  1. It is a good idea to keep your Medicare with A & B, as you may need it on visits to the USA, or when you move back; willingly or not. We moved to Mexico in 2001 and bought a home in Ajijic. We sold that one in 2004 and bought a larger place, in Chapala centro, in 2004. Then, medical issues caught up with us. Care was excellent in Guadalajara hospitals, and with our various doctors, but the frequency began to add up. My wife reached medicare age, I developed more problems, including COPD. That was the straw that broke the camel's back, as I needed a lower elevation to reduce my depen

  2. Just felt like rebutting a Post made here recently about South Dakota plates and their history at Lakeside. For some reason, back when, a few folks wanted to make out the whole 'using South Dakota plates in Mexico' as a sham if not a scam. There was much mis-information then and the recent Post just brings those mis-representations back for some reason. Jubilacion is actually spot on with his/her comments. It was NEVER a scam or sham nor a ploy, Clay County was NOT the only county in SD offering the state-wide program to out-of-staters etc etc. Why this.... using SD as a viable option fo

  3. Hog droppings! You can get virtually any BP drug over the counter. The US prescription would just serve as written name. Any shop will do but there are places that sell generics and one in particular is 25% off on Mondays. You should have a doctor become your primary care provider for many reasons.

  4. A few weeks ago I asked recommendations for a driver to Guadalajara for 4 to 5 weeks. I had several names given and I talked with all of them, but they could not assure me I would have the same driver every day. One person answered me on the web board, Noel Rivera and he also sent me a p.m.indicating to me he would drive me every day for as many weeks as I needed. I called Noel and I decided on him as my driver. The appointments were every week day M-F at 11:20 for 15 day. He uses disinfectant spray in the car, hand gel and also wore a mask at all times covering nose and mouth. Noel a

  5. That story says, " Vita Deyun is the first Mexican treatment that has undergone rigorous laboratory tests, but has also proven its effectiveness in more than 7,500 people. Mexican doctors performed numerous in-vitro tests on patients and health personnel to verify the effectiveness of the supplement..." In-vitro test are only test tube tests, so how could it be effective on people when they are not tested in-vivo?

  7. Heidi and I both had REAL cuban sandwiches at Sabor del Caribe in Riberas today and they were fantastic. Best I've had since leaving Florida! The sandwich is ham, pork (cooked the Cuban way!), swiss cheese, pickles and mustard...served with fries for $85 pesos. I would have gladly paid much more! All kinds of goodies on the menu at excellent prices. They bake their own bread and pastries. Took a loaf home and Heidi at about 1/3 befoer we arrived! Damn, it was good!

  9. I have NO idea why you went off on me? I was just there, you have not been, what's your issue? I was 100% AGREEING WITH YOU in my post that COVID must have changed the vendor dynamics because right now, not 8 months ago and not 12 months from now, but last Monday, the length of the two Tiangius are about the same. That's it. Nothing else. I only know what I have seen, I have no history pre-COVID. I apologize if you took offense and misinterpreted my comment, I am not correcting you or anyone else just reporting what I saw firsthand. Excellent pictures by the way.

  16. That would seem to me to be the first step.. But so many of the expats here won’t do that, they want someone else to do it for them...they like to complain. They buy a property that’s cheap because it’s very close to a commercial area which has had bars and restaurants with music long before they purchased their property and then they want other people to solve their problems for them. A little due diligence would have solved their problem before it even started..

  18. By this statement are you advocating euthanasia? So if all the 'spay and nutter is not working' then why are so many animals sterilized daily. A 3 day clinic can sterilize 170 to over 200 animals (cats & dogs). One of the groups goes to the small communities and gathers up animals to be sterilized. Other groups hold weekend clinics in the surrounding communities. I believe, all the local shelters, sterilize the animals that pass thru their hands. Think of how bad it would be if there weren't active spay and neuter programs going on.

  22. This attitude is why so many of us who cannot afford it end up paying for bad meals, overpriced service providers, poor repairs to our vehicles and homes, and yes, substandard medical care. The idea that we should just be silent when any of the above has occurred is ludacris. We owe it to our community to warn them off and we most certainly do NOT owe it to business owners who aren't providing quality to pay and hope they do better next time. Had I read Carnivore's review before going it would have saved me time and money. Their description mirrored our experience to a tee.

  24. Yep Cedros, like almost everyone else on this Board. But if you read again, it was not ME who brought up the subject with ERRONEOUS information in another thread.... that was subsequently locked. And the good news is that you did not have to read the Post seeing that you were thoroughly informed years ago and have good retention of the subject matter.

  27. In your "home country" as a citizen no but as a "Residente Permanente" yes you need to carry your immigration card at all times to prove your immigration status when asked by officials exactly the same as in Mexico according to the SEGOB INM rules. Not a copy or a notarized copy but the official INM card/document. Break the rules if you want to. Federal Police and INM officials can ask. So can INSABI [using their emergency room etc], state and federal agencies when doing business with them. Probably the National Guard since they are replacing the Federal Police can ask also.

  30. Request your ballot NOW Cutoff dates for requesting your ballot vary by state, but are as early as Oct. 3, so don’t put this off. Request your ballot from the last place you were registered to vote, not necessarily the last place you lived. You must submit a completed Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to your local election officials. The FPCA. serves as both your ballot request and voter registration, and must be received at least 45 days before an election, to allow ample time to process your request and resolve any problems. Once approved, your name will be put on a list of voters t

And If I believe their reports filed with the CDC, among others I am listening to the wrong people? That's some conspiracy theory.....

  35. I have a suggestion. If you are posting information about a small business, and are trying to help the business or restaurant or... get more business, please include an address and/or location information. Also include a bit about what the business sells or what services they offer or menu items and maybe relative prices. This type of detail will help people decide if they want to bother to go to the store. Also include enough location information so a person might be able to find the business. An address is helpful, especially in Ajijic. "In Riberas" tells almost nothing. Riberas goes fr

  49. A lot of those dogs have been rescued from abusive situations thru the assistance of the bomberos and Ecologica. You can't/shouldn't expect an instant change in behavior just because they are being cared for. Some dogs will howl/bark just for the sake of hearing themselves. Who knows what situations these animals experienced prior to their removal from their previous owners. It takes a long time to rehabilitate an abused animal but at least it is a start.
