ATN - a non-prescription drug
Whenever I feel homesick and there's nobody
around to talk to, I always run to and take refuge on my Ang Tanjayanon
Newsletter files. Reading them is therapeutic. So to those
in similar situation, I recommend ATN -A Therapeutic Newsletter.

Greetings from England
Bradd, thru the pages of our newsletter,
I send my loving greetings to the Tanjayaonons in America, Canada and all
over the world. I am your fellow- Tanjayanon now living here in England.
Fate and destiny have been kind to us, but I know we will always miss being
home where we spent the glorious happy days of our youth. Tanjay
and its beautiful people will
always have a special place in my heart.
(Ed's note: Ms Williams, the former Mariley T. Pao,
writes that she used to live in Opao and is the daughter of Felicisimo
Pao and Mercedes Torres. She has two lovely daughters and is married
to a "very, very wonderfully handsome English gentleman".)

gar det? Jeg elsker deg!
Hi, my name is Anicena
Mickkelsen, the former Annie Guevarra. I am the daugher of Mr and
Mrs Mateo Guevara of Tugas, Tanjay. I graduated hi-school from East
Negros Institute in 1970. Well, my hi-school days were really, really fantastic.
We ate guavas with vinegar during vacant time, ate dinoldog sa ka Aring,
and tried to learn how to dance in the house of Inday Djotay and the music
was "Magic Woman"!!! I miss Tanjay. I miss my classmates. Sally
Gadingan, Liza Fernandez, Rheza Calumpang, Stella Ramirez,
Inday Djotay: Please write me.
Jeg savne deg,

I was doing the usual household
chores and going over disposable stuff when I came across the September
1997 issue of the Ang Tanjayanon Newsletter. I knew I had read
it already so I just gook a glimpse of it. Then I started reading,
and before I knew it I read it from cover to cover. Indeed, our newsletter
is a very entertaining and interesting publication. Time
doesn't dim its "wonderfulness". It is unique and
and thanks to you Braddock, Danny and Perla. Like our ATN,
you too are unique and ever young (and may need a second look
before being disposed of, he, he, he.)

a daughter of our erstwhile beloved Chief of Police
of Tanjay, is a dedicated educator, and is happily
married to Harold Anderson, a dashing debonair. Their only son Cory,
many friends say, has the good looks of his dad and the personality, drive
and frankness and honesty of a Zosa.)
It is with profound joy and sincere
gratitude that I am able to convey my most sincere greetings to our
fellow Tanjayanons. I have been away for a long time now and I am
excited to be in contact once again with my classmates, friends, and loved
ones. Wherever we are dili gyud mawala ang atong pagka-Tanjayanon.
I'm the daughter
of anhing Venus Pilas Torres ug ni anhing Luciana Baroy Pao nga nagapoyo
kaniadto dool sa baylihan sa Opao,Tanjay. I will always remember the time,
nga sa dalagita pa ako, nakapuyo ako didto sa Palanas. Among my acquaintances
were the handsome Ricky Teves, Eddie Javier, Orlando Señeris. Ipangumusta
na lang ko kanila. Hope they are happy and are in the best of health.
(Ed's note: We relayed the message to Ricky Teves,
who now lives here in Montebello. Primero, mikunot ang iyang
agtang, unya mipahiyum nga mora'g may bo-ut ipasabut, dayong kageke ug
katawa nga may diutayng ka-ulaw. Yes, Ricky used to be one of the
fans of Cristina during his Max Alvarado days.)
It is with deep regrets
that I write this. I am sorry but once again I wasted precious time
reading the Ang Tanjayanon Newsletter. I read it cover to cover and
did not find anything worth my time. There is no lesson we get from
it. No interesting news. Nothing positive.
You're wasting your time. The money you spend in publishing
this newsletter, could be better put to use if it were sent to the Philippines
to help our poor suffering people. Dear Editors, the Ang Tanjayanon
newsletter is garbage, and is good only for wrapping fish or the

From the North Pole(?)
I am a Tanjayanon working
in a fish cannery here in Alaska. I am a bachelor and very lonely.
I hope and wish some of our eligible Tanjayanons will write me. My
only contact with our hometown is www.tanjay.org. I enjoy reading
the past issues of the Ang Tanjayanon Newsletter on the web. As of now
that is my best lingaw-lingaw. A million thanks to Mr
Carino, Mr Reyes, Mr Gil and Mr. Braddock, the
"inventor" of Tambal sa Kamingaw. Sir, you hit
the nail right on the head. For your nextedition,
I shall send you some "cold" jokes from the North Pole.
