    Water Bill

    my wife's house you have to bore for water, there is no water supplied
  5. A bit of history, it was 75 years today that the battle of Guadalcanal started.
  6. when does Iceland get that warm to wear bikinis?
  7. If people accepted the truth it would not be necessary to discuss modern history.
  8. get your facts correct, Japan never got to Port Moresby their ground offense was stopped on the Kokoka trail in the Owen Stanley Ranges by Australian troops and their sea attack never happened with the battle of Coral Sea. they wanted Poet Moresby as a base not to advance into Australia, but to go into the small pacific countries they has their eyes on. Port Moresby had a full length runway. http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2002/05/31/1022569832145.html
  9. never was the intention of japan to take over Australia, its supply lines were too stretched, japan intention was take over the small countries that are between Australia and the US effectively isolating Australia from the US thus prohibiting the US from using northern Australis as a springboard back into Asia. the US intervened in Guadalcanal and was a lead in the battle of Coral Sea to stop Japan implementing their plan
  10. Us will only come to Australia's defence not because of an obligation but it only in an US interest
  11. don't worry Australian's politicians say Australia will be hit; i suspect this will apply in every country in Asia.
  12. the boss of San Mig often plays polo at Mudgee in NSW, Australia, he owns a farm there and while he is there drives his own car without any bodyguards, different to Manila.
  13. Hope the Philippines military has done its homework as Philippines will be impartial and China is metric.
  14. my boss's Merc was stolen at his Hong Kong office and probably sent to China to be re-birthed. He wasn't upset about the car as it was covered by insurance. He was upset losing his golf clubs which were in the boot.
  15. Man in casino attack was heavy gambler http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/902720/man-in-casino-attack-was-heavy-gambler
  16. was it a terrorist attack or is the government calling a robbery gone wrong to hush it up?
  17. BBC says it is a robbery gone bad http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-40123389
  18. the Australian Government in their travel advice call it a security incident not a terrorist attack Latest update: There are reports of a major security incident at the Resorts World Hotel in Manila, near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Avoid the area and follow the advice of local authorities. Some flights have been redirected from Ninoy Aquino International Airport, contact your airline or tour provider for latest information on flight disruptions. The deterioration in security in Mindanao has resulted in a more volatile security environment in the Philippines. Travellers are reminded of the high threat of terrorist attack in the Philippines, including Manila. Exercise heightened caution at this time. Be vigilant about your surrounds. Monitor the media for information that may impact on your security. Follow local authorities’ advice. The level of this advice has not changed. We continue to advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in the Philippines overall. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country.
