Ok, great job, great idea.
A corner for Bacongnons to exercise their freedom of speech.
Reminder: such freedom is not limited to what is politically correct nor limited to traditional norms.

My beloved and respected cababanua na taga Bacon.
Our town has just been devastated by typhoon Melenyo. Majority of the houses have been damaged, some severely. Many people's livelihood vanished with the typhhon specially those dependent on farm produce. Knowing that Bacongnons are known for compassion, I am appealing to everyone to send some financial aid to anyone you know, perhaps old friends, old neighbors,relatives, old classmates. Just do it please. thank you. Be assured that your kindness will be most appreciated.

Hello to all! I would like to contribute some pictures of Bacon. Please let me know how. Thanks!

Ah,"Tulong Gapo"....I hope nobody has spoiled it yet in considerable proportions. Bacon is not Bacon without "Tulong Gapo" and the precious, precious church of old that brought all cababanua together. I learned that in some ways they are no longer the same, i.e, some mining affected certain areas and habitat; the aesthetics of an old church being spoiled because of some walls deemed to be the only solution to some "wandering" flock.

I just hope that our cababanua or all of those who are involved in the approval of such business ventures are reminded of the snares of misguided geopolitics....and that of our church, why not some collaborative input from the flock that supports it? Everybody has a right to have a voice. Has every resident been requested to join in the effort to address the issue? I also believe that in order for the flock to stay on course, a certain understanding, diplomacy and analysis of the root of such disturbing habit of "wandering" be in the agenda of those in charge in the diocese. The latter I think should be the first to tackle.

Shifting to another topic, may I suggest that different pictures of Bacon be posted, say, monthly? Weekly would even be better!

Thanks for publishing the picture of my childhood's favorite place. Tolong-gapo beach is Bacon.

Thanks for volunteering.
Just email the pictures to my personal email address. Do it one or two at a time to make sure that it goes through.

I prefer pictures of some places in Bacon, don't forget to indicate where they are.
I appreciate the effort.
Take care & regards to your Mom.

I received an appeal for donation to an Indigent Kids foundation headed by a certain Amado Manduriao,Jr. of Burabod, Bacon, Sorsogon, a twice retired school principal.
May I know more info about this?

Rene of California said...

Indigent Kids is a limited charitable foundation. It assists about 35 very indigent kids with school supplies, financial aid, goods on school opening. However, in December, the recepients are expanded to as many kids as possible sometimes as many as 100, dependent on the funds raised.
Amado Manduriao, Jr. is a 74 year old bachelor, twice retired school Principal, a community,religious leader in Bacon.

I too am a fellow Dellosa...i just wanted to know if anyone has traced the Dellosa name, as far as I know it goes all the way to Italy. Anyway Bacon is the birthplace of my late Grandfather, Norberto Dellosa Snr. I would have loved to have visited Bacon on my last trip to the Philippines in Feb 06. Thank you for the website Karl.

I really look forward to visiting Bacon, Sorsogon someday, along with meeting all of Judy's family. I cannot express in words how beautful and wonderful she is; when you see us together you will understand just how close we are and why we make such a good couple. She is one of a kind and I am truly blessed to have her in my life. I will tell her to write you soon. Take care and God bless.
