Claro TV and English

Been in Nica land 2+ years and slowly watched English channels dropping off of Claro's line up. So the other day I was playing around and set my TV to SAP, Second Audio Program. Voila.......Sorry, that's French. But many channels, when you set your TV to SAP, have English! Maybe this was known and posted before but for me...........A Revelation.

More Anti-narco cooperation in the region

The Enhanced Cooperation Agreement to Fight Organized Crime in Central America and the Dominican Republic was signed a year ago. The result (starting this year) has been meetings every two weeks at the Justice Training Center for Central America and the Caribbean in Costa Rica to implement actions against narco-trafficking organizations and organized crime.

Carry-on limit

Got a newsletter from United saying they were going to start enforcing their carry-on limits. That`s sounds great because of the dog and pony shows I have seen on some of their flights where passengers can barely board or leave for all the baggage and confusion. The crews on the Houston- mga leg are usually right on top of it, posting a guard at the plane door to catch the people that ignored their instructions to check excessive baggage.

Pool construction recommendation

Just had our pool built by Mario Jose Avellcen in Jinotepe. He is from Carazo but will travel, no problem. Mario is honest, hardworking, friendly and professional. His number is moviestar 84826437. Great work and at great price! Also does home construction and remodeling.

I went to "edit" and added photos but althought they are listed as "attached"... they do not show up on the post. Any more suggestions, please?

Meanwhile, Venezuela continues bursting at the seams

Its citizens appear to be killing each other in open, class warfare. But let's put that in perspective. To wit:

Wiki (21 Mar 2014): "Venezuela is among the most violent places on Earth. In Venezuela, a person is murdered every 21 minutes. Crimes have been so prevalent in Venezuela that the government no longer produces crime data." How long has this criminal free-for-all been going on? What's the idea behind allowing it?

One of the convicts with fry

One of the convicts with fry

I currently have two batches of free-swimming fry in the tank. One pair seems to have fry that they're not bringing out of their stack of tejas, or one or the other of them shot blanks, or someone ate the eggs, or something.

You have to look closely to see the fry, but one is about 3/4 inches from the bottom, maybe an inch and a half from the left side, centered over a white piece of gravel. There are a number more to the right of that. This was cropped from the larger shot. This is a biparental pair.

Purification of salt water

Yet one more low-tech approach to producing pure water. While specifically designed for purification of salt water, it should work with any water that needs to be purified.

This particular product stands out because it is made from locally-made pottery and some metal scrap. No plywood, plastic and such.

It is Open Source you you can build on it. All described in A Simple Solar Oven Makes Salt Water Drinkable.
