sentenced to 8 years in jail.  Who is John Santos?  He was the Filipino who drove the car for murder suspects Tim Kaufman and Joe Tramatano.  He ended up being a key witness in the case for the Prosecution.  Unfortunately, there was never a prosecution.  Tim Kaufman (American) was extradited from the US and put in the City jail awaiting trial.  Regretfully he died in jail by taking taking some sort of medicine that he had put together himself.  He claimed he was innocent of the crime but never made it to trial.  His accomplice, Joe (American) was able to skip the country after attending the funeral of Balmer and his girlfriend.  The were both shot to death as they were sleeping at David’s house early in the morning.  It was a horrible murder and many questions as to motive and who else was involved still exist.  Joe has been reported to have been seen in Thailand and Cambodia over the years but the trail has gone cold.  He is wanted by the FBI and Interpol but by now no agency appears to be actively searching for him.  We can only hope that he might make a mistake some time in the future and will be caught.  It will be a shame if John Santos is the only person paying the price for this murder.  It is also a shame that Tim Kaufman never went to trial and could not defend himself.  Too many questions.

It is sort of like the many questions about what happened to Lewis, the owner of the Lewis Grand Hotel.  Just like magic, he disappeared, never to be seen again.  Lots of theories, lots of questions.  The local police never exerted too much effort on this case.  His name crops up off and on in local conversation from those who knew him and the question is always the same “Gee, what happened to Lewis”, a question never to be answered??
