  1. Daisy 2013 "Since thing are so iffy with the virus, not the time to hire a new person Everyone now has so much time on their hands, try cleaning yourselves." Wow, more unasked for life advice. Not everyone has (1) time on their hands (2) the physical ability to clean house (for any number of reasons, which are personal.) How about you use some of the time on your hands to do a little introspection?

  2. Nice to say make it the owners choice but what about the employees?? Choice for them could be cancer or money.

  3. Personally, I think thinking in hourly rates is not all that applicable here. In the maid search I would have the applicant come in and either give you a price for the job you expect to be done; or, let her do the job one day for a stipulated price and then give you a price.

  5. To marry in Mexico, you need a valid FMM. I can get you one in 2 hours in San Miguel. The easiest place to marry is Mexico City as a gay couple. And to be sponsored by your husband again you need a current FMM. As to the process please read my web site under visas / family and marriage to a Mexican national. Your names must match 100000% on passports and marriage license. You obtain an apostle of your California marriage license. Then it is translated in Mexico by a certified translator. Next, register your marriage with Registro Civil. Finally, you apply at Inmigracion. It is easier tha

  8. I posted the post below here first yesterday [my 15 years of experience of recieving yearly flu vaccinations in Mexico from their socialized medicine system] but was incorrect about when the seasonal flu vaccines might be available this year, so I posted the second one correcting [adding new info.] my first post with this year's experience of recieving my free seasonal flu vaccination at an INSABI clinic today - the post you are complaining about.

  9. Most of us in Chapala Haciendas have been struggling with this for the last 6 months. After much reading, I have disconnected the splitter, scrapped having a landline, and connected the modem directly to the phone jack. It's much better, and isn't constantly dropping. It's still not the 12 mbps we had for 3.5 years, but the 4-5 & my fix let's us watch TV and use our tablets. My opinion? TELMEX closed the Ajijic office in anticipation of this. The two things- horrible service and closure- happened simultaneously. Clearly they know how widespread the problem is because we

  12. So what your saying is many of the foreigners and Expats here are struggling.. Are they here illegally then. ? Because if they are here legally they must have produced financial statements to immigration showIng their monthly income or a substantial amount of money in their bank account over a period of time. They may not be living High off the hog but they are certainly not struggling like many of the locals here who don’t have a nice pension coming in to their bank account every month...

  14. Of course not. Spanking is what parents who have no parenting skills do. Same goes for empty threats. Children learn how to be civilized from positive reinforcement of good behavior and natural consequences. A spanking isn't a natural consequence. If your child doesn't do his chores and goes off to play with his friends instead, a natural consequence would be the parent saying, next time the child wants the parent to drive them somewhere "Remember the other day went you went off without washing the dishes and I had to do the dishes so I'd have a clean kitchen to make dinner in? Well, I was pla

  15. WE know several foreigners have WELL over 6 dogs...... so don't think this is a "Mexican" issue. (No we are not included) Some are more mindful than others about the noise etc. their dogs cause. In past years, at least two were "invited" to leave La Floresta when their dog counts got to 14 or 15......... So don't be so quick to condemn the Mexican population at large. The fault lies with the individual in each situation.

  20. You are not a doctor so I suggest that you aren't qualified to describe my stroke. There is no such thing as a mild stroke. Since I have had 3 others I know the symptoms on immediate onset and act quickly. Our nest egg is just fine but feel free to throw your cash away. We humans have choices don't we--eh!
