Electric bill DOUBLED?

Our electricity bill doubled for July/August. My housekeeper said hers did too. Was this a city-wide phenomenon in Cuenca? Can anyone explain?

I lost my cat; please help me find him

Hello everyone. I lost my cat on 8/14/2022. He ran away from the noise of a party and hasn’t come back. He’s orange, he’s about 3 years old and he’s a bit big and he doesn’t have a collar. He is very afraid of people and is probably hiding but also starving.

We are in the Miraflores neighborhood at Carlos Fernandez de Cordova and Hermano Miguel.

I miss him a lot and his sister misses him too. Please WhatsApp me (or call but WhatsApp is easier) +593 581 8073 if you know anything.

I’m offering a $100 reward for info that leads me to his return. I’m also on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/suzie.burlison. Thank you very much.

Life changing health technology for sale

Oxygen generator and equipment for EWOT for sale. Perfect for a day spa, sports medicine or a home gym.

Exercising with oxygen therapy is a scientifically proven phenomenon that’s said to restore our natural health to a youthful state. This is called EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy; pronounced e-watt), and it’s benefiting the lives of so many people.

It’s true that anyone can benefit from restoring his or her circulatory function and blood flow, but exercise with oxygen therapy is meant to increase oxygen circulation at a rapid pace. And although there’s certainly a time and place for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, for the everyday person who is looking to oxygenate blood in their body — thereby reducing inflammation, increasing energy and maintaining health — exercising with oxygen therapy may be more effective and efficient.

Recommendation for Cristian Cordero, Locksmith

Cristian was recommended as a trusted locksmith by a friend who had used his service years ago. Cristian diagnosed and repaired my increasingly sticky door lock. Part of the problem was a sagging door due to the absence of a needed screw to hold the door in place. He arrived promptly at the agreed time and worked quickly. He was professional and thorough. Communication was in Spanish.

Recommendation for Rami Ridan, hair salon

I have been getting my hair cut in Cuenca for several years but was never happy, even when I took a picture for the stylist to copy. I was letting it grow out to avoid the disappointment of another bad haircut when I saw the recommendation for Rami.

He is wonderful. He is what you always wanted your stylist to be. You don’t have to tell him what you want. You want your hair to look good and flatter your face. That is why you go to the stylist.

He looks at your hair, feels its texture, etc. then he looks at your face, then he goes to work. When he finishes you look into the mirror and think, “Yes! That’s what I wanted to see.”

To say that I highly recommend him is sadly not praise enough. I won’t be going to anyone ese.

When I arrived in Ecuador from the US the digestive system was already several weeks, how do I say this politely, lagging far behind my desire to consume delicious Ecuadorian food. It was serious enough to see a gastroenterologist in Quito. He was of no help.

Dr. Jean Saint-Eloi was recommended by a new friend in Cuenca and he treated me once a week, which included an easy to take herbal tincture. Within several visits all was right again, in fact, not this good since my 20’s! I’m 66 now.

SciFi discussion group meets Thursday

The next meeting of the Cuenca SciFi and Fantasy Discussion Group will be:

* Date: this coming Thursday, September 1st
* Time: noon
* Place: Golden Prague Pub

The book for this month is:

* The Galaxy, and the Ground Within, by Becky Chambers

This is the next book in the nominee list for the novel category of this year’s Hugo Awards, that we’re slowly working our way through. (The award winners will be presented on September 4th this year.). Becky Chambers has written a number of very well received science fiction books in the last few years. This is technically book 4 of the Wayfarers series — which won the Hugo Award for Best Series in 2019 — but each book is very standalone; they share a rough chronology, and some characters in one book may make appearances in others, but the books are self-contained and can be read independently.

For anyone who hasn’t been to the Golden Prague Pub, you can find it under that name in Google Maps. It’s directly across the street from the Supermaxi El Vergel, 2 blocks south of Parque de la Madre on Alfonso Cordero. The place opens at noon — if you get there early, I’m not sure what their policy is on letting you grab a chair, but the Supermaxi has a couple of benches outside on the upper level.

Anyone who finds themselves available and wants to show up is welcome. This is intended to be a general geek-interest reading/discussion group. Subjects could involve scifi/fantasy fiction and movies, anime, tech, gaming, a book-of-the-month reading, and so forth. Friendly arguments about how about whether Amazon’s Papergirls is faithful to the graphic novels, or whether Luis Guzmán is a good fit to play Gomez Adams in the upcoming Wednesday series, are entirely possible.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them below and I’ll keep an eye on this space to answer them.

See you all then!

Thursday, September 1st, noon, free, Golden Prague Pub, Calle Alfonso Cordero y Av. Jose Peralta, Cuenca.

Join us on Sundays at 10 AM. This Sunday we take a look at how to be the church as God wants it to be.

We are a diverse church with people from many different countries, cultures, and backgrounds. We come together to explore the true meaning of God’s word and how to apply it to our lives; build strong relationships; serve each other and serve our community.

We desire to be a true expression of the love of Jesus. Worship is in English and Spanish. Our message is in English with simultaneous translation in Spanish via state-of-the-art translation equipment.
