Greetings from Panama!

Surprise! I know It’s been quite a while since you’ve seen this website active. Probably close to a decade. My wife asked me last night why I reactivated it. I thought about that for a while, and the closest I could come up with to a solid answer is because I enjoy writing. Also, having been living here in the Republic of Panama for the past 18 months or so, I thought I’d share with you.

The most common question I get from my friends in the United States is why did we leave. Well, to make a long story short, we got tired of the rat race in the States. The cost of living and the cost of staying healthy were killing us. Thus, we chose the expat life. We love it here. Frankly, we should have done this way sooner.

Anyhow, for those of you who have been reading my material since I launched the original version of this website about fifteen years ago or so, you won’t find anything here remotely similar to what you may expect. There will be no political or religious articles, rants, or anything of the sort. I don’t argue on the Internet any longer. It keeps my blood pressure down and makes live easier all around.

I hope you enjoy what you will read here on the occasion when I have time to write. Thanks!

  1. Hello Al! Semper fi and how have you been? You seem happy. I was a responder on you posts about 5-7 years ago. I was curious about what happened to you. It’s interesting that you’ve stopped the political and religious articles. I definitely understand. I’ve been living in Japan since 2007. America seems like a foreign country to me now. I’m almost disinterested too. Just wanted to say hello and I have always respected your writing skills. You have made me both think and laugh! Not necessarily in that order. Take care, Marine. JJ

    1. Good to hear from you, JJ. We’ve been in Panama for a while now, and like you, the US is a foreign country. I went back over the holidays to visit friends and family, but other than that, I won’t be going back.
