SPANISH LANGUAGE LEARNING MATERIALS

SPANISH LANGUAGE LEARNING MATERIALS Different people find that they can learn Spanish or other languages by using approaches that they find work best for them.  There is a considerable variety of learning materials available.  Even some dictionaries have different styles.  We are reducing our library of Spanish language materials and offering the opportunity to try multiple approaches at much lower cost than using new materials Most items are in very good to excellent condition.  Some have…See More

" The point remains that the order itself applies ONLY to cosmetics.  No other items are prohibited by the Comunicado.  Somebody is misinterpreting it and mis-applying it.  That is what needs to be corrected."

Word is spreading that prescription drugs, vitamins, supplements and cosmetics can no longer be imported by mailed packages (with the exception for drugs not available here, involving a paperwork-laden process of copies of prescriptions from the US and another from a doctor in Panama, etc.).I just learned of this today and did something really radical.  I read the Spanish language order (Comunicado) dated August 1, 2017.I wrote the following comment for another forum and am repeating it here in…See More

HEAVY 3" X 3" SQUARE TUBING 1/4" THICK FOR CONSTRUCTION, TRUCK BUMPER, ETC.

This piece of square tubing is 12 feet long and weighs about 8.8 pounds per foot. I used part of it to have a bumper made for my pickup truck.  You may want to do the same or use it for some other purpose where a lot of strength is needed.  Cost for a fulll length piece is $79.00 + 7%.  Proportional cost for the 12 foot piece is over $50, but I will sell for $45.Contact Bob Gregory  6745-2828 (also WhatsApp)                                         Email  usn11958@gmail.comI had a nice front…See More

HOW TO DONATE TO ALTO AL CRIMEN

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 9:10pm 4 Comments

We brought this freezer from the U.S. and have been using it here for over three years as a supplement to the freezer section of our refrigerator.  I don't know its exact age.

 

It keeps food frozen solid.  We only replaced it because we chanced on a new one for a great price and just couldn't pass up the bargain.  (I…

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your interest in buying our stuff.

Please forgive my elusiveness, the online sale is the best way for me to manage selling off my stuff while maintaining my sanity - my wife & I both work full time and the distractions of having people show up/call has a pretty serious negative impact on our productivity. If you make a purchase on the site, you will be provided with contact information and a google maps link to our location - we are in Los Naranjos (near La Casa de Montana). Thanks for your understanding.

We will be setting a date aside to do a more traditional yard sale, but that probably won't be until late January. We'll open our doors to the general public at that time and an announcement will be made prior to that date.
