Welcome to My Site

If this is your first visit, welcome! This site is devoted to my life experiences as a Filipino-American who immigrated from the Philippines to the United States in 1960. I came to the US as a graduate student when I was 26 years old. I am now in my early-80's and thanks God for his blessings, I have four successful and professional children and six grandchildren here in the US. My wife and I had been enjoying the snow bird lifestyle between US and Philippines after my retirement from USFDA in 2002. Please do not forget to read the latest national and International News in this site . I have also posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos in this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringing on your copyrights. Cheers!

Hell Freezes Over in Michigan



Two days ago the Arctic Vortex ( extreme historic cold temperature and wind velocity) engulfed all of the US except Southern California and Florida. One of the headlines that day that attracted my attention was Hell, Michigan Freezes Over. The headline reminded me of the article I posted in my blog a year ago listing all the unusual, bizarre and sexy names of towns and places in the United States. So where the heck is Hell Michigan? Here's what Wikipedia say:

"Hell, or Hiland Lake, is an unincorporated community in Putnam Township of Livingston County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The community is near the border with Washtenaw County, about 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. Hell is 3 miles southwest of Pinckney via Patterson Lake Road. The community is served by the Pinckney post office with ZIP Code 48169". The town has about 600 residents.

Now that we know that Hell exists, is there a Heaven in the US?

I do not think there is such a place, but there is a Paradise, California that my wife and I visited last year. There is also Heavenly Hills and Heavenly Valley, CA, Little Heaven, Delaware and Heaven Heights, MA. Unusual names, indeed!
