  1. Just so you know, my reason for posting the 2nd link/article is that it lists and links many (myriad) studies on both sides of the cancer debate. Personally I've observed changes in soil microbial populations following glyphosate application to associated plants [however never recorded data].
  2. Of course they did. There are arguments and studies pro and con the industry. Causing cancer is the main thing looked at but there is also ecological harm to soil to consider. A review concerning cancer; https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26883814/ The debate and a myriad of studies; https://usrtk.org/pesticides/new-analysis-glyphosate-studies/
  3. Glyphosate has become a tool of convenience for most grain farmers. It is used to kill off the crop (hasten senescence) so they can harvest when the sun shines. As a result glyphosate is found in virtually every bread and cereal on the planet. [and subsequently every human]
  4. Looks like I got the year wrong or it was altered since I read about it - 2024 https://www.agricensus.com/Article/Mexico-s-Supreme-Court-ratifies-glyphosate-and-GMO-corn-ban-18938.html
  5. I believe his son is there running the place. I think I paid around 400 pesos for a very good cleaning.
  6. Just a little heads up to dog owners. As I was walking my dog up Hacienda (?) into Villa Nova I saw a 'gardener' masked up and spraying glyphosate (Roundup) on the road's edge so I turned around. I cannot present any dog specific studies right now but there are numerous studies presenting evidence of harm to humans. I do know as a soil microscopist that it does not dissipate as rapidly as claimed by manufacturers. I suggest keeping your eyes open for this if walking your dog. I believe it will be banned in Mexico effective January 2023.
  7. Interesting. So she is a dental surgeon? If you don't mind telling, did she complete a satisfactory implant on you? What period of the time did process take place over? A Mexican friend reported getting 2 implants several years ago in La Floresta (can't remember name) which were completed in total over several days. A friend in Vancouver reported the same. The dentists here, who I asked, complete them only over several months.
  8. I know that Dr. Carlos is not at DE. I had a long discussion with him wherein I asked him if he does the implants or brings in a surgeon. He brings in a surgeon, as I stated. If he did the implants, I would have attended his office. I then asked his opinion of the surgeon who is brought in by Dental Express. He said that he is a good surgeon, therefore I went ahead with the appointment at DE after a discussion with their surgeon. I was blind sided by the additional costs as mentioned, which was the major point of my post. Perhaps you misunderstood what I was attempting to convey,
  9. I believe all local dentists bring in surgeons from Guadalajara to do implants. This is the case with Dental Express and Dr. Carlos. If you get an implant at Dental express be aware of added costs. The advertised price on the sign out front only covers the post; not the filler (bone graft), membrane nor tooth (crown). The actual cost is more than double of that advertised.
  10. If you like alfalfa, it competes with weeds, once established and if seeded heavily. It also puts nitrogen into the soil, it is a useful herb and cuttings can be soaked in water for 24 to 48 hours for a plant fertilizer. And it makes pretty flowers.
  11. Free shipping from Amazon Mexico but 4900 pesos; treaded tires and elevating leg/foot rests
  12. I also bought one (for the boy who lost his leg) on Amazon. Quick delivery, good quality for the price.
  13. Yup. Unbeknownst to me when it happened. Nudges, lessons ongoing 😎
  14. We made contact and will pick him up after she gets off work. Sheesh; she saw him jump and put him in her car; if it was me I would have chased down the vehicle he jumped from. The life and times of Buster.
  15. I found a Facebook posting by Leilani Gilmore She has Buster. If anyone knows her please pass her contact information to me or phone Marcos!
  16. The dog Buster that I told the story about jumped from a moving trailer yesterday. We searched everywhere for hours and no sign. This morning the guy at the dog social place by the cemetery said he saw a post online about someone picking up a dog that jumped from a trailer. If anyone know anything please contact me.or Marcos at 332 954 4349
  17. So far as the danger component, I drove down in my 94 motorhome diesel pusher and took 3 nights taking my time. Contrary to advice I camped over at Pemex station-truck stops. I never had a problem and found Mexican truck drivers much more polite and giving than their Canadian and American counterparts. [I had stayed at truck stops all across both other countries]
  18. As already mentioned, I would (and will eventually😎) use PVC sewer pipe cut lengthwise to fit and PVC glued to downspout (with storebought or custom fitting). Edit: I saw a very professional job done of this somewhere around Superlake.
  19. Update; After a thorough search, my buddy found his dog tied up in a yard. He had been grabbed off the street. The grabber demanded 300 pesos to release him. I suggested 100 and he won't be charged with extortion which he instantly agreed to. Buster is now happy with his new family and won't be walking off leash again.
  20. I tried to PM you but it did not go through. Can you check what's up - maybe PM me.
  21. Last week a lady who wanders about Ajijic handed off a small dog to my friend Marcos. She begged him to take the dog, claiming it to be a stray and she has too many dogs already. Marcos took the dog, kinda caught unawares. The dog had a long hanging choke chain so Marcos surmised the dog must have a home so turned him loose. The dog would have nothing of it. He instantly bonded to Marcos. He would not come to me, only Marcos. We even shut him outside of our rental lot while we worked but he stayed right there. The dog followed Marcos back to my house after work and, unfortunately my dog would not let him in. When Marcos went home the dog followed him. He left him outside but he was still there in the morning. I've never seen a dog bond with a person so instantly and steadfastly. Marcos decided it was meant to be and decided to keep him. I gave him a spare leather collar and leash. We walked the dogs together as a get acquainted measure and both behaved perfectly. Marcos used my outdoor sink to wash and brush a ton of grime from the little dog. His boys loved the dog. He was given the name Buster. Last Sunday the dog vanished while walking off leash with Marcos and his boys. They were on the bike path near Rio Chamela (corn fields). They figure he finally decided to go back home or....? It would be nice to know what became of this nice little dog. If you know of anyone who had their dog disappear for several days and show up with a new collar and bathed or maybe someone who picked him up as a stray, give a shout out. I guess him to be 2 to 3 years old.
  22. Solution to storing my motorhome
