    Actually, I was expecting to read about some 'Big Changes at the BCP'. Last time around it was 'Free Food at the BCP'. Neither post has anything to do with the BCP Theatre group or the BCP facility, in fact they're advertisements for stuff being sold at the Tuesday Morning Market. Perhaps the next time BCP is titled in a post, I'll just ignore it.

    Dru's Bench We have a seat and it's kinda neat, it sits in the yard with a view. We sit out there in the cool mountain air and think of our times spent with Dru. There's such a breeze, and pollen...we sneeze and a moment of sadness wafts by. We miss you Dru. We think of you, and those thoughts cause us to cry. But in our seat that's oh no neat, we can see such a beautiful view. The sky up high, and birds flyin' by, and happiness in thoughts of you. A hummingbird drinks from a flower nearby; a hawk squawks chased by a bird. The sounds we hear make us feel you're near. The sweetest sounds we've heard. So cheers to you Dru ! YOU are the view: the flowers, the wind and the sky. We sit in this seat...oh so neat; You're near...so why should we cry ? We love and miss you Dru! Alison and Bill Brundage

    Sometimes I think we need to lighten up a bit. A suggestion might possibly have been warranted , but I don't think a crucifixion was necessary. To these folks it's big change to move from one location at the Tuesday market to another. I'm sure they had no clue how the title might have misled some folks. Share their joy ........and move on. Life's short.

    The Title of this post is incredibly misleading.

    Maybe they can catch the thieves with their hands in the cookie jar. At least that would be a start. And then, hold each province school administrator responsible. The school system here is in sad shape. It's all about politics, money and priorities. The biggest problem with all of Panama is CORRUPTION. At least the prosecutors in Panama City are over loaded with work under this administration "trying" to prosecute and get a handle on corruption.

    Dear Linda, This is a very nice follow through on your High Tea. I rarely (other than for Amigos Animales) see something after the fact that talks about what amount was raised or accomplished from all of these fund raising activities. Yours is refreshingly transparent and specific. Thank you for taking the time to let the community know of your successes and accomplishments. One would have thought that the police department would have already had a stove, but then this is a country needing many things. Glad you folk are making a difference for the people who help protect us.

    JUNE 20, 2018 (WEDNESDAY) = only 30 spaces available "Private" Heliconia Day Tour and Plant Sale = Carla Black`s Heliconia Farm in Volcan = Finca la Chichicas (Carla will have a presentation at BCP on June 12). Carla & Angel’s home is surrounded by beautiful gardens with more species of heliconia than you can imagine, as well as other beautiful tropical plants including tropical water lilies. The garden is filled with beautiful heliconia flowers, magnificant views, water features, and hiking trails. The farm is called “Finca Las Chichicas”….named after the Panamanian common name of the most prolific heliconia in this country, Heliconia latispatha. What is heliconia? Heliconia, derived from the Greek word helikonios, is a genus of flowering plants in the Heliconiaceae. Most of the species are native to the tropical Americas, but a few are indigenous to certain islands of the western Pacific and Maluku. They are a sister to the banana family and are closely related to ginger and Bird of Paradise. There are 250 species of all colors in shades of yellows and reds. Carla Black says she might have the biggest collection of heliconia species in the world! Plant lovers find the Panamanian tropics a lush wonderland of botanical curiosities. Heliconias are one of the more unique varieties of flowering plant found here in great abundance. Many species of Heliconia are found in rainforests or tropical wet forests of these regions. Several species are widely cultivated as ornamentals. Common names for the genus include lobster-claws, wild plantains or false bird-of-paradise. The last term refers to their close similarity to the bird-of-paradise flowers (Strelitzia). Collectively, these plants are also simply referred to as heliconias.” Every year..for 2 days only… Carla opens their garden to the public and they have an enormously popular sale of heliconia plants. This year the plant sale weekend is June 23 -24, 8:00am- 4:00pm. This is the only time of year the general public is invited in to look around. June 20 (3 days Before her Public big plant sale)…Carla Black will give us a “private tour”. You will also be able to buy plants that day. This will give you a chance to enjoy their beauty and acquire them for your home gardens….in a “private” environment! You are the “lucky ones” …..you will be able to pick and buy your heliconias before everybody else!! ***Carla will accept “preorders” and set them aside for you to bring home in the bus on June 20. Please review her website and let her know which plants you want to buy BEFORE we get there. Reason for this is because it`s confusing to see what`s what without the cut flowers, or trying to remember which are for sale while on the tour. Contact information for Carla Black: e-mails: heliconiatortuosa@gmail.com OR gardens@volcanbaru.com Website: www.heliconiagarden.com Today`s itinerary: 1.) We leave Boquete at 8AM. Get to Volcan around 10AM. The drive from Boqueto to Volcan is a very scenic, beautiful ride. You will be surrounded by mountains and nature all the way. 2.) When we get to Carla Black`s farm ….we will have a 2 hour “private tour” with her. 3.) AT 1 PM we will have lunch at “Mana Restaurant” in Volcan. 4.) After lunch we will drive back to Boquete. 5.) We should be back in Boquete latest 5PM. People should come ready to walk, with sturdy shoes and walking sticks. Bus will drop us off at entry of the farm. Walk from the entrance to where you can sit down is about 200m., down and up. For those of you who do not want to walk anymore, you can sit in the garden while the rest of the group goes to the far corners of the farm. This entire package includes: The round bus trip, coffee and cinnamon rolls before we leave Boquete, snacks, water and wine on the trip to and from Boquete, fee for private tour with Carla Black at her amazing heliconia farm, Lunch at “Mana Restaurant” in Volcan.

    P.S., I just learned about following stuff here from a different posting. This website is something else. Lots of things that I am learning. Not like Facebook at all. Actually think I may like this more than Facebook because things are organized in folders that make sense to me. I am now following this subject, or at least I think and hope I am.

    Microchip Clinic for your Pet Wednesday May 16 10:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m Amigos de Animales building The microchip we are offering is ISO standard and will be recognized worldwide. The cost per microchip is $25 which includes the registration into our database and the application of the microchip. If you already have a microchip implanted in your pet and want to have it checked and registered into our database, please bring your pet and we will be happy to scan them. Our readers are universal and will read all microchips except for discontinued AKC Trovan Chips. Voluntary donations are appreciated. At the moment we have two readers, one which will be with Salvadores de Animales and one which will be given to a veterinarian. As our program grows we will purchase more readers. We are just getting started but our plan is to create a regional and later nation-wide database and distribute readers to different points of interest. If your four legged partner is not socialized please register first without him and let us know so we can take the necessary precautions. If you are interested in microchipping your pet, email saldeapanama.org and write “Microchip” in the subject line. If you have any more questions do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you

    Thanks. We would like to go, but this posting says 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, whereas a separate posting (see below) says 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. What is the correct time?

    I'm no expert at all, but when I get desperate I use Netflix app on my phone and then Chromecast to a TV. For some reason my phone is never caught in the "wrong location". Now, Doug will read this and tell me I'm using "data" and costing him a billion dollars.... haha

    Shopping at PriceSmart yesterday (along with maybe 300 other people) and noticed only Kirkland dog food available was for small dogs; no dog biscuits, and no salmon capsules for pets. Saw Christmas decorations in the back aisles. Hope this doesn’t mean decorations instead of pet supplies will be possible. Please post if you find Kirkland food on the shelf and we will return to David.

    I do understand, Pat, that the title of the post is misleading. I simply don't see it as so grievous an error as others do. It was a poor choice of words, but I'm not convinced it was meant to mislead. My point, which I thought was clear, is that I don't find it so offensive as to merit the kind of criticism leveled.
