    The last week we received a call from Aimee Langton, she wanted to come with her kids to play with the dogs, it was a great opportunity for the dogs to meet these very nice little girls. They didn't show any fear to the dogs and the dogs were gentle, loving and happy, expending time with them. Adopt a rescued dog is the best option ever!!!

    My name is Howard Green, an expat from the USA, and always an avid recycler and supporter of this program here in my new home, Boquete. Here is an introduction from the committee that is dedicated to making Chiriqui greener: Boquete February 1, 2018. To the Boquete Community: Boquete Recycle, Reduce, Reuse (Boquete RRR), is a committee created by citizens devoted to Boquete´s eco conservancy. We are convinced that a family who recycles makes the difference, and the only way to achieve this goal is by educating and creating awareness among students, business people and the whole community. Our group wishes to have your support to tackle this chore together. Please help us attain our programme of a clean and healthy environmentally friendly district for all “Boqueteños” and for those lucky ones who also happen to live on this paradise. This includes visitors who should be aware of their responsibility as well. We would like to begin by reducing all non-biodegradable materials such as: aluminum, iron, plastic, paper (white and colored) cardboard, and others; at home, schools, shops and businesses. At the same time, we want to teach everyone the reason why it is important to recycle these materials. We are working to accomplish this educational process at all levels. Also, we are organizing cleaning and collecting days for recyclable materials. This activity could be part of the social hours students have to comply at their own schools. Boquete RRR, wants the town of Boquete to be a role model in terms of cleanliness and beauty to the point that it will make us all proud. To all business people, we would like to include you in our data base of businesses committed with the environment. Thus, we are currently working to enroll everyone as part of our programme. We invite you all to become active collaborators of Boquete RRR and participate of the events the Committee members duly organize. Please support Boquete RRR pursue a better environment for a better quality of life. We thank you in advance for your collaboration and wish you a Happy 2018. Yours truly, Francisco Serracin President Comité Boquete Recicla, Reduce, Reutiliza ***************************************** Next i want everyone to see where Boquete's current recycling center is, Marked by the big red X. It is owned by a man in David who has one there, as well. Easy to find from the main street coming from either way. Just look for the large sign Boquete Bible Fellowship and turn as the arrow points (away from the biblioteca, across the street.) Next, you see the list of what is accepted there at this time. Its open 8-5 M-F. Finally, here is a map to a similar recycle center, that accepts exactly same things, located down the street from the Steak House in David. Note its marked with red X . Its harder to find as there is a wall blocking view of the collection yard but there is an office with door facing the street, 6395 Calle Alberto Osorio. o. The good news is that our group, is actively working with the mayor to help find a spot for a temporary collection of all items recyclable, INCLUDING plastics, water bottles, bags, etc. And all batteries, and equally important: Colored glass jars and bottles. We have already had one day in January where we collected HUGE amounts of these things and they were trucked to the frontier near Paso Canoas. i think that is becuase there are buyers in Costa Rica who handle those items whereas in Panama, no one will take them from the collection centers. Please keep checking our blog to see when the next collection will be. We have also had days where we all encouraged to gather and collect the bottles and cans which litter our highways and streets around Boquete. If you do not have room to store plastics, etc, until the next collection day, why not ask a neighbor if perhaps you can jointly store in a place they have until they all can be brought in. One last bit of advice: Please, please, wash your cans and bottles, first before you put them in separate bags and boxes so we do not have to sort them the day you bring them in. That was a huge task and we definitely could have used more volunteers to do this sorting at the temporary collection point. And if you arrive late, please do not leave your items unattended. That caused bad relations with the city and we need their cooperation to keep this project going. Thank you I welcome your additional comments. You can also email our group at boqueterrr@gmail.com.

    Technology has become so intertwined in our lives that it is hard to imagine life without it. It makes our lives simpler in many ways yet the complexity challenges even the most well informed. The news is full of technology stories that can be confusing, misleading and down right scary at times. Today there is news of more hacker activity and I want to pass along what you need to know in simplest terms. Equifax Data Breach The security breach of Equifax happened between May and July of 2017. We are several months since this happened. There is a lot of information available on this, so I am not going to repeat everything here. However, there is one important piece of information and recommendation that is important to examine. Many websites are recommending that you go to another website to check to see if you were affected by the data breach. Testing has shown that the website is giving false results as it wants people to signup for the free credit monitoring. Everything "free" comes with a price. The hidden part of this is that by signing up for the free credit monitoring, you also agree not to be part of any class action lawsuit that is sure to follow in the near future. I might also add that there is no reason to trust Equifax at this point in time, nor some free service they are trying to give away. Good information on this here: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2017/09/equifax-data-breach-what-do CCleaner Hacked A very popular tool for cleaning PC's is software called CCleaner. I personally use it as one of many in my toolkit for cleaning computers of malware and other nasty things. Today it was learned that the latest versions of the software between 5.33.6162 and 5.34 were infected with a multi-stage malware payload. Luckily this was discovered quickly and it appears to only affect 32 bit versions of the software, not the more common 64 bit versions. More details on the hack here: https://www.howtogeek.com/326742/ccleaner-was-hacked-what-you-need-to-know/ The point here is to be aware that any software installed on your computer could potentially contain malware. Even legitimate software can be compromised. The best things to do are: Backing up of your data regularly and keep it in multiple locations (Be sure your backup does not remain connected to your computer) Regular malware scans and cleanup - this is different than just a simple virus scan Have a computer tech that knows your system before disaster happens. You do not need to be a pro yourself but you will need a pro at some point in time. Technology is simply too complex these days and we are all vulnerable. My advice is to plan ahead, just as you would look for a doctor before you need one, you should do the same for a technology pro.
