  3. Today
  4. That is often the case lakeside.
  5. Who do you use for a Vet? How long have you used that Vet? Have you used more than one and have a preference one over another? I have used a few and trying to decide who I wish to use for a new arrival dog. Thanks in advance for input.
  6. I heard , possibly rumor, that there was a shortage of telmex phone numbers/lines. Anyone know if this is true? I may know someone with a phone line for sale if true.
  7. I understand that in Mexico the average Dr. can not get or prescribe strong pain medications. And that should you really have a need for extra strong pain Medications that it has to be prescribed by a specially licensed pain Dr. So, I guess, you will need to visit your GP who will judge whether you need these meds or not and if you do Your GP can set up an appointment with the pain specialist, whom I was told is in Guadalajara.> At least that used to be the way some 5 to10 years ago.
  8. Incredible, people who are unable to read and comprehend a question and reply to the question without answering a thing. Absolutely amazing. Bizarre and vile no doubt to cut human or animal parts as goodness forbid many times there are health reasons. Severe ear infections from bacteria and fungi in Dobermans with floppy ears. Men, of elderly persuasion in facilities and being taken care of and just a small mindless error of not retracting foreskin to original position and Bam, death, or surgery at a ripe old age. The validity of many things remains today if people listen to health/medical reasons in many cases. In reality I care less that is what I am looking for so or was so very unhelpful responses. There are might I add the American Doberman and the European Doberman, both with different characteristics, thus they are not the same all over North America. Dobermans are not as popular here in these parts of Mexico due to cost one and demand in upper class society due to being guard dogs and pit bulls seem to be a preferred dog here but at a more reasonable price. Dobermans are highly intelligent thinkers, so very smart and many times require a different scope of action than say a Shepherd also incredibly smart dogs but practical as herders, guard or even hunting. Reputable breeder will many times sell you a male and female if you are willing to sign a waiver of breeding or such. Ridiculous statement to say a breeder will not sell a male and female dog to an owner. Has nothing to do with reputation just money. Very simple round about as well so have a friend buy the other dog for you, serious. I am more than happy to have a less popular breed dog, just as have found likely not usually very helpful to get answers here. Yikes. Cannot wait to see responses on my next two questions.
  9. I can't be the only person with chronic pain in all of lake Chapala. Would even travel to Guadalajara for my meds once a month. Any help would be more than greatly appreciated. I have horrible fibromyalgia with debilitating fatigue, arthritis in my neck low back pain from a joint in my spine. I was recently found disabled in the US and came here for the climate. Thank you Jodee chappell
  10. Well you may not be the "businessman" of the par excellence of other posters on this forum but you are certainly a "patron excelente". I know if I were a gardener which one I would prefer working for. ! Saludos !
  11. Bisbee Gal is correct. Zacatecas Catherdral. The promontory in the background is el Cerro de la Bufa.
  12. The only one of you who made a constructive response was Kyle, than you for that. JB summarized pretty well the impression someone visiting might get of this group. Sad. I'll add this suggestion, when paying cash try and have change on hand so you can pay close to the required amount to begin with. Then stand there and count your change before walking away. Mistakes are made and yes some cashiers like to short change. Closed.

  14. Sent you a PM Time for Moderator to shut this thread.
  15. You are always telling us you are a business man and therefore we should believe you when you say professional gardeners have their own tools. I guess I must be doing something wrong because I treat my full time gardener as a full time employee and I provide all of the equipment. He walks up to my house every day and then walks home and no he does not carry his equipment on his back to and from work. Oh, he does bring his lunch. He has been working me for about 18 years now. And he gets all of the benefits given an employee, you know vacations, health insurance , sick leave, Etc. Etc. Does it take 45 hours per week to do all of the gardening, normally not. But my property manager said that the total cost of a full time employee is much better than what is charged for a part timer where he would work about 35 hours per week. At least that is what my property manager said. I have been told that a professional gardener would be charging about $85 pesos per hour while my full time gardener makes maybe $58 pesos per hour. Oh, oh, he is not getting underpaid. He gets more than three weeks vacation each year, his health insurance is more than $20,000 and on and on
  16. The original post, needed no postING. Just cluttering up this board with his cr*p as usual.
  17. Lot of judgmental people here. The original post needed no response. People must really get off in putting Eric down. Hope that makes your day.
  18. Apparently, we need to prepare for these phone calls ...just in case 馃檮 鈥楪ood morning, According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.' 'OK. Can you tell me who that person was?' 'I'm not able to tell you that. That is confidential information.' 'Right. Um... so ....' 'But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?' 'Ok (gives address)' 'Thank you - and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalize this and send the kit to you.' 'Sorry - a payment card? I thought this was all free?' 'No - I'm afraid not. There is a one-off fee of $50 for the kit and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you're ready.' 'No - that's not right. 'I'm afraid it is. Can you give me the card number please - this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.' Puts the phone down. This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it.鈥 Don't fall for it...! COPY and PASTE watch out ...馃が Tell our elderly.
  19. Yesterday
  20. Hmmmmm....even if so, you still could have refrained from shouting it in public in order to give yourself an "atta boy."
  21. Eric, once again you seem to think that a public forum is the place to post a blow-by-blow of your daily life. Perhaps you should start keeping a diary, instead.
  22. Yes gringohombre, you are correct. But most people here have a smallish simple yard and prefer to employ the small guy who really needs the money.
  23. JoyinMexico - are you on Facebook? There is a lady named Joe John on the south side of the lake that has been posting dogs on Lakeside Advocates for Animals. She posted a male poodle and a 4mo old female ??. https://www.facebook.com/groups/LAKESIDEADVOCATESFOR/?ref=bookmarks
  24. My rational, as a businessman, is that professional gardeners have their own machines and tools...Works for me!!!
  25. Eric, why did we all need to know that? Why did you just smile and walk away if it bothered you that much? Many people will try to get one off on you if they think they can. Just count your change in front of them and tell them they missed changed you. Of course they will say they accidentally miscounted and usually they will right their mistake. Times are tough for many people here. Just smile and demand your full change, problem solved.
  26. I would never compare a gardener to a plumber anyways it is a lot easier to carry a monkey wrench around than a lawn mower and a weed eater. Many gardeners don't make the money to afford all those expensive tools and a truck to carry them around. We have always provided the tools and have been fortunate to have them take good care if them.
  27. Eric, go talk to the manager. Any good business will give you the 100 pesos to keep you as a customer. Then you can post back how honest they were and restore their reputation
