  1. Harry we had the same problem with the gardenia.. I assumed it was the heavy rain we had that drowned it but I do not know.. The gardner who is very good could not figure it out and we cut the gardenisa to sticks and I am waiting to see if it will take off again but it was a strange one.. Only one type of gardenia got afeected and the other plants did not so it may have been a different cause but the plant went very quickly from the blooming stage to yellow...
  2. I guess you did not understand what you read.. The hardwre stores were closed because of the government order.. I had a man coming to work today and he could not work because his material was at the hardwarestore and it was closed.. Hardware stores are usually open on Saturday mornng, in case you did not know.
  3. conlkusion s do not go on Friday.. or Tuesdays.. because of the sales..
  4. In France they make the bouillie de Bordeaux with copper sulfate for the vineayrd and it works especially when you do not have to spray after each rain.. Since the rain is over that should work f you can find it. or make it
  5. In France no one s allowed out so that solves the problem , although almost no one goes out to trick or treat since it is not a tradition there. Being French , I like than no tradition part and I will not be opening the door either.
  6. The word wedge in English is the same and used in many other instances other than the tool.
  7. same with the metal spatula the painters use.
  8. ok I see I remembered correctly.. Ask for a cuña in a hardware store and they should have one. I know I bought one, years ago here but like everything else it seems to be missing in action..
  9. I think a wedge is called a cuña... could be wrong but that is what I kind of remember

    yes it is a wonderful town to visit at the right time of the year.. Visiting and living full time are very different scenarios. We have been there many times. went to the opera . enjoy the food like to walk arounat night and listen to the music on the plazas. like to go to the beaches on the gulf and visit the runs in the Yucatan, QUintana Roo, Campeche, etc... but we still would not live ther efull time.
  11. My pool is dropping fast too, no rain and a warm sun will do that every time As for the lake it will do what it will do it goes down every year during the rainy season and will come back if we have a good rainy season, if not it will continue to go down nothing new..
  12. I saw dr Briseño at the new location yesterday and he told me they were opeinng on Monday. They were hard at work setting up things in the new location so you can always call on Monday to confirm your appointment.

    hot , humid and with streets without trees.. Except for the large avenues and plazas no trees.. It is true in most colonal cities but the majority do not have that kind ofclimate.. We explored it to go and live rather than spend a week or so and returned happy we did not live there.
  14. Jennifer, hope you can recover some hearing but I hear from the various doctors I saw that the longer you wait to have treatment and the most unlikely it s. I started the injections of cortisone in the inner ear yesterday and the doctor says that if there is to be improvement it should be after the third or fourth shot (week.) ,. He also told me that as time goes on the improvements just do not happen. I am taking SERC for the vertigo and I am doind better but I realize that it could come back any time and that is no fun. I really feel for you.
  15. I had a root cana when I was about 21 without any sedation and believe the needles look really good after you have been through that once..
  16. Dr Martinez operated on my shoulder last year, he did a great job and the shoulder he operated on is better than my other shoulder.
  17. i have fiber from Telmex in Ajijic below the Hotel Danza del sol
  18. My problem started one month ago.. I suddenly fell and could not even sit without falling on my back , I had nausea, the walls were spinning, I had cold sweat and had no balance so I was taken to the hospital by ambulance , they did a ct scan of the brain and I had no lesions ,, stayed 3 days in the hospital and received cortisoids amongst other things.. Now that the doctors saw the audiometry resutlts they think it is worth doing the cortesoids directly in the inner ear. That is done in a hospital where they have the equipments and they think that after 5 onjections I may or may not recover
  19. Which ant - inflamatory was it? I have taken various because of the back issue I have. When I lost my hearing I was so dizzy that I could not stand nor sit so they took me by ambulance to San Antonio.. I had low blood pressure there when I usually have normal to a little high blood pressure. I am not on ani inflammatory medecine no more,,, and my hearing is still gone.. I did a CT Scann and an audioñogy test and the doctor is recommending a 5 weeks treatment.. the type where they inject cortison in the ear.. She suspect a virus.. but of course who knows..
  20. It sounds great especially when you cannot see the tank. In my case , I buy the gaz and I check it, it is easy as it is close to the driveway,. My husband cannot get ther ebut he does not buy the gaz.. that day the bell rang, he thought it was someone he was waiting for so opened the gate and the gaz guy came in s my husband asked him to check the meter.. We always suspected that this company was cheating people so we did not buy from them so my husband said thank you.. I went to check the meter just to see and sure enough they were lying. We did not get gas from them so no big deal but the
  21. yes that is what labs do now.. there are several top notch labs in Guadaljara and they are worth it .
  22. no and you can report people who refuse to give you a factura to SAT, they will get a factura for you...
  23. The seiche would explain the changes in water lever in a particular area but it has nothng to do with the lake volume so I am missing something as well ..
  24. An MRI of the brain is around 8000 pesos at Bañuelos you need to know if the doctor wants contrast and for that it is another 170 pesos.
  25. Jennifer. I am just gong through test for a sudden loss of hearing so I have been seen audiologist, otorinos etc.. My recommendation to you is to go to Guadaljara for your test Bañueño is a little higher than chopo but s also better. An appointment with a specialist is aroung 900 pesos in Guadaljara as well as Ajijic. I am gong to go to Guadaljara for a treatment of the ear to try to recuparate some hearing so I will be going to Guadaljara within the next 2 weeks to see doctors.. I speak fluent Spanish if you need help let me know.. What is the name of the MRI you need, I ca
