  1. Thinking I would like an aquarium again. Wondering if a tropical fish store is around locally. Not going to Guadalajara.
  2. Three of us just visited on last Friday. They have just completed remodeling. The spacious and lovely garden area has a grilling patio for weekly BBQs. A hot tub is planned. It is definitely considered an Assisted Living home to almost nursing care. They have single, shared and couple rooms. All felt comfortable and home like with a friendly and caring staff. Small pets are welcomed. When my situation requires a great deal of assistance to enjoy each remaining day, I could be happy there. I hope they want all my plants.
  3. Blood tests before surgery for a blown appendix showed normal magnesium. My Dr. asked why and I said I drank agua mineral with lime juice every day. He agreed that it was probably the reason and recommended that I forever continue. Filtered water takes the bad but also the good.
  4. Only one 7/11 in Riberas. It's west of the side street at the 7/11 on the lakeside several businesses down. Entrance painted lime green. Next door to Vet entrance painted purple with doggy footprints. I try to frequent both to support both families.
  5. The garden shop just west of 7/11 has some large heavy duty black rubber ones with great rolling castors.
  6. Thanks for letting me know. I've been to 5 local nurseries with no luck. I'll try the Cactus viveros. Found them in online nurseries, but ship US and Canada only. No international shipping and I wouldn't trust USPS to deliver before they died anyways. I'm not sure live plants can cross the border. Maybe I can find some baby bromeliads to put in the baskets I collected or onto the wall mounts I expected to use. Anyone know where the orchid nursery Is? I know they can be mounted. I am disappointed. I'll have another glass of wine or go straight to the vodka. Drown my sorrows so they say.
  7. My tree climbing days may be over. Are there any low enough to reach? I have been to two viveros locally with no luck. I will try the ones to the West.
  8. I would like to start a collection of Tillandsias or better known as air plants. Would anyone have some for sale or know of a vivero that has them?
  9. New nursery next door to Johanna’s restaurant in Ajijic. I found several wonderful plants that I haven't seen anywhere else.
  10. Sent to a friend looking for a cat and not a kitten.
  11. Received the deposit into my B of A account this morning by direct deposit. I haven't filed a tax return for the past 8 years.
  12. It's population control. Why do you think it affects the elderly, those with pre existing medical conditions and pregnant women. It's about baby boomers, SS benefits and the depletion of the world's natural resources. How's that for a conspiracy theory?
  13. I boarded my two pups at Furry Friends in Marisol. Very clean and I knew they would be safe and well cared for. Another plus was having them groomed the day I picked them up.
  14. Check out the Penthouse. Delicious meals, friendly sociable people, attentive staff, lovely gardens, nearby bus stop or taxi can pick up. They usually have an Air BnB apt. available. Centrally located between Ajijic and Chapala. Mostly quiet and by the lake.
  15. I recently boarded my two dogs at Furry Friends in Mirasol. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the boarding room and large kennel runs. The dogs are walked twice a day. My main concern is that they are kept safe and secure and in good health on my return. The best part is that I have them groomed on the day I pick them up.
  16. An ultrasound showed an irritation in my dog's bowel. Dr. Berenice said she was most likely sensitive to something in the food. Rather than put Precious through the misery and my expense of experimenting with the different brands and Ingredients, I researched and began making her food. You Tube has many videos. I chose each ingredient for it's nutritional value and health benefit. It's a relief knowing there are no byproducts, dyes, preservatives or anything that isn't fresh and wholesome. The effect was obvious and exciting from almost her first meal. Even her energy went up with her new healthful appearance. Dr. Berenice noticed it and asked for the list of ingredients, making notes and approving each one. I kept a friend's dog for a month and he saw the difference in his dog immediately. He continues to cook for her now. I also get probiotics for dogs shipped to me from Amazon. I don't recommend this if you have several dogs or a large breed. It's expensive and with the addition of another larger pup I'm making it once a week and filling the freezer. But I could never go back to feeding commercial dog food again. You are welcome to PM me for more information.
  17. I sent you a PM. You can also send me one with contact information. No it's not concerning my Precious.
  18. I bought a new recliner yesterday at the furniture store on the corner across from the big fountain at the intersection going into Chapala. I needed one with a wider seat to make my little pup more comfortable. Sorry my leather recliner I gave to the housekeeper so she can put her feet up at the end of the day.
  19. Furry Friends. Grooming and Boarding. It's the house on the east end of the first road entering Marisol. 376 765 5431 I use them for boarding and grooming and highly recommend them.
  20. I would love to go. I am an easy traveler (long distance trucker for 5 years). No demands, healthy bladder, early riser, good listener although I have stories to tell for 3 days easy. I would like to shop at Walmart. Drop me off and pick me up at specified time. If you would want to meet before accepting, I understand. A word to your wife, I've had 5 husbands...been there, done that "No Mas, No Gracias". Looking forward to being "On the road again".
  21. My favorite revenge is to squirt the windshield with dishwashing liquid. Even better if they turn on the wipers to clear it.
