  1. My furbaby passed away recently and I presently cannot get another dog yet as we have upcoming surgery with IMSS but I really miss the walks and cuddling. I would love to take your dogs in my home and give them lots of loving care. I have lived in Villa Nova for about 10 years and can supply a bunch of good references. My name is Ellie and you can reach me at 766 4260.
  2. I know you don't mean Andreas any harm. And yes I didn't want to go into a long story either. But you made it sound like he never showed up for work. I don't blame you because he should have told you when he could have start the job. And yes he had told me the story about the money that he borrowed and the money for the day he worked. This is where the culture difference comes in to play. We gringos think the whole world revolves around us. And Mexicans think everything is family. A person that Andreas has worked for or is going to work for is sponsoring his children for school and wants to remain anonymous. So with his child being sick had then having to register for school and then taking this child to the hospital he was very busy for a few days. I know he would rather be working and making money . And his phone that was soaked by rain is probably still not working. Living here for 15 years I learned how this cultural works and will not change soon. This is where us gringos should step up and show a little bit of compassion and understanding. I look at this man who is trying to keep his family together. When he makes 500 pesos a day 300 goes food and 200 pesos for rent. He has absolutely nothing. (How come I was born so lucky.) Here's a man that willing to work and needs a break. sunnyvmx I wish you lots of luck in finding somebody that meets your standards.
  3. I talked to Andres tonight and told him what I read on this board. He was very upset. It had to do with taken his sick child to the hospital. When he finally got back to the job he was told he was needed. He had left his shirt and cell phone on the job and when it was returned to him it was soaked from the rain. So now he is without a cell phone. All I can say my experience with Andres has been nothing but positive. He is a good guy.
  4. He has a drivers license but I don't think he has a car. He knows Guadalajara well, speaks great English and I believe he would be a very safe driver - give him a call!

  6. Thank you for all the information that has been given. But here what you have to do to have blood donated to your account. Information forms are given out between 6 AM to 7 AM after that no more forms are issued. You do not have to be present. The donors will fill out the form but they need your imss account information from your book. They accept 15 donors at a time until all forms issued are completely. The donor also needs to know your operation date. The blood is only good for 10 days the nurse recommended to donate five or six days before the operation. We were there at 5:30am and my donors were 14th and 15th in line.
  7. Also, he and his wife are donating blood for my husband's upcoming operation! Really nice and trustworthy people!!!! By the way he knows his way around Guadalajara and can drive your car wherever you want to go and translate for you!
  8. We planned to go tomorrow, so I kinda need an answer pretty soon..... Anyone???
  9. My husband needs an operation with IMSS and he needs to bring two people to donate blood for him. Does he need to go to Chapala to get something stamped for permission? Has anyone had any experience with blood donations through IMSS?
  10. I know a hard working man who speaks very good English and really needs the work! His name is Andres and you can call him at 331 752 1759. I have used him for some stuff - he's quite handy. Thank you, Ellie
  11. I agree - he Is a VERY nice man and is desperate for work, he's having a difficult time trying to feed his family (wife and 3 children). Give him a try, you really won't be sorry!
  12. Thank you for your advise but I changed the charger a few times and have the same problem, I'm pretty sure it needs professional help. I googled kindle fire problems and got it to partially charge but doesn't last or fully charge.
  13. Hopefully it only needs a new battery as it will not charge. Anyone know where I can get it fixed??? Thanks!
  14. There is a Mexican gentleman recently here from Florida with 3 children and a wife who lives in Chapala and is looking desperately for any kind of work. He did some work for a neighbor of mine who wrote him a wonderful recommendation. This man has experience as a chef, can do gardening and is a good handyman. I suggest you contact him. Andres - 333 752 1759. I don't believe he has any pets and his English is excellent. Anyone need a translator? He could help!
  15. Youse guys are da bomb! Thank you very much!!!! I actually did go on-line and got the darned thing running again but as it's getting old, I will probably need this advise in the near future. Again, Muchisimo gracias!
  16. Does anyone know of a place or person to get my kindle fire repaired? The battery has refused to charge - it is now dead!
  17. There is a Mexican fellow by the name of Hugo that will help you with the purchase of a use car. Whether from a used car lot or a private owner.

  20. I have used a very nice young lady who has been helping us with IMSS in Chapala and tells me she can help with going to tlamulco (Sp??) She speaks very good English and clearly knows her way around IMSS.. I am going to use her as a translator now for my medical needs instead of taking up all of the offers of help from my wonderful friends and neighbors. This morning she took our papers to the IMSS in Chapala and called us to tell us we had the first appointment with our doctor - What a timesaver!! She can drive and sometimes has access to a car. If you are interested in her services, pm me and I will give you her information.
  21. Actually I was hoping someone had a used one that they would be willing to sell me.
  22. Looking to purchase a dog house for a friend with a blind dog with diabetes. She cannot sleep inside as she urinates quite frequently. Any suggestions?
