    Bank rant

    WOW Thanks. We would never in a zillion years have thought of that
  2. This kind of thing is out of control in the USA. Gizmo mania. I suppose there may be a lesson learned here. That said, 12 years does seem pretty harsh. A Panama prison is not a good place to be...for 12 years!

    Boquete ning?

  4. Open garbage pits intensify the difficulty in keeping the rats at bay.

    Boquete ning?

    I used to look at the classifieds but it is now a total pain in the tail to use. I just don't open Boquete.Ning anymore.

    Martyr's Day

    When you look it up on-line the official day is Wed the 9th. I just found another site that said it will be officially celebrated on Monday the 7th. BUT hey, this is Panama so it may be a very loooong weekend.
  7. Wow.....that person must have an enormous amount of time on their hands. Quite a detailed dissection of driving. One comment read: " Stay home, problem solved" . I had to laugh.
  8. Been there done that...they know, and we are told they are busy with other issues that apparently take precedence. For some folks tanks are empty for lack of pressure enough to restore what is used. If you do not have a tank , you do not have water now for several weeks. For those that do have tanks it's a stain on the water pumps and as well a challenge in the recycling of water. The water I use to wash clothes I catch and wash the floors with then use what's left to flush the toilets and the rest to water a plant or two.
  9. Thanks. We'll take along the photos of the ruptured pipe ( one of three in Brisas) exhausting enough water to supply the entire flower fair daily. It is an enormous amount of water and the biggest one supplies a fire hydrant & all the homes in the lower portion. I guess the pressure has been amped up in order that what water does get through the ruptured pipe that some tanks get filled slowly over night. We are told the City is busy with other repairs that take priority. This is the 4th time ( I've lost count) this same pipe has been repaired. Some residents have collect a fund to repair it themselves. I do not believe this is a good idea. It is a difficult repair and one the city should attend to. A water fountain and a river....and off the side of the canyon a waterfall.
  10. Great. Lucky for them. It's a BEAUTIFUL house !!!!
  11. Yes. Makes me nervous when my husband trusts the other driver will stop at these intersections where he has the right of way. I just don't trust the other drivers. He wants to mount my seat facing backwards. ....no I think he'd rather put me in the trunk.

    Our one coffee tree is ready for picking. Maybe we'll have one pot this year!
  13. Lutein (FloraGLO® 15mg. AND Zeaxanthin 4.75 mg in combination Recommended for eye health by my ophthalmologist. These are two vitamin supplements that promote eye health and that pass the blood barrier into the vessels of the eye. You can find this on Amazon and other places that sell vitamin supplements. Much cheaper than buying it at the Hospital Chiriqui pharmacy !
  14. This is when police work can actually be quite enjoyable.
  15. With all this post holiday traffic, how can two cars be going so fast as to demolish the front ends of both...especially in this location?

  20. Seems like closing the hiking path would be a good idea until this weather lets up a bit...if it does. That's brutal
  21. The store needs a public address system so they can make announcements: "Attention attention would Mr Citadel South Carolina please come to the office to collect your door prize..." ( You can make up the rest of the story from there.) My vote: The rotten tomatoes the store discards could be used in a public tomato toss . My hunch is some Panamanians would weigh on that one.
