  1. I haven’t done this in a couple of years. I know there has been a good deal of road work done so I’m wondering what the best (fastest) route might be. TIA

    As well as some other businesses as well. Still don’t know if they are closed or on holiday.
  3. Since you asked, I’ll tell you something you don’t know. Climate change is about a lot more than CO2 accumulation. That’s so 90s. Methane gas emissions from cows is now considered by many to be a major problem as are NO containing compounds. If you think it’s all about CO2 you are badly under informed. Perhaps more time researching and less time posting would help. Get the ring out of your nose and stick in a research journal.
  4. With the recent spike in violent crime I think that the boards owners should revisit their policy prohibiting the reporting violent crime. No problem with prohibiting discussion as that leads to endless speculation and opinionated post. Admittedly most of the current violent crimes are almost certainly gang related, I feel people, particularly non Spanish speakers, should be informed as a matter of safety. Not good for selling houses but good for keeping your clients safe which I know is important to you.
  5. I hold a PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry and have taken several courses in free radical chemistry. I would suggest that the complex atmospheric interactions between HO- and CH4 (methane) are unlikely to be intelligently discussed in this forum. Just a thought.
  6. I have not seen them open lately and I get a fast busy when I call them. Are they closed for good or maybe just on vavation?
  7. We have had the service for about 6 months now. We average about 30 Mbps both up and down and with almost no latency. We are on the mountain side in West Ajijic and have direct line of sight to a cell tower. You do have to purchase the modem and agree to a 2 year contract but the contract can be terminated for a modest fee. Definitely the way to go.

    Spago’s open

    Four of us went for dinner this past Saturday and thought the food was better than OK but that the service was terrible. The servers were young, clean cut and friendly but we all had the impression that this was their first job of any kind. I spoke with the front side supervisor whom I knew from his previous position at another restaurant. He told me that they were totally overwhelmed by the mumber of customers coming. He added that they were planning on reducing the choices on the menu, expanding the kitchen and adding both kitchen staff and servers. The physical plant is nice and I wish them well, out they definitely have work to do. We will not try it again for dinner for several weeks. Breakfast and lunch may be fine.
  9. As would I. Thanks. I have read articles on adding Kodi to Roku and before attempting it, I was curious if anyone had done it successfully. If anyone has been able to watch USTVnow on Firestick I would be interested in heading about that as well.
  10. Chillin, that was helpful as well. I read an average of 2 books a week. Watch sports and maybe a couple of hours of news a week on TV. My minds still pretty much OK.
  11. For those not familiar with it is a great service that allows people outside the US to watch some US networks for a reasonable fee. In can be installed on your Roku device effectively only by using Kodi. Watching from tablet, phone, or PC is a pain. Any thoughts?
  12. Eric took the initiative to find my phone number in their reservation book and call me last night. I admitted to being a short tempered Irishman with a short fuse and was probablely already PO’d because I had just gotten a flat tire from a piece of rebar sticking sticking out from the curb on Constitution. Bottom line: I’d be cutting off my nose to spite my face by not returning frequently to a restaurant as good as Elegante over a silly mistake.
  13. Eric, i appreciae your.apology, however that’s not entirely accurate. When we made our reservation, our waitress, who is wonderful, ask if we would like anything special that night. I said it would be nice if you had the lobster that night and my wife said the regular menu is fine as I really like the salmon. Perhaps we will come back again under an assumed name so we don’t embarrass ourselves. Oops, I hope Larry and his wife didn’t have a problem as well. As the last posters comment, no compensation is wanted or desired. Your thought is appreciated.
  14. We had made reservations in mid January to have dinner here on the 26th to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We dine here with some frequency when we are at our home here in Ajijic and have always enjoyed it. When my wife and I walked in that evening in we were greeted by the owner stopping us in the entrance and saying “Not tonight”. I said something about having reservations and she said oh you are those people. Only after we were seated did we learn that they were only offering a prefix menu that evening. Our wonderful hostess/waitress tried her best to accommodate us but as my wife has a seafood allergy and doesn’t care for beef, there was not able to help. We love the staff and think Steve is a very talented chef. An apology from the owner would have kept us coming back! If she hadn’t posted here thanking everyone for coming without apologizing to the frequent dinners who had made prior reservations that she was unable to accommodate,I would not have posted this.
