  1. I don't know anything about the store but there is a custom furniture store on the corner of the carretera and Juarez you might try before driving to Guad.
  2. Just a heads up. Pacifico seafood is gone from La Huerta on the west end but Morones meat market has moved over into part of their old space and besides meat he purchased their freezers and is now selling the shrimp and packaged frozen seafood that Pacifico carried. He's a young guy trying to make a go of it. His dad owns La Huerta Market. Great family. Please try to support him.
  3. The point I was trying to make is the problems that could arise in the mask wearers who wear them for hours on end. A filthy mask really isn't a risk to others. I get the point that it is thought a mask will protect people from exposure to a virus.
  4. Since most doctors and nurses wear a mask for only several hours at a time and for the protection of the patient they then throw them away. The problem arises when you have workers in the stores and children in schools wearing them for hours at a time, sometimes under their nose or chin then it becomes a problem. Plus, do they throw them away or wash them? Not everyone is as vigilent as you are.
  5. Something to think about. “A lie doesn't become truth, wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good, just because it's accepted by a majority.” ― Booker T. Washington
  6. I wonder what the graph would look like now since this one is over a year and a half old.
  7. You're right. Face diapers are disgusting and I wear one as little as possible since they are pretty useless anyway, not to mention a great medium for bacterial growth.
  8. From what I have read the mod is posting facts. They are obviously not facts you agree with but remember there are two sides to every coin. Just because someone has a different opinion from you doesn't mean they are belittling or mocking anyone.
  9. I think it was around 5 pounds and had two ribs. I slow roasted it in my electric oven. Two of us actually got 3 meals out of it and I paid 707p. This was at the end of December and they also had a couple of thick slices but I wanted the roast.
  10. I buy their Sonoran vacio which is consistently good and bought a Sonoran prime rib that was excellent. Guess I need to try the ribs. They also carry USDA beef but for 3x the price!
  11. I have a car that has Mexico City plates. Does anyone know if I can do the emission testing in Guadalajara?
  12. What I was told on a tour several months ago that there were two tiers, one at $4,000 and the other $10,000. The $4,000 was not refundable and included breakfast only on the plan. With the $10,000 plan you could sell it to someone else or upon death transferred to the family. It included a certain number of meals per week which was breakfast, lunch or dinner. Both included some other benefits (?) but I don't remember because I was definitely not interested.
  13. It looks like La Pueblita has been pretty much at a standstill for several months. The casitas appear to be pretty much finished but the apartments are a very long way from completion.
  14. There must be because I smell smoke and can't even see the south side of the lake.
  15. I went to Walmart yesterday afternoon and the big sign out front only says no one under 15 allowed and no mention of over 60. I was also turned down two days ago at the Oxxo in La Canacinta but went to the one in Ajijic close to Prisa Paint and no problems.
  16. It was my regular run to the same Oxxo out west since it opened a number of years ago and they know me. Sad state of affairs. My birthday is tomorrow and I will be 59! 😜
  17. I was just denied entry to an Oxxo!!! This is ridiculous. It's called discrimination. This won't stop anything!
  18. Thanks for the link. I have filled out the forms but now I am having trouble with the payment page. I want to pay for 3 years. I clicked on the Derecho de Residente Temporal (DRT) but it only allows me to pay for one year. All of the choices for choosing tramite cost appear to be the same. What do I do now to obtain the form to pay the correct amount?
  19. Can you give me the web address to the form I need to fill out for temporal. I went to Phoenix last year to obtain the first year and now I need to renew for the additional years.
  20. Thanks to all of you for your input. I tried Pablo's Garage first. I walked over and we talked to someone through the locked gate. He said they were busy so they don't answer the phone. We left our number and no one called back. While getting an overnight charge at LTH I noticed the shop that Happy Jillin recomended right next door. We talked to Moises and arranged to come back the next morning with the car with the charged battery. What an excellent recommendation by Happy Jillin!!! Sure enough it was a shredding alternator belt. Two replaced belts later and back on the road. What a really nice experience and will definitely use AutoFix and Moises in the future.
  21. I'll try the cell. We walked up there yesterday because the land line isn't answered. We were told that they were very busy. We told the worker (through a locked gate) what we needed and he said he would have Pablo call us. So far, no returned call. I guess he is too busy. Next step, take the battery out get it charged or replaced so we can drive it to another mechanic for the alternator problem. We will try the other suggestions for mechanics given on the other thread. Thanks all for you help.
