  1. Does anyone know he office hours for the San Antonio location?
  2. We received ours a few days ago and so did my mom.
  3. So sorry to hear. Condolences to family and friends. Rest in Peace.
  4. We have never gotten this letter from SS. We have a US address and our benefits are deposited in our US bank account. My husband does receive a similar letter from his pension fund yearly.
  5. We bought thermals a couple of years back in Costco. My husband uses them here when we watch movies at night. I bring them to the States when we visit the east coast in the winter.
  6. Mike called us this week. He speaks English well. The calls were about 3 hours apart. The first time he told my husband he wanted to visit.(He doesn't know where we live). The next time I answered and said "look we don't know you so stop calling". Not sure of his scam since he doesn't ask for money.
  7. We have a gas fireplace that we use occasionally at night when we watch movies. We also have a portable propane heater when it's colder. Our bedroom faces the west so it stays warmer than our other rooms. We don't use a heater in there but do add an extra blanket. We keep our ceiling fan on.
  8. I didn't realize that you were buying name brands. I know that they can be very expensive. Brand names mean a lot to teens. Nice of you to go the extra mile.
  9. I think Al Meraj in Guadalajara has a larger menu than Magnolias. Both have good food.
  10. We also like Al Meraj in Guadalajara. We usually go once a month.
  11. We are very happy with the Mexican health care here. We are originally from New York.
  12. That's what I was thinking. The most expensive shoes I have seen there are usually 699 pesos or so. When I buy for kids I go to the many shoe stores in the area.
  13. They don't sell Blue Bell ice cream anymore.
  14. The Magnum raspberry chocolate ice cream is not a bar. It's a pint. I looked up the ingredients. It contains dairy.
  15. My husband likes La Lechera vanilla. It might be made by Nestle. I like the new Magnum flavor Chocolate Raspberry. Raspberry ice cream with a dark chocolate shell.
  16. Two reasons that I can think of. Pink is usually associated with girls and red sheets may bleed onto other colored sheets. Just my two cents.
  17. There is a small fabric store in Chapala. Drive to Chapala and make a left turn onto the main street. Make a right turn at the bus station. The store is on the next corner on the right side. There is also a fabric store on the highway to Guadalajara on the right side. Sorry I can't give better directions. I have never been there but I have seen it.
  18. If you want to tip then tip if you don't want to then don't. It shouldn't matter who does and who doesn't. Tipping is not customary in Europe but if the service is good we give something.
  19. We tip 10 pesos when they wash our windshield. They have never washed the back. My father worked for tips and so did I so I know what it's like.
  20. We order from Costco online quite a bit and their delivery is great.
  21. I think there's a store in the group of stores where Superlake is. Just to the west.
  22. I heard that they were going to put in a light with an arrow but who knows.
  23. We're into comfort so we furnished our house with items from Liverpool, Tutto Pelle, IB Furniture and a furniture factory store in Ocotlan. There are many out there. We also had our dining room set made by Muebles Rusticos. They used to be in Riberas but have since moved. I think they are on the road east of Chapala.
