    If you have them done by a makeup artist they will look natural. They will mix colors so you will get the look you want. I had mine done and eyeliner as well. Never regretted it. Sometimes the tattoo artists go too heavy.

    Sounds good - did you have your eyebrows done in Ajijic - I certainly wouldn't want them to look ridiculous or conspicuous.

    Several people have reported Internet outages in a haphazard fashion during the last few days.

    Unplug your Vonage box from the power.

    Do a factory reset on your modem by holding a pin into the little hold on the back until the lights flash. Then wait the five minutes or so to get the Internet light back.

    Plug your Vonage box back in and wait until the blue globe lights up on front, or the screen indicates Internet, or your phone has a dial tone.

    We tried that but no lights flash - how long do we need to hold the pin in the hole, please?

    Actually, it's much more than a side dish, or simply a substitute for potatoes or some other starch. It's a complete protein.

    I used to eat barley and then read that quinoa was more healthy, so I switched over although I actually prefer the taste of barley.  But if you can find organic or mixed quinoa (red, black and white) it's actually pretty tasty as long as you prepare it properly.


  5. Thank you for excellent input.  I'm now back at Lakeside and here's an update. 

    On August 28  I began taking cannabis oil and by my return on October 16 (with a dosage of 2 ml twice a day) I unfortunately had got no relief from my pain.  After so many good reports from people, I was really disappointed especially since I've  been living with chronic pain for over 3 years and it's really wearing me down.

    So what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for others.  Back to the drawing board - damn it !!

  6. Well you guys don't know how to cook quinoa.

    Simmer it for about 20 minutes with chicken broth or consomme, and then add black ground pepper, a little salt and mixed herbs - and voila, you have a tasty nutritious side dish that you can have instead of potatoes or be added to salads.  Don't judge it by its appearance.

  7. I found white Quinoa in bulk on the Carretera next to Gossips but it was rather bland.

    I'm looking for something more interesting and tasty like mixed or red quinoa.  I did find small pre-packaged quinoa in SuperLake but it was too expensive.  Does anyone know where I can find some, please?

    I ordered CBD oil in June of 2015 from the U.S.  It got here the third week in September of 2015. The point being that it CAN be ordered and received but I wish I'd chosen a courier for delivery. As far as I know, there is nobody TESTING for content in Mexico so I'm not sure how you get what you're ordering. It's a crap shoot.


    Wow, 3 months is a long wait.  How did you select a supplier and what were the prices like?  If it can be ordered from the U.S. you'd think I could get it from Canada as well.


  9. I have recently begun taking cannabis oil for pain control and feel that it's beginning to help.  It's legal in Canada and also in Mexico but illegal to take it across the border.

    Can someone please let me know if I can get a prescription from my local GP in Ajijic and where I can buy the oil, including the 1:1 drops which is equal amounts of CBD and THC.

    Is there an online supplier in Mexico the same as in Canada?  Obviously I want to be sure I'm buying good quality, safe cannabis.

    Any info would be much appreciated and serious replies only, please.


  10. Yes, I am sorry for  being MIA - life gets in the way sometimes and we can't always respond in a timely fashion.  It wasn't my intention to ask for free legal advice but realize it may have looked that way.  Probably not knowing how the he system works and asking for advice can backfire but I do thank everyone who gave helpful and thoughtful comments and information.

  11. Spencer, could you please step in here and let me know the situation.  Thanks.

    You do not need to be Temporal before becoming Permanente.  You may apply for it directly from a Consulate outside of Mexico.  You will be approved as long as you can prove income requirements.  If income is joint, you will need to show original marriage certificate and it will possibly need an Apostille. 

    This is not guess work on my part.  The information is directly from Immigration as well as an attorney here.
