  1. We've all driven some pretty steep roads here in Volcan and Boquete. * Welsh town Harlech claims world's steepest street Amy Woodyatt and Lauren Kent, CNN Updated 16th July 2019 https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/welsh-town-world-steepest-street-intl-scli/index.html (CNN) ā€” The seaside town of Harlech in Wales is now home to the world's steepest street, Guinness World Records has ruled, knocking a New Zealand road off the top spot after more than a decade. Ffordd Pen Llech, a winding street through the historic part of town, has a gradient of 37.45%. That means for every 2.67 meters a person travels horizontally on the street, there is a one-meter rise. "I first realized this street was a contender for the steepest street in the world when my car slid straight down with all four tires locked," Harlech resident Gwyn Headley told Guinness. The Welsh street beats the record previously held by Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand, which has a one-meter rise for every 2.86 meters. Residents of Harlech came together to apply for the official record, which required verification by an expert surveyor. The record is measured based on the steepest 10-meter section of the road, according to Guinness World Records. "It was a lot tougher than we thought," Headley said. "Guinness World Records was ultra-specific in the criteria demanded for it to qualify as the steepest street in the world, and although we were confident in meeting or exceeding nine of them, we were worried about the tenth." Resident Myrddyn Phillips, who took the measurements that led to the world title, said: "To have the steepest street in the world, recognized by Guinness World Records, is brilliant for Harlech, it's brilliant for Wales." Residents are celebrating the new record with a "street" party at the end of July. And in August, Welsh Cycling will visit the town to hold uphill time trials on the street, according to the town's website. The title of steepest street is just another accolade that Harlech, already a UNESCO World Heritage site, can add to its collection. "I am super proud of the achievement, it will really put our small town with a big heart on the map. It's amazing news, the town is buzzing today," Judith Strevens, local resident and business owner, told CNN. The title of steepest street is hotly contested. The World Atlas gives the accolade to Canton Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but it is the Guinness World Record that is the most sought after. Residents of Ffordd Pen Llech didn't seem to feel too bad about taking the title from New Zealand's Baldwin Street. "I'm thrilled for us but in every game there has to be a losing team," Headley said. "I feel sorry for them, but a record is a record, figures are figures -- it's inarguable."

  2. When are we going to see a photo of said clock?
  3. President Trump was wise to rely on an international accounting firm which absolves him of any wrong doing.
  4. Years ago in Panama City a taxi that I was driving in did just that, he hopped up on the sidewalk and drove about a half a block to bypass traffic.
  5. That's not the worst of it. I remember when a coastal city in Florida was elated to get a couple of cruise ship docking contracts. The docks were along a boardwalk with restaurants, shops, and hotels, with beautiful water views that were completely blocked when the cruise ships docked. They didn't realize that cruise ships are upwards of ten stories or more tall. I remember the first time visiting, it was a shocker, a 100' tall wall blocking the view and daylight. It made the water front businesses look like they were in an alley. I wonder what view will be eliminated at Amador.
  6. That is the exact reason, a disagreement over excess construction charges with Naturgy.
  7. It's easy on an Apple too: Change System Language: Click on the Apple Menu on the top left of the screen. ... Once in System Preferences, click on Language and Region. ... Once in Language and Region, add a new language by clicking on the + icon. Pick the desired language from the populated list and click Add. The Apple store in Terronal Plaza will swap out a Spanish keyboard for an English keyboard at no charge at purchase time for a desktop. For a laptop, they'll order an English version from Panama City.
  8. Penny, How long do Windows PCs last? I just retired my Apple iMac, it worked flawlessly for 9 years, 9 months, and 3 weeks and still to this day. It never needed any repair or maintenance whatsoever. I would still be using it today however my model was limited to 8 GB of memory and I needed more for a new application. I guess I shouldn't bother donating to the Handicap Foundation. And for the record, 10 years ago it cost $1,499 and today they sell used on Ebay for $250 to $450. How much is a 10 year old Windows PC worth?
  9. Do yourself a favor and purchase an Apple and pay one of the local techies for an overview since it is a bit different than a Windows computer.
  10. Well that answers that. It's a shame that they've got this system in which a very small percentage of the information is used, you'd think they'd have it automated.
