  1. Endocrinologist needed

    Sorry to cause confusion for the OP by disagreeing with this, but my experience was definitely not good.
  2. Looking for

    He "disappeared " a few years ago after taking a fairly large deposit for furniture from a friend of mine. He tried repeatedly to reach him but never did get an answer on his phone number that he had.
  3. There is a coffee expert in town named Kevin Knox. Maybe you can find him on Facebook, or on here. I think he was a coffee buyer for many years.
  4. No it makes PERFECT sense. If one person calls maybe it is a problem with the wiring in his house. If 50 people call, they know the problem is theirs.
  5. Sorry I can't answer your question, but did you know you can have that done right here in Ajijic? Victor at the art studio on Javier Mina, a few doors south of Gossip's, can copy a photo from you for a reasonable price. Not a portrait I think, but a photo of scenery, etc. Maybe you could ask him for a quote.
  6. sasha in Chapala for haircuts

    Better yet get directions from Sasha herself when you make your appointment. She works in her home and does not like her address to be published for security reasons.

    It seems that i-phone and i-pad are the names a lot of people use incorrectly for all smart phones and tablets these days, just like Kleenex is used instead of tissues when it is often another product the person is really talking about, like this phone.
  8. any bilingual job opportunities?

    Try joining this Facebook group for job opportunities in the area. "Ofertas de trabajo en La Ribera". If you're bilingual there are often opportunities to work in restaurants for sure.
  9. Gary Matson Passed

    I was sorry to hear about Gary passing away, Blue. You two were friends for a long time. Sorry for your loss.

    We have been told by clerks at Telmex that the speed you can receive here depends on your location, and that even if someone pays for the 599 pesos plan, they won't get a better speed than someone who pays for the 389 peso plan. It depends on what is available in your neighborhood. Your home owner may think because she pays for the more expensive plan she will get better speed but its not necessarily so. For that reason we downgraded to the cheapest plan and we still happen to get 10 on download because that's what is available where we live.
  11. Earthquake yesterday?

    https://www.vallartadaily.com/news/puerto-vallarta/earthquake-5-6-degrees-recorded-jalisco/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+VallartaDaily+(Vallarta+Daily) Here is a short article about it.
  12. Instant Pot

    If Amazon in Mexico charges this much, imagine what a specialty kitchen shop will charge. There will likely be a good special on them for Black Friday coming up. https://www.amazon.com.mx/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=instant+pot
  13. Instant Pot

    We bought one from Amazon U.S. and use it about 4 times a week. I just made fabulous soup in it today and we often make our own Greek yogurt now. The internet is full of Instant Pot recipes and Facebook pages of people sharing questions and recipes. The greatest thing about it is that once you have chopped your ingredients, and dropped them in and fired it up, you can walk away! No stirring, no hovering over it to be sure nothing burns, just wait for the timer signal to go off when it has done its absolutely silent work, and then eat. Only one pot to clean up afterwards. It replaces your slow cooker, your rice cooker, your soup pot, etc,. Its an electric pressure cooker and everything happens in a very short period of time. I can highly recommend it!
  14. FOUND: ATM card for Jack Pomp

    If the owner of the card is unaware that he even left it behind, the OP's efforts to find him and return it could save him a lot of trouble and I'm sure would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Intraocular Lens

    Mine were done by Dr. Andres Padilla in Guadalajara, at the San Pablo Eye Clinic. Avenida Americas #1200, Zapopan. Call 3833-7373 or 3833-7374 for appointments. Its a beautiful clean clinic which I recommend as a good choice. www.centrooftalmologico.com.mx
