  1. Zero, I'd say. Without massive testing how would anyone know what the situation really is.
  2. I've been baking our bread for a couple of years now and didn't anticipate a shortage of flour. All purpose seems to be in reasonable supply but not integral. I guess we'll be switching to white bread!!
  3. Been looking all over for the local whole wheat flour and can't find it anywhere. Superlake, Pancho's, Walmart, Soriana all out. Anyone seen any? Anywhere?
  4. Superlake carries SAF yeast. Been using it for several years now. It is excellent. I empty the package into Lock n Lock or Snapware container and store it in the freezer. It will last for at least a couple of years if you don't use it all up before that.
  5. I second Zeb's recommendation for Breadtopia. Been a fan for years and made a number of the recipes on their very detailed site. I've developed my own take on one of their no knead recipes that works just great for me.
  6. Dr. Haro's specialist from Guadalajara did my implant including bone graft and it's perfect
  7. It's usually on one of the end cabinets in the section that has cheese, sausage, charcuterie, and a lot of other stuff. Right opposite the meat counters.
  8. Tim Horton's may be here eventually. They are in Monterrey and Saltillo already.
  9. I have had two procedures done buy Dr. Monica at Dermika. The first for a melanoma was done locally. It was surgically removed, there was a cut of approximately 3 inches involved and two years later the scar is virtually invisible. The second was for a different type of skin cancer and was done with laser in the GDL office which you can walk to from Costco or the Galerias shopping area. I highly recommend her.
  10. For a very small job but must be well done. Anyone have a recommendation with contact info. Thanks.
  11. I have grown Hawaiian papaya here in Ajijic. Brought the seeds in from NOB. Unfortunately, after several successful crops, a strong north wind snapped my tree. Now I eat Mexican papaya but don't find it as good as Hawaiian.
  12. Hate to disagree with you Sonia, but here is exactly what happened to my wife and I at the Laredo INM office. Went in with our passport, RP card and FMM. The agent asked why we were there. We told him and he said "Residente Permanente....no es necesario". He was an older experienced agent. We shrugged and left.
  13. We've had it for a week and are getting between 45 and just over 50mb
  14. Is there a local supplier of pickling cucumbers?
  15. In Canada, if you are a non resident for tax purposes, you are a non resident period. I have personally spoken with a snowbird neighbour who attempted to drive his Mexican plated car across the Canada/US border and was turned back because he was deemed a resident, i.e. he had never filed for non residency. Canada is no different from most other countries in this regard. You have be resident or non resident, you cant be both. I have driven my Mexican plated car in Canada because I established non residency 25 years ago and have maintained that status ever since.
  16. It was actually a large group of people from a couple of condominio. And the mayor at the time was openly biased against the random construction of these types of towers. He was actually working with the crew at the top of the tower to dismantle it.
  17. Jackie changed our filters and light just a few weeks ago. Why do you H2Ole is defunct?
  18. 29th Nov or Oct. I heard Oct. I also heard Hotel Monte Carlo
  19. Baloney. I have SP and I'm not a citizen.
  20. Costco Galerias currently has a large wine cooler as a special offering. Don't know the brand or cost but holds more than 100 bottles in 2 zones
  21. I've driven this both ways twice. Listen to Rick S. and Mud Girl and ignore the others. As Rick S suggested, take the Mariposa crossing near Nogales. Crossing at Columbia/Laredo when coming from Vancouver is just nuts in my opinion. And, in 11 years of driving in Mexico including multiple trips accross the border at four different border crossings on various routes, I've never paid mordida and only been asked twice, both right here in Ajijic.
