  1. Fox News continues to provide excellent, up-to-date global coverage which I've been following. Panama to prohibit movement during coronavirus outbreak based on gender https://www.foxnews.com/world/panama-prohibit-movement-coronavirus-gender
  2. Keith, I couldn't agree with you more. I've been a reader of the New York Times from childhood since we had home delivery and we used to fight over the crossword puzzle on sundays. In fact just the other day I wasn't feeling well and thought perhaps I had contracted the Coronavirus until I came across the article below. What a relief that was.
  3. I agree. It appears that the Coronavirus won't have the impact as does the common flu that annually claims tens of thousands of lives back in my home country so I'm assuming the same here in Panama. I recall that the H1N virus claimed 14,000 lives in my home country and at that time it wasn't politicized. And we need to refrain from referring to the Coronavirus as the "Wuhan" virus since in today's day and age associating an illness with any geography is considered racist unlike in the past with Lyme disease (Lyme, Connecticut), MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), H1N1 virus ("Swine" or "Mexican" flu), etc.
  4. Keith, What conspiracy theories has the US been offering? I've read about the conspiracy theory that the CIA planted the Coronavirus in China but that certainly wasn't the US's doing. Conversely, many throughout the world have speculated that China hasn't been forthcoming with the Coronavirus.
  5. Brundageba, As you can imagine, a network of pressure regulators for an entire subdivision would be costly in addition to the costs associated with the required routine maintenance. When I evaluated the Brisas subdivision years ago the realtor stated that within the year the roads were going to be repaved as well as the completion of a club house and pool too. They also told me that they were going to expand the road to Lucero to four lanes. Don't get me started on the realtors here in Boquete! As for adequate water service for that new subdivision on the road to Caldera, well, I think they're still trying to figure out how to supply water to Ricardo Perez's new 1,200 home subdivision in El Frances. Your guess is as good as any ones!
  6. When I purchased my home I noticed small puddles of water behind one of the toilets and under the kitchen sink in the cabinet below every once in a while. It didn't happen often but when I mentioned it to my neighbors they informed me that our neighborhood routinely experioences water pressures above 100 PSI which is in the danger zone for residential quality plumbing. I had Grupo Aguas install a pressure regulator with my backup pump/tank system as seen in the attached photo and the problem never occurred again. It's calibrated to only allow 60 PSI of municipal water to flow with my backup pump/tank system providing only 50 PSI in the event of a water outage which easily informs me (if I can't hear the pump turn on while it's raining) that there is low pressure or none at all as to warn me not to do laundry. This differential in pressure is also noticeable during a shower indicating that there's an outage so that I know to conserve. I recall the price of the pressure regulator being about $75 which of course is peanuts compared to the potential costs of repair due to dangerously high water pressures. And I strongly recommend pressure regulators constructed of brass, not ones constructed of PVC.
  7. Some very interesting comments about Boquete both in the Youtube video below and the associated public comments. My favorite: "Living in the Boquete area the past 8 years...let me tell you about the downside. ..... find a gated community with armed guards." I think I've visited every gated community here in Boquete over the years and I never recall seeing armed guards! **** Best Place to Retire in the World - Boquete Panama ( Growing Up Without Borders ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlwXNSUFVW0& ****
  8. Keith, You wrote: "I don't think the Speaker in Canada's Parliament or the U.S. Congress would allow this radical's defamatory rhetoric." You apparently didn't have the opportunity to watch the recent impeachment hearings in the U.S. Congress, you would've thought they were prosecuting Attila the Hun!
  9. It looks as though an old time practice may end here in Boquete. People can no longer charge for parking in public areas or right of ways and may be subject to fines of $100 to $500.
  10. Grupo Aguas in Alto Boquete located just north of Ivan's Ferreteria/Supermercado now sells and stocks Rheem brand tank based hot water heaters. They've got both electric and gas models in 30, 40, and 50 gallon sizes. The 50 gallon electric and gas models are priced (including tax) at $358 and $480 respectively. They've even got a stash of spare parts on hand too! There's a 50 gallon unit with my name on it! No more having to rely on the folks in David for service! For those who don't know they're the go to guys in Boquete for all of your water system needs. https://grupoaguas.com/ Monday – Friday 8.00 am -12.00 pm and 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm Saturday 8.00 am – 12 pm Phones +507 720 3637 +507 6676 4715 info@grupoaguas.com
  11. Last year Costa Rica's new president proposed a 25% hike on fuel. He also proposed that they would be free of fossil fueled vehicles by the year 2021 but then changed that to 2050. I sure hope that our president doesn't follow suit!
