    New 500 pesos bank note

    For those who have not seen them, yet, there is a picture of the front and back of one at: news.coinupdate.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/mexico-2018-500-pesos-pair.jpg
  2. I ran across this article today and thought it beneficial to share for those of us living Lakeside, especially as it addresses scorpion, wasp, and bee stings, as well as snake bites. It even tells you what size tampons to use for different caliber bullet holes! (God forbid anyone ever needs that information!) Plus, it even has good suggestions for pet first aid kits. Creating a First Aid Kit Suited to YOU and YOUR Needs NOTE: While the article above is very thorough, it does not go into surgical first aid kits, but if knowledgeable and interested, these kits have really improved beyond simple scalpels, gauze, medical tape and sutures. They now include surgical skin staplers, pre-threaded suture needles, saline-loaded flush syringes, blood-clotting agents, anti-bacterial breathable tissue adhesives (skin glue) topical anesthetics, etc. Of course, in Mexico it is easy to obtain syringes and vials of anesthetics for use prior to suturing some wounds and can be a good addition to any field surgery kit. Check with applicable laws before traveling.
  3. Turn down the volume: Jalisco municipality works on noise bylaw Ocotlán is aiming to be one of the first municipalities in Jalisco to implement anti-noise regulations in line with statewide legislation. Let’s make some noise: Panasonic designs stronger speakers for Mexico Some people think Mexico is loud enough already but Panasonic is introducing two new, stronger speakers, designed especially for Mexico.
  4. We live in Riberas and have a bunch of stuff we can donate,  but don't have a car. If you can arrange to get the stuff there, we would love to help. Call for Beverley at 106-0848 (She knows what we have. I don't.)

    EXCELLENT auto body repair!

    Good to know... and timely for me. Thanks!
  7. Jose Louis Gonzales 331-326-4662 I had problems with my water pump (bomba) and had two different plumbers who came three different times and could not resolve the problem. I'm German and Scottish and my Italian neighbor (go figure) recommended a bi-lingual plumber (Spanish/English) who came out, took my pump to the shop to have the pressure valve(s) fixed, came back the next morning and reinstalled it and everything worked fine... but not until he replaced some guts in my toilet (which was leaking slowly and regularly into the bowl) and put a new pilot light unit on my hot water heater (which I requested) but the pilot still wouldn't stay lit (which I could verify) because the thermostat was bad. He had a bigger one for a different water heater which he brought back the next day and sold me for less than the actual model for my water heater, that works better than the original. This one will likely even save me propane. I recommend this lumber highly. His knowledge was excellent, he was punctual, his work skills commendable and his prices were reasonable and competitive.

    Where Do You Buy Vitamins?

    I second Prasad, next to Telmex in Ajijic. It is in the first little strip of stores on your right when you turn onto the service road at Revoloution and head toward the Telmex. Great people with a pretty good selection (lots of Puritans Pride brands) and even some unexpected items like refrigerated Royal Jelly (a fairly rare bee secretion supposedly reserved for the Queen Bee that allegedly has a myriad of health benefits) such as preventing certain types of cancer, lower blood pressure, treat sexual infertility, lower cholesterol levels, protect the liver, reduce inflammation, heal digestive disorders, prevent premature aging, help in weight loss, and increase circulation.

    Want some input from someone who really knows.

    If you have an extra $35K USD cash laying around, I would go to Dr. Golpa in Las Vegas. I have researched him for the past 3 years and cannot find one complaint... unusual for a US based concern. They have a new office in Dallas, which is where I plan to go. Golpa Dental Implant Center - Golpa G4-Implant Solution

    good school for kids with adhd

    Again, off topic from the initial request, but I mention it because I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and in my 60's still seem to have mild symptoms. Anyway, I heard a great interview with Dr. Mary Ann Block from The Block Center discussing psychotropic drugs for the treatment of ADHD at "What the media and medical industry do not want you to know" Dr. Block apparently went to med school at age 39 to save her son. She graduated and got her MD and now she runs The Block Center in Dallas-Ft Worth, I believe. The interview was good enough that it compelled me to mention it. Here is the link to her site: ADHD Non-Drug Program - The Block Center Perhaps there is some good information that can be gleaned from there.

    Is there a kind soul out there?

    I ordered 6 computer parts, CPU, Motherboard, Memory, Memory Cards for my camera... I had to pay the Aduana bill, but when I opened the package, only one memory card was in the box. I am very skeptical about anything shipped across the border.

    Computer Problem

    Perhaps use the search tool. It has worked wonders for me when searching for lost e-mails. How to Search Outlook.com Email Search for a specific person's name, airline name, or any word you recall being in the e-mail, such as GDL or the originating airport code.
