Pancho Vida T-Shirt Shop Opens
San Pancho welcomes the Pancho Vida t-shirt shop - a place where authentic designs of San Pancho and beach settings come alive on men's and women's t-shirts. Justin Rankin and Shannon Hughes have recently teamed up to bring something new and vibrant to our quaint town. A place of expression and good style with original designs always rotating and new prints coming off the press daily. 
Justin is a professional graphic designer who used to have a t-shirt company in college. Paired with Shannon's creativity and business experience they make a great team, and it shows in their designs as well as the ambiance in their store. It took about 2 months for Justin and Shannon to renovate their building this past summer, but they managed to get it done just in time for high season! The store and products are definitely unique and full of life. The two admit that it would have been difficult to reach their goals without the support and fashion guidance of their beautiful wives, Katy and Blaze. 
The name of the store, Pancho Vida, simply means "Pancho Life" - a brand Justin and Shannon created to portray life here in San Pancho through creative t-shirt designs. In order to make the brand come to life, however, Justin and Shannon introduced their own very unique version of Pancho Villa (the Mexican revolutionary, whose name sounds almost exactly like their store's). You can see him painted on the large wall in their store, holding up the "hang loose", or "shaka" sign - Justin and Shannon's way of making the powerful image of Pancho Villa a little more friendly, and to remind people to always "keep it real". 
Stop by and support our friends Justin, Shannon and the newest addition to their team, Daly Flores (a San Pancho local), and pick up a shirt or two, or make a custom order of 25+ for your business! 
Pancho Vida is open 7 days a week, from 10am to 10pm! Don't miss out!

Back From The Brink
Throughout the world's oceans lurks a silent killer. It will outlive us, out swim us, and threatens to undo us. The predator is plastic and it's floating in an ocean near you.

We've all seen plastic bottles in our creeks, bays and harbours, or uncovered a grocery bag in the sand at the beach. These small scattered incidents seem minor on their own, but they're adding up to one big problem for our oceans. Fledgling sea birds are dying from being fed small pieces of plastic, turtles are choking on plastic bags and seals are being strangled by debris. Our oceans are becoming a plastic soup and our sea life is choking on the contents.

This is a global problem, with a truly local solution. We can turn our plastic addiction around. We can spread the word, change our habits, break the deadly cycle and save our marine life.

A lo largo de los océanos del mundo se esconde un asesino silencioso. Nos va a sobrevivir, por nosotros nadar, y amenaza con deshacer. El depredador es de plástico y está flotando en un océano más cercano.

Todos hemos visto las botellas de plástico en nuestros arroyos, bahías y puertos, o descubrió una bolsa de supermercado en la arena en la playa. Estos incidentes dispersos pequeños parecen de menor importancia por sí mismos, pero están sumando a un gran problema para nuestros océanos. Aves marinas mueren incipientes de ser alimentados con pequeñas piezas de plástico, las tortugas están ahogando en bolsas de plástico y las focas están siendo estrangulados por los escombros. Nuestros océanos se están convirtiendo en una sopa de plástico y nuestra vida marina se está ahogando en el contenido.

Este es un problema global, con una solución verdaderamente local. Podemos cambiar nuestra adicción plástico alrededor. Podemos correr la voz, cambiar nuestros hábitos, romper el círculo mortal y salvar nuestra vida marina.

Tropical Pleasures Coconut and Pineapples
Have you noticed San Pancho's colorful new fruit stands? Located on the highway just north of the entrance to town, San Pancho now has it's very own collection of authentic Mexican fruit stands: cold coconuts, dangling pineapples and oh yes, lots and lots of sweet treats!  Unfortunately the brightly colored candies get a very low nutritional score (they can actually be very damaging to your health), however the coconuts and pineapples are tropical treasures that are definitely something to get excited about! Let's take a quick look at the nutritional profile of these two amazing fruits. 

Pineapples. Struggling with joint pain or recovering from an injury? Pineapples might be your new best friend! The core of a pineapple contains something called Bromelain (a proteolytic enzyme). Bromelain has been proven to naturally reduce inflammation throughout the body. Not only are pineapples a sweet treat that can help your injuries heal quickly, they're also loaded with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. This means that pineapples can be great for preventing illness, keeping your bones strong, supporting healthy digestion and more!   

  Fresh coconut water is not only incredibly refreshing; it's also an excellent natural source of healthy electrolytes.  Though there is currently a lot of hype around coconut water in the USA, coconut water really only offers quality electrolytes if it's fresh out of the coconut.  Lucky for us, we can watch as our local fruit stands use their machetes to chop off the top of a coconut, stick in a straw and voila! It doesn't get much fresher than that!

You've probably noticed that living in San Pancho makes your sweat. This year the hot humid summer season seems to have lasted even longer than usual, which means you're probably sweating even more! Sweating is a healthy part of living in the tropics.  The only problem with consistent sweating (on hot days or from exercise) is that your body loses valuable electrolytes. Electrolytes are essential to helping your body maintain and regulate healthy fluid levels. In this climate it's extremely important to consistently replace your electrolytes. An electrolyte imbalance can result in muscle cramps, fatigue, nausea, and mental confusion.  Not fun and easily avoided by heading to your local San Pancho fruit stands.
So . . . you might want to add coconuts and pineapples to your shopping list this week!  Not only will you be doing something great for your body, you'll also be supporting the local community.

 ¿Ha notado coloridos San Pancho nuevos puestos de fruta? Situado en la carretera al norte de la entrada a la ciudad, San Pancho ahora tiene su propia colección de auténticos puestos de frutas mexicanas: cocos fríos, piñas colgando y sí mucho, y muchos dulces! Lamentablemente, los caramelos de colores brillantes obtener un puntaje nutricional muy bajo (que en realidad puede ser muy perjudicial para su salud), sin embargo los cocos y piñas tropicales son tesoros que son definitivamente algo para emocionarse! Vamos a echar un vistazo rápido en el perfil nutricional de estos dos frutos asombrosos.

Piñas. Luchando con el dolor de las articulaciones o se recupera de una lesión? Piñas podría ser su nuevo mejor amigo! El núcleo de una piña contiene algo llamado bromelina (una enzima proteolítica). La bromelina se ha demostrado para reducir la inflamación naturalmente a través del cuerpo. No sólo son una piña dulce que puede ayudar a sanar sus heridas rápidamente, también son ricos en vitaminas y minerales, incluyendo la vitamina A, vitamina C, calcio, fósforo y potasio. Esto significa que las piñas pueden ser grandes para la prevención de enfermedades, mantener los huesos fuertes, el apoyo a una digestión saludable y mucho más!

Cocos. Agua de coco fresca no es sólo increíblemente refrescante, es también una excelente fuente natural de electrolitos saludables. Aunque en la actualidad existe un gran despliegue publicitario en torno al agua de coco en los EE.UU., el agua de coco en realidad sólo ofrece calidad electrolitos si es recién salido del coco. Por suerte para nosotros, podemos ver como nuestra fruta local destaca usan sus machetes para cortar la parte superior de un coco, palo en una pajita y ¡voilá! No se puede pedir mucho más fresco que eso! Usted probablemente ha notado que viven en San Pancho hace que su sudor. Este año la temporada de calor húmedo del verano parece haber durado más tiempo de lo habitual, lo que significa que es probable que estés sudando aún más! La sudoración es una parte sana de la vida en los trópicos. El único problema con la sudoración constante (en los días calurosos o de ejercicio) es que su cuerpo pierde electrolitos valiosos. Los electrolitos son esenciales para ayudar a su cuerpo a mantener y regular los niveles saludables de fluidos. En este clima es extremadamente importante reponer constantemente sus electrolitos. Un desequilibrio electrolítico puede provocar calambres musculares, fatiga, náuseas y confusión mental. No es divertido y fácil de evitar por la partida a su local de San Pancho fruta en pie. Así que. . . es posible que desee agregar el coco y la piña a tu lista de la compra esta semana! No sólo va a estar haciendo algo grande para su cuerpo, también estará apoyando a la comunidad local.

  Bird Trivia
1) All birds have feathers. True or false?
True! Birds are the only animals with feathers. Birds have different feathers for different uses. Tail and wing feathers (also called flight feathers) are wide and flat since they help pushing against the wind for birds to fly; while feathers next to the skin are small and fluffy and they help birds to stay warm and dry.

2) All birds can fly. True or false?
False! Not all birds can fly. Some birds have wings that are too small or stubby for flying. Their wings are too soft and weak. Kiwis, for instance, have tiny wings that are hard to see. Instead of flying, Kiwis walk or run along the ground with their short legs.

3) All birds lay eggs. True or false?
True! Birds lay from one to twenty birds at a time. Birds´eggs are all about the same shape but they vary in size and color. Nearly all parent birds keep their eggs warm until they hatch. Small birds usually lay small eggs that hatch in about 10 days while large birds lay large eggs which take over a month to hatch.

So, you had them all right? Don´t miss the next bird trivia, next time regarding birds of San Pancho!
