A message from outside of San Miguel  


6/16/04 Mayor Luis Alberto Villareal inaugurates a pharmacy at DIF.   This pharmacy will have medicine at low prices.  The purpose is to help all people who can not afford to pay for medicines elsewhere.  It appeared that gringos as well as Mexican naturals would  be able to use this service assuming they met whatever needs test was being applied.

6/8/04  -  Satellite TV from the DISH network is now available legally and at a fair cost in SMA. Through the efforts of  Mel Berry (a dealer in satellite systems in Houston), individuals may have access to satellite television from the USA in a variety of ways.  Those who already have Direct TV dishes will be able to continue to use their current dishes.  And those who are new to satellite tv as well as those who have purchased it previously may acquire new DISH receivers in a rebate program wherein the receivers are acquired for no cost.  Anyone may then purchase any number of programming packages at the same cost as anyone living in the USA.   More information on this is on the tips for living here page.

A message from outside of San Miguel:

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common   ---   this is my symphony."

Objectives of this page:  this page is intended to show that which is most current in the way of news applicable to our San Miguel expatriate residents.  "Current", obviously, is subjective and relative, as we must rely on our readers for their input from local radio, local TV, and from the Spanish language press, as well as  input from the various parts of the Internet.
