  1. El Granero is beside Gossips Restaurant...or opposite the Ajijic Clinic...or a little west of Multiva but on the other side of the highway...or a little west of Actinver but on the same side of the highway.
  2. Well, those Telmex guys can eat at Mom's any time...I haven't had such good internet service on a Friday since I moved into Riberas 2 months ago. Knock on wood!
  3. Next to Ladrone's clinic and also the place in the same plaza as Lake Taco...at least for dogs.
  4. https://www.comfortis.com/ Comfortis is available for cats...I just don't know if it's available here for cats. It has been a lifesaver for me because keeping my girls (dogs) still to apply frontline by myself is darn near impossible. Comfortis is a chewable tablet that they think is a treat. Sit, dose, forget for a month. No fleas.
  5. This is what I bought from Amazon.com and had delivered by Hugh (with other things). It's still going strong and is BLACK as opposed to grey which is what happened when I had other cartridges refilled here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NOA7UT2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Please note the price.
  6. I'll stick with Computer Guy Mike Reilly.
  7. It will be easier to turn right (if coming from the West) or left (if coming from the East) onto Rio Bravo because Rio Bravo doesn't have any topes. Then turn right on Ocampo and go a couple of blocks to the correct corner. Reverse to get out because neither the extension of Ocampo from that point or De Las Flores (with the topes) are any fun.
  8. I can hardly wait! Glad to have you back!

  10. Kevin and Gringal nailed it. I wasn't going to reply to this post because things have changed since we lived in San Miguel...from May 1st of '96 to October of 2004. We did go back for a visit about three years ago and were dismayed at the changes. You could shoot off a cannon in the Jardin where every day used to be a vibrant mass of people...all the streets around the Jardin have been made strictly pedestrian which is difficult for those with limited mobility. Let me say for the record that I flew into Guadalajara for a fact finding mission in January of '96 and stayed at the Danza del Sol. I was not impressed with either Ajijic or Chapala and thought I would roll over and die of boredom. That's why I chose San Miguel. It was a happening place back then with more things to do and classes to attend than I had days in the week. Having now lived in this area for five years, I wouldn't dream of going back to San Miguel to live nor to San Pancho in Nayarit where we also lived for six years. Things change, places change and people change....... no matter what anyone else's opinion is, you must experience things for yourself and decide what's right for you.
  11. Yes, the Lancet is a more than suitable source. However, sometimes conventional medicine doesn't work and people look for alternatives. Until you are one of those people, you won't ever get it. I remember when Chiropracters were also considered quacks. An interesting read... http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1847554/ I suppose you're in the group that doesn't believe in the benefits of medical marijuana either? Sometimes it just takes time for the "proof" to catch up with all the anecdotal evidence.
  12. Likewise...If you can prove that it IS a fraud, please do so. I have benefited from homeopathy twice...my dog who was very afraid of thunder and fireworks always calmed right down with Rescue Remedy. I recently benefited by taking Ignatia for grief. Each to his/her own.
  13. My heart goes out to you Oldyfeliz. You need to get your Doctor to refer you to a pain Specialist. Only they can prescribe the medication that you will need. Tramacet ain't gonna touch the pain imho. These specialists are Doctors who are trained as Anaesthesiologists first and then additional training after that. The medicines they prescribe are so tightly controlled by the government that the prescription is in triplicate and has a bar code on it. One for the Doctor, one for the patient and one for the pharmacy that fills the prescription. Not all pharmacies even stock the kind of meds that you're probably going to need. I'm talking about Buprenorphine, Fentanyl, Methadone and Morphine specifically... They don't always work but a good pain specialist will keep in touch with you via phone and/or e-mail and can help adjust dosages according to your feedback. I sincerely hope that something works for you. Pain is a four letter word and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
  14. I am also good for the internet now Mike the Computer Guy left me with one of his modems that he KNOWS works...but it didn't so it was very helpful in determining what the problem wasn't. The guy who lives next door contracted for internet with Telmex on the same day that I picked up my new modem and he was also having problems. He had a service call in to Telmex and, I think, when his problem got fixed mine also got fixed. I'm just very grateful to be in contact with my kids in Canada again. I did lose a telephone connection tonight when there was a wind gust so there's a loose connection somewhere but the modem lights were steady as a rock. Knock on wood.
  15. I just moved to Riberas. The internet with the old modem was fine but I wanted increased speed. My new modem is a living hell. Half the time I can't connect...actually more than half the time. So, for the 10% of the time that it works I get great speed. Oh how I wish I hadn't tried to "improve" my situation and just left well enough alone. I wish you luck and a Telmex genie to help you out.
