Posted in Charity by Pam on June 29, 2010

Who says things are slow, and that there is not much going on in Vallarta at this time of year? Full proof that this is NOT the case was evident on Saturday, June 26th, when a large number of local residents and visitors stepped out to enjoy a fabulous FUNdraising event in support of Puerto Vallarta’s Public Library, Biblioteca Los Mangos.

The event venue was the stunning Villa Leonarda in Gringo Gulch. Owner Sergio Toleando and his staff worked and sweated out the entire day preparing the gorgeous garden area for the arrival of the guests. A separate room with a “tienda” was set up offering various goodies including clothing, jewelry, artwork and books at great prices. Comments of “Wow! Look what I bought!” were heard throughout the crowd.

A wide variety of food was available along with thirst-quenching beverages. Restaurants No Way Jose, Barcelona Tapas and Chilaquiles offered a wide variety of delectable items. The (more…)

(General HealthCare Information, part 2)

In Appreciation of What I Don’t Have

I am so envious of people who can cook. They take a bunch of ingredients, add their special touch and whip up something that, when in your mouth, becomes the equivalent of magic as it dances across the taste buds. When I try, it becomes the equivalent of hell in your mouth as one tries to scrape it off the tongue.  I have many friends who own this talent. Hnoi, Dolores, Nina, Kathy, Liana, Brenda, Seth, Robin and many others. Including my son. I have no clue where he received this gift because it most certainly was not from his parents. His father never even made a pot of coffee. And me, his loving mother raised him pretty much on hot dogs and macaroni and cheese (definitely the kind from a box).
