  1. I frequently doze in front of the TV at night. One of my favorite channels for this activity is the Investigation Discover channel (67 on CableOnda) with all it's true crime programs. Last night I stumbled across an hour long story about Wild Bill in Bocas and how Don Winner, owner of the apparently now defunct Panama Guide, brought him to justice. The general theme was that Wild Bill killed lots of people in Bocas who were rootless and wouldn't be missed by either family or friends. He would kill them and then tell people they had sold him their property before leaving town. He got away with this for a long time but made a mistake when he killed a woman who owned a small private island. She was a party animal and her ex-husband still kept in contact with her. She was immediately missed and an investigation was begun. Her ex brought in investigative journalist Don Winter and Wild Bill now resides in the David Correctional Facility. It was a good show.

  5. This shuffle board type game was either in a bar or a large rec room before it was donated to the Handicap Foundation. It measures 25" wide, 10'2" long, and 39" high.

  7. I truly believe that Panama brought this law on themselves by instructing the bag boys to use a separate bag for almost every item. It's ridiculous. The ones who will suffer are the charity patio sales. People buy multiple items there and the sales usually collect plastic bags right along with the donated sales items.

The rice was one of the best I've tasted in Panama. The other great rice is at Hotel Nacional in David. The special consisted of a large mound of this great rice, a boneless pork steak, some lentils, and a little lettuce. There were no strobe lights or music. The menu is quite extensive.
