  1. In my humble opinion the problem in Ajijic is being caused by a few gringo scaremongering posts.. Many people are rushing out to top up their tanks causing some stations to run out of gas.. I did just that, but when I talked to the pump guy he told me "no shortage here" but that was yesterday.. So it seems with the extra holiday traffic and panicking gringos some stations are running out...
  2. Where is the gas shortage.. According to the guys at Pemex on the Conner of Aldama there is no shortage, at 11am today they had lots of gas, both rojo and magna.. And I know this because I was just there filling up...
  3. It wouldn't matter if they did have the right cheese.. Some people just wake up in the morning with negative thoughts in their head... Puttiing a hard working Mexican down without even trying his restaurant is just plain sad.....
  4. If you couldn't saying anything nice why did you have to comment.. You haven't tried the food there.. The owner try's very hard with what he's got. The right cheese is just about impossible to obtain in Mexico.. No doubt the owner ( who is a very gracious host by the way) is glad such a negative person as yourself doesn't frequent his establishment.. I for one will be glad when you go back up north for poutine,, and no doubt you will find something negative to say about that.
  5. Right across from Walmart, a couple of stores from HSBC.
  6. I think there is a lot more to Lizzy's story than she is letting on.. I think she went to the cheapest dentist she could find and when he screwed up she went to Dr Haro to fix it... Well Dr Haro is good but he's not God.. Her posts ramble on.... Is she trying to insinuate that Dr Haro is not an certified dentist.? Im not an expert in implants but I have done some research as I'm thinking of have a couple, I've never heard of acrylic or nylon implants, they seem to be titanium or Zirconia.. Have Used Dr Haro for ten years have never been asked or quoted US dollars..
  7. Has anybody had implants done by a dentist here in Ajijic . Not from a specialist who comes from Guad..? If you have could you please name the dentist
  8. I find that hard to believe that Dr Haro never recommend you go to Guad for a scan if he was doing implants. Dr Haro is just about the most expensive dentist in the area, but he he one of the best. I also find it hard to believe he charged you in US dollars, I have been going to him for 10 years and have never been charged in dollars. Only peso's If you are having an implant I don't think you get an MRI . you get a panoramic scan.. I have had both an MRI on my knee and a scan for an implant. They were different. i must say I admire your courage naming names and using your real name and photo.. It's not something I'm brave enough to do..
  9. You have to have the ORIGINAL ownership paper work for your vehicle, I know this for a fact, a few years ago I forgot to put the originals back in my car, NOB I would keep a photocopy in the glove box and originals at home. My vehicle was refused entry. The official was very nice she even apologized to me, she said to me that if I had the same vehicle I drove in last year she would let me in, but couldnt let my new vehicle in with photocopies. I had to overnight the originals to my hotel in Laredo. You get your refund automatic, no need to ask for a refund. You can pay in cash if you wish, but it's a pain to get your cash back, much easier to use a credit cad. If I recall the fee is listed in US dollars, but on your credit card they transfer it to peso, it was about 300/350 peso. Plus the deposit
  10. Great answer.. All the answers are on the government website, you can also call Service Ontario and they will answer your questions. I'm amazed that people ask for answers on such important questions when it's so easy to get the correct answers from the Gov websites. if you read this board you can see there are about 10 posters who post answers to everything.. Some of them don't even live here..
  11. As usual incorrect information.. You can be out of province (Ontario) 212 days before you are disqualified from OHIP. You must reside in Ontario for 153 days to maintain Your OHIP. As for GIS and OAS you are supposed to notify Rev Canada if you leave the country for an extended time. It is my understanding that you are not entitled to GIS and OAS if you are not residing in the province. As I am not entitled to either I haven't asked Service Ontario for a ruling on them. A couple of years ago the Canadian government along with the US government collaborated on a computer program to notify each other when passport holders left the country, I believe it went live earlier this year. The aim is to crack down on people collecting benefits to which they are not entitled to when out of the country.
  12. Brad... You should not have posted your question on this board. If you look back at the posts of those who replied to you will see one who replied dosent even live in Mexico and posts to just about everything and Quite often posts mis Infomation. The other two are just very negative and as you say snarky people. They don't mention all the gringos here who rent out their casa's, make food to sell at the markets.. and do many other things to make money here.. Are they all leagal and above board....I doubt it...
  13. Only the phone # is listed in the ad, or you can fill out the contact info section. Many of of them do not speak much English and read even less. When going to see any cars I would take someone with you who understands the paper work...
  14. I was hoping someone who is going NOB and has an Jalisco plated car for sale might respond.
  15. That's what I wanted to hear...recommendations .. I've been here ten years so I know the in's and outs of living here.. Don't anything to fancy because just the other cars I've had here it's going get a lot of dings and scratches ..
  16. I'm flexible on the type of vehicle? Could be a small SUV such as a Ford Escape. Or a 4 door sedan such as a Honda Accord or Nissan Altima.. Toyota Corolla Something about 5 to 8 years old..
  17. It appears English may not be your first language, If you take the time to read and understand my post you would have understood that I was asking for recomondations for dealer with an S, not a specific dealer.. I also said I would buy from this dealer if he had the right car at the right price, despite the all the negative reviews about him over the years on this board. More to the point I really don't want to debate this with you... I am asking for recomdations .. That is all...
  18. Thanks I do use that site and I will go to Guad if I can't find anything local. I too am not a big fan of the car dealer everyone raves about as I know someone personally he has ripped off.. Anyone know if there is a specific area of Guad for used car dealers. I am familiar with the weekend market close to Kentucky Fried Chicken.
  19. There are as many negative as positive reports on Spencer, but if he had the car I wanted at the price I wanted to pay I would deal with him...
  20. Any recommendations for used car sales along with phone # email or website address's. Any thoughts on Moyo at the car wash or Franscisco next to Upscale Resale, also the owner of Pranza always seems to have cars for sale there.
  21. From what I understand (but I don't know for sure), the newer generation iPhones such as the 5 & 6 series that use the new IOS do not require "unlocking" to allow you to use a SIM card from any carrier you select. If you purchase a phone from Telcel, Bell Canada, Rogers, ATT&T, Verizion or just about any other carrier the phone will be LOCKED to that carrier, i It doesn't matter if it's an iPhone or an android phone it will still be locked, it's there way of making sure can't just change phone company's when you feel like it. It you want a phone that you can change carriers on you can get them from Best Buy or Staples, Walmart Canada have a limited selection, Or any independent phone store. The best place I have found to get unlocked phone is a store that sells refurbished electronics. In Canada Factory Direct. I have just purchased a refurbished iPhone 5 with a one year warranty for $220. Which I use on the Bell network, when I return to Ajijic in a couple of weeks I will just put my Telcel SIM card in and I'm good to go..
  22. I don't have a phone from Telcel.. I did have a Samsung Galaxy S4 which I purchased in Canada I made sure I purchased an UNLOCKED phone so that when I went back to Mexico I could put my Telcel SIM card in and the phone works on the Telcel network. When I go back to Canada I just take the Telcel SIM out and put my Bell SIM card in and it now works on the Bell network. Usually when you purchase a phone from a carrier you get a cheaper price but the phone is locked to that carrier so you can't change carriers. So if you want to use the Galaxy in Mexico and Canada you will have to make sure you purchase an UNLOCKED phone. Having said all that it is possible to get phones unlocked, it would not be my first choice but it can be done. Also the phone needs to be GSM comparable which I believe the Galaxy phone is.
  23. If the frequency was not 60Hz wouldn't it affect everyone ?. Motors would not run at the correct speed. Anyone with an audio turntable would notice it when they tried to play a record. Electric clocks would not keep the correct time...
