  1. Dear Moderator, because this is an important community service announcement regarding details g poisoning, we think it should remain on the Ajijic Chapala board. It could be left here as well. Far too many animals have already been poisoned...they died a horrible death. More people read the Ajijic Chapala board than this, the animal one. This person must be stopped and I think for the well being of our pets, the street dogs, and we humans, you could leave this announcement on the other board. Many thanks.

  2. I initially gave this extra exposure by allowing threads in the general forum. Now that everyone is on alert it is better to have these threads where they remain high on the page for an extended period rather than being crowded out by general topics. I've also pinned several of the topics to make sure they remain highly visible until the killer or killers are caught. Appreciate your input but I think we'll continue on with this arrangement for now.

  5. This investigation is ongoing. Long overdue surveillance methods being introduced and put in place to continue to protect our community. All areas of our Lake Chapala community are at risk, until we state otherwise. Please add these three phone numbers to your cell phone. Lina Doyle 33 1350 4122 and 108-0525 Lina speaks both English and Spanish Chuni 33 1064 0814 (Chuni speaks some english) Once in your cell phone, if an animal is poisoned, even if you only view it while driving by, you can call the two contacts, giving the location and info to the correct people.

  7. Hi Bill I use CBA, ANZ & Aussie credit/debit cards & my CBA ATM card here with no problems. Generally I use HSBC or Banamex terminals and the fee is 30 - 33 pesos ($AUD 2.20 or so) per transaction. That said, I have been charged up to 100 pesos per transaction (generally ATMs within OXXOs - the Mexican version of 7 11) in tourist areas like Puerto Vallarta) Of course your bank sock will sock you on the forex fee later so it will be a matter of working out which is better/cheaper. I also used to use Scotiabank for the same sort of fee but they recently changed their ATM in

  9. Yes, when virgogirl asked and I said "NO", I knew of this situation but it did not seem to reasonably fit her circumstances. Still doesn't.

  10. After trying two other dentists, I settled on Dr. Don Olivera at Mascaras Clinic and was satisfied with him.

  11. IMSS sends representatives on Monday and Tuesday a.m. to assist those applying. There are waiting periods for covering pre-existing conditions. It is NOT impossible to get, as one poster claims. Both my husband and I have carried it for over 8 years, although we have not used the services. It is not free: the cost varies, based on age. Seguro Popular costs less and depends on the individual financial circumstances. Anecdotal information: A friend's good friend has Seguro Popular coverage and has developed colon cancer. Seguro Popular does not cover the cost of chemo. treatment. Ano

  13. Most times implants can take 3-4 months between setting the implant and having it secure enough to put the crown on it. Beware of the quacks that say it can be done in a couple days.

  14. If you're coming from out of town and want to see a busy dentist such as Dr. Barragan, be aware that appointments are three weeks or more after your call. A friend visited last summer with the notion that he'd get the whole dental implant procedure done here less expensively than in the States, but was only going to be here for a month. Didn't work out.

  15. Dr. Candy now has a "sedation room" for people who have a lot of pain during dental work. She is a second generation Dentist, her father is semi-retired and makes all the crowns. Very up to date equipment and top of the line materials. Dr. Barragan is good too. But he never mentioned to us that many of the NOB dentists have overfilled the filling, and as you age, they fracture the tooth. Mind you, not many can afford crowns and implants in the North. A filling there can cost as much as a crown here.

  16. One of the most-recommended Dentist is the office of Dr. Eloy Barragan. Also in that office is Dra. Consuelo del C. Sanchez. I have used both and have been pleased with their work and professionalism. Both are fluent English speakers and are located in Mirasol between Ajijic and Chapala. Local 765-5584 eloycy@hotmail.com Another often recommended Dentist is the office of Dr. Hector Haro in Riberas, also between Ajijic and Chapala. There are other dentists in that office also. Fluent English spoken. 765-3193 hectorharodds.com Both of these offices will be a tad more expe
