Won’t you open your heart to be home for our precious boy, Pickles? Pickles is a male, sterilized, feline leukemia positive cat. Pickles is fine living here, as all 3 of our cats are feline leukemia positive, but our other male cat, Jake, is making life here at the rescue hard for Pickles. Pickles is a sweet boy, and deserves a life that is better. If you enjoy watching TV and sitting at home, Pickles won’t care at all, as he is a pro at cuddling. You will never have a lonely day again with Pickles in your life.

If you would like to open your heart and home to Pickles or another one of our rescues who are looking for a forever human, please reach out to me.

Bernan’s Home Canned Foods closed for most of May

Bernie and I will be off again next month on a smaller version of our European Vacation we planned in 2020. So that means that Bernan’s will be closed for a good part of next month. May 6th through May 25th, Reopening on May 26th. Until that time, we will be working hard to keep the pantry full of all the foods you love; so be sure to stock up so you don’t run out.

Cooking is Bernie’s passion but I have to say that traveling is a very close second. Since we have the chance to travel to the UK… we are going to do just that! We are sorry if this causes you any inconvenience but remember, even though we work most days, we have a bucket list too.

If you need a new product list please just contact me and I’ll send one to you as soon as I can get to my computer.

As always thank you so much for your continued support.

US Phone Service From Anywhere With Internet, With Text Messaging, Voicemail and More

As an expat myself, one of the challenges I had was to maintain communication with clients and other businesses in the USA. I tried to use WhatsApp, social media and similar methods, but I found that they don’t convince new/potential business contacts that you have a legitimate US-run business. I also found that using a cellular plan from home was too expensive, especially with all the roaming fees. Have you found similar challenges?

The solution I found was to have a US-based phone. I researched and found that most VOIP providers have hidden costs. But I finally found JVOIP Telecom, an FCC licensed company. I was so impressed I decided to join their team.

What do they offer? Well for less than other providers, you get a US phone number, with SMS, Voicemail and Visual Voicemail and more. It is accessed from your PC app, Smartphone, tablet or voip phone, basically anywhere you have internet.

We currently have clients in South America and would love to give you the opportunity to try out our service for free. Please feel free to visit our website, JVOIPtelecom. You can use this code, EXUSA14 for a 14-day free trial at checkout.

If you are interested, please contact me so we can coordinate the best time to talk.

Recommendation for VIP Hoe Healthcare, medical

My wife and I have been using the Med Alert button from VIP Home Healthcare for over a year now. Vinu Johny and Poulin Jose are both very professional and respond to your calls and inquires as soon as they can.

Poulin Jose is also a registered nurse. We have not had to use them for any medical emergencies for us but, have used the button twice to get a friend help on a weekend. Even though she was not a customer for the Med Alert button they responded within 15 to 20 minutes and made an assessment of her condition and talked to her doctor via the phone to determine a course of action. Both times they were very professional and the additional fee was very reasonable. We think they provided a very valuable service to the community.

Recommendation for Dimplo´s, Cleaning company

I am writing this letter to recommend the services of the Dimplo´s Cleaning Company. I have been using Silver Brite for more than three years and they consistently do a great job in my office building. Their employees are professional, punctual and thorough. In addition, Sliver Brite has great rates and a range of options that allows me to select only the services that I need.

In my workplace, my employees and co-workers like to celebrate special occasions, especially birthdays. We have a party in our cafeteria practically every week, meaning a sizable mess that needs to be picked up before the next workday. Silver Brite staff members take all of the extra cleaning in stride, keeping our working environment pleasant and fresh every single day.

Silver Brite will tackle more specialized tasks as well, from packing and unpacking offices to detailing executive boardrooms, saving me the hassle of trying to find a different company to handle occasional jobs. Most importantly, I have never been anything less than completely satisfied by the work that Silver Brite has done, so I confidently recommend them for all of your office cleaning needs.

Recommendation for Jerri Ridley, massage therapy

I have had chronic back pain as the result of an injury suffered years ago in the States. Finding Jerri when I moved to Ecuador has been a blessing. But this week she really proved her worth when I came in with a severe tightening of my middle back around the injury site. I could not sleep, lift much weight, or sit comfortably. With a combination of deep tissue massage and energy work Jerri helped release the inflammation and ease the tightening. Immediately afterwards I felt such relief. But the real reason for the recommendation is that the results have lasted. I am able to sleep and function thanks to Jerri’s expertise.

Gran Roca Wednesday Farm-to-Table Market at Los Balcones

Come to the Gran Roca Wednesday Farm-to-Table Market from Noon – 2 PM at Los Balcones (Only 4 blocks from Parque Calderon). You can come as early as 11:30 AM and enjoy a nice lunch in a lovely setting, meet others with similar interests, ask questions about our farming practices and future plans, and then pick-up fresh items from Gran Roca to take home with you. We are working on a future Gran Roca farm-to-table lunch featuring our farm-fresh products.

We’ll be bringing our healthy, nutrient dense products from our commercial kitchen this week including our Greek plain and flavored yogurts, our popular granola with pumpkin seeds and cranberries, veggie burgers, homemade tahini, the best hummus, GF chocolate chip cookies, ginger cookies, GF pumpkin spice muffins, Grain free, Milk Free Chewy Brownies, and salad dressings. We will again be previewing at no cost our vegan garden vegetable soup, as well as our garden vegetable salad, holiday hot chocolate and celebration chai tea. Don’t miss out on the fun. Come on over and stay awhile.

We produce everything we sell on our sustainable permaculture farm in the Yunguilla Valley, about an hour southwest of Cuenca. Our wide variety of products, including fruits and vegetables, milk products, eggs, chicken, turkey, beef and pork, provide everything you need to give your family fresh, healthy, delicious meals.

All of our produce is harvested in the morning for purchase in the afternoon — only a few hours old. Now that’s fresh! We’ll be bringing special produce varieties not available anywhere else, like our heirloom tomatoes, rainbow chard, broccoli florets, striped and yellow beets, wax beans, English cucumbers, real spinach, special lettuces, curly kale, blue and purple dinosaur kale, daikon radishes, leeks, onions, sweet peppers, bok choy and more.

Our fresh herbs include lemon balm, onion chives, garlic chives, mustard greens, oregano, Italian parsley, peppermint, rosemary, sage, and thyme.

Our milk products include same-day raw milk, extra thick and creamy Greek plain and flavored yogurts and real mozzarella cheese.

Our pasture raised chicken and duck layers produce naturally orange egg yolks as they feed on grass, bugs and a ration we make on our farm.

If you are looking for the freshest, healthiest, best tasting pasture raised chicken, you have come to the right place. Our chickens are rotationally grazed on pasture, are also fed a ration that we make on our farm without antibiotics or hormones, are able to scratch in the soil, eat grass and bugs and see the natural cycles of day and night.

Our Turkeys are now available in 1/4 dark meat or 1/4 white meat which weigh 4-6 pounds. They are raised on pasture like our chickens and are freshly butchered.

Our premium pork and Charolais beef are rotationally grazed on pasture and are butchered to North American standards in our commercial kitchen with all the cuts you would expect to see in a butcher shop.

We have expanded our production on our commercial smoker that uses only our sustainably raised animals, (so you know the source and quality of what you are buying) to include: the best pork chorizo sausage, smoked pork ham hocks, smoked pork half-rack ribs, smoked beef short ribs, smoked chicken or turkey big leg and thigh and our popular smoked chicken sausage patties.

Please email us if you are looking for specific items you wish to reserve to take home with you. If you receive our Weekly Newsletter, you can enter your order into our on-line store and request to pick it up on Wednesday at Los Balcones.

Buy direct from a farm that knows what real fresh, healthy, delicious food is. English and Spanish spoken.

Artemovil art show opening 7 PM, April 7

Artemovil is an art exposition of the work of Philip Hall. Fine art photography printed on archival watercolor paper, canvas and heat fused into aluminum. There is also a high resolution display of over 150 additional images, designed to be played back at high resolution.

The art on display is shown as classic and custom cars. However, on closer inspection, it becomes clear that while the classic (and sometimes not so classic) car is the predominant object in the pictorial field, it certainly isn’t the only subject. In fact, what Philip Hall does quite remarkably is use the classic car as a vehicle (pun intended) through which he can talk about highly sophisticated concepts in contemporary art and photography.

Opening April 7 at 7 PM. Show runs through April 30th 3 to 7 PM, Free, Paseo 3 de Noviembre 4-78 Y Bajada Todo Santos (near the broken bridge), Cuenca.

Free wine tasting at Porto y Gaia today

Today we are having a tasting event of two amazing wines from our house.

Estreia Vinho Verde is a delicious white wine that will teach you to differentiate a quality white wine and its flavors.

Zinio Graciano is a wine with aromas of forest fruits and a well-integrated floral bouquet. Nuances of cedar and toasted oak. On the palate it is vibrant and expressive, medium bodied, with hints of sweet vanilla. Notes of cherry, currant, coconut and fresh raspberries stand out, capturing the palate with a long and persistent finish.
Come join us for this event from 1 to 5 PM

Unidad Nacional 3-86 and Calle Del Batan.

Also if you come early at 6PM I will be playing some funny and unique videos like Rita Hayworth & Fred Astaire dancing to Led Zeppelin. I really think that you and your friends will enjoy this format.
