Mask wearing

Why is it that the people I see not wearing masks seem to be gringos or expats? Might I remind all that we are guests in this country and should abide by the unwritten laws and customs of this country; which, in this case is, WEAR A MASK please.

US surplus payments not received

I have never received the payment offered last Spring nor the one for last week, either by mail or direct deposit where my SS is paid. I have spent a great deal of time online trying to find the short answer in vain. Has anyone else experienced this or been able to resolve the problem? Thanks for your time.

Instant Pot – Yes, you can find them in Ecuador

Yesterday, someone posted asking if Instant Pots are available in Ecuador.

Instant pots recently arrived in Ecuador. I’ve seen them in Eljuri. If you’re in Cuenca, there are several Eljuri stores – the most convenient one is on Parque Calderon. They are not the Instant Pot brand, but two other brands.

You’re welcome,

Iris now available for adoption

Iris is an adorable 1.5 year old, medium-size spayed female. She is a manageable 12 kg. She is docile and very good with children and other doggies. She is house trained and walks very well on leash! She has endearing and unique eyes; one blue and the other brown.

Iris was adopted from FAAN as a puppy by an Ecuadorian family who eventually began facing financial hardships. As a result, they recently emigrated to another country. Now Iris is left behind without a family.

Does your family sound like a good fit for Iris? Please help us give Iris a home life she is accustomed to.

If you would like to arrange a meet and greet with darling and deserving doggie, Iris, please contact me.

Looking to adopt? How about these two beauties?

These two beautiful dogs are up for adoption after being rescued and cared for by Patan Animal Rescue.

The first dog, the little Schnauzer (photo courtesy of Scott Cushing), shows how beautiful this boy is. He has a great, calm disposition, is very smart and very loving. He would be fine in a family situation or with other pets in the house. He gets along very well with dogs and cats. He is one-year old and has been neutered. He is active, playful and enjoys being able to run in the back yard with his buddies.

Our Rowdy Rabbit is an all-natural Light Blonde Ale that only has 84 calories and 5.8 carbohydrates but still has 4% abv. This slightly hazy beer is light in color/calories/carbohydrates but still has a Citrusy Tart flavor (15 IBU’s) that is created with not only our hops/grains but stands out because of our use of coriander.

Our Light Jamaica and Light Maracuya (Passionfruit) beers are even easier on your waistline. 72 calories, 4.9 carbohydrates, 3.5% abv. and they both go down like juice. These shandy-like beers ended up very popular with our taste testers (The Hop Family (c;).

Sage benefits

Did You know?

* Sage is rich in nutrients, especially vitamin K. One teaspoon (0.7 grams) boasts 10% of your daily vitamin K needs.

*Sage is loaded with antioxidants that are linked to several health benefits, including improved brain function and lower cancer risk.

*Sage has antimicrobial properties that may kill microbes that encourage the growth of dental plaque.

*Sage may help reduce the intensity and frequency of menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes and irritability.

*While sage may lower blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity, more human research is needed.

*Studies show that sage may improve memory, brain function and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

*Intake of sage and sage products have been shown to lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and raise “good” HDL cholesterol levels.

*Sage has been linked to other potential health benefits, such as relieving diarrhea, supporting bone health and combatting skin aging.

*Sage is incredibly versatile and easy to add to soups, stews and baked dishes.

We want to reduce the use of plastic, we use paper covers and we invite you to bring your favorite bag, as well as your containers to fill them with the necessary amount.

Frequency medicine physician

Frequency medicine physician, Lor Heartvibez, over 7 years of experience.
Frequency interacting with matter makes up our entire bodies and existences. Just like a symphony of musicians playing, if one instrument is off you either have to tune it back to resonance or kick the person playing wrongly out of the orchestra. Specifically to the body, you can’t remove an organ or dis-harmonious tissue without traumatizing the original blueprint of the body. As well as, with the tools of today, modern medicine has not mastered tuning an organ or tissue back to healthy resonance. So, to compensate, the other musicians or organs/tissues will have to make up for the incorrect sounds and vibrations by throwing themselves out of alignment for the betterment of the whole.
Over time, the musicians begin to play off key thinking it is the correct key, because the body has been off note for so long that, to the body, disharmony sounds correct.
In the body this is called dis-harmony or as medicine calls it…disease.

Cat scratchers and towers

Cats are curious, fearless animals and they love to play. Life locked up at home can be boring for them without games or surprises. Remember that they need to meet their needs and scratching is one of their basic instincts, to file their nails, as a form of play, for anxiety or insecurity or to defend their territory. Many times we get angry because our cat has scratched the sofa or the curtains, but we should ask ourselves, are we giving it any alternative?

Scratchers for cats are a good gift for them, it helps them to stay active and keep their nails in good condition. Plus, it’s yours, yours alone. Something that cats love.

– 5 reasons why your cat should use a scratching post:

1. To keep their nails healthy and strong.
2. To stay active and avoid health problems.
3. To play and release stress
4. To create shelter
5. For their curious instinct.

Constructed entirely of good wood, strong and stable solids, with strong sisal and high-quality carpet cloth.

I have different designs and models. Prices vary from each one.

I also manufacture scratchers based on your budget.
You will like it a lot.

Recommendation for Dr. Oswaldo Cobos, DVM, veterinarian

I’ve used the services of several veterinarians in my now twelve years in Cuenca, some better than others – but Dr. Oswaldo Cobos, of Cuenca Animal Clinic tops them all. When my new baby doggie got really sick last week, my regular vet prescribed some medication to treat what he assumed was another bout of a previous illness. However, she got worse, not better, over the weekend and when my vet wasn’t available yesterday (Sunday), I called Dr. Oswaldo, who had previously been highly recommended to me by several friends. Dr. Oswaldo lives way on the other side of town, a good hour’s drive from my house, and Sunday is his day off. However, he showed up at my house within less than two hours of my WhatsApp distress call. He had never seen me or my dog before. Dr. Oswaldo spent more than an hour with me and my baby, examining her and talking to me, explaining a lot of things in detail, with patience and compassion – and in excellent English – which is a great plus in cases of emergencies, when my fairly decent Spanish fails me. He took samples of my dog’s most recent stool and even a vomit sample back to his clinic, Cuenca Animal Clinic, for lab testing. A few hours later, he was back with test results and the necessary medication to treat what ails my baby (which is totally different from what my regular vet had assumed). And this afternoon, he was back again with a test kit to check my dog’s ears for what looks like an infection. He’ll be back tomorrow with those test results and whatever medication may be needed. I cannot even begin to express the level of my appreciation for this jewel of a veterinarian. I had previously hesitated to contact him because I thought his services would be expensive. I was wrong! If you’re new in town and are looking for a great vet, or if you’re in need of a new one, give Dr. Oswaldo Cobos a try. Dr. Francisco Morales Leon, DVM, also works with him, but I don’t think he speaks English.

Recommendation for Ismenia Marchan, personal care

Ismenia Marchan is above and beyond caring and very attentive. She doesn’t wait to be told what to do and she takes the initiative when it comes to cleaning or doing chores, not to mention the fact that she is good with incapacitated people. Reach out to her. You won’t regret it: 096 268 6652. I forgot to mention that her English is limited, but you can exercise your Spanish.

Recommendation for Jerri Ridley, massage therapy

A few weeks ago, my whole body was really hurting so I decided to see Jerri, masseuse extraordinaire. You ask why do I say that? Because since she has great knowledge of the human physiology and did put this knowledge to work on my body which, after seeing her a few times, I am feeling like my old self.

I cannot thank you enough Jerri and she can do the same wonderful things to you if you go see her. Make an appointment today.
