We all live in neighborhoods, right? I live in Cucanama Bajo. My friend lives in Barrio Cuba. Well, he ordered a part sent to his address, a computer part. And Paypal denied it! They notified him that the order was under investigation barring the word, ‘Çuba.’ Can you believe it? Because the U.S. authorities have blocked anything with the word Cuba in it. Seriously! And the end result? The order was cancelled. Wow.

Word of the Day – salsa – sauce
Tip of the Day – You can use hot peppers from the garden. If you want them to be less hot, remove the seeds. The peppers are so hot here, I use gloves to protect myself from rubbing my skin!
