Sometimes I just don’t know when to shut down. Last night was a good example. I didn’t go to bed before 3 :30 AM. It would not be a big deal if I were staying up for something worthwhile, but last night, after working on a technical project, I stayed up watching a movie to unwind.
Lilliam is usually my governor and keeps my days in order, but she is in Costa Rica and won’t return until next week. When she is not around, I forget what time it is. When I was young, I could go without sleep better than I can now, so I am sure that I will have to have a nap this afternoon.
So what has been going on? I have visited the stroke victim twice this week. The second visit, I spent several hours with him. His caretake’s father has been released from the hospital after they decided they could not remove a tumor. She needed time to visit him in a hospice he has moved to. I hope that she doesn’t give out with all the stress she is under.
I am not satisfied with the stroke victim’s progress, but I have no control over that. I am also not impressed with C&W’s telephone connection at his apartment. He has been without telephone for two weeks. I had to go by the C&W office and submit a second trouble ticket. If it is not up soon, I will have to make another trip to the office. They need to give him a refund for lack of service. Just another thing you put up with living in paradise.
I guess that has me under a little stress and when I get under stress, I tend to dive into technology to unwind. Continue reading

I pulled the following photos from Jorge Cedeño’s Facebook page. Recent rains have played real havoc in the area of Las Nubes. There have been houses lost, lives lost, and other lives turned upside down. There are many in this area that could use a helping hand.
If you want to help, contact my friend Jorge Cedeño at jlca mana . gmail . com (REMOVE THE SPACES) and he will tell you how you can help. The following is from Jorge’s FB post.
This is part of the devastation left this morning in Las Nubes area, close to Volcan, where we live due to the rains on Sunday night. Many dead and many lost their homes. Please help this community.
UPDATE FOR THOSE OUTSIDE OF PANAMA: Bruce Cornett’s comment below has a way for those outside of Panama to help.
God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
