    Last one out turn off the lights

    When I joined this forum around eight years ago the place was a hive of activity, but nowadays....

    I've just looked on the members list and nobody who has joined in the last five last years has topped 1,000 posts yet. I don't think anybody's come even close. Why is this? Is it because guys are more wary about dating Filipina's because of the unscrupulous online dating scene?

    I'm guessing that the next post on this thread if there is one will be in three or four weeks time.

    Was thinking the same thing myself Jamie. This site has helped so many people and given so much support, is it because that's not needed so much these days?

    I really owe this site going back ten years, but to be honest I just look in from time to time and rarely contribute, so I'm a culprit - :(

    Must try harder

    I live in the Philippines jungle now, so look in when the drums are facing in the right direction.

    Not trying to get the Mrs into the UK either, so that also reduces my possible involvement... but still alive and well after (omg ! ) 13+ years on the forum .

    I'm fine apart from turning my ankle over on a very uneven pavement Sunday night and falling over. People must have thought I was drunk especially as I was very close to an off-licence. The pain has eased somewhat. Didn't sleep well Sunday night and couldn't put any weight on my foot early Monday. Walks for the dog should resume shortly.

    Tagum has grown, construction everywhere. New flyover going over the highway, so soon all city traffic can pass underneath.

    Yes, I witnessed that a little time ago last time we went to ComVal.....many changes and new constructions.

    Metro Manila just never stops constuctions of flyovers, new roads and train lines.......I fear its all too late.

    They just need a train line...or a few, that go beyond the city limit.... as has been 'promised' for a couple of decades now.

    Perhaps upgrade the roads BEFORE selling millions of vehicles on 'easy payment' plans. too ?

    Hiya Terpe

    Glad to hear you're doing well. You helped me a lot when I first came here. Always wanted to buy you a drink!
    Maybe one day in the Phils?
    When I visit it's normally Salcedo area and Batangas. Manila is nuts. Buildings shooting up
    with what appears to be little thought to the infrastructure necessary to support the growing population.
    Oh well onwards and upwards as they probably say in the Manila construction business.

    Here's wishing you all the best for a grand life if France.
    For us it was touch and go if France, Spain or Philippines.
    We finally agreed on Philippines as I have no family in Europe but my wife has a network of family in Phils if she ever needs a support network.
    As it worked out we now have virtually no contact to her family.

    Anyway all best wishes for a life in France

    good to hear from you Peter and the other stalwarts

    I'm still around, you would have thought with little Joe being 12 now and that he can look after himself I would have more time on my hands but I seem to have less time than ever, or maybe i'm just getting old

    Great to hear from you my dear friend. I always thought when I retired I'd have so much time to relax and enjoy long lost pastimes......wrong...

    Good luck Joe in securing that extra time you look for....

    First time I looked in for ages, think one of the reasons was too many people were banned. Was lively,controversial but the many topics and fair to say disagreements kept it alive. Not wishing to insult anyone but every-time I looked in it seemed pretty boring.
