Garage Door

The boss walked into the office one morning not knowing his zipper was down and his fly area wide open. His assistant walked up to him and said, 'This morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?' The boss told her he knew he'd closed the garage door, and walked into his office puzzled by the question.

As he finished his paperwork, he suddenly noticed his fly was open, and zipped it up. He then understood his assistant's question about his 'garage door.'

He headed out for a cup of coffee and paused by her desk to ask, 'When my garage door was open, did you see my Hummer parked in there?' She smiled and said, 'No, I didn't. All I saw was an old mini van with two flat tires..


An elderly gentleman....

Had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%

The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect.. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'

The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet.

I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'


Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains.

I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'

Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'

'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'

'Yep.. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'


An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly.'

The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'

The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love?

You know.... The one that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?'

'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'


Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.

After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.

'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown..'


Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things.. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..

Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure..'

'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.

'No, I can remember it.'

'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so not to forget it?'

He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'

'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.

Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!' Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs..

She stares at the plate for a moment. 'Where's my toast ?'


A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: 'So I hear you're getting married?' 'Yep!'

'Do I know her?' 'Nope!'

'This woman, is she good looking?' 'Not really.'

'Is she a good cook?' 'Naw, she can't cook too well..'

'Does she have lots of money?' 'Nope! Poor as a church mouse.'

'Well, then, is she good in bed?' 'I don't know.'

'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?' 'Because she can still drive!'


Three old guys are out walking.

First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?'

Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!'

Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go get a beer..'


Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.

A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'

Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''

The doctor said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'


One more. . ..!

A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool..

After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.

The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'

'No,' he replied, 'Arthritis.'

Significance of CLASS 1970 LOGO

Posted by The Administrator on February 6, 2010 at 1:29 AM Comments comments (1)

The historical impact of the symbols in the logo:

* the MAIN BUILDING signifies our home where we first got our secondary education that leads us to what we are now;

* the LOCOMOTIVE is a reminiscence of our activities when we were in our high school days, our camaraderie, our friendship and more importantly the memoirs left by our classmates and schoolmates like Nick Catalan, Oscar Tan, Lux Gaylo, Jose Alayon, Asher Villarias, who were already passed away, among others; 

* the SUGARCANE is a produce which La Carlota is known of  nationwide or even globally (La Carlota nga tubo); and

* the CIRCLE that encloses all those momentous symbols, purports the never-ending commitment of CLASS 1970 Alumni to be handed down from our generation to our children's generation, to their children's children, and so on and so forth!


This LOGO is designed by Joemar Sanchez as per humble request of Gilbor Camporazo. Joemar's service is "gratis et amores" for he felt at home with this class 70. Gil was able to know him when his membership was accidentally deleted from this site. GiI searched the web to find him. And fortunately, he was able to track down from his website that he's a graphic artist. So GiI took the opportunity to avail of his effort, time and skills he could muster to come up with this LOGO. And the rest is a history. Muchos gracias, Joemar. Long live.... our friend!

General Homecoming - Dec. 22, 2007

Posted by The Administrator on December 25, 2009 at 10:08 AM Comments comments (6)

La Carlota High School General Homecoming

Dec. 22, 2007 - “Saya at Parangal ng Alumni” was the adopted theme for the 60th Founding Anniversary and Grand Homecoming of La Carlota City High School/Doña Hortencia Salas Benedicto National High School. This momentous gathering was held for two days that kicked off December 22, 2007

“This is a big event since I was here 15 years ago,” said Class 1973 alumnus, Dr. Jane Regner-Ramiro as the guest speaker. She was grateful to her Alma Mater, La Carlota High School which nurtured the same passion, the academic excellence through out her existence. She realized with that mission, the school has produced thousands of graduates who had been molded “to be great people.” And lot of them became leaders who had shown their responsibility to survive through hard work, education, and discipline, she further pointed out.


     “With power comes great responsibility,” she quoted a line from the popular Spiderman movie. As an alumnus she challenged everyone to come up with a realistic project to further enhance the present school's structure. In closing she thanked those teachers who imparted their precious gifts of knowledge. And on the other hand she urged the youth “to carry the flag of excellence in education” in order for them to succeed and glorify our Master.

Mr. Denny Castañeda, this year's high school principal delivered his welcome address. He said in this momentous gathering of alumni of La Carlota High School is considered to be the best opportune time “to pursue our dreams” for our Alma Mater.


    While La Carlota Sangguniang member and chairman on Education Jackie Jalandoni expressed in his talk that those who were gone from afar after graduation are here “to show their love and loyalty” to their Alma Mater and “to renew their bond of friendship” among themselves when they were here several years ago.


    Meanwhile the present Alumni president, Atty. Rex G. Rojo told that the alumni are the living witnesses of the school's existence. “And this calls for a celebration,” he concluded.


    On their part a handful of Class 1970 spent their time to get back to their alma mater, La Carlota City High School after 38 long years of absence.


    The IV – I class alumni was by led the class 70. They converged at one of the rooms in the extension building along the Locsin-Ledesma Street. Before they took their lunch a one-minute prayer was offered for the eternal repose of their classmates and schoolmates who were already dead like Nick Catalan, Oscar Tan, Asher Villarias, among others.


    Foods, drinks and deserts were more than enough to satisfy everyone's tummy. Although Leo Valdez, Josette Lim-Riley, Melba Lanzar-Debulgado, Nehemia Espinosa, Wilfredo Inocencio, Jessica Atiles were not present because they were working abroad but yet they had supported the food provisions of the said gathering aside from a measly financial contribution of those who participated for the souvenir T-shirts.


    The fun began when some selected seniors of the said class presented a cha-cha dance number in the afternoon opening program at the covered court of the said high school campus just at the back of controversial Doña Hortencia Salas Benedicto building. And an instant and unrehearsed "Papaya" dance number by some of those willing class 70 alumni at the stage ensued.


    Earlier a parade to main thoroughfare of the city started off the 2-day general homecoming. The class 70 took a ride on the "magarang" wheels of some successful and well-off alumni like Jose Tionsay, Armando Famoso, Ninfa Bartolo, and Narcisa Torrefranca-Trayfalgar.


    Two (2) lechons donated by the two members of the class 70 enlivened the month-long preparation of the class who used to convene every first Sunday of the month at the facade of historical Gabaldon main building of La Carlota High School.


    This writer was able to renew his acquaintance with his buddies Jose Alayon, Edwin Blanca and Rodolfo Celestino. While his high-school sweetheart and wife, Rebecca, who was his schoolmate and graduated at the same year, was also able to be reunited with her classmates and friends.


    Ninfa Bartolo, the current class 70 president spearheaded the distribution of gifts and tokens from their generous and thoughtful classmates who found a greener pasture at abroad.


    So far on the first day only seventy (70) were in attendance as evidenced by signed attendance roll. Those present were Gaudencio Lingamen, Jr., Edwin Blanca, Felizardo Jimenez, Edgar Lacson, Rufino de Leon, Narcisa Torrefranca-Trayfalgar, Gilbor Camporazo, Rebecca Demabildo-Camporazo, Prospero Rojo, Jr., Rita Alinco, Adela Historiador, Willy Heria, Jose Tionsay, Milagros Sitchon, Leda Gatucao-Tumunong, Asuncion Roquero, Nenita Golez, Yoland Pagsuberon, Violeta Tingla, Mercedita Sia, Alicia Alolod, Delilah Javellana, Excelsa Piojo, Elma Buenafe-Droste, Nilda Figueroa, Noeme Parcon-Javellosa, Maximiana Sayosa-Navales, Julie Lorico-Balsomo, Gemma Qui-ay-Abaygar,Emma Marquiño-Magbanua, Esteleta Guillem-Tan, Zenaida Capistrano, Edna Jallorina-Soratorio, Marilyn Layos-Ortiz.
