    How can the results of a poll, taken every year by lakeside residents be " a bit of nonsense"?

    It was a peculiar poll. Many good dentists weren't on that list-something was wrong with their metrics. I have been here for years and have big ears and never heard of this poll. Just a bit of advertising maybe.

    Dr Candy is possibly the worst dentist in town.. and I’m saying this from personal experience.  if all you require is a cleaning OK. anything else get out of there as fast as you can...

    Dr Haro or Dr Brarragan both great dentists.. My preference is Dr Haro.

    I had a cleaning at Dr. Candy and it the worse I have ever had.

    Because I am a renter, when I renew mt driver's license, I need proof of residence. I go to the 2nd floor of city hall in Chapala. Go upstairs. Directly across from the stairs on the 2nd floor there is a desk outside an office. Present all the regular documents (2copies) and an infantile photo. Return same day and they will give you a proof of residency letter.   

    Thanks but I live in Jocotepec

  4. My bank has suddenly decided I need something that shows where i live.(plus other things like Fiel, CURP, RFC #-I have these latter 2).  The problem is that I rent so utilities are not in my name. The landlord did not want to do a lease and he is gone for many months.  The phone here is in his exwife's name. If I could track her down maybe she would change it to my name. There must be a way to deal with this but I can't think of it.

    "Goodbye to long weekends: AMLO announces reform so that historical dates are celebrated on their date.

    By Political Animal 

    February 5, 2020

    President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced this Wednesday that he will propose reforms so that from the next school year the holidays are commemorated on their day and thus end the long weekend holiday.

    López Obrador explained that the objective is to recover the historical memory of the country and said he is aware that the issue will generate controversy.

    "At the end of the current school year, I am going to propose reforms to return to the historical dates, so that the day on which a historical date is commemorated, of course the most important, the transcendent, is a holiday," he said in a morning conference.

    Read: Long weekends, Easter and holidays: These are the holidays of 2020

    He anticipated that some dates that would be holidays on the same day and would not be changed to Monday as is currently done would be the commemoration of Independence, on November 20, which is the Anniversary of the Revolution, and on February 5.

    “It is unfortunate that in recent times these civic, historical dates have been forgotten. The children talk about the bridges, but not why they do not attend school, on a Friday or Monday, it turns out that today, February 5, nobody remembers that the Constitution was promulgated. For us it is a great event of historical relevance, "he said."

    The current school year started on August 18th.

    So that may be in effect now.

    No.  16 de Septiembre is like US holidays; while many become Monday Holidays, those with specific celebratory dates, do not.  I.e., the 4th of July, Veterans Day (the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year).  I'm sure Canada and other countries have similar holiday schemes, where some are Mondays and others are set in stone.

    • January 1 - New Year's Day (Año Nuevo)
    • First Monday in February - Constitution Day (Día de la Constitución). Originally observed on February 5, now observed on the first Monday in February.
    • Third Monday in March - Birthday of Benito Juarez (President of Mexico from 1858 to 1872). His birthday was March 21, 1806, but the holiday is observed every year on the third Monday in March.
    • May 1 - Labor Day (Dia del Trabajo). Worker marches and demonstrations in cities across the country can create traffic jams and generally slow things down..
    • September 16 - Mexican Independence Day (Día de la Independencia)
    • Third Monday in November - Revolution Day (Día de la Revolución). The Mexican Revolution began on November 20, 1910, but the revolution is commemorated every year on the third Monday in November.
    • December 25 - Christmas Day (Navidad)


    You are probably right but I will check several banks tomorrow.
