No bubble for me!

Jeffrey: You're right...I am making too big a deal out of this. It was just the prospect of having to things like seal my shoes in plastic bags when not wearing them, shaking out the bedsheets every nite before retiring, searching kitchen cupboards w/a flashlight before reaching in for a can of bean...

Re: snakes & scorps

Jeffrey, thanks a lot for your reply to my query. It's not the most comforting answer I could have hoped for but I thank you for it anyway. Guess even the original Paradise had its snake! Do the scorpion poisons really work? What about using natural "terminators" like a gecko lizard? I like those cr...

Nasty critters there?

In a Mexico blog I read that scorpions and "a viper" come into the blogger's house on a weekly basis. It was not clear what part of Mexico that blogger lives in. But...are scorpions and vipers to be found in the Bay of Banderas area? Vipers are by definition lethat and scorpion stings are excruciati...

Could I be the ONLY one??

Is it possible that I am the only expat who would want to read a hardcopy English-language newspaper, like, daily, in PV??? During several visits to PV I noticed that hotel shops and tiendas seldom if ever had any English-language newspapers for sale. The International Herald Tribune can be subscrib...

English-language PRINT newspaper available?

I hope this topic is not a repeat of earlier posts but a search of the forum turned up nothing on the subject, so... :?: Is there any English-language PRINT newspaper delivery available to residents in PV?

Any swimming pool big enough for laps?

There was a query to this form last year on this subject but I could not see any responses to the question, so I'm asking... Is there any athletic facility or other venue in PV that has a swimming pool long enough to swim exercise laps in? Maybe an athletic club? A school that has recreational hours...

:) Thanks to mgallard and bella luna et al: I like what I'm hearing from you all. Even here in the US I don't eat or use frozen food anyway. Veggies, meats, and poultry, and fish I buy fresh at local stores. So lack of frozen food sections in PV markets is irrelevant. HOWEVER, when lazy I like to co...

Housing issues

:? To Anybody Who Has an Opinion: After several yrs of surfing PV websites, Mexico websites, and visits to Mexico, it looks like Mexican builders are in love with concrete block houses with inadequate kitchen storage. All you find are dark, cramped bungalows with all the appeal of a gas station in t...
