Food donation for dogs

Hello dear expats, We are looking for good people who can help with some donation of dog food or whatever you like. We are taking care of 50 dogs rescued in Cuenca city in very bad condition. Now, they are living better, but we don’t have enough money for food or medicine. There are a few old dogs with arthritis and they need medicine all the time.

The place was located in Monay, now we have moved to Paute to a country house to give a better life to them.

You can see the place anytime you want. Also, there is a little furnished house in the same place where the dogs are. You can stay the weekend or anytime that you like helping with the dogs or if you have just a little relax. The weather is warmer than Cuenca.

Write me at my WhatsApp 098 311 1659 for any donation.

Don’t want to pay kilometers? – Cuenca Car Share

Renting a car can be a hassle because of all the extra charges from the major companies. With Cuenca Car Share for September and October, you can forget about paying for the kilometers because we offer unlimited mileage (in kilometers) for these two months. You also can forget about paying for car insurance, we include it with every rental.

September and October can be beautiful in the mountains or on the coast. Spring is in the air, trees are leafing out once again (those few deciduous trees we have here) and flowers are unfurling. Kites may be flying, too. It’s a great time to rent a car and travel around the country now that the road to Guayaquil has been partially opened once again.

Make your reservations early by contacting me, Emilio.

Cuenca Car Share is your key to explore Ecuador.

You are welcome to join Bert McKinney and friends at noon for Friday Frisbee in Parque de la Madre! Lots of fun! Bring your frisbee, if you have one, and your laugh!

High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Cooperco has numerous offices throughout the city of Cuenca. We have English speaking account personnel that can easily explain our numerous CD options and, more importantly, how Cooperco provides a clear investment advantage. Check us out. Learn how Cooperco can help to make the difference for you. There is a reason that countless individuals as well as many financial institutions invest with us. We may not be the biggest but we are definitely the best. Call or email me for more information.

Cheers.

Chía seeds / Gramm Bulkshop

Dear friends, here are some characteristics of chia

Chia seeds are tiny, but packed with healthy properties to curb inflammation and maintain cholesterol levels.

Chia is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the ideal ratio for the body, which is 3 to 1 (omega-6 and omega-3). Omega 3 can have cardiovascular benefits. Omega 3s can help the body produce DHA, necessary for brain and cognitive function.

What’s Cookin’ at Bernan’s Home Canned Foods

Bernan’s is open once again! Our week in Madrid was just wonderful and we are back and keeping our pantry full of all of your favorites. I just heard from our corn supplier and their fresh yellow corn on the cob from Cotacachi will be available around the first week of October. I have started taking orders and they will be sold on a first come basis. Cost is still $1 an ear. It’s a very popular item and everyone says it tastes just like it came from Iowa.

If you need a new product list let me know and I will be happy to email one to you. Remember if you would like one of our items made especially for you (omitting ingredients or adding some) just let me know. We do just that for several of our customers with great results! The only thing we ask is that you order 4 jars of whatever it is. We can make a ½ batch without any problems, but trying to make only 1 or 2 jars consistently is nearly impossible.

Take care. We hope to see you soon,

Microfiber sheets sale

Microfiber bed sheets are composed of finely woven fibers made from wood pulp, polyester, or nylon polymers. They’re affordable and soft, yet they’re more durable than traditional polyester sheets. As a synthetic fabric, microfiber is less likely to wrinkle or shrink compared to all-natural fabrics like cotton. Microfiber has a smooth and slippery feel, similar to silk or satin. With this in mind, microfiber tends to trap more heat compared to cotton. The heat retention can be great if you live in a colder climate, or if it’s wintertime.

You can choose from our great variety of colors.

Twin Size $26.25

Recommendation for Leonardo’s Landscaping

We were looking for someone to help us with a garden project and happened to see an ad from Leonardo’s Landscaping and Gardening in GP. It sounded like the project was something he could do, so we took a chance and called him. He spoke excellent English and was friendly and knowledgeable, and came the next afternoon, right on time. He brought a crew with him and within a little over 3 hrs. they had bought grape vine trellis posts and all the materials needed, dug the holes for the posts and grapes, planted and installed everything – and we had two rows of grape vine trellises! Leo’s crew was also friendly and capable, and under his direction, everything was done exactly how we had wanted. We’ll be using Leonardo for any and all future garden projects, and recommend him highly.

Made to order: real sourdough, bagels, and authentic Southern biscuits

Hi, Sunday Brunch Cuenca family.

New product alert:
Homemade Southern Biscuit Mix, 2 lbs. for $10

You can make biscuits yourself whenever you need. Just add milk. You can also use as a topping for casseroles, cobblers, and more. Keep in the freezer and just take out what you need.

We now also have ravioli. Our 3-cheese ravioli comes frozen in a pack of 32 for $10. The pasta is homemade. Take out however many you need, boil, and then toss in your own sauce of choice. We recommend 8 per person. So delicious. You can’t beat homemade pasta. We’ve been eating them ourselves with slices of our sourdough.
