  1. Great book ! Boquete, Rasgos de su historia. A must read if you live in, and love Boquete
  2. The vaccine is still classified as experimental use only. This means the usual complete scrutiny afforded medications and vaccines has not yet come to full fruition as of right now. The vaccines are not FDA approved. No vaccine for COVID has full FDA approval for general use. That being said, the folks that are hesitant have reason for hesitancy. They have reason to want to have a full disclosure of any ill effect that has already occurred in the vaccinated group. Alison, R.N.
  3. RODNY DIRECT I can not laud Rodny enough for the work he does for our community here and especially for those who do not speak Spanish. Rodny Direct provided the same heroic response for us here when a neighbor and his wife were beaten and robbed in a home invasion. Rodny's handling of the entire situation was beyond the call of duty and we will forever be enormously grateful. I might add...the spouse of our neighbor is a lady who is totally fluent in Spanish, a Panamanian. She was unable to function. I might also add, he went the extra mile as my neighbors who needed help were NOT his clients, we were. Our neighbors immediately subscribed to his service ! When you have a crisis, a cool calm head and a person directing the first-responders is GOLD. He knows exactly who to call and how to deal with the situation. ( any situation......have a car break down in the middle of nowhere?...Rodny will get you a tow truck. City street light out in front of your house?...Rodny can get that reported and attended to) Bill and I consider Rodny Direct an essential necessity here. Alison
  4. Somehow we have to mentally deal with this mind boggling tipsy turvy world that's evolving. Wonder if it strikes us as more horrendous because we are old farts who grew up in the way-back time they now call "mid century modern"........Tune it out, turn on the music and raise hummingbirds. Alison
  5. Very interesting. Tells me that vaccinated or not, protective measures should not be disregarded. It will be interesting to follow this as time moves on. Alison, R.N.
  6. I have them all around the outside of the house as well.. Cheap and very useful. You can get strips but as well small individuals that come in a set of 3 or so. They last a long time.
  7. Thanks for your experiences you shared. Not a bad idea apparently to go home and look up what you plan to purchase before you do, to see if it is a discontinued model. Sometimes I have found when I meet resistance with issues that are covered by ACODECO I just tell the merchant I will file with ACODECO, and begin to walk. Usually I get better cooperation and resolution before I leave the store. I appreciate your story ...thanks !

  9. Andrea was a such a good friend and neighbor. She and Don have been a joy to us in our lives here. We miss her and our hearts are broken. Andrea would not want us to be sad but encourage us to love one another and make the most out of our lives. Here in Boquete ( and esp in our little Brisas community) we are such close family. It's been almost 14 years of friendship....a long time !. That closeness is so special . Now that she is gone, we value it all the much more. Goodbye sweet sister. Rest in Peace. we are coming your way soon. Alison, Bill and Weasel
  10. When I filled out my form neither my husband nor I could find Boquete in the drop-down. Unfortunately we just picked what was close...and of course, wrong. I just went in and now come to find you can not edit. All I can say is....we never found Boquete when filled out the form. JazzMan found it by using Spanish mode rather than the English translation. Eh, I don't really think it matters if you have filled out the form or not. I believe it will be a bit of time before we can receive it here in Boquete; plenty of time to figure out what's really up.
  11. Note: In very small print this is written at the bottom of the form: "This form is intended to manage the registration of those people who are interested in being vaccinated against COVID-19. The registry of those interested seeks to facilitate the procedure and logistics in the distribution and application of said vaccines, take the necessary provisions according to the condition of the person, as well as managing the quantities to be distributed by sector and population density. Lack of registration does not imply exclusion in the vaccination process. The information handled by this registry also consists of validating the data of the interested party as a measure of When filling out the form, it will be taken as a sworn statement about the information provided, which must be truthful,and its sending will be understood as consent for the use of this for the aforementioned purposes and for automatic registration in the single portal www.panamadigital.gob.pa, which will allow you to access the vaccination monitoring process, and other state services in as required, and for the handling and personal use of the interested party for the procedures requested. "
  12. Thank you ! In the middle of COVID, and as busy as you were....you blessed our house with a dog we love. Alison, Bill and Weasel
  13. .......My eyes fail. I did not see anything about plastic bottles. How could that have been missed? ( thank God the cocktail straws will be eliminated ! huge problem) It is heartening that Panama is making a start, albeit slowly.

    Sweet little fellow appeared last night, woke the dog and us....and stayed for a snack and a picture. 13 1/2 years here, and first time to see the fellow
  17. I go to the AMAZON SMILES site but for some reason I can not get it to recognize : Amigos de Animales, Inc Ft Myers, FL Please correct any misspelling that I might have there. Thanks Alison
  18. Nothing has changed as I see it. (The way to protect yourself ) The difference now is that the workplace has opened and as well more freedom to circulate is happening. The fact that the youth ( working age folks) are the spreaders and that asymptomatic spreaders are out there is a national concern as national numbers of cases and deaths rise. A mask will reduce spread but not prevent it. The Health Department here is very concerned about controlling spread. Packed buses, groups celebrating inside drinking alcohol are culprits according to this morning's news. . Time, distance and shielding remain the gold standard right now. Keep distanced, stay masked and reduce time spent inside a closed area. It will no doubt be some time before this ends. We need to stay vigilant as resources here are now being stretched. ( hospital beds/ meds/ staff that are now physically exhausted) Alison, R.N.
