  1. CL doesn't "delete" its members. We simply monitor and ensure compliance with the published guidelines and rules. What you have done is cross-reference relevant information from another source, and cite that source.
  2. Thanks, Bonnie. Perhaps I should be less polite in the future and more of a curmudgeon. I'll try to do better. On the other hand, I was taught by my parents that honesty and politeness (in that order) are important personal traits -- for everyone.

  5. Maggie's List (our pet care resource listing) shown above was updated today to Issue 1.15 with the incorporation of the information provided by Judy. Servicarga was added to the Pet Relocation Services category. Thank you, Judy.
  6. Pet Care Resources of the Chiriquí Province (Maggie's List), and Pet Abuse (Issue 1.15, Re-published February 6, 2017 with one addition.) As a lead-in and related topic, there are legal restraints against the abuse of domestic animals in Panama. For those who wish to read the applicable statute, there is a separate topic here on CL that provides both the Spanish and the English language versions of Panama's Law 70, dated 18 October 2012. Here is a link to that topic: http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/2442-animal-protection-act-of-panama/ Below are various categories of resources in the Chiriqui Province that (a) support, (b) provide services or products related to, and/or (c) deal with pets. These resources are listed in alphabetical order based on the category name. Some of the listed resources are not located in the Chiriquí Province, but may be of interest to pet owners while in transit or needing pet relocation services. If you have additional resources that you would like to have included in this resource listing or corrections to information found here, please send your suggestions via email to petvet@chiriqui.life.

  8. Check out: And thanks for your feedback. We do listen.
  9. Thank you for posting this inportant information. I repaired your link to the BJBF website. There was a typo that caused the link to fail. Also those interested in downloading the PDF need to know that CL membership is required to download anything. It doesn't cost anything to register, but membership is required (it is just the way our software works). Best wishes for a successful event. I hear a lot of "buzz" around town that people are excited about this event.

    Tu Bi'Shvat is a Jewish holiday occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat (in 2017, Tu BiShvat begins at sunset on February 10 and ends at nightfall on February 11). It is also called "Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot", literally "New Year of the Trees." In contemporary Israel, the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration.

    Additional information here:
  12. I believe there is a significant date error in this posting. Their words say the event is on Friday, February 4th, but February 4th is a Saturday. Their graphics say the event is on Friday, February 3rd. Note also that this event has been posted on the CL calendar for Friday, February 3rd. My guess is that this is a simple clerical mistake and that the event really will occur on Friday, February 3rd, but then who knows for sure. Perhaps someone involved in the management of this event could clarify.
  13. Welcome aboard, even if only intermittently.

    Posting here to re-queue this event in the activity stream because a lot of additional information has been added to the event details.
  15. This is a minor correction of my prior posting on this subject of the organization of topics related to corruption and fraud here on CL. There actually are four (not three) topics related to corruption and fraud. Apologies for omitting the Mossack Fonseca topic. The four are: related to Mossack Fonsenca and the so-called Panama Papers [at http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/1912-mossack-fonseca-leak-reveals-elites-tax-havens] related to former President Martinelli, his family and close friends [at http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/843-whats-next-for-martinelli-his-familiy-and-associates] related to Odebrecht [at http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/4568-odebrecht-corruption-and-fraud-investigations-prosecutions] related to all other investigations and prosecutions, labelled "miscellaneous" [at http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/3097-miscellaneous-corruption-and-fraud-investigations-prosecutions]

  18. MarieElaine, You might wish to try again using the corrected email address as shown here: radiochiriqui@radiochiriqui.com. Note that I corrected the error in Keith's posting, which was not his fault, but rather an error on the radio station website (www.radiochiriqui.com) itself. Also, their website shows other contact information under the "contact us" tab.
