  1. When I read Keith's comment I thought that he was wrong. But then rereading their advertisement says that he is right. These guys are confusing the public and loosing out on a good deal. Why even have a chili cook-off if the public is not involved? I'm writing this event off to bad management. Why even advertise this?

    Chili Challenge - Amigos de Animales


    You are entitled to your opinion, but I add that you have no knowledge as to what is on my calendar that limits me to just one opportunity to see the BCP play.. I've never been to the chili cook-off challenge, but have heard that there are many good chili samples. It seems to be a good fund raiser for a good group of people helping our pets.

    Chili Challenge - Amigos de Animales


    Wow. You put this right on top of a play at BCP theatre that I am already committed to going to. I really would like to do both, but now I have to chose. Can't people coordinate big events so there is no conflict?
  4. Agree. There will be snow in Boquete before we ever see that level of police stationed in Boquete.
  5. Wow, how lucky US citizens are! To have only four hours each week in which to conduct government business with the staff at the US Embassy. 😪 Pathetic is an understatement.

    P.S., the website that Kevin referred to — www.iop,global — seemed far too technical and focused on digital money for my liking.

    I was trying to wrap my aging brain around this topic for this coming Tuesday, but not succeeding. Was considering going to this talk but since I live near David it is a hassle for me to go there. Ended up doing some internet research. Yes, I know the internet has a lot of crap, but I am pretty good at filtering out crap. I found one Guardian article that kinda helped me to begin to see the bigger picture. Learned that there are two domains of this “internet of” thinking: Internet of Things, and Internet of People. This talk by Kevin is on the second concept. You might want to review the Guardian article that I uncovered before going to BCP next Tuesday: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/may/25/forget-internet-of-things-people I am still thinking about whether I jump on a bus to go to listen. Not knowing how savvy Kevin is on this topic is part of my concern. For Kevin, I don’t mean that as an insult. I just don’t think of the majority of people in Panama — both Panamanian and guests — as being super sophisticated. The description says he is a “Chapter Leader” for the people group so hopefully he sees the bigger picture and the issues involved. For me thie biggest concern is over loss of privacy.
  8. Wait a minute. Maybe the Cubans were coming here to help fix the roads in Boquete since the locals don't seem to be able to do that.🤔
  9. Your subject is very misleading. It infers that you have no electricity. However, upon reading your post, it is the payment office (in Boquete?) that is down. You may want to be more careful in the future in choosing your words. I just paid my UF bill through the internet about 10 minutes ago, without problem.
  10. What do you mean by registering? What does registering do for you? I’ve been to and used their services before without having registered. I’ve just paid a fee, which is very low by US standards, and been taken well care of. So what are you talking about?

    Lucero Golf & Country Club Mexican Night

    They have a problem of keeping facts together. Is this dinner thing from 5:00 to 8:00, or 5:30 to 8:00, or 5:00 to 8:30, or what?????

    Victorian High Tea Party


    Dear Linda, This is a very nice follow through on your High Tea. I rarely (other than for Amigos Animales) see something after the fact that talks about what amount was raised or accomplished from all of these fund raising activities. Yours is refreshingly transparent and specific. Thank you for taking the time to let the community know of your successes and accomplishments. One would have thought that the police department would have already had a stove, but then this is a country needing many things. Glad you folk are making a difference for the people who help protect us.
  13. A 19% gain in banking in two months is huge. What is the real story here? Is Panamá setting itself up — or being set up — for another Panamá Papers incident? Say, Panama Papers, Round Two?

    Forgot to mention that there are two reviews of Casa Mexicana on this website. http://www.chiriqui.life/blogs/entry/327-la-casa-mexicana-david/ http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/8656-la-casa-mexicana/
