  1. We have an exterior fountain set in the middle of an 8x4 foot pond..one foot deep. I thought it'd be nice to have some aquatic plants and flowers in the water. Can anyone offer suggestions as to what type of plants would be appropriate, and where I might source them? Thanks, Eric
  2. I found a link to a company (Vuelo Aventura) that offers ultralight flights on the carreterra Guadalajara/Jocotepec/Chapala but was unable to find the address on google Earth. Is this business still operational? Has anyone had experience taking a flight with them? Here's the link: https://www.yumping.com.mx/ultraligeros/vuelo-aventura--e19692827#app-layer-multisolicitud
  3. Across the street from us is a house that rents to weekenders from Guad that sometimes play loud music late into the night. Initially I was pretty bothered, but soon realized that there was nothing I could do to effect any change...that I was going to have to change my perspective or plan to be angry for a very long time. For the sake of my sanity, I now take the view that everyone has a right to celebrate joyously and I have no right to expect the world to conform to me. And when it's my turn to celebrate, or cut timber, or blow up the biggest, loudest fireworks that I can afford, I'll do so unencumbered by guilt but maybe with a little schadenfreud. The minute that I acknowledged their right to live unmolested, I was no longer angry and the music, though loud, wasn't accompanied by feelings of outrage and devious plots of revenge. A perceived violation of my "rights" was transformed from a life-altering event to a minor inconvenience. It's wonderful here now. Eric
  4. It interesting that for the past few days I've been exploring the requirements for obtaining a license to fly ultralight aircraft in Mx. I was thrilled to see an orange winged, single prop plane fly over my house in west Ajijic and hoped it would come back so I could get another look! He appeared to be flying at a couple hundred feet. What a beautiful sight!
  5. I regret that I sleep like a rock and miss most of the really good storms, but the night of this storm there was a clap of thunder so loud that I was certain lightening had struck directly outside our bedroom window. Scared the crap out of us! Five minutes later I was fast asleep.
  6. In Chapala, behind Soriana, four or five houses off Pepe Guizar and near the OXXO, is a feed store. Alfalfa, duck food, chicken food, dog and cat food, rostrojo, whole or split corn, salt blocks etc etc. I'm sorry I don't have a name or address, maybe someone else can provide that.
  7. UFC 202 is going to have a fantastic lineup and I really really want to see Brock Lesnar fight again. Are there going to be any venues showing this fight on August 20? Eric
  8. It has been lightly raining for a couple of hours here in La Cristina. Not much wind, only distant slow rolling thunder. I figure we must have caught the very edge of the storm. I don't own a TV but Internet service has been fine. Eric
  9. Whoa! $180 pesos doesn't even get you a hot dog?
  10. I thought VA payments were all direct deposit now? Mine shows up on the first of each month like clockwork. This is my first time hearing that social security needs to be informed when leaving the country for extended periods. I don't know why that would be the case since ssdi payments aren't affected by your physical location. Eric
  11. ROFL! I just woke up and this is the first thing I read. I'm still laughing! What a great way to start the day, thank you! Hahaha! Eric
  12. If you research Rapamycin you'll find that the anti-aging claims are backed by some pretty sound science. Definitely not snake oil. There are some very promising anti-aging therapies in the pipeline such as telomere lengthening and various senolytics, in addition to organ regeneration via stem cells and crispr gene editing therapies that have the potential to add a significant number of years of life. Life extension technology is increasing at an exponential rate and even we older folks will be able to benefit should we choose to be early adopters. If Rapamycin has even a fair chance of adding 5 or 10 years to my life with tolerable side effects then I'll take it. I've got only one life to live and I intend to drag it out it out as long as possible.
