I know ! I know ! This is a tasteless joke. It was just too good to resist.

Wait ! There’s more ! The photo below shows the son of Philippines’ former dictator Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda Marcos, killer and thief duo, and said son is now running for President, believe it or not. My parents are freaking out.


About Ukraine:

I have not watched the news since 2 weeks ago. I can’t stand this feeling of helplessness anymore. Out of sight, out of mind.

I’ve also become a little bit paranoid. The computer system of the dairy company where I work had been hacked, big time. We didn’t get anything done for 5 days. The first thing that came to my mind was a Cyber Attack. Good thing we managed to ship out our products to Taiwan and South Korea just before the hacking. Our milk exports to these 2 countries are our bread and butter. We export our products thru COSTCO’s Kirkland brand. And , oh yeah, we also produce for Walmart ( Great Value, their store brand ) , Target, and other big supermarkets. Not producing anything for 5 days is quite a big loss to the company. Now, we’re working overtime…. no days off for me.

My computer was hacked, too, using my Facebook account. Warning ! ! Don’t buy anything online thru Facebook ! I reported this to my credit card company. My card was frozen for 2 weeks , then the company sent me a new card. Something else happened, and I think it was a dry run for a future scam. I received an Amazon Prime package last week. The sender was the daughter of my first cousin who lives in the Philippines. I video called my cousin , and showed her the package with her daughter’s name on it. She got scared. Well, me too. I’m sure the scammer randomly picked off her name from my Facebook list of Friends. Guess what’s in the box. ….. A strainer/sieve and 2 plastic clothes cover, like the one used by Dry cleaner shops. The heck ! I also reported it to Amazon and my credit company. Good thing the Amazon package wasn’t charged on my credit card. I informed the credit company ( Fraud department ) that I wouldn’t be using my credit card for at least 6 months, except for 2 automatic payments to Netflix and Comcast.

Another warning ! ! Majority of online scammers speak with a very particular accent. I don’t want to offend a certain group of people , so I won’t tell you which accent I’m talking about. Some scammers use emails , but these online scammers are more nefarious and relentless.

Forewarned is forearmed.

This is all for now.

Such aggravation…. it doesn’t make sense.

Putin is destroying Ukraine with impunity. All he does is threaten the world with nuclear war, and that’s it. Everybody folds up. I understand it’s extremely risky and dangerous to call Putin’s bluff because this man is evil personified….. a madman of the first order…. a criminal. So, what can the world do? Sending water, food and nappies won’t help Ukranians win the war. They need the tools to block Russian advance … rocket launchers and advance military weaponry. But then, NATO doesn’t even want to stop importation of Russian oil and gas. I have no more words to describe the feelings I have right now.

But this quote from Churchill ( although not verified if he really said this) just about sums up nicely and clearly muddled thoughts that are swirling on my mind. By the way, this quote is from Lydia Ecklund’s website , , titled Putin’s Empty Peace negotiations. Thank you, Ms. Lydia.

Next is Taiwan, and the rest of Asia.

I don’t know if I’m going to laugh or cry.
