    I believe you are "grandfathered" in, or whatever they call it these days. So you will still get the same services until you call and change plans.

    Homemade Chicken Sharwarma

    Currently sitting in the land of pho, and smoked meat, and fried chicken, and burgers, and poutine, and sausage carts. Hard to think of following recipes when I can boogie on down the street to one of dozens of shawarma places. Your links look good, though.

    The baloney parts. There is so much BS bloviated opinion here that anyone looking for real advice would be better to take this advice: stay away. If you weren't confused before, you will be by now.

    Caffè Mediterraneo in Riberas

    My sauce was excellent. Not clear on why the wife's nationality or home address is pertinent. Waiters around here are always asking before you are ready. Chili sauce on a Mexican table? You have to be kidding. As far as the wine prices go, I don't drink, so it wouldn't have occurred to me.

    Cripes, I hope no one is reading this ill-informed, prejudiced line of baloney.

    One: the story mentioned above is so misleading as to be pointless. There was one cheesed-off agent here who decided that setting the percentage at a certain point was collusion. Now the point is lower, which while definitely good for buyers/sellers, does not prove in any way that it was illegal. Or that they did anything wrong. Heck, even the gas stations in my home town set their prices amongst themselves every day of the week. The government inquiries have neve been able to prove anything illegal is taking place. This situation threw a whole lot of good people under the bus for the egomania of one guy. Two: Joco and RV are absolutely right. Notarios are better trained and more informed. Of course, there are always exceptions on both sides. (Edited) Three: each broker I know has their favoured notarios, not because they "collude", and not because they "fix" deeds (holy cow, really?), but because they know their methods and they get along well. The buyer is welcome to bring/use their own notario any time. This is not helpful when the notario is from Guadalajara and everyone has to troop out there several times to finish a local sales job, but if that is what has to be done, that's what's done.

    Caffè Mediterraneo in Riberas

    I ate there about three weeks ago, and it was excellent. I will go back. Pizzas were being made and delivered out constantly. Great little pieces of garlic bread from the pizza oven while we waited for our orders. I would not call the space "outside" any more; it's basically a tent roof and wall attached to the open garage.

    That is a really good suggestion. For some people, also an additional note about drowsiness.

    You don't know me, and to go around making comments about my life is just self-aggrandizing. We did buy a house here about 13 years ago in Riberas. We also sold it some years later. Not long therafter, we rented from an agent who owned the property. Also, in an earlier job selling ads for a local English-language magazine, I got to know every realtor in town. I have an acquaintance with several notarios and lawyers at functions I attend. Do I need to ask you what your experience is, to try and call me out on this? Don't answer that.

    I think a lot of dust and smoke in the air is contributing.

    She went and got the plate? Is that reacting to the situation?

    This board is most often used to answer general questions about life here. I would certainly come here first with that kind of question. It is doubtful that if more than one person is experiencing it, that it is a question for a physician. For example, jacaranda allergies: I only experience it about every four years; some experience it every year, and this board is the perfect place to ask about it. And personally, I don't go rushing off to a doctor about every little thing. I have to ask, "Rick": what was your former name here? Every one of your five comments so far has been judgmental or disparaging. A great asset to this community. Please, lighten up.
