Musings from Pájaro y Bestia

In case you do not know, several restaurants here in Cuenca have sold their smokers and they now boil the ribs.

Gasp! Yes – you read that right – boiled ribs.
Then they pour sauce over the top to hide their second-rate cooking technique.

Have you been served ribs covered in sauce just to hide the fact that the cooking technique made the ribs mushy and flavorless?
Our sauce is on the side cuz we’ve got nothing to hide.

Joint pain and arthritis IV therapy- collagen and vitamin C

Joint pain and arthritis are conditions that a significant majority of the population will face in their lifetime. The pain is usually attributed to inflammation and poor joint health due to malnutrition.

Collagen can help to support the strength and flexibility of the tendons and ligaments and aid recovery after exertion alongside vitamin C; the benefits of collagen might be even further heightened.

Collagen is a protein that plays a significant role in building the body’s structures. When it comes to muscles, ligaments and tendons, collagen provides elasticity, which allows the tissues to stretch.

Do you want to diversify your CDs?

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Cooperco has numerous offices throughout the city of Cuenca. We have English speaking account personnel that can easily explain our numerous CD options and, more importantly, how Cooperco provides a clear investment advantage. Check us out. Learn how Cooperco can help to make the difference for you. There is a reason that countless individuals as well as many financial institutions invest with us. We may not be the biggest but we are definitely the best. Call or email me for more information.
