  1. This was definitely worth logging in for🥰 Thanks so much!
  2. Panchos definitely have them. The ones at Costco here seem like they need to be baked longer:/
  3. Not really into country or Johnny usually but I love this🙂 Saw 9 Inch Nails once....didn't think I would enjoy it so much but they were seriously fabulous and I have been a big fan ever since:-)
  4. According to my night sky app they should appear basically overhead here at our lakeside location and around the Leo and Leo minor constellations. Best time to view is supposed to be from midnight to 4AM on Sun, Mon. Lots of night light around here but it is a new moon so at least that won't be working against you:-) If you are a star gazer the Night Sky app for your phone is really great:-)
  5. We are interested. I know you get mail there but can you send mail to the US from there as well? If so we are in and would love to share a box with you!
  6. I loved the drive using the Mascota highway but my husband hated it:/ The brakes on our Ram 3/4 diesel pickup over heated and we had to sit for a while to let them cool off. Still so much better drive than the craziness it is currently the other way:/
  7. I have been looking for a hatchet to split small wood for my wood fired pizza oven with no results yet either:/ I also checked the new Home Depot with no luck. Anyone know of anyplace here for one?
  8. I injured my left knee while providing my moms end of life care in June and it was causing me a great deal of grief so I went to an orthopedic physician in Oregon. My insurance was not the best so they proposed first a steroid injection in my knee, then if that didn't work a hyaluronic acid injection. If that didn't work the insurance would pay for an MRI. I decided to wait until I was back in Mexico to deal with it on my own at my own expense. I went to Dr. Gabriel Martinez Sandoval who is at Quality Care on Wednesdays. He had more xrays taken and gave me a referral for an MRI in Guadal
  9. The lab I had my MRI done in gave me a DVD with the full scan on it as well as 171 separate images so a US Dr. would easily be able to use them. They did have numerous English speaking technicians and receptionists there as well just as an FYI.
  10. Well.....since the OP is in the US, will be visiting the area for one week, mentioned the out of pocket expense they would have to pay in US dollars in the US, it seemed that giving them the figure in US dollars might be helpful. Perhaps you could have converted it for them if you take issue with it.....gosh really!
  11. I had an MRI of my knee 2 weeks ago......obviously a totally different MRI......but the cost was $240 US at a lab in Guadalajara and they have the 3.0 tesla magnetic field set up. I am sorry but I don't know the expense for the MRI of the inner ear. If you find the doctor you want to see they will be able to tell you the cost of that specific procedure I am sure.
  12. The only info I have is that I went to Sandra's office and said I needed internet. At the time when we first moved here I thought it was "the" TelCel office which of course it was not. She and her husband have a small office and they live behind it. I did not see a flyer or anything. I pay her directly and I pay in advance a few months so I don't have to worry about it. I write it on my calendar and note when I have to pay again. I don't have to wait at the big TelCel office ever. I bought my neighbors daughter an Iphone 8 last week from her even. That really is all I know but you can call her
  13. I have been using TelCel's wireless modem or router...what ever it is, for about 7 months. It is better than no internet and most of the time I can stream netflix or hulu or Amazonprime video but occasionally in the evenings it is too slow to stream. I use it with a NordVPN that comes with my Norton antivirus package. I got mine from Sandra at the small TelCel office just west of El Torrito and occasionally I have to call her to do some sort of reset and then I am good to go again. She is very nice about it.....I only call her during business hours if it is not working but she says I can call
  14. Some representatives of the foodbank were at the organic market on Tuesday accepting donations and we donated, grateful for their wonderful work. We have adopted a few different families here.....or maybe I should say they adopted us because they sure are wonderful to us.....and we help them with food, cash when necessary and we pay for one families oldest daughters accounting school classes and books. We are not wealthy and basically live off of our SSI and a small pension but compared to the average Mexican person here we are very well off. Those of us on fixed incomes here have not been ser
