Shopping Cart Modifications and Love of the Land

By: | Tags: | Comments: 4

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.

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

For the past few months, the local politicians (along with the Presidential ones) have really been stepping up their advertising and marketing trying get every potential voter aware of their policies. As we get closer to the election here in Puerto Rico, one of the main ways they do that (for those of us without television) is by

Littering in Puerto Rico

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Littering is not that big of a deal to many Puerto Ricans, which might sound bad, but compared to California, where littering is a social sin that carries a minimum $1000 fine, there is definately a difference. Flick a cigarette butt out of your car in CA, automatic $1000 fine. If someone sees you littering in CA, you

Our Driveway, 4WD and the Mayor

By: | Tags: | Comments: 1

The daily rain still hasn't begun, but we have had a few great downpours in the afternoon that our plants love! Every time the rain comes, I am reminded of how slippery and muddy our unpaved driveway gets. Five out of ten times leaving the driveway when it is raining, Summer and I have to engage four-wheel drive.

St. Patrick’s Day in Puerto Rico

By: | Tags: | Comments: 4

Does anyone know if Puerto Rico celebrates the 'non-religious' side of St. Patrick's day? Just to clarify that, I know that it is celebrated in the churches here, but do local Puerto Rican bars (not tourist bars) dye the beer green, hang four leaf clovers and discount Bushmills and Jameson shots?

Summer and I packed up all of our stuff (that we are brining to California) and headed to the airport this morning. Eddie and his two girls are watching the house, the two dogs, the cat (name to be announced momentarily), the lawn, the new plants, the Bronco and the Toyota. Along with the above mentioned family we
