    Maybe monitors need to close this down.     It is getting personal and most of us don't want to read it.   Two immature people acting like children


    "THE THREAD"  of the 21st Century????:017:

    ...so after I pointed out that the topic was hijacked, there have been 15 more posts having NADA to do with food or restaurants  !!!!  What gives???

    My question is, why would you pick a thread with a hundred topics being discussed, to advertise your ineffectiveness???  :D:D:D

    Now when you lived in CA, did you ever eat wild game that was slow roasted by natural forest fires that occur so often. You have to get there while the ground is still smoldering but not to hot to walk on and before it cools off completely.  Never once saw a Cuban.

    I come to this board to give and receive information about this area. I do not need lectures or the incipient phrase "Google it". So much for YOUR diatribe!!! 

    Well then, just don´t Google it…………... as the previous post says, "pretty simple". 

    Stick with the sandwich and forget about the "lectures".  You just don´t get it.

    Is there any way some of you could PLEASE stick to talking about FOOD and RESTAURANTS in this thread???

    Most of us don't give a spit about your petty sniping. You're boring the majority.

    The offender doesn´t have a clue about personal sniping (without making a personal comment of my own)

    "Why should I Google it?"...…..either do or don´t without going into a diatribe about it!!!

    Keep consuming meat as a primary food source, rather than as a flavoring, and one day you will look in the mirror and see an emaciated old trainwreck.

    How much longer, on top of my 80 some years do I have to wait for this phenomenon to happen?  Many days, I eat only meat, and today was one of them.

    Oh well, I guess if I live long enough there might be a chance...…...:D:D:D

    Before you make that your option,  I  went 4- times last year only to wait for over an hour each time in a waiting room full of toddlers and sick people. I was never even remotely close to the top of the list any of the 4- times I gave up and left. I never had a flu shot because of this ineptitude on the part of the clinic.

    Free sounds good,  but by the time they get the vaccines it's often too late to get one from your physician or at LCS. And, the pandemic makes waiting foolish.

    Where did you go?

    For those of us who don't reside in your area lakeside, could one of you please give us a better idea of:

    How close is the shelter to the residences 1/2 kilometer, 2 kilometers, 500 meters? 


    Which is closer, 1/2 kilometer or 500 meters?  :017:      :D

    there are no boneless tomahawks. unless you think i should have said tbone or rib steak, because a tomawhak is alwaysa rib and they are alos about7 or 800p per kilo

    That´s up to 40.00 USD per kilo, can´t wait for you to tell me where you get that kind of a price. LOL

    Does it come with a bottle of wine?

    Of course there isn´t, I should have said the tomahawk as compared to a boneless cut.

    But isn't it true the Bank of America will pick up all fees if you have at least $250,000 US invested in their bank?  Oh, and  no, I do not have anything close to that in their bank. However, I believe it was in the 1990s when B. of A. purchased the Merrill Lynch Brokerage house where many of us have our retirement accounts. And, today, many of us have at least $250,000 in our combined B of A and Merrill Lynch retirement accounts and are no longer charged a fee.

    I know it is that way when wiring money from either my B of A or ML account to my Mexican bank. And I do get a preferred rate of exchange when I use an ATM machine which I try never to do. Because when I use an ATM, I get way too many 500 peso bills and not enough small change, which I would prefer to have and shop with.

    I think you are correct and surely there isn´t one person living here as a permanente that doesn´t have at least, $250,000 USD, in a Merrill Lynch account.

    I didn't either and I first came to Ajijic in 1997.  Well I just looked up the word for the first time. and Carretera means  "Highway" in Spanish.  And there are highways all over the world :) 


    Thanks for saving me giving una lección en español,  y además, calle is "street", all over México.   LOL

    that is dirt cheap. i cannot see how it would be any good even marinated. local butcher prices for a good strip or new york run 700-800

    The bone in tomahawk is always cheaper in price per kilo than the boneless cut.
