MARGUERITE PASSED IN TOTAL PEACE AND PAIN FREE LAST NIGHT AT 11:00 PM. We couldn't be more grateful for all the love and generosity shared with her. Here is Sheri's final update.

We would also like to acknowledge the very sad passing of Gustavo Caldarelli of Posado Natura in Londres, Quepos. May all who love him find peace.

Although this isn't in our Southern Zone, this looks like a fun place to visit in the San Jose area ... Oxigeno Human Playground.

We will have some large chickens from Wade's organic farm this week.
