  1. "Wall of Shame' how do I find this Blog, tried typing it , but Nada.
  2. Check your bills in Superlake.....new inexperienced staff; today I was charged 100 pesos over the correct price.
  3. Could someone please write down the directions to this clinic, sorry no Spanish. Thanks Rotary for this generous offer.
  4. You will find Dr.Bea at the Organic Market tomorrow, Tuesday, where she has a table.
  5. Beatriz Gallagher. Try 766-2694 Home phone. or 766-5154. DrBea@DynaNutrition.com www.DynaNutrition.com This information is from a card that is several years old, I don't know if it is still relevant.
  6. When I was in Canada in July, RBC.gave me new Visa cards, as our existing cards were due to expire in a few months. They know we live in Mexico, not a problem.
  7. Portimom. I've left a message for you in the private message section, along with my phone number.
  8. Is there a local clinic/doctor who specializes in detecting Breast cancer, or does one have to travel to Guadalajara for mammographs? Anyone know?
  9. Aquaman could you also give your forecast for the Canadian dollar, thanks. I'm guessing that you're a retired banker, stockbroker, money guy, etc.,
  10. Brian has been doing our taxes for eight years, definitely recommend him.
  11. About a month ago, we returned from the post office to find that the side of our car had been bashed in. We immediately drove to our insurance office only to be told that we needed the information of the driver responsible for the damage before we could make a claim. Of course we couldn't provide it, so paid for the damage ourselves. I naively thought we had "full coverage' should have read the small print?
  12. In answer to the question of how one can help; Last week the hamburger cafe Tipps in Laguna Mall was accepting canned foods, clean clothing, toiletries, etc., and arranging to add them to a convoy of vehicles that would drive as far as Guad. I believe the arrangement was for the donations to be taken to Mexico City from Guadalajara. This may be a one time effort, by Tipps, I'll enquire if they intend to repeat it.
  13. Does anyone know what are the chances of an Earthquake in this area? I know there was an earthquake here many years ago. Also, many Vancouverite's keep an emergency backpack within reach, in the event that there will be some shaking. What would you pack? I was thinking passports, Home Insurance policy (it covers earthquakes) credit card, pesos, dollars, Address book to contact family in case of emergency. But it couldn't happen here, right.
  14. Earthquake felt in Mexico City, extensive damage.
  15. Can I have more than one request please......No more "quaint" so-called cobbled streets, and sidewalks that don't require me to keep my eyes glued to my feet.... too many stumbles and falls, mail delivery to my door, O.K. I could go on, this'll do for now!
  16. We live in a gated community where just about everyone has been burgled, some twice. In every case the suspects have been construction workers who observed our coming and going. In a few incident it's been a maid, although this is mainly petty thieving, bed-linens, kitchen stuff. The guys who painted our complete house walked off with boxes stored in the garage, and from inside the house ...my favourite piece of jewelry. Even treating them to frequent snacks and drinks, is not going to stop them if they are opportunists, I'm not insinuating that all construction workers are untrustworthy, we know some who are honourable people, just beware of the bad apples.
  17. Hi Amanda, may I make a suggestion? One of the best ways to make new friends is through volunteering. You mention your photography hobby, there's also a photography club that meets weekly, or you could mentor seniors who would like to improve their skills. Hope things work out for you.
  18. Chillin...thanks! This is most helpful information, I was able to bring up the list, and bookmark it.
  19. Chillin, useful information, however I've been unable to find the website that you mentioned that lists the "266" conditions covered by Seguro Popular. The websites that came up are in Spanish, I know, I know, my problema.
  20. This might explain why my eyes are watering non-stop, maybe I don't need stronger glasses. We bought an air filter machine in Costco a few weeks ago, I trust, hope, it's doing the job.
  21. Make sure there is no underground water leakage, or you'll be dealing with constant mold and silitre. No matter how attractive a house looks, the hidden construction of the foundation is the most important aspect.
  22. A visiting son set us up with a new Roku installation a few weeks ago. I carefully wrote down how to access the content's of said "magic" box; but guess what, I haven't a clue as how to follow the instructions! So there it sits, a tantalizing little box containing hundreds of movies, etc., and I can't break the damn code..grrr.
  23. I have deleted my post. According to the two individuals who responded, it seems to be too controversial a question.

    I am requesting you to please remind some posters to abide by your rules, and behave in a civil manner, as laid down by your rules. These individuals have responded with personal attacks, so I can see where a perfectly logical question is heading.

    Thank you for all the work that you do,this website has been most helpful to me over the years.q

  24. Just an interesting aside.... it's a well-known fact that the British Royal family use homeopathic remedies for all that ails them. Must be something in it, Queen Liz is nobody's fool.
