  1. For anybody interested in medium to large parrots, there is a breeder right off the highway between Chapala and Guad. PM me is you want more info. I have already given the info to Bigrig. I got my grey from him.
  2. We live in lower Riberas and consider our area to be the stepchild of Chapala. Keep expectations low and you won't fret. Our street is so bad only people with SUVs or Jeeps can visit us during the rainy season. CFE did come by and repair some street lights several months ago but we had to pay extra to have it done. Water? We have a bizillion filters between the street water and our indoor plumbing. We wash the filters no less than once a month to keep the water flowing. We built a three chambered septic system and it works quite well. So, as you can see, don't count on the government to do anything for you, have the ability to do it yourself or have enough money to hire competent "experts" to help you.
  3. Here is Dane's email dane@danestrom.com . He has done several website in our area. However, I know he is busy and is also heading to the US for a few weeks in the near future. Eventually he gets back to you.
  4. One of the doctors at Dermika may be on maternity leave so I am not sure what that does to waiting times for appointments. We have paid as much as $500 pesos when we had a lot of work done. On the other hand we have had follow up visit where not one peso was charged. Dra. Monika Ramos diagnosed and treated my husband for shingles on three occasions. She has also burned off actinic kerotoses, taken biopsies and removed cysts for us. We love that clinic.
  5. It's on the highway in Ajijic just west and across the street from the shopping center that has El Torito and Salvador's Restaurant in it. There is the casino, Marisa's Bakery, Isilab and a Telcel in the same shopping center.
  6. Dermika Clinic, Dra. Monica Ramos, or if she is on maternity leave, Dra. Tanya Sanchez. Both speak English and are excellent. 766 2500
  7. We always go through Aguascalientes, Zacatecas, Chihuahua and out through the Santa Teresa crossing. Then we catch I 25 and go straight north. All of the Mexican cities have bypasses around them so you don't have to go through the cities themselves. I don't have great recommendations on where to stay because we always travel with our truck and camper so stay at Pemexes or toll booths. A...

  8. We are planning to go to Pueblo near the end of the month.Any recommendations on routes to take or places to stay? Thanks, Maryanne

  9. We aren't planning to go to Denver anytime soon. Not sure if we will drive this year because of Bill's health. When are you planning to go?

  10. Please write me at lindaherrin@gmail.com or do you have instant messenger? I don't have a landline phone where I live so it's easier to communicate by computer. I have both google talk and skype. My husband has had two bouts of shingles in the past four months.

  11. Ain't that the truth! Insanity reigns.

      Lake heron. I has tried 1000 avenues looking for African Grey and even got scammed by an adoption add Could you please please give me the breeder in your areas contact info. Thank you

  12. Thank You, it is sometmes difficult to be reasonable when responsing to some of the posters.

  13. I have never used them. Thanks for the warning. I am really knowledgeable about local docs and a lot of A list docs in Guad since my husband has been ill for so long!

  14. Linda:

    Please talk to me before you use Surgery Host. I have a friend who is suing them and in all likelihood she will win. We are hoping Lyn and Varn will be back Wednesday.


  15. Would love the papers, yes. And love to see you too.
