The e-mail address I use is email@example.com. If I send from my iPhone, it will read firstname.lastname@example.org. I haven't found a Mac tech that knows how to change that setting yet. Was at the Apple store yesterday, but they said to call tech support. I'm working on it so that it reads the same from wherever I send. Sorry for any confusion on that.
My job for Monday rescheduled to September, and then an hour later I picked up a different one . So I'll have something for you the beginning of next week.
Hi, Randy. Glad to see you're back and busy. It will be interesting to see Manny's development in the political arena. Some friends of mine just returned from their trip in Philippines. They had a blast, so much fun. One day, I'm going to come visit. I know I would enjoy myself there!
Randy, I remember reading that basketball was popular in Philippines.
What warms my heart about the Filipino people is how gentle they are to visitors. I remember watching the World Pool Championship live on the Internet between Filipino Ronnie Alcano and German Ralf Souquet. Ronnie, of course, won, but at the trophy ceremony at the end, when Ralf began to speak, he got a little choked up. He really wanted to win. The whole audience of Filipino people, which is where the WPC was held, stood up and gave him a standing ovation. It still gives me goose bumps thinking about it.
Check it out. It is so cool. Watch it when Ralf speaks at counter 2:50: 2006 WPC Finals
Randy, I used to have a hard time juggling my work with my boyfriend's professional pool career. We haven't been on the tournament trail for over 2 years now. Living out of a suitcase is not all that it's cracked up to be. There's no place like home!
Melissa is American, but she is a lady pro here with the Women's Professional Billiards Association (WPBA). The American men pros are currently not with a professional organization, but that's the topic of another thread which I'd label "Pool Politics." LOL!

It's actually more about my boyfriend, but pool was a big part of my life for a while, but it's hard to make a living in pool. He came in third place at the 2003 U.S. Open and only pocketed $10,000. Pool is more of a recreational game here in the States, as opposed to a sport like it is in the Philippines. Pool gets no respect here.
Randy, my friend Melissa Little from Denver is playing in women's Philippines 10-Ball Open this week.
Of all people, she ended up sparring with Manny, playing him two sets at One Side Billiards in Manila as she prepares for the 2009 Philippine Open, one set 10-Ball and one set 9-Ball, and she won both.
I can't wait until she returns to the States, so I can ask her about how she ended up practicing with Pacman. She took some pictures too.
Good to hear from you. When Pacman is in Vegas, he trains at my friend's boxing complex. I've got some GREAT pictures of Manny in training. I used to think Efren Reyes was King of Philippines. Now I think Manny is the King of Philippines. He is loved by all.
Hi, Randy. I am a very big fan of the Philippines, but in another arena. My BF plays pool professionally, and, of course, as most know, the Filipinos rule the pool world. Efren, Ronnie Alcano, Alex Pagulayan, and Bustie are friends of ours.
Now back to business. Page rates in my area are based on the turnaround time. They vary also depending on the region you live in. Some companies today are charging per audio minute or per audio hour, meaning for a one-hour recording, the company would charge one rate per hour or 60 times whatever the per-audio-minute rate is.
