  1. My husband had this problem.  He went to Dr. Rodriguez at Hospital Ajijic.  The doctor sent him home to put oil in his ear for a few days to soften the wax and then cleaned out his ear.  We had thought that he needed hearing aids but all it was was wax.  Never had a balance problem before or after.

  2. elrich, this happened to both of us ... our SSN locked.  Therefore, we did not receive our SS checks.  It was because we had not received the forms they mailed us that need to be filled out saying we were still alive and living outside the U.S.  At least then the office was open in Guadalajara and they handled it all by email and we got our SS checks they had been holding in about 3 weeks.

    We have not received a stimulus check yet either.  When I went to the website to enter our banking information it said to not fill it out if we received our SS checks by direct deposit as they would use that information.  When I checked again it said we would receive payment on May 15 which came and went.  I checked again and it says that they have mailed our checks to the address on file ... which, of course, is here.  I don't know if we will ever see those checks or not.  Half the time our mail is delivered to someone else's house and part of the time it is thrown out in the yard.  We found our mail and a neighbor's mail once sitting on the curb down the street while taking a walk.

  3. Does anyone know if Mago's is still in business?  We used them for years with our immigration documents and we have a friend that we have referred.  However, now when they are called apparently no one speaks English and when asked if this is her office a lady tells you in Spanish "not here" and hangs up.  When I look on the internet it shows them open and doing the same business.

  4. vetteforron, I hope you stayed because you are needed in the care of the people you have in your facility.  If that is not the case ... need to know as yours is one on our list if we ever need that kind of help.  Would hate to think you have changed from years ago when you helped us when my mom was dying.  I thought immediately that you were joking but then I saw you are also into fast cars?  so, maybe the women and tequila are real now?

  5. We stayed because this is our home now and whatever happens to us will happen here.  We have excellent doctors and hospitals available to us.  Our medical insurance is here and they notified us early on for us not to worry because they were covering the virus just like they would any other illness with the same deductible.  We have help here if we need it that we could not have in the States.  Our housekeepers have been with us for 15 years and if we needed anything they would be here in a heart beat as we would be for them as well.  Right now they are being paid to stay home because we are able to manage on our own but if one of us had a fall, or some other illness than the virus where we needed help they would be here helping.  We can call our doctors on their cell phones and they answer us themselves.  The weather is much better than anywhere in the States where we have relatives that we might stay with and we have 3 precious dogs that we certainly would not want to leave behind even though the housekeeper takes good care of them when we are gone.  So, all in all we are very happy sheltering in place right here at home.  BTW, so very sorry that there are those on this board that think it is okay to talk about anything they see fit but that no one else can without snarky comments.  I believe they are the ones with time on their hands.  Many of us do have a lot of time on our hands and it is nice to just connect with someone whether or not you know them once in a while.  Thanks for asking.

  6. Check out Super Lake.  They get it delivered from Costco so you can also purchase it there ... the brand is Price and it is imported.  It is very tasty to us.  It is expensive and comes in a large container but we treat ourselves every once in a while.

     

  7. Sorry but we adopted two young dogs and they bonded with each other and with both of us.  They play together, sleep together with me on my bed, one is on my recliner with me when watching TV or reading and one with my husband.  The last pair of babies we adopted that have now passed away of old age were the same.  They have each other for company when we go out.

  8. Went there again today.  Same great food and service.  The first time we went we almost left because we wanted more than just a "sandwich".  Well, every type of "sandwich" we have had there has been the most tasty meal.  Today I had a chicken, fresh spinach, feta cheese, avocado on nut bread that was to die for.  The chicken was fresh and perfectly cooked.  I would never have thought to combine feta cheese and chicken myself but it was delicious to say the least ... the different choices comes with salad or fries included.  The Gyros and wraps are also a tasty meal and they have now added two different hamburger choices and hot dogs if your interest in those.

  9. We had the same problem of a large increase.  No need to hire a lawyer.  It took about 45 minutes of waiting for our turn but in the meantime one of the men did the research needed and had the documents ready for the man that was verifying and changing the information on the computer.  Both of these men that helped us spoke English.  We wound up paying less than last year instead of more.
