  1. Now wait. The hottest month in our area used to be May, according to the travel books when we were checking them out in the late 1990s.. Travel books also said weather turned grand when the rains cooled things off in June. We came down for a trial run, weather in May and June turned out to be just as described, and we moved here in 1997. May/June weather stayed like that for years. Now indeed the hot months begin as early as March. Now I don't want to begin any argument about global warming. Really, I'm just sayin': It's hotter earlier now than it used to be. I agree with all the positive things being said here to answer the poster's questions. However, some of you who came here 20-plus years ago, as my husband and I did, might remember the hot month of May--and not earlier--my way. I wonder if the travel guides to living in Mexico have had to rewrite the weather. Doesn't matter to me. I'm here to stay . . . .apparently. Lexy
  2. Tiny, there's a thought: I'm going to check if my cleaning woman throws the dirty water out there after mopping the floors. Angus, just yesterday drinking water occurred to me and I poured some water out there along the narrow concrete strips that are a sort of border around the dirt/weeds. I was trying to get it to run into the corners and accumulate. I'll do it again this evening after the sun goes down. Other than that, how do I put out water for a lizard? Tiny and Jonnyintrouble--Could you do your comic stand-ups on some other thread? I've got grieving lizard-family survivors out there.
  3. No, RV, that can't be it. They're grounded and water heater is far above them on the wall. They've been thriving for months up until now. In fact, they can't even climb those walls--I've seen several of them try to and always fall back down after getting about seven inches up. I thought lizards could grip a wall. But these walls are painted smooth, maye that's it. But this dying is a whole new thing.
  4. No. The small area has a high wall and my neighbors and I can't even see each other. And I don't use insecticides back there. If I could I'd catch the remaining one or two and let them go on the front grass. But anything involving bending and quick movement is beyond me these days.
  5. Just outside my back door in a walled-in space (where my hot water heater is mounted) I have (had) a small colony of small green lizards (anoles). I've watched three grow into a group of about seven over the past few months. A week or so ago I realized that one hadn't moved over a period of time and on closer look realized it was dead. I figured its time had come naturally. But within a short period of time I'm seeing their dead bodies one or now two at a time. This morning two dead and two others seem close to expire (the latter two seem weak; they aren't scurrying away as fast when I approach as they normally would). Since they've thrived for months in this spot I can't imagine what's changed that's causing them to die. I've tried to research the problem online, but haven't found this particular problem addressed. I feel awful about it; they're almost like pets. They keep me entertained, as they're right outside my office window. Anyone have any ideas? Lexy
  6. For anyone interested, I called Lakeside Medical and it might have been Lidia I talked to. She said rental was 1700 monthly. I asked about weekly and she said 1200. It's high weekly as they prefer monthly rentals. Our former facility at last told me the charge of oxygen concentrator is/was 1800 p for the three days use. Lexy
  7. thanks, all. ...I'm having computer problems.... This person is getting what is due her--already in her account--minus what rent credit is due us. Gotta go before this message is wiped out by my new bug. Lexy
  8. Thanks. I'm hearing about 1500 p a month, too, which would be 150 pesos a day. Our credit due on prepaid rent is 2400 or 3600 pesos (1200 pesos a day). No wonder she wouldn't admit what the oxygen concentrator cost. I understand what she's doing but can't air the details on this forum, of course. Wouldn't want to waste the time anyway. Looks like I have a bit of a hassle--or can avoid a hassle and simply subtract my credit due from what she says my final meds bill is, deposit the payment into her Actinver account, and be rid of her. I'm prepared to pay the actual cost of the oxygen thing if she sends a bill....Honest me. Lexy
  9. Sandrita was asking about the place opposite QC on Interlago Plaza. Gringal, you mentioned the place you went to is on Laguna Plaza? Lexy
  10. Does anyone know about how much a nursing home charges a resident patient for use of an oxygen concentrator? I'm about to settle a final meds bill having moved my husband to a better place. A credit is due on his monthly prepaid rent for three days. But the director says what he's owed in credit is about what it cost for the use of the ogygen concentrator, so it's a wash, she says, but won't tell me what the cost was for oxygen concentrator. At most, he used the machine two, three days. The director of our new place is away today and I'm anxious to know now. I've checked on line for general info and rental costs are not anywhere near the credit we're due. Lexy
  11. My husband and I have had a joint account at Actinver in Ajijic for years. Recently we added a niece living in the States to the joint account with no problems. This is better than making her a beneficiary, as she has immediate access to the funds if need be and avoids the complications of an inheritance. My husband and I have another joint account in USAA bank in the US to receive our SS checks. All this works exactly as we want it to. Lexy
  12. My husband is gravely ill. He is in a place now I would like to get him out of. I fear for his welfare. I do not want to post here where he is. So PM me with a response, if you have one, from your personal experience, please. Has anyone had a good experience with Nursing Home Lake Chapala in Riberas? I will appreciate any useful information you can offer. Lexy
  13. Very relieved. Although six months from now makes for a very dirty car. Lexy
  14. Have any of you had experience renting a Hoyer lift? This is an electric-powered device that is used to move a patient in a nursing home, for example, from bed to chair or other resting place. The nursing home my husband is in says its charge for monthly rental of a hoyer lift would be 1800 pesos. It rents the device from Lidia Zamudio, a medical supplies place at Lakeside. If you've had personal experience in such a rental and from where and at what cost I'd appreciate hearing from you. Thanks, Lexy
