JJ was literally thrown out of the gate of the home that he probably had grown up in. The old lady lives in a shack of a house and said she didn’t want him. He ran across the street stopping 5 feet from the sidewalk, and just stood there. I chased him back to the other sidewalk where I had been walking, put the yoga strap on for a lead (I’d just bought). He ran to the gate of the only home he knew and his mother dog was lying next to the gate looking at him with her under the 4” space between the solid bottom of the gate and the dirt driveway and she was crying. He was trying to get through the gate and he too was crying!
I was finally able to pull him out and get him to come with me. I tried to get a taxi, but the empty ones just passed us by. Finally, one stopped and told me he would not take a dog. TI walked him back to where I could sit down and figure out what to do next. He continued to cry on and off and trembled often. We went to vet Dr. Gallardo (a prince among vets). JJ was full of fleas and some ticks too.
We ordered 20 heaters of 2 different styles, but the factory made a last-minute substitution. We ordered 20 sleek, bladeless/leafless heaters and 20 cute piggy-shaped heaters. We ended up with no piggy-shaped heaters and 40 of these quiet, bladeless/leafless heaters. So…they are on sale at 20% off. (Regularly $27.99, now only $22.39.)
They are a one-button, simple-to-use model that are great for nightstands.
We also now have 3 sizes of dehumidifiers, which are perfect for controlling humidity and thus mold.

Another record breaking weekend at Pájaro y Bestia. Thank you Cuenca for your support.
We wish to take a moment to explain our cooking process on our now famous pork ribs. Our pork ribs are cooked from beginning to end in a carbon fired smoker. The process takes approximately 5 hours – 1 hour to prep and 4 hours to cook. We do not boil our ribs, we do not sous vide the ribs, we do not cook them in a conventional oven, and we do not put our ribs on a smoker for a brief amount of time and then finish them in another piece of equipment. We are real deal BBQ. If we cook meat in anything other than our three smokers, we tell you. Even when we braise beef, we generally put the braising pot into a smoker to trap additional flavor.
We price our ribs by the pound, but we sell them in quarter pound increments. One quarter pound of ribs will be two small or one large rib bone. So, for only $2.75, you can come try one rib and discover that we are in fact the real deal. But to borrow someone else’s ad campaign, I bet you can’t eat just one.
Please come by this week and try one rib. After tasting it, then you can vote in the “Best of GringoPost” and honestly say that this is the Best BBQ in the city.

If you are filing for a temporary/permanent visa, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. That’s right. If I don’t get you your visa, you pay nothing. My name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, who studied and lived in Canada for many years. I have been a visa facilitator for over 9 years and have assisted hundreds of Expats in obtaining their visas, temporary and permanent, cedulas, translations, health insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports.
Hi all, I continue offering the service in the “Ecuadorian Visa” process, free consultancy to find which is the best visa for you and your family.

– Professional visa

Many of us have so many responsibilities in life that we forget to take care of our personal needs. If you want to get respite from a stressful routine and experience a relaxing, stress-relief and a rejuvenating time, you may consider thinking about visiting us.
Let’s be honest. Are all less able to handle the stresses that come our way when we’re already depleted by physical and emotional exhaustion. Or, put in a more positive way, we are more resilient and more able to handle life’s stress when we are feeling our best both physically and emotionally. A massage, a manicure, pedicure, a cute haircut or other forms of pampering revitalize you inside and out.
Spanish is not pronounced as it is written.
This is why it’s easy to master reading or writing but it’s hard to master listening and speaking since both are connected.
Anyhoo, short post today.
Have a good week…

Dear Friends in Cuenca,
The 2nd Vilcabamba Wellness Festival is only 2 weeks away (27 – 29 January). We hope you have blocked your calendar for this impressive event; gaining national recognition. What the festival needs now is advance ticket sales, a major sponsor for transporting our native cousins dropped out last week, and we need to raise funds pronto. This is where you come in!
The Festival features, speakers, music, workshops, food vendors, alternative therapies and ancestral healing. It will be held locally at the Technological Institute over by the Zoo. The program will be released shortly but don’t wait please, there will be something for everyone.
