  1. Horrible scene in Toronto today. Guy ran onto sidewalk in Toronto - Younge and Finch area. At this time 9 dead, 16 in hospital. No firm motive yet. So very sad
  2. I totally get that. Same thing happened to me twice down here. |I have spinal stenosis and was told I would be in a wheelchair if I didn't get a 3 level spinal fusion immediately!! I ran (well, limped) away as fast as I could. Now, after a year of continual physical therapy and daily exercise I am still "not in a wheel chair!" Guess we will always be "the wallets" here. Arghhh.
  3. To have a doctor as qualified as Dr. Santiago answer so many questions and offer so many medical opinions is of great value. Why would anyone object? Thanks Dr. Santiago for your help. And, I do not use Dr. Santiago services but do appreciate his dedication. Wookie, do you feel the same when Spencer McMillan posts?? Just wondering!
  4. We are looking to hire a reliable, steady gardener. Prefer Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays. Large property but easy to maintain. Good pay, good working environment. Approx. 12 hours per week. Prefer some english if possible. Hoping to find someone who enjoys their job. Please pm me if you might have a great gardener who needs more work. Our gardener of 7 yrs recently retired. thanks in advance for your recommendations!
  5. Can this be done to help with spinal stenosis?
  6. What about this proceedure for spinal issues? Anybody know?
  7. Julieta, do you have a list of local references that you are able to supply?
  8. Excuse me but why would any visitor or temporal think they should be able to obtain any kind of funded medical here? Wouldn't that be up to the travelling expat to obtain their own insurance coverage while out of their home country? And for the permanente's - I would have thought that almost everybody would be caring their own private medical insurance coverage? We have a private policy thru Healthcare International Inc. (out of the UK) - they offer excellent coverage for a very affordable price. They are expat -insurance experts. Google to find their website. You can even obtain a quote right on the website. Many choices layed out for you to see. PM me if you want more info. Personally, I wouldn't want to count on SP for anything and I think IMSS could be close to becoming the same problem. Food for thought.
  9. Thunder and lightening. In Chapala Haciendas - very loud and bright.
  10. We are going to open an account here - we live in Chapala. Can anybody tell me if HSBC has english speaking tellers? We would like to stay clear of Ajijic if possible. Thanks in advance for your comments.
  11. Bruce will have a fantastic Christmas this year! Thanks to all at the Ranch for the great work you all continue to do for our doggie community!!
  12. Sundays. 10 am - ? It is a lovely market with lots of good fresh veggies and fruits. We go there often.
  13. So much gossip...........Stop it already.
  14. Great nails at New Look Studio - next to Super Lake plaza. Ask for Ali - the best job here IMO.
  15. Easy solution..........come on out to Chapala Haciendas......centrally located, and so quiet, all we hear are the birds..........
  16. Thanks to those who actually replied to my question. I appreciate your information and your personal comments on your personal experiences. I will keep your comments private. Much appreciated.
  17. I am looking for info on La Valentina Assisted Living Home in West Ajijic. My parents are both in their 80's - both with Parkinsons. I am looking to bring them down here to have them close to me. I am also looking at Mi Casita in San Antonio. I would appreciate all comments that come from direct knowledge about both places. Thanks everybody for your help.
  18. It's been our experience that the majority of the "street dogs" pose very little issue. The larger issue are the ex-pats who feel they have the right to walk their dogs off leash. Many of them are not well socialized and do attack smaller dogs. Just take a walk down the mailcon in Ajijic - far too many being walked off leash.
  19. Baby not due until mid March. Maybe she is taking a well deserved vacation?
  20. I have just completed having 4 dental implants done - with Dr. Candy. She is an amazing Dentist - she did an amazing and perfect professional job. I am thrilled with the results and her professionalism. The entire process was pain free and I am so grateful to have such and wonderfully talented lady here to serve our community. If you have not seen Dr. Candy yet, go meet her - you will not be disappointed. We wouldn't trust anybody else with our dental care.
  21. Just come as you are and enjoy the show. It is the biggest gathering of both expats and Mexican Nationals all gathering in a happy and fun event. For the first timer, be prepared to be amazed on many levels. I think it is the best event of the entire year here. Saturday, come soon! Enjoy!
  22. Love it. Keep these checkpoints coming! Nobody tolerated drunk driving NOB , why are we not all clapping hands and supporting this effort here. Too many lives have been lost to this. Make the penalties as high as possible I say! Viva Mexico!! Set em up all over Lakeside every weekend all weekend and maybe we will get less "party crowds from the city" on weekends. We all need to support and encourage this effort. Well done Jalicso!!!!
  23. Thank you for taking these beauties into your care. There are angels everywhere here at Lakeside. See you at the next "Roberto's meeting" .................. G&L
  24. I need to rent or buy a good quality sewing machine for about a month - making new curtains and duvet cover for my home. If anyone has one , please let me know. Thanks
