  1. (1)  Furry Friends...... lateral  parallel to carretera on EAST side of Mirasol's front gates. Someone else may have contact info, or you could drive out M's gates and around that corner from your house to check it out.

    (2) Pat Lawrie (used to be called Doglandia)  . 376 766 4170     cell 333 442 6244

    By all means encourage your friend to board her cat unless the person coming knows the cat well, and your friend knows the person equally! And that's before considering something happening in THAT person's life (heaven forbid) that could affect that cat's care. Also, a cat alone for most of each 24 hour period has lots of time to be lonely and depressed, get into something it shouldn't, or get quite sick and need special attention.

    Must travel by air to Canada on short notice. I read "Rapid antigen tests aren't accepted." ........

    Canada has announced new stricter requirements for anyone, including Canadians (who have more rights in this area than others) as of today. Up until today, there was a gov't form you filled in on line prior to flying... but even that is now different. Check with your airline ASAP, plus find a way to follow Canadian news as it's still in rapid state of flux. Omicron is the reason.

    Google did recently switch the default to 2-factor verification (which I hate), but it's fairly easy to go into your account settings and turn it off again.

    That's my plan. ALmost never have cell phone on, and certainly not first thing in a.m. when I read my first mail of the day.  So yes, I'll be turning it OFF.

    (Bad enough I have to use cell to get into MercadoLibre  to purchase things.... but at least there  $$ involved so I get the reason)

  4. Hi tech friends.... me again. Nov 19  email received "from Google" in my gmail inbox. Said  effective Nov 25 google would require 2-step verification (involves code sent to cell phone). Research revealed the possibility of turning this option off once one was signed up. Did invite initiating this new process early (I did not --- nor did I want it at all).

    I found it odd they would do this mid-week ......   and not being American didn't immediately connect that date to U.S. Thanksgiving. Connection??? Coincidence ???

    Nevertheless, it's now Nov 27 and nothing has happened so spidey sense is on alert.  Anybody more knowledgeable in these things than I (means almost everybody) have comments?  Gracias

  5. No, BUT for years and years all dogs needing this surgery were sent to Mexico City to a special ophthalmology dog clinic.

    VERY recently, one of the doctors who worked there has set up a new office, fully equipped for this and other surgeries, in Guadalajara.

    I don't have his contact info but if you phone Dr. Antonio Ladron's Guad clinic 333 121 7299   they will have it.  He recently connected a friend with this specialist whose dog has a different, but serious problem.

    Can't remember names now, but have known several over the years who sent dogs to DF to the original clinic, always with excellent results.

  6. Why hilarious? Because if I don't laugh, I'll need to kill my "new-ish" Siamese cat!

    Some will remember my query when ONE remote handset "died". Of course checked all plugs, connections etc. Finally put (correct) new batteries in all 3 sets, with batteries left over. Still didn't really work for more than a few moments..... until it didn't work at all.

    In desperation, gave up and bought a whole new set (got a  bit of a deal on Amazon MX due to Buen Fin). Today started the process of change-over, meaning new batteries in all 3 and leaving to charge for 7 hours as instructed. To do that, had to put the  new one replacing the dead one in same location, and on unplugging the adapter from the wall...... HOLY COW!!!  The little wire had been chewed right in half 🤬... by of course I know exactly whom. Wire  well hidden (or so I thought) behind deep table top so never dreamt she would get at it there.

    Anyway, now will be posting on "For Sale" section here one base unit with answering system, one "intact remote set, and one more that will work IF someone is good at splicing chewed wire together OR wants to buy this one portion. All contain brand new batteries and will include the extras. Meanwhile, Rick S, Pedro K, and others can have a good belly-laugh at my expense.

  7. Thankyou, Chris, for putting this up on THIS board. I know it was on the other one, but many (like me) don't go to both. That said, I hesitated to post here  as was not really my place...... but am glad for this chance to express my extreme shock at the loss of one so young, and my most heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

    Mike was a wonderful guy and a very competent computer tech.........     for both me and my husband for several years. In fact he built my most recent tower (yes, I'm a desktop devotee) , and did his best over and over to drag me kicking and screaming into the 21st century, and from  WIn 95 to Win 7 and finally to Win 10....... which he "altered" just for me so I could pretend it was still the one I had finally learned to use.

    I'll miss him greatly, not just for his services, but because I truly liked him. And of course, because he was Canadian, and he loved cats!
