  1. I can only tell you what I have been told from a friend that is taking someone to dialysis twice a week. There are 2 clinics in/near Ajijic that do dialysis. They are both full at all times and they are not taking on new patients. My friend has to take her patient to Guadalajara. Hope this helps.
  2. You have the right to eat or not eat at any establishment you want. If they don't allow dogs then don't bring yours. The owners have the right to decide if they want to allow pets or not. Mexican law seems to be interpreted by each establishment as they see fit. The dogs are innocent in this conversation. My question would be are you really that dependent on your dog that you have to drag it everywhere you go? If it is a service dog that is another matter, but most of these dogs are just pampered pouches. Some bark at the other dogs and some bark at customers and staff. That dog should be left at home. Other people do not necessarily think that your pup is the cutest thing they have ever seen. They don't want your pup under their chair while they eat and they don't want to have to be careful not to trip over your leash when coming or going. If your dog can sit quietly and is well behaved, has been in the house all day by itself, and is allowed to go where you are eating, then take it. If you have been dragging it around town all day, take it home and let it rest. I choose to eat anywhere I want even if there are dogs there. I don't care for it if a pet is misbehaving, as it makes dining a less enjoyable experience, but I will not boycott the restaurant just because the owner made a choice I did not agree with. If you don't want to eat there then don't, but don't go on the web board and bash a poor little mom and pop restaurant that could easily lose business because you disagree with or maybe misunderstood their policy. These people work hard for us, their customers, and bashing them here is not something we should do over a dog policy. And yes I have 2 dogs and no I do not take them with me. Ever. My choice.
  3. I live on a property with a very large tree that is over 100 years old. I am told that we had that same problem years ago, not sure if it was Egrets, but pieces of shiny aluminum were attached to a long pole and when the birds came someone would shake the pole. It didn't take long and the birds no longer came to the tree. Hope this helps
  4. Thank you so much rckrckr!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Help. I need to call about my pension and apparently there is a new toll free prefix in the US and it is 844. Has anyone ever had to dial this number? I have looked at all the sites for dialing toll free to the States from Mexico, but I can not find how to change from the 844 to a number that will go through. All the info says... Dial 001, which is the international dial code to call the United States, when you have a dial tone. Dial 880 if your toll-free number begins with 800. Dial 881 for an 888 number. Dial 882 for an 877 number and dial 883 for all 866numbers. Thank you!!
  6. My Daughter-in-law makes clothespin wreaths like in the picture below. She would like to send me one via UPS from the States, but I am not sure if there would be a problem. It is approx 12" in diameter so shouldn't be too heavy. I have been told that there will be a tax charged that could amount to more than the price of the item, but don't know if that means being shipped by US mail or if it also includes UPS, DHL etc. I have seen where people have ordered things from a company and had them shipped UPS, but has anyone had a package sent from a friend or family member? Thank you in advance for your help/suggestions.
  7. Would anyone happen to have a phone number for Cocinart Restaurant? Thanks!
  8. I believe this is the place I was thinking of. Thank you Computer Guy!!
  9. I need to change pesos into US dollars. Does anyone know where I can do this? I was thinking that there is a place on the carraterra here in Ajijic, but not sure if I remember that correctly. Thank you.
  10. I have an elderly neighbor with 2 dogs who needs a trainer willing to come to her house in Ajijic. Any names and phone numbers would be appreciated. Thank you
  11. My friend is looking for a cleaning lady once or twice a week for a few (2-3) hours at a time. She called Spring Clean but all of their ladies are busy with other homes. Is there another service Lakeside besides Spring Clean? Thank you
  12. That was the first place they went but they only have leather purses and this lady is looking for tooled leather.
  13. My friend has company from the States and they are looking to buy a purse that had been hand tooled. Any suggestions? Thank you
