​​I love Motmots ... or Bobo's as they are sometimes called. Momotidae Coraciiformes.

Wish I knew who took this photo so I could fully credit this captured moment.

Welcome Welcome to lots of new Readers ... really some awesome newcomers to our beloved, verdant Southern Zone the last few weeks.

Here is a link to an article in Spanish regarding the annual Blood & Hair Drive that is coming up January 29th, from 7 til noon at the Complejo Cultural, next to the library (biblioteca), downtown Perez Zeledon. To donate blood, you must be between 18 and 65 and weigh more than 110 pounds. For hair donations, hair should be 8 inches or longer. This is always a wonderful community event.

Urgently needed a good home for my sweet girls, must return to Canada March 1st. On the left is Roxies and her sister Bella on the right. They are 4 years old, healthy, fixed and so very sweet. Great companions and security for your home. Would prefer to adopt them together but will consider separating them if a must. They are great and easy to walk both on a leash as well. Please call for more details 8344 3930 or Check Furry Friends for photos.

Afternoon Blues Live! every Friday 3:30 - 5:30 pm at Rock 'n Roll (across from Lucky's Casino).

You may have heard Russ G singing soft folk and romantic rock at a party a couple of years ago. Well, he gets a little rowdy at this new Bar & Restaurant every Friday before sundown. So if you are a fan of CCR, The Eagles, Eric Clapton unplugged, and some soulful relics from the 30's and 40's, stop by for a brew and bocas. Give a listen and still get home before dark

Happy to share that we are now carrying delicious fresh lentil sprouts by Diane ... the best I've ever tried!

Just got a new supply of Organic Coconut Flour and the Garlic Amino Acids!

For those who enjoy meat ... we are very fortunate to have a new Lamb producer here .. and their booth is just 3 down from Colibri's Corner. They eat pasto (grass) and are well cared for. Dr. Adrian from Corral del Sol is a partner and you pick some up there, too. Call Juan Carlos at 8708-9000 or 8921-0889 to make an order or for questions. D' Mi Granja.
