  1. Boy, Ferret, you have life by the a-- if you complain about the weather here ! This is truly one of the best climates in the world. Go other places and then you might find a real reason to gripe about the weather. I lived in the DC area for 35 years and we had incredible humidity for 4- 5 months of the year and then get to shovel snow in the winter. Or, live in Buffalo where you have snow off and on for 6 months of the year. If you want to really complain move to the southern U.S. or go to Arizona and Texas in late Spring and summer and deal with hurricanes and tornados. Where have you lived where you have had a better climate or better utility bills for heating or air conditioning ? WOW -- find something to really complain about ! GET A LIFE !
  2. He is also pretty expensive compared to other very good PT's here, at least the two I know of. And not always the case in the saying, "you get what you pay for !"
  3. Basic line of thought is that "all banks and insurance companies SUCK -- they just vary by degrees ! " That said, the use of Medicare here, unless truly treated within the specific time frame of your visit here ( not living here) is fraud ! IT is just a matter of time before the US catches up with these practices. I am surprised they have not been already caught. Unfortunately, these current practices artificially drive up the medical costs here. Your best bet is to pay for medical out of pocket ( savings). Unfortunately, everything here is catching up to the US in terms of cost of living, including cost of medical care.
  4. She is not a podiatrist, but if you only want something maybe orthotics would help, I recommend Lilliana at Ortopedia on 367 Degollado in Chapala. I find her to be very knowledgable and did a great job on my orthotics. She opens up at 9:30 and is at 376-765-2610. Depends on what your foot problem is.
  5. Dra Justina because if your body is weak from post-surgery or other things, Jorge may be way too strenuous on you ! I know because I have used both for long periods. Dra Justina also will have a limit on how long she treats you !
  6. OK, back to the principal question, where are the most reasonably priced places these days to purchase KN-95 masks for an upcoming airline flight? Thanks.
  7. Have you tried Meditteraneo in Riberas? Not sure if they deliver but have fantastic pizzas. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays. 376-688-1181.
  8. The number of Mexican drivers would obviously go way up on weekends because of all the Tapatios viewing lakeside as its playground ! They are also buying some of the high priced real estate out here.
  9. Anyone get a wind speed for those gusts ?
  10. I have said for about the past 5 or 6 yrs that you can hardly tell when the snowbirds arrive or leave because traffic is permanently bad now that Ajijic has been found by babyboomers from the north. It is not about the local governments tying things in knots, as Mainecoons claims. IT is the shear number or volume of traffic and people now living in the Lakeside area. You cannot blame the government when we have no real room for infrastructure improvement when the carretera is between the lake and the mountains. Tough situation. I feel sorry for many of the poor Mexicans who cannot afford the price of gasoline. We gringos are to blame for the traffic gridlock.
  11. Thanks for checking. When it comes to determining what or who is overweight, I don't have a clue. Maybe I should ask Maria there.
  12. Hmmm --Gringohombre, I wonder why we are being charged $563 a year for a medium box and you are only being charged $384 a year for your medium box. Any thoughts ? Thanks.
