  1. Come a little east to LaCanacinta and see the squatter fishing village. They use to stay a few weeks but this time it is several months. It isn't noisy but more a matter of hygiene. The area is full of clutter and I don't what to know what they use for a bano. Environmentally they are placing very wide area nets and capturing little fish that have not had a chance to mature. So soon we will see the lake depleted again.
  2. Has anyone had a MRI of the brain, here ? And what was the cost?
  3. I agree and they have nicer styles now and just as good on cobblestones
  4. If this is the marble place run by a person named Rudy.  I wish they would give me the same service.  My marble came from them.  They returned once

    and within a few months , it was marked up like you put acid on it. This is a bathroom counter and sink.  It is corroding in places that never come in contact with anything.  Hope you have better luck.

  5. If you look in dictionary they are synonyms.
  6. While we are on the topic, our car was very badly damaged from my trying to avoid hitting a parked car on the left, that I hit one on the right. Anyway had to be fixed, whole side of my car scratched . It would be hard to tell what I did to the other car because it really was a JUNKER. Anyway took the car to a body shop with terrible results and now it will have to be redone, Side of car is all orange peal, many scratches on side and under passenger handle. No one used the passenger side. I have had the car 2 weeks.
  7. Ok. 1. He proposed a new way to control selitro (sp). You know the bubbling of the cement, very common.  He had someone drill holes in the bottom of the affected walls.  They hit pipes @x but did fix them. It was hard to know where pipes were.

    2.  Ok. so now I have walls full of holes along the bottom. Then squirted some white gunk which supposedly would spread inside and stop water from coming up into the wall.

    3. So now I have white holes and he had someone paint over them. BUT did not use the right paint, I labeled the paint very clearly " inside paint" So the 2 walls have an uneven darker stripe on the bottom. Tried to paint over it and won't disappear.  I even went to paint store to get dark cover up. I really not sure they knew what I wanted but couldn't paint over the primer.  Nothing seems to cover it.  I believe they used outside paint/

    4  Called him about this and he said paint would dry in several weeks, then changed and said months and it would fade.  Seriously!!!

    5. Half of the bedroom needed to be repainted from an old roof leak.

    They painted the other side as well and didn't ask but charged.

    Now I cannot prove this but....I sold my car and was given USD cash.

    It was exactly $4,800.  Wrapped in bank wrappers.  The day we got it I put it in a black bag behind where my pants were hung. There was 4,800. Someone was going to States and asked for the USD . So we worked it out and when ready to count it out, 3 of the wrapped 100 USD were short. One 200  and 300 to a total of 1,100 USD,  Nope no proof but no one goes into that closet, not even the maid.  The only person was the painter.


    So that it my story  BTW  don't EVER leave money, even locked in your car getting garage work.  I forgot that I locked up some emergency money in the glove compartment.  Yup...got car back, glove compartment open $3,000p gone.   and lastly just cancelled my insurance and needed surgery...  This has not been a financially a good year so far



  8. Thanks but all taken care of!!!!
  9. Thank you, but I got one . I send my college grandson funny things in the mail and a $5.00/ mo.   I am good now since school will be out in June.

  10. This may sound a little unusual but I need the change for $100 USD change for USD money. No Pesos involved. I need at least 2 (5's) 2 (10's) and the rest doesn't matter. Can PM me back.
  11. I had granite counters installed in the kitchen when the house was renovated 2008. No problems just make sure it is sealed.  Now the bathroom is a whole different story. Twice we had marble and it is a mess again. Yes very porous . I even kept a towel over it and still marked up.  I wondered why you could have marble floors and no problem.  I have to conclude it was Rudi.  So I would be careful.

  12. Despite the association with scorpions, Mecoptera are all quite harmless and do not sting. This from a google search.
  13. Not really. The rat we caught in the bodega was a hefty size and those look like the turds. Perhaps it got bigger eating the dog food stored there
  14. Yes garter....and me from the Garden state!!!!!
  15. probably a rat. They look like the ones we found in our Bodega. It was a rat.
  16. I also live in La Canacinta and agree with the above, although I live down the street, closer to the water.
  17. Dr Vanenzuela is a surgeon. If you don't need surgery he will probably recommend Dr. Breseno, the brother of the cardiologist at Quality Care. I am having surgery next week so back with Dr. V . I think he is one of the best. Takes time and explains everything ( even if you don't get it at first) Very patient and knowledgeable. If I were trip adviser, I'd give him 5 stars!
  18. I also tried to pm you just now , still unable. Try to pm me and we can see if I can reply
  19. Bravo to Bravo Theater production. This was opening night for the play Mr.Green which was a big hit. Audience applauded every scene enthusiastically.We loved it and encourage those who can to go.
