Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Ben Steele Drawings of the Bataan Death March
Yesterday, I posted my review of the book on the Bataan Death March, Tears in the Darkness. The protagonist in the book is Ben Steele, a cowboy from Montana who became a painter and Professor of Art after the war. In the first video, Ben Steele sketches and drawings are shown with his own description of the events. The next four videos are professional videos of the Bataan Death March up to the Raid of Cabanatuan-saving the prisoners of war from the camp in early, 1945 just before the end of the war. I hope you enjoy the videos.
