  1. Sorry , it was last Wednesday . Great videos on Lake Chapala Crime Watch .
  2. I'm sure different people view Ana differently .I have used her for years , always very helpful but her personality is a little "dry "at times but I don't go there for the fellowship . She does get stretched at times trying to answer the phone , help a customer , while a third is trying to ask a "quick" question .She does know her business . By the way she robbed AGAIN last Saturday at gunpoint .

    Min Wah

    Let me give the haters something to get fired up about this morning . We have a lot of good food lakeside , some definitely poor food and even a little really good food .I don't understand why some people have to be so vicious when reviewing a dining experience . Min Wah is a perfect example .I have lived here for nearly 10 years and have eaten at Min Wah many many times during that period and got ONE less than enjoyable meal .Am I the luckiest guy lakeside , did I win the food lottery , I think not . My point is some people use the term inedible , terrible , worst I ever ate etc .Really . The only inedible meal I've had here was a pizza that the meat had gone bad .If you eat somewhere and don't like it why not just say so instead of trying to ruin a business . A simple , I didn't care for it should do and let people try it and decide for themselves . If your post turns people away instead of just giving information you are effecting the lives of the owners and employees and their family . If you don't like a place just don't go , why try to poison others ? There is a well known , long established steak house here that many diners love . My wife and I can't seem to get a decent steak there so we just don't go . I don't try to deter anyone else just because I don't care for it . OK fire away if you feel the need . You know who you are and I'm sure you'll try to justify your nasty reviews before getting off on something completely off topic and attacking your fellow posters .
  4. Yesterday my car a/c went out so I went to EuroFreeze next to Gossips to get it repaired . As I got out of my car I tripped over a broken curb and fell HARD . Before I hit the concrete , Manuel and one of his helpers were there to help me up . Lots of blood , cuts and bruises but nothing broken . Sore as hell today . As soon as I was up and while I was trying to stop the bleeding which is no easy task since I am on blood thinners , Manuel went to the Farmacia next door and came back with bandages and other stuff to treat my wounds . He never hesitated to do this and would not take a single peso although I offered him a nice amount . Needless to say there were a lot of tacos and cokes for Manuel and his men today . Don't feel sorry for my accident because I know I need to be careful when walking in the village but rather concentrate on the great kindness shown by these guys . I am not looking for reviews of their work because that wasn't the important thing in this case .Please give them your business should the need arise . Their phone number is 331 584 5209 .
  5. I can tell you from personal experience that 1.get a second opinion , they love to put stents in down here that may or may not be needed . 2.find another hospital or as Spencer says bring lots of money and have your lawyer on speed dial .PM me for more info if you want.
  6. We are paying our maid full pay til this is over . I do not want her to be riding the bus during this time for all the reasons we know . I assume most of you pay about what we do so it's not a lot of money to us but it is everything to her . She has come to work ill before , nothing serious , and it's not just for her health but ours and everyone she comes in contact with . Our friends and neighbors seem to be doing the same as us . I would have a hard time respecting someone that leaves their help to take care of themselves during this uncertain time . We are working without a net here .We are not wealthy but if we can't afford a few hundred pesos , that we were spending anyway , to help these people , then maybe we shouldn't be here. Disagree if you must but if you do it says a lot about you, not because I say so but because it's the right thing to do. A lot less talk and a lot more positive action . Pay em , you'll sleep better.

    Thanx suegarn I've been hear a long time but for obvious reasons I have avoided posting or responding to posts .I'm still learning , I DON'T have it all figured out. Feel free to help me when you see fit because I am no longer sitting on the sidelines.I'll try to remain civil but it will be hard after a lot of the things I have read over the years. Hope I won't be perceived as one of the mean people and get booted by the mods.

    People like you are the reason I resist posting here. You completely missed the jest of the post . No one was telling you how to do anything just trying to help some deserving kid's out .Glad you think you have it all figured out , such a gift.

    Wife and I had lunch at Elena's today , across from Mel's . It is mexican food , nothing more nothing less.Good food , large portions , I need a nap. Very nice people and cheerful employees .Very attentive service, checked on us often . Many selections on menu .Need to modify a menu selection , no problem. Nice replacement for the departed El Serape . Red sauce is good , green sauce is great with a bite. Plenty of seating inside and out. You may love it or you may not but they deserve a chance to serve you , give them a shot . Remember , if you don't like something doesn't mean it's wrong , just not necessarily for you. Street parking not a problem. Beer and wine available , liquor coming soon, it's mexico. 10to 10 EVERYDAY.
  11. It is with great pleasure I tell you of ANOTHER outstanding Mexican . Last Thursday at Multiva bank ATM I placed my wallet on top of the ATM while completing my transaction and it fell behind the ATM where I could not reach it due to the wooden cover .After the panic subsided I realized that not only could I not reach the wallet , no one else could either except someone from the bank . I knew the bank was closed until Monday so I figured I would just wait until then ,go to the bank and get my wallet back. This didn't keep me from worrying about it .Today at 1:30 my phone rang and it was a man from the security company that services the ATM's .He said to his surprise when he removed the cover to fill the ATM he saw my wallet on the floor .He went thru the wallet, found my phone number and called me .I met him at Multiva in about 30 minutes and he returned my wallet .He asked me to look thru it to make sure everything was there .It was, including 1000 pesos that I keep well hidden for emergencies. I thanked him several times and offered him a reward and he refused , said he was doing his job .He seemed very proud that he was able to return it and save me much grief .Again I offered the reward and again he refused .Finally I had to almost put it in his pocket to get him to take it and even then he seemed uncomfortable . I will not give his name in case he violated some company policy by taking the reward but tomorrow I will tell his company (COMETRA SECURIDAD ) what a great employee they have and I will also go to Multiva and let them know. If you've ever lost a wallet you know how stressful that can be .I know a lot of you would have expected him to keep the money , throw the wallet away and go on his way. Not every person is like that .Right is right no matter the country or nationality. Thank you again my new friend.
  12. I need info please . If you have had a pacemaker installed by a lakeside doctor or one in Guad, what was the price for only the device ?Appreciate it.
  13. I will tell anyone that will listen that they should avoid Dr. Salas and hospital Angeles del carmen at all cost .If you have used either one of them and are satisfied , count yourself lucky.My personal , painful experience is they may be a good hospital and a good Dr. but I saw the worse from both as did several of my friends , two of which are now deceased .They are an expat nightmare .PM me if you want the details but be ready for an account of what happened to me that will seem hard to believe. Do not question the accuracy of my story if you chose not to believe me because it is all in legal documents and proceedings .Good luck in your search and do not let my experience turn you against the mexican health system.
