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.

My Alma Mater, UIC Asking for Help
One of my Alma Mater, the University of Illinois, College of Pharmacy is asking my help and Donation. I wish I could help, but being retired and on a fixed budget there is nothing I could spare these days. Along the same line my other Alma Mater UC Berkeley Haas Business School have also asked for help through a personal call besides E-mail that I posted in my blog the other day. Here's an e-mail from UIC College of Pharmacy.
Dear Dr. Katague,
For many of us, the holidays are a time to appreciate one another, reflect upon the past year and to support causes that make a difference.
Be Merry. Be Generous. Give today to the College’s Annual Fund. Each year donations to the annual fund from alumni and donors like you help…
Support academic enrichment projects, such as guest lecturers and career day opportunities; student life, through improved facility enhancements and alumni/student networking events; Student organization support, by way of supporting extracurricular programs and activities that add significantly to our students' experiences; and financial aid in the form of general scholarship support.
Please consider making a gift to the College of Pharmacy this holiday season!
Thank you for your continued support. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!
