    Yes, why beware of Farmacia Express?

    I have had 2 wrong prescriptions. One was serious, as it was for my stomach and it was a heart medication   I already take a heart med. It was lowering my blood pressure and making me faint.  A friend also got the wrong med and ended up in hospital. It is my understanding that a pharmacy is suppose to have a doctor on staff.

    The doctor was a very old man who just sat in a chair and died about a year ago.

  3. Just a thought, wouldn't it be nice if some of the businesses in Ajijic along the carretera in town could be relocated to that area and then widen that area of carretera.. There are buses that would  go to the new area and I would imagine  better parking.  People are always complaining about the congestion of traffic and parking.

    This way no business will be forced to close to widen the street.  Ok Ok, maybe it was just a dream

    As far as general usage of the term is concerned I'd have to agree with Ned Small on this one, but it does get somewhat pedantic.

    To the best of my knowledge nowhere in the western world is a GP generally referred to as a specialist. The "G" in GP stands for GENERAL practitioner. When the medical problem it is too intricate the GP refers the patient onto a SPECIALIST.

    But as I said, that's general usage.

    But it does seem that the medical bureaucracy recognises a "Specialist General Practitioner". Check out the PDF pointed to in this URL:
    http://www.medicalboard.gov.au/Registration/Types/Specialist-Registration/Medical-Specialties-and-Specialty-Fields.aspx  That's from an Australian Government website but I doubt you'll find much difference in the USA or the UK or any other significantly Western country.

    But after looking at the results of several Google searches it is apparent that for every argument supporting one definition, you can find an equally convincing argument supporting the opposition. Try this on for size: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1495225/

    Personally I'll stick to the position that, in general usage, a GENERAL Practitioner is not a SPECIALIST.

    That is why it is called Generalist....He/'she practices in most areas,contacting a Specialist if needed.

  5. We sold our car and received American dollars. This wasnt' a  problem because we were going to the US. Some of it was used to help others who needed Us money. But there was at least $3,000 USD . It was in a closet in a purse way behind clothes where things going to US were kept kept in a bedroom. If you open the closet door you could not see it.

    No one goes into that room, not even the maid.  We went to get the money and it was all gone except $300.  The only person we can think of is the exterminator.  Another person told us they found the exterminator fellow walking out with a tool chest.   If anyone else has had any experience , please message me with the name of the service. If someone wants to know I will private message,  We are looking for another service.

  6. I have a huge box of electrical, phone, computer wiring. Can this be used for anything?

    Also knew someone who used parts of old printers for making small trains.

    Also have 3 printers.  

    I keep hoping there is someone here who might be able to use these items for something.
