  1. So much to look at regarding anxiety and depression. I hope you would consider fixing the problem rather than medicating it. It's rough trying to medicate. Parathyroid gland controls whether we feel depression Which means the pituatary gland could be down Check the colon Anxiety is controled by the adrenal glands. i've had my own fair share of trauma and trying to deal with anxiety and depression. Working to fix the glands that are down has been the most successful thing I could have done for myself. I was just saying to my husband today that this is the first summer in years that I can recall me not feeling depressed after several cloudy days during our rainy season. What's made the difference? I worked on all my "stuff" years ago but I needed my physical body to get onboard. Over the past year I've used bovine glandulars. Most recently used parathyroid glandular. i'm off of it, you can only take them from 1-3 months at time and maybe need to repeat 6 months later. I have no depression, in fact, I'm thoroughly enjoying our rainy season ❤️⛈☔️ I also have been cleaning from the inside out with a new lifestyle of aka detoxificacion. Made night and day difference. If you're interested in more information about it, send me a pm and I'll do the best I can to help. Pharmaceuticals are a mess and won't cure anything. I had some mental health issues in my 20's and the md's and physiatrist had me trying all kinds of meds back then, literally felt like my brain was frying, awful. Why didn't those Md's tell me I it was the birth control pills that were causing my problems and get me off of their meds? I was fortunate to learn from a friend, get away from meds. I have to deal with PTSD and doing well pharmacutical free! Best well wishes!
  2. Was it worth it? What are you using it for? Is it strong enough to relax muscle spasms?
  3. What's it good for and how much does it cost?
  4. They were suppose to have it done last November but anytime would be fine. The hotel paid to bring it in, thank you hotel.
  5. I recommend Matt Neighbor, owner of Eco Smart. He's our solar expert, knowledgeable, keeps up with all of the latest with many years of experience and competitive prices. 376-765-5310 331-041-3456 http://www.energiaecosmart.com/
  6. I don't believe in big pharma, or pharmaceutical technicians and I won't be duped. I do believe in a good surgeon and ER for broken bones etc. I'll send you a pm. Maybe we could meet up for tea. I've been fruitarian raw vegan since January along with taking herbs and glandulars. I'm not into isolates. A lot of people have noticed I'm on my way to Wellville as I eat my fresh fruit. For those not educated about healthcare, There's an informative film streaming for free called, "Bought." Worth the time to watch it if you're one not aware. Pharmaceutical drugs don't cure anything, they only treat symptoms and cause more problems, they're acidic and we need to be base/alkaline. If you're interested in reversing sickness, you can unless you wait too long to do anything about it. Even late stage patients can improve their quality of life by eating raw fruit. http://www.boughtmovie.com http://www.boughtmovie.com
  7. They do sell Rhode Island Reds here in Mexico but I don't know where. The year I had laying hens, was the year there was a school project for the children with chicks. After the project was over, the little chicks went to the garden "center" behind Super Lake. She had so many of them that when I asked her where she got them, she gave me one. It was a beautiful hen. One day I opened the front door to find my young boxer pup with the Red's leg/foot hanging out of his mouth. One of the funniest things to see but very sad for the hen. The American Game flew over the fence. One little lady came back to see me periodically in the evenings. The last time I saw her she brought me one of her chicks to see. After that the rainy season began and I never saw them again. I think she would have liked to have come home but the dogs kept her out. The only other lead I could possibly give you is to talk to Nahum at Hope House. At one time they had a project for dual birds which later fizzled because it costs so much to feed them. They had the kind that were good eating.
  8. the pet store in Chapala sold me 5 chicks, potential laying hens, which I patiently waited to grow and start laying. 5 months later they began to crow. I'll never trust him again. Ask the lady who sells organic eggs when you first walk into the organic Tuesday market, where to get some laying hens. Walk in the entrance and turn left. She also sells organic beef, chicken and goat cheese I just heard there's another organic market that'll be opening tomorrow in the nursery next to Tobolandia 10:30-2:30, there may be a lead in there. I had a terrible time finding laying hens. When I finally got a couple of really good ones, I'd gone on an adventure and literally bought them from a crazy man in Ixtlauhuacan after he got them out of his trees. bwahahaha They were American Game and they are excellent layers. They're also very sweet.
  9. my other 1/2 bought a decent looking used car a few months ago. He was pulled over in Tlajolmulco for having a cover on the license plate. I was sitting in the car trying not to be nervous when my husband took out a screw driver and took the license plate cover off. Apparently, his vehicle could legally be impounded for having the cover because it could possible distort the letters and numbers. The officer asked what he was doing? My husband said he tries to teach others to do what is right and if a cover on his car is wrong, he's going to take it off. The officer shook his hand and we came home.
  10. hmm, I've been driving in Mexico for 11 years, 9 years lakeside and last Wednesday I was talking on my cell phone while passing Soriana and got pulled over. I was like duh! Normally I at least have a head set for my cell phone but for some reason didn't have it with me and was making way too many plans while on the phone. I deserved a ticket. Cop came to the door, I exclaimed, "oh my goodness, I was talking on my cell phone and completely forgot what I was doing, I need a ticket...this is my first time ever being pulled over!" He asked for my license and registration. He asked how long I've lived here. Asked if it was my first time being pulled over here, "yes, first time!" I answered. I asked for my ticket, I was at fault. He refused me my ticket. I said, "but you need the money." and insisted he give me one. He said it wasn't that much and it was his job to keep me safe and give me a warning.
  11. Wow, what a great lead! Love this info... one 00 flour only has 10% protein content, one 11%, one 11.5%, one 14% http://www.le5stagioni.it/en-US/products.aspx how is one going to decide which protein content makes the best pizza? I don't have a big need to rush out and get this brand when I'm good with what I already found.
  12. Was this addressed to me? I apologize Chillin and I'm not sure who you are behind your screen name. Are you in the bread baker's group on fb?
  13. Mexman, don't be so hard on yourself but you'll do what you want. What would be fun to do is get a bag of Caputo 00 flour, which just means it's extra finely ground flour, yes I know where Caputo comes from and I'm aware of the protein content ranging 11-13+%. So which Caputo 00 is going to be considered the best flavored, the best flour? There's several brands of Caputo 00. So we get a small bag of the flour from say, Superlake or Superama. And then have a pizza throw down between a Caputo 00 flour and the extra fine pizza flour at Sam's Club. Protein 11.5% Did you try it? If there's anyone that wants to make authentic Italian pizza, it's me, I love making pizza from scratch. I went and spent a little bit of time with an Italian, from Italy, who owns and operates a pizza restaurant with a wfo. He put my mind at ease about the stress of finding the Caputo 00 flour because the flavor develops more from the fermentation, don't we know. Granted, I've tasted flours that I didn't care for but I think you'll like the flour at Sams Club if you'd give it a chance. If not, have your friend bring you a bag of Caputo 00, you can order on Amazon and hopefully they'll be no problems at the border. It'll be an expense but if that's the hassle you want. http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives/2011/06/the-pizza-lab-on-flour-foams-and-dough.html maybe this will help you relax a little: caputo 00 flour protein content 11%, so what's to say 11.5% isn't good enough if it's ground 00(extra fine) http://caputoflour.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/00_Extra-Flour-BlueBag-SPECS.pdf http://caputoflour.com/ Mexman, if you're who I think you are, I've tasted your pizza crust, I wouldn't fret about it but do get a bag of Caputo 00 and have some made from that so you can say that you did. Aside from an amateur like me, no one will ever ask you if you're using Caputo 00 flour. The other thing that I understand is Caputo 00 has a higher gluten content, which I have yet to read the gluten content on any flour bag aside from the Italian flours. Which is one of the reasons I think people base their thinking on the protein content. Anyway, I've added gluten flour to my doughs, why not add gluten flour to pizza dough? Then I always wonder how much? To me, learning how to bake in the wfo is still something I'd like to master, I don't have buffalo cheese but still am told my pizza is the best. Are you going to get a buffalo to make the fresh cheese or will cow's milk do?
  14. It's called extrafina and you can buy it at Sam's Club.
  15. We built our pool two years ago and installed an EcoSmarte water purification system and are very happy with swimming in drinking water. If anyone is interested, you can send me a p.m. for more info about that. We also opted for PebbleTec finish vs a tile. There's only one certified Pebble Tec dealer in Mexico and they're based in Puerto Vallarta but travel all over MX installing, it was worth it.
  16. Homedepot carries those products if you can't find them here locally.
  17. gringal, she has gorgeous long hair herself, so she'll be able to make your hair look like a million ;0) I'm not sure if she has some special magical mirrors but I think I look more attractive when I look at myself sitting in her chair. lolol
  18. I called Maria Teresa early Saturday morning on her cell phone asking if she could see me before Christmas? A couple of hours later I text her and we texted back and forth. She decided to work today, Sunday, because she's so busy on Monday. 3 p.m. I went to my hair appointment today, the Sunday before Christmas. Let me say that she's going to be a hit here for sure...a keeper. Believe me, who doesn't love feeling a bit sassy after a great hair cut? I told my husband it was the best Christmas present I could have gotten this year. My hairstyle is a graduated A line bob. I said to her that I imagine she's cut a few of those haircuts. She sweetly replied that it's a very basic and first haircut taught at Vidal Sassoon. Well, I can't say for another style but this girl(yo) with low density fine hair has her sas back after that cut and is pretty much giddy about it. The cowlick, which most of the population of the world has one or two, is not a problem any longer. The salon is classy and well lit. She is very attentive. When a beautician is busy and has great hair herself, that's a real good sign. The land line is being repaired tomorrow hopefully but by all means, call her cell phone. She's very pleasant, likes being punctual, bi lingual, kind, not pushy, loves working and definitely gifted at it. Best of all she understands fine hair. A few years ago, there was another Vidal Sassoon stylist that used to cut our hair for a small fortune per cut...there were plenty of us that were willing to pay that and it was bit of a hardship for me at the time but I went on occasion. We all had great hair then too! I know some of those same clients have found their way to Maria Teresa as she said she's been incredibly busy. I'll gladly pay 300 pesos for a cut from her. https://www.facebook.com/mtpanache
  19. I had a cut a couple of days ago and was once again completely discouraged...the graduated A line bob isn't graduated high enough to give that poof in the crown that we all love. Well, after sharing some pictures with a niece hairstylist in the states, she gave me the correct terminology and I found some tutorials on youtube in hopes to possibly fix it myself. Whatever I was doing and learned 5 years ago just wasn't working anymore. Could you imagine that maybe product and technique was the problem? Yes, the cut still isn't exactly like the picture I took in but it's a heck of a lot better than before I watched the tutorial. So, thought I'd post the tutorial for some of our lakeside ladies who don't like to back comb and still need body in the crown. Places like Sally's Beauty Supply in Guadalajara sell the product that you may be looking for to give you fuller looking hair. I just didn't realize that what I was doing wasn't right for the style. I have extremely fine low density hair and now look like I have a full head of hair again...no shame. The gal in the tutorial has 3 colors in her hair, which make it even easier to follow her "lines" while styling. It's good enough that maybe I'll go back to have another haircut where I've been going but am willing to try another Vidal Sassoon stylist for sure! If the cut can be easier to style, less fuss, that's what I'm looking for. I think even the gal that's been cutting it would be shocked to see how good my hair looks because she can't finish style it for nothing...I always walk out anxious to get home and do it myself.
  20. Turnin is a Mexican brand semi sweet dark chocolate sold by the 6 kilo box at Costco. It's also sold by the block in Abastos in the paid parking strip mall where they sell everything from flour to chicken feed. The store next door is a bakery store that I went into and bought some parchment paper. But, they sell parchment paper in Sam's Club next to the bakery section in Palamar. Crema de Mente is peppermint/mint I bought in the Gourmet Store in Guadalajara, I'm also looking for almond extract but my ride didn't take me there today. Superlake doesn't have almond extract right now. I left the last pumpkin for you at Superlake to bake and make plenty of fresh puree...I just couldn't bring myself to pay $207 pesos for it. So I pulled some left over puree from last year out of the freezer, it froze well and tastes fine...I'm sure all the nutritional value is gone but in cheesecake, who cares! Happy baking!
