  1. Update from RIchie after doctor visit....only to keep those interested in the loop

    "received both good news and bad news ...the good news is that my left hand is doing very well and is gradually welding my bone, they were surprised at my good progress. but the right wrist, a bone moved a lot and a fragment of the radial bone came off and they will have to do surgery again. They haven't told me what day yet but it will most likely be the following week. I am very sad and upset."

    That said,  he no longer has to wear any kind of support splint on the left hand/wrist so he's very upbeat about that part.  Onward and upward ☺️

    Other options: 1 - be sure the house aljibe (if it has one) is topped up 2 - put a small tinaco on the roof and tie it into the house piping, a lot of homes do this as a backup to their pressure system "just in case".    Gravity fed water is a lot nicer than moving it by the bucket.    🙂

    Many houses here have at least one bathroom with tub.  Fill it. Remove water as needed for whatever.

    Give this a try and see if it is more like what you have in mind.

    Click on "Settings" (gear icon)

    Scroll down to "Theme"

    Click on "View All"

    Scroll down to the pastel colors

    Click on "Soft Gray"

    Click on "Inbox"


    Does this look like what you want?



    Did that (following youtube video)   Soft grey came out quite dark  in my opinion   decided if I have to live with blue it's better than grey   but THANK YOU for tryiing

  4. Oh my friend.... if it were only so.  No idea which email..... and most likely I did hit a wrong key combo but I can't apply your remedy now.  I did go into settings and in "themes" got some alternatives..... but NONE gave me the plain white background I had before.

    Webpage markups have gone a long way to be able to be in your computer systems with hooks it's ridiculous. I don't have the FAINTEST idea what this means but I'm sure it's tech conspiring against me..... again.  But appreciate your effort.

    "Fine quality" is subjective, imo, but for a large selection of what to me are high priced bed linens, Bed Bath and Beyond can be found in Guadalajara. 

    Agree chapalence...... but expz could add to BB&B:  Liverpool ( Galerias or Plaza Andares), possible other stores in those malls, Costco ( for boring pale colours but "appear" to be quality).

    ....Another nail that's unwelcome given all the other issues that we have here with new regulations for financial reasons

    And why should YOU be any different than everyone else dealing with ever-changing and tightening financial regulations?

    Maybe he is pushing the recovery process. I just saw him in riberas.

    At the moment he takes several little dogs attached to a "thing" on his belt while she takes the big ones on their leashes. They do as much as they can manage. But I erred earlier (apologies)....     clearance from doc means  starting physio/rehab therapy..... and not that he's "good to go" by a long shot.

    It is annoying hearing the bones grind once in awhile waiting for healing.

    LOL  Except bones grinding might be better than no bones at all?   Casts are gone.... replaced with some kind of splints  ( sort of like ...but different from...the ones I used to wear for carpal tunnel) and sees the doc for x-rays this week.  IF all goes well, he hopes to get back "in business" by next week..... adding his wife as a permanent partner in their dog-walking enterprise.  Still with limitations, but making good progress.  Mental attitude is always key.  Need to pay food, rent etc. great motivators too. 😉

    Gualberto replaced the igniter in my oven yesterday. My experience is that he often does not answer Whatsapp calls but does answer non-Whatsapp calls to his cel number 331-026-5450. 

    Gracias.  Guess I'll have to keep trying until I get thru.
