    Adios Pemex....Hola BP

    Well I guess La Canacinta was first. Our BP opened yesterday after about a week closed for the change over. Been watching it all week but had enough gas to ride it out.

    Cold and dark last night

    And so the "Brass monkey calls".
  3. I am not sure Harry but WTH does El Gordo have to do with problems in Nayarit?
  4. Harry. have you posted on TOB
  5. There are 5 Charity bazaars in Riberas Harry. Ask them all! Also ask the LCS bazaar in West Ajijic. I did not say it was easy. I am talking a Tractor Trailer not a 1/2 tonne BTW it is Pancho not Poncho
  6. Anyone with any doubts about the situation in Nayarit should read this. http://www.jornada.com.mx/ultimas/2018/11/07/ascienden-a-10-mil-millones-los-danos-que-causo-2018willa2019-en-nayarit-1536.html Use Google translate to read it in English
  7. There are many Charitable Bazaars on the Carretera throughout Lakeside. Many of those would be willing to set up a box and receive donations. They all have parking and it gets people into their Bazaar and who knows some are going to buy something. We need to get away from the concept that everyone in Ajijic is living in Centro and has easy access to the Delegation. It is called "thinking outside the box". Pass that on to the Municipality and to Hector, Harry. I am sure there are people who are prepared to visit some of those Bazaars and propose such an arrangement. The easier it is for people to make a donation the more donations you will get.All the bazaars have Facebook and can advertise there to their members. It is good for business.

    Social Security issues

    The waiting period for health insurance in Canada varies from 0 to 3 months depending on the Province. Most are 3 months but 1 or 2 are immediate.

    Dr. Advice Please

    Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It's a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions. Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. I guess the same place that the guy who wrote this. What would you call that. I call it exploratory surgery

    Dr. Advice Please

    Laparoscopic Surgery is a term used when the surgeon does not know what is wrong and thinks he can find out by operating. In other words it is exploratory surgery. A must for a second opinion.

    How to call 1-800# with cell phone?

    Check their listing # on Canada 411. That will give you a local Canadian number which is toll free from Mexico. Just dial 001 +10 digits. I use it all the time. Works for both landline and cell. I call Canada on a weekly basis. Works for the US also but not the Canada 411 part.

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    The answer is that you do not go to jail in the first place. What the transitos are doing is against both State and Federal laws. Exercise your rights and leave them standing at the side of the road I hope you read Spenser's document. If you did not you are making very misinformed comments. If you read the document you will understand my comments. After 10 years i have no fear of the transitos. If they stop me for a reason such as speeding I have no problem. If they stop me to check documents I say no and leave. Carry a copy of Spenser's document in the car and show them you know the law

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    Spenser McMullen wrote an excellent guide to the Jalisco traffic laws back in 2014 and they are basically the same today. You can find it at http://chapalalaw.com/Driving.pdf It is quite long but pay special attention to extortion and abuse of power. Reasons for which the transitos may stop you and the reasons they may tow your car. Everything they are doing in La Canacinta is against the law. Don't be afraid to tell them to go to hell, there is nothing they can do . They don't want to go to prison There is also a Federal Law that guarantees the right of passage whether you are walking, riding or driving a car. Can't find it at the moment but will post if I do. Maybe Spenser knows the Federal law Don't be afraid if you are stopped just look the officer in the eye and say "It's a little early for Christmas isn't it Officer?" he will get the message.
