    I apologize for limited posting but between the internet connection and the craziest 54 hours on the island I have had on a long time, I have not had much time to wait 10 minutes for each page to load.

    In 9 hours we begin our journey back to Bacolod. In 25 hours my plane departs Manila and 13 hours later I will be collecting my empty golf bag from the luggage cart at LAX.

    I hate being here for such a short time but I got to swim with my kids and hug my wife. For those moments I am grateful.

    No need to apologize Oz. We all know that this is a short visit home, and spending time with your family is priority number one. That, and the crummy internet service must make posting the last thing on your list of priorities.

    I'm so happy that you were able to get the second batch of imigrant eggs set and can't wait to see how Bernie does with his new charges. How exciting for him and his lovely family. I bet they are going to love being the caretakers of the hatch.

    Enjoy the time you have left with your beautiful wife and children. We can hear all about your trip when you get back to the states.

    Wishing you safe travels on your return flight.

    Its 538am on Tuesday morning. Time to do a quick check on the incubators and give Bernie some final reassurance before heading out to meet the social workers regarding our adoption process.
