Watch Mayweather vs. McGregor Live stream Mega Fight Boxing match 2017

Mayweather versus McGregor Mega Fight

How about we escape the path before we really begin - UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor won't crush Floyd Mayweather Jr. In a perfect bout. There is no possibility, not even the much-talked about Puncher assortment.

New Dog !

Jim and Charlene Gates-Phillips were closing their Volcan Christian Bookstore and felt led to donate their black Panamanian beagle-mix to me recently. He is an awesome dog and a real blessing.

The basketball Gym is open!

And had been since at least July 1. I met the caretaker, as he is confined to a wheelchair I asked him about wheelchair basketball leagues and he says David has them. anyway, he said the gym is open M-F from 8 AM to 7 PM, but that the most activity by far is from 5 PM - 7 PM.

I dropped by 1 day to watch and the play was half-court at each end, with some very competitive play at one end and the other end was little kids to girls to older established players - come as you are !

Board Gamers in Boquete ?

I know from old posts that there is or was a Mike Peterson was a US Chess Federation Chess Master, but I haven't seen any posts since he gave a simul. 3 or 4 years ago. I am not too bad at chess, being a 2-time WV champ 40+ years ago.

I really was hoping there were some more social games going in Chiriqui, such as Settlers of Catan, or Pandemic / Pandemic Legacy.

Friend me and contact if there is any interest in these types of things. Keep the mind…

Do you know how to knit a simple hat?

The Handicap Foundation of Boquete is having fun on Saturday mornings doing yarn crafts with its members and their families...including knitting, embroidery and weaving! 

A small group has learned basic knitting. Some folks have made scarves, and now they'd like to make a simple hat. Do you know how to do this? If so, great! I’m clueless and would like some help! We're talking straight knitting--nothing fancy.

If you have the know-how, then join us on any Saturday from 10…

Friendly Nations Work Permit Question

Can anyone tell me...

Does an Expat who desires to become an airbnb host and rent out a casita located on their property need a Work Permit in Panama ?

The "Other" Boquete Forum

The most recent changes to Panama laws have the expats in a stir.  And it is mostly about nothing.  The blowup started on CL a couple of months ago when some folks could not get their CARE packages from the states. (An aside, Nena's school received actual CARE packages when she was in grade school.)

The shipping business in Boquete notified its clients of a delay in delivery and suddenly the wheels began to come off the wagon. The changes to the law have been in work for about…

Having a main forum for posting is best.

Ning was a hit from the beginning, CL is still looking for members.

CL has 1389 members after 22 months.

Ning had the same number after 2 months.

Probably many of Ning's early members were from where the admin's meddling drove them to look for a better venue.  When Ning's ownership changed, there was not the same flood of members to CL. 

The seemingly endless list of complexities in using CL was a deal breaker for those members wanting the ease of…

MORE DIFFERENCES: Boquete.ning or Chiriqui Life

Privacy Issues:

CL "requires" using your real name when signing up. Perhaps they would also like your home address and maybe SSNumber for good measure. Lucky for members is that they are so naive as to believe that everyone uses their real name.  That same naivete leads them to believe that meeting with the police and becoming pals will somehow cause the police to become better at doing their jobs.

The Invision Power Services community that provides the software for CL actively…

Boquete.ning or Chiriqui Life -- My Experience

This will be an ongoing commentary as events on Chiriqui Life are still developing.

In a nutshell, ning runs closer to the format established by its original owner, Lee Zeltzer. Lee died 2 years ago and the ning was purchased by the current owners as a revenue stream established by Lee to pay for the site and provide additional revenue to…
