  1. Costco still had Kirkland brand (Canadian) maple syrup when we were there in early October. (Lopez Mateos store)

    I missed it. In September and the first Monday in October that Costco didn't have it (the other Costco didn't have it in September twice also). They don't have it today also but Sam's Club does have it today-two brands.
  2. It was fairly windy and rainy but we’ve had worse-higher winds, more rain, and lightening. No lightening with this hurricane. Not a drop of water where it shouldn’t be except my pool is overflowing. No wind damage. The electricity was only off for a few seconds.

    I had cleaned out the gutter along my road and stocked up on supplies but it wasn’t necessary.

    A light rain has started this morning.

    A total of just over 4 inches of rain over 32 hours. We've had that much overnight before.

    Parts of my fraccionamiento were asked to leave their homes but it wasn't necessary.

  3. The bill this month is quite different.

    For consumption they give kwh for 4 months instead of two even though there were bills two months ago. For apoyo gubernamental they show 0 for both costo de produccion and aportacion Gubernamental instead of showing actual pesos amounts. When it comes to the actual amount owing it isn't as bad as you would expect as they have "A Cuenta" deduction. So one bill is 931 with A Cuenta of 502 equaling a total of 497. The other meter goes from 596 pesos to 278 with A Cuenta of 357 pesos. Quite confusing as to what is going on. Do others have something similar?

    It is a mystery as to what this "a cuenta" = on account) is.

  4. I have a Rival crockpot that you can have for free. It is round without a hotplate.

    Before I moved here I gave away my old rice cooker and bought a new Black & Decker one at Fabric de Francia in Guadalajara. This new one was too hot and made a mess of the counter whenever I used it so I gave it away and bought a combo rice cooker/crockpot at Costco. It works well so I don't need my

    Rival crockpot.

  5. Anybody know if the guy on Ocampo and / or Estudio Zaragosa are acceptable for Canadian passport photos. We are having a hard time getting Photo Luz as well but in the past he was the only recognized photographer for the Canadian passports

    The Canadian Consulate in Guadalajara recommends these two places Lakeside;

  6. Back to trash. Here in the Raquet Club we are having ongoing garbage pickup problems. Garbage pickup was missed for a week and contines irregularly. The new administration took over in Jocotepec at the start of October. Meanwhile the outgoing administration in Joco had apparently cleaned out the bank accounts and files so the garbage truck couldn't come to the Raquet Club as they had no money to buy gas for their trucks. The individual home owners in the RC pay taxes at Jocotepec (which should pay for garbage pickup) and the RC pays Joco extra for the same. In nearby San Juan Cosala they seem to be getting their garbage picked up regularly even they pay less to Joco.

  7. Didn't mean to touch on such a sensitive subject. Of course not everything on the north shore is Ajijic. But if someone were to ask me where I live I generally reply south of Guadalajara and north of Chapala. I've got better things to worry about.

    Deleted due to confusion.
