Ideas, Comments, Exaggerations, Delusions, Rants, Inspirations, and Secrets. I like to show the heavenly in the ordinary. But sometimes, to echo George Orwell, "I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing." Sometimes.

Diogenes Villanueva Baena, Aug 19, 1927 - June 16, 2011
Diogenes "Diony" Villanueva Baena
Loving husband to the late Belen Calumpang Montesa,
Father to Diogenes, Jr (Mary), Silverio, Imelda (Frederic), Federico (Evelyn), and Araceli (Neil)
Grandfather to Ben, Tomas, Liam, Chloe, Adrien, Mia, Anton, Alexander, and Isabelle
Godfather to scores of godchildren
Throughout his 50-year partnership and marriage to Belen, his long career as an engineer at Central Azucarera de Bais, his one-time record of 20 consecutive years as a Bais councillor, as well as his ventures in farming and small business, Diony touched and impacted on the lives of countless number of people.
Along with Belen, their decision to immigrate to Canada at his age of 50, forsaking the comfortable Baisanon life to start a new life in a new country, is a decision that his children and grandchildren will forever be grateful!
