Moringa Trees a healthy addition to your yard.

Recently we purchased a Moringa Tree and it is growing so well. The following information is from Web MD.  Where can we buy more trees?

Moringa is a plant that is native to the sub-Himalayan areas of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. It is also grown in the tropics. The leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root are used to make medicine.

Moringa is used for “tired blood” (…

Clock Repair person?

I have several clocks with battery operated quartz movements that

Reprinted opinion piece

Dear Fellow *ningbats.

Due to the current events in Boquete and environs, all interested persons  are recognizing vulnerabilities and seeking answers to questions about personal security and pro-active community planning. Looking at the "big picture" and analyzing socio-economic and cultural phenomena offers valid information for future responses to potentialities.

Pet Immune Outdoor Motion Sensor from Paradox

We've installed quite a few of these, on Paradox installations. The wired version of this sensor could be used on an existing DSC or Honeywell panel. These are wall mount units that can either go on the outside wall of the house, fence wall or on a column. They have a detection range of about 38' on each side (for a total of about 75'). We ran tests with dogs walking into the protected area, and the alarm did not go off - it does though as soon as a human walks in.

looking to buy car

I know you have all heard the following. ( Looking to buy roadworthy inexpensive vehicle) We are arriving in Boquete in middle of Aug and we would truly appreciate anyone letting us know of a vehicle for sale at around 3to5,000. The lower Canadian dollar is making our transition a little more difficult so we have had to rethink our budget.

Thanks Bob

More Hass and Reed Avocados

Reed Avocados


Reed avocados are rich and smooth texture with a full creamy taste. Larger than Hass avocados. Reed produces huge, rounded fruit weighing more than a pound.  The tall, slim trees are excellent producers of softball-size fruit with an incredibly rich, buttery flavor. It is probably the richest flavored avocado in existence.

Great for salads and guacamole.…

The Right to Die

reprinted from The Economist

IT IS easy to forget that adultery was a crime in Spain until 1978; or that in America, where gay marriage is allowed by 37 states and may soon be extended to all others by the Supreme Court, the last anti-sodomy law was struck down only in 2003. Yet, although most Western…
