  1. Doesn't everyone know that STOP is an abbreviation for Slight Tap On Pedal?
  2. Interesting and dramatic differences in work ethics of the two countries. Maybe the locals should think about these things. How long does it take to build a house here? How long should it take to build a house here? Food for thought. (Or train station, or commercial building, or xyz?)
  3. For those like me who are not familiar with the impact of sun spot activity and our local weather, could someone please enlighten me? Part of me now questions whether the global warming thing is really about sun sport variations or cycles (or whatever they are called). I hope the moderators don't slam me for taking this in a new direction.
  4. Someone named Moderator got after me about my posting here. I can't delete it, but I am apologizing. The next time I see something so poorly written, I will try to forgive the writer for being so incompetent. Apologies to all for my bad behavior.
  5. I continue to be amazed at how inept some people are. Why advertise something happening in December in the month after? Why are you wasting my time? Yes, the words in the text say the right date, but the title doesn't. I think the NewsLady should just reject crap like this. How can I believe anything that is written by this guy?
  6. Hopefully you know this from having read a thriller novel, and not from first hand experience.
  7. Sielmpre, I do not know what you are saying. Too obtuse for my brain. Leaving substantive replies to others more capable than me. The main reason for replying is that I do not see anyone attacking you. It appears that you interpret disagreement or alternative views as an attack. My opinion is that doing so benefits no one. I am very curious as to why you posted your latest in the manner that you did. It appears to be a scanned printout from a word processor rather than just typing your words directly into this forum. Am I missing something here? Hope you have a better day tomorrow.
  8. Dear PAJ, There is a lot of food for thought in your reply. Thank you. Several year’s ago I finally absorbed the FACT that there are many, many different kinds of cancers. My conclusion from that awakening included awareness that lumping all cancers into one bucket is doing everyone a disservice, maybe even damaging them. Is the American Cancer Society really working on a cure for all cancers? I hope so, but have my doubts. Read what Wikipedia says about the ACS: The ACS is organized geographically. Huh??? Shouldn’t it be organized based on biophysics or cytopathologies? Your last sentence was something that I never considered before. I need time to think about that statement. Wow! Not sure what the the real solution will be, but I do hope it comes soon.
  9. This sounds like good news. Just curious what the tip-off was. Inquiring minds want to know.
  10. Lost/Found Dog in Brisas Boqueteñas

    All’s well that ends well.
  11. According to the dictionaries that I use, that is not a correct statement. “...expressing dissatisfaction, pain, uneasiness, censure, resentment, or grief; finding fault...” or “...expressing pain, dissatisfaction, or resentment...”, etc., etc. You were complaining. The first half of that sentence was correct IMO, but there is nothing that I’ve seen that says you can’t start another topic. On the second part of that sentence, I am disappointed to read that you think so little of my interest or capacity to engage conversationally in certain subjects. Maybe I should go back into my cave so as to spare the community of my shortcomings. Thank you for your decision. Sorry. Nope. That ain’t gonna happen. P.S., sorry about the delay in seeing your reply. The last several days have been busy for me.
  12. A couple of years ago I got one at La Casa de Batterias in David. The store is located on the corner of two 1-way streets. From town center (the main parque) if you are directly in front of the church, then keep going on that 1-way street toward the airport. When you get to a stop sign for what I am told was the first 1-way street in David, then look on your left. They even tested the old battery, and installed and tested the new one. Nice people and reasonable prices. Sometimes very busy.
  13. When Good News Goes Bad

    Sounds like they failed the test.
