  1. Curryleaf

    I am looking for fresh curry leaves to use in Indian cooking. Any ideas where to go?
  2. Actually, he did have a chance to survive. Unfortunately he was left to bleed out in the road for 45 minutes. No ambulance would come from Bomberos. Finally the private ambulance showed up but a payment of $300 had to be made first. He died shortly after being put in that ambulance. This according to my Panamanian friend who has worked in conjunction with the SS clinic for many years. I have lived here for 11 years. I continue to be shocked and often horrified at the treatment Panamanians receive from their government - especially working class citizens who have no financial leverage. How it is that a country that has the wealth that Panama does, the ability to pay from the government coffers for extravaganzas of all types (including private weddings) travel junkets, villas, and just plain stuffing private bank accounts with the people's money not able to supply a major community with one functioning ambulance? How is it that the wretched state of the so called new Social Security clinic is good enough for the residents of Boquete? Shame on you, Panama end of rant

  6. Once upon a time...my mother was into "Let's try this recipe from Gourmet Magazine!" Salmon eggs (excuse me, roe) in jellied consume...served cold in her best crystal goblets. To this day I can remember the taste/consistency As they say in Panama "Guacala!" (or huacala if you prefer) Disgusting! My dad used the leftovers to catch trout.
  7. Dead and suffocating chicks

    Yes, that would be it.
  8. Dead and suffocating chicks

    This morning I went to a local garden supply store at the north end of Boquete. I saw a sight that I still have not recovered from. As I was about to enter the store, I saw smashed against the side of the cage dozens of dead and dying chicks who were trying to get heat from the heat lamp that was positioned at the side of the cage. The heat lamp should always be place a correct distance above chicks to give them adequate warmth and freedom to move around. The stench of dead chicks and fecal matter reached out into the street. I told 2 employees what was happening and they seemed to have cared less. When I reminded them that this was abuse and completely incorrect, they seem to slowly make moves to do something. Please go past said garden and feed/pet supply store and let them know that you are making note of the treatment of their livestock. There is nothing more lethal and cruel than the human animal.
  9. The Regional Hospital has one that has been greatly enlarged (but still more people in need than there are machines for) and also Hosp. Chiriqui has one...expensive as I recall
  10. Keep Your Dog Inside

    I have just read 2 notices of lost dogs who ran away because of fireworks. PLEASE help spread the word that ALL pets should be kept inside during fireworks displays.
  11. Pests etc.

    Oh I am so sorry!!! I do know how much it hurts. Incredibly! I was doing some research and one of the suggestions I found repeated from various sources was to put clorox on the area of the sting....dilute it maybe 50 50 and it is supposed to counteract the venom. My little dog brushed against one the other day. First I got packaging tape and applied the sticky side the where the sting was in order to pull out any remaining spines. Dipped his foot in clorox dilurion and poked some benadryl down him. He did ok and the venom did not seem to travel up his leg. When I was stung years ago on my hand it went all the way to closing my throat and I went all the way to the emergency clinic (we had one back then) for IV anti histamine (I think that's what it was) There are a LOT of caterpillars this year it seems. All of the most poisonous have showed up at my house. If they look really pretty and have lots of fancy feathers, bristles....do not touch. Well, really don't touch any of them!
  12. New York Times piece titled "How to Hide $400 Million Dollars". http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/30/magazine/how-to-hide-400-million.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=second-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news Lengthy, well written, and ultimately sickening to realize that this miserable, unhappy and greedy pair represent what has been happening to deplete the wealth of nations...and the robbery of "the little people" who pay their taxes. (Leona Helmsley: "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes." ) From the article: James S. Henry, a former chief economist at McKinsey, calls the offshore financial world the “economic equivalent of an astrophysical black hole,” holding at least $21 trillion of the world’s financial wealth, more than the gross domestic product of the United States.
  13. Cable Onda payments

    You can pay several different bills at the Western Union office, including Cable Onda and Cable and Wireless. Cash only, however.
  14. Franklin has been my neighbor for 11 years. It seems he knows everything worth knowing about gardening and landscape maintenance that there is to know. He is looking for work and you would be fortunate to have him come even once to do your gardening. He sees everything! Every bug, fungus, plant disease...he can tell you about your soil just from looking at your plants and he can tell you how to fix it...organically or otherwise. He knows which "weeds" are medicinal and how to use them. He is punctual, hardworking and modest in what he charges. He does not speak English but I am happy to interpret for him. Call me if you think you could give him some work. Evelyn 6752-2283
