Making coffee products
We are experimenting with making other items using our coffee. We got the idea for the soap from a lady that used to make it here in Boquete. I went to talk to her about her soap and found out that she is moving back to Florida and will no longer be making it. I have a friend that really likes the soap, so we started researching how to make it ourselves.
The claims to the soaps are: removes odors from hands (like onion, fish, garlic), natural caffeine removes wrinkles and puffiness in skin, removes dead skin by exfoliating and there are a few other benefits that are implied.
We are trying out a few items to see how well they work and how cost-efficient we can make the following items:
Every once in awhile, we go through the fields and knock down all of the dead limbs that are hanging there ready to fall on someone and knock them out. I am sure that our life insurance company appreciates us doing this on a routine basis. :)
Then, one might expect a former firefighter to burn said widowmakers. However, the fire my lovely husband created was a very slow-to-start and slow-to-burn. After many hours, he finally managed to burn or smolder all of the wood. I am sure all of his friends would have made fun of his fire-making skills, so in their absence, I did it for them. :)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
In forestry, the term widowmaker or fool killer describes a detached or broken limb or tree top and denotes the hazards that such features cause, being responsible for causing fatalities to forest workers. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration describes widowmakers as "broken off limbs that are hanging freely in the tree to be felled or in the trees close by."
For my friends that like to see the bugs.....*shaking my head*
Here is another bad, but pretty caterpillar. This time I have included a closer picture of the blue head. We also found 2 other different bugs, but I have no idea if they bite or not.
