  1. I have found myself without cash lots of times and I have a lot of trouble with coins because of the condition of my hands. I usually tip way more than 20 pesos and also because of that thing with my hands I dump the change given by the cashier right on the counter. Have only had smiles and a few pats from the elders bagging groceries. I'm going to remember the chocolate bar or... idea. Thanks.
  2. Sometimes very difficult if you have no cash and the ATMs are sold out. Not all that rare. A candy bar beats nothing right?
  3. I have used Hitman Pro anti-virus successfully to remove some previous infections. It does not take a lot of space on your computer and constantly updates its base. I'm still mourning the passing of XP pro operating system. I do interface of high end microscopy and 24 RAM computer and nothing was better. I tried MS 10 but had to revert to 7 because 10 had too many dumbed down operations.
  4. I just saw Dr Juan Garrido in GDL (puerta de hierro sur hospital) who told me I have cataracts. He prescribed multifocal eye glasses to try forestalling surgery for a while. I have never worn glasses. They cost 12,000 pesos [ouch] He said the surgery would be 25,000 pesos per eye but did not say what sort of lens. Any feedback will be appreciated.
  5. Pea gravel was mentioned in the thread. Does anyone know of a bulk source?
  6. I'll second Winston. Excellent service.
  7. As Vista said, probably no drain trap or food stuck in there.
  8. I paid about 20k usd for a complex hip replacement in Mexico city [2 years back] with one of the best hip/orthopedic surgeons in the world. The cost included flight from Vancouver, 20 days in hospital private room, physiotherapy twice daily, custom meals, topnotch nursing care.
  9. My dog also scratches a bit much and it varies with what I feed her somewhat. Speaking of fleas and vets. Is there a vet who sells Revolution flea-tick-heartworm skin applied medication for 10 pound size dogs? Last time I bought it I had to get over size and dispense half, which was difficult. Also, is there a decent vet, who actually examines the dog during a visit? Vitals, teeth, etc?
  10. I just also sent him Gustavo's # by PM. Great spot.
  11. Except that it is a roast. One good thing about Gerard's is the atmosphere, IMO - good vibes. I'm not sure whether the mushroom with tomatoes and cheese is still available but it was excellent. I really like the spinach lasagna and the regular salad is good and filling. It is the only good salad I've had yet in the area. [not that I've been all over] There may be some confusion over the aging of the prime rib. It is likely cut from already aged beef. We killed a steer back in Canada and hung for about 1 month...delicious; big difference if aged.
  12. Yeah okay. It was reading the tutorial which sparked my question. Very poorly written.
