  1. Oh, Maggie, let's find out where to actually GO to dump some post-menopausal angst on these mother****ers!!!!!!
  2. Thanks. I have had the pleasure of being in Capula several times for their feria. Extraordinary! There is a store in Tonala called Mis Amores with a good selection too. I might get in a mood to go there if a couple of riders wanted to join in..... Love the "special box" too....a gift you get twice!
  3. A friend from the distant past is coming for a visit next month. She's never been to Mexico. I would like to give her a really nice Catarina as a gift. Where to look for one? Hopefully near the Lake, not Tonala or Guad. TIA.
  4. My dog does not have fleas or ticks. He wears a Seresta collar year round to prevent them. He does not go to restaurants and he will always be under my table, and you won't.
  5. Suit yourself, Mudgirl....I always do! And if myself wants to eat at a restaurant in Mexico, outside, in the summer, I go prepared. Or I stay home and eat on my terrace,where the table is always clean (and has a dog underneath!)
  6. Well, I was looking forward to info on St.Remy, but glad you enjoyed La Terraza!
  7. Perfect remedy for flies at table: Peel a dozen tangerines (or oranges at this time of year) Save the fruit for a salad. Soak the peels in white vinegar for two weeks. Put the liquid in a spray bottle and spray the table surface. You will NOT be bothered by flies for hours. When you see even one, re-spray and you're good for the rest of the night. So easy, so cheap! An afterthought: wonder if it would work as a body spray ? If you have O + blood, like me, you will try ANYTHING! We are the caviar of the mosquito world!!!
  8. Thanks, Go Solar, that's the info I need. I got the original from a mid-size key shop in Bucerias, Nayarit, NOT a dealer or big shop at all. I use it to keep my car locked but with ac running for my little dog. And a club in action, too. Much more necessary in the heat of the beach! Somehow in the last week the ac key vanished. Hard to figure, since I have to have it to get in the car coming from a store or restaurant. Took the car to Lake carwash figuring they would find the key in some crevice or sneaky place, but no. Leave the dog at home? It's not my home, I am dogsitting four dogs who have some habits I'd prefer my dog not pick up. I'll see which key guy my mechanic here recommends and head there tomorrow! Thanks so much, both for your advice and for not judging my admittedly crude solution to my problem! Don't have an Amazon account but with your info I should be able to muddle through this!!!
  9. NOT an ignition key! A key that will open a locked door but NOT start the car....any info appreciated!
  10. How about getting a TMobile android phone to ring here? Used to work great....
  11. The totopos are cut-up corn tortillas, fried. But the red salsa.....of my dreams! The green salsa just a bit over my preferred heat level, but manna from Heaven for someone else!
  12. Indeed! Best Tex-Mex IHave had in forever! Best salsa, best guacamole, best everything!
  13. Just bought a Mexican nebulizer for medication I need....the assembly directions are all in Spanish, which I speak fairly well, but not the terms for the different parts, and there are many. Also, this for me would be a challenge in English, since if it plugs into the wall, it is NOT my friend! Who can put this machine together for me? Happily pay....
  14. A big outdoor table in the shade, covered in newspapers, piled high with big, bright red mudbugs and corn and potatoes, some jalapenos, garlic butter....and oh, the joy of suckin' them heads!!!! What if we could have ALL of these things at one huge died-and-gone-to-heaven food event!!!! Love to try some of that Canadian duck.....
  15. Oh, bdlngton, I may be WRONG for you, but I am oh so RIGHT for me!!!!
  16. Fresh, perfectly boiled blue crab! Y'all can keep the Dungeness.....
  17. You are a gracious gentleman, rafterbr!
  18. Bless you! Grandma Nini had a small chicken n' egg business on the Galveston Highway in the 40's and 50's and we either grew, raised, or caught every single thing we ate... I thought we were rich because we had a cow, and Nini taught me to churn butter. My heart will always be in the garden....
  19. Thank you! You shoulda seen 'em full of the best fried chicken on the planet!
