  1. ....and his uncle Antonio Ladron is an orthopedic surgeon specialist. Antonio's father (Hector's grandfather) founded the U of G vet school, and was Dean until his death in an accident in Spain, so you know the family have been at this for a very long and competent time!
  2. Hotel Italo right in the heart of Ajijic will offer weekly or monthly rates, and has kitchen units if wanted. Not fancy, but good basic accommodation. NOISY when things are happening in the plaza, but a good intro to the local culture! Easy bus access too. I knew a Canadian lady (now deceased) who lived there as her "home" for years! Also google hotels in Ajijc --- forget the name of one across from Lake Chapala Society, but suspect you'd get a reasonable monthly rate from them too if you check early.
  3. Me too, please..... happy it's not true, but did not know how to double-check. Gracias.
  4. And for those who do not read Spanish, Ariel was the first search and rescue dog to die under a falling slab of concrete while performing his duties in the earthquake zone in Mexico City this week, after having saved at least 13 lives. Yes, Rest in Peace, noble one.
  5. THANK YOU tomgates for getting back to the subject at hand and answering the question that was asked. I'm sure if OP wanted take-out etc. options, that would have been the direction her query would have taken!
  6. Well, Ashley, surely thanks are in order to cafemediterraneo for doing the post. But at the same time, surely the BIGGEST thanks goes to the honest garbage collectors...... and a nice monetary reward would be in order.
  7. If the TelMex bill can be in your name, then don't bother changing the CFE bill. The latter will charge you a big deposit and good luck in ever getting it back! Our current rental has a CFE bill that goes back two tenants before us, and neither we nor the landlord could care less. Telmex, on the other hand, will not charge a deposit, and if your landlord agrees (or if you have purchased the property) simply go in there with ID and former bill and they will help you in English. And this will serve as "proof of address" for all things.
  8. Too simplified Geezer.... and leaves out huge variety of products that I, among others, buy there. Also, you are not entirely correct about the produce. In general, it's grouped, but you can find it mixed in with other things over and over as you traverse all 14 blocks (long) and 4-5 blocks wide. Kitchen dry goods (cereals, rice, beans, spices etc.) are on the main drag at Calles 3 and 4, but also on Mandarina around 12, and inside the parking area east of Calle 7 (best place IMO). For example, on Calle Mandarina, between Calles 12 and 13 on ONE side of the street there are candies, pet food and accessories, dry goods (bean, rice, some spices etc.), fresh veggies, and a hole-in-the-wall place to grab a bite to eat -- and this is a very short block! Calle 13 on the other hand is a very long and wide block, and the variety of products on both sides of this street is too numerous to mention (or remember off the top of my head!) Then you come to pet foods -- incredible variety and location of places, depending on brand lines but also mixed in willly-nilly with other items. And this does not begin to cover non-edibles, etc. Take a trip (or more) in there. Park somewhere you are comfortable with and walk a few streets. Do it again on others. Make notes. In time you will figure out what works for you.
  9. Thank you. Uninstalling right now!
  10. So.... I forget. Does Vista pre-date or come after Windows 7 (which is what I have)? Need to know so I can uninstall CC if needed. Gracias.
  11. Come here, enjoy, and have a GOOD look around at many different areas / neighborhoods / available services etc. The biggest mistake a lot of people make is not checking these things out. Then before you know it you're tied to noisy (at might) neighbors, or spotty garbage pickup, off-and-on water (from the street source), or...... the list goes on and on!
  12. MAJOR quake affecting Mexico City, Mexico State, Puebla and Morelos. 77 dead and counting. Ironically, today is the 32nd anniversary of the major quake that flattened Mexico City in 1985. They felt it in Ciudad Guzman here in Jalisco, and a few places in Guad were evacuated (U of G etc.) but pretty far from the epicenter to notice here.

  14. Peter, why not check in Victoria? It's a quick hop via Horizon if you can find one there.
  15. Just read in Informador that the breathalyzer teams will be in action outside the city again, especially this upcoming (holiday) weekend. They mentioned being on the Chapala--Guad highway (of course, no specifics) , and also on the back side of the lake (to catch those who partake too freely of Vampiritos). So consider yourselves warned!!
  16. Sincere condolences for your loss. Doesn't matter how hard we try or how many we lose --- it never gets easier.
  17. TRUE..... and I should have thought of that myself. Thank you Northern Newbie! Hector's new machine should resolve your issues Rony -- 11 vets, 11 opinions-- since the MACHINE will make the diagnosis. And with all the different things it can "read", it will for sure know what's happening and what is not.
  18. Gimpy Chimp said: "......You recommended Dra. Berenice to do it because she used to do "most of the surgery" at the Ladron clinic. Natasha clarified that although Dra. Berenice did many more simple surgeries there, the more complicated orthopedic surgeries were never done by her......" Exactly. I did not dis Berenice.... in fact she's a lovely person and I'm sure good at many things. I simply corrected an incorrect statement about her time at Ladron's clinic.
  19. When I was at Ladron's a couple of weeks ago, I'm almost positive Hector was getting his own US machine that day, and that the techies were coming to calibrate it. So if you go tomorrow, he should be able to help you ASAP. Even without one, he is still the best to try and help your dog. Que tengan suerte!
  20. I'm sorry, but you are 100% INCORRECT...... yes she did lots of spay and neuters surgeries, but never complicated orthopedic surgeries, etc. while she was there. Hector Ladron out here, or his uncle Antonio Ladron in their clinic in Guad -- either way you can't find any better.
  21. Don't you think that question would be better answered by a veterinarian? And yes, it works well in humans---- but is now known to have drastic side effects (especially stomachs) in humans and oral use in US / Canada is being markedly reduced. Topical gel seems not to be as risky.
  22. There's an easier (IMO) way to go, altho' it involves 8 km on the Periferico. If you want to know more, call me at 766-3580 I go there often and use this "better" route.
  23. Yes -- it's a wonderful facility. But this is a blatant effort by poster to bypass NO ADVERTISING rules. Mods????
  24. ADVERTISING! Are all you mods on vacation this weekend?
