  1. I need to rent a thermal imaging camera for a day or two. Does anyone know where I can find one? The floor in one room in our house is consistently 5’-10’ F hotter than the rest of the floors. We want to find the spot on the floor that is hottest so we can drill down and hopefully find out what is going on. (and no, we’re not in the Racquet Club)

  2. When we bought our home, we called our insurance agent to get homeowners insurance. He asked me “why?” He said that homes here, being built they way they are, don’t need insurance. I thought this is strange (especially from an insurance agent) and wanted to ask: Do you have homeowners’ insurance on your home? If so, what coverage?

  3. Another thing to consider in costs is which hospital you go to. We self-fund our medical care and took a huge hit at Hospital San Javier a few weeks back. My wife had a single stent installed on an emergency basis. Our doctor estimated the cost to be $200,000MX. The surgeon estimated the cost to be $300,000MX. Hospital San Javier charged us $555,202MX. Our doctor and surgeon both expressed shock and worked with the hospital but that only reduced our bill to $480,000MX. My wife was in the hospital one night (she was admitted at 6pm and was discharged at 2pm the next afternoon).

    Be prepared. Know in advance which hospitals you want to use. Hospital San Javier will never be on our list!

  4. I went into iShop (SAT) and tried to ship two small necklaces to my daughter in the US and was told they wouldn't get through customs. I was told stones, silver, gold and some other metals can't be shipped. Are these actual restrictions or is customs that corrupt? Any suggestions on how to get these gifts to my daughter? These aren't expensive necklaces.

    Great.  We are going to the beach in a week but could do it afterwards.  Early April after Semana Santa?

    We are in Ajijic, set it up for any time after 6 April and we are in.  Ours is a 1906 Ivers and Pond upright grand, fully restored.


    I'll do some research and let you know what I find out.

    I'm happy to share a tuning visit with a tuner you all have experience with on a schedule that works for the group.


    HI Mainecoons - I'd be interested in sharing a tuner if nothing has been done so far. Getting tired of hitting those off keys!

  7. Two months ago we had our Chickering restored by Erneztto Infantte Pianos in Guad. Ernesto knows pianos and did a beautiful job. We were going to have him out in about a month to tune us up. I'd be interested in what everyone else decides to do or if you know Ernesto.

    Shopping for a mattress (queen) and have seen some at Furniture 4 Less (near Sunrise) called LIMMCORT, but can find NO information on line about the brand. Also considering a “Wendy” mattress. Experience and/or opinions welcome. This is a far more complicated process than I’d imagined! Thanks.

    Well I'll be damned. Was making the bed yesterday and found out our mattress was Limmcort!. Bought it from Furniture for Less. We've only had it two months so can’t comment on its quality (so far so good - we did buy a foam topper), but do recommend Furniture for Less. We had a problem with the first mattress we bought and they jumped in and quickly solved it. (Turns out most mattresses will eventually collapse if you weigh more than 250lbs.) I was really impressed with their customer service. Prices weren’t bad either.

  9. We have just started our landscaping project with Arturo (from the garden place across from SuperLake and next to La Pacena). We've gotten a lot of good plants and advice from he and his wife (Leti) so have high expectations. Might want to check with him and see about work he's done.
