Just checking in, the Samsung note 2 is doing fine. I’ve been here almost A month, use the phone pretty regular since I have several local Tico friends, and I use plenty of data. I put 120.00 American and haven’t had to re-up yet. The signal has been good and I’ve been all over. Only A few mountain pass interferences. Other Han that alls well in the land of Pura vida.
Oh, another thing, geez, I haven’t had A cross feeling of ill intent towards another this whole time. It’s like the more I come and stay, the quicker I shed that American anxiety.
Oh, the bottom should have the same rebar pattern, in the states we pour 8″ bottoms raking it up the walls about A foot for the tie in. Here I would use A 10″ bottom.
Lol, it timed me out again. So I cut and pasted it.
I would build with gunnite.
When the hole is dug use A real backhoe operator. Someone that won’t get to close to the hole and unceremoniously knock the walls into the hole. Dig the hole with +16. Plus 16 in. To the dimensions. For 8 in. walls. The rebar tied throughout the pool on A 12in. pattern. Down here I seldom see main drains. I would use A main drain, run the chlorine grade tiger flex hose. Their is A wall thickness difference. I would get A pool skimmer also. They’ve become more popular, I have seen pools back in ’92 that didn’t have them. The bottom depth should flow. The most popular pools in the states are the 14’x28′- 4′- 5-6′ deep rectangle and the kidney shape. 28’long, one end with A 10′ radius, the big end 16′ radius.
Use A concrete pump, call A concrete company in the states, get the gunnite “pool recipe” very important. Try not to use A retardant. Hopefully the concrete plant isn’t more than 45 minutes away. When you use the pump it helps to control the quick cure, getting hard in the truck, pump or line. Concrete dries in A hose you got problems. When the walls are done make sure they cut clean lines don’t go to high or to fast as they go around you only want to build about 12 in. Each go around. When the pool is done, the beam should be flat, not slicked off. When the pool is done sprinkle it earlY in the morning and the evening for A week it will stall the curing and alleviate future cracking.
When the waals are cured use the rebar with A 12 inch pattern. We would leave every other leg protruding from the top beam. These I would, before the concrete dries, cut A 1-2 inch trough to allow the leg to be pounded down. The leg should be about 2-3 ft. long. Use the legs to tie the pool to the deck. When you finish the inside I would use one of the ” brite” finishes.
This is where the people make the biggest mistake with A coated pool. Chlorina a d chemical imbalance. The only thing that suffers worse than A human from imbalance is pools. Ok, this is fodder. From here I can answer other questions.
I built pools in the states for years, I would say I did excellent work.
I just drafted A composition of the do’s don’ts and since the website has such A rapid time out the article went blink.
I apologize for being A peck peck when posting, being A construction worker and not A clerical worker causes me to take longer.
From here I will just say good luck with your pool.
Each problem presented was addressed in my post, oh well.February 17, 2013 at 1:29 pm in reply to: Spot on Article – Earning an income while retired in Costa Rica #201238
This is A great optic, sure, I can see their view. I also am aware of another thing the government could scrutinize long before it scrutinizes its Natural born citizens that worked all their lives to have that social security?
Why doesn’t the Divided States go after this money? They could shut down all money, bank, wire transfer systems and make taking anything across the border illegal.
To demonized someone for trying to live A less burdensome life in A much more peaceful place, folks who’ve worked, taught students, fought as soldiers, choosing to enact that freedom they earned, are now vilified?
I find this despicable. They’ve given amnesty, look the other way when they give pre natal care to an illegal, that the money cold be better spent on our homeless and military, they look the other way when they live 10 deep and impact services, water, sewage, school overcrowding and classroom translators, taking jobs for bare bones, and now, they send BILLIONS back.
I with go after the real funneling of funds. Illegally obtained, anything an illegal does in the states. From walking outside to going to work, to sending money home, it is an illegal act until they apply for residency. I. In the process of doing it here. What entitles them? ( other than A president/congress/war machine that lavishes in the unclaimed taxes google that)
Here’s the first paragraph in an article about the Billions sent back to other countries by illegal immigrants.
Many immigrants send remittances to their family left behind in their native countries. For some individuals, it is necessary to send money to relatives remaining in their home countries, in order to either help supplement their income, or to provide their only source of income. Immigrants who have recently arrived in the United States tend to send money home often, despite earning relatively low wages. However, the longer an immigrant resides in the United States, the more money they tend to send to family back home. For example, recent immigrants tend to send $200 or $300 home on a monthly basis. Individuals who have been in the United States longer and are better off financially tend to send money less often but in larger amounts. It is estimated that worldwide remittances amount to more than $126 billion. Remittances have become a considerable force in the economy of many countries. Among the countries that receive the most in remittances are Mexico, the Philippines and India. Last year Mexico received more than $17 billion in remittances. The amount of remittances in Mexico exceeds the amount of foreign direct investment in the country. This is not surprising given that a significant portion of Hispanics in the United States are of Mexican descent. Other Latin American countries like El Salvador are popular destinations for remittances. In 2005 approximately $2.5 billion was sent to El Salvador. The amount represented more than 13% of El Salvador’s GDP, or gross domestic product. It is estimated that Latin Americans residing in the United States send $30 billion dollars to their native countries.
Thank you Scott, i’m finally in A position take A run at our business.
I believe proper planning has been possible because I’ve gleaned as much from here as i have in my extended visits. Residency, corporations, taxes, shipping, the whole gamut.
All much appreciated.
I’m curious, A few things. Does anyone have or know of anyone with the Samsung galaxy note 2?
With corporation papers can I get cell service? It is A business corporation.
Great FYI, 💡
You can drop pin your locations, start, finish on google maps and it will give you travel times. I use it all the time.
It often also gives alternate routes.
There’s a whole segment of society that you don’t have to put spurs on someone’s hands and have them fight. Long before UFC there was club fighting and backyard fighting.
YouTube Kimbo Slice, some of us grew up this way.
My father was A power lineman back in the 50’s when they ran power across the continent. When work got slow he lumberjacked. Many was the time, my momma told the stories, they would be down on their luck and he would fight at the line yards and lumber mills and camps.
When they settled in Miami he continued to scrap. At the airboat camps, at the Hialeah stock car track, the old drag strip at the abandon air force runway off of 27 ave.
I was brought up to do the same thing.
Theonly difference being in the 70’s and 80’s they would lock us up for underground fighting.
Now they make millions of dollars as UFC fighters.March 20, 2012 at 1:18 pm in reply to: Costa Rica’s Chinchilla Calls for Drug Legalization Debate #202274
What were you smoking? That is a hell of a price.[/quote]
in Miami the price was up there when I got back from the army to Miami.
From there, as I got to moving about and using my moms club as A contact point, she was A barmaid at the Aquarius lounge on lejune and 8 st. It was A hotspot for the dealers being as it was topless, and just south of Hialeah.
I was there for it’s decline. I did like the deal I had going venturing to the keys and picking up, it really knocked A dent in the price.
By the time it got to 10 grand, I was tripling my money in NC.
I was there with all the crews, the Hialeah boys, the Kendall crew, the davie cowboys, the south beach guys, every neighborhood had it’s faction. You could go to many different clubs and they were like clearing houses.
The most notorious was Manhattans, on red road and the US1 service road.if you had contract work, you went to SIDS lounge on 67 ave. And Bird rd.or the copa across from the old tropical horse track.

I seriously doubt, without bing addicted to the needle,the rush of getting and finding ways to get more, the pain of the degradation, family scorn, societal rejection,the euphoria,which is adrenaline x10,then the crash.
People experience these things without drugs, granted. Do they suffer the magnitude for years?
I used from 9-28. I was born cripple, sexually abused, beaten unconscious more than once with A mans fist. Bullied for several reasons.
I didn’t overcome these things, I used to mask the pain and killed the little kid so an animal could take it’s place.
It was A horror story that started, when I was born cripple. It got worse with time.
Were it not for the NCDOC, nothing would have changed.
Theirs one form of human that can remotely relate, that would be A sociopath.
Folks may “understand” I doubt they can parallel that into really feeling the emotion that one garners through the diseased aspect and physical side of addiction.March 20, 2012 at 12:53 am in reply to: Costa Rica’s Chinchilla Calls for Drug Legalization Debate #202270
I’m right here in the mix in south Florida. I was watching the blackouts with ski mask pull over cars on 95 headed to the pill mills.they would ( the DEA) stop out of state vehicles that had 3-5 people all looking the part, search them then cuff and tow. I sit in meetings several days A week with treatment center clients. Alot of them. I see the epidemic put upon people by doctors and drug makers.
