And Now I Know -- Laundry

Gurrr........another day with electricity outage. Again, home laundry is not happening. So I discovered a nice full service laundry guy located behind Boquete police station. This place does a fast turn around of wash/dry and fold at a reasonable price. He only does wash and dry — no ironing, dry cleaning, etc. Happy clean day at our house.?

Planning Airline Travel

I have just completed planning and purchasing airline tickets for a month long visit to multiple cities in the US.   Using the Internet to do so is a must and can be an exhausting process.  If you are looking for the best deals with cheapest prices, things have changed in recent years.   It used to be a quick visit to (Oribiz.com, Expedia.com, or Travelocity.com ) would be a great place to compare fares and find a good deal.   Then, over time I noticed that sometimes going direct to the actual a
 

And Now I Know — Rainbows

Some people say that Boquete is the land of rainbows. I started to wonder:  Where do rainbows come from? Why different colors in a rainbow? Mr. Google tells me the sun makes rainbows when white sunlight passes through raindrops. These raindrops are little prisms that bend different colors in the white light and droplets will separate into colors. And now I know that violet will be the color on the bottom of a rainbow and red color on top. Have to go “rainbow hunting” to check thos

And Now I Know - Dental Service

Last month Bud broke a tooth. A chunk just fell away. He wasn’t eating anything hard or difficult to chew, but a big part of that tooth was missing. This was a major and unexpected happening plus scary. A new problem and no dental experience in Boquete. What a blow! Using the Health Care Resources for Chiriqui Province maintained by CL moderators Doug and Jo, I called Dra. Monica Sanjur. Told her Bud was in pain and requested an emergency appointment. (She is located in new building not far

And Now I Know -- Tailor Shop

A short time ago I ordered jeans from an internet source. Quality was not very good. They were cheap; about half the price of what I could find elsewhere. Yes, once upon a time my mother told me “you get what you pay for”.  The color was O.K. The real concern was the length of the pant legs. They were seven (7) inches too long. Now that would be a heck of a roll-up cuff! What to do. I had paid for them; spent money to ship them here, and they were cheap. Off I went to downtown Boquete

DogCamp helping an old guy with his dogs in the mountains

Yesterday we went to Jaramillo to try to see how we can help a old guy who has 4 dogs and three small puppies, we left dog food for them, the mother of the puppies is small-medium size, she is seven years old and she was pregnant eight times ? We would like to help more but we need to give in adoption the puppies that we have and then we can take the mother and the small puppies. If somebody wants to help with foster, dog food, pay for the blood test to the mother and the other 3 big dogs, no

Mission Statements

These testimonial statements were made several years ago by a couple who volunteered at the Mission in Volcancito. In my opinion, they are worth reviewing. I personally knew several well intentioned people who journeyed each year from the U.S. to volunteer their vacation time helping out, but they became disillusioned and quit coming. Our testimony of what we know of the “Mission”-  Part 1- Events of 2014 A.  Our names are Gary and Debbie Pearcy.  We are composing and presenting t

A Good Laugh

Yes, I agree with recent weather reports, it is cold. But Anouk, our Husky, is enjoying the local lower temperatures. Her sleeping habits have changed. For instance during the day she snoozes on our driveway amid gusty winds but apparently getting as much sun as possible, and only sleeps in her house at night. I laugh every time I notice her latest sleeping position of being on her back with legs poked upward. Must be comfortable for her because it seems to be one of her favorite sleeping p

Volunteers (like you) are CRITICAL to the success of DogCamp!

Volunteers (like you) are CRITICAL to the success of DogCamp!   There are about 40 DogCamp rescued dogs longing to be adopted! Caring for all these dogs is expensive and A LOT of work!   A regular volunteer team assisting with the chores -  feeding, walking, playing, petting, cleaning up, bathing, & laundry will provide DogCamp founders Javier and Magaly more time for the equally important work of training these rescued dogs, training DogCamp volunteers, promoting ad

Finca Dracula

This is a nice little Sunday adventure. Hunderds of varieties of Orchids and Ferns. She wanted to walk the property and we did. It isn't that big of a place and there are rest areas to stop and rest. The air is a little thin up there. I'm guessing close to 7000+ ft elevation----not sure. You will find a small restaurant on the property at the beginning of the tour. We ate at the Fanny's Terrace Bistro on the way up. Really great food there but not a huge selection on the menu. We had the Pasta w
