  1. It seems like the lot across from Tre Scalini is the new place for food trucks to locate. Last night I dined al fresco with some good friends: We discovered the latest food truck which appears to be named "Cuba" or "Fabrica Cubana". Here's a scan of their flyer.
  2. This might be old news but the ferreteria in Alto Dorodo advertises that they work on high pressure hoses.
  3. What a plus for me. I've not been happy with the three different pulmonologists I've consulted in David. Dra Anguizola was next on my list to check out. The fact that she and her husband are moving to Boquete is wonderful. I also agree with Bonnie that Dr. Anguizola is the best cardiologist in Chiriqui. I need to get registered as his patient even before I need him because he's awfully booked up.
  4. Is it just my imagination or do we get more earthquakes in May than any other month?
  5. Hard to believe they found 40+ people in Boquete young enough to benefit from this presentation. More power to them (and to the little blue pills as well).
  6. Power out in Jaramillo Arriba from about 5:30 until about 9:30. Also in Panamonte Estates.
  7. My barbecue grill rusted out and I've changed to charcoal. This tank is still probably half full. The regulator is not the Panagas or Tropigas type. It's specific to barbecue grills. First $20 takes it away. Email pjbarrett@aol.com or WhatsAp 6510-8934.
  8. For the last couple of days, ATM machines all over Panama have been rejecting Wells Fargos debit/ATM cards. People can still use their cards at restaurants and gas stations but not to get cash from an ATM. Since WF is the largest bank system in the U.S. I imagine this is causing quite a big of consternation among the tourists who are here and who suddenly find themselves cashless.
  9. Large titled building lot on the Palmira Road. This lot is only 1.1 km from the Boquete David road, just a little past The Boquete Country Club development. It is approximately 2000 square meters -- large enough for a couple of nice houses or a small condo development. There is approximately 40 meters frontage on the south side of the Palmira Road. The owner is currently living in the states and her medical situation is such that she can no longer build on the land and wants to sell. It is priced at $60,000 which is $30/sq meter. There is a sign in front of the lot which identifies it. For more information email pjbarrett@aol.com or WhatsAp 6510-8934
  10. Brand new, unfurnished house near the David Airport. Three bedrooms one bath, granite counters, completely empty. Panamanian owner is being transferred and wants to rent this house for $300/month with a one month deposit. Length of lease can be negotiated. Contact Evelyn Zapata 6742-7611.
  11. Actually I have 3 monitors for sale ranging in price for $25 (22") to $50 (19") to $75 (23")
  12. Does anybody know when the next recycling date is for the volunteers at the fairgrounds. I don't mind taking some of my stuff to the business next to the Boquete Bible Fellowship but they don't take plastic. Since Howard Green moved to Spain, we don't seem to be getting as much information on the recycling effort anymore.
  13. It's very easy on a PC with either Windows 10 or Windows 7 to change it back and forth between English and Spanish. However, it you buy a new PC or Mac in Panama, the keyboard will most likely be a Spanish version and that is more difficult and expensive to change.
  14. Do yourself a favor and get a PC (non-Apple). You pay twice as much to purchase the Apple initially and twice as much to fix it when it's broken. I've sold more than 100 computers for the Handicap Foundation. These computers were donated in all states of disrepair and almost all of them were resurrected by purchasing parts on Ebay. We've never been able to resurrect an Apple donation. To purchase the parts is almost always more costly than the computer is worth. The ones we've found most easy to repair are Dells. Many of the parts are interchangeable and readily available at reasonable prices. I just sold an almost new Dell computer for $340 which would have cost about $1200 new.
  15. When Bud, Marcelyn and I ate at the new Sabroson, we were the only 3 diners although they have seating for about a hundred patrons. I believe this restaurant is the 3rd Sabroson in Boquete and I think there are two more in David. Am I right?
