  1. How can I cancel Part B in Medicare? Who do I call or send an email to? Has anyone else cancelled theirs? I have lived here in MX since 2006 and have never used Part B for seeing a Dr. or being hospitalized! I keep forgetting to follow up on it! Maw
  2. Highly recommend Ricardo GAlindo. His cell phone is 3317 462959..
  3. I highly recomend Ricardo Galindo 331-746-2959 who is very experienced in the caregiving you are looking for. He has been with us now for 7 months and works 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours later in the afternoon We hired him when my husband came home from the nursing home in April after getting a bacterial infection from a cruise we were on in January. He is now using a walker after being in a wheelchair for 8 months! Ricardo now works with him in the gym and swimming pool. He is also a great cook!! Mary Ann Waite
  4. Cafe Montana across the highway from Panino's has a very nice garden and very good food and good parking!! maw
  5. I love the food there! The roast beef sandwich with potato salad is my favorite!! And their lemon tart! So-o-ooo good!.. I always order an extra one to take home!! The garden area is beautiful to look at and the tables are as gorgeous as all the lights above!! I also held a private party there at 5:00 for 45 people and they did a great job! Beer & wine is also available! maw
  6. You can also buy bulk chocolate at El Granero in Ajijic next to Gossip's and across the street from the Ajijic Hospital.
  7. Just got back from taking the maid and Patricks caregiver home in the village. Leaving El Dorado the big tree in front of the guard booth is down. blocking the exit to leave! Had to use the other lane to leave. Returning home the libramiento is open to only one lane as another tree fell blocking the west lane!! Emergency vehichles are directing traffic to take turns using the east lane! Stay safe and stay indoors!!! maw
  8. There is also an Evento rental store in Chapala on Juarez near the mercado. maw
  9. I take my Samsung toner cartridge to the guy in the kiosk by Telmex and buy another like it that is filled. Cost is $500 pesos. maw
  10. CI Banco in Laguna Mall has an ATM that reads your card with a chip. They also have the lowest fee- $17.9 pesos to use their ATM. maw
  11. I agree. I refuse to give him any business. I read a notice on Super Lakes outside wall from a waiter that used to work for him. He wouldn't pay his staff- only promises that he would get paid next week. Empty promises, and eventually they quit and he hires more who fall for the same line.
  12. Super Lake does have a lot of items not seen anywhere else. It is worth the trip to go there. He also carries many items from Costco. He also carries a lot of bulk items from the abastos in Guad. I don;t mind paying the upcharge. It saves me from having to drive to Guad!! maw
  13. I had the best Beef Tenderloin at La Mision!! Our 50th is January 20th!! maw

    Curing salt

    It's been reported that El Granero next to Gossips now carries it!
  15. They are all closed on Monday to drain and clean the pools. The best day to go is Tuesday- nice clean water! maw
  16. It is easier to say if it is on the lakeside (south) or mountainside(north) because your directions are from driving from Chapala when we are driving from Ajijic! LOL! I m thinking you must be on the lakeside in the 2 story building near Upscale Resale. The last building on the right as you drive to Chapala from Ajijic.
  17. When I first used Uber in Miami before our cruise I thought I paid the driver. Wrong. Uber will debit the amount owed from your bank account. No money changes hands by yourself and the driver. If you do pay money to the driver-that is his tip!! You are quoted a price and if you accept it is debited to your account! I also found out that they-the Uber app- will tell you how many minutes it will take the driver to get to your address that you are calling from. If you miss the ride because you were late getting outside the driver can leave and you are still charged for the ride!! We found out this the hard way when we were in Paris!! LOL! maw
  18. I have Netflix MX paying monthly in US $. There is so much to watch. I used to have a VPN and gave it up. Decided I didn't need it. maw
  19. I agree Liz is very nice & helpful and I also heard that Russ is no longer involved in the business!!
  20. We have Canadian friends who want to come down and will housesit for you at no charge.  Please call Paul and Marie-Paul Lacasse.  001-250-836-0033.  I e-mailed them about your housesitter request and they just called me very excited about the opportunity!  We have known them for over 7 years when we first rented out our casita to them.  They have housesat for us taking care of our 2 dogs.  We highly recommend them!

  21. I have heard the same story from a resident in Chapala Haciendas that she has seen UFO's hovering over the lake. It happens around 2am when she awakens and looks out her window with a clear view of the lake. She also said that sometimes they dissapear into the lake! maw
  22. I take a magnesium tablet before bed. If I forget to take it I am awake every 2 hours. If I remember to take it I can sleep for 6 hours without waking up. maw
  23. I buy russets at Gabriel's when I am heading west and also buy them at Seminilla's y Cereales across the street from Gabriel's when I am heading east- just a few doors west of Dr. Leon's office. maw
  24. I will second Avineda La Paz- that street has many, many stores- small & large with everything to outfit a restaurant or a home kitchen including appliances. The prices are much better than Belle Cuisine plus you can bargain and get discounts. I took a friend there and she got a nice set of dinnerware that reminds me of all the unusual dinnerware they use on "Chopped". maw
