Hello World

I am about to get my act together and most of my ToDo list has been worked off. I thought I would let everyone know that Lilliam, Koki and I are well and adjusting to being in Texas.

I have a few posts that I will be preparing in future days that I thought might be of interest.

First I thought I would discuss the Green Card process that Lilliam went through to allow us to move to the US. All in all, it took over 18 months. When I first started the Embassy said it should take 6-9 months.

Another topic I thought might be of interest was how we got some of our Panama items shipped to Texas. Getting things to Panama is much easier than taking them out. Then we also had to take care of all the paperwork to allow Koki to come with us.

Lastly, I thought I might go over our search for a place to live, adjustment to Texas weather, prices in general compared to Panama and maybe a few other items that may enter into my mind as I start writing.

I still have a lot of writing, I had done about living in Panama, in preparation for a book that I may get back into. After 15 years in Panama, experience moving there and moving back, and several years of Embassy cases, I do have enough for a book. I will see what motivates me.

It has been interesting having so much going on that I have had no time to blog. In Panama, I spent a lot of time blogging about life there and working on embassy cases to keep me busy.

In Texas, I am almost in overload with getting settled, finding a house and filling it with furniture and technology. The good thing is it is new and everything I have bought has been good quality. I am having a hard time keeping my finger off the “click to buy in Amazon” button.

When you can look on the Internet, see what you want and order it and get it in 2 days, it is almost addictive.

At any rate, I thought I would see if I still had any readers left and see if any of my thoughts produce any comments.

By the way, my taxes are done. It is amazing how much easier it is when all the documents get to you in a timely basis.

Just When You Thought It was Safe to Go Into The Water

You should read the following article. https://www.androidcentral.com/hide-yo-kids-hide-yo-wi-fi-cuz-they-hacking-errbody-here

If you live in Panama and typically use WiFi at public places, you should be even more concerned. The fix will require a ROM fix for all WiFI routers and many public places in Panama will never update their routers.

All hardware vendors should be providing fixes soon. This is probably the most serious security hole that has been found to date.

If you have a home router providing Wifi, then you will need to watch your router manufacturer for a ROM update. Google should be providing a software fix for its OS soon.
