  1. I used to patronize Canela's Cafe, then the burrito place that closed. There's a farmacia there now. On the other end is the piroshki place and a plastic surgeon in between. They also rent rooms. They have never charged me so I guess I've been lucky.
  2. I don't pay for parking when I patronize a business there.
  3. One of my neighbors had a Canadian plated car that she donated to Cruz Roja. It did take several weeks to finalize. This was in the last 2-3 months. She now has a car with Mexican plates. All of this was accomplished without her leaving Chapala. I do not know the details of the donation.
  4. Luis is the guy in the photo on the right in the red boat. He is a fishing guide and he owns the pet store on Zargoza in Chapala. You can get in touch with him there. A friend of mine has caught a ten pound and an eleven pound three ounce bass in Lake Chapala. The largest one that I have caught was six pounds. Someone that has not caught a big bass before may be jealous and denigrate this great sport fish.

  5. Dr. Ernest Codman originated the Codman's Pendulum exercises for patients that have had shoulder surgery. The exercises are designed to be used as the first post-operative treatment to help prevent seizure of the joint during healing. I had shoulder surgery in 2002 and the exercises were prescribed for me shortly after release from the hospital. Dr. Codman was born in 1869.

    The point is that it's a very good restaurant, quail or not. Also wanted OP to know that the restaurant is only open on weekends.

    I have not been to Borrego Al Pastor El Cantarito in awhile and did not have quail there. It's worth a visit anyway and is only open on weekends.
  8. Here is a map with directions from Centro Laguna Mall in SAT to the address in the OP's first post. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Centro+Laguna,+Libramiento+A+Chapala,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+Ajijic,+Jalisco,+Mexico/Regional+Hospital+La+Barca,+Venus+84,+Col.+Fraccionamiento+del+Sol,+47910+La+Barca,+Jal.,+Mexico/@20.4272517,-103.0247466,11z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x842f414aa10778d1:0x6ee6c8566c4451dc!2m2!1d-103.2435627!2d20.2986507!1m5!1m1!1s0x842ec23e219c3219:0xc13e8daece2c7e79!2m2!1d-102.5537328!2d20.3005574!3e0
  9. Go to the cashier inside Soriana. Tell them that you want a prueba de antigeno. The cost is 489 pesos. Take your receipt to the modular building in the parking lot and they will administer the test. My results took 40 minutes, which they sent to my email.
  10. Thanks for the tips. No luck so far. Thank you, artsnob, for the kind offer. If it works out that I can get one from you at a later date, it would be much appreciated.
  11. Latest label? In 1836? Jim Bowie died during the insurrection against the Mexican government.
  12. Spoken like a true Insurrectionist ! Congratulations ! P.S. But, we already knew that.
  13. I copied and pasted a photo. I see the glass, so I went to a browser where I'm not signed in and then I see the odd link that you see. I'll try it another way. Hope this works. Don't think that I can talk my friend in the US into changing her glass collection.
  14. I want to replace a broken one for a friend in the USA. Looking Lakeside only, do not want to go to Tonala. It's about 4 1/2" high.
  15. I saw Nona's painted on the closed gate when I passed there today. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Revolución+88,+45920+Ajijic,+Jal./@20.2989542,-103.2551196,3a,75y,315.52h,90.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1st-OgEjI3_jMg-XTLzPfJ2w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x842f46ad7d0b8fb5:0x20b251f5cd0f3266!8m2!3d20.2990147!4d-103.2551776
  16. I drove by there Thursday and the gate was open, but there was no sign. Could not tell if it is a business or not.
  17. I have been there and enjoyed the food. The seating is outdoors with lots of shade.
  18. Here's the text from a bulletin that I received yesterday. In following the directives from the latest announcement from the governor of Jalisco, we would like to announce the plans for the Lake Chapala Society. Following the governor’s directive, we are postponing all activities at the Lake Chapala Society from January 16 for the rest of the month. The government has stated that businesses who violate these two week restrictions will be fined and further legal actions may be taken. For those who bought tickets to the sold out Branden and James Concert, we are rescheduling for a very special Valentine’s Day concert where the performers have something special in mind for us all. For Open Circle we will resume presentations the first Sunday in February, the presentations that were during this period will be rescheduled. We have always done our best to provide library services as best we can. However, the latest guidelines prevent us from opening the library for these two weeks, this applies to all other services at LCS as well. So, the office will not be open, all libraries will be closed, the services and all classes and activities will be postponed till February. As allowed by the governor’s statement, the café at LCS will be OPEN along with the main front gate and the ATM. The café will maintain regular hours. If you are not coming out, please support Ray at the Café and order meals for home delivery (to the central area of Ajijic). The Café phone number is 333-150-6940. All other activities at LCS will be postponed till February. If you are registered for a class, all registrations will be extended into February. Note that February 1st is a holiday here in Mexico, so we will restart our activities on February 2. We greatly value the health of our community and the support from all our members and participants. We know that while things are bleak right now, there are brighter days ahead for us all. We have great plans to enhance the value of your membership at the Lake Chapala Society and look forward to sharing our progress with you all. Please stay safe and when possible stay home for these two weeks. Very best wishes and good health to all. The Board of Directors Lake Chapala Society
  19. I used the WhatsApp contact procedure twice last summer, then again in November. Cancelling my service following the WhatsApp procedure was in November. I originally got directions on using the procedure from a notice on the gate at the Telmex office. Maybe they changed the procedure and have a notice of their new procedure on their gate at the office. Good luck.
  20. I have seen it at Toyo Foods in Guadalajara. Have not been there since last February, but it's a popular product. They had several varieties, some quite pricey. You can message them on Facebook or give them a call - 333-616-6511. https://www.facebook.com/toyofoodsmx /?ref=page_internal
  21. I recently used WhatsApp on 331 520 9621 to cancel phone and internet. I texted my phone number and a photo of the top part of my bill, explaining what I wanted to accomplish. A rep texted back in English and I answered a couple of questions. Later, the rep told me to bring my equipment to the gate of the Ajijic office. Upon arriving at the Telmex gate, I texted that I was there. A rep came out to receive my equipment and that was my experience in cancelling my Telmex account. I made sure to pay my bill before I contacted them. Also suggest that you wait until next week before contacting them. One last thing that you may need to know is that this took two days to accomplish. It takes awhile for them to get back to you. Good luck.
