  1. Dear Chiriqui Lifers, I recently read a rather long and convoluted forum posting about something or other, and there was a lot of stuff in it, and some back-and-forth, and much "quoting", then followed by much "re-quoting", which was either construed or mis-construed, and then there was a bit of a rhubarb, with postings and ripostes, and it seemed as though some feathers were ruffled and a bit of fur flew, and there was the requisite "blah-blah-blah", and an imbroglio instigated investigation of intolerance, and civility was verging on civil war, with families and friendships torn akimbo
  2. Hola, ChiLis, It's been a while since I've enriched all your lives with wisdom and enlightenment but since it seems that the World will be ending the day-after-tomorrow-ish, I just wanted to say thanks for all the info shared relevant to those green, green hills; and I hope that whosoever may be leading our souls as they rise from this vale of tears will guide us onto the sendero that leads to the good place -- which, in all likelihood, will closely resemble Chiriqui Province . I bet we'll all be singing in per-fect har-mo-ny. Be careful, out there ... Dav
  3. Personally speaking, I'm fond of the "dislike" feature, but eschew the "like" component.
  4. Just loving life while lamenting loss, and praying for rain! (i'm starting to feel like James Taylor. The EARLY J.T.! We've seen the first part, it's time for the second part!!) Wishing all continuing ease and grace, Dav
  5. I am shattered to hear this news. I've been patiently awaiting the emergence of the right Charismatic Leader to whom I could become a loyal, unquestioning henchman. I feel I was born to be a boot heel, lick-spittle lackey. Are there any other top-secret compounds in those hills I should know about? Still searching, wryawry
    Hey, Bill, drinking it in or spewing it out? Only YOU know the truthiness! Dav
  6. Nice photojournal, Hil, and thanks for sharing. It appears that Edna has more artifacts on display in el museo now than she did ten years ago. The history of her family's care of Sitio Barriles, and some of the conflicts that were fomented by outside archaeologists and "officials" was disheartening, challenging, and extraordinarily complex for the family. That they were able to preserve what they have is a testament to their tenacity and their genuine love and respect for the site and its remaining treasures. I personally enjoyed the opportunity, several times, to wander the quiet little
  7. Thanks for these links. I've been thinking that maybe I'd like to try living as a broad. This will certainly afford a better perspective on time, happiness ... and hairstyle! Where can I find the appropriately-sized clothing? I'll be needing size eleven heels.
  8. Dear Ex-Pat Community, Many publications, such as International Dining, have presented numerous articles about interesting topics such as importing recipes and menu ideas from foreign lands into places like Panama. The question is, if you are going to try to bring items like, say, Mexican food into your diet while being a guest in Panama, are you going to do it right? Let's say that you've decided to spice-up your diet with, say, chilis rellenos. Do you have the right ... stuffing? It takes a lot of hard work and preparation and planning to ensure that you've got the right stuffing, other
  9. Sorry, Hil. I made a mistake. When I said "The Potentate of Potrerillos", I meant "The Plenipotentiary of Potrerillos." Something like that. One of those things.
  10. I shall henceforth model my life based upon the pursuit of the pinnacles of perfection presented within the precepts of ... The Potentate of Potrerillos.
