  1. From the OP. Yesterday tried to activate Schwab debitcard. Keyed in numbers from SKYPE dialpad were not recognized. I don't care whose problem it was. Maybe Telmex will do better. Never hurts to have a spare. Otherwise SKYPE is OK.
  2. Has anybody figured out how to get US 800 telephone numbers? TELMEX will not do it and I am getting disgusted with SKYPE. Is there a cellular option I can subscribe here?
  3. Spray the area with WD-40. I had that problem, sprayed and they never returned. Don't know why, it just works.
  4. Does anyone have a recommendation for a chiropractor? Contact information please.
  5. What is the best way to get a ride from Ajijic to a Guad hospital? For the return trip next day what is the best way to come back to Ajijic? What is the current cost.
  6. Is there a CT scan facility in Lakeside beside San Antonio Hospital? If not, is there a doctor to interpret the resulting XRays? Perhaps unjustly, I am not entirely comfortable with the analysis I got. In any case a second opinion is always a good idea.
  7. My senior dog is incontinent. Pees on floors of unglazed tile. Internet search recommends special enzyme products to eliminate urine smell. How effective are these? Are they available locally? Where? Does anyone have any other ideas? I think he is too old to be retrained or disciplined.
  8. The question probably refers to some piece of NVIDIA electronics gear.
  9. I and another friend had problems with paying for TELCEL at Oxxo. One payment was not credited to my fone, I suspect it went elsewhere. I did not watch closely as the number was entered, got a receipt etc. My friend updated 2 fones, was not credited. Went to another Oxxo. I watched the terminal as the number was entered. Had to tell the girl a couple of times the entry of my number was not complete. Finalyl she did the right thing. Starting to suspect Oxxo software for a Telcel payment has a flaw that can be exploited. Pay attention.
  10. I have had problems with Los Altos in the past. Phony receipt, partial fill etc. I only use Z-gas.
  11. Does anyone know where I can get some? I want to make some Kim Chee.
  12. My old instructor in using archival materials and methods just turned over in his grave. ****************************************** On the contrary, egg tempera predates oil by several centuries. There are egg tempera paintings in fine shape from the 14th. century. The intricate jewelry on old masters portraits was done in egg tempera on an oil foundation. Egg yolk is an emulsifier that accepts both water and oil. By adding linseed to the yolk/water mixture and adjusting the water/oil ratio one can extend drying time and do some blending. An equilibrium can be reached where
  13. I use Utrecht Art house brand. Good stuff. Liquin and turps will not pass customs. Nothing vaguely flammable. Use the messenger shipment method, the standard method winds up in the Mex Post office to an unknown fate. I get delivery at my door. I have also ordered powdered pigments to use with egg tempera. Anything past 1 lb. triggers Mexican customs since they think you are an importer. Oil whites tend to dry dull but you can safely use egg yolk tempera on top of oil and oil on top of tempera. Tempera dries instantly but needs 2 days for full strength, it will not peel off. I on
  14. I got booted from IMSS because of a late payment. The hell with them. I am told Seguro Popular is another option. I have absolutely no idea about eligibility, requirements, cost or location. Any info much appreciated.
  15. I have had IMSS for the last 17 years. I have never used their services except in 2015 I needed surgery for an intestinal malignancy. I inquired to IMSS, reported my problem and diagnosis, and started the process of having IMSS do the surgery. IMSS gave me lengthy and delayed half assed schedule that made me nervous since I thought I had a serious problem. I decided to use a private surgeon instead since the IMSS wait was so long. The private surgeon did the surgery and I have not made any IMSS claims since. I continued the IMSS coverage as a catastrophic backup. This year, thr
