Glass/plastic recycling

Does anyone know if there are places to drop off glass jars/bottles for recycling? Or to drop off plastic bags?

Gaby is a sweet and docile, 3 year-old female. She is very good with children and other doggies. She has been spayed, vaccinated and dewormed and is ready to become part of a forever family. She is manageable at only 9 kg.

Gaby’s sidekick, Jimmy, was adopted and now it’s Gaby’s turn.

Jimmy & Gaby’s rescue circumstances are shocking. Several months ago, some hikers discovered them in the woods after trekking about 30 minutes from the road.

Chelation therapy IV infusion that helps rid your body of toxins

Chelation therapy is an IV infusion therapy that helps rid your body of toxins. During therapy, I infuse a chemical called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), which binds with toxic metals in your blood (mercury, copper, arsenic, aluminum) and removes them from your body.

Clogged arteries contain calcium and other mineral and heavy metal deposits that bring about blockage through the process called atherosclerosis. Effectively reverses atherosclerosis by removing these unwanted deposits via chelation therapy, a good healthy diet and exercise.

Big weekend at Pájaro y Bestia

More than one person feasted on this dish over the weekend – the 1 pound rib plate.

To accompany the ribs, we had old fashioned white potato salad, mac and cheese, and black beans cooked with honey and rum. If you didn’t get some of the beans, you missed out. Don’t worry, they will repeat on the menu in a few weeks.

Not to forget, artisanal cerveza just to make it the perfect BBQ celebration.

There is a rumor that a brisket might make a special guest appearance in the coming weekend.

See you this Friday and Saturday for more fun.
