  1. The ones by Villa Lucerna are identical to the ones near me. I see now. Each flower in the clump has 4 larger petals which fall off first leaving the stamens and sepals only-making the flower look much smaller. The ones where I live (San Juan Cosala) are a bit farther ahead-without the petals. So it must be Barkleyanthus (Senecio) genus. Not sure what species. One common English name is ragwort. If you look at the 11th picture here http://jehuite.blogspot.mx/2008/04/teocintle-y-dunas.html Common Spanish name Asomiate or Jarilla
  2. If you wait a bit one of those stores will probably have it again. I bought it at Walmart or Superlake.
  3. http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=BASA5 https://www.google.com.mx/search?q=barkleyanthus+salicifolius&newwindow=1&site=webhp&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiw6pH8gLbJAhUKdT4KHQaPBc0QiR4IggE&biw=1024&bih=644 http://www.conabio.gob.mx/malezasdemexico/asteraceae/senecio-salignus/fichas/ficha.htm I'll look by Villa Lucerna today.
  4. Weird. Something is wrong. I take out 10,000 pesos at a time with my ATM card. It costs me $814 Canadian a few days ago. The Canadian dollar isn't losing value against the peso. It is about the same now as it was one and two years ago.
  5. I was thinking that the plant was the one growing on the north side of the carretera west of Ajijic. I got a cutting this morning of it. The leaves look identical but the flowers are different. The ones near the carretera have much smaller petals. Where did you see that plant? Yours looks quite similar to Barkleyanthus salicifolius which is listed as occurring here.
  6. I should know what it is but don't. When I went shopping today I took my pruners along but I didn't find any close to the road. Tomorrow I'll find a branch. I don't think it is any of those mentioned so far.
  7. I am curious as to what difficulty your trees are having and what kind of fruit trees you have. If you post that information here someone might know the solution.

  9. The hot dogs are much better than the bbq beef sandwich. Their chicken melt sandwich is very good.
  10. Yes they water ski on the lake. Usually on the weekends and more so in the Spring/Summer. There are very few good places to launch boats. Yacht clubs in Chapala and La Floresta have ramps and memberships. There is a proper ramp in El Limon. A not so good boat launching ramp in Piedra Barrenada. You can park your trailer at those 4 for a fee. I don't know where the public ramp is at Jocotepec. After using your boat on the lake there are no proper docks to leave it at-you have to pull your boat back out.
  11. I have had the same experience as Xena. I never take my dogs to restaurants but I like to see well behaved pooches in restaurants. Sure beats noisy kids.
  12. 20 doctors!! Are you expecting major problems? Your records would be scattered all over the place with no one doctor having the complete picture.
  13. Cost $1,000 US/month! Ouch! Mine is more like $100.
  14. Yes what joke? A pool is essential here for me also.
  15. It depends how you look at it. For me it is much more civilized to be able to take dogs into restaurants and many other places. Uncivilized is not allowing dogs in restaurants. It has nothing to do with intelligence or class-maybe the opposite. If you don't like it complain with your wallet.
  16. Islander has the easiest route. If you continue on the periferico towards Chapala the traffic gets very heavy and the signage can be quite confusing. Best to get off the periferico as soon as possible (Colima exit onto Avenida Lopez Mateos) as the periferico can be very intimidationg as the traffic is usually heavy. Don't worry about the #54 as the signage for Colima is very clear and obvious. It is a breeze to go this route rather than via Chapala as you are quickly away from the heavy traffic and it is a much better road. After driving on Lopez Mateos which becomes # 15 for about 20 minutes
  17. The ATMS aren't serviced and stocked with money by HSBC but by a private company. Only the private company has access to the inside of the machine.
  18. If you don't want a cat around and don't want to use sticky traps the only effective thing left is snap traps. They have been used for many, many years in many places because they work. I've have found that cheese isn't any good as they can take it without setting off the trap. Peanut butter pressed onto the trigger works much better. Maybe a rat zapper would work. Moth balls, citrus peel, fabric sheets, etc. are all pretty ineffective. Also who wants the stink of moth balls around? Are you sure they are mice?
  19. I used to count my money as soon as it came out of the ATM. One time I was too slow counting and didn't remove my card fast enough from the machine so it took back my card and kept it.
  20. It looks like the lake level has peaked as the latest measurement shows it dropping. Peak about 1/2 meter above 2014 and 1 meter above 2013.
  21. Okay. I wonder if 200 minutes could also equal 200 pesos.
  22. Thanks. What are the advantages of having a plan?
  23. I was looking at Smart phones at the Telcel store in Laguna mall today and I'm confused. There are different plans and different cost structures. Can you do like you did with the dumb cell phones and just buy an amount of time every two months? What different options are there?
