  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 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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!

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

  13. Ellie, do you mean I can take my dogs to Early Bird Cafe? If so, I do know that! I'll have to try taking the only little fid I own, a doxie whom I adopted about four months ago. The rest of my fids either don't like to leave their yard or are on guard duty. We have two dobes, one boxer, one street dog lab and the doxie. If I add another one my husband will be beyond exasperated. heehee

  14. I saw the lady with the big lips when I was having something else (thank goodness) done at Dermika. I think those lips are the equivalent of FFFF boobs. I tried not to stare but I also tried to sneak peeks.
  15. I will contact a friend who can help me contact the person in charge. Stay tuned...



  16. I don't remember and what we were charged a few years ago probably isn't the same today.
  17. We used him for acupuncture and some meds to see if it would help the neuropathy that my husband has as a result of chemo. Unfortunately neither helped but we like Dr. Gabriel and many people swear by him. In general we like non traditional medicine as an adjunct to traditional treatments but I'd sure give him a try too.
