  1. johanson We went with e-sun too and were told that some people have their credit wiped out at the end of the year if it hasn't been used and others do not. It sounds like there isn't a whole lot of consistency and it depends a lot on your personal luck!
  2. Thanks all. I actually had the x-ray done at the Ajijic clinic yesterday and was given the film. I am hoping that this will be satisfactory for my oncologist next week. I will have an appointment every three months and maybe next time will try Maskaras if they will forward to the radiologist at the COI center where my appointment is.
  3. I have been told that the Hospital below will be able to do an x-ray for me but I have never noticed it when I have been in Ajijic. Can anyone tell me what it is near?
  4. I have to have a thorax x-ray before my oncology appointment in Guadalajara next week. I can drive to Guadalajara or apparently I can have the x-ray Lakeside, to save myself a trip. Can anyone recommend an imaging clinic and if so can you tell me if they are likely able to forward the info by the twenty fifth of May if I have it done tomorrow?
  5. There is a pet store beside Soriano's that seems to be well stocked; I love going there when I can because they have lots of things that I can't find elsewhere. I haven't seen the Thunder Coats there but then I haven't looked either; if they don't carry them I think the owner would order for you as he promised that he would order some obscure thing that I wanted.
  6. We have had solar for a few months and our bills have been 46 pesos but a couple of weeks ago we had four min-splits installed and they have run pretty much all day every day so I am wondering what to expect on our next bill. The units are two one and a half ton and to one ton units. I have to say that even if it costs us more, and I am sure that it will, it has been wonderful being able to cook without suffocating and to sleep comfortably at night; as for the dry air and the decrease in dust due to the closed windows we are feeling pretty spoiled here!
  7. Every now and again I see men on the side of the highway into Ajijic sailing these toy gliders from one side to the other. I saw them a few weeks back and wish that I had stopped to buy some for my young nephews. Now my sister is getting ready to return to Canada for the summer and would like to take something home for the grandsons; she has found some pretty tapestry backpacks for the girls but boys are harder and we are thinking that they would love the gliders. Does anyone know where we might find them? They look to be about twenty inches from nose to tail, so they are a good size and I am guessing that they are made from Styrofoam.
  8. Thank you again everyone; the problem is solved we drove back early this morning and exchanged the defective merchandise.
  9. Thanks Cedros; that is a very nice offer!
  10. Thanks everyone for your efforts; I will try pappysmarket number and add a 0 at the beginning. I have deciphered a telephone number at the bottom of my faded receipt (finally) and when I call there I cannot find an English speaking person to help with my problem. Not speaking Spanish is, of course, my problem not theirs!
  11. I need a telephone number for the Mega Grocery Store located just off Lopez Mateo. The address listed on my receipt is actually listed as Adolfo Lopez Mateo and I have Googled it and can only produce a telephone number for Bank of Nova Scotia and some of the smaller stores in the same building so I believe Mega refers to the whole complex. Is there another name for the grocery store in that building?
  12. Actually I have two questions. First: we are about to start our tax returns and e-file them as usual, however we have been told this afternoon that it is not possible to file this way. We have been doing it for years without any trouble; has something changed that would prevent us from e-filing? Next question: we have a friend who wants to hire someone in the Chapala area to do her's and her husband's Canadian tax returns. I know that there are at least a couple of people offering the service as I have seen it advertised, but of course, now that I need to lookup the information, I cannot find the advertisement. Can anyone recommend someone and provide an address and telephone number?
  13. I think that poor installation is the main problem with our damaged tile. The first floor that we had refinished, replaced tiles that we knew were very old just by the design; there were no cracks in them but they were worn looking and since we had enlarged the space we had to start with new, because we could not match what was there. Within weeks we had cracks; this was nine years ago and still every time we vacuum and wash the floors we displace some of the grout; it is like shale! Other tiles seem not to have a full concrete foundation; if we drop something there is a hollow sound; some of these have not cracked yet but give it time! The bathrooms have all been re-built from the dirt up; we were here to watch the process; none of these tiles have cracked and all of the bathrooms were done between two and nine years ago so, so far, so good. But I do like the look of the stone/flagstone and would be interested in investigating it if I knew where to start in the Chapala, Jocotepec area.
  14. We have been considering replacing our tile floors with stone (flagstone?). We have seen a few houses with stone floors and think that they might be a good alternative to the tiles which seem to crack easily, at least ours do and some of our tiles are not more than five years old. If you have stone floors, do you like them and why, or hate them and why? Can you tell us who we would see about buying and installing same. The other thing we have considered is marble but again, we know nothing about who installs them and what the durability, maintenance and cost compared to floor tile is; any information/observations would be appreciated.
  15. I am looking for plaster of paris to make chalk paint; does anyone know where I can buy this lakeside or what it is called in Mexico?
  16. Rony: Hi Rony where would we find you? If we haven't managed to find some before Wednesday and you are still willing I would like to take advantage of the offer. Would you P.M. me and I will try to remember and look!
  17. Zeb it is for cooking. I will check with the store beside Gossips.
  18. Does anyone know where to buy this either in Ajijic or Jocotepec? We have checked Wal-Mart, Superlake and a store in Joco that carries spices but no luck.
  19. Schnauzer for adoption Lake Chapala Area A young, approximately eight month old, Schnauzer needing a forever home. According to the veterinarian, he is a pure bred Schnauzer about ten kilos. The boy is very beautiful, wonderful, playful disposition, good with other dogs, loves a car ride and sleeps all night in a crate. It would seem that this little guy has been a housedog as he is very clean and has had no accidents in the house. He is also non shedding and non allergenic. I am posting this for a friend who cannot keep the dog but is anxious to find him a loving, forever home. She can be reached for ore information or pictures at 331 352 4573, 766 0112 OR EMAIL. balymena@hotmail
  20. Lobos I feel for you and hope you find someone who can help. I could be wrong but I was sure about five years ago the subject came up and there was someone locally who made animal wheelchairs; I could be way wrong but I think that the man worked in the plaza across from Wal-mart (Interlago?). I will ask around and see if I can turn up any information but is it possible that one of the local vets could lead you to the information that you seek?
