  1. "Pompous person know far less than he thinks, lives here!" Pedro should put that sign on his rental.
  2. Yes, I have tried the Farmacia. Thanks for the Mercadolobre suggestion, I will try them.
  3. I have been looking for the clear anti-residue formula.....Walmart and Sam's Clubs in Mexico used to carry it and they still carry some products but not the clear shampoo. Thanks
  4. Yesterday a covid testing area was set up in the Jocotepec Plaza.....of 200 tested.....40 were infected.
  5. My wife needed 02 to supplement her concentrator and our only option was to rent refills in Riberas. Each refill doubled in cost until a friend go us a large tank in Quad.
  6. Low or less than optimal O2 causes anger; damage to some bodily organs ; ignorance, anxiety and the feeling that no one respects your opinions...lesser conduct usually shows a desire to post pictures and push recommendations that are wrong or will harm you.
  7. You must get your 02 up over 90 as there will be damage to you if you remain in the 80's or lower for long periods
  8. You might also try Oxy Reyes in Riberas. I saw several units in his warehouse. He also rents Oxygen tanks in many sizes. Buying one now costs about 10000 mxp for a serviceable one.
  9. Pancho says he can get it....you might drop off this picture and mention that it is also called HALVAH.
  10. The Smoke House Onion rings taste factory made and the fact that a portion contains rings in the same size....is suspect
  11. I read it as well. The few men that got away said that they were beaten and their vehicles taken. They also noted that there was no police presence on that whole stretch.
  12. Yes! Jocotepec still has one. It is greatly reduced from years past. Most tables are bazaars and cheap shoe outlets; further in are fruits and green veggy's The market has been moved towards the edge of town and is more difficult for the foot traffic to reach. There is also a Sunday market which is more new items....shirts, shoes; hats and some cheap food stalls.
  13. Dennis: I DO NOT suggest anyone use MET-Life, who we are stuck with. They have tried to avoid any payments they can get away with and if it weren't for my current agent....I'd be screwed. If you are over 70 yrs old....they won't take you and if you have anything in your past that was a major health problem....then it is a no as well! We had a very "personable" agent who was very unsatisfactory in the beginning and getting rid of his group was helpful and financially a huge savings on claims as well as aggravation ....so choose wisely and it won't be cheap but it sure beats having to go into your own pocket.
  14. UPDATE: I know people are curious about these situations....so as of this moment, my final bill will exceed 700,000 mx pesos and that includes the surgeon and all participants; the private room; meds; rehab services; ambulances etc.....but, I am told that my total will be....less than 5700 usd after my insurance and co-pay. Am I happy? No... as I wish the incident never happened but the price is acceptable for the quality of the facility and the doctors and my credit cards will be accepted without any hassle and the remaining balance will be by direct pay from the insurer. Without insurance coverage I would be reduced to eating rainbirds for a while. I am not happy with my insurance company as I believe they all suck, but my agent has been a great, great asset.
  15. This hospital is virtually brand new and very impressive. It was included on the list of hospitals by my insurance co and had the surgeon and doctors that we needed as well as a large blood bank.. The rooms are like a fine hotel including toiletries and a broad and full menu with a restaurant that offers fair prices and very attentive service. At this time, parking is free and very plentiful . There is a large english speaking medical staff but very little english in the insurance offices or billing offices. This is a very large facility and seems to be very modern and attractive in all ways. The hospital is located on Avenida Central 911 in Zapopan. It takes about an hour to reach it from Jocotepec. Negatives: I wish it were easier to get to; need more english speaking office staff; signage does not offer english but help is always nearby. It is very expensive.
  16. Good thing that most future residents seldom read this site anymore or more of them would consider retiring somewhere else.
  17. I have a space to share in an IShop PO box ......14 months for $80.00 usd. You must get very little mail and no magazines. This box is mostly to give you Texas address for credit cards, etc.
  18. She has seen me on a Saturday but I can't find her emergency number.....maybe someone else has it.
  19. Every letter of the alphabet was allowed each day that the vacunas were given...you merely stood on the lines that listed your first initial of your last name...ie ABC or HIJ etc. I was with numerous senior USA and Canadian people and NONE were turned away if you had the paperwork that been requested...you did have to show the receipt for your first shot to be able to be given the second shot. We had an appointment for both shots and were in and out in two hours for each event.
  20. We were told, in Jocotepec, that we would be given the ability to download an "official" certificate within the next few weeks. Our current form shows that we received two vacunas....unfortunately very few countries accent the Sinovax at this time.
  21. We received our 2nd shot today at the Jocotepec Hospital. Things didn't go as smoothly as with the first one but everyone was friendly and very helpful...right on to lending my wife a wheelchair and letting her wait under a tent top until it was her turn. The lines were very long and it was very hot.
