The Ubiquitous Mailbox

I find it difficult to think of a household without a mailbox. Be in the city or far flung areas, there it is fronting residence or located at the corner of the property. For as long as we have mail correspondence and magazine subscriptions, we will need this utility box and its importance is not diminished even in this computer age. There will always be mailboxes in residences and in commercial establishments as well. And we will always be visiting the mailboxes to check and collect mail and magazine deliveries. If so isn’t it about time to afford our mailboxes a little importance? In this age of identify thief and high incidence of thievery, it may be wise to consider to replacing our old mailboxes with more secure but affordable mailboxes consistent with the valuables that are expected to be deposited and temporarily stored in them.

Those building their new homes or commercial buildings particularly should consider mailboxes in their master plan. What type and where to locate the ma…


The great exploits of the world’s top pound for pound boxer Manny Pacquiao a top the ring certainly boosted the stock of the Filipino (Pinoy) boxers in the world boxing arena particularly among Pinoy’s boxing fans. This appears to rub on the Filipino Boxers. The Pinoy boxers themselves exude pride and confidence whenever they are in a fight as was the case of the four boxers taking on separate foes the past weekend. The result however was not something to crow about though to the credit of the four boxers they gave their all. Of the four only two emerged victorious.

In July 11, 2010, three Pinoy pugs Flash Nonito Donaire, Eden Sonsona and Bernabe Conception took on world rated foes in Puerto Rico. Only Nonito Donaire got to celebrate. Nonito Donaire stopped Hernan Marquez of Mexico in the ninth round retaining his title – WBA Interim Super Flyweight Champion. Nonito Donaire proved too classy, elusive and powerful knocking down Marquez twice with precision and powerful shots. His two ot…


Filipinos again have a reason to celebrate- the victory of Francisco “Django” Bustamante at the recent 2010 World Pool Championship held in Doha, Qatar. As reported in the major newspapers, Bustamante downed Kuo Po-cheng of Chinese Taipeh in the final match at a score of 13-7 finally capturing the crown which eluded him for years. For his effort, Bustamante pocketed the top prize of $ 36, 000.

The victory of Bustamante once again proved the dominance of Pinoys in the sport of Billiard. Bustamante joins four other earlier World Pool titlists- Efren Reyes, Ronnie Alcano, Alex Pagulayan and Rubilen Amit- the women’s 10-ball titlist.

Apparently, Billiard is a sport where height is not might. Filipinos are not known for height. Bustamante, Reyes, Pagulayan, Amit and many other Filipino world class cue artists are not tall players. Top billiard players from other countries like Ralf Souquet and Mika Immonen are not tall either.
