Without freedom from the past, there is no freedom at all, because the mind is never new, fresh, innocent. by J Krishnamurti

Lilliam and I did make it to the official Porto Fino Inauguration yesterday afternoon. The photo to the left contains the owners of Porto Fino who came from Panama City, and Melissa (a good friend of mine) who manages the store in David. Left to right are Monalisa, Daniela, Claudia, Melissa and Carolina.

They had 10 % off everything in the store and Lilliam has never seen a sale that she could resist buying something. There were lots of good snacks and I think I could have done myself damage if I had stayed too close to the table for too long.

Suspicious Person in El Terronal

Lilliam called to my attention that the individual in the following photos had been walking up and down the street several times. He has the manner of a person that is scouting the neighborhood.

By the time I got my camera, he was at the corner, so I had to call to him to get him to turn around.

The time was between 10:00 A. M. 11:00 A.M. The event has been recorded on the Chiriqui Watch Site.

Gallardo’s Steak & Grill Restaurant

Sunday, we went out to Gallardo’s Steak and Grill restaurant. This is the restaurant that took over the old Ms. Mendoza’s location. The new McDonald’s is getting close to opening beside it.

Apple made an announcement the other day related to education. I have read mixed reviews, but today, I spent a little time watching the Apple Education Event.

By the way, I am writing this post on my iPad after after watching the event on my iPad.

I really enjoyed listening to and watching the event. After watching it, I did download iAuthor which is Apple’s free product to aid in publishing on the Apple. It has some very interesting possibilities. However, those possibilities would not even exist without having the iPad.

Bar none, the iPad was the best piece of technology I have ever bought. I really feel sorry for these that have acquired other technology hoping to have a cheaper equivalent. At the moment it does not exist.

Apple also announced iTunes U. Now this is nothing less than amazing. It is already populated with a large amount of college courses from many leading universities. I have downloaded some on writing.

Please. No wisecracks. I know my writing needs help and it seemed like a good investment for some of my time. Continue reading WOW
