With this post I am announcing that the David Warden position for the U.S. Embassy in Panama is available to be filled.

New business in David

I received a request to post the following new business announcement.

Good Morning Don Ray. I want to thank you for for giving me the opportunity to share with your other readers information about a new business in David. The business’s name is FISER Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center. The owner, Jazmin Abrego, is a licensed Physical Therapist, who’s experience includes 5 years as a Physical Therapist at Chiriqui Hospital. Jazmin uses a variety of therapeutic techniques to treat conditions such as muscle pain, injuries or post operative rehabilitation. She is also the only Physical Therapist in Panama who uses a technique called dry needling, which is similar to acupuncture. I, personally, have used Jasmine’s Physical Therapy services for over a year and I can attest to her knowledge, professionalism, and kind and caring personality Also, she is fluent in English.

Her office is located at Ave 3rs Oesta, Plaza Pinatal, Local #5 in David. Her cell phone # is 6927-1878. Please call for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Thank you.

I was hooked on auctions after only going once …going twice

The only time I don’t eat healthy is when there is unhealthy food available for me to eat.

Botox would probably make me look more approachable and that’s a risk I just can’t take.

Now reached the age where getting lucky is what happens when I can remember where I set my glasses down.

It’s easy to tell when it’s laundry day at my house because I’m walking around in my birthday suit.

I hate when I’m walking on the treadmill for half an hour and look down to see it’s been 4 minutes.
