  1. Good service since 1959. Seldom need to call.
  2. Whack the check valve with a hammer. It may cure the problem. If it happens again, replace the check valve.
  3. Avoid anyone who leaves you unsure that they have been vaccinated. Wear your mask and offer them one. If they refuse, stuff it in their throat and pinch their nose for four minutes. It may help the pandemic and the gene pool.
  4. lightning vs lightening. You can do one, while thee other will do you....quickly.
  5. Currently, the unvaccinated are being eliminated by the virus. Justice prevails....🙀
  6. That is possible, and would be good news. Be sure to get checked frequenly; just to be sure.
  7. Just like deities. Nevertheless, folks imagine them and put up images of them. Funny, how those words are so similar......
  8. In my experience, all of those "noiseless spaceships" have also been invisible. Imagine that!
  9. Have it your way. But, you should know that, when a vitrectomy is recommended, most will be done ASAP; within 24 hours, as retinal detachment and collapse is usually sudden and without many symptoms that you will notice before it happens. You may have a few flashes, and/or a few floaters, but many people just ignore them, as they are fleeting events. "He who hesitates is lost".
  10. Hesitating and/or avoiding the best eye clinic and retinologist in Guadalajara may cost you your sight. Get off your a$$ and get it done now. Your eye is probably deteriorating and will suddenly go dark when the retina detatches and falls to the bottom of your eye. You will not see anything at all. Blackness!!!!! It will be sudden. the only warning is what you have already received.
  11. Don't hesitate! You may wake up blind one morning without having the necessary vitrectomy. If you are still hesitant to get vaccinated, you may prefer a suffocating death to being blind. Random thoughts..........
  12. I have had several victrectomy's from 2004 through 2013. Dr. Enrique Roig (enriqueroig@retina.com.mx) did them at Clinica Santa Lucia in Guadalajara. I do have silicon oil in one eye, which has very limited vision, but the other eye has been quite successfully treated and does not require glasses for other than reading fine print. That said, my field of vision is too narrow to allow me to drive, and I now have glaucoma being treated for the last few years.
  13. Choosing to remain unvaccinated is really selfish. It is for those with such sociopathic tendencies that mandated vaccination is needed.
  14. Gee, we must have picked the one peaceful night to visit. Enjoyed good seafood supper near centro, and room service breakfast at the pet-friendly hotel.
  15. It is a well traveled route, and you should expect nothing out of the ordinary. Just decide how far you want to drive each day and pick an overnight location, as there are many choices. The last time we used that route, we did it in two long days with an overnight in Culiacan.
  16. We like them steamed until open, then served with garlic butter.
  17. Fry in hot oil. A delicacy in some parts, if you watch "Naked and Afraid".
  18. If I were there, I might be tempted to deliver a strategic knee jerk to a specific jerk. Oh well......
  19. Your turn is coming, unless you fail along the way.
  20. Mexicans use two family names, patrinomial and matrinomial, after their given name. European derived names are entirely different and do not fit the hispanic pattern, nor do they identify the mother's family name at all. Note that Mexican women do not change their names when they get married. The terms, first, middle, and last names do not apply to Mexican names.
  21. Natasha is absolutely correct in advising that you walk in a normal, upright manner. The walker's grips should be loosely held at either side of you, and for security more than for support. When you tire; set the brakes and sit for awhile. I like mine better than a cane, and a wheelchair is too heavy to transport easily.
  22. Ferret said it all. Follow her advice. We used them for 14 years in both Ajijic and Chapala. Fantastic service and really nice family business. They are also very talented with other ironwork projects.
  23. My first response For the original post is, "Why do you want to live in a 'gated community'? We moved to Ajijic in 2001 and lived on a normal street until 2004, when we moved to Chapala Centro, on a normal street, and stayed for the next decade; until age and infirmity drove us notth to the VA and Medicare systems. We desperately miss Chapala, but have to accept our fates in our dotage. We never considered a fraccionamiento or 'gated community' and were sublimely happy with our lives in Chapala.
