  1. Contact Sacredheart Nursing Home. 331 027 1501 They are trying to provide a lot for not much money - about your price range. Not sure if they will be able to do this as he is just starting out but give them a call.
  2. First, neither are mRna's. Only Pfizer and Moderna. No vaccine is yet available for sale. That is regulated by the World Health Organization, and with millions of people waiting to receive any vaccine, it may be awhile. Vaccine supply in Mexico is limited so if your CRUP card shows you've been vaxxed, I expect you will get some push back when they so open vaccinations for your age group again. What are other Canadians doing?

    Coffee pods

    Only one cup? My French Press makes 2 12 oz cups and I usually drink them both. I think it depends on your coffee drinking habit.

    Coffee pods

    I use a French press - makes 1 cup or 3, no filters, no pods. Just boil the water, pour over the coarse ground coffee in the beaker and wait a few minutes for it to steep. It makes wonderful coffee IMHO.
  5. For those of you who use these and those who don't, they are great for cutting in little slices and hiding all around the house for puppy dog hide and seek. Very popular game at our house.
  6. When I asked awhile back about a tailor, I received this link. Husband has used her and she has done several repair jobs. From her sign I believe she speaks English but husband speaks passable Spanish so he isn't sure. No stairs Posted December 5, 2020 I have had some minor work done at Costura Expres at 123 Colon in SAT. Below is a link to a map of their location. If you click on the street view, you can get a closeup of their sign that includes a phone number. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Colón+123,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+45900+Ajijic,+Jal./@20.2959485,-103.2430284,17z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x842f413589f9ea9f:0xa885df6c6235010b!2sColón+123,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+45900+Ajijic,+Jal.!3b1!8m2!3d20.2959209!4d-103.2431505!3m4!1s0x842f413589f9ea9f:0xa885df6c6235010b!8m2!3d20.2959209!4d-103.2431505
  7. I think it was Flo Kennedy who said, "If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."
  8. I will admit I have never understood why anyone would think they have the right to force a woman to endure pregnancy against her will. Or why a clump of fetal cells is more important than a woman. There can be a million reasons for having an abortion - one out of four women in the US has had one - and most all I would agree with. But it is not my decision to make. Yes it would be preferable if birth control were safer, cheaper, more easily available and always worked. In a perfect world there would be no rape or incest. There would be no pregnancies gone terribly wrong where the life or health of the mother is at risk. No one would ever be diagnosed with cancer and told that without chemo they would almost certainly die but the fetus would not survive either way. These are very personal decisions to be made by the woman and those she chooses to include, not Brother Billy Bob or Senator only-my mistress-can-have-an-abortion. And yes I have been active in Planned Parenthood since the 70s.
  9. Slight change of topic - any idea where to get a watchband repaired? It is a plastic band and needs one of those little metal pin thingys replaced.
  10. Please consider giving one or both of these senior citizens a forever home.
  11. As a side note, living in Roca Azul, if you do Facebook, I suggest you consider joining the WestEnders Facebook group. They are a great source for information on most anything going on in Jocotopec.
  12. Ranch Dog of the Month by Syd Sullins August marked the third year that Snow has been in our shelter. We hate to see lovable dogs spend so much of their life with us, but Snow’s story is complicated. When she and her five litter mates were very young, they were found near death in a culvert by a local rescuer. The rescuer has a huge heart and is usually able to help all her dogs learn to trust again, but she didn’t have any luck with this group. Their trauma was severe. They basically acted feral. When they were about six months old, the rescuer asked us to take them as they were just too much for her. We did accept them and it took a while to start to get through to them. But our Ranch hands as usual worked their magic, and one by one they became more socialized and we were able to find adopters for some….but Snow and two of her brothers remain at The Ranch. They are all now wonderful dogs. They might be a bit hesitant with strangers but can’t resist anyone who comes into their run with a leash - they love their walks. Snow especially is a sweet and loving dog. She’s happy to have visitors, does well with other dogs and has perfect manners on leash. But, as often is the case with white dogs, she’s deaf. Also she has a irritable digestive system and does best with grain free food. And for some reason she’s lost many of her teeth. I was fortunate enough to foster her for several weeks to evaluate how she behaved in a home. I loved having her! She did often seek out a room to be by herself to nap. The bathroom was a favorite spot but she also was often very sociable and loved to be near me. She did really well with my other dogs. She immediately figured out house training, although she did best if she was kenneled at night. So Snow comes with a little baggage, but most of us carry some as well. I do know that she’s a wonderful dog that is so deserving a warm, loving forever home. She has more than done her time at The Ranch. Could you be the special person she’s been looking for? CONTACT US
  13. That is Computer Land, owner Ruben, excellent source for all things computer IMHO
  14. I am going to ask again. Is there anybody else that anyone can recommend? I have called these folks 3 times for fairly minor appliance repairs and they've never once shown up. I need someone wiling to do minor repairs - walking on water not a requirement.
  15. Your pup has Separation Anxiety. I suggest getting a copy of "I'll Be Home Soon" by Patricia McConnell. Great little booklet. https://www.amazon.com/Ill-Home-Soon-Separation-Anxiety/dp/1891767054
  16. I have used fenugreek, along with comfrey root, in a tea for coughs for many years. I'll admit I'm not enuf of a foodie to bother to use it as a seasoning but it sure works well for coughs.
  17. Howard was a special person and a real gift to the Lakeside Community. I first met him in Colorado in the 90's when we both worked on Ken Gorden's campaign before we both moved here. Howard you will be greatly missed. Heartfelt sympathy to his family.
  18. We all have our preferred sources for information. I prefer to listen to local internationally recognized alternative energy and climate expert, Dr Don Aiken, rather than someone babbling on a local Web Board. You can watch several of his recent presentations on the Open Circle videos.
  19. I have also had good luck with diatomaceous earth sprinkled around the electric outlet and whooshed along the wall where they are walking.
  20. If you have some high-end items you might also want to talk to Tommy Thompson at Barbra's Bazaar. He has contacts and sources for sale of specialty items.
  21. I too have heard that TP's VOIP drops off after about 10 minutes. Unacceptable for me
