  1. I've been in Canada for over a week and all supermarkets are and have been out of flour and yeast - apparently, because people are isolated in their own homes, there is a surge of baking, especially bread baking (what could be more comforting?), going on .... back to basics in many ways
  2. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez and support from Anne Dyer who makes it all easy
  3. I have had nothing but the absolute best support from Ron Magen. He answers all email right away and makes sure to look into and rectify any problems and answer all questions. I have solar water heater and solar electric panels and have nothing but praise for him.
  4. When you see Hector tomorrow can you please ask him about the illegal gate that La Floresta has erected over the arroyo between Lazaro Cardenas and La Floresta?  I am now out of gas and my daughter and baby are here for a month in Riviera Alta - it is impossible for us to walk with a stroller on Lazaro Cardenas and down Revolucion - we need to get to Walmart for groceries ... why is the gate there? It is only pedestrian access and puts a lot of people into a dangerous situation if and when they can't walk out. This also happens in the rainy season when the road is impassible because of that gate - it is a matter of safety, not just convenience .... can you please help? Thank you for all you do - I know you do a lot and this might seem like a trivial problem but it is making it very difficult for many people - especially those without gas who can't walk 

  5. I think horse or cow manure is good composted - just not a good way to deal with dog poo
  6. I always flush the contents of my plastic poop bag in the toilet .... I still don't know how I would pick it up and get it to a toilet without plastic but I suppose I should try using those wax paper bags. If they are making flushable ones, it's wonderful news but would our sewer systems be able to handle them - we can't even flush toilet paper. Further to this - it appals me to see poop wrapped in plastic rotting in garbage cans - a recipe for all sorts of diseases. I have a compost pile but I don't think you can compost anything but vegetarian animal excrement? I don't know but it's important to be thinking about the garbage we are making - including the stuff that sewers, not garbage dumps, were meant to dispose of.
  7. At the Mexico City airport I needed a wheelchair because of a sprained ankle. Another woman, also using a wheelchair, was in the same coach of the train that connects the terminals as I was so I asked what the proper propina would be because she was Mexican and would know what was fair. She said about $200 pesos as the guys who were pushing us were not allowed to go back on the train but had to take a taxi or walk back to the original terminal with the wheelchair. It's different at the Guadalajara airport with only one terminal.
  8. I have run into very rude newcomers here in the past couple of weeks - thought it might just be a coincidence but now it seems it's more than a harmless blip - there are a lot of people coming down for reasons that have nothing to do with loving Mexico and its culture .....
  9. Please check the message I sent you regarding the knee treatment.

      I'm so sorry if I didn't reply - I guess I haven't been on the board for a while! This was at the Sports Medicine Clinic on Eglinton Avenue near Yonge Street - and - so far, so good!

      Thanks for the information... Glad to hear that all is well! 

  10. I'm interested in your Sports Medicine clinic treatment. Was this the Bobby Orr Clinic at York? Could you please contact me so that I may have further information?

    Thank you,



  11. Days - or maybe it was one week ----- faster than I could have expected, in any case
  12. I have been relying on Ron Magen (STI) for a few years now - first for solar hot water and now for solar electric. I cannot praise him enough!! Absolutely Amazing customer service, backup, care, immediate attention to any problems and his guarantee is totally honoured. The condo association where I have my home also found him to be the best, as far as price and reputation, and entrusted our overall solar electric to him. I heartily recommend him.
  13. If you're still in the US, is it possible to test whether or not you can receive texts (I understand you can't receive phone calls for free) within the data plan you have? Would really love to know as my kids never call, only text ... thanks, Diana
