  1. My pleasure everyday is my husbands smile and my 3 puppies... I rescued one from the street 4 years ago and she was 5 days pregnant... 62 days later we had 5 puppies.... we kept 2 and found homes for the other 3 after I had them fixed. Life is a present and I love each day. I have fought 3.5 years with this cancer that normally gives a woman 6 months or less.... attitude is all.....
  2. Boy you sure got smart fast, MY husband and I have lived here 5 years and have learned a great deal. You should rent and then we bought. We live in Sarchi close to Palmarares and Naranjo. Biggest problem is I have terminal cancer and must go to my home town in the states for chemo... the waiting list and types of chemo are not available.here in Costa Rica.. I did spend 3 days this past week in Hospital Catolica and it was not too bad the bill. their service CAT scans etc is exceptional.... any questions shoot me an email.... Ronni
  3. Social Security has 2 parts.. A and B. part A is free and Part B is $96.00 a month.. you can opt out of the $96.00 a month by either calling social security or by going on line.. if you are already paying it will take about 3 months til they stop deducting it from your checki... Part A is for hospital expenses and Part B is for Doctors, chemotherapy, CAT scans etc...
  4. They must make up figures as they go along. I have had CAJA fo 4 years am a rentista and so my income shows 552,000 colones a month.. We pay 31,800 colones for 2 of us both over 55....My Canadian friends who live 4 houses down pay 19,120 for their CAJA..same income.... go figure... I tried talking to them and was told it is what it is and we don't change figures... Yeah like clockwork things change here all the time.... and not always for the better...
  5. laura, I live 15 minutes from Palmares.. It is heading toward the beach from my house in Sarchi, nice town.. I think around 45000 people.. When we have lunch I will give you the info... The palmares fiesta is there every January.. largest in the country... Homes run the gamut from teeny to mansions... R
  6. [ I agree with that saying 100%. Laura this part of the Costa Rican law was reversed last year..It was called discrimination... the reason behind it originally was that they wanted to make sure the woman was not pregant and the new guy got stuck... so now with DNA testing etc... they repealed the law....Here is what it used to say.. "According to Costa Rica marriage customs, a woman must wait 300 days from wither the death of her husband or the date of the divorce decree before she is allowed to remarry"
  7. I will add that when Dan Browns movie "the Divinci Code" came out it was the within 3 days of being released in the states...
  8. okay Costaricafina who do they look like? Which side of the family is the resemblence.. Ronni ps they are adorable..
  9. I own my home in Sarchi, never went through a real estate person, no problems.. but what I do want to say is that the amount of bad publicity you have given them could have been solved had they just paid you some attention and paid the legal bills..been upfront and honest and honorable... Now I will never reccommend them and how much will that cost them??? Its amazing to me that people want to not solve problems and then they want others to recommend them... well consider this... I would never recommend a company that turned its back on one of its customers..No matter who that company was or what they sold... I wish you much luck and happines... Grecia is nice... but not as nice as Sarchi... LOL... Happy Holidays....
  10. [ ummm I am guilty.. I did not know there was a calendar.. calendar I think of paying bills and birthdays
  11. I lived in Las Vegas my whole life.. now retired 3 years ago to Sarchi Costa Rica...
  12. Wait wait you are not in Kansas anymore.. LOL.. there is no better business bureau and no insurance companies.. at this time the monopoly from the government is the ONLY game in town...
  13. la nacion is the best. tico times is like the national enquirer and am costa rica is okay but not too much local news On Fridays la nacion prints some things in English... I subscribe here in Costa Rica... enjjoy forgot to add la nacion is 400 colones on Sunday which is about $.75 200 colones during the week.. and what I meant about am costa rica is that they usually do only sensationalism.... also.. try insidecostarica.com which copies word for word from la nacion.. you can read it on line...

  15. Continental is the best from everyone who I have ever known.. problem is temperature... if where you are going is over 80 degrees I don't think they will fly the animals... go to continenal and check...
  16. Everything is rising.. In January of this year my friend on her own property built a 1000 square foot home.. it cost total with everything... $40,000 but remember she owned the land... this was in San Ramon... I also have a friend who just built and it is for sale a 5300 square foot 5 bedroom here in Sarchi for $415,000. Its all in what you want... I bought a used home 10 years old in Sarchi and remodeled the 3 bathrooms and kitchen and have an acre of land... reasonably... Concrete rebar etc seems to go up every day....
  17. [ How is night driving working for you? I do drive at night but I live in a small town.. Sarchi... I won't drive in the driving rain and night at all.. but that is becaue I don't feel I see well enough to go through that type of rain.. I will drive to Grecia or Naranjo from here at night.. I also feel very safe. I used to work Gyd in Vegas for over 34 years and I drove to work at 2AM.. I feel safer here....
  18. [ Last summer, when we visited Costa Rica (Playa Tamarinido), my daughter (now 17) loved this unrefrigerated milk that tastes really sweet. It's in a carton. What's brand(s) is the milk? Is it available in the USA? I live in Henderson, Nevada. Go to Albertsons or Smiths they both carry long shelf life milk. In Albertsons its in the secton where the condensed milk and evaporated milk is... Its all over now, but Americans are funny about things that need to be refrigerated...ie... here as well as all of Europe no one refrigerates eggs.. I lived my entire life in Vegas and noticed the milk last trip iin December... I will look again in March if you would like... R
  19. Please read Tims reply on his Costa Rican Blog....http://blog.therealcostarica.com/2007/02/08/my-readers-write/ Most courses I couldn't afford and some are membership only...I am afraid we had to give up playing when we moved here 2 years ago..
