See Johnny, that is exactly the type of offensive, personal comment that leads to you getting banned or getting a time-out. I wonder why you feel the need to continually make snide comments about the ones you perceive to be older females on this forum. "Happy Hour Girls", "Sewing circle", not to mention disparaging comments about older female anatomy, paint you as a dismissive misogynist. In fact, you know nothing about the women on these forums, yet you assume we get together for happy hours and gossip talk while working on our quilting.
Maybe try to curb those tendencies and stick to interesting posts and helpful or humorous comments. Because those aren't humorous comments to anyone but you and don't add anything of value to this board.On 2/28/2019 at 8:49 AM, IMBurnen said:
What nonsense. If you don't like what you're reading, don't. This is a forum based on, I hope, freedom of expression. I find Jonny's notes to have meaning at times, at others not so much. But banning? Are there pitchforks and torches next? Shame.

Too much is boring, but many posts are quite entertaining. Others may chose the 'Ignore Function', or just scroll on......
"Ignore" and "scroll on" are the choices for anyone offended by johnny, but the Narcissistic will stay and fight johnny and provoke others.

Coke stopped using cane sugar in Mexico about five years ago, except for export. (There are many sources for this; here is just one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_Coke)
So, the coke we buy here has the same HFCS as the US coke.

Oh long enough, I am just a slow and cranky student, If I want to buy a house, I do not want to hear how easy it is to build a house. Just answer the question and be on your way, folks.
Just wait a while and there will be a few who will jump down your throat for your response. Always happens when you do not believe the way they do. Kinda like how the left responds to the right. You are not entitled to an opinion that differs from them. They absolutely can not stand for that. And, of course, I will get some for telling the truth about them. We both will probably get told to go somewhere else if we don't like it here. So goes life on this Board.

As has been discussed and discussed before, if someone asks for a source for a product, it is not entirely (or even a teeny bit) helpful to point out that any fool could make it themselves.
You haven't been on this Board very long, have you? You haven't learned how "helpful" many members are here.

What amazed me about OXXO is that bottled water in some of them is more expensive than coca cola. Coca Cola sure is pushing that stuff. At least its made here with cane sugar instead of poisonous high fructose corn syrup back in the states and other places.
Seems to me one needs to find out how driving in done in a new country and join in, or you risk more accidents and possibly death. NOB, my cousin was ticketed because he moved over to let a hwy patrol pass and the hwy patrol gave him a ticket for driving on the shoulder. That is how it is done NOB, but not here.

What exactly is your problem ? You keep making an ### out of yourself for no reason.Grow up. Why is it necessary for you to personally attack some people here?

Good! Now how about Peña Nieto, Calderon, Salinas, etc., etc. to follow who are the real criminals.
Remember, who gave Chapo to the US ! The Elites will sacrifice anyone to protect their power. That is true in any country, NOB or SOB.

We take the normal precautions we did NOB, not one thing different. We feel just as safe as we did NOB — and, in some cases, more so. We never considered this “paradise” and still don’t. It is a lovely, lively place to live. We are having fun, a lot more fun than we would be having NOB. So, when you speak, please remember that you are speaking only for yourself and those sad people who think like you do. Sorry about that pig you’re stuck with but we are loving our purses. They may not be silk, but they are a beautiful, durable fabric that brings us pleasure every single day.
Actually, most here at Lakeside never had anything near what we have here in "protection", for our homes NOB. Sure, with all the "protection" we have installed here, most feel that their home/belongings are generally safe. (Since we don't have insurance in case of theft here). I'm sure there are some that do have more fun here than NOB, but I can tell you as one who spends about 1/2 time NOB, to enjoy the weather there, we have as much or more fun when there., So when I speak, I am referring to myself and my better half, and those intelligent people who see things as I have described them. Do we enjoy Lakeside? We have not cut all ties NOB, nor are we forced to stay here for other reasons. We would not continue to return if we did not enjoy our time here. We do admit that we have been staying longer and longer NOB each trip, Still come back.

Thanks, Alpha1, good to know when/if in Guadalajara.
Returned from Maskaras, 1 chest x-ray (Siemens digital machine) and office visit combined, 700 pesos, fair price, I think. Pneumonia.
BTW was told the new San Antonio hospital to open in April, so let's call it May.
Get a sputum culture so you know which antibiotic will work against it and do not have to guess.
Have they taken a culture of the mucus you cough up? That can tell a lot. Hopefully it is not Klebsiella Pneumonia, as that can be very hard to treat (like 21 days of levofloxacin ) and cross your fingers that it works !
Good luck !.

The poster who believes he has the right to walk with five unleashed dogs has the kind of attitude that makes it difficult for all of us to occupy the same space in comfort. It's possible that the man "waving his arms" has had a previous encounter with dogs where he was hurt and has been in fear of them since.
My wife has the scars from a childhood incident with an unleashed dog. Every time she sees an unleashed dog, she gets behind me and is terrified. She should not have to relive that experience in a city park, or anywhere else. Some people have absolutely no feelings when it comes to another innocent human being.

My comments were for the ones that were making general statements/assumptions about the health care here.
Too bad you and others had a bad experience by picking the wrong doctor/hospital/clinic.
Yep, totally OUR fault for picking the wrong doctor/hospital. We will try to do better like you next time, ok? Will try to be more like you.That make you happier?

That's right. Rush back to your foreign trained doctors in the US. Just because it is the US it must be better, right?
Those of us who go NOB for health care actually go there because in our own experiences here in Mexico, the health care WE receive NOB has been MUCH better than WE have received here in Mexico. Can you please not "put us down" because of our experiences? You are welcome to your doctors and health care, why can't you respectfully allow that for us without "putting us down"?

Okay. I'll go back to Google and provide several more references that will, essentially, say the same thing about where the U.S. ranks. I chose that one because it was most recent. I'd save the salt. It's not good for you.😉
Back again: The query I used for Google was "where does the U.S. rank for quality of health care" The following was one reference for a long page of other references which anyone who wants to do so can check out on their own. I know that this is not what most people have been told or want to believe, but there it is.
What I don't understand about some posters is why they find it necessary to provide "statistics" that try to justify that they made the "right choice" and anyone who 'did not make their choice is a "loser". Do they really feel so insecure about the choices they have made that they have to continue to put others down so they feel good about their own choice? What works for one often does not for everyone. I think it would be valuable to quit putting others down (that includes the countries of their choice) and simply show some respect for everyone being secure in their own choice and decisions. You do not have to agree with their choice ( because your experiences have been different), but "shame on you" if you try to infer they made the wrong choice because it is not what you chose ( sounds like .what is happening NOB?) Everyone does not have to agree with you to be right in their personal decisions !

So you think calling him a Conservative is an insult?
No, actually I think that was 'a compliment. The insult was when you "ordered" people to not listen to him. I repeat, who do you think you are?

This is terrible. Let the person have their say and let us decide if we believe it, or not. Who do you think you are?

Am I imagining things, or is this turning into a big, fat, POLITICAL discussion???
Naah. Couldn't be, could it?'
But since the glass is already broken, I have a question about Hud's statement:
" This Republican Congress has never had enough votes to do anything, but they would have the same situation if they did have the votes. So, the administration is left to do the best it can with drug/human/illegal traffickers, with little to work with. It is sad that more people do not understand what is actually happening in the US Government. Many things are not what you read and hear"
Since the Republicans held a majority of votes in BOTH houses of Congress, are you claiming that the Republican POTUS wasn't able to get anything done? Seriously???
As far as I can determine, what's actually been happening in the US Government lately would cause the U.S.Constitution to weep if it could.
The President does not control the Congress, The Presidency is a separate branch of government. Each has their own function and responsibilities. (I wish people knew more about how the US Government works).( Surely because Government was one of my undergraduate degrees does not make me the only knowledgeable person about its workings on this forum?) I would suggest that you really brush up on US Government before you make a statement like your last one that is impossible to defend.

Here's the administration speaking for itself in June 2018.
That is just words taken out of context and interpretation of what was said. That is not what was suggested in that presentation. However, I see that you are not interested in the truth, so that in itself
tells us a lot, no?
SUP on Lake Chapala
My take is that there is lack of interest for this activity for the same reason there is lack of interest by extranjeros for swimming in the lake.
