  1. Has anyone found Monk Fruit sweetener?? I don't like the aftertaste of Stevia and read thaqt Monk Fruit is also natural but with less aftertaste. I can buy thru Mercadolibre but is very expensive, or order from US cheaply but have it take a long time to arrive. Any help appreciated.
  2. I have had the same experience with Wal-Mart chicken and ribs and eggs, all smelling spoiled when just purchased. Their produce is often nasty also. I still go there but only for a few things I cannot get elsewhere.
  3. Just sent you a message, SGMike. Thanks.
  4. Does anyone know of a Mexican company that tests for toxic mold and micotoxins in houses to isolate whether they are there and identify the type?? These businesses exist north of the border, and kits can be ordered to sample and send to labs, but I am wondering if there is anything like that here. Thanks for any help.
  5. No one mentioned the Pollito Deli 9 across the street from 7-11 (just south of the Pemex) in Chapala. We think their fried chicken is better than Tony's. Haven't tried Josy's though...and want to!! We do love fried chicken.
  6. FYI, there is ALSO an authorized Emissions Testing Center in Los Cedros, about 5 minutes north of Ixtlahuacan, or 15-20 minutes north of Chapala ... much closer than Guadalajara. Cost is $250 pesos. We got a sticker there just today. It is called AutoServicio Martinez -Techmart. Tel (376) 762-1676. Good mechanics, large covered and well equipped shop, also with computer analysis.
  7. I have milk kefir (called bulgaros here) and water kefir (called tibicos here). Both are super high in good things, but they multiply and I periodically get too much. If the OP has trouble finding healthy seeds, I can split mine.
  8. Have you already gotten rid of your egg poacher? We used to use ours all the time, but somehow in the move, some of the little cups got lost. If you still have it, how much did you want for it?? Thanks!

  9. In my experience, and one of the things I love about Lakeside, is that there is little separation among the generations. I personally know a number of people whose 30-something "kids" live with them and they all frequently go places together. I know of no particular place where younger people gather. A VERY young crowd (like 15 to 25) seems to hang out at Wings Army some nights. I am in my 30s, and except for special one-time events such as concerts, etc., I know of no such place. It is all pretty much a mix. Oh, there used to be a Young Women's Club for those under 40...or maybe it was 50 (??), but I don't know it it is still around. You could email mexamigos@prodigy.net.mx for info about it though. The suggestion for El Barco was a pretty good one, unless you don't like the bar scene. Also, there are quite a few under or near 40s who go to La Tasca when the Tall Boys are playing (usually Fridays, I believe) because they play dance music. They ARE out there, and their number is increasing. Just mingle here and there and you'll find each other.
  10. I have used Filemaker for over 10 years for all sorts of projects. No guarantees, but I might be able to help.
