Just some general stuff

2012-09-13, Thursday
I was watching a programme on the History Channel – it is rare that there is real history programmes on that channel in Asia. This programme was about the Mayans and Aliens from outer space.  These so-called scientists are intent on proving that there are aliens from outer space that they do not consider that maybe these people were intelligent enough to do the things we now find left behind.

My blood pressure seems to be staying on the low side and I shall be able to see a doctor next month (November). And, sometime this month, I have to go to the Bureau of Immigration in Manila. That costs me about $50 for the trip, plus 12 hours in travel time.

There have been lots of rain and thunderstorms. Perhaps we are coming to the end of those storms as the earth tilts and the Northern Hemisphere moves away from the sun. When the Northern Hemisphere is close to the sun, there are many storms, like typhoons or hurricanes.  Today there is some sun, but still lots of clouds, which may mean rain later.

I did not get to see any of the Memorials about the 911 attacks because they were held during the late night and very early morning here. Since I do not sleep well, anyway, I was not going to wake myself and then not be able to sleep the rest of the nght.
