“I'd rather regret the things that I have done than the things that I have not.”
― Lucille Ball


This page contains an overview of the updates and mergers that have been implemented/installed for this site since its commencement.

May 30, 2009

Initial site setup as a Blog and starting our learning cycle, during our stay in Thailand.

October 2010

A separate Blog initiated to post the progress of our house building project.

October, 2012

Thailand Blog, Philippines Blog and House building Blog merged into one Blog.

Mid 2014

The Pages option added to change the style of the Blog and give it the appearance of a full blown Site. 

Mid January, 2015

"Print Friendly" button added to enable readers to select the Post text only for printing or copying.

February 5, 2015

The Blog/Site user interface was changed from static/classic view to the new Dynamic Views style of Google's blogger. It gives you the opportunity to select from seven new ways to experience a Blog/Site. 

February 9, 2015

Reverted back to blogger's Classic style, as Dynamic Views style does not support some classic functions such as "Contact me", Also changed the previous dull classic template in a modern style and increased the viewing width, which is now 900 pixels for the posts and 300 for the side column.

First two weeks of February, 2015

These two weeks where used to restructure the navigation options of this site and to review the post labels currently used. We felt that the labels used were not always very well chosen, sometimes ambiguous and a bit messy.

Mid February 2015 

We now have the following label groups in the right navigation column: Timeline, Category, Paperwork, Construction and Geography. In addition there is a Search field added and the local Philippine time is displayed. A new page tab is added to explain the new navigation options with some examples.

February 21, 2015

AdSense advertising has been activated. We will give some details on this new project on our blog in a few weeks or months depending on how fast we get relevant results, as this might be interesting for other bloggers as well.

February 23, 2015

Split off some text from the Home page and moved it to a new page called Updates (this page), as this info is not relevant for Home page readers.

May 6, 2015

Added a Download tab, initially to share some Affidavits I produced, later I might add Application Forms, Manuals & Instructions, Designs, etc..

December 9, 2016

As of this date I suspend this blog. For more info go to my last post.
