  1. Can i have a colonoscopy here? Or do I have to go to Guadalajara? Any info about where to get this procedure, the cost and other details would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. A few months ago, I was having computer problems, so I called the place where I bought the computer. They "fixed" the problem, but then I started getting a message on my computer saying that my Windows license is going to expire soon. I called the same place, they said they fixed this, but that "Windows license expiring soon" message keeps appearing. I would really appreciate someone telling me the name and phone number of a legit computer expert who can help me with my problem. Thanks in advance...
  3. I need your help. Where can I buy vitamins here in the Lake Chapala area? Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. Do you know a good place to print and fax a document? I need to print (from the internet) and sign the last page of my income tax return and then have it faxed to my accountant in Canada. I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me the name of a business that could do this for me, along with the address and phone number of that business. Thanks in advance for any help you could provide. Sincerely, Mexico Jimbo
  5. Thank you, DesertDave!!! Francine was very helpful and I just talked to Cheryl. The folks on this board are simply amazing when it comes to lending a helping hand!
  6. Yes, I'm sure that's right. Now all is need is her phone number/contact info.
  7. Nope, but thanks anyway. The lady whose contact info I'm looking for has a Chapala phone number and I believe she lives in Chapala Haciendas. I know that she has two sons who have lived here, one of whom is named Blake.
  8. Does anyone have the name and office phone number of the blonde Canadian lady who provides Shaw Direct Satellite TV service in Lake Chapala? I'm a long-time client, dating back to when her late husband ran the business several years ago, but I have lost her contact info. Since I only deal with her once a year to pay my annual subscription fee, darned if I can even remember her name. My renewal date is coming up soon but I will be visiting Canada on that date, so it is important for me to be able to contact that lady in the next week or so. I know this is probably a long-shot, but if anyone has her contact info, I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks in advance, MexicoJimbo
  9. I'm having some software problems with my laptop computer and would like to get the help of a computer expert today or as soon as possible. If you could recommend a computer repair person/company here in Lakeside, I would greatly appreciate it. The phone number/address of the computer repair person/company would be very helpful. I live in Chapala, but would have no problems taking my laptop to Ajijic or any other lakeside location. My computer is a Dell inspiron with a Windows 7 operating system and is about four years old. Thanks in advance for your help.
  10. Thanks so much for your detailed response, Jeanne. And thanks to other posters for their thoughtful replies.
  11. I am aware there is a FedEx outlet here in Lakeside, but I have no idea where it is. If someone could post the location and phone number for FedEx, I would be very appreciative. Thanks in advance....
  12. I hope the classified ad wasn't selling frozen turkeys. Wasn't Arthur "The Big Guy" Carlson the boss at WKRP in Cincinnati? "With God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
  13. Thanks very much for your response, Spencer. I now understand why the facilitator told me that financials would be required in my situation, since I would have been applying EARLY. I'll wait until 30 days before my FM3's expiration date before applying for permanente status.
  14. I'm confused. I have an FM3 with the number '4' on the back (as in 'four years'). I have been reading on this board that if you have an FM3 with a '4' on the back, financials are NOT necessary when applying for permanente status. Yet my facilitator, whose services I have used for more than a decade, tells me that financials ARE necessary in order for me to get permanente status. I have several months before I need to renew my immigrant status and I'm well aware that the rules and regulations will almost certainly change - or at least be clarified - before my renewal date. However, I would really appreciate knowing for a fact whether financials are required for someone who has an FM3 with a '4' on the back and is applying for permanente status. Thanks in advance for any responses to my question....
  15. Here is a final excerpt from the article, dealing with the massacre so familiar to those living around Lake Chapala: On May 9th, Guadalajarans woke up to a new Zetas atrocity—eighteen headless, dismembered bodies left in two vehicles parked near a popular restaurant out past the airport. Then the police found some more body parts in a safe house in Chapala, a lakeside community that is popular with retired Americans and Canadians, about an hour south of the city. Half of the dead were soon identified. They were local people who had recently gone missing. Ordinary citizens, not narcos, kidnapped and murdered. Four were said to have been students at the University of Guadalajara. That turned out to be only part of the story. It seemed that the Zetas had planned to kidnap and kill fifty people, and to distribute the dismembered corpses around Guadalajara on Mother’s Day. The details of this plan emerged after a kidnapper on guard duty, Laura Rosales Sánchez, fell asleep and a dozen victims, seizing their chance, escaped. It was too late to save the eighteen—and two boys under Laura Rosales’s guard who failed to flee were also killed—but the police managed to arrest four of the kidnappers, who, under interrogation, revealed the grand plan to kill fifty. The kidnappings, their leader confirmed, had been done at random. They just grabbed whomever they could—waiters, a construction worker, a dance teacher in a primary school. The purpose behind all this carnage? To “cause terror,” the arrested leader, who is twenty-seven, said. He seemed vaguely bored at his perp-show press event, where he nonetheless tried to answer every reporter’s question. He was just following orders, he said, from a Zeta named Fernando, who remained at large. Laura Rosales, who is twenty-five, said that she had been mainly helping her brother, Angel, who also remained at large, and that the Zetas were responding, with this massacre, to the killing, up north, of twenty-three Zetas by Chapo Guzmán’s forces. After the Mother’s Day massacre, thirty thousand people, led by University of Guadalajara students and dressed in white, marched silently through the city, protesting the ever-rising tide of violence and the government’s apparent helplessness before it. Around the same time, tens of thousands of students marched in Mexico City in a sudden revolt, launched just weeks before the election, against the constantly reported inevitability of a Peña Nieto victory. Acuerdos between the PRI and the country’s biggest broadcasters, including alleged payoffs exposed by the Guardian, were making this a self-fulfilling prophecy, according to the protesters. There were more marches in June, but the student movement seemed unlikely to stop the return of the PRI. Read more http://www.newyorker...currentPage=all
