    It looks as if “The Plunge” in Ocean Beach continues to do just that, plunge. The Plunge saltwater pool has been around since the early 1900s and was once a place where people learned to swim and enjoy the great outdoors. Think of it as an early swimming pool of yesteryear where famous English Channel swimmer Florence Chadwick trained among others. While it was once maintained by volunteers of the Ocean Beach Historical Society it has changed. Over the years The Plunge has become a sandy hole that’s more of an eyesore in some people’s minds. Many might ask why the former pool isn’t simply just filled in with sand, or perhaps made into something the community-at-large can use rather than sitting vacant. The answer isn’t easy. According to an Ocean Beach MainStreet Association tour brochure, William Dougherty was the builder of the hotel in 1919 on the site of the 1800s shack of OB’s first “homeowner” Capt. Thomas. The hotel had a grand opening on May 1, 1919, and was a popular resort during the 1920s as guests and locals enjoyed “the spa, skating rink, dance hall, and hot saltwater pool that drained to the ocean,” the brochure says. WORTH SALVAGING But time has not been kind to The Plunge and, in a sense, it’s a bit of a wasteland. However, it does have some historical value according to some, but it is not a historical landmark or ever been designated as such. Pat James, 62, a resident since the 1970s, and the vice president of the Ocean Beach Historical Society did have some thoughts about The Plunge and the adjacent 61-unit Silver Spray Apartments formerly the hotel/resort located at 5116 Narragansett Ave. “It’s called The Plunge because that’s what swimming pools were referred to back then; there are some in San Francisco, and one in Mission Beach. It was just a term they used a lot … Now it’s a big sandbox, and some of the walls are still there but some have come down where the surf came up and knocked them down. “Many Ocean Beach youngsters took swimming lessons there,” he said. “Florence Chadwick was one of the instructors who taught children to swim there and another notable regular was Faye Baird of Ocean Beach, considered San Diego’s first women surfer.” As it stands today, James noted the shape of the apartments remains the same, the windows and entryways have been altered. Also, the cover over the saltwater plunge no longer remains. “Although we are recognized as an emerging historic district by the City of San Diego, it is typically up to the owner of the property to seek historic designation. As far as I know, the property has been in the same family for many years,” he said. CHANGING TIMES The former pool is now a ruin and roped off to visitors. “…in the summer people would sit out there and use it over the years but much of the sand has washed it away. It’s a big empty spot that’s half sand, half weeds,” James said. In terms of maintaining The Plunge and keeping the area safe around it (it continues to deteriorate because of the elements), James thought it was the City’s responsibility. Perhaps because there is an easement for coastal access through the property. “The Plunge takes people around to the beginning of Sunset Cliffs, and then goes from a sandy beach under the OB Pier. “That’s where the cliffs start and I believe it is closed off now because the beach to the cliffs and the cliffs to the beach has been shut for some time due to a big part of the stairs that were washed out last year,” James said. “It is an area exposed to high surf and I’m pretty sure the City is responsible for any maintenance west of the sidewalk. This includes the entire Plunge area that takes a beating every year especially in the winter due to exposure to the elements.” Calls and emails to find out who does own The Plunge and who is responsible for keeping it up to par were not returned from the City of San Diego, or from the owner of the Silver Spray Apartment complex. According to the California Coastal Commission PIO: “San Diego has a Commission-certified Local Coastal Program (LCP), and this area would likely be in the City's permit jurisdiction. In other words, the City would issue the permits and it would only come to the Coastal Commission if there was an appeal.” “I don’t think the rest of the property is neglected just the one wall, and The Plunge is the highest-profile of the buildings. I think over the years I’ve spoken to some managers who did maintenance,” he said. “Volunteers did a lot of the work once and then the city picked up the ball about 20 years ago when the City’s resources weren’t stretched thin,” James said. “Today the City does some maintenance but it’s an area that takes its thrashing. Nothing can really be done other than keep it clean; at one time I thought maybe put in tables and sand, but it never came to fruition.” OLD RELIC The Plunge is a “historic relic of our heyday and should be left alone in my opinion. There is no reason to take it out. It’s a pretty solid piece of concrete other than some walls have fallen out. I know elderly people who swam with kids and if you ask them if they should knock it down, they shed a tear,” James said. There are only two commercial properties deemed historic in Ocean Beach: The Strand Theater and the Ocean Beach Library. Other historic designations include the cottage program. And while it may be just a big, decaying sandbox now, it once was quite an attraction. For example, according to the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association brochure in November 1919, Camp Holiday, the vacation bungalows next to the hotel, opened and advertised rooms for $1.25 a day, $6 a week, and $16 a month. In its early days, the row of bungalows served as an auto camp for the newly popular car travelers. Visitors pulled their cars right next to their rental cabins for their stay in OB. In 1927, individual apartments rented for around $35-$40 per month and included the use of the saltwater pool. James added it’s important to “remember our resort days as depicted in ‘Beach Town Early Days in Ocean Beach’ by Ruth Varney Held. The Silver Spray represents a major portion of this part of our history.” Today, James said he also felt it “is an asset to the community as affordable housing for year-round residents.” “Although showing its age today, I believe it is a historic gem waiting to be polished. Maybe someday we will see it returned closer to its former glory,” he said. FOLKLORE Among some of the stories about its history is that it once had a ballroom that is now said to be haunted. According to the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association brochure: “Legend says the ghost of Joyce Swindle, a young bride in 1964 who was shot along with her husband of three weeks on the walk near the hotel, haunts the halls with her cries and footsteps looking for her husband.” “I was in the ballroom a long time ago but not long enough to experience her spirit, I think I recall it being used for storage now,” James said. James who hasn’t paid much attention to The Plunge or the apartments as of late said, “I would like to go in and visit sometime again because I feel such a profound connection to our community’s history.” For now, The Plunge remains, but who knows for how long.

    As austerity measures have kicked-in to help slow the spread of coronavirus, individuals and small-businesses alike everywhere are adapting to the new realities of everyday work and life. Scores of people have lost their jobs, at least temporarily, while others are working from home.

    Restaurants have adjusted to having take-out and delivery only, beaches, parks, and trails are closed, while only essential shops like gas stations and grocery stores remain open.

    The Peninsula Beacon asked workers and small-business owners to share what they’re doing to adjust and cope in these uncertain times.

     

    RESIDENTS REACT

    “We are reaching out to the community to inform them about our local businesses that are still offering goods and services and especially take-out food, posting the businesses on our website, but It’s a moving target,” said Denny Knox, executive director for Ocean Beach MainStreet Association.

    “As the restaurants contact us, we post the information as quickly as we can, but we have limited staff time and diminished resources. We’re getting tons of information for the City, County, and state. We’re filtering it and posting it as quickly as possible and getting it out to our members.”

    Added Knox: “We’re trying to remain calm but hopeful that this community will rebound when this is all over. Since just about everyone is in the same boat, people are generally being really nice to each other and showing genuine concern for each other. We are swamped with stuff to do.”

     

    - Dana Cahill and husband Donato Malavarca have run F-Max Fitness at 1065 Rosecrans St. for about 18 years. Dana said they’ve shifted to offering online workouts, as well as doing one-on-one training to compensate for their gym being closed to groups.

    “About 80% of our clients are choosing to stay at home, so we’re only doing private, one-on-one sessions where it’s just one trainer and one client,” she said. “That brings in some income at least. We’re keeping our doors locked and only letting in one person at a time while making everyone wash their hands before and after.”

    Noting many of her clients are 65 and above, Dana added their facility is doing everything to accommodate them including hosting online, interactive workouts. But she warned, “The reality is we’re scared because it’s a make-it-or-break-it situation.”

     

    - Costa Rican SDSU student Madeline Norman was working for Pizza Nova in La Jolla until she got laid off due to the pandemic. She is now in a bind: Norman can’t return home because the Costa Rican border has been closed, and she’s also committed herself by giving 30-days notice to her landlord.

    “I am now stuck here indefinitely with no job and soon no place to live,” Norman said. “Our particular restaurant already has a staff for taking out and delivery during normal circumstances, so they have priority for what shifts may be available at this point. We have all been urged to apply for unemployment, which I have done.”

    Pointing out she can’t pay for $1,100 monthly rent, utilities, a car payment, and car insurance, Norman lamented, “I hope my landlord is lenient about my paying rent through part of April until my 30 days notice is up and I can move in with friends.”

     

    - “I lost 50% of my income when I lost my job working part-time at a restaurant,” said Megan Stone of San Diego, who has worked as a brewer and has done marketing for local breweries. “I’ve been fortunate to be able to work at home.

    “A lot of my training in the past in brewing has helped me with problem-solving, hopefully, I can find ways to supplement my lost income. I’m also trying to help others with a blog post on social media (@isbeeracarb) showing links to unemployment and other resources.”

     

    SMALL-BUSINESSES REACT

    Small-business owners too are going above and beyond to adapt and accommodate customers during troubled times.

     

    - Megan Carter, owner of Green and Ivy Cleaning Services covering the Peninsula, is preparing for the worst by cutting back.

    “We closed down today except for vacation rentals and move-outs where no one is in the houses,” said Carter, who started her successful business in 2019 cleaning a friend’s home. Added Carter, “My passion is running a business. I clean small restaurants, offices and vacation rentals. Ideally, I would like to get into all these offices that are (now) closed.”

     

    - Pet sitter Allison Shea of Allison Shea’s Lucky Dogs in OB, who handles just about every pet (except spiders), is also grappling with holding the line on securing work and holding her own.

    “We’re all in the same boat,” she said. “I’m just trying to stay calm and not be overwhelmed. But this is my livelihood. I’ve been doing it for five or six years.”

    Shea, who has won the Peninsula Beacon’s annual “Best Of” award for pet-sitters, noted she’s not in bad shape financially. “I’m a good saver. I’ve saved some money.”

    But she was quick to add, “Nobody is traveling now so house-sitting – I’ve lost that income. I don’t spend money before I have it. I’m dealing with it day-by-day.”

     

    - “If you are hungry and want to grab a bite to eat, Konito’s (1730 Garnet Ave.) is open for takeout and is also accepting phone orders,” said owner Joe Bettles. “The restaurant has put markers on the ground so that people picking up food are standing six feet apart. It’s even set up so that customers will be six feet away from the cashier.

    “It’s been hard but our employees are making the most of it and our customers are incredibly gracious with the changes we’ve had to make. We went from an all-cash business four years ago with no phone orders, to now accepting only credit cards, taking phone orders, and soon will be using delivery apps.”

     

    - “To support our community, we are proud to offer free pick up and delivery with any service,” said Randy Begin, owner of Cass Street Automotive at 5165 Cass St. “Once we've picked up your vehicle we are encouraging no-contact and can communicate all details of repairs over the phone, take payment over the phone and then return the vehicle to the original pick-up location.”

    Added Begin: “If you prefer to use our convenient drop-off system, just park your car on our lot anytime and grab an envelope from the small mailbox hung by the front door. Fill out the required information and our staff will deal with the rest of the services electronically.”

     

    - Sarah Mattinson, owner of Olive Cafe and Olive Baking Co., 735 Santa Clara Place, in Mission Beach, has found a way to remain open by expanding her repertoire.

    “We are so grateful to be able to stay open and provide the local community with food,” Mattinson said. “The bakery and cafe have taken as many precautions as possible while we serve the public. Limiting the number of customers inside, increasing the sanitizing of, well, everything, and abiding by the suggested six-foot distance between people.”

    Added the restaurateur: “We are baking lots of bread and pastries to keep up with the demand. We are also offering other essential staples – milk, eggs, butter, cheese, rice, pasta, soup, crackers, paper towels, and toilet paper, just to name a few. We are encouraging call-ins for curbside pick-up as well as local deliveries,” Mattinson said. “You can reach the bakery at 858-291-8222. New extended hours from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m.”

     

    - Olive Cafe is also open for to-go orders, curbside pick-ups and deliveries selling grocery items including produce. The cafe at 858-488-1224 and extended hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

     

    - Insomnia Cookies at 1997 Garnet Ave. is now offering a number of delivery options for “Insomniacs” including those outside of their normal delivery radius. To see if your home falls within the new delivery radius, visit their website and enter your address.

     

    - Another local eatery helping out is The Melt, at 8849 Villa La Jolla Drive. The restaurant is offering free meals (up to $15) for all hospital and medical staff beginning this week. Medical staff just need to show their medical badges. All meals are to-go only.

    The Melt’s chef-created menu features handcrafted MeltBurgers made from a blend of Angus and Wagyu beef, grilled cheeses, crispy fries, homemade mac ‘n’ cheese, milkshakes and soup, and salads.

     

    - Like the big boxes, Crest Liquor Deli at 3787 Ingraham St. in Pacific Beach had a run on toilet paper and similar necessities but store general manager Jason Clark noted, “It’s been pretty busy, pretty steady, the last week or so.”

    He added: “We did run out of toilet paper early-on, which was not really a surprise. We’re definitely making sure we get more. People are coming here now because they don’t want to go to Trader Joe’s or Vons where they know they don’t have anything but canned goods and refrigerated foods.”

    The long-time shop has also partnered with the downtown restaurant Social Tap to offer grab-n-go meals.

     

    - Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market at 4765 Voltaire St. was also holding its own.

    “We’re doing well, though we have depleted shelves for a lot of groceries,” said store manager Sarela Bonilla. “We’ve restricted our entire staff, including cashiers, not to come within six feet of people. We’re replenishing our milk and kinds of pasta and canned soups that had been depleted. On the positive side, the community is banding together.”

     

    - John Gelastopoulos, owner of Broken Yolk with locations in PB and Midway, said his business is down since the order was given for restaurant take-out and delivery only.

    “Things are not good,” he said. “People are staying at home. Some of my employees have had to go on unemployment. My business is down 75% to 80%.”

    Added Gelastopoulos, “We’re giving away free coffee or orange juice to our customers to show our appreciation for their coming in and taking their orders to-go. I just hope this will be over pretty soon. We have to stay optimistic and positive.”

     

    - Michael Saad owner of Point Loma Shelter Island Drug Store at 1105 Rosecrans St., pointed out he’s coping with a tough situation.

    “Everybody is under a lot of stress,” he said. “It’s a very difficult situation to try and run a business this way. But we’re trying to stay open and provide essential services, which we have a responsibility to do. We’re trying to do as many deliveries as possible, trying to have pick-up at the front of the pharmacy where people don’t have to come into the store.”

     

    - Barons Market, at 4001 W. Point Loma Blvd., extended shopping time for customers over 65 to shop at any store location exclusively from 9-10 a.m. The regular market hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. to allow extra time for extensive sanitizing of the store.

     

    - Jensen’s Foods, at 955 Catalina Blvd., has senior shopping from 6-7 a.m. Regular shopping hours are 7 a.m.-8 p.m.

     

    5 BEERS FOR QUARANTINE

    In support of the local breweries, we asked brewer and beer aficionado Megan Stone (@isbeeracarb) for her recommendations for beers to enjoy while stuck at home. Sláinte!

    1. The Pupil by Societe.

    2. Clever Kiwi by Burgeon. 

    3. Rain by Pure Project.

    4. Bacon and Eggs by Pizza Port.

    5. Eppig, and Burning Beard are both making great beer.

    San Diego has a new lighthouse, sort of! The leggy iron tower that has stood beckoning ships at the lower tip of Point Loma since 1891 has undergone a full restoration. Now the old rust bucket is in good standing for another century. And just in time. Straightening a three-degree tilt of the upper two sections and rooting out layers of lead paint and desecration from rust-jacking was no easy feat for independent contractor, Neil Gardis of ‘Ohana Industries, Ltd. and his team of three: Nickolas Bliler, Ryan Strack, and Kevin Goodman of San Diego. “From the start, we were more than aware of the lantern and watchroom precariousness,” Gardis explains. “The upper section supports had deteriorated significantly. A three-degree list doesn’t seem like much but it’s a ton of trouble when you realize that there’s metal failure of support points holding 120,000 pounds. It’s a double whammy!” A QUICK HISTORY Thirty-seven tons of ironwork rolled into town on rail flatcars from Trenton, N.J. in July 1890 intended for San Diego’s new lighthouse. This lighthouse would supersede the operation of the little Cape Cod structure that has graced Point Loma since 1855. The station would be re-established at a lower elevation where the fog and low clouds were less likely to obscure its light. Point Loma Lighthouse was commissioned on March 23, 1891, and has since been the operational beacon at San Diego. Automation in the early 1970s replaced the need for on-site personnel, and thereby, the tower’s deterioration began in earnest. Other forced priorities overtook regular maintenance. Alas, the future of the iron skeleton remained sorrowfully uncertain. TO THE RESCUE: U.S. COAST GUARD FINANCE OFFICE It seems when lighthouse properties are sold into private or non-profit ventures that those monies are used to rehabilitate other U.S. lights. In June 2017, San Diego’s leaning tower was awarded a contract for restoration because of its historic significance and location at the southwestern-most point of the continental United States. Initial Coast Guard (hereafter, USCG) condition assessment of the lighthouse had called for abrasive blast cleaning of the entire tower, and removal and replacement of cast iron components showing greatest deterioration. In September 2017, multi-level scaffolding was constructed around the lighthouse, which for many months was wrapped in plastic sheeting. Abrasive blast cleaning removed rust and layers of paint (some, lead-based). This prepared surfaces for new coatings, although at this point, a sacrificial generic paint was given to avoid ‘flash rust’. Ultimately, at least three coatings were applied to everything. As the Gardis team’s disassembly of the upper lighthouse sections began, it became evident that the condition was far beyond USCG anticipation. Gardis sent a quantitative report with a revision of work to the design office in Oakland. “There was no mechanical way to replace some items and not all,” Gardis says. “A multitude of cast iron components would require complete replacement, or be ‘recast’—about 20,000 pounds of it.” Castings were fabricated in Jacksonville, Fla., in an exhaustive process requiring wood molds and sacrificial sand molds for every piece. Fortunately, the original architectural drawings exist and dimensions were taken from these. Delivery of castings arrived bit by bit, the last not until mid-2019. Though the project took two-and-a-half years instead of six months, and $2.1 million, the end result of this massive restoration is a structurally sound and like-new lighthouse. LIGHTING THE WAY AGAIN A rotating, third-order Fresnel lens served Point Loma Lighthouse until 1997. The rotation had ceased so it was removed by Coast Guard personnel in 2001 and placed in storage at Cabrillo National Monument. The giant prismatic lens, a modern marvel of the1890s, gave way to a small, rotating Vega-25 beacon placed on the outside gallery railing. All the while, the tower stood condemned. In 2005, a new structure — known as the Assistant Keepers Quarters—was completed at San Diego’s only National Park to display the lens. It stands today for all to see at Cabrillo National Monument. During restoration work, the functioning Vega beacon was taken from the railing and attached with the sound signal on a platform behind the lighthouse. On March 4, USCG Aids to Navigation Team, Sector San Diego, but the ‘icing on the lighthouse cake.’ To the excitement of these author-historians, present for its first flash, a modern VLB-44 array was installed in the lantern, precisely where the giant lens was once positioned. The next day, San Diego’s operational lighthouse sent the first signal to sea, again.

    Very interesting piece of history. The photos are wonderful and give you a sense of actually being there. Giant project but they did a super job in restoring a landmark in San Diego. Everyone should take the time to visit Cabrillo National Monument and Point Loma Lighthouse.

    Schools out… for the summer?

    Last week, Gov. Gavin Newsom said most schools will not return to class this spring due to the school closures associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

    The closures have caused teachers and parents to quickly put together resources, schedules and plans to keep students on track with learning goals. In San Diego, the San Diego Unified School District announced a partnership with KPBS and the San Diego County Office of Education to continue to provide learning resources for its students. The partnership will include a TV broadcast and an online component. 

    The TV programming will air on KPBS 2 from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. The content will be aired according to grade levels (6-8 a.m., grades TK through 3; 8 a.m.-1 p.m., grades 4 through 8; 1-6 p.m., grades 9 through 12). The digital component will provide access to a library of free educational videos, lesson plans and training sessions. Schools are also continuing to provide food for students in need.

     

    Having students and young children at home provides time to bond as a family, but it also means parents and caregivers are responsible for keeping everyone busy and engaged. Below are some resources to help better structure the time without it turning into a movie marathon day after day.

     

    VIRTUAL TOURS

    Consider taking a virtual tour. While you may not be able to physically go to a museum or theme park right now, some are offering virtual tours at https://bit.ly/2JbidYw. Try checking out of these national parks in California virtually: Death Valley, Channel Islands, Joshua Tree, Redwood, Sequoia, Yosemite. 

    The San Diego Zoo has a full webpage dedicated to children that include facts and videos about different animals, activities, and games. The Women’s Museum of California has digital exhibits available where students can learn about notable women of California, women in the military and more.

     

    MOVIES AND SHOWS

    Universal Pictures is releasing some of its movies early on digital platforms, including Trolls World Tour,” which will be available Friday. Disney+ released Frozen 2” earlier than planned on its streaming platform earlier this month.

    In addition to movies, you can watch Broadway musicals,educational shows on Netflix, and live cameras from aquariums. 

     

    EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

    Some educational companies are offering free subscriptions during the school closures and Scholastic is releasing free courses daily through its “Learn from Home” website. The site offers projects for students related to reading, history and more. Its projects are divided by grade-level.

     

    You can also take advantage of digital access to San Diego County libraries, which provides access to e-books and audiobooks.

     

    ARTS

    NASA is providing access to its digital images through this website. Paris museums have put images from their collections online. The Metropolitan Opera in New York is streaming live performances nightly.

     

    Consider turning to Instagram accounts for arts and craft projects. These teachers and parents share ideas on making things and fun activities that can provide a break from a screen.

    Get your ex lover back no matter why he left you.

    My boyfriend that left me few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called dr unity and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and after 28hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since Dr unity helped me, my boyfriend is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix .Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: 2348055361568 or Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail. com

    FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUS

    I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had Herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR Sunny cured them from Herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR Sunny because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR SUNNY via drsunnyna@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via 2348077875210. he is good too to cure all type of disease and virus.1 HIV cure 2 cancer 3 diabetes 4 hepatitis 5 herpes. You can contact if you are having any problem...

    My boyfriend that left me few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called dr unity and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and after 28hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since Dr unity helped me, my boyfriend is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix .Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: 2348055361568 or Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail. com

    I and my husband had been very loving, caring and sharing a lot of common things for almost 28 years, and in (December 2017) i was hoping to go traveling with my husband. Whoever we met would comment how much we complement each other. He was a loving father and husband, but he changed without me seeing it. He admitted to one affair and I found out about a next one, and suddenly he came up with the idea of divorce. I became depressed to the point of suicide. I never saw this coming. I visited our marriage therapist several times, but it seemed everything was getting worse. I felt empty and hopeless about the future. We both recently retired and I thought I could spend the rest of my life in retirement with him. I tried everything possible to get back with him, and I cried 24 hours a day and didn’t know how to get back with him until i met with Lord Lugard of the Miracle temple who guaranteed me a 24 hours powerful love spell to bring my husband to return back to me again and Love me unconditionally.I was ready to try anything because I still loved him very much and didn’t want to loose him. Now here we are living happily again after dr unity did his spell in just (24 hours) brought back my husband, and reunited my family back. Words are not enough to let you tell you how grateful i am for your spells. Thank you so much Lord for making me start this year as a happy and fulfilled woman. Here is his Email: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com

    I have been suffering from diabetes for the past 3 years with insulin medication which is very expensive and my blood sugar level very high. I read a testimony on this platform of a woman who was cured from infertility with doctor Nelson herbal medicine including the doctor contact information, I contacted the doctor with his official WhatsApp number which he replied and asked me few questions which I replied. After much discussion he told how his herbal medicine works. After preparation which I paid for he sent the herbal medicine to me and with his direction I drank the herbal medicine for 21 days and my result was confirmed negative. You can contact doctor Nelson through his official WhatsApp number 2348116522191 or email, drnelsonsalim10@gmail.com.
