  1. Have you seen the skate park? There are myriad "murals" all over the skate park now. I imagine they feel ownership (to the max). Some of them are skillfully done.
  2. Sounds like they have some delicious choices. It would also be good to have some clue regarding prices. Possible?
  3. I made a list of numbers of people I know and have been blocking everything else that comes in. Getting lots of one ring only calls now. Definite improvement.๐Ÿ˜Ž
  4. We had another "crepe special" there last night. It was even better than the previous time, and the many courses (appetizers, soup, salad and the main course) offered a fine variety of flavors. My husband had the Mexican crepe and I had the seafood. Both were delicious. These are serious, filling crepes. We didn't have room for dessert after that. The price is a bargain at $125 pesos. We arrived at 6 pm, so the noise of passing trucks was bad. I'd recommend going later.
  5. I do realize that there is no practical way to make Medicare work in Mexico. My major problem with the way it works is the size of the penalty for dropping it, for people who have been out the country and couldn't use it, and then want to re-up. Seems way out of proportion. However, I also realize that scaring the spit out of people who aren't certain they will stay in Mexico for the rest of their lives is a very effective way to keep them paying. Unfair, but effective.
  6. Those are good reasons, and they are wise to maintain coverage.
  7. Oh, the temptation.........but I'll resist.๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. Sorry, but that explanation doesn't work for me. The problem is that a person is paying for something THEY CAN'T USE. If Part B could be used in Mexico, I would have no problem with it. The government rationale "for U.S. citizens/RESIDENTS, in the U.S......etc." We aren't residents if we are living outside the country. I calculated the amount the cancellation saved me and my husband so far and the number is approaching $40,000 U.S. That takes care of a substantial number of out-of-pocket medical expenses. If I had retained Part B, I would have had to pay for it, plus the out of pocket expense here. A fair system, IMHO, would be to reimburse those carrying Part B for their Mexican medical bills. For one thing, it would cost the govt. less than if the person returned to the U.S. with their far higher costs. However, who ever said the U.S. Govt. was concerned with fairness?๐Ÿ™ƒ
  9. .Considering that I cancelled Part B in 2004, I think I'll stay in Mexico till the "end".๐Ÿ˜‚ But, while we're on the subject, I would like to know what the government's rationale is for selling an insurance product which can only be used in the U.S. but must be paid for monthly, and if not continued, will result if a outrageous penalty for re-upping it. I can't think of anything else that works like that, can you?๐Ÿ™„
  10. What is your source for saying that you would have to "pay a penalty plus all monthly fees you didn't pay? I understand that your rate would go up, based on the length of time you were not on Part B. But that's it, according to my information.

    Where is this restaurant? Not planning to eat there after that review: just curious. Never heard of it before.
  12. Where is the restaurant located? What are the hours?
  13. My error. It is across from Quality Care. I would not recommend going there. Mascaras Clinic is a better choice, IMO.
  14. The great advantage of Polo is that he is trained to repair hearing aids, so that if repairs are needed, one need not be deprived of them while they are sent "somewhere". He makes adjustments when needed while you wait.
  15. You're welcome. We really needed to hear about a dog in the place we eat "contentedly licking his balls", didn't we? How gross do you folks want to get, anyway?
  16. Most of this thread has had a large dose of snark seasoning. Much more emotion than reason.
  17. We had dinner there tonight. Great sides of guacamole and liver pate. Mushroom soup with multiple mushrooms. Outstanding crepes in many flavors. Very good value at $125 p. Highly recommended. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  18. Good example of "clueless".
  19. It's obvious from some of the posts in this thread that some people haven't a clue what consideration of others and common courtesy means. Sad.
  20. The nex๏ปฟt General Meeting will be on May 6, 2019 at the la Bodega restaurant on 16 de Septiembre in Ajijic. Coffee from 9:30. Meeting at 10:00 All those who are either artists at any level, craftspeople, students or simply interested in art are welcome to attend the meeting free of charge. Check it out and if you decide to become members and participate in our shows, our treasurer will be happy to sign you up. There is usually a demonstration or film after the short business meeting. Newcomers to Lakeside...welcome!
  21. That's a problem, isn't it? The worst offender that I otherwise like is Yves, where the big old dog drapes himself across the entrance to the kitchen and the garden sports up to three donkeys and a chained up canine with a bad disposition. Still, I'm a sucker for the salad bar and go there anyway. Sigh.๐Ÿ™ƒ
  22. If you are not bringing a dog into a restaurant, you are neither one of the "entitled" nor the "inconsiderate". I was speaking of actions, not opinions.
  23. "nobody can give an honest report on any restaurant without someone taking over the thread for their own crusade." That is not true. Thanks to the original praise given to the restaurant, we are all aware that they serve good food. The Problem is their mascotas policy, which they have chosen. They will get the patronage of most people who posted if they change that and/or if people are considerate of others and behave accordingly.
  24. If the restaurant wants to succeed, it will pay attention to what people are saying here and cater to the considerate, law abiding potential customers instead of to the inconsiderate, entitled ones. End of story. Amen.
