TANJAY ASSOCIATION, USA WEBSITE
SELF-DESTRUCT ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
over 25 years, this website has served the Tanjayanons and their
friends in keeping abreast with the news about each other, both from
the home town, and from members around the world.

programs, family trees, balik-bayan trips, obituaries, announcements,
and other items of interest, by the mere clicking of the link
"tanjaycity.org" on any computer's browser.
these wizardry has been a labor of love by webmaster Iking
Cariño and various contributors such as Braddock Calumpang,
Perla Manapol, and many others, who really are the "oldtimers" of the
Tanjay Association dating back to the group's inception in 1983 in Los

everything. It was fun while it lasted.

Below are some comments from avid readers of the website.
Hi Danny and all,
I am great fan of
Tanjayanons. My son married a Tanjayanon and developed many friendships
among them in New York. I admire the various pictorials and articles
that you created, which you gave me the chance to archive in albums,
books and ebooks.
I know that you and your
editorial staff have spent all your time, efforts, finances, and energy
in creating your website, for the benefit of the members and friends.
I know that websites remain
dormant and in slow motion due to passage of time and retirement of its
I salute your website, as I
have not seen one similar in its informative nature and wide range of
coverage. I am from Daet Camarines Norte and attempted to make a website
like yours, but to no avail and lack of success.
I think it's not wise to
retire your website and wipe it out forever. It may seem that it's
inactive, but it is still useful to some Tanjayanons and friends for
its continuous presence in the cyberspace. It will be useful as
reference material for future generations of Tanjayanons. It will
continue to generate unity and togetherness of Tanjayanons, as legacy
and for posterity. There are more positive reasons to maintain it and
let it stay.
I am sure there will be some
young people who might eventually join your editorial staff to keep it
alive. Even if no one will keep it alive, just let it stay in
cyberspace to benefit mankind.

Bradicks, kumusta na man ... mo diha sa California. Ako, kami
retired na, apan dili intawon sa Tanjay nga mao untay akon plano, didto
jud sa Matangad sa yuta ni mamma, We are here in Blaine, a year
ago na atong Mayo... kay gusto man ni Mrs to be near amo only daughter
and the apos.
unsa gud ni, what's happening? I visited our website, and was
shocked! Unsa tinoud na? You guys are killing our website.
Self-destruction? Why? Hibalo ka, kanang atong tanjay
website mao ra baya gyud na intawo'y number one kalipay sa mga ingon
namong halayo sa Tanjay. Akong cuzzin sa New Zealand mao pud iya
sulti. Maayo man mo dinha kay daghan man mong taga-atò! Malingaw
man diod kami! Ginabalik-balik namo ang mga sections diha, like
mga reprints sa mga old Souvenir Programs very pretty, the Tanjay
experience thru Ramblings, the Family Trees nga nahimong reference for
those tracing relatives, ang Trivia ug labina kanang mga back issues sa
atong Newsletters nga bisan ug balik-balik na ng mga komedya nga
Tinanjay, makatawa man gyud gihapon kami! Mahimout man diod mi .....
ambi unsaon man na nimo! Ay, ambut lang ninyo! Tambal
intawon kana namo nga gimingaw sa atò.
Seriously, bitaw, is the tanjay website really in its deathbed,
counting the days when it self-destructs, dies, and be lost forever
.... without saying (sigh!) a goodbye? Why? Is not there a
way for our Tanjay Association and the Tanjayanons to prevent its
the most painful goodbyes are those that are not said, nor explained.

Happily, it seems that the Tanjay Website will not
disappear Sept 30, 2018 when the hosting funds will run out. Other
members have come to the rescue, for another year. See boxes
above. So what you see on "tanjaycity.org"
will remain, and though the front page may seem dormant, the various
links will change as updates are effected.
