  1. Volaris indicates at the beginning that they allow one free luggage (25 kilo) and two carry-ons. They are sneaky and try to fool you. At the end, when it's time to pay, you have an additional amount for the medium luggage that you did not choose, and you cannot change it. Now, they have terms for bags (light, medium and heavy) to justify their cost. Also, if you are not careful, you will also pay for the seats that they choose for you if you don't indicate that you don't require them at this time. It’s also difficult to get rid of it. I booked with Interjet even if it was $38 more. I just can't accept to be fooled. Interjet were sneaky too a while ago, but their web is improved and they are clear.

    Hope so cause I was ready to switch for Google for a while already but, it's a nuisance. Thanks for your reply.

    Yahoo news

    I received this note from yahoo. If you haven't heard, Yahoo plans to sell its operating business to Verizon. We anticipate the completion of the transaction to occur in June 2017. At the completion, the Yahoo operating business will join the Verizon family of companies, and Yahoo Holdings, Inc. will be offering the Yahoo services you love and enjoy. Will it change anything?

    Wow! Thanks, ComputerGuy. It might just be what happened. This is very clear. I'll work on it again and let you know how it went.

    Positive experience at Walmart

    My issue is NOT with the yellow color from feeding them Marigold but with the RED coloring spotting at random and showing in the juice. If that was from food, you would not have this red, definitely red, not yellow.

    Positive experience at Walmart

    Years ago, the chicken skin was yellow, yes, but it did not have that red color spotting the skin with whatever tint they use. It's not the feed. I don't see that red anywhere else but at Walmart. It's not spread evenly and definitely shows spots of red tint. Am I the only one noticing this? I laughed when I read this from Chillin: The yellow (for these types of chicken) comes from an underpaid meat department clerk using a paintbrush and natural dye (could very well be from flowers). He might have a point.

    PDF files

    I've been doing a lot of things to solve this problem. I succeeded in re-installing my all-in-one with the link (below) except it just did not pick up the right one. 1310 kept coming back and I kept replacing it with 1315. I thought I had it but at the end 1315 was there. The result is that now I have the same problem except with 1310 on my screen but it works the same as before. The PDF file is still missing in my list. I cannot get my files in PDF documents but in pictures. This link (below) is exactly my case. Unfortunately, I've got an additional problem: as I bought everything in Mexico, they picked up that the language did not match. How fussy they are!!! But it did not seem to affect the download because it changed my software. I'm not giving up. I'll try again another time. Right now, after 2 hours of this mess, I need a break. Oh, yes, now I also have something extra: Photosmart Essential and a few more things I don't need. Thanks everyone for your information. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/LaserJet-Printing/PSC-1315-software-for-Win-7-won-t-convert-scan-to-PDF/m-p/5325712

    PDF files

    The PDF File is not an option any more when I scan from Hp all-in-one computer in windows 7. It suddenly disappeared. All the files that I scanned earlier this month have been changed automatically in JPG in my files. PDF is not supported by Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, so I have to open them in Window Photo Viewer or any other photo programs. I only have JPG, BMP, PNG AND TIF in my scanner list. I have to use a program to convert my JPG into PDF. What a bummer! Did I do anything wrong?

    I believe the add coloring to their chicken. You can see red pockets and red juice inside the package. I complained many times and they say that they don't. Others say that they add natural coloring because customers prefer it to white chickens, other say it's that Jamaica Sorrel or whatever. Who is right? It does not look too appetizing to me.
  10. Humm!! Let's try this: When calling a cell starting with 333, you dial 045 before When calling a cell starting with 331, you dial 044 before. I don't think they are long distance, but if they are they are free on my Telmex bill. The 376 is not a cell number but a landline and there's no 045 or 044 before just 01
  11. When they mention the best temperature they mean the average temperature, also taking into account rain and humidity. I don't know of one PERFECT place (12 months a year) that would satisfy everybody's own body thermostat. It is true that Chapala has two months of colder temperature (mostly at night) where we have to wear warmer clothes (no boots and gloves though--not for me anyway) and hotter in the spring BUT, as an average, it is not so drastic as northern or southern countries. Most of us know what that means. I lived in Canada and in the Caribbeans for many years. So, to me, Chapala is the best of the two worlds. "Perfect temperature" at least 9 months of the year. I would personally consider 10 months as the warmer spring does not bother me , , , but that's only me--not most people. So 9 months is pretty good.
  12. If you compare the temperature chart of Cuernavaca and Chapala, it's almost the same with a few degrees more or less.

    From what I found out, squatters have no more rights. They need to have a lease or permission given to prove that they are allowed to stay; otherwise they are illegally living in a house and can be taken to court and charged for trespassing. I've seen this happened about six years ago. Of course, if the owner does not know and does nothing, then the squatter gets away with it until something is done about it--no more statute of limitation.

    Municipal residence tax

    True, and they know that, for 500 pesos (or less), when the fee is already so low, people won't bother and that's why they get away with it. Discrimination, yes, but in my opinion, this is not a serious enough matter to bother the court with it. I understand and agree with the municipality's decision. The LAW should be changed accordingly, that only the poor retiree should have that privilege, not the Mexican (or foreigner) who has an expensive house and can afford to pay such a HIGH TAX. I know you will disagree (mainly for the principle) and many will want to cut my head off, but that's the way I feel.

    Dentist Recommendations

    I believe you, Lizzy, and I feel for you as I went through hell myself for two years. I would like to share this information hoping this will help people decide before making a clear choice. What qualifies surgical specialists to place dental implants? Dental implants may be the best option to replace a missing tooth, but remember that there is a difference between “dentists who do implants” and “dental implant experts”. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and Periodontists are the only surgical specialists recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). As part of their surgical training, they attend post-graduate residency programs. Oral Surgeons spend an additional four years beyond dental school in a hospital-based residency, including a full year of anesthesia training. Periodontists attend three-year surgical residency programs following dental school. The formal training and education alone is significantly greater for surgical specialists than for general dentists. The following questions can help you determine whether a non-specialist is experienced with dental implant placement. How many surgical training courses has the dentist taken and how long was each course? Did these courses comply with the recommended guidelines for meeting the legal standard of care for surgical implant placement? How many courses has the dentist taken specifically on the management of complications? How many continuing education courses on implants does the dentist attend on a yearly basis? How long has the dentist been placing implants and how many implants does the dentist place each year? Does the dentist refer complex or difficult cases to a surgical specialist? How many bone grafting procedures has the dentist has done? ================================================== I should have known better and be more careful in my choice before I had work done to my teeth because I went through hell just to have amalgams replaced in two good molars. I ended up with root canals, crowns, extractions and finally implants. At least, after my bad experience I did my research and had a specialist do my implants and crowns in Guadalajara with excellent results. P.S. It is true that Dr. Haro's office quotes us in US$. They will convert it if you want to pay in pesos, but they still go by the value of the US as most of his clientele are foreigners. He makes a mint right now.
