  1. Check with Julie Hensley; she posts here; she has been ordering new beds with or without frames in many sizes .
  2. Cardiologist Recommendation?

    Husband uses Dr. Hector Briseno at Quality Care; no procedures done as yet but valves are being regularly monitored. Very thorough - ECG & stress test done in his office. I believe he is in on Thursdays but call the office and make an appointment. There was a thread from 2014 entitled Best Cardiologist lakeside; which may give you some insights
  3. Shortcake disaster

    Talk about a deceptive post - title says SHORTCAKE disaster; I had visions of a shortcake, layered in berries & whipped cream that ended up on the floor and the dog ate just before company showed up = disaster Shortbread, now that is an entirely different item and, for a few, a christmas tradition. Hmmm, personally we like whipped shortbread - melt in your mouth goodness. Never developed a taste for Scotch shortbread.
  4. Car Inspection

    For Vehicle Emissions - Note the pin colors - blue - poco holograms (Joco); purple - sufficient holograms. Here is the map - you can zoom in or out; Chapala or Joco for smog tests only. http://siga.jalisco.gob.mx/talleres/

  7. I too considered the decorative wooden walking canes but they were too short. Although they are not splashy, Lakeside Medical has some very sturdy adjustable canes in different colors. Perhaps then you could get one of the excellent artists to personalize it for your friend with local wildlife or what ever. I believe the cane would need to be about hip height - too low will cause back problems down the line. You should also consider whether a single foot/point cane or a multi-foot (4 points of contact) is required. They may need a walker to start before graduating to a cane, depending on their injury/infirmity. Their stability may change over time as their body adjusts and strengthens.
  8. meat pie

    I think it is solely delivery - here is the post
  9. meat pie

    Williams Burg Pies just advertised "French Canadian Meat Pie" $130 pesos delivery on Friday; email is williamsburgpiepays@gmail.com or 3310156102 FYI their chicken pot pie serves 6 so likely the tourtière would also, but you might ask to be sure.
  10. Driver license test address

    Found this on google - https://semov.jalisco.gob.mx/acerca/ubicacion-y-contacto

    This time year we get lots of golden orb spiders; check the web from different angles - it will have a gold or yellowish hue. They get fairly big, lay an egg sack then die. Of the six or so in my yard I think I only have 3 left. If you can get close to look at the back of their head looks like a skull. Oh, they also have fuzzy bits on their legs (like pompoms). Harmless but fascinating.
  12. FYI Sonia, there is something wrong with your immigration/visa page; pictures over typed areas and typed areas overlaying each other. Maybe it's just me but ....
  13. There is a FB page for bengal cats in mexico; ask them what their price is - https://www.facebook.com/bengalcatsmexico/
  14. Check with Dr. Leon's office, they did have a 'women's health' package; picked you up took you to a CHOPO lab in GDL and brought you home - mammogram, bone density, breast ultrasound and pap smear; then you pick up your results from Dr. Leon's office in 2-3 days. Can't remember the price exactly but I think it was less than $2000 pesos.
  15. Catrinas on Chapala Malecon

    I can't find any reference to Catrinas this year on the Municipal site, but it could be a school competition too. If anything was going to be set up likely later this week as events start Nov 2. There are Catrina exhibits showing for Ajijic in the Plaza starting on Nov 2
