Purchasing an auto?

What are the gotchas one need watch out for. I mean in the way of paperwork. I used to wrench so mechanical ability is not where I lack. Just haven’t purchased here and I see a lot of ads where claiming no fines or… ? Any advice welcomed.

Fundraising protocol

Dear Friends, We hope you are healthy and enjoying some fresh air after such a long time of restrictions.

We want to thank those of you who have helped raise awareness and much needed funds in the past, and those who might have other creative ideas that can create alliances and support for our work with women survivors of violence and their children.


Osa is looking for human companionship

Osa, our cuddly bear-dog, is looking for her forever human. Osa is a sweet girl, about 2-years old. She is sterilized and walks great on leash. Osa would make a great apartment dog as long as she gets her walks. She loves to cuddle! Osa is not a girl who is made for the farm life.

If you would like to open your heart and home to Osa or another one of our rescues who are looking for a forever human, please reach out to me.
Thank to those who have donated to feed and vet all of animals. Thanks to you, the remaining 8 dogs and 3 cats are all sterilized. We are always in need of dog food, cat food, and cat litter, as it only last so long! Thank you from all the paws.

Gramm Bulkshop / Coca leaves

Dear friends,

We want to share with you some information about coca leaves: Coca tea has been heavily used by indigenous people in South America for thousands of years and is made by steeping the leaves of the coca plant in boiling water. This allows the powerful phytonutrients to infuse into the water. In many parts of South America, this tea is known as mate de coca, and the greenish-yellow color is reminiscent of green tea.

The many benefits of coca tea are mainly the result of phytonutrients, as well as vitamin C, vitamin E, and B-family vitamins.

Recommendation for Deblex, courier

After a couple of years using one courier I became unhappy with the weight estimates, the $12 for a $30 smart watch, $10 for a Firestick and up to $12 for a pound of supplements plus having Servientrega added. I recently tried Deblex and have been extremely happy with their service.

No English but I communicate thru WhatsApp and their website and use Google Translate. I got my 1st shipment today. $50.40 for 7.1 lbs under the 4×4 (4kg/$400) rule and it included Servientrega to my house. My 2nd shipment is a day or two away and is 8.3 lbs and still $50.40. Each contained smart watches, supplements and clothes. Both shipments cleared customs with no issues. Email communication was great all along the line. As a shipment arrives in Florida I get an email with the tracking number and the weight. I couldn’t be happier.

Recommendation for Williams Reyes, physical therapy

My physical therapist, Williams Reyes, is patient, encouraging and motivational even when I give him a hard time and don’t want to work up to my ability. He is very knowledgeable (fully licensed and certified), intelligent, and positive. Williams communicates effectively even though English is his second language. I am comfortable with him and most important, trust him to know what is best for my recovery. I highly recommend Williams Reyes.
