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.

Have You Heard of UMPQUA Bank? Good Luck Dinah and Elaine!
I am sorry to admit that last month was the first time I heard of UMPQUA bank. My oldest daughter, Dinah, had been offered a position she can not refused at UMPQUA Bank in Portland, Oregon. This will be her first time to relocate from California to Oregon. She is very excited since this is a Promotion. The company has offered her a good salary, bonus sign up and help in her relocation expenses as well as a prestigious title of Assistant Vice President. Your Mom and I wish you luck and success in your new position. Elaine is relocating with her. The following three photos were taken during their visit last week. The other photos were taken during the Farewell Party for Dinah by Friends and Relatives in Concord.
