    Hi John, a lot of the news that gets pushed out isn't supposed to be for general reading its for people searching for specific information. E.g. Luke Isaacs who was murdered over a year ago his brother contacted me as I had more information than the British Embassy (he was murdered in the next town). Problem with WordPress is that it send the articles one after another instead of sending some to direct archieve (as they wouldnt be relevant to most people). Which is why you will get a flurry of articles e.g. 10 in one day as i try to push the ones i want in the system that aren't as relevant down the list of new articles.

    Its more to do with reference points.. a lot of the data doesnt get across to the right people.. e.g. the car crash above there is a good chance that people in the Philippines that know the couple may not even be aware of the incident. But if they Google it at least there is some data for them to find out where and what so they can look into it further. The bus crash stuff I reduced lately purely because its happening way too often and although it does get a lot of Google hits its also being aware that A. its negative and B these people have families which is why the names always follow a couple of days later and I don't show anything graphic of an individual.I would like more positive stories coming through but the problem is I need more material which I am working hard at finding. As regards sleeping patterns I have found I prefer to be up at midnight to 4am as its cooler to work so generally going to bed earlier then getting up for 4hrs before going back to bed is working fine. The problem I had before was I was getting up early and doing a full day before going to bed late then waking up during the night.. don't think I can fix the pattern as to be honest I like getting up around 11am as when I get up at 6am I am sat looking for things to do.. at 11am there is stuff I have to do..

    Lucky man. Getting up at 11. I wish i could train my body to do that. I get up at 545 in the morning to 7:00 go to bed around 8 or 9 maybe 10. I love you like a cousin or something. I been checking your page for over a year now. I think even longer about a year in a half. Hows your happiness? Can you post a new thing thats being offered in the here. Anti aging Medicine. Its really a breakthrough for the Phillipines. I got some head trauma in the Marines before in my country and these guys really helped me rebalance out my hormones in my brain http://www.a4clinic.com/

    I mean bro. You look at things from both angles and I respect that but don't you “personally” get depressed when you read that. If I was posting all of that it would make me lean towards a negative serious mindset which is unhealthy bro. You are already having some sleeping problems bro. Clear your mind for a few days and go to I recommend Apo Island. Its beautiful man its off of dumagete but if you can't go that far get on the fastcraft and hit up Alona Beach in Bohol man 2 hours away if i remember correctly. Its real cheap relaxed layed back and romantic. Nice scene bro one of my favorite places. Hows the Melatonin working?

    I find happiness everyday otherwise I would go mad..lol the key to the Philippines is separating what you can change from things that will never change and being able to accept that. Most people can't. If your finding that stuff works for you as regard hormones that's good.. Life is different for every person and being able to accept over understand is an important factor that often gets overlooked. Its like the saying “whatever makes you happy” its in relevance where people are just glad your happy yet often dont understand why.. but thats life. Its about finding happiness in a life that is often throwing up things that throw cogs in the wheel and accepting where you want to go and be.

    Analiza is my dearest sister.
    She died in a tragic accident which until now is hard to accept. Dying without saying goodbye is a torture… Whole family is coping but still missed her a lot. Anyway,,she died with her soulmate Derek. Shes happy with Derek I hope.
    Missed you a lot Anaw. Our life is not the same anymore since you’ve been gone. Love you forever.
    Lots of Love
