  1. 2 questions for the mods: Is ACD a friend of yours, that he is allowed to derail thread after thread with his unhelpful blithering and unsatiable, obsessive need for attention and stirring up conflict? Not to mention leading to threads where people are simply seeking legitimate information being locked? How do you think this forum appears to newcomers when you allow trolls to reign? Sure we can put him on ignore, but newcomers see all the posts.

  2. Besides working about 5yrs as a respiratory therapist I went on to get my BS, RN, CCP, and RDCS. I’ve worked in several US states, IMSS of Guadalajara and Hospital Pavia in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Believe me, you don’t work more than 45 years in the medical field by having limited knowledge. And I’m a He.

  6. Yes, you've said that about 20 times now on every vaccine or Covid thread you can find. Saying something 20 times doesn't put it into the realm of fact. You're incredibly tedious and seem determined to derail every thread where someone is simply looking for specific information, not your opinion. Don't know why the mods allow you to continue your trolling unabated.

  7. "But for me I address these issues using Mexican logic" So in your opinion .....Mexican logic is to lie and cheat? And to do criminal acts to receive benefits? Sorry but everyone in my Mexican family is 100% opposed to crimes to receive personal benefits.

  9. Apparently Lisa Jorgenson has resurrected an old email list or harvested a new one, because I am receiving copies of the "Lake Chapala Reporter" and the "Guadalajara Reporter" trolling for subscriptions. I removed myself from her mailing lists years ago. The two site are a scam - she "borrows" stories from other papers and charges a subscription to view them. Her URL is guadalajarareporter.mx. Don't waste your money, it just encourages more fraud. For anyone who doesn't know, the actual site for real Guadalajara Reporter is https://theguadalajarareporter.net

  11. You really should start trusting someone around here. They have been handing out flyers every day as a promotional campaign basically since they started in the area. They obviously don't need an office here, not right now anyway, because they are doing gangbusters business this way. They are the fastest and most interested in getting people hooked up, unlike iLox, who show great contempt for their customers, and a disinterested laziness in installations and support. There are not "many people" handing them out. Often there is a team of two; more often just one. They are working on commission, something any good businessman would know about. Thus the white space and handwritten numbers.

  15. What I've noticed is that no matter what the service is, from a dentist to insurance agents, is that there is always SOMEONE who has a bad experience and complains, naturally. However, it's the majority experience that counts. Bellon has been my experience for years and it's been fine; however, I'll admit we've never needed to use them to process a claim. w

  16. If it's not your private life, what is it? Someone else's? You showed us an unnecessary photo of your chimney, an unnecessary photo of your grill, and a completely unnecessary photo of your meat. The OP that you refer to asked where to get ocote and your first answer was more than adequate. The rest? Ego.

  18. "Inability to tolerate "difference"" No! Inability to tolerate malicious lies that harm innocent others = Facist propaganda. This is exposing bigotry and passing on useful information to bebunk the hundreds of malicious lies you are spewing here. There are no facts or truth in your "difference". It is all propaganda; putdowns and name calling.

  19. Ask yourself how many times a week you choose NOT to go out because you just don't want to deal with traffic. Every decision to stay home means less dollars added to the economy. Despite this being my first post, I am a long termer here, still working. This is just an issue that finally made me sign up to this rather cantankerous board. I am hearing lots of friends saying they are looking elsewhere for their winter stays. Add debilitating traffic problems to land costs that are getting at the same level as better managed places, and the advantages to choosing lakeside are quickly disappearing. So much so that I am thinking of leaving too. The traffic issue in Ajijic not only limits what can be done in a day, which reduces competitivity, it increase business costs, fleet costs, it reduces quality of life, increases safety concerns, absenteeism, adds slow emergency response times and a host of other issues that are beginning to sound a death knell for the area. It is a very serious issue. I am beginning to think Ajijic will go the way of the dot.com industry. Great while it lasted, but once gone, it will never come back.

  22. Our dog was born in 2005, while we were living in Chapala, and is still with us 16.5 years later, in spite of her breed's expected lifespan of up to 16 years. Perhaps it is due to her calm disposition and being born into a cohete environment, where she never flinched at the explosions. Some say that a dog mimics its master's reactions to such events. I think that may be true, as those who complain about cohetes seem to have dogs who are also upset about them. Cohetes are just another part of Mexico's culture, and expats should learn to accept that fact. Asi es la vida.

  23. After 10 years here with cohetes going off every few days, I`ve realized there is no point in asking "Why?". Could be a birthday, another type of gathering, couple of guys sitting in their car late at night just setting them off, some guy down at the lake ripping a few or it could actually, as the cultural explanation goes, be a fiesta. At first, I went crazy, asking everyone "Why?" and getting angry each time ("How dare they disrupt my peace?"). The Mexican always just shrugged their shoulders, like "yeah, so what, what can you do about it?". Now, cohetes are just part of my landscape. My aural mind has evolved. But I don`t have dogs or cats so I don`t have that predicament and it must be pretty awful. So, unless you want to do battle with the priests, and you know the cops won`t do anything and the neighbors won`t do anything, you`re going to have to find a solution for yourself and your dogs.

  24. The other thread about this was locked because it got so stupid. Now you are bringing up a quote about TUESDAY as though it was made today. HSBC was closed TUESDAY. Other poster verified the same. There were no lights inside, the gate was locked, and they did not answer their phone. One ATM was missing, one had a sign NO MONEY and the account access ATM seemed to function correctly. There was a sign on the outside glass door CLOSED with no explanation. Seemed very odd for a bank. I reported they were open on WEDNESDAY . I spoke with the manager on WEDNESDAY and was told they had a system outage and knew it would not return to working on TUESDAY. Unless you think the manager was lying to me and at least two posters encountered the same signs and situation are lying GET OVER IT And yes they were open on THURSDAY today So CLOSED TUESDAY OPEN WEDNESDAY OPEN THURSDAY

  25. Those side effects are not funny at all. I suggested people check with their dentist before starting these meds. I went through it and found that many doctors and patients have no idea of the dental consequences of these medications. I posted my suggestion in the hopes of enlightening people, not to offend anyone. I always appreciate others who share their first-hand experiences, especially those that could save me a lot of pain.

  27. I personally would book a consultation with either or both Dr. Haro's office in Riberas and Dr. Barragan in Mirasol. I am not confident that Dr. Haro is even practicing much any more but his office is certainly well recommended. Dr. Barragan is a sure bet for me. There are others of course but why not start off at the top!

  30. I will probable be thrown from the group but I think a possible threat poses a position more ethical. SEVEN SPANISH ANGLES LEGAL TEAM is a scam and even Guadalajare Reporter has banned advertisements from this company. They rent cars,wills everything to make you feel comfortable moving to Ajijic but other reputable lawyers will give you reasons not to deal with them.

  31. A colleague of mine (a lawyer) was a volunteer guardian ad litem (appointed by local Court) for elderly persons who had no family, or no family nearby their elderly relative. Almost all her cases were the elderly poor on Medicaid. She never had a problem finding a Medicaid bed for new patients or patients who 'lost' a bed in a facility due to hospitalizations. Medicaid beds were not always found in the nearest facilities, sometimes she'd have to drive 20 miles to a facility with a Medicaid bed. Medicaid beds were sometimes in rather posh nursing homes; other times her cases were given beds in less than desirable facilities. It was luck of the draw, though my friend was pretty savvy in getting her cases moved from facilities she either didn't care for or were a long drive, to better and closer facilities when beds opened up. It's not as if all the elderly poor in bad health are living under bridges in the US. Every elderly patient at a hospital is assigned some sort of social worker whose job it is it work with family if nursing care is needed post-hospitalization; they will assist in finding Medicaid beds. If the person has no immediate family, the social worker will refer the case to a local court where a guardian will be appointed. While the care here in Mexico is more to my liking, in the US there is a safety net that does not exist here, to my knowledge. Mexican culture assumes the family will care for their sick elderly. If the person being discussed cannot find a nursing home here that is willing to accept his total income for his lodging, care and medications, going NOB may be his best option. Perhaps the OP, in addition to seeking a facility for his friend here, should also contact the local Agency on Aging where his friend would relocate to in the US and make inquiries. I applaud the OP's stepping up to help his friend....buena suerte.

  32. There is one problem with the 'going north' scenario.... well maybe two. One is that maybe the person doesn't want or can't go north. It's not like one can just get in a car or on a plane and arrive somewhere to be taken care of. The second is that long term care is NOT covered under any NOB insurance including Medicare.... So it would be Medicade right away IF a place could be found. AND it will be in a double or triple room with about 10 square feet with NO privacy. Just there babbling until one dies. Mexico on the other had provides superior care for the elderly, in a more humanistic way. I've seen it first hand.

  34. I am about to order gas. I last filled my 180 litre tank in December of 2019. Yes, 2019. I have an on demand water heater which has no tank and no pilot light. It lights via piezo ignition automatically when the hot water tap is turned on. It requires two DD batteries. I have changed them once since installing the heater in 2016. And I cook using the stovetop... but have an electric countertop oven. No worries there either since I have 5 solar panels and my electric bill has been zero since March of 2018.

  40. True that there are no codicils in Mexico. Speak to a notario, not an attorney. There are plenty of really good notarios around. I personally respect and trust a notario in Chula Vista - Luis Enrique Ramos Bustillos - 376-76-60190.
