  1. As promised here is my review of this service: Location is across from Vinos America and next the new pet shop. They pick up and deliver and speak enough english for most ex-pats. They take cash or credit cards and do not expect payment until you are satisfied. Our two units were rated at 5 liters of 02 but had trouble putting out 3-4 and now they put out the full 5 liters with no trouble. Questions?
  2. They, Meraki co of 11A in Ajijic on the highway Vinos America and the new pet shop...3333743635....arrived a day early and brought a loaner unit and service should take only one day and a factura will be provided when the unit is returned. A Great SOURCE for people like us who need oxygen 24/7 This company used to be across from Quality Care and now has moved further West. Note: our units do not use cannisters they are concentraters with an aqua bottle for moisture.
  3. A poster on the other board did answer and I will put the name and location of that repair shop for anyone interested on there when I verify that they do the service.
  4. I need a shop that services oxygen concentrators. Someone other than Lake Med if you know of anyone. Thanks.
  5. I certainly and delightfully accept your compliment.
  6. Answer to several e-mails: We live in Jocotepec. Our neighbors are ALL Mexicans. We chose to live in "Mexico" and not Gringolandia and we have never regretted that decision.
  7. I have thought frequently thought about leaving Mexico. I am blessed with decent health and good finances....and then I factor in my experiences with the people and I know that this is where I will stay. Last night, we had a power outage, one of many recently....and my oxygen deprived wife needed help as her air supply was failing.....one neighbor went and rented us a 14 hour o2 tank.....not easy on a Saturday night. Another one helped me get my generator up and running to charge our battery operated portable and two local women came and comforted my frightened wife. Offers to shop for us, (not needed but appreciated)....going with us to help get her into the doctor's office.....and much, much more. The Presidente in my village, yes I can call him and he has always been willing to get info as to CFE's progress in restoring power and last night was no different...WOW! When I think of the negative comments about local government, transitos, roads, noisy restaurants, etc.......I see my personal scale always tilts towards more pleasant thoughts. Is it perfect here? Certainly not but, pretty good for me.
  8. My kidney doctor informs me that he sells the pills in whatever quantity I might need and supplies a factura if needed.
  9. I can't honestly say yes or no.....I would probably take a long trip first and see if I miss what is here or what maybe way out there. I do know that the USA is a no, no and no.....but that leaves a lot of "elsewheres."
  10. Well, at least it brought some comments even though an insult to a poster brought it on.
  11. On a score of 1-100% Lakeside has been wrong in his postings 90% of the time and that is probably generous
  12. I want to come back on this topic: melon is okay on one site and is forbidden on another.....a vegetable omelette is okay on one site and on another says...do not eat more than one egg every few days.....so I sure hope I get it right. My wife is no longer able to help in the kitchen so that leaves just me to stumble along....I do appreciate the comments as it makes me believe I am not alone.
  13. I noticed them but over the years I have grown used to their sounds and consider more of the normal here.
  14. I offer it openly, in case anyone else wants to join in about this part of the lake. habachtfred@gmail.com Please note that there is a friendly and open group here called the WestEnders...all messages and info has been in english. They usually share rental information and answer, usually, without delay any questions about the area. I also have a USA telephone number. You won't be alone unless you want to be.
  15. Dante: It is somewhat difficult to share some truths on this venue......I would be willing to answer your questions with more detail via my e-mail. If that offer is acceptable.... ask for my email.
  16. Driscoll Berry co is the largest employer in the area and many of their management people speak english...many of my Mexican neighbors are somewhat able to understand english.....most vendors speak english......I am fully able to exist with my marginal language ability.......Jocotepec, in my opinion, is better and more welcoming because of the lack of ex-pats. Learn the customs, be polite, don't tell people how you would do anything better than them and you are going to have that dream you think is here. There are some very uniformed folks that live here and some real, real negative ones.....they don't and won't have the quality of life that is waiting to be lived. Come visit.....
  17. Dante: In 17 yrs here I have seen many changes....I live in Jocotepec and very few expats have joined us....things are still somewhat uncrowded...but costs have gone up and rentals are few. My cost of living is still very low and my taxes are pocket change. The people are still friendly and very helpful. Good luck
  18. Thank you for the Davita lead. I believe you solved my receipe problem and some money as well.
  19. Thanks....I have developed kidney disease and want to eat as healthy as I can.....I have never shied away from some foods that I know are no longer welcome by my kidney. I have been told that my Met-Life policy will assist me with diet advice but my trust in Met-Life is very low so I was looking for someone that knew what they were doing.
  20. Kind of you to reply. I will be in that area on Saturday and I will try to make contact.
  21. I am having difficulty finding a dietician at lakeside that works with kidney problems.. I would appreciate any recommendations.
  22. I am told that a huge fire in the area of El Molino has damaged some electric transmitter lines.b The road from there to Guadalajara is closed so that fire fighters can fight the blaze.
