  1. and that laws criminalizing abortion are unconstitutional.

    From the New York Times (wasn't a paywall for me) https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/07/world/americas/mexico-supreme-court-decriminalize-abortion.html


    MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that making abortion a crime was unconstitutional, setting a precedent for its legalization nationwide in a conservative Catholic country of about 120 million people.


    Considering a law in the northern state of Coahuila, which mandates up to three years of jail for women who elect to have an abortion, the Supreme Court ruled that any criminal penalization of abortion violated Mexico’s Constitution.


    The decision does not automatically make abortion legal across Mexico, experts said, but it does set a binding precedent for judges across the country. Reproductive rights advocates said they planned to use the ruling to challenge laws in the vast majority of Mexico’s states that mandate either jail time or other penalties for women who choose to have the procedure. Activists also plan to push state authorities to free women currently serving time for getting abortions.

    This is huge.

  2. I could never get the Telmex app to work (but per Natasha, I'll try capitalizing the password). But I found out that you can  pay Telmex bills through the Telcell app - an app I've never had problems with. Works for me.

  3. I used to go to Pablo's until 2 or 3 years ago, and the only reason I stopped was that he got busier and the wait time increased too much (for me).  (Plus, my cars have been running fine and have only needed routine maintenance, which anyone can do.)  He does good work and the prices were fair.  No ripoffs or questionable replacement of parts, etc.

  4. Mark - Are you looking for info/help to take the dog with you to the US, or are you trying to get her to the US for adoption via one of the rescue groups?  As others mentioned, the rescue groups moving dogs to the US for adoption aren't operating right now.  But it shouldn't be a problem to take the dog with you to the US - a matter of getting paperwork regarding vaccinations and vet health checkup.

  5. I have blueprints for my house (in a different frac), and the blueprints are incorrect with regard to the location of the sewage pipes (and don't even show the fosa). I ended up using Jose Martinez to find the blockage and the fosa.  He uses a camera on a cable in the pipes to estimate distance and direction.  Although that may only be moderately useful with a big lot and a long distance to the fosa.

  6. I can't point you to an official answer, but from what I've heard, SIMAPA is not quick to turn off your water for non-payment.  I think you'd have to get a few months behind before they would.  Probably one thing you don't have to worry about right now.

  7. Nelson just wants a good lap to crawl onto, and Naomi is looking for a good squeaky-toy thrower.

    Naomi is about 4 kilos and is inquisitive, playful and fearless.  Nelson is smaller, about 3 kilos, and is mellow and affectionate.  Neither is very barky.  They are 4-5 months old and are black with white on chests and feet.

    They both get along well with other dogs, and I suspect they'd be fine with cats.

    We are in Ajijic.  PM i you'd like to meet them. They can go to different homes.




  8. In  Guadalajara there is a medical equipment supply store that has them (and lots of other stuff). 

    Medilab, at Federalismo Sur #5,

    www.medilabguadalajara.com.mx for the online catalog

    And Lidia at Lakeside Medical has them to rent.  I would rent before buying to make sure the hoist works out for you -- I found it to be very awkward and cumbersome to get the patient onto the sling, and it ended up being easier to make transfers from bed to chair manually - with muscle.  But that won't work if you're moving someone big.
