  1. Hi Catbird...I lived in Ajijic for about five years (1999-2004) and still visit occasionally. I have lived in Morelia for a total of 8 or 9 years, with a break when I lived for 8 years in Mexico City. I've been back in Morelia for exactly a year. Morelia is home for me. Morelia bears absolutely NO resemblance to Lake Chapala--except that as you mentioned, the weather is similar. It's generally cooler here than there, and can be quite chilly in the winter. Our altitude above sea level is 6400 feet; Lakeside is at 5200 feet. Morelia is a colonial city of 1.2 million people; the

  10. plus what difference does it make? I live in a historical, pueblo magico and they have a Burger King on one of the pietonal street and a MacDonald in one of the shopping centers and we all survive it and can get a burger if we feel like it. Ajijic is no pueblo magico and it has OXXOs so why not a hamburger franchise..it sure would not destroy the look of the carratera...😄

  14. I have not tried it with a modem but there should not be a problem at all. The Telcel service with the modem runs on the same principle as using my phone as a hotspot. As long as you have a Telcel internet plan you could use the modem that comes with it. I plan om bringing a modem down in Sept and I am sure it should work.

  21. I have had experience w/homeowner insurance here. What is important is to remember that the Devil is in the details. Read the policy (you should have access to an English version if you are not conversational in Spanish. You will find 649 exceptions/things that are not covered. OK, I'm exaggerating, but you get the idea. You also have better have receipts for anything you want to make a claim on, like the watch you bought 6-years ago in Texas. If your house is broken into, there must be physical evidence of forced entry. With all that said, it is cheap and if you ha

I see that you have been sucked in by alleged environmental groups sponsored with millions of $'s by certain US Corporations to put the silly tar spin on what is oil . How about we stick to discussing the strong peso. The US dollar has tanked too. Tell us why that is-eh!

  28. In my opinion, the funds could have been put to much better use. Have you noticed your water smells swampy??? Have you walked by the local pumping station and noticed the foul smell??? Have you noticed dirt and sediment in your taps??? Improving the water for all residents and visitors at Lakeside should be a priority over a bike lane, IMHO. I hope they get around to working on the water situation one day.

It is needed to protect the kids, teachers and volunteers health. We need solar panels. I need to raise $2500 US dollars to help toward the cost of the solar panels by doing 17 USA 1040 tax returns.

  30. If you tether, remember that you are not sending the Internet through your phone to your computer. You are actually using the phone to get your Internet, which means you are using the data plan (and "sending" it to your PC). If you use a lot of Internet like I do, you can burn through $300 pesos worth of data in a day. So, as you said, it's not a good package if you do a lot online.

  31. Lakeside7, Thanks for your help! I am a fan of Dr. John Lee's work (several books out about bio-identicals) and the differences between different treatment for HRT. I do appreciate your side note though, so thank you. Physicians typically reach for RX/Pharm, and indeed they attempted that with me prior to any symptoms. If I had not questioned and researched, then I would have placed myself in a situation of being on unopposed estrogen, which Dr Lee believed created a strong risk for breast cancer and reproductive cancers. So, if viewing it that way, indeed there is a greater risk if one we

  32. According to the entry in Wikipedia, under 'Controversy': "Animal welfare groups claim that animal husbandry and urine collection methods used in Premarin's production cause undue stress and suffering to the mares involved. Allegations of abuse range from concern over stall size, access to water, exercise, cruel treatment, collection system, continuous breeding cycles, and premature death." They failed to mention the 'byproduct' of the Premarin industry: the untold thousands of foals born to the mares which had to be kept in a constant state of pregnancy to produce the hormones in their urine.

  34. Which pharmacy is your source for bio-identical estrogen(and progesterone)? Which brand / do you ask that source for? (I would like exact information, and what it says on package (eg mg, manufacturer etc) Which physicians are fully informed of their use? Did you take the bio-identical progesterone and estrogen together? Thank you! ( Information from all welcome. )

  35. You can get bio-identical progesterone and estrogen topical gels here, imported from France. I found them to be quite effective and it's easier to tweak the dose with a gel than a pill. I did a lot of research on hormone replacement about 20 years ago. Premarin is one of the cancer causing hormone drugs. It's name comes from PREgnant MARe's urIN. That's right - pregnant mare's urine. The mares are bred in horrible conditions, and kept nearly constantly pregnant so they will excrete certain hormones in their urine. 17 horse hormones are used in this drug, along with an artificial molecul

  36. I read an interesting book many year ago, that McDonald's, the corporation, was never about the food. They consider themselves, and their mission statement, as a property development company. They were able to influence and forecast changes in entire neighborhoods. They build and invest, then let franchisees to do the food stuff. McDonalds in urban cities in Canada are sad affairs these days. During the day and early evening, screaming packs of kids wanting their " donalds". In the evening shifty looking homeless people nursing their free coffees for hours. That is why their drive throughs a

  38. Catholic Church national wealth estimated to be $30 billion, investigation finds The World Today By Emily Bourke Posted 11 Feb 2018, 9:22pm There are calls for the Catholic Church's tax-free status to be reviewed after a Fairfax investigation revealing the extent of property, assets and investments owned by the church in Australia to be about 30 billion dollars. According to a Time Magazine report from February, 1965, Bankers' best guesses about the Vatican's wealth put it at $10 billion to $15 billion. Of this wealth, Italian stockholdings alone run to $1.6 bill

  39. For a guy who is frequently ballyooing "fake news", and yet who doesn't understand it's meaning, let me be clear. What you posted is amazingly "fake news". As to my large number of posts: Y'all may have noticed a lot fewer from me in the last year. That's because I now only respond to technical and food topics. The first to offer advice; the other as a hobby. Because as kam noted, and Pedro so gleefully attacked her for, I do get irritated by morons who choose to use this board to blast out their own buried self-hate by constantly trolling. It wouldn't be so bad if they were simply angry,
