  1. I agree with everything else, they really seem to have their act together. But unless they are going to have someone to follow me around loading my cart seems rather senseless. But hey, less work for me.
  2. Thanks, that's what I wanted to know. Though we'll probably stay in for a couple more days.
  3. Even before the problem with coronavirus I didn't have a problem with crowds. I always made sure to shop early and avoid days before holidays. No problem with social distancing. Not everyone lives under the same circumstances. Just picked up my wife on Thurs. from having surgery, haven't had a chance to go to Costco. Haven't left the house for 3 days. We don't live in an area that would have deliveries. If people are actually staying home and Costco is open now would seem to be a perfect time to go. In the U.S. there's talk of Costco opening early for seniors, are they doing that down here also? What are you people going to do a week from now, maybe even a month or two? Eventually you're going to have to go out.
  4. With the Jalisco govt. asking people to stay home for 5 days I'm wondering if this has changed Costco's hours or if they will even be open. Haven't been able to find anything online.
  5. Assuming your talking about the Monday market at Sunrise restaurant. I got there this morning about 9:40, plenty of parking. The crowd was about half the size of normal. Several vendors were also missing. Whether this was because of the holiday or the virus I couldn't say.. Heard one vendor say she was going to be taking several weeks off because of the virus.
  6. And then you have..... Yesterday morning my wife and I had to pick some one up in Chapala around 4:30. Going up the hill from Ixtlahuacan we passed a cow standing on the side of the road. Coming back the same cow had decided to cross back to the upper downhill side. Luckily I had room to swerve and miss her. You never know what you might meet on the roads here. They're out to get ya!
  7. I stopped in today to just get information. Definitely doesn't look temporary. Location is also a lot better than the last one.
  8. If you're bald with just fringe on the sides why not go all the way? I've been shaving my head for the last 25 years, so much easier and cheaper.
  9. I have about 35 kg of cat litter that neither my cat nor I need. The brand is Scoop Away. The majority is in unopened box and sack. Giving it away, take it all. PM me, or the cat (her name is Zoe). Or you can reply on this thread. Can deliver.
  10. Megacable. They have an office right on the plaza in town. By the way we're getting 42.7 download and 4.47 upload.
  11. Another vote for Beto. He's done quite a lot of work around our house. Just remember that the good ones are usually busy so you need to be patient.
  12. Your best bet is to go to Guadalajara. But it's not necessary to go to the fabric district. There is a Parisina store in a shopping center that's located on the right before you get to the Lazaro Cardenas turnoff. Stay on the right side of road as you go up the hill, just after the road crests the hill and starts back down there is an exit. Take it and the first right . The shopping center is there. Can't miss it.
  13. Come meet the group today around 11:00 at Maria Isabel restaurant.
  14. Since they open at 10 do they also serve breakfast?
  15. We've traveled many times between here and our daughter's home in Colorado Springs and find that the crossing at Sta. Teresa, just west of El Paso/Juarez, is the fastest. Usually no more than one or two cars ahead of us.
  16. Are you thinking of Carnes Fines de Sonora? Their address is, Ave. Vallarta #4951. Phone # 333 629-5159. Superb selection of meat.
  17. It's been my experience that to get a good auto upholstery job you need to go to a shop that specializes in auto upholstery. Unfortunately there aren't any of those lakeside. Look in Guadalajara.
  18. Well with the inception of the kayak club some six or seven years ago we haven't lost anyone yet. We regularly have safety classes in which it is required that you fall out of your kayak and either get back in by yourself or with the help of others.
  19. What year is your CRV? I'm sure there will be a lot of nay sayers but if it is fairly new try taking it to the dealers. My wife and I bought a 2017 Honda Fit new and have had all the maintenance since then done by Vanguardia. You'll be assured that all fluids and parts are genuine Honda parts. One time we had a noise coming from the front end that sounded like a shock had broken. Took it to the dealer and found out that there was a bracket that had come loose, fixed, no charge.
  20. There is no renewal for the green card. It's permanent.
  21. When we first applied for IMSS 10 years ago for some reason my account was put under my birth name even though I'd had it changed over 50 years ago. I've been treated in the clinics and even had an operation and never had a problem. This year we went in and was told that sorry you have to have your account in your legal name now and that I need to have my birth certificate and change of name documents appostilled. What a pain! Now I have to fly up to the states to have it taken care of.
  22. I would suggest finding an upholsterer that specializes in auto upholstery. There's a reason they're out there. Don't know of any lakeside, might have to look in Guadalajara. I took some seats to Miguel, after 2 attempts to correct their mistakes I ended up giving them away.
  23. They certainly get around! We were in Pena de Bernal in the state of Queretaro last week and saw them there. I'm sure they must have more than one pair of young men selling them. By the way we paid 550 pesos for a queen size.
  24. To each his own. I think eating Twizzlers is akin to eating licorice flavored plastic. And from that link they're not exactly cheap.
