  1. Dra. Anna at the Seguro Popular community clinic in Chapala is a palliative care specialist, although she practices as a general care doctor. She might have some leads or interested in helping to form a publicly funded hospice. The General Hospital Occidente in Guadalajara has a palliative care ward and just opened new "Geriatrica" wing with 345 beds. They are to serve a need for the entire state of Jalisco, but also house another wide range of specialties. I'm a bit confused though, a Dra. there told me that in the Mexican version of palliative care, the patients do not stay overnight. So I don't know if it is a hospice or palliative or geriatric care specialist you are looking for. Dra Anna would know, you have to get there early and join the lineup for when the clinic opens, then a lineup begins at her door just before 9 am (last door on the left in the waiting room), and she books appointment for the morning or later on that day. I mention this alternative, because some private doctors/private hospitals will bleed your wallet dry (not Vetteforron though). Dra. Anna speaks good English and seems to be a very kind and caring person. I hope this information is correct, she may have been doing her one year of social service which is required to become a doctor, at least in Jalisco. Best wishes for Kirk.

  3. I've had Netflix USA for a couple of years with a VPN. When I have had my internet connection drop, the VPN drops, too. Without the VPN, you wind up on Mexican Netflix, which has many of the same programs, and you can set the language to English. I also need CC due to hearing problems, and while all the US programs have CC, some of the Mexican Netflix programs do not. You can also set it up so that you exclude programs without that option. You need to be sure that the VPN is connected when you are ready to watch U.S. Netflix. Sometimes it gets sneaky.😎

  4. If you are watching Netflix anywhere else in the world outside of the USA without a VPN telling Netflix that you are in the USA, you are NOT watching Netflix USA EVER even though you might think you are. Netflix knows by your ISP EXACTLY what country you are in, and will send you that country's feed. You can put that in the bank! Why the language changes, who knows what eveil lurks in the heart of internet. A month or so ago, my Google decided it would be in Spanish. I have the NCR set correctly; I change the language to English and before I can get back to do a search, Google has changed itrself back to Spanish. In the language situation, I'm sorry that I can't help you. I'm still trying to help myself.

  5. Maybe, I wasn't wrong. If you had Netflix USA, you must have a VPN. If you are now receiving a Spanish language feed, you are mosrt likely gettingNetflix Mexico. Check your VPN!

  9. The Chimalli Axixic group had an appointment with the presidente at 11 am today and he didn’t cancel, just didn’t show up. Second time he does this. The Reporter and other newspapers were there and will report this week. The meeting for the public is in the plaza of Ajijic this Saturday at 4 pm. I hope those interested in more information and joining the group will come.

  10. I just checked my Mexican Netflix and it is still in English. You change the language on your computer. I switch it to Spanish when my maid and her family stay here and back to English when I return.

  12. The truth is businesses, and the opposition, will never allow it. That and the many "protection contracts" in big business in Mexico. This is not something the President can just "do".

  14. The doubling of the minimum wage will cause prices on nearly everything to sky rocket as well. Then the peso will crash and people will really suffer. Every thing in the country has a labor component and some of that is probably minimum wage there is no way it won't show up in the price of the goods or services.

  15. If Canada and the US are any indication (and these are moneyed countries), there will be no "skyrocketing" of minimum wage.

  19. Am I missing something? Why do people want to deposit checks? It's so easy to sign up with one of the online currency exchange houses and transfer $ online from your NOB bank to your Mexican bank. And it's not necessary to pay for a wire transfer- it can be done through EFT transfer. BTW, I've been using Bancomer, various branches, all over the PV/Bucerias area for about 15 years and never had all these problems people talk about. Online banking not difficult either. Just don't go at lunch hours, or the line-ups will be long if you need to use a teller. I always bring a book.

  20. There is so much possibility for significant changes to those programs with the new national administration coming on board. I wouldn't jump from or to anything new at this point.

  22. Perhaps we should be looking at a more serious problem..cause and effect situation Are there now more people with anxiety problems then in the past .What are the reasons for people to be suffering. Maybe with need to to show more compassion , like folks suffering from Post dramatic stress. On reflection, I recall our kids always had to take along a blanket or favourite Teddy Bear when traveling
