We're gathering Facebook "likes" for my son

Hi everyone.  My first post for the new year is a request to "like" my 8 year old son's poster on Facebook.  It's his entry to Pinoy Stop's first anniversary poster making contest.  He mad it to the top ten, and voting is done by earning Facebook likes.

If you would like to help, please click on the link below which will display a scan of my son's poster entry, then "like" it.

Thanks in advance and happy new year!

May Flowers at Dolores, Quezon

Part of our itinerary during our vacation in the Philippines was to visit my wife's hometown in Dolores, Quezon.  We were hoping to witness the Flores de Mayo procession; unfortunately we were informed that it was going to take place towards the end of the month, and we were leaving in the middle of May!  At any rate, we were also visiting my wife's relatives so that in itself was good reason to go.

I just wanted to share this particular day which I was expecting to be just another strolling and visiting afternoon, and in the end it became quite a wonderful time altogether.

In the afternoon, we visited the local Church.  We were told that my wife's cousins were there, leading the choir.

Bid to save post office moves

Postmaster General Josefina dela Cruz acknowledged that she had received several postcards sent on June 18 to draw attention to a campaign to exclude the American-era post office from a PhilPost plan to develop its Baguio property. In a July 12 letter sent by “snail mail” to Joel Arthur Tibaldo, the government employee who began the campaign, Dela Cruz wrote: “Please be informed that we are evaluating your proposal to convert the Baguio City post office into a museum.”

A visit to Dolores Central School in my wife's hometown of Quezon


While in Dolores, Quezon (we went on holiday in the Philippines a couple of months ago), we decided to pay a visit to my wife's old grade school (Dolores Central School), especially when she learned that her high school teacher might also be there.  It's the start of the summer holiday for kids so it was relatively quiet.
