  1. I have reached out to a contact in Citizen Services at the Embassy and asked her to contact Jo. I also will look into the issue of a citizen being unable to reach the Embassy in the event of emergency and will report back.
  2. Titles are very prominent, Pat. Many may see it and not bother to read the discussion. Then the damage is done.
  3. This is a serious accusation based on "what appeared to be" Salmonella poisoning and idle chatter with another person. Such assertions made in a public forum also are actionable under Panama's calumnia y injuria law.

    Timely warning, Keith. As is my practice, I wasn't driving the day I had too many beers at the David Fair.
  5. Love Your Pet??

    At $150 per month, sales of "pet pages" makes $1800. Expenses over and beyond income regularly surpass this figure per month.

  7. Feria Internacional de David


    if you go, wear as few clothes as decency permits. I’ve been once, and it was hotter than four hells. There were some interesting aspects, but I was too hot to appreciate them. I do recall that there was plenty of cold beer, though, and that I drank far too many to ward off a heat stroke. 😁

  9. Looks like good food at low prices. Now all the expats will start going there and demanding the jubilado discount, and the place will either go bust or raise its prices significantly.
  10. And Now I Know — Haircut

    It’s a barber shop, but the younger barber (also a real sweetheart) also cuts women’s hair—or at least women’s short hair. I went to him many years ago until my friends shamed me into going to a salon. Nothing fancy, but a good, serviceable short cut.
