  1. Is it necessary to make a personal attack in an otherwise fairly civil conversation?

  4. I don't care about such petty things and I'm astounded that someone would turn of pilot lights to save a few centavos. An on demand heater turns itself on when needed. SNORK!

  5. The process has recently been simplified. By air, flying into Guadalajara, officials no longer ask for the FMM form upon arrival into Mexico. Your friends, however, will be asked for the flight number, so they need to know that information and give it to the INM agent, who will then stamp and initial their passports upon the return.

  7. "Visitor in town" makes it pretty clear that they don't reside here. People do travel to places where Yellow Fever is a real risk. Not everyone who posts on this board is over 60.

  8. And aren't you the lucky one then. Some people (1) don't have solar water eg. many renters, (2) don't LIKE on demand heaters.... count me in,(3) didn't squirrel away a boatload of Cana-bucks like you did a few months ago at good exchange rate, and are now watching same diving for seabed by the hour, and / or (4) live on income amounts/sources from ??? that are making them find all kinds of ways to save a little here and there while all kinds of prices here skyrocket.

  11. Putting here because it's the man, not a pet. Happily, Richie survived, but suffered TWO broken hands, at least one broken wrist, a badly fractured right arm, plus multiple contusions and abrasions requiring stitches etc. This because he was between appts., riding a "moto" (gas too expensive) on the carretera west of Ajijic, and suffered a head-on crash into a foreigner's car as she (? unsafely?) exited a gated community out that way. NOT judging at this point.... that's for authorities to decide. At least he wears a great helmet so head remained intact... inside and out...... but he'll be a LONG time recovering, with no way to feed his wife and baby daughter. His older brother tells me the lady's insurance company offered only the worst and cheapest of medical care options. I get that's what insurance companies do, but I hope they will be pressured to do the right thing in this case. I get it's the company and not the lady, but it's still despicable. Fortunately Richie has some kind of health plan that will cover part of the costs of the good hospital and excellent hand surgeon family elected to use, but there's still the deductible to pay, never mind the lost income for as long as it takes. If you're one of his happy clients you already know what a FINE and responsible young man he is, and your well-wishes (and maybe more?) at this time will mean a lot to this most excellent Mexican family who have all served the community here in many ways over the years. And if his mother hasn't made it to you yet (was going around to clients' doors this a.m. ) now you know.

  12. I adopted the kitten in photo # 1, his baby daughter, today and can tell you if I didn't already have 4 adults at home, nobody else would have stood a chance! What a FABULOUS guy. He deserves a great fur-ever home after a pretty tough start in life..... and was oh so lucky Puck and her friend were able to rescue the whole family. 😻

  14. Genesis Digital photography 34 Ocampo lakeside. Last time I had them a few months ago 116 pesos I think. Done to specifications. Guadalajara Farmacia pictures poor quality and will usually be rejected. You can pick them up in about 20-30 minutes at Genesis.

  15. I always use the guy mentioned above by PNR1. I would add that he is across the street and several doors down the street past Manix. I can't remember the name or address, say I in Seattle for my short annual fall visit

  16. Lakeside 7--Maybe because lots of us have learned that IMSS is not an ideal solution. My husband and I paid to subscribe for years. Used it only for flu shots and other local services just to keep the file open. Time to try to use it--a real hassle. But as Natasha says, the need in this instance was raising the cash--not an easy task on short notice for many of us. Lexy

  18. A good way to save some serious pesos. Google to see how much L.P. the pilot light in your gas water heater uses. You may be shocked. I only light when water is needed, which isn't that often. Otherwise, you're burning pesos.

  19. IMO happyjillin was not that civil in this case.... "...I don't care about such petty things and I'm astounded that someone would turn of pilot lights to save a few centavos......" but we all "hear" different things as we read what is written. Trust me...if I'm in "attack mode" it will be FAR more evident. 🙀Point is there are a lot of people these days (origin not important) who DO need to find means to save a peso here, a peso there. Done here now.

  20. Sammy is a darling boy of about 16 months who loves to sit on your lap if you invite him. He is a beauty with great blue eyes and light coat with grey points. He is neutered now and was left behind by my neighbor with his female partner and their three kittens and one other adult cat. He is ready to go to his forever home! Contact me at 33 3407 0275.

  21. You may want to contact Quality Care. I know they have a gastroenterologist that comes on Tuesdays but he (Daniel Briseno) may be able to suggest a hepatologist in GDL. Other options may be to call Hospital San Antonio, Hospital Ajijic or Riberas Medical Centre to see if they can provide any names.

  29. We had a place in San Miguel de Allende, in Los Balcones, with incredible views of the mountains and the Obraje. We chose it and loved it for the climate: cool (even cold) nights (on January mornings you might find frozen pools of water); hardly any humidity, even during the rainy few weeks. Incredible countryside with plenty of Otomi holy sites, excellent hiking and biking and sightseeing. Close enough to larger urban areas such as Queretaro and Guanajuato, and good inexpensive shopping in Dolores Hidalgo. What we did not like was the huge expat community, too huge, which does not help to integrate. But what really ruined the city to us was the insane development, with thousands of houses in dozens of sprawling subdivisions, which stole precious natural land but remain uninhabited. Also the town itself and labour are very expensive compared to elsewhere in Mexico. Good place to visit, but not sure it is an attractive place to live any more...

  30. It's typical Telmex over promise-under deliver. If you cannot provide the service don't "BS" your clients just to get theis r money! Crappy way to conduct business!

  33. Not cheap. A one bedroom will cost $600.00 and up. Now like anywhere you can find deals. I usually do. The sea is incredible. People have had Orcas swimming in the wake of their boats like dolphins. I like Paradise realty for rentals. formally known as Siesta. Ask for Brad and mention my name.

  34. Spencer’s great at spouting off what’s legal and what’s not, but he’s not the one faced with armed guards saying you’re not leaving until you pay… I don’t know about the San Antonio hospital but in Guadalajara some of the hospitals do have armed guards to stop you leaving.

  35. Well said TJW. With the newer uv blocking windshields, I sometimes find it hard to make eye contact with a driver and know they have acknowledged me.

  36. It is very difficult on a bicycle - moto to have eyes in 4 directions on the bicycle path and dangerous when cars pull across it with the driver only looking the other way. It is also dangerous when motorists stop to let one cross the Carretera. There are too many variables, especially at an intersection. A car can pull out to pass the stopped vehicle, a car can try turning from either cross street, not to mention traffic coming from the other direction. Even if your heart says do it, please don't stop.

  37. Dale would do the story in a minute. Not an intrusion on the woman driver's privacy. It was a public event, a sudden accident. It could benefit Richie, more than likely--that's the point. And that's what newpaper reporters do for a living. . . .they report. Lexy

  40. Get a grip. An accident in a laboratory is not an international crime. Yes, we need to determine, if possible, how this happened. But hardly reaching the level of a crime, such as trying to overthrow a legally elected government.
