Happy Father's Day Pa



I was thinking of preparing a post about Father's Day not in honor of my father because I have already done that in my IBANAG Family blog. I thought perhaps I will do some research on father related humor. To that end I saw this website which essentially talks about fathers, what else. I found some of what's been written as amusing and I quote some of it below:



  • "To be successful father, there's one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don't look at it for the first two years. - Ernest Hemingway.
  • The thing to remember about fathers is ... they're men. A girl has to keep it in mind: They are dragon seekers, bent on improbable rescues. Scratch any father, you find someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, believing change is a threat, like your first shoes with heels on, like your first bicycle.. - Phyllis McGinley.
  • If the relationship of father to son could really be reduced to biology, the whole earth would blaze with the glory of fathers and sons. -James Baldwin
  • My father hated radio and he could not wait for television to be invented so that he could hate that too. - Peter De Vries
  • Life was a lot simpler when what what we honored was father and mother rather than all major credit cards. - Robert Orben."
See more of these here.

To my partner,

' When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee." - Angel Abrea'


And to all the cool Dads in the world, you know who you are ,


H a p p y F a t h e r s D a y !

Cheers!

Living Money

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
