  1. Curious why you are bringing in US political crap into this news feed? Better still, onto this website? I come here to get away from that crap and you stick it back into my face.
  2. It doesn't feel like the right thing to be doing or supporting.
  3. That link worked just fine for me. I'm not a sports bar type person, so prob won't go there. But I do like ribs. Hmmmm, I guess I have a decision to make here.
  4. I've never heard of an "association" in Panama. SAs and foundations, yes, but associations, no. Or are you just being a bit loose with terminology? Can you elaborate a bit more on the structure and advantages of an association. Are there tax advantages for me if I were to contribute/donate?
  5. Been trying to Google research these fruit things. Not finding anything. Can someone give some links so that I can read more?
  6. Oops. Because you don't have the challenges that I have. I now see the subject saying the full story. Forgive me.
  7. Geez, this can be interpreted two different ways. One is that Mort's Bakery is closing early on one day for a graveside service in honor of Mort. The other way is that Mort's Bakery is permanently closing. Nothing is mentioned about opening back up the next day, or ever? Which is it? I really do hope that Mort's is going to continue in business.
  8. Nice write-up, but missing some critical information. Where the heck is this place?
  9. Maybe I having a bad day or need to adjust my meds. Am I using play money when I pay the bill at a restaurante? It looks and feels like real money to me.
  10. Gotta disagree with ya. People don't get to pick which laws apply to them. If you do believe that then you are above the law. Only courts get to decide when and to what degree a law applies or doesn't apply in a specific case of where there is a claimed violation. I thought you were the warden here. Seems like you should have that concept down pat. The next time I get stopped for speeding, my response will be that the warden told me that the law doesn't apply to rich gringos. That will go over big time. After they stop laughing, then I still get to pay the ticket.
  11. You seem to be confusing different technologies for water heaters. On-deman systems don't have a tank. So why are you talking about tank size?
  12. I was in the meeting with the ambassador last week. Actually what he was said about 4,500 US expatriates in the Chiriqui province, not Boquete. Not a big deal here, but he was trying to make a point that only 297 of them have registered for the Step program. Nothing wrong with using the same number for Marie Elaine's purpose. But on the other hand, JohnF makes a good point. I go further to sugtgest that if someone is a border hopper then they likely are on a smaller budget and they would be onthe low end of spending money here. To my way of thinking, this issue is not so much about the financial impoact on Panama, but rather the country has a right to determine its policies. As a guest in their country (you are a guest if you are not a citizen, be you a resident or a tourist), then we should respect their right to determine their policies.
  13. You gotta be kidding. This is a joke, right? $35.00 per person for a brunch. These people should apologize for this outrageous line of thinking. And to add insult to injury, the jubilados discount doesn't apply. How do they get around the law?
