Peaceful, Thoughtful Days in our Loverly Southern Zone of Costa Rica

La Naturaleza by Sally Dolak of Puriscal

Welcome to lots of new friends visiting and moving here to our Southern Zone ... so glad you are here! Hope all are enjoying our blessed rain!

With plenty of embarrassment, I wanted to share that I got scammed by phone last week and the caller was able to get into my Banco Nacional account and empty it. I have heard similar stories ... one of a very intelligent and savvy gent who lost nearly $20,000. Since this happened, more stories have surfaced from incidents from other financial institutions. There was no way they got my password so I am extremely stumped and out many hours trying to get things back to right. So, just a warning ... never give any personal info by phone ... trust in God & tie your horses!

Hope to see you at Colibri's Corner this week at the San Isidro Feria ... we are open from 7am til 8pm on Thursdays and Fridays from 9am til 1pm ... first booth in front of the Supermarket in the back of the feria. We have organic dates!!!!!

  • We are looking for a good home for our two large dogs asap as we no longer have a yard to keep them in. They are excellent guard dogs, loyal family dogs, and good with children. They are extremely protective and territorial and not good with other animals. We prefer to keep them together as they are best friends but they can go to separate homes.

  • Female - Kailua is an 8 year old spayed Rottweiler mix. She is super sweet and loving. She is long haired and in great shape.Male - Hemi is a 10 year old neutered Italian Mastiff. He is a wonderful loving dog. He is in good health but has some hip problems common in larger breeds. He gets around fine and gets a shot from the vet occasionally that really helps.
