Shopping Cart Modifications and Love of the Land

By: | Tags: | Comments: 2

Trash. Lot's of litter. One of our biggest pet peeves in PR is the lack of respect for this beautiful island. I had a conversation with a friend last week about the trash, litter and overall disrespect for the land. He had a great perspective. He said; The United States was exactly the same in the 1970's.

The Casita Project – Building Again

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 5

We're doing it again! We are building a casita (small house) on the property. We have discussed having a 'mother-in-law' suite over the years and in January, after about 3 months of planning, quotes, Internet searches and soul searching (do we want to do it again?), we decided to pull the trigger and build a casita. Our house

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 3

We haven't been blogging too much lately. We've had our hands full with the busy finca life, being parents, working and having fun on this awesome island. Sydney and I listen to a "Silly Kidz" Pandora radio station on the way to school every morning. Here is a song I gave a thumbs up yesterday. It's a fun

Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit Hits Rincon

By: | Tags: , | Comments: 4

Rincon has been on the 'surfers map' for years. It was first in the spotlight in 1968 when there was a world contest held here and it has slowly gained popularity since. It remained sleepy for years but it has really picked up the pace since Summer and I moved down here. There are a lot of people

I really want to keep up with the blog and keep sending you guys a little taste of Puerto Rico everytime we post. There aren't many projects going on right now besides the constant mowing and weed whacking of our property during rainy season so I'll make a 'day in the life of...' type post. I experience two

Equal Rights For Consumers in Puerto Rico

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments: 33

It should go without saying that residents in Puerto Rico should be treated fairly and not be discriminated against. Whether it be because they are Americans, they are Puerto Ricans or because they live on this awesome island called Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. As an American in Puerto Rico I have experienced discrimination within

There is a bunch of active storms in the Atlantic this week. There is one tropical storm off of Puerto Rico and two hurricanes. One of the hurricanes, Gabrielle, is just south of Bermuda and the other hurricane, Humberto, is just off the Cape Verde islands. Neither of them appear to be a threat to Puerto Rico, but

How To Choose, Prepare and Eat a Starfruit

By: | Tags: , | Comments: 3

Since moving to Puerto Rico, we have planted, grown and tried all sorts of different tropical fruits. So far, my favorite is the starfruit, or carambola. When I tell people this and they tell me that they don't like starfruit, I figure that they must just be doing it wrong ;). Choosing and preparing a starfruit is very

I am posting this to the blog because I would like to reference this price list more easily than digging through my pictures in iPhoto. This post is more for me than anyone else, but if you happen to bump into our site trying to figure out how much it's going to cost you to park at the
