Real stories from the Hogar – All Alone

Some of our most complicated cases come from Taisha and surrounding area, deep in the Amazon. Many of them do not speak much Spanish, their native language is Quechua, nor have they been outside their communities. So, when a baby is sick and must be rushed to Cuenca, things could get quite scary and uncomfortable for the parents. We have established connections with community representatives in many of these communities.

We received a call from The Cantonal Board of Macas that a 15-year-old mother was at the hospital with her 4-month-old son, who was in serious condition with pneumonia. Although, they had given her instructions to come to the Foundation, no one had heard from her for days. Oscar, our patient coordinator, found her sleeping on a hospital chair, scared, being alone in an unknown city.

Young, underage mother’s is one of our targeted priorities and we provide a safe place for them, counselling and support. You can support young mothers by donating at: https://www.givingway.com/donate/fundacion-hogar-de-esperanza or for other options, including a tax receipt or bank transfer: https://hogaresperanza.org/en/donations/ Thank you for your support.

Wes the Mentalist, success in Vilcabamba

Total donations for various charities over the last 6 weeks now stands at $1700.
The wild and crazy, quirky, friendly, generous patrons at Carro Azul donated $580 to New Life and other charities.

The founder of Cuenca Soup Kitchen was my host. Bob Higgins continues to touch the lives of the needy and the well-to-do.

I highly recommend the best chicken I’ve ever tasted anywhere, even better than my Grandma’s. And that’s saying something.

When in Vilcabamba, enjoy the cuisine and hospitality at Nancy’s Blue Car.
I was raised in WV, the Mountain State. The twisty, curvy, bumpy…fallas geológicas…brought back pre-interstate highway days of my youth.

John Denver could just as easily have been singing about the Valley of Longevity.
Almost Heaven!

Feeling that there’s no way out he decides to kill himself by jumping off a bridge near the city. Instead of drowning though he ends up on a tiny island underneath the bridge. Unable to swim he finds himself stranded on the island. At the same time, a second story unfolds, about a young woman who’s afraid to go outside, who discovers the man on the island and watches him through her camera from her apartment.

Gentle leader, head halters for dogs

So you tried the Easy-Walk harness and it didn’t measure up to the challenge? That happens. Some dogs pull harder than others. Then it’s time to consider a head halter. This is not a muzzle! It is a simple cloth band that fits around a dog’s nose and attaches to a leash below the chin. The operating principle is that when you pull a dog’s nose downward his body stops thrusting forward. So simple.

Now, at first your dog will probably not cotton to this new nose-wear. That’s normal. I always say, it’s like you wearing a ring on your finger if you’ve never worn one before. At first, it’s all you can think about. But in time, it bothers you more when you’re not wearing it.

The thing to do is to introduce your dog to the halter. Let her sniff it. Then next time, maybe put it on her nose without attaching a leash. And finally, attach the leash.

Notice in the pic below, it’s only the dachshund-mix who needs one. You never know.

I have lots of head halters made by Gentle Leader in sizes S, M and L. I even have an XL.

Please call or email me for more information.

Reminder from Bernan’s Home Canned Foods

We just wanted to remind you of our yellow sweet corn shipment from Cotacachil. We will be getting more of their delicious corn either the end of this month or beginning of next month. It all depends on Mother Nature and how fast the corn is ready for harvest. They harvest the corn in the morning and it’s on its way here that very afternoon! This month I got an advance notice so I can notify all of you and start taking your orders.

If you have never tried this corn and like sweet corn, you don’t know what you’re missing. Even after freezing, it tastes just like the corn we got from Iowa. With the holidays coming up it might not be a bad idea to order yours while you can. After only 1 week I have taken orders for over half of what I thought we would be needing. The cost is $1 an ear.

Along with this delicious sweet corn we also have a full pantry. If you would like a new product list, just let me know and I’ll be happy to send one to you. Want to be on our mailing list? Let me know and I can add you to our list. Each month I send out a monthly flyer along with a current product list. I’m sending out just over 150 each month so adding you would be no trouble at all.

Thanks so much,

Jacqueline and her staff are knowledgeable and up-to-date on all the filing rules for your tax refund. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They can also advise in business accounting.

Recommendation for Paw Lovers, pet care

We took our two girls, aged one-year and 15-years, to get their nails trimmed and some much-needed attention. The owner, Paola, spoke English and was great to work with. She is studying Veterinary Science and is passionate about her love for animals. Their “Spa Day” took a bit over an hour and when we went to pick them up they looked and smelled fabulous. They were treated like royalty from end to end. We got way more than we expected for much less than we expected to pay. We will be bringing the girls back regularly.

If you love vegan food, this is the place to visit

The other day, I went with my vegan daughter to the new Nandala Vegan Restaurant. We were greeted at the door by a the most cheerful, thrilled-to-see-us waiter who seated us at a lovely table for two in a bright, cheery, dining space. At another table, friends Dean and Roberta were seated, and already placing their order. We all knew “it’s a new restaurant”, but we were up for the challenge! We all ordered different plates, and we were not disappointed!! I am not one to rave about restaurants, but this time, I just can’t help myself. Service, presentation, quantity, flavor, flavor, flavor…all 100%. The vegan mayonnaise was to die for. The best I have ever tasted!

If you are up for a vegetarian/vegan taste treat, get on over to,

Nandala Vegetarian Restaurant.
Florencia Astudillo 1-28 and Av. 12 de Abril
They are closed on Sundays, but open Monday thru Saturday
