  1. I was on the Chapala Plus bus to GDL on Saturday. They leave from the Chapala station every 30 minutes. That is the directo, premium class bus. Same on the return from GDL. I live east of Walmart, so I go to Chapala.
  2. We have an outstanding pet boarding facility, just relocating to a new location near the Pantheon this week. Orson Perez and his Dog Workers. Plenty of dogs to go around, though. Reliable, honest dog walkers would be a bonus.
  3. Traveling from the Chapala bus terminal to GDL old terminal, you will receive a ticket with an assigned seat. Not everyone follows the seat assignments. I find them to be more of a "suggestion." I think it is easier and more pleasant to go to Chapala rather than waiting on the sidewalk in Ajijic. For 8-10 pesos you can ride to Chapala and go from there.
  4. Again, more assumptions about the people that will be using the facilities. Not everyone has USA Insurance or Medicare. I am happy that there is a great facility way over there in Jocotopec. That is great for the folks that live out west. However, being one of "those people" that have no car and absolutely no reason to go to Jocotopec, it seems like a long way to go for care. I could probably crawl my way to the hospital in San Antonio. If I had to go all the way to Joco for care, I'd be dead by the time I got there. Cruz Roja does the best they can in a difficult situation, but having to rely on them is NOT something I feel good about. Are you not happy for those people in and around the new hospital ? Everything eventually goes down that deep dark road for everybody. We ALL should be prepared to meet our Maker at any moment. Life is inherently dangerous. Everybody always ends up dead in the end.
  5. MSAlex, I am sorry for the situation of your friend. However, I must note that it is putting someone in a precarious position to ask them to bring in meds from/to the USA/MEX without a Rx in their name. FedEx, however $$$, is a much safer and legal option. Aduana and US Customs and Border Personnel are very vigilant these days, and should the person be randomly chosen for a bag check, then be found with meds and no Rx, it can be VERY serious. One should always have the Rx in their name when traveling with meds, unless they are OTC in both countries.
  6. Please do not assume that all people without cars cannot afford to buy them, or that they cannot afford to pay for a ride to Guadalajara or they cannot afford to pay for hospital services in a private hospital. Why would someone not want a quality facility nearby ? This new hospital is within spitting distance of me, and I am thrilled not to have to rely on the Cruz Roja for emergency care. I hope the new hospital is a success and, I , too, am thrilled with the option of immediate care/stabilization prior to a transfer to GDL if needed. If not, then decent care close by is just plain wonderful.
  7. There is a Home Decor/Fan Store in Riberas just before the 7-11. Decent selection.
  8. We had the same issue at several banks. HSBC has changed the amount of $$ it will dispense. At least that's what we figured out. Went to CIBanco and withdrew the cash.
  9. Admin ..... help him out and remove those phone numbers and addresses !
  10. Yes, Tiny, I did look at those. My ceiling expanse is pretty big and those tiles are quite fancy. I agree with Ferret about the "tin" and copper colored ones. So pretty. Way too upscale, though. I prefer the planks as it doesn't chop up the space above, and I need to drop these ceilings at least an inch or two. I cant glue them down. Thank you for the suggestion.
  11. I love those pictures , too !! Soooooo far away from my lifestyle it's not even possible to consider. I have never even seen anything like that. Way above my pay grade. I am not interested in resale value. It is my home. I have investments and this isn't it. This is just where I live, along with a hubby and 3 dogs. No way is it fancy. If covering those ugly ceilings with a removeable "fix" lowers my resale value, so be it. By the time this house is ready for resale, I won't give a flying flip. I do love that giant medallion, though. Houzz and Pinterest are my favorites browsing locations. I have a friend in the states who will check out the "feel" of some of the possible choices and he will give me an idea of what to continue to consider and what says to him, "walk away." People can feel free to click on the Aemstrong link. I think Aquaponicsman is referring to the Thai/Hindi post from Miki, as I am definitely not a newbie.
  12. I second Dr. Briseno and his lab in GDL.
  13. Those are really cool ideas, and, if the space was smaller, would definitely be contenders. However, husband doesn't want that artsy of a ceiling. I think I will stick to the panel or beadboard look. I will definitely post before and after picks, but it will probably be after the rainy season. I have one or two trips planned to the US and then I will get a hands-on look at the panels so I can decide. Thanks so much for understanding my position and for the suggestions.
