    Mercado Libre Experience

    It's one that is now in the garbage after having it looked at by three iPhone experts. Thanks anyway Albert.

    Mercado Libre Experience

    On the iPhone... is that an additional two years? As in additional to the one year guarantee? And, if so, what was the charge for the additional warranty. I'm asking because I bought a brand new iPhone from an accredited Telcel provider locally and it died (not reparable) in 18 months. I was not a happy camper.

    Tooth implant issues

    Sorry that happened to you klm. I have three implants from Dr. Haro's specialist that were done in 2013. Still solid as a rock. When was your last bone density done? Your problem may be the first indication that you are losing bone density. Please get it checked out. https://www.emedicinehealth.com/bone_mineral_density_tests/article_em.htm#what_is_osteoporosis

    Tooth implant issues

    If the anchors aren't moving, then it's the caps and/or the adhesive that are the problem. Or perhaps not enough post was left out to attach the tooth to. Get another opinion (Dr. Barragan or Dr. Haro) or keep going back until you are satisfied. Dr. Haro's specialist did mine... solid as a rock from the get go.

    Tooth implant issues

    Go to a different Dentist and get their opinion. Your own bone has to grow around them. If that is not happening, then the problem may be you.

    Pancho's Deli/Grocery

    True gringal! But I don't buy either bottled salad dressings or canned soups... msg and a load of other chemicals in both. So, what do I buy in SuperLake? Individually wrapped Kirkland TP and paper towels... mom's entrees, sesame seed oil, cambazola cheese, packaged walnuts and shredded coconut, unsweetened apple sauce and pineapple chunks without sugar, Jacob's Cream Crackers, Shreddies, coffee and brown filters (not Melitta), oatmeal cookies packaged in threes, linguine and brown rice (without bugs).

    Looking for a proctologist lakeside.

    idocdan… that was absolutely hilarious! I'm so sorry that I couldn't give you more than one rating. It deserved at least 5 stars and a laugh, a like and a thanks.

    Everybody has a story. We didn't build here but we did build on the coast in San Pancho. Excellent experience and it was built on time and on budget. We were also on site a minimum of two times a day. YMMV.

    Pancho's Deli/Grocery

    I'm in lower Riberas close to the 711. Pancho's new store will be at the eastern edge of Riberas. I will go via the highway east to his store and the back streets coming home. No traffic, no problem, me happy.

    Lampshade seller?

    I went into Lumina y Decora today. Didn't see any adapters and both clerks were too busy to wait and ask. They DO have both kinds of lampshades in various sizes. You kinda have to stick your hand in the top of each stack to feel whether they are one kind or the other. Mostly beige. Sigh. But, you could have some fun attaching fabric to the outside of the shade with a glue gun. Best of luck.

    Lampshade seller?

    Yeah, but way more convenient. edited to add: I was replying to liquipure. And, yes, Cedros that is the same store that we are all recommending.

    Lampshade seller?

    Awesome! Here's a link to what the adapters look like... https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Hobbies-Adapter-Attaching-Finial/dp/B01AWSO6LI/ref=sr_1_12_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1537026799&sr=8-12-spons&keywords=lampshade+adapter&psc=1

    Lampshade seller?

    That used to be the only kind of lampshade available here and they were all beige. Things change. I bought adapters from Bed, Bath and Beyond in Canada but I'm sure they may have them in their new store in Guadalajara. It goes over the light bulb but has a small harp that allows you to use the more modern style lampshades. I'll take a look on Amazon to see if I can find them. And, yes, the lighting store to the east of Sunrise Restaurant had the best selection of shades... but even that's not great.

    I agree with both Gringal and rvanparys. One thing I've often wondered when people want to sell and are not happy with their "profit". If you add in all the rent that you DIDN'T pay during your years of owning, does your bottom line look any better?

    LOL. That is not a guarantee for sure. Been there, done that. Best to check with a professional in the area that you are selling. And that could/should be a Notario as Hal said. But, like all important decisions in your life, a second or third opinion doesn't hurt either.
  17. That is HILARIOUS! Thanks!

    I would check with a professional like Spencer on this.

    "What goes up, must come down". Real Estate is a wave but the end result is that it always goes up. My parent's bought their first house for 14,000 Canadian dollars in 1959. That same house now is worth over 500,000 dollars. But, trust me, when I want/need to sell, the market will be in a trough. Guaranteed.
  20. Lab results vary. Who's doing the testing here? Even in the U.S. and Canada, lab results vary because it depends on the way in which it is cultivated.https://www.leafly.com/news/strains-products/high-cbd-marijuana-strains-according-to-lab-data Here are two links detailing strains with high CBD... https://greencamp.com/high-cbd-strains/ https://www.allbud.com/learn/story/top-10-cbd-strains-look-out-2018 IF someone ONLY wants CBD and to not take a chance on any THC being present, then CBD from HEMP is a no brainer. Everyone is different and some only want one thing because it's their comfort zone. There are thousands of marijuana strains with THC in them. There are very few that have both and even fewer that are mostly CBD with limited amounts of THC.
  21. That was very smart of you Rony. Yes, any THC can damage a dog's kidneys.

    The sale of bare land ALWAYS incurs a "capital gains" cost to the seller and it doesn't matter if you're Mexican or a Foreigner. There is a sweet spot between making a profit and not giving most of your profit to the tax department. Do your math when selling any real estate.
  23. Healthy Hemp Oil is the name of the company. The following is a good starter guide to CBD. https://healthyhempoil.com/buy-cannabidiol-guide/?utm_source=ActiveCampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=💕++FIRSTNAME++This+is+Why+CBD+++Your+Brain+Can+Be+BFFS💕&utm_campaign=VIV-Sep+EDU+1-V1 And, to answer Rony's question... CBD oil is usually made from HEMP and does not contain THC. Many, many people confuse CBD oil with oil made from Marijuana. There are very few strains of Marijuana that contain CBD (which stands for the cannabinoid CANNABIDIOL). Charlotte's Web is one strain of Marijuana which does contain a lot of CBD. Google is your friend.
  24. Did have. We started building the house, the pool and the retaining wall on October 1st of 2004 and moved in at the end of February 2005... all done except for the landscaping. Our contractor was excellent and his guys knew how to work. We sold it in March of 2011.
