  1. Does anyone have a cook?

    Yes please bdmowers, I’d be very appreciative if you would PM me your cook’s name and phone. Fifty years of cooking dinners is too long!
  2. gomez tile

    The vacant lots have been gone for a long time. Indio is set back from the Carreterra and adjacent to Have Hammers etc
  3.  

    Spencer,  we spoke the other day about replacing a lost and expired driving license.  When is your car going to Guadalajara.  I would like one space if it is fairly soon.

  4. A lovely man. A great loss to us all.
  5. Medical supplies needed

    I’ve compared Lidia’s prices with those in a couple of specialty stores in Guadalajara and found them very similar for high quality items. And I agree with Ferret about her skills and decency towards her patients. She coordinates with medical practitioners and provides the best care. She has a remarkable CV.
  6. Walmart same old story

    Yes TelsZ4 price is important to me. Over the past 15 years living here I have dealt with several phone dealers including the one to whom you refer. The woman is certainly attentive but the end results are no better than most. And yes, she is more expensive.
  7. Tried to buy a cell phone today and was required to pay before activation. Personnnel tried to instal chip and activate. I was repeatedly told that the “system” was down. Then it was allegedly activated but the in-store test call failed. I decided that I would not continue with what was clearly a dud. The two blank-faced assistants told me that it was impossible to get a refund. The blank-faced person in charge at the service counter refused a refund even tho’ of course I had the receipt and the phone had not yet left the store. I insisted; she insisted on slowly reviewing the whole transaction with the two b-f assistants and the technician. All slowly and surlily the money was refunded to me. As I left the store the defective phone was being replaced in the show case to be sold to the next person.

  9. Coffee Hour by the pineapple fountain has WiFi. Fax/scan no. Can the Legion help?
  10. Getting out of DAC

    Green Solutions opposite the Scandinavian Bakery in the Interlago Plaza fixed my solar problem after Desmex would not come Lakeside. They will also supply cleaners. Pleasant and reliable to deal with.
  11. Dawn of Justice in Mexico

    Isn’t it more accurate to assess the number of deaths with regard to population numbers? Chicago and Ocotlan hardly compare although of course both are terrible. When my husband was stabbed and robbed in Ajijic a few weeks ago, one intellectually challenged person suggested he had been fortunate because the stabbing toll for that weekend in a large US town was so much higher. Yes Chillin, a worrying report. Trying to graft (no pun intended) a new and cumbersome system on top of an old and cumbersome one has led exactly to what is described.
  12. It is pleasant and respectable either side of Pepe Guizar as you go toward the Lake. The Cultural Centre (Old Railway Station) is a stately building which hosts interesting events. A robust walk into Centro.
  13. Easy to find. Turn off Lazaro Cardenas onto 8 July and drive along the lateral past the big IMSS hospital, keep going across the lights and turn sharp right into the underground parking. Motor Vehicle Branch is on the 2nd floor.
  14. There is a ju-jitsu etc. place in Chapala on Gonzalez Gallo opposite the Cristiania Park tennis courts.
