Now i'm a fisherman

Time to post.

I've decided to update this thing as it has been long time...

Happens that know i'm a fisherman .

One day, I think that it was because some TV program or something, my daughter asked me to take her fishing... On a quick trip vacation to chiriqui, we passed by Bambito hotel where there is a trout farm... easy and lots of fish so a warranty to get something hooked.

6 trout out and in my mind... she has already stractch that itch...

well... some months passed and one day we were running by a sort off superstore down here in Panama and out of the sudden, she just grabbed a rod and stated

This is the one i want.

So of course i got her a rod.. eventually.. But as spected, i got one for me... then everything started. 3 or 4 months has passed and i ended up spending small fortunes on fishing tackle. Everybody has a different way to do stuff... hundreds of options of terminal tackle, lures etc... me been me.. I started to “study about the subject” on-line and off-line.

Panama has good fisheries of peacock bass (locally called “sargento”)...the story goes as some medical doctor had a pond with these fish and by accident the species got introduced into the Chagres river (the one that supply water to the panama canal lake)... as peacock is aggressive, they vanish 6 or 8 local species... and are fun to catch according to the Internet...

I'm not buying flagship phones anymore.

By the time the samsung galaxy s2 (i9100) where released to the market... I did what I could to get my hands on one of these devices. Everything that kick ass about android started with this phone.

  • First one with multi-cores processor
  • first one with 1 gb or ram
  • and I don't remember what else on the list....
however, the point is that this phone was a milestone for Samsung and Google.  And based on the success of the S2, the S3 kicked ass as well as the S4.  So I ended with an S4 Google play edition...and the S2 where given away to my mother...

... on Wednesday evening.. .I dropped the S4  and the LCD got cracked... It didn't matter the expensive protective casing... LCD cracked and the phone is unusable.

As I live in the Republic of Panama, the i9505 is not the S4 of this market... which means no spare parts available.
