    Café La Montaña

    It is my understanding that there is now no smoking. Pets are allowed.

    Oaxacan handmade bed spreads?

    I purchased one in front of Superlake this past Friday afternoon. It is reversible and I really like the pattern of butterflies and sunflowers. I think the different colors of green and cream are really pretty. They had different patterns with reds, rose, blues, browns, oranges, etc. It will be a perfect weight for spring and summer. I paid $650 for a full size. Maybe paid too much considering you saw them for $600 for a queen size ... but I don't like to haggle unless I think a price is way out of line. I didn't think the equivalent of $35 U.S. was out of line even if it was machine made which I have no idea whether it is or not. I just know I like it a lot.

    RR Crossing on Lagos de Moreno north bypass

    If anything it was worse a week ago than it was a couple of years ago.
  4. Natasha, I have not given our dogs heartworm medication because I was advised by one of the highly recommended Vets that it was not necessary as heartworm was not a problem here. If that has changed, he has not informed me of such. I will be asking his advice. I do know they have to be tested first, otherwise they can become very sick and possibly die.

    Could you please tell me how much it costs for a couple to join? If we join now in December will our membership be good until next December or do we need to wait until January to enjoy a full year of membership?
  6. You are right, nothernewbie! Thanks
  7. Ezzie, what are the symptoms? Is this anything like heartworms that dogs get from ticks? We have been advised not to give the heartworm medication here but maybe we should?
  8. feewee, I sent you a PM with recent experience
  9. We used an ace bandage but the thunder jacket was much more convenient. It worked for us even after they started going off. As soon as the jacket was put on and a little bit of loving and they were fine.

    knitting needle

    Not sure but have seen on this board that there is a knit shop a couple of doors down from Diane Pearl's in Ajijic. She is on the corner of Colon and Ocompo and the knit shop is west of her store on Ocampo.

    Using Mexican Cell phone

    I know this has been discussed on this board before because at the time I was smart enough to write it down. However, I was not smart enough to remember to bring the instructions with me. I have tried to do a search but there are pages and pages with the different search words that apply to multiple subjects. So, if someone would be so kind as to let me know how to use my cellphone in the States to call home I would truly appreciate it. And, yes I do have the North American Plan Thanks.
  12. Could someone please tell me how to call to our house in Ajijic from our Mexican cell phone when in the States?
  13. We are driving to the States and want to use the relatively new Guadalajara By-Pass Road. I did a search and found that it is open, however, Sunshine1 had made the following post and no one answered: "a little bit confused - just went for a trial drive on the macrolibramiento as leaving for Canada next week. Not sure , when you see the sign that says Mexico Cuota and Morelia 15D is there where you exit, or do you follow the Zapotlanejo sign - it seemed the arrow was pointing in the same direction as cuota sign off to the right, but when we asked one of the workers there, he said to veer left and follow the sign that said Tepatitlan........HELP" Could someone that has used this road please answer this question. We will be going to Matehuala first and then on to Laredo.
  14. The videos are panning too fast for me ... makes me dizzy to watch.
