  1. Thank you More Liana, that explains it. I’ve lived here for 13 years, never been back to the states, and I’ve never heard of this. I asked many Mexicans yesterday and today, not one of them had heard of it. There has never been a devil in the scene for the last 13 years, this is the first time. I just got back from El Arbol De Café where I talked to the owner about it and he’d never heard of it. Admittedly, things may be different in Ajijic, as I never go there. Anyway this clears it up. Probably made for a good Christmas for a few that were able to rip someone else to make themselves more imp
  2. Driving back from the boat launch on Christmas day, we were stopped in traffic when I looked up and saw "The Devil" staring back at me. Complete with horns and wings. This display is directly outside the door of City Hall in the new median that was just built. People were walking by and not even noticing it. When I started pointing it out, they seemed aghast Directly below the Devil is what appears to be a Padre, but at the Padres feet is a human skull. Can anybody explain this. I'm writing a Letter to the editor of the Guadalajara Reporter. Hopefully, a few of you will also. How could a Dev
  3. Back to the original post Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - On July 4, 2014, the Secretary of Hacienda and Public Credit, the Mexican version of the IRS or Revenue Canada, issued a miscellaneous fiscal resolution that as of September 1, 2014 will affect all buyer and sellers of real estate in Mexico, regardless of their nationality. Without getting into all of the details of the whys and wherefores of these new rules, basically the tax authority has made the determination that in order for the costs involved in real estate transaction that is taking place be tax-deductible in the fut
  4. Yes you do. It's called a CURP. You can get it at City Hall in Chapala. Walk through the lobby, out through the terrace and back as far as you can go, It's free, take your passport and immigration card.
  5. Actually I wasn't holding out any hope for you Blondiegal. Just hoping somebody that reads it, will get it. I posted the link Gringal, which has a great video from The Health Ranger and many links to other info.
  6. http://www.bewellbuzz.com/general/10-reasons-flu-shots-dangerous-flu/ 1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots. A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. Also the shots are only able to protect against certain strains of the virus, which means that if you come into contact with a different strain of virus you will still get the flu. 2.) Medical journals have published thousands of articles revealing that injecting vaccines can act
  7. http://nogreaterjoy.org/articles/youve-got-worms/ “When your body has a healthy, strong, immune system, it can deal with most parasites.” I think we went through this on another thread. Good grief Koko, did your mother tell you this? You want to eat as many of those bacteria as you can. Eat that salsa. Buy eggs covered in poop, at least they weren’t bleached. Buy you meat covered in flies. Eat tons of lettuce rinsed with tap water. Drink raw milk. Stop using a microwave. It’s no wonder everybody’s sick. So off you go to buy your Acidophilus. But wait that’s only one strain. Lets spend more and
  8. Back to the OP's question. The sewer line project is dead (for now). The assessment per household was too much for most families. Then there was the problem of hook-up. Many, maybe most, homes have the septic tanks in the rear of the house and the house goes from wall to wall. No way to bring the line to the front of the house out to the street. Most of the homes would have to be torn down to re-plumb for a sewer line. Fortunately, the powers that be had the foresight to kill a bad idea.
  9. You must have your information wrong. I've been bringing in vitamins, supplements and herbs for years. They always go through customs. I've even had bottles opened by customs but they always get here. Large Corporations like Iherb certainly know the laws and wouldn't advertise shipping to Mexico if it was illegal.
  10. Do they really ship free to Mexico? What was the average time between putting in your order and receiving it? What address did you have to give? (PO Texas box? or ????) Their international shipping has a limit of $80 and a max of 4lbs per order. The shipping charge per order is $4 but they credit back a minimum of 5% per order and often more. Which makes shipping free. There's no limit to the amount of orders. I usually receive the order in 2 to 3 weeks. A couple times I got charged a customs fee, the most was 38 pesos, usually no customs fees. My advice would be to never use the Mailboxes typ
  11. I've found the health food stores here to be very overpriced and low quality. You can buy almost anything you need from http://iherb.com for 30% to 50% off retail, free shipping, and no customs fees (actually I paid 38 pesos a couple of times). In hundreds of orders, I've never not gotten what I ordered. They also have food, herbs, and supplements. Limits of $80 and 4 lbs but so what, place as many orders as you want. Sample: Check it out, they have everything. Now Foods, Mixed Tocopherols Vitamin E, 60 Softgels 240 mg Mixed Tocopherols140 mg Gamma TocopherolSpecifications Shipping Weight: 0.
