  1. Ismat's is closed. The steel door is down, the sign is gone and there's a se vende sign in its place.
  2. USTVnow does not offer a free option as of a couple of weeks ago. The best that you can get without paying is a ten day trial. They blamed the change on the pandemic.
  3. OP is referring to Black Vultures. You can compare them with Crested Caracaras on the attached links. It is a common sight to see Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures congregating together in the eucalyptus trees in lower La Floresta. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black_Vulture/id https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Crested_Caracara/id
  4. Here is a link to the Lake Chapala Birders website. Click on newsletters for lots of information and galleries for some nice photos. They will be happy to add you to their once a month mailing list. https://chapalabirders.org/
  5. Birds that are nectar feeding , raucous, in pairs and the size of robins sounds like they are orioles. https://www.google.com/search?q=orioles+at+hummingbird+feeder&sxsrf=ALeKk00dcz2CuqxaShW3B7bq4rHJbQvNSQ:1588446046982&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjR4P_S7pXpAhUJVa0KHQ5FDzYQ_AUoAXoECBcQAw&biw=1366&bih=625
  6. His name is Joel Galliano, from Galliano, LA. It is south of New Orleans on Bayou Lafourche near the Gulf of Mexico. He has been a chef in New Orleans, Mexico and other places. He is an inventive and talented cook. His new place is worth a try. I enjoyed the food and will go back.

  8. I have one. It may be several days before I can meet you to deliver it. Let me know how it works out with bmh.
  9. The Santiago River flows from Lake Chapala to the Pacific Ocean. "The Grande de Santiago River (Spanish: Río Grande de Santiago)[3] is one of the longest rivers in Mexico, measuring up 433 km (269 mi) long. The river begins at Lake Chapala and continues roughly north-west through the Sierra Madre Occidental, receiving the Verde, Juchipila, Bolaños, and other tributaries. At La Yesca, the La Yesca Dam was completed in 2012 and the El Cajón Dam was completed downstream in 2007. Below El Cajón, the Aguamilpa Dam was completed in 1993, creating a reservoir covering a large part of the territory of the municipality of El Nayar in Nayarit. From Aguamilpa, the river descends to the coastal lowlands, passing by Santiago Ixcuintla and empties into the Pacific Ocean, 16 km (10 mi) northwest of San Blas, in Nayarit. The river is viewed by some sources as a continuation of the Lerma River, which flows into Lake Chapala." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grande_de_Santiago_River
  10. Sign up for USTVNOW. The game is on CBS and that is available on the free or pay subscription. You can view it on your device, or if you HDMI capability, you can connect your device to a TV. https://www.ustvnow.com/package
  11. It is across the highway from Ixtlahuacan and next to Agua Escondido. https://www.google.com/maps/place/RV+Trailer+Park+Chapala/@20.3574799,-103.1849888,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xc937fce437f685cd!8m2!3d20.3680269!4d-103.1804581
  12. I have had good service from Uber in Guadalajara.
  13. The tree is located south of the Telcel office at Centro Laguna.
  14. The Ajijic Fishing Club will meet on Monday, December 2 at 9:00 am. The location is Fonda Dona Lola. They meet on the first Monday of each month. There is bass fishing at multiple lakes within a half day's drive from Ajijic and Lake Chapala has bass, too. The fishing club is gauging interest in a peacock bass trip to the Amazon or Panama or both. Here is a link to their website. There is a link to the club's Facebook page on the website. https://drhook50hp.wixsite.com/ajijicfishingclub

  16. Thank you for your suggestion. The opening is to a stairway. Maybe I could use a dowel or more hangers to stabilize the connection of the bamboo headers. Any other suggestions?
  17. I am looking for a bead curtain 54" wide and 72" high. I went to the place across from Pancho's Deli in Riberas that has them on display. The ones that they have there are 36" wide and 72" high which will not work for the opening that I have. The standard size ones are 800 pesos each. If they build one 54" wide, it will take three weeks and cost 2000 pesos. Does anyone have any suggestions where there might be bead curtains the size that I need? Thank you in advance.
  18. I did not stop and ask questions. I made an assumption based on the restaurant having the same name as Ismat, owner of Gossip's.
  19. I saw a sign that said Ismat's Fried Chicken and Burgers this afternoon. It is located on Revolution around the corner from Scallions, where Taqueria Los Fabian used to be. I saw some people working there, but I did not stop to ask questions. Looking forward to trying it when they open.

  21. I was having lunch in Ixtlahuacan and met a couple of RVers. They have a fifth wheel travel trailer and stay at the RV Park Chapala. It is located across the highway from Ixtlahuacan and next Agua Escondida. I have not been there and cannot vouch for it. Check out their website and location. https://trailerparkchapala.webnode.mx/ https://www.google.com/maps/place/RV+Trailer+Park+Chapala/@20.3574799,-103.1849888,14.96z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xc937fce437f685cd!8m2!3d20.3680269!4d-103.1804581
  22. This is a link to the Clay County, SD Treasurer's office. Scroll down to form MV608 (application for title). That is the form that you need to complete in order to start the process. You MUST use an address in the USA. For assistance, call or email the helpful personnel at their office. http://www.claycountysd.org/treasurersoffice.cfm
  23. It seems to me (and I could be very, very wrong) that Canadians say "sorry" in situations where someone else may say "excuse me" or "pardon me" or "perdón". In the part of the world that I'm from, it is considered a welcome nicety.
