  1. Thank you all who made helpful suggestions, offered " colorful" personality analysis , and a brief history of an organization that provided horse/animal therapy in the past. A helpful suggestion was received by PM and will follow up with that .. Thank you all again..
  2. Posting for a friend. A Mexican family who moved into my friend's neighborhood and who has a young child who is Autistic. They have heard of a local woman who helps children through 'animal therapy' who have disabilities such as Autism .. Reasearch has shown that Ninos does not have this service available. Does anyone have any information about this and possibly who this person is and how to contact ? Thank You !
  3. Asking for a friend. Looking for a LOCAL clock repair person. Saw previous posts made in 2022 about Guad stores ... looking for a LOCAL place if possible. It was repaired at a place in Guad. in January 2023 , paid 1,500 p - worked for 2 months, and now not working again. A wall clock, LeGant 31 day - pendulum below the body of the clock. Any referrals appreciated. Thank You.
  4. Casa Miau is full . It is a cat sanctuary, not a shelter, that is funded by a couple with their personal pensions. Their creation of Casa Miau occurred when " Anita's Animals" in SJC closed unexpectedly and no other meaningful help was offered / provided for those cats. This couple took all of the cats from that shelter, [ at their expense ] and continue to care for those cats as they age, etc.. .
  5. My Mom used to carry this poem in her wallet, and I put it in my wallet when she died. I think it not only 'applies' to humans, but our pets who we lovely dearly as four footed family members. Clare Harner's 1934 , The poem reads: "Do not stand at my grave and weep / I am not here, I do not sleep / I am a thousand winds that blow / I am the diamond's glints on snow / I am the sunlight on ripened grain / I am the autumn's gentle rain / When you awaken in the morning's hush / I am the swift uplifting rush / Of quiet birds in circled flight / I am the soft stars that shine at night / Do not stand at my grave and cry / I am not here, I did not die."
  6. Just got a whattsapp from a friend saying an accident has occurred on the Chapala Libermiento a short time ago.. do not have detail as to what direction or how serious the accident is , but certainly enough to impact traveling on this road with normal traffic, added with the weekend drivers and the Ferreria travelers.... Be prepared.....
  7. I totally agree with you lakeside7, retiring when you are well and healthy is the ideal, and not when circumstances force you into that position. I was [ still am ] well and healthy when I made that decision for myself after being a nurse for 40 some odd years, and happy I was able to do . And I shared that decision with others, not by a rumor. But with spreading / sharing of this rumor, I put myself in the place of his patents' when they might hears this 'news', and the questions that must be going through their mind :- Is this true ? [ Many calls to the office for a fact-check ] Who said this ? How come I was not told. ? When is this going to happen ?.. I have a test / procedure scheduled in two weeks - what is going to happening now ? Who will now write my prescriptions that I need ? and etc .. I am not being dramatic, rumor spreading has consequences , as in this case it can cause undue anxiety to patients, who possibly already have enough medical stress going in in their life. I
  8. FACT: Dr.Leon is alive, well-healthy and NOT retiring any time soon. This is a Fact, checked with the person who has been written about. After living here many years, it still amazes me that some people like to share: ' rumors' , what 'they heard' and etc. on social media, without naming their source of their information OR checking the source / the facts to verify if it is accurate. Rumors are like squamous cells, spread very easily and cause damage. . It
  9. Since 'rainy season" I have been a 'regular" at the Telmex office and had Telmex out 3 times to do repairs I have only had the fiber for about 3 plus weeks, and gone through some pretty active rain /wind/hail twice/ weather in those 3 weeks , have not lost phone or Internet.. The night of the install date was a doozy, and kept watching my modem, and picking up the phone to test, and neither lost a 'beat' .the phone connection / clarity was better also... I was impressed , .. This is not a Telmex commercial.. I am happily surprised it is working well so far.
  10. About 3 weeks ago a Mx gentleman showed up at my door, asked if I wanted the Telmex fiberoptic, after clapping my hands several times and saying thank you, I said Yes. I was expecting that some date would be set up to do it. Nope, right then an there. He had a clip board with names on it, including my full name, which I do not use generally, so thought he was legitimate . [ and my 5 dogs would have voted no if he was not ] Up on the roof for a while, [ on a hot sunny day ] he asked to see my modem , switched it to a new one . He was very polite and courteous, checked the up / down speed , and that was that. I offered a tip, which he said he would not accept as he was doing his job, but would accept a cold Coke. That night a really hard storm went through including lots of wind and hail, and I did not loose the phone or Internet - a happy surprise, which has not always happened. I am not a tecky person, to know what is good or bad, but just read my speeds: Up is 103, and Down is 179. . I asked about an extra fee for installation or monthly bill, he said no, and when I just paid my bill it was the normal amount.
  11. Foot Neuropathy can be cause by several things, for example ' vascular / circulation, diabetes, etc.. It would be advisable to find out what is the cause for this condition first, and then see the 'appropriate' medical person to deal with the cause. Possibly your family doctor would the the first person to see.
  12. I do not very often post on this webboatd for several reasons .. mainly because of the snarky attitudes and comments, sometimes ‘attacks’ made by others when they express their opinion or describe their particular experiences within the topic being discussed such as this one, which is different than another persons opinion / experience . I feel that many people feel the same way, and do not want to expose themselves to this behavior when they post on this or any other board.. so many people remain ’silent’ . As to this topic, I fortunately have not had to use any of the two urgent care facilities mentioned in this topic. As a friend to several people who have had to use these services, their experiences are unique like they are and the circumstances that they were dealing with. Within the last two months, two different friends have had medical situations and utilized the services of RMC. One friend had a medical emergency in the early hours of a Sunday morning and frightened about the seriousness of the problem and arrived at the ER. The guard seeing that this person have limited mobility assisted her inside, and she was seen immediately by the ER doctor on duty. The doctor actually listened to what the person said, [ sometimes this is a rare trait ] asked questioned to obtain more [ valuable ] information , answered questions and explained what the treatment plan was to be done . She returned home, with follow-up care instructions, a way to contact the treating ER doctor if there should be any further questions to be answered, etc.. In summary the care was appropriate and very good , did not require a bank loan to pay the bill, and the person felt if they had an emergency again the future they would return to this 24 hour care facility. The other person, who has in the past been hospitalized in the States [ so has a point of reference about in-patient care treatment standards ] was an inpatient at this facility for a week of medical treatment, and said that the care as excellent, from nursing staff and physician care, and if circumstances should ever occur again and needed to be hospitalized locally would return to this facility. Now. these two people had positive experiences with RMC, possibly someone else has not. That however does not make their personal experience and opinion invalid. It is their experience, as you have had your own experience under your set of circumstances forming your opinion. I listen to the person who is expressing their own unique personal experience and set of circumstances, ask questions to better understand each unique situation , consider the source, think, and form my own opinion as to who to see and where to go if I need medical care, which I have done.
  13. I am helping a friend who is considering renting a house 'out in the country' in San Nickolas. She is not familiar with this area. She is a single senior female. Can you offer some pluses, minuses, concerns, any personal experience living there, and etc.. Thank you !
