Found a great three bedroom / two bathroo apartment for her, fully furnished; with a heated garage, washer / dryer, gas fireplace......................................... ........

If we don't have it rented by the time we arrive we will put up some flyers; and run another ad in the Bozeman paper...........................................

Well welcome back, I have missed you.

Happy New Year to you as well.
Well it certainly appears you have things 'well-in-hand'.

Your choice of vehicle & tires is great. I'm sure she'll love driving it and will feel safe .....even in some less than desireable driving conditions.

Regarding the room-mate situation................I wish I had an answer for you.
Perhaps now that the Holiday season is almost over, there may be some returning students (looking for housing) that will see your ad, flyers, etc. I wish you the best of luck in that regard.

Have a safe trip to Montana.

Griz

Well, it is in need of a root canal AND according to the doc I've got a heck of an absess infection going on that's why my palatte hurts. I would have it pulled except it's a front tooth and I don't want to look like rickers cousins!

They want $1400 to fix 'er up so I guess it's off to Los Algadones Mexico! Just about 90% of the rv'ers I've talked to go to Mexico for dental,glasses and meds (not to mention booze). Algadones is the largest concentration of dental offices in the world from what I've read and their prices are very reasonable to say the least.

How about a root canal for around $300 or less and then the crown for $100? These are american trained dentists for the most part who live in Yuma,AZ but own dental offices in Algadones. From what I've been hearing most of the offices are very clean and have the latest equipment and sometimes have newer stuff that the US docs.
The crowns are made and fitted while you wait, none of this "come back in a week" stuff and I'm told it's the same with dentures. I've got to see what an implant would run there, here it's $3k....

It is frightening when you compare those prices with what an average person makes. If you don't have dental care; how do you pay $1400 - $2000 for a dental procedure.

I guess I am getting old, but I remember paying $2400 for my first new car. Actually the first house we bought was $42,000. (Not saying when that was)

But seriously; before I was laid off in Aug., my take home pay was $715 a week, so I would have to work for two or three weeks just to pay the dentist.

Feel better and have a happy and safe New Year's

Mine was a back tooth so I understand you don't wanna look like Jethro LOL. But are you really that brave to trust Mexican doctors? I would be sooo scared. Knowing how that tooth felt just *touching* it hurt, let alone drilling into it for a root canal. Guess I'm a chicken lol. My hat off to you, Jim!

I've been to dentists in Mexico twice and saved a lot of money, they both did fine work. I also drank plenty of tap water in TJ (from deep wells) and found it tasting better than San Diego tap water (from the tail end of the Colorado River). I also never had any issues from eating street stand food in Mexico.

Thumbs up It's a Wonderful World.

Happy new year ya all, my resolution will be to watch less TV and listen to more music. Here are two You-Tubes of the same song done by Louis Armstrong and another by Rod Stewart. Enjoy our wonderful world for another new year. If you have dial up be patient and let them load they are both well worth watching.
My wife got a little teary eyed watching these.
