  3. Like new...with box, cables, cover...16 GB....White. I bought a new iPad Pro and am selling this one which is in excellent condition. $100 Call Penny Ripple at 6948-8255 or write chiriquiwoman@gmail.com. iPad 2.htm
  4. Yes, it's true...but I've managed to find a spot at the car wash across the street, or at Sugar & Spice when they are closed (Wednesdays at after 6 other days), or even on the side streets. Once I parked in the back lot of Fundadores and walked the short block. No matter what...the food is worth the hike. Check this attachment out....
  5. We ate there last night and it was GREAT!! Super food, good menu, service and price is right!! Where Parmesiano's used to be....across from Sugar & Spice, across the bridge from Fish House. Ate on the deck....give it a try. Keep them in business.
  6. We now have 27 people signed up for the Travel Industry gathering we will be planning for those who have worked in the travel industry (including airline, cruise line, tour operator, travel agency, flight controllers, meetings and conventions, etc. etc.).

A few ex-travel industry employees (airline, cruise line, hotel, tour operators, FAA flight controllers, travel agents, meetings & conventions professionals, etc.) are planning a gathering to meet and get to know others who worked in this field. If YOU or someone you know worked in the travel industry and would like to gather with like-experienced people who have moved to Panama, please click on the "TRAVEL INDUSTRY FUN" link in the notice below to complete a brief survey and SUBMIT it to us. Then, stay tuned for more details once we know how many people will attend. TRAVEL INDUSTRY FUN (click here to take the brief survey to let us know you are interested) Penny Ripple - 6948-8255
  8. In the Box...never opened. HP OfficeJet Pro 6830 All-in-One Color Photo Printer with Wireless, Instant Ink enabled. Ink cartridges included. Listed on Amazon for $105. Will sell for best offer. Penny Ripple - 6948-8255
  9. I have an envelope to the IRS that must get in the mail by April 15. Is anyone going to the US who could take this and mail it for me? Penny Ripple - 6948-8255
  10. Yes, this was Delicios Del Andes...next to La Posada...always empty, right? Well, that will change soon because it is DELICIOUS! The decor and waitress are the same, but the food is waaayyyy better and the prices reflect that. I've eaten there twice now, and tonight I've requested it for my special birthday dinner with Jim. I'm going to have the Langostina Newburg....and the Princess Chicken is great too. With this and RetroGusto in town, we've got some great choices. And, yes...there is an Oferta Simple coupon that is available now...see link below. https://ofertasimple.com/ofertas/panama/comidas-bebidas-mar-de-grau-boquete-chiriqui-21ene16-2p
  11. For days I have been wading through the mire of what is happening to DirecTV service and their satellite. I have located another source for DishNetwork and have heard from several that they are interested. Here's the latest: The PR Directv service provided by Gladys Archer has been going down for the last few weeks...first one home, then another...while some are still receiving a signal. Gladys sent an email saying that the satellite was 15 years old and they are replacing it with one that will no longer serve Panama. I spoke with Michael Delgado (the other PR Directv provider) today and he reports that he is not having problems with the satellite. He is going to call Gladys and find out what is happening to her, and will get back with me. They use the same satellite, so this all seems so strange. My question is: PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO PR SERVICE THROUGH MICHAEL DELGADO AND REPORT IF YOU ARE HAVING ANY PROBLEMS, OR IF YOU HAVE LOST THE SIGNAL. chiriquiwoman@gmail.com If indeed Michael Delgado can still provide service without problem, it is a much less expensive alternative to the new installation of the DishNetwork guy, who is coming here next week to do installations. We were almost ready to send him a $375 deposit (50%) when I decided to talk to Michael Delgado about this. I will report to you what Michael tells me after he talks to Gladys. So....I am just trying to figure out what the truth is about the various satellite TV providers. I do NOT need any information about the wide variety of internet sources for TV since our internet speed is very slow and cannot handle all the buffering. So please don't tell me about IPTV or your type of internet TV. That's not what this is about. We're ONLY interested in information from anyone about their current satellite service. Thanks...please respond right away, as tomorrow is our deadline for a decision on DishNetwork. chiriquiwoman@gmail.com

  13. I am gathering names for those interested in receiving DishNetwork in English satellite TV service here in Boquete. I am in touch with this company and when I have a list of names, I will contact them about coming to Boquete to do installations. Learn more about the service at http://www.usatvsatfrompanama.com/. If interested, email me at chiriquiwoman@gmail.com. Penny Ripple
  14. I'm gathering names for those who are interested in DishNetwork here in Panama. Go to http://www.usatvsatfrompanama.com/ to learn about this. I am in touch with Alberto there and when I have a list of names of those interested, I'll get with him to organize installations. Better to give him a big list to make coming to Boquete worth his time, rather than one of us at a time. Let me know if you are interested in this. chiriquiwoman@gmail.com
