  1. We got a large collection of books delivered to us and will be adding more each week. These are mostly mysteries, health and fitness subjects, but there is a little of everything. Come check them out at our Thursday market (10-1pm) or on another day. Our market has health products, jewlery, cds and homemade foods, honey, salmon....Parroquia #12A on the Ajijic plaza.
  2. Its called schadenfreud, taking pleasure in the misfortunes of others and something rarely done by nice people....and since when are folks on the other board our "enemies"? Even if some of them exhibit the attitude you dislike, becoming like them is not a positive attribute.
  3. Tom Kessler your messages are blocked! Last night our computer went down for 3 hours when Ilox was saying we had an excellent connection with 150mbps,but suddenly at around 6pm we couldn't get anything! We tried to call the Ilox office but it didn't ring and eventually had a busy signal. So our phone doesn't work when the system is down...Today the strength is low and is intermittent in the house--our modem is in the casita within line of sight of the modem and usually works okay, like right now. All diagnostics indicate that it is the problem of the DNS, Ilox. Any reason for this spotty service? Anything we can do if this reoccurs? Is there any tech support after 5pm? We changed over from Telmex to avoid such incidents....
  4. when did you get a black plague vaccine? And small pox was a scratch on the skin, not an injection. It was last given in 1969...The scientific methods that we so revered have been sold out to the highest bidder and statistical analysis has become the butt of"lies, half lies and statistics". We don't contract illness from belief in it or not but by our daily habits and care.
  5. I second this recommendation. She even does house calls.
  6. Why do you insist that anti-vax people isolate themselves? If you are so certain that vaccines protect you then you should say "that's their business". There are thousands of virus and bacteria around us at all times that there are no vaccines for ,we are swimming in a sea of germs. the only protection is a healthy immune system and we believe that vaccines undermine a healthy system. And who knows what else is in the vaccines as we know our government and medical authorities have been known to do things secretly "for your own good". There is a vaccine court that handles bad outcomes from vaccines and they hand out $$$. They weren't around when my Dad was paralysed for 2 years after a flu shot in 1977...
  7. Wrong. Cookj5 went north behind our mountains to have a look. To get there you must go west to Jocotepec to 15 and north to the road to Los Potrillos and Las Trojes, not south towards San Luis,etc Our friends in Las Trojes said they hadn't seen smoke or fire so it must be east of them and west of Izla. The ugly road is off the Librimento snaking up the hill ...
  8. I think Mudgirl has the right idea. Polio dropped by 85% in England and France who didn't vaccinate. The virus had mutated to a form that didn't cause paralysis. The first vaccine for polio was defective and caused 30,000 new cases. Dr. Wakefield studied gastric problems and noted a correlation between autism and the gastric biome. His work was too close to the truth and so he was vilified...
  9. The only vaccine i ever had were the original polio when I was 4 and the small pox when i went to college. I think the whole model for vaccines is wrong and Louis Pasteur repudiated his own work at the end of his life. There's an interesting pdf file on the internet entitled "Beauchamp vs Pasteur" written in 1923 that outlines the whole conflict of ideas on the origins of disease. Anton Beauchamp said that it was the Territory of the body , not the germs which were there for everybody. Pasteur insisted that there was a specific germ for every disease that had to be identified and killed. Pasteur was backed by the moneymen--the Boneparts--and so here we are. Many people connect the start of vaccines with homeopathy, but they aren't alike. Homeopathy uses the normal paths of infection and microdoses to stimulate your own immune system while vaccines are done through the bloodstream. I find it interesting that many of the really bad diseases of our childhood like dipheria, scarlet fever and rhumatic fever don't have a vaccine or any recent cases. At this time there are more deaths from measle vaccine(500) than from measles.
  10. Thanks, Mainecoons. My husband had this for 6 months, as soon as I would bring his dinner to him he would sneeze and have a runny nose. Fortunately this symptom has disappeared,but who knows why. I tend to get it at breakfast time. Sorry this person is so freaked out about nose blowing at the table,but I remember a date (many many years ago) who took me home to meet his folks for dinner. He cautioned me against clearing my throat or coughing during the meal as his Mother would be upset because she witnessed someone choke to death at dinner when she was a child....sometimes people are stuck at some level of development emotionally and we have to live with it---or not.
  11. Its #101, half block from the Plaza Bugamvillas garage. Its is a white building with white wrought iron grill on front.
  12. If you don't have the proper minerals your heart may beat irregularly. There are at least 2 things going on when you talk about heart attack/ cardiac arrest. Heart attack usually means a blockage in the arteries supplying blood and cardiac arrest is an electrical problem that may be caused by imbalance in minerals/salts. Family history is not fate. It only means a family tendency on how your body handles the nutrients that come into your body. If you can understand your heredity you can work with what you have. Like with cholesteral, there are 3 body types--One makes less cholesteral in response to eaten fats, one shuttles the fats through the body quickly and another body type continues to make cholesteral regardless of how much is eaten. Obviously if you have the third kind you must watch what you eat, but for others it is not a problem. There is no one-size-fits-all for cholesteral levels, some families have naturally high levels with no heart disease.
  13. Now our main phone doesn't work ,only the one in the casita that runs through the modem. Weren't they supposed to work through the houses electrical system? Also having some difficulty getting good reception in the house.... what to do?
  14. We are prepaid and we received our hook up last week. After a bit of a mix up as to our address, we are on a privada in Ajijic centro, the installation went fairly quickly. It took 3 hours and it required putting the line in over our house into the casita where we use it the most. The young man worked without a break and tested the system out before leaving. We are getting 150mpbs and are happy with the casita setup, but now have to figure out how to get good reception in the casa. Working on line of sight from there...
