  1. Pilates provides a great work-out simultaneously working on many levels. Through awareness and concentration practitioners think and focus on everything they're doing, not only strengthening the body/mind connection, but reinforcing and stimulating the coordination of the central nervous system. Pilates felt his exercise method strengthened his student's intelligence as more cells/receptors of the brain and nervous system were turned on during and following the execution of his exercises. CranioSacral Therapy is an Osteopathic, therapeutic modality also working with the central nervous system [CNS]. Based on the premise that all our experiences, our thoughts and our tensions are stored and recorded in the cells of our body, it gently assists the CNS to release these tensions and the restrictions they form, thus assisting the total organism toward functioning at a higher, more optimal level. As we age, doesn't it make sense to do whatever we can to enjoy our lives and live most optimally? Isn't our health our highest priority?

  4. The owners/administrators of the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website are very pleased to announce the release of another audio podcast in the series that is called "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts". These podcasts are produced by Marcelyn Jandreau and Bud Huber, and basically are conversations with the "movers and shakers" in the Chiriqui highlands area. (Note: "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts" is a different series from the "Chiriqui.Life Stories" audio podcasts that are produced by Michael Schwartz and also published on CL.) The subject of this podcast is the VA pension benefit called "Aid and Attendance", as presented by Betsy Barbeau. The Aid and Attendance pension benefit is a VA administered benefit that was first enacted by President Dwight David Eisenhower in the 1950s. Aid and Attendance is a benefit that the VA doesn't readily tell veterans about. This posting documents that meeting, including the contact information, the presentation materials, pictures, and an audio recording of the presentation and the Q&A session. Podcasts are premium content on CL, which means that you need to be a registered member of CL and logged in. Membership on CL is free, so if you are not already a member, then register and listen to Betsy's podcast about this VA pension benefit. If you are NOT already a registered member of CL, then first access CL at Chiriqui.Life and click on the "Sign Up" icon at the upper right area. Then wait for your registration to be finalized (you will get an email to that effect).

  6. The owners/administrators of the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website are very pleased to announce the release of another audio podcast in the series that is called "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts".

(Note: "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts" is a different series from the "Chiriqui.Life Stories" audio podcasts that are produced by Michael Schwartz and also published on CL.) The subject of this podcast is the PanaBandas project. PanaBandas is the brainchild of Michael Jason Stone ("Stone"), and is to be an annual, national-level band competition held in the Boquete area. The central idea behind PanaBandas is twofold: (a) to motivate Panama's youth to be involved in music, and thus move away from drugs, gangs, and similar lifestyle options, and (b) to expose Panama's young musical talent to an international audience via a first prize of a recording studio session. This first PanaBandas competition is to be held at the Boquete Fair Grounds on December 15-17, 2017. Podcasts are premium content on CL, which means that you need to be a registered member of CL and logged in. Membership on CL is free, so if you are not already a member, then register and listen to the PanaBandas story as told by Stone and Nan.

  8. The owners/administrators of the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website are very pleased to announce the release of another audio podcast in the series that is called "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts". However, this podcast is unique. These podcasts are produced by Marcelyn Jandreau and Bud Huber, and basically are conversations with the "movers and shakers" in the Chiriqui highlands area. (Note: "Chiriqui.Life Podcasts" is a different series from the "Chiriqui.Life Stories" audio podcasts that are produced by Michael Schwartz and also published on CL.) The subject of this podcast is Elba Maria De Las Mercedes Landau del Cid, with the short version of her name being Elba Landau. She is known to family and friends simply as Elba, and she is joined in this English language podcast with her long time friend, Maria Boyd, in case of language issues. There is a bit of coincidence in how this podcast got scheduled, and some differences in how it is being published from the typical CL audio podcast. Price Peterson, a very long time resident of this area, was recently the recipient of an award that was presented at the Biblioteca de Boquete. In a conversation with Price shortly after that ceremony, I (Bud) had an interesting dialogue about the comments made by Carlos Enrique Landau; Price's response was that the Landau family is quite large and contributed significantly to Boquete during the early 1900s. Price then suggested that we interview Elba Landau (a cousin of Carlos Enrique Landau) because she is very knowledgeable about the history of Boquete. And so we set out to interview her. Elba lives in Bajo Boquete. Marcelyn and I would check for her presence at her home as we were running errands in town. We finally connected, and she graciously accepted our invitation to participate in a podcast recording session. Among other achievements in her life, she taught piano and that included living for a period of time in the US, and that was when and where she learned the English language, however, she a bit shy about admitting to such bilingual skills. To help Elba feel more comfortable about the language issue, we included one of our neighbors, Maria Boyd, who has known Elba for many years; they consider each other to be good friends. Thus this podcast came to be scheduled. Given the length of the recording session (not planned, but it just happened that way), we have decided to break Elba's podcast into segments based on the time period involved or events discussed. This podcast with Elba and Maria is the first segment. This podcast consists of Elba's recollections about Bocas del Toro and the Boquete areas of more than 110 years ago. Her grandfather arrived in the Bocas del Toro area from Germany in the early 1900s, and then her grandfather and father (aged twelve at the time) moved from the Bocas del Toro area to Boquete in 1915. Elba is a long time resident of Boquete, having been born in the family residence in Jaramillo Arriba. She has never married, but has a large extended family and many friends, has traveled quite a bit, and is passionate about certain issues, especially the environment. Again, note that the content in this podcast consists of Elba's recollections; there may be historical inaccuracies. But regardless, it is still interesting information. Podcasts are premium content on CL, which means that you need to be a registered member of CL and logged in. Membership on CL is free, so if you are not already a member, then register and listen to Elba share her recollections. If you are NOT already a registered member of CL, then first access CL at Chiriqui.Life and click on the "Sign Up" icon at the upper right area.

  10. Tomorrow on display at BCP Farmer's Market is a "GIANT FOUR LEAF CLOVER." At three inches in circumferrance, preserved in glass, Master Herbalist Frank Gruber discovered it in the mountains of Boquete. He is now farming them. Its green in the shade but turns to a "Radiant Golden Color" when exposed to the rays of the sun. See it on Frank´s stand where he is selling his Jungle Oil and Wrinkle Cream. This first preserved GIANT 4 LEAF CLOVER is not on sale but you can get on time on the Christmas Gift order buying list... 50 dollars each. iDEAL FOR COLLECTORS. Makes for a unique Christmas Gift or Souvenir from PANAMA WITH LOVE! Observe with the magnifying glass the CROSS where the 4 Leafs meet. Only God knows why he placed it in the center of the 4 leaf clover. Why the belief that they bring luck has persisted for thousands of years remains a mystery. Its like Aloe Vera. If it did not work over the centuries people would stop using it. I recognize there is something better than the lucky 4 leaf clover. "Earn God's Blessing!" Still its beautiful. Come see it! "HASTA MAÑANA, " Frank
