Brian T. Shirley BTS on the road: A view from Japan This was an important step for my career as a stand‐ up comedian and an incredible opportunity to visit a foreign land. Here's a look at my glimpse into Japan and the Marine camps I visited. What a wonderful, yet exhaus ng experience, as you will see. Ge ng to Camp Fuji, Japan, from Charleston, South Carolina, was no picnic, but that's how world travel is. I le Charleston around noon on Saturday, got to Chicago a li le over two hours later, then had a three hour layover. A er that, I boarded a huge jetliner for Tokyo which was a twelve hour flight. During the flight we had two meals. I no ced a er the first meal, everyone closed the windows and se led down to sleep or watch movies. I watched a few movies, played some solitaire and tried to sleep as much as possible. I'm guessing about eight or so hours in, we had our second meal, more of a breakfast. The lights had come on a li le before this and it was now ge ng dark outside; it had been light almost the whole trip as it seemed we were chasing the sun.

Did you know?

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination and hard work. -Colin Powell http://www.brainyquote.com

Something I also experienced on this flight was the warm, moist washcloths the flight a endants handed out twice during the trip. I took one the first me not knowing what to do and watched the other folks use them to wipe their faces and backs of their necks, so I did the same. A er we landed, I was not sure what to do a er ge ng through customs. Who would pick me up? Did I have to call the base? My first flight had been delayed which changed my arrival me. I walked around the entrance to the airport looking for someone with a sign that said "Brian T Shirley," or maybe just someone looking like they were wai ng to pick someone up. Then I spo ed some phones and headed towards them. I stopped to get a sip of water at a fountain and was approached by an Asian gentleman with a clipboard in his hand. He said, with an accent, "Excuse me, are you comedian?" and pointed at my picture on the flier he had on the clipboard. Wow, what a relief! The headlining comedian I was working with, Jackie Fabulous, was there as well. She had arrived a few hours earlier. The young man took us to the transport van and we

headed for Camp Fuji which took another three hours. It was a long trip and already 11:30 p.m. Japan me, Sunday.

Cancer: Outcome based studies

I have read many facts and opinions when it comes to cancer and its many supposed “cures” around the world, and I feel we are the most blessed community in the na on in this regard ‐ all due to the existence of Century Wellness Clinic. The Clinic is in the process of comple ng an outcome based pa ent study of 1,000 pa ents diagnosed with Stage IV adult cancers. The outcome based study is a prospec ve study and will con nue un l the first 500 pa ents reach the 5 year mark. Dr. Forsythe’s survivorship rate is 64% at 58 months with all adult cancers. He is convinced the results will surpass the 5 year results of conven onal oncology reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, 2004 as 2.1% survivorship, retrospec ve. Dr. James Forsythe, MD, HMD uses integra ve cancer treatment which combines allopathic and complementary cancer care therapy. The Forsythe Immune Protocol ™ and The Forsythe Lite IPT Protocol ™ uses "low dose" chemotherapy plus Insulin Poten a on Therapy (IPT) with genomic tes ng on whole blood, plus other integra ve methods of cancer treatment. Over the past 38 years, with his wife, Earlene Forsythe, APRN, by his side, the doctor's cancer study outcomes have truly been amazing. The facts support the statements I am making about Century Wellness Clinic, and the doctor, based on the results to date. Dr. James Forsythe is also a world renown writer and lecturer. Dr. Forsythe has authored many books regarding all types of medical condi ons and treatments, but is best known for wri ng the na onal protocol for Age Related Humane Growth Hormone Deficiency, as well as his leading edge treatment of all adult cancers. My personal favorite is, “Take Control of Your Cancer”. His latest book, “Stoned‐The Truth about Medical Marijuana and Hemp Oil In the Treatment of Cancer”, both can be purchased in most leading book stores as well as amazon.com.

awake. I walked up to the PX a er seven and got some snacks, then I checked emails and laid down again around nine. Our first show was that night and I wanted to be well rested. We arrived at the club around 5:30 p.m., ate some dinner and hung out before the show at 7 p. m. Everyone was nice and thanked us for coming to entertain the troops. That night, we performed in front of 50‐60 Marines, mostly young men aged 19‐24. I believe the oldest may have been a man in his thir es. There were very few women there as the base was made up of about 96% males. We had a meet‐n‐greet a er the show with some of the audience and then headed back to our rooms. Sleep came pre y quickly and that was good as we had to muster in the lobby the following morning to leave for our next base. The sun started its rise early around five‐thirty as I could see the light through the sides of my window curtains. I dozed in and out un l around seven‐thirty and prepared for my 8:45 a.m. departure. I looked out of my hotel window one last me at the great snow‐peaked mountain and wondered if I would ever gaze upon its magnificence ever again. Either way, I was happy to be here in the first place. Jackie and I waited in the lobby for a few minutes and our very punctual transporta on showed up. They were extremely nice and although our driver spoke very li le English, he made us feel right at ease. We drove two hours to the airport and I signed a headshot photo for the driver as we said goodbye. It made him very happy and warmed my heart to know I could make him feel good. Our layover at the Haneda Airport was two hours with a two‐hour flight to the Naha Airport on Okinawa. Our point of

contact there was Jennifer, a very sweet, blonde lady married to an Airman who is sta oned nearby. Jennifer is the MCCS Entertainment Coordinator and the first American with whom we had been in contact since our arrival. She was very enthusias c about her job and got us checked in and se led at The West Pac Inn on Camp Foster, our home for the rest of the tour. Jennifer would pick us up each evening and take us to the camps where we performed. This first show on Okinawa was right there at Foster. When we got to our hotels a er the day of travel, we had two hours down me and then off to the show. The Enlisted Club there was very nice and we had a wonderful dinner. The audience made their way in as we ate and almost completely filled the club. There were about a hundred Marine and Marine spouses/dates, and they really enjoyed the show. We met some of them a erwards and posed for pictures with them, then le the club for the five‐minute drive back to our rooms. I went to bed shortly therea er. Now that I've had some me to rest and reflect on the trip so far, I feel thankful. I am thankful that I'm able to do this and thankful for these young men and women who are serving their country. In the end, this trip is all about them. They deserve the best and they also need us to bring them the gi of joy. It can't be easy in a foreign land away from your families and conforming to the military way of life. Next we met in the lobby at 4:30 in the a ernoon for Camp Schwab. The club is called Beachhead and it's about an hour’s drive from where we stayed. This was the smallest club thus far and there were about 30 or so Marines in a endance. One of the club managers told me it was always hard to plan an event because you never knew when there was an exercise that took the Marines away from the base early in the morning. Also, this base has a small amount Continued on page 6

“Walk the Turtle”

Mike Aloia

It is what we are given; it is a precious gi many search to find the source and the meaning. Truth of origina on emerges from the stars within our vast universe. A re na of an all‐seeing eye of God is taught by genera ons, a focus on a journey of unknown roads winding through a maze of emo ons we all must face. To have vision and insight of why we are held cap ve on this spinning sphere, to gaze into the darkness and see a glimmer of light deep into an abyss of the infinite. Tapping into the imagina on and exploring our passions of crea veness, we rise above all obstacles by summoning our inner strengths of determina on and adapta ons. We evolve our minds and awaken our spirit as the soul is guided by the senses we posses by being human, many are compassionate as some show empathy, a decree of love gives us unity. By the connec ons of mind, body, and soul, our hearts pump the lifeblood through our veins, flesh and bone; we give our expressions and opinions based upon our beliefs and understandings.

Embrace our life of humility as we are in tune with a frequency of posi ve energies. Our free will is what allows us to receive the promise of hope, peace, and happiness; respect of self is our responsibility to maintain our integrity, to follow our dreams is our obliga on to change.

Blue Note Cafe´

Hi, this is Bobby Joe welcoming you to The Blue Note Café which is a part of Chillin’ with Bobby Joe, a live broadcasted Internet program. The Blue Note Café column gives sugges ons on a ending local musical performance events, performers and venues here in northern Nevada and surrounding areas. For those of you who may not know me, I am a professional harmonica player and instructor with interna onally published books, videos and DVDs on harmonica instruc on who has been a part of the northern Nevada music and entertainment scene for the last 15 years.

They are open Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. This Diamond in the Rough will take you back 100 years to when Sparks was being developed through the help and services of the railroad.

They also provide instruc onal classes on a number of subjects, so give them a shout at 775‐355‐1144 or email kelly@sparksmuseum.org, You’ll be glad you did! Well, thanks again for taking the me to hang out with me, and next me we’ll take a look at a fairly new restaurant/speakeasy called The Bridge located in Reno!

I must say you can really feel the bonds that have been built between these young men, and it's a testament to our military's training. It's also a testament to these people who choose to serve.

This somewhat gloomy weather, coupled with ge ng some much needed rest kept me in my room for the first few days. I tried to do some filming for my "BTS On The Road" web series, but it was so humid outside my video camera lens fogged up. I also had to be careful about what I filmed as it was a military installa on. I wanted to get to know our POC (Point of Contact) a li le before filming at the club, so I decided to try to film at Thursday's club. Thursday arrived and we were scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. lobby call for a 10‐minute drive to Camp Furtenma and a club called Thirsty's. Thirsty's was thirsty for some comedy! It was a very nice club that had a solid restaurant on one end with a stage next to it, a bar in the middle, and pool tables with a karaoke lounge on the other

end. The stage was well‐lit, the Marines were packed in ght, and the show was HOT!! They were a great crowd and a lot of fun‐‐this Marine Air Base (not a Camp per se) boasted a li le more of a mix when it came to the women vs. men ra o. It was also our midpoint and I could tell we were star ng to jell as comedians on this tour. Audiences seemed to be ge ng stronger as the week progressed. We hung out for a while a er the show talking with some of the troops, taking pictures and bonding with them, then it was me to get back. Jennifer, our very accommoda ng host, drove us back to the hotel. Friday morning the sun broke and I had a chance to walk around the base. The walk to the PX was alright, the walk back was tough. Our hotel was situated on a hill, and I huffed it back thanking God that I had started walking around my neighborhood a few months prior.

Ken Roberts Fixed Income Investment Strategies Explained The US dollar is very strong right now relative to other global currencies. That makes foreign travel more affordable and has made living overseas even more popular. There has been a strong trend in recent years for American retirees to live abroad in order to have a lower cost of living and stretch those retirement dollars. I’ve personally worked with clients who have chosen to retire in places like Thailand, the Philippines and Mexico. I had one client who spent two months of the year snow skiing at Lake Tahoe and the other ten months living on the beach in Thailand. He told me that he spent less in Thailand in ten months than he did skiing for two months in the Tahoe area. I worked with another client who moved to the Philippines when he retired and purchased a beachfront condominium for about $40,000 and lived on about $20 per day after his fixed expenses were paid. Mexico has also been a popular destination for US retirees. Several years ago, foreigners were not allowed to own property in the so-called “restricted zone” which included areas

near the border and coastline. Apparently, now it is possible for foreigners to own coastal property through the use of a trust or a Mexican based corporation. I’m not an expert on Mexican real estate law, so I would definitely suggest consulting an expert if you’re considering making a purchase there. Thailand also has rules on foreign ownership of residential property. The way their rules work is that foreigners can own condominiums as long as the building ownership is at least 51% Thai. If that requirement is met, the other 49% of the units can be sold to foreigners. I glanced at some internet listings of Thai condos and found studios with a pool, 200 meters from the beach starting at about $27,000. There were several one bedroom condos listed in the $40,000 range. That’s a real bargain by US standards. A recent article in Forbes magazine listed the best places to retire abroad and their top ten were, in this order; Ecuador, Panama, Mexico, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Malta, Spain, Colombia, Portugal and Thailand. They considered quite a bit of different data that included weather and cost of living. Continued on next page

U.S. News & World Report ran an article about a year ago titled,”9 Affordable Places to Retire Overseas”. They looked at specific cities in foreign jurisdictions and calculated a monthly budget for the cost of living in those cities. The average monthly cost of living for the nine cities was $1,116. Their article included locations in Belize, France, Thailand, Philippines, Nicaragua, Malaysia, Ecuador, Vietnam and Ireland. Living abroad is one way that retirees can really stretch a tight budget and live the lifestyle they’d like. If you don’t like the idea of living abroad full time, maybe buying your second home, the beach house in a foreign country. might make sense.
