Linda, aka the David Shopping Diva, found Bamvol’s new home. To get there, turn onto Avenida Domingo Díaz from Calle Miguel Ángel Brenes (that is right by the Mitsubishi dealer) and drive to the next corner. You will see Acer Comp on the right side at the corner. Turn left and on your right is Bamvol. It appears to be a little smaller than the old location, but it also appeared that they might be adding more space in the rear.
Grisoft, the company that provides AVG anti-virus software, is now providing a new anti-spyware product (ewido anti-spyware) as well. Ewido is removing more of those nasty tracking spy wares than Spybot and Lavasoft.
You can download it for free and try it out. If you like it you can pay $30 for a year’s license. Or you can continue to use it without having the online monitor and you will need to do a manual update of new spyware signatures. I do the later and find it to be a great addition to Spybot and Lavasoft. These are three good free products.
If you want to try it out, you can download it by clicking here.
As you can see the outside of TGI Friday’s is going to be complete by the end of the month. I took a peak inside and I am sure there is at least a month’s work there. September is a safe bet.
I stopped by the ballpark today and watched the teams work out. The last time I went to the park, I didn’t notice the billboard that has the prominent location directly in center field.
I am still trying to interpret this sign. It could be encouraging the batter to hit the ball toward the billboard catcher’s mitt and get a home run. It could be telling the base runner to be careful when sliding into home and to keep his head up. It could be telling the men in the stands that an Atlas beer will make any catcher look like this.
All I know is that if there had been catchers like this when I played baseball, I wouldn’t have given it up for basketball.
Back to the practice on the field. I watched for probably about an hour and a half as several different age groups went through their warm up exercises. Each age group was working out on different parts of the field.
Here are a couple photos of the main field workouts.
Beside these groups there was another group working out behind each of the right and left field bleachers. Panama takes baseball very seriously. One of the more famous professional players from Panama was Rod Carew who grew up in Gaton, Panama. I am sure that everyone I saw on the field today is hoping he can be another Rod Carew.
Watching their workout really wore me out. I had to trick my mind into thinking that when I got home the catcher on the billboard would be there, just so I had an incentive to make the hot walk home. She wasn’t, but it did make the walk take less time.
There are several small farmers markets all around David. There is one real large market close to Oteima. This one is just down the street from the Super Baru. They have just about any fresh fruit and vegetable you could want.
Remember the other day when I took this photo of the Kia Sorrento that was barely on the risers?
Well, today I am happy to report that the Kia has been moved and is on a solid footing.
Do you think that the Silba management read Chiriqui Chatter and told them to do a better job because the world was watching? It could happen!
Seems like there are always cyclists training for a future race. As these fellows passed and saw the camera, they all waved.
See anyone you know?
What more can one ask than to have a lawn mower that is self propelled, creates it own energy from the grass it is consuming and then fertilizes the lawn so that the cycle can start over.
A reader of Chiriqui Chatter has a large villa for sale in Valle Escondido and has asked if I would mention her website. Here it is.
