  2. This weekend they will have a market with 53 art makers and different stands.
  3. All computers have been sold except #8 and #1 (desktop)
  4. I've long thought that there are extraterrestrials hiding among the expat population in Boquete. Not sure about the "intelligence" part.
  5. until
  6. Who in their right mind would go to the Fish House Restaurant in downtown Boquete and not eat fish? During many years enjoying their fish and chips I kept hearing people talk about their beef meals -- hamburgers, steaks, etc. So, a couple of months ago I ordered the cheese steak. Now, I have to tell you I've had Philly Cheese Steaks from the original provider in Philadelphia. Never did I expect a sandwich so big and so delicious. Chock full of tender beef, sauteed onions and green peppers. It was delicious and very inexpensive. I've now had 4 occasions to order this sandwich and I can never eat it all. It's a delicious lunch the next day. The Fish House is a wonderful little restaurant right on the river. The atmosphere is welcoming, the waitress is wonderful, and the prices are dirt cheap.
  7. More information about Franc's last days from his landlady, Penny Ripple: For the many residents of Boquete, this is a very sad day. Our friend and neighbor, Franc Lugo, passed away at 9:39 last night in the Regional Hospital. The cause of death was Sepsis, which he developed after 3 surgeries, including the loss of his left leg and repair to an aneurysm in an abdominal aorta. Please send your prayers to Isabel and her family, and to his son in the US, who is recovering from a recent motorcycle accident and does not know about his father’s passing.Franc lived on our property for the last few years, as our friend and caretaker. We will all mourn his passing…he was one wonderful guy!
  8. I was just informed that our friend Franc Lugo died at Hospital Regional. Franc was in the hospital for deep vein thrombosis which resulted in the amputation of his leg and then resulted in an aneurysm which was operated on. Franc will be remembered fondly by the Boquete Community.
  9. Franc was also the voice of Alto al Crimen for several years and an awesome trivia team partner.
  10. Posted on Facebook this morning: It is with a heavy heart that I, Brenda, am sharing with you the news that my mother, Andrea, passed peacefully at 9:12 am yesterday 1/14/2021. She was surrounded by her family; Brenda, Christina, Donn, Senor Gomez and her dear friend Leigh, who brought with her 5 years of hospice experience. Andrea was loved by all that knew her & will be greatly missed. Andrea loves her country & honors The Constitution of the United States. Prior to her passing, she was troubled to see the selective censorship occurring in the media. It broke her heart to see how influential this censorship was in her homeland, and the division it caused between friends, family & loved ones. To show her strong support for our First Amendment Rights, one of her last requests was that I remove her from all social media accounts, including Facebook. I will leave her account open for a few days to allow time for comments prior to deletion of this account. Thank You All for your Love & Support. May God Bless You All With Love, Brenda
  11. I have an idea -- create a new email address identical to the wrong one on the web site. You only need to use this address every two years when you renew. Actually, maybe in two years we'll be done with this covid situation and can just go in person to renew our license.
  12. Calling the theater Boquete Community Playhouse (or Theater) is the ideal solution. Thanks again for everything you and Joe do for the community.
  13. I think you guys have found the ideal solution. Calling it the Boquete Community Playhouse is perfect. And I agree that the theater should not be allowed to go dark. Thank you Joe and Linda.
  14. No disrespect to ACCB which has done wonderful work raising money for local charities . . . . however, I don't think it's right that they are calling the theater in the Tap Out building "the ACCB theater". BCP built that theater. They put thousands and thousands of dollars and uncountable man hours of labor into that theater. I think that contribution should be respected by calling it the BCP theater.
  15. Excellent review. They bent over backwards serving us. Bud forgot to mention that, in addition to the free dessert, they also served us a free appetizer which was some kind of ground up olives and garlic in an oil base. Everything was good. My carbonera dish was too much to eat in one sitting but it made a delicious breakfast the next morning.
  16. I also loved the calzones at Papa Ricco's when they were on my way home across from the feria. A guy named Bill White owned it after Ricco died in a car accident. The new place in El Alto is totally out of my way. Darn !!🤐
  17. Hal died many years ago. His assistant Michael ran the store until the Kindle killed it. You can buy the entire store inventory for a couple of thousand dollars.
  18. There's a Ramtec store in Plaza Terronal?? Since when and where is it located? I went shopping for a washer yesterday and went to Do It Center, Price Smart and Rodelag. All the washers they had were digital with multiple circuit boards. Not what I needed. Then I drove to the Ramtec store down by the park and it was closed up tight. So tell me about this Ramtec store in Plaza Terronal. It must be new. By the way, I ended up buying my washer at La Reyna. Paid more than I wanted but they had a good selection and what I wanted.
  19. Send a text WhatsAp to Axel at 6989-9615. He speaks English and has painted two exterior houses and one interior house for me. I pay him $25/gallon and that includes all the prep work and the cleanup. If it's a big job he can bring his brother Joel who is also a good worker.
  20. DeWALT DC988 Heavy Duty 1/2 18V Cordless Hammerdrill plus charger. You will need to purchase a new DeWalt or generic battery or a battery rebuild kit. This tool sells new on Overstock.com for $150.28 plus shipping. The Boquete Handicap Foundation will guarantee this hammer drill for 60 days. You can purchase the DC988 for $70 including charger. To purchase email Penny at pjbarrett@aol.com or text WhatsAp 6510-8934.

  22. I've been told that all available slots in June and July have been scheduled and they haven't released the August schedule yet. My suggestion is to keep trying because some people cancel their appointment and that time slot will open up. Eventually they will start to make August appointments.
  23. Dra. Diaz told me yesterday that there was a new case in Jaramillo. She agreed with me that there have been no deaths to date in the entire Boquete District.
  24. I went to the David bus terminal yesterday and spoke to the only employee there -- a security guard. He told me there is only one daily bus going to Panama City and it leaves David at 9 AM. I assume the passenger would have to have a salvo conductor pass to board the bus.
  25. Two questions: 1. How often is the bus going from Boquete to David? 2. Are there any buses going from David to Panama City. If yes, how often and what times? Thanks so much
