Amazing Pool Eliminator - A swimming pool, spa, or large fountain is often your highest energy consumer after air conditioning. The Pool Eliminator will cut this energy cost 50% while extending the life of your main filtration system. The patent-pending Pool Eliminator uses completely safe copper and silver ions to purify water, allowing you an 80% reduction in purchases of harsh pool chemicals. The ionization process also reduces Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), precipitating hard water minerals to gradually eliminate scaling on your pool tiles and water features.
The 100% solar-powered Pool Eliminator is the only all-in-one ionizer and pool filter pump on the market today. The scientific facts available conclude that a combination of chlorine plus the copper and silver system is a proven, safe and economical approach to purifying water in swimming pools and spas. The new dual disinfection method is also easy to implement. This allows a considerable margin of error for maintaining a sanitary pool.
Introductory price is $994 USD or $12,900 Mexican Pesos. No other product in the world has a faster payback time - months, not years. - Charles Shipman, info [- at -] pooleliminator.mx, pooleliminator.mx/, (612) 145-1061, Baja California Sur

Can You Take Marley The Dog To Seattle? - I picked up Marley from the street in a dreadful state last year. He is now fully recovered and has a new home in Seattle. Problem is - how do I get him there? If anyone would consider taking him for me, I'd be very pleased to hear from you. He will travel in the hold and I will come to the airport to handle all loading and registration. There is no cost to you. As I'll be going anyway, I can offer a ride to the airport for 3 or 4 people, depending on luggage. Many thanks! - Penny Cottee, pennycottee [- at -] hotmail.co.uk, La Paz

Injured Dog In Desperate Need - A simple plea for help. For about the 7th time in recent months, an injured/abandoned dog has been left near my place in Comitan, outside of LaPaz. This young male has recently fractured femur (displaced) and a fractured tail. My landlord will not allow any further dogs. Local rescues are unable to assist. Local vets I have contacted will not accept payment plans. This is a very sweet boy, deserving of surgery and a loving home. If you have any compassionate suggestions or would like to meet him, please, please contact me. Muchismas gracias. - Kate Donker, 612-169-2334, La Paz
