  1. Thanks for sharing, Pedro. I wish you the best during your final years.
  2. I'm glad you have internet, say I, Pete, up here in Seattle for my annual spring visit, waiting for the rainy season to start before returning.
  3. I flew to the US last Tuesday and had no problems because I used Laboratorio Clinica Epsilon. I was never asked for a QR code, whatever that is. . ..
  4. Yep, I too went to the Laboratorio Clinica Epsilon and the price was only $200 pesos and I had to wait some 25 minutes until I got my results. And for you old timers who remember where Lagunanet's office was. It's in the same building, but on the first floor.
  5. You should check out some of the more popular the lakeside Facebook accounts. Some of them talk about you in great detail. You might want to go there and depend yourself against some of the not so nice comments. Oh there are nice comments too.
  6. Thanks for the post, Frijoles. Those are the numbers I would use, if I only had Telmex and not a internet US or Canadian number down here. The problem is, and it is a small one, the problem is that Telmex charges its Telmex customers long distance when dialing up north this way.
  7. All I know is that when phoning a telephone number in the US or Canada using Telmex, that I simply dial 001 followed by the 3 digit area code, followed by the 7 digit local number. The only problem with this system is that it only works with standard numbers, but does not work when trying to phone one of those toll free 800 numbers. So, it is easy phoning friends who have a standard number up north, but does not work when trying to phone a toll free number up north.
  8. I build my first satellite dish for TV in 1986. In those days my 10 foot dish came in kit form and I had to build the darn thing. And I have been getting most of my TV via satellite ever since. Up north, our condo provides DirecTV, Down here the best provider is Shaw Direct. Yes I stream, but most of my TV comes via one of my satellite dishes, here lakeside.
  9. Good for you. That is great speed. All I have is Telmex. Luckily I only live a few blocks from Telmex and the telephone lines are OK so I get up to 45 Mb/sec down by about 2 up with a ping of close to 17 . It aint as fast, but the price is right, less than $500 pesos per month
  10. Well, I choose to follow the advice of my US and lakeside doctors. And they all say the same thing. Get your darn shots and stop looking for excuses not to. What type of shot? The first two were Pfizer shots and the first booster was Moderna. I don't get my second booster until I'm up north of the 11th of May and will take the shot then recommended by my Doctor when I get there.
  11. My full time gardener of many years makes $63.75 pesos per hour. $240 pesos or about $12 US per hour to walk a dog seems way out of line.
  12. I couldn't agree more . 😒 . .🤐
  13. YES iNFINITUM is down again. It has been happening quite a bit lately at my home in upper Ajijic, at the top of Calle Juarez. Thank goodness I have kept the cable company as a backup.
  14. Although I find what Doctor Haro and/or his staff charges to be very high, I do like their work; very high quality.
  15. They took a two week Easter Vacation. If I remember correctly, the next issue comes out at the end of this weekl Sure hope I'm correct. I miss the publication
  16. I built in kit form, my first satellite dish in 1986 and have been watching satellite TV ever since. And I only stream, when I have to. I also have DirecTV up north and down here, DirecTV is not a good choice for down here, because so few stations make it this far south. But I have it up north at my condo in Seattle, so I have an extra receiver down here. Streaming is OK, but takes a little longer, when going from channel to channel to channel, when looking for whatever
  17. My Shaw Direct Satellite system just went dead, I sure hope it's just me and that the old satellite didn't just die. I know it was getting old but I didn't know how old EDIT: It must have been just me. Because it's working again
  18. I thought it was only legal to smoke weed here, if you had a doctor's RX. Am I wrong?
  19. There is a third option, Sol Y Luna which is located in Ajijic, 1/2 a block south of Scallions Restaurant. I have used them for years, because of the convenience of their location and where I often go for breakfast, Scallions. Sorry, I do not remember what they charge, but it is much less than Ishop.
  20. I've been hearing them for several days now in upper Ajijic.
  21. We miss you Captain Naselli. Wish you the best up there in Florida
  22. Where is the fire? I live in upper Ajijic at the top of Juarez and I can't see any fire
  23. In upper Ajijic, at the top of Juarez, it started going on and off somewhat later, more like 6 or 7PM
  24. What's a moving blanket? I don't think I have ever heard that term used before.
