  1. 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).
  2. Power out in Jaramillo Arriba from about 5:30 until about 9:30. Also in Panamonte Estates.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Actually I have 3 monitors for sale ranging in price for $25 (22") to $50 (19") to $75 (23")
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. It's easy for the peanut gallery to sit back and criticize someone who is trying to do a service for the community. I would like it if BD told us how he has contributed to our community lately.
  13. It's my understanding that the inability to see the link on an I-pad relates to the settings of the I-pad and maybe also to the service provider. It also seems to me that BD was quite rude.
  14. Having lived here for 16 years it's my opinion that life is much easier if the US government doesn't know you live in a foreign country. I would never have my social security deposited in a Panama bank. I've seen several of them fail and the rigamarole you have to go through with your account here is daunting. I don't file the proof of life form. Interesting enough, the new medicare card never came to my stateside address. It was fairly easy to go to mymedicare.gov and print out front and back of the new medicare card. My next step is to go to MBE and have the card laminated.
  15. I sell the condensed and English version of this book at the Tuesday market every week for $6. I also have my personal copy of the book you are looking for but it's not for sale. You can communicate with the author (in Spanish) by writing to her at mspinzon@gmail.com. You can ask her how much to purchase the book and mail it to you at your Texas address. I can take the payment on my paypal and deposit it into her Banco Nacional account. I do this with the proceeds of the books I sell. Penny 6510-8934

  19. Gloria Cruz was a younger woman who helped many expats. She translated, transported, did social security, ran interference with government offices, etc. She died unexpectedly Friday morning, March 1.
  20. I have an antique wall clock that isn't working correctly. Does anybody know of someone who can work on this clock -- either in David or Boquete? Thanks so much. Write to pjbarrett@aol.com or WhatsAp 6510-8934
  21. More than a minor disruption to traffic flow. They closed the Panamonte bridge at 6:30 AM and it was still closed when I went by at 12:30. Coming back into Boquete about 8:30, I was directed to the shoulder by a very large cavalcade of SUV's with flashing lights, police cars, police motorcycles, and even an ambulance.
  22. For those of you who remember the songwriting team of Mickey and Squirt who lived for a long time in Boquete . . . . Squirt is still writing songs and plays in her new home in The Villages, Florida. Here's one she's shopping around that will probably be a big hit for her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNPNgdNiolA&feature=youtu.be
  23. Nice, flat, titled building lot with both wonderful ocean and river views in Las Lajas, Panama. Las Lajas is the best beach in Panama and is just now beginning to be developed. This large lot is the last lot at the end of a dead-end road. It is high and dry and fenced with electrical poles close by. The lot is 1753 sq. meters with fruit and cashew trees. It has been meticulously cleaned. Dead trees have been removed, the fence has been repaired, and the undergrowth has been controlled. The owner has decided not to build on the lot and is offering it for $48,500 with financing options. The coordinates are 8°09'51.7"N 81°50'43.9"W. To drive to see this lot, enter the Las Lajas beach area. Turn left on the gravel road between Brisas del Pacifico and the Refugio Tropicale. Stay to the left and follow the signs to Casa Marpella. The lot is at the end of the road on the right side. For more information, contact Penny Barrett at pjbarrett@aol.com or WhatsAp 6510-8934
