  1. That is a great way to approach that, since my experience with the staff there last February was horrible. They made me go back home twice, since my phone bill said I had 4 pages to it, when only 3 existed, did not even have a blank page to count as page 4. I am sure use of Luis can avoid some staff attitudes like that.
  2. PharmaLife is a great generic manufacturer, offered in several different meds at GDL Farmacia. When I first arrived here 10 yrs ago, I was cautioned by a few people not to buy from Similares because the rap back then was that similaries are not equivalent to patented drugs, as generics are supposed to be. So, are the above references saying that similaries are equivalent to brand names, as generics are supposed to be? I know --when in doubt, always read the label prior to buying !!
  3. Looks like it was a one day glitch. Ironically, the next day program guide had all those programs listed that appeared the day before, but the stock coverage returned as it had appeared previously. Glad it came back normally.
  4. You can request for a correction but only if you have a copy of the document to send as proof. Our problem is they collected our original at the time we received our second vaccine. Since we did not have a download of the first original we are out of luck. They don't cut you any slack because they collect the first original vaccine document from you, whether or not that was their intention. Hope the world does not implement a vaccine passport or we will be stuck here.
  5. Most have covered this already. First, on taxes, the Mexican Federal Govt gets it share taken directly from your investment, I think monthly. The tax rate was was almost 1.5% but is lower this year to just below 1 % ( .96%). Second, some of your higher return funds can be risky. I remember having a 4 yr bond with Multiva. However, lost the entire investment when the entity holding the bond went belly up. They were a premier housing corporation for govt housing and then Nieto decided to change housing policy and as a direct result, they went bankrupt. So, beware of attractive returns -- they have risks. I have had good experience with one year notes with Multiva. Now, they are getting between 3.5 - 4%, after taxes are taken. Talk to Juan in the Casa de Bolsa side. If you want to do stock market fund type investments, they are available with them, but again come with risk.
  6. Since we have been without power from 8:30 last night until 3:30 this afternoon, took advantage of their delivery service to order a vegetarian pizza from Pizza 2 Go Go and the pizza and service were just GREAT ! Josue, the owner, formerly of Perry's and partner in M&J Pizza, said when I was ordering that they could use more business due mostly to the pandemic. So, please utilize and patronize a very good pizzeria !!! We need to keep them in business now more than ever !! Thanks.
  7. Gracias.. Connected with him and he will have them back to me tomorrow, ( Lunes).
  8. That is Lety's cellphone, who is the desk/ office manager there. They have had landline problems since they moved there. Lety is very good, despite this stressful situation ! They also give out out a second number for her assistant, Beth. That number is 332-050, 4009. However, I don't know how good her English is.
  9. Thanks for all your replies. I got a hold of the juice guy at Guad Farmacia today and he showed me that he is now in a little white bodega at the far east side of the strip where Multiva is located. Just a white metal doors by the side where the food trucks, etc. are. He tried to say bodega to me by Dona's Donuts but I could not comprehend what he was saying. So gracias to the juice man for clarifying it for me. Connected with Carlos at the bodega and hope to show him the chairs tomorrow.
  10. Hi: Spoke once with Carlos, who used to hang out on the corner by Guad Farmacia, but could not find him there or across the street near Dona's Donuts where he said he was. Anyone know where to find him or somewhere else I can have them done? Thanks
  11. Their cell phone number is 331-438-4969, listed on Facebook.
  12. That is a contradiction of terms here: Noise enforcement !! Mexico loves its noise !!!!!
  13. UGH, we are not talking about M&J 's schedule. We are talking about Pizza 2 Go Go !! I thought I read that Pizza 2 Go Go is open 2-9 pm Tues- Sat. I like Josh, think he pronounced his name: Josue? --first met him when he worked at Perry's, before he opened M&J Pizza. He is a good man. Thanks.
  14. If you want great Italian sausage, but in a casing, go to Tony's Meat Market in SAT, just west of Super Lake. Tastes like the good stuff in the States ! Also a bargain at 100 p per kilo.
  15. Thanks so much !! Sounds like they are definitely worth a try !
  16. Located in Plaza Bugambillas on the Second Floor, over El Torito. How is it, for those that have tried it?
  17. Noise restrictions? What a joke !!!!!! Unfortunately, it is part of the culture here !
  18. I appreciate the one useful response. My answer to that one is that the contractor I mentioned was one of the window shop guys located on the carretera !
  19. Thanks, but the roof is too high for these to be installed and be effective. Again, being on the second floor, when the storms blow directly from the east, nothing overhead would stop the water from coming in.
  20. We are getting prepared for rainy season and have had progressively worsening leaking windows in our second story front bedroom window facing the lake. We have large windows facing both East and Southern directions ! We are entering our fourth rainy season with this problem. In addition to being on the second floor, the largest windows are over a pool -- prohibiting a ladder or scaffold to be used on the outside. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding who could repair such a problem? We have had one window replaced, but contractor was not much help on the others. Thank you !
  21. CanSino is designed to be similar to Johnson and Johnson's vaccine makeup, which also requires only one shot. Do not know that much CanSino, whether or not it has had any of J&J's problems for women from 18-50. IT would have been much easier for administration and patients if we had had access to one shot regimen here in Ajijic and Chapala. Those who who drove into Guad or elsewhere to successfully get the Pfizer vaccine were very fortunate. I hope the boosters next year are available in the private medical sector, who can manage things much more easily than the Federal Government here.
  22. Pete, Be careful to make exact copies and if your Tel-Mex bill you are using says 4 pages at the top, you better have all 4 pages. They seem to take pleasure in rejecting you for not having exact pages of your copies, along with the required originals. The were very nasty to me and the experience was awful, even though I thought I was pretty prepared. It would be nice if they just accepted your expiring license and simply renewed it. The easiest part was getting the appointment online. Also, I speak Spanish but found all the clerks there to be difficult to understand. And, although one post said the person in the side copy room speaks English, I did not find anyone there who spoke English. Buena Suerte !
  23. What do they serve, all Mexican menu? What style, from different regions? I miss El Serape !! Thanks.
  24. Doctors at Ajijic site stressed to wait 20 days after first injection to have alcohol. I will go with the doctors' opinion. Why would they make it up? This may be very well only applicable to Sinovac.
  25. Took mine back to Katya and got about 135 pesos for my three. Trouble was finding their new location, somewhere off Pepe Guizar. Address is: Lirios 57. Colonia Las Redes. Call them for directions at 765-3999. No longer located behind the Chapala Mercado in the plaza. Why set them on the street when they are worth money ?? !!
