  1. Jokes at whose expense? You'all are welcome to my ex-father-in-law as I am sure he would be the perfect scarecrow.
  2. Adding to the personal : I heard (rumor, not confirmed) that there was a break-in and just about everything was "lifted." Not sure exactly when this happened, but certainly would be a crimp in the performance. We had comida there about a month ago. Thought service was a bit rusty. Food preparation was okay though not really the kind of food we choose to eat when dining out.
  3. Somehow missed this thread til now: Laurent's (for the food) La Una (both places), for the setting Hacienda del Lago (original, for the setting)
  4. That is sad news. Owner needs to find a higher valued use for the space, or put in and advertise an elevator to accommodate the impaired among us.
  5. For lunch or dinner: 1. St. Remy du Lac; 2. Jardin de Ninete; 3. Osteria del Arte; 4. Pale; 5. Tepetate Pien Thai
  6. Our team reside in Joco and are very reliable news reporters on any untoward events in their area. They said nothing Saturday morning which makes me think whatever happened west of us may not have been "in Joco" or on the carretera. Also checked Twitter = zippo.
  7. Cannot remember when I last purchased a round trip ticket for myself or other family members because we are rarely committed to more than roughly estimated return dates. Most trips are to U.S. and back, some for Residente Permanente but also for turistas. So far, no problem with Alaska, Volaris, Interjet, or American.
  8. Hah: My favorite places from the truly "old" and some not so old days" are gone. Presently, for breakfast: Chile Verde on Colon across from the taxi parking at the Plaza; & the new Cafe Montana in SAT, north side of carretera in the residential section east of Modelo. Lunch: St. Remy in So. West Ajijic; Pale` next to Sherwin Williams paint store on the carretera; Tepatate PienThai on Hidalgo; Jardin de Ninette north lateral across from Farmacia GDL; and,, the new, very rustic but intensely flavorful Forest Grill on the mountain-side lateral just west of Rio Bravo. Dinner: St. Remy; the Charcuterie at Barbara's Bazaar.
  9. There was a foto infraction for one of our vehicles on a day following one we knew had been in GDL. It was definitely our vehicle. At first we thought the date might be a data entry problem, but no. The vehicle had gone into a specialty repair shop lakeside the morning after we returned from GDL and the owner had taken the vehicle to GDL for no reason related to the repairs needed on the vehicle. Guess who doesn't do any further work on our cars?
  10. Whether using a Notario will fly is entirely dependent on the US based entity asking you to have the document notarized. Best to ask the requester whether they will accept notarization by a Notario in Mexico.
  11. Have I missed a separate post? Nothing here since November, 2017? Looks interesting. Definitely west of Pemex on the Lake (mauka) side of the carretera. Guess I need to just plunge in without recommenations. Happy New Year to one and all.
  12. By Catalan do you mean he is from Coyuca de Catalan in the state of Guerrero? Or, from the Catalan region of Spain? Or,?
  13. Using Strom (before they sold to White and become Strom-White) we broughta 53 foot trailers, piggy-backed another bunch of personally-important "stuff, and on our own later made two trips in a large SUV stuffed to the max. To this day we never regret the cost of bringing across the border those items we had carefully/thoughtfully selected over the years. Not every one chooses to invest so carefully in material goods, but if you do it is important to bring with you those items that make a difference in your daily life. There are ways of replacing the items you left behind or items that come to the end of their useful life, but in the meantime it is not so easy to replace the simple pleasures of prepping vegetables with an excellent knife or a bringing to life a lamb stew in a Le Creuset dutch oven or sinking into a DWR chair to read another book. BTW: I think Thomasville is available in Mexico City. thomasvillemexico.com.mx . Of course, if NAFTA fails, we may all be back to requesting friends and family to bring peanut butter, etc. with their visits.
  14. On Friday morning at Superlake, there were numerous packets of whole cranberries in one of the freezers at the west end of the bulk package aisle as well as a few in the open refrigerator section at the east end.
  15. In addition to writing in your Res. Perm or Res Temp at the top of the form, be sure to mark the purpose for returning to Mexico as "other" -- nothing else.
