    Physio Therapy Services

    Not just a receipt but a factura is required for insurance providers whether therapy, doctor appts. drugs, etc.

    Bottled water

    I've been drinking water from Jocotepec for over 20 years - long before the various brands available now. One day this year I asked my doctor about the best supplier - the answer: How did I feel, was I ever ill with tummy problems or whatever? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Funeral home contract

    No police assuming a "natural" death...
  4. I think the Tuesday parking situation is also a pain in the butt.... with vendors also having filled the front row spaces.
  5. Either card works.... I have an INAPAM and as I recall the DIF is not as widely used even in Jalisco. At one point, it was going to be discontinued. I'll check.

    Cinnamon Rolls

    Cross the carretera and turn LEFT on the carretera. Go right one block further up on Juarez And then you will see a sign that says PAN.

    I was on the trial run this past Tuesday - 10 renewals and 5 newbies. Arrived just before 9 am when they opened and all were successfully finished by 11 am. Easy and smooth - done for another 4 years!
  8. And I have wall cabinets and a desk that I bought at IKEA in Jeddah 30 years ago. Shipped it to Mexico along with the rest of the household and it still looks good and has held up well. I'm curious to see what the store will be like. Kitchen stuff, etc and welcome to Bed, Bath and Beyond as well...

    crutches needed

    For quite some time, LCS has not had a supply of medical nor baby supplies. Lots of places now where such supplies are available and as a volunteer organization there is no one to maintain the equipment nor sufficient space to store them.

    Where to donate nice eyeglass frames?

    Luis at LCS on Thursdays and that's where I'm taking mine. Other days you can take them to the office and mention that they are for Luz. I know that she sees that are are but too good use.

    Cataract surgery

    And another plus for Dr.Claudia. She did my stage 4 cataract several years ago and all is well. I saw her last week to check on the other eye which was stage 2 back then. She will do the surgery if I want but my vision overall is at 90%. One is farsighted and the other near. So for the days I work on the computer or read for 5+ hours, I have reading glasses.

    Brown Out Lower Ajijic

    Independencia and Pedro Moreno also...CFE said four hours - their usual answer. Another two to go?
  13. Just ordered a three pack from Amazon MX, two day delivery, $220 pesos.
  14. LCS has a pilot program for LCS members to obtain a new or renewal drivers license in Guadalajara. The initial program is full (limited to 16 people) and is scheduled for August 20-21. The first day includes a class in Mexican driving regulations and the second includes a morning van to Guadalajara with a return. All required documents have had to be submitted to the Education Director, a fee of 750 pesos paid (license fee payable that day in Guad). All documents are verified for complete information and are sent to the Main Office where we have appointments. Note the class is optional for those only renewing but the fee is the same. Handouts with complete information were available and hopefully this will be an ongoing program. Mine expires in September and I'll be out of town...so I'm going as well.
