  1. I think that if Chiriqui.life does not want fundraising posts such as these unless they include all the information that Fran asks for that they should not be re-posted here by News Boquete. Perhaps you need to take this up with Admin.This will eliminate all the negativity and innuendo directed toward agencies who have done good work in the community, but did not do such a great job posting an announcement for a fund-raiser. If News Boquete believes a post is suspicious (asking for money which will not be used for the benefit of the community), they certainly have the right to refuse to pos
  2. I don't understand why a fundraising announcement posted on News Boquete should include the agency's complete history because it is re-posted on Chiriqui.life. First of all, it is a fundraiser, not a request for donations. Second; it is an agency that has been around for a several years. Third: if you are suspicious, check it out by all means, but I really do not understand all the negativity. Just because you do not know about a charitable organization who chooses to announce their fund raiser on News Boquete does not mean they need to give a full accounting of who they are and what they do
  3. Volunteering. In some ways, it's a tricky business. Just like a paying job, a volunteer needs to balance what they give with what is given back to them. If it isn't a good fit for some reason, then you start making excuses not to go. You're late one day, and then the following week you don't show up at all. What do the experts say about volunteering? I read a bunch of articles and took away four gems. To volunteer, find your passion, your talent, and go from there. The good folks at Amigos de Animales have been working with volunteers for a long time and most peopl
  4. Monsanto bullies and intimidates farmers (please read the following links). If their products are so safe, why are they opposed to labeling them? Consumers have a right to choose for themselves based on reliable information about the products they are buying. Even if the science says GMO products are not harmful, (and I'm not convinced) consumers have the right to know what they are buying. I try not to buy GMO products, in part because of the bullying tactics of Monsanto. That is my choice, and the US legislature should not protect Monsanto from labeling their goods. http://www.vanityf
  5. Great music, talented singers, yummy food, and delectable drinks. No cover charge. This coming Saturday at la Villa in the Hex room at BCP. You're going to love it. Dr. Rhody's Medicine Show.
  6. Dr. Rhody's Show at La Villa at BCP Hex room is going to be a great time. Singers like Jeanne Brown, Kent McNaughton, McKayla Chase and Bob Moyle will be there, with a huge variety of songs to sing. Lucy will be serving sandwiches, desserts, wine, beer , coffee and fruit drinks. There is no cover charge, and if you want to get up and sing you are most welcome to. It starts at 6:00 PM Saturday, May 28th. There is no cover charge, and this is going to be one hell of a musical experience.
  7. Wow, regarding all those fer de lances. YIkes. They are so lethal and aggressive. Never have seen one-- thank god. Be careful.
  8. What happened to your neighbor who was bit on the hand by the fer de lance? Did he go to the hospital? If it was a true fer de lance, he would be hospitalized now and lucky to be alive. Are you sure it isn't a false fer de lance, which is non-toxic? From Wikipedia: Bite symptoms include pain, oozing from the puncture wounds, local swelling that may increase for up to 36 hours, bruising that spreads from the bite site, blisters, numbness, mild fever, headache, bleeding from the nose and gums, hemoptysis, gastrointestinal bleeding, hematuria, hypotension, nausea, vomiting, impaired consciou
  9. I've lived here 13 years, have seen 8 scorpions in the past month, am phobic of them and kill them every chance I get. It depends a lot on where you live, I guess. I freely admit that JudyS is a better person than I am. It is not that they are aggressive, but they get in your bed, bathroom, in dark places, and they are stupid and will crawl on you and when you see them and try to get rid of them they will sting. And it hurts. The more you let them breed, the more you will have them. Grubers is great if you are stung. The Panamanians have a white powder (some sort of culandero) that they
  10. http://www.ask.com/pets-animals/lavender-repel-scorpions-28979960ad9c2b94 I love the smell of lavender and it really works for me. I buy the lavender essential oils that you can get at the BCP market and I think HArmony shop., and probably Arrocha and Conway in David. I dilute it with water and spray dark places, my clothes, drains and anyplace else scorpions can lurk. Do on a regular basis. You can also call pest control company, but in between times, , I advise filling the sweet smell of lavender in your home . If you can find real lavender plants, let me know. Then you can plant
  11. I think you can usually get it at the Tuesday Market at BCP. That's where I got mine a about a year ago. Other than that not sure- Arrocha?
  12. I use lavender essential oils or you can use the dry plant to repel lots of insects (look it up) including scorpions. I spray it on clothes in shelves to keep moths away. Easy, cheap, and smells good.
  13. As I have said before, Brandy, I will always remember your kindness to me on a personal level a few years ago, and I think what you do for babies is wonderful! Keep on keeping on!
