  1. Ooma - you buy the device and program your phone number. Monthly charges around $7 USD. Works like a dream. Great sound quality, and the machine is also an answering machine so you can hear your missed calls.
  2. That happened a few years ago in the Raquet Club. Water built up in the hills and one early evening it let loose, was not raining and I know someone who went out to move his car inside his cochera and he got washed down the street. Police and several by standers helped him out of the water and got him back home.
  3. It pays to shop around for MRIs. I believe the new Hospital San Antonio can do MRIs now, please correct me if I'm wrong. I have had several in Guadalajara and at the time I had Mx medical insurance. So I called several on the list to get the price. Prices varried greatly. And if you have a DIF or INAPAM card you get a 20% discount. Last one was at a imaging clinic near Hospital Del Carmen. When I called they told me they were having a sale on MRIs. Yes a sale! Their price was the best and I had been sent there previously by a doctor. So shop around. I have found that Tolsa and Rios are the most expensive for MRIs. Why does your doctor send you there? Many doctors get a "cut" of the fee for your exam.
  4. I have a friend who has since passed away. He had no medical insurance and needed 3 surgeries in one year, paying out of pocket. His doctors knew that and found him reasonably priced hospitals and negotiated the price for him. One doctor, the third surgery, took intallment payments for his work since my friend had money coming in but did not have enough to pay the doctor his whole fee immediately. So try to get help from your doctor.
  5. If you Google map the new address for Integrity it is the former location of Lakeside Medical in Riberas. I understand Lakeside Medical has moved to the new hospital.
  6. I have a friend who is available to do house sitting. Short term or long term is OK. He does not have a car so a remote location could be an issue. He has references, single man, no pets, experienced house sitter. Contact Magnus Robertson at magnus125@ymail.com
  7. Dr. Jessica Flores is my recommendation.
  8. Looking for a mechanic who used to work at Francisco's garage in Riberas. I believe he is back in business, I think it's Ricccardo. Does anyone know where he is working now?
  9. Anyone know where to get car air-conditioning serviced hopefully Lakeside? I think I am running low on coolant. Thanks in advance.
  10. Thanks everyone, I connected in terminal 1.
  11. Is terminal 2 at Guadalajara Airport clised? Need to pick up a friend on incoming Aeromar flt. Thanks
  12. I have had ultrasounds and x rays done there. Both excellent quality digital tests and results while you wait. They are in the plaza above Centro Laguna, at the top, same side as Tio Sam, near the vet Berenice.
  13. So sorry, San Juan Cosala for gas delivery
  14. Does anyone know a reliable propane delivery guy? Called mine Friday and too busy. Called this morning and said maybe by noon but very busy. He used to be relaible but I need gas soon. Thanks
  15. There is a sewage treatment plant in lower San Antonio on Ramon Corona and it often overflows when it rains, has done for many years. I used to live on that street and when it rains the smell can be awful. Same thing with the one in San Juan Cosala only that one is not in the village but west of the village. You can still smell it driving on the carraterra.
  16. Letty, owner of the shop Lakeside Medical on the carraterra in West Ajijic can arrange home health care and any equipment you might need such as hospital bed, walker, bedside pot, etc. She will come to your home and evaluate what you need and can supply 24 - 7 nurses, and will give you injections and other meds you may need. She is in the little strip on the carraterra just west of Bobby's new restarant. I can get the phone number and post it later.
  17. I do tip her, not everyone does. Tipping is a personal perrogative.
  18. Need a massage? Lili at Hotel Perico in Chapala does a great massage. Former orthopedic surgeon (losing her eyesight) has a heated massage board and does massages in a private casita. For your first appointment in English call Tom owner of the hotel for an appointment at cell phone 333 142 0012. If you speak Spanish you can call her directly at 331 262 0724.
  19. A friend told me it's a TELCEL modem and you pay a monthly fee for service. I'm just guessing buy imagine you can use it for any device that uses wifi.
  20. Anyone using the new TELCEL internet? Are you happy with it? I'm tired of the problems with Telmex internet.
  21. Anyone using the new TELCEL internet? Are you happy with it? I'm tired of the problems with Telex internet.
  22. Sent you a private message.
  23. I got some at farmacia Cristina - they sold it in very small packages. Haven't looked for it recently.
