    Hello. We just moved to the area yesterday and in need of home furnishings. We are looking for 2 modern comfortable armchairs, queen size mattress and a twin mattress, all in very good/excellent condition. Also, any suggestion of consignment stores or furniture stores would be most welcomed. Thank you in advance.

    Gringal...sorry just couldn’t let that one pass on a rainy Sunday....and what pray tell makes you think for a moment that you could possibly hava a clue what” a very qualified Chef “ is .Oh..he must have told you so , what was I thinking ? Perhaps a little research is necessary try “So you wanna be a Chef “ by Anthony Bourdain may he Rest In Peace or the “The making of a Chef “ by Rhulman.Both will explain why it takes a Chef to know a Chef .I could count the real Chefs in our town on one hand and have fingers to spare .

    Bandol. Apart from your impeccable judgement I’m intrigued by your nom de plume , I was kinda hoping you have some sort of affinity or love of Bandol wines a little known appellation in the Provence which produces probably one of the most powerful and tannic wines in France. If not you ought to find one in the States ...not easy....but worth it..let it sit and then let it kick your ### .

    Ian: Perhaps you did not see, among the booths at the border, the "Border Promotion Booth" it is right next to the bumper sticker booth. Anyway, there are expensive promotions and the very, very cheap ones like "restaurant critic"....that one sells like crazy.....some of the posters on here purchased those like crazy

    Gringal....the lady doth protest too much me thinks....I don’t consider the remarks put downs ,but more “ tongue in cheek commentaries “ My wife however does tend to agree with you . After thousands of posts I’m somewhat surprised you take them personally . I prefer to call it indirect sarcasm...the product of my English sense of humour plus over fifty years in international kitchens.You have however achieved your desired result....I am far too busy to participate in back and forth meaningless banrter so in the future I will probably only address absolute idiocies and post the odd positive review.

    I have yet to buy anything at Barbara's Bazaar because the parking is awful and I find their prices much higher than the other stores. Even Todo Bueno could use some serious organization and marketing. My current favourite is "It's kinda Bazaar..and kinda not"... on the lakeside of the highway in Riberas. Stuff in there seems to move very quickly. Easy to park, easy to walk around and logically displayed. YMMV.

    I'm okay with anyone's reviews until they claim "expertise".

    The difference is that British humour is amusing and produces a positive reaction. Doesn't look like that happened.😉 I had brunch today at a place with a very qualified chef and I asked him what he thought about serving bloody liver. He was appalled.

    With a Lechter liver, I'd prefer a cabernet.

    We have sold several many items for decent prices at Todo Bueno. Even some items we thought would never sell such as 20 year old scuba and snorkel gear. The parking is easy and plentiful, at least the times we have been there.

    I am not going to mince words here. Yes, they are active again (or still ) in this area. After having a LONG visit (7 months) with my son nob, I have been back less than a week. Yesterday, in my Inbox on my private email was a "gift" from her... They must have seen me in the Avenida in Chapala or perhaps in the mall in Ajijic. She began posting here as 'Denise.' Then changed to 'Paschall1964', then to 'Peanut1964." Her gmail is Paschall 1964@gmail.com. She has a FB page, but I don't do FB. They arrived down here last July/August - she posting ahead looking for a cheap place for him to stay. Their names are Denise & Anthony Paschall. She is white & he is Afro-American. I have investigated both of them with the authorities in Florida. She claims to have been a classroom teacher (who specializes in teaching 'Shakespeare,' LOL), according to her FB page. If so, must have been voluntary, because there is no record of her on the Florida Classroom Teachers Association, nor the Retired Teachers Association. (My grandparents were teachers - I know where to look.). Likewise, since he claimed to be a parole officer, I checked with the Dade County & Ocala Police Departments, as well as the Florida Bureau of Pardons & Paroles. Never heard of him. He's 48. Awful young to retire. They said they had 30 years' credentials??? Really? Musta started at 18, then. I tried to warn about a year ago & was just shut down by the Admin/Mods. Nobody asked my side of the story at all. I don't participate much in this forum, but most DEF do not appreciate being stalked. Interact with them at your own risk. They got me one night (after I had shopped ONCE with her, so she had my phone number) after I'd taken my sleeping tablet, begging if they could spend ONE night because their car had exploded on the road from PV... Bullied & threatened me physically, etc. Never paid me anything like rent. Made a hella mess of everything. I had to have them removed by force almost 10 days later. I am a gentle person & had never encountered this "type" before. I was stupid. However, I stand behind every word I have ever said about this couple.
