new videos...


Since our last newsletter back in October, I have been very busy with guests and shooting loads of new video.  Between Thanksgiving and New Years, I have compiled 15 chapters of brand new material for your viewing enjoyment.  Some of the videos (Chapters 87, 88 and 89) were made by the videographers at the International Living Conferences in San José and Las Vegas.  I was able to "repurpose" and personalize the videos for display on this website.  In addition, we are also striving hard to reflect our life and experiences here in Costa Rica. 

Many more videos are being planned for the next few months.  If you have any ideas regarding new subject matter, please contact us.
