  1. I did not know he died. He certainly made Ajijic a fun place to be starting with my Club Hidalgo. Very talented man. May he RIP.
  2. Getting tired of Shaw service. Has anyone had good consistent Internet Tv operating with Ilox fibre optic. I’ve tried options before but got nothing but buffering. Also, I’m not a techie so would need someone to install and test their service.
  3. I know this topic has been covered before but I recall someone recommending a lady who lives in behind La Paz liquor store area. Anyone know of this or someone else who gives instruction?
  4. I know in the past this topic has come up but I recall someone recommending a lady that lives just behind La Paz liquor store. Anyon3 recall?
  5. Great a three day weekend. I’m getting tired of 7 day weekends. Change is good. Lol
  6. Not sure what is happening at Le Paz. I’ve been buying Mexican cigars there for several years with a vanilla aroma. First the ran out of them from Veracruz ( both with aroma then natural ). I switched to Don Toribio first with vanilla then natural. Sold out of both again. In fact the whole cabinet is almost empty. Nobody in the store can tell me what’s happening. They keep promising more soon but it’s been months now. Desperately looking for any alternative.
  7. Does anyone know of a good Pediatrist in Ajijic?
  8. I will come over around 9:00 am tomorrow if that is ok. I’ve been able to access all my messages to you but not the one with your phone number. Could you repeat that for me please and I’ll see you tomorrow morning as close to 9:00 as I can.
  9. I do have the cue and case in my possession now. Regardless of you original post for a cue and case, I was incorrect in telling you it was a double cue and case. My apologies for my mistake. I’m also trying to get the price reduced to $800. pesos but I’m not sure she will accept. Notwithstanding, if $1,000. Is okay I can deliver the cue to you early tomorrow morning if you give a a specific address. I’m not familiar with Chapala so an address with closest intersection would be helpful. Bob Chambers
  10. I really appreciate your weekly data as we are @bout to return to Ajijic on the 18th. Curious though, do you have access to number of deaths?
  11. Thank you Val for answering my question. We are returning to Ajijic from Canada on October 18th and will automatically self quarantine. We were wondering why we hadn’t heard of any Canadian or American via FB/messenger or texts from friends who stay all year. With our age bracket, it was just unlikely that absolutely nobody from NOB had tested positive but good to hear the numbers are very low. Thank you again.
  12. We’ve been watching closely and in touch with many friends still in Ajijic and have yet to hear of a single positive case for a North American. Can that be true given our age bracket? We are flying back to Ajijic on October 18th and are encouraged by what we are NOT hearing. We will self quarantine for 14 days automatically, possible exception to buy food but wearing masks and go very early to avoid crowds.
  13. It’s commonly used for men to describe how short they want their haircut.
  14. Fully intend to be back mid October as usual unless circumstances dictate otherwise. Fingers crossed. The situation here in Ontario is pretty well under control with daily cases consistently under 200 for several straight days. Businesses are cautiously re-opening except for Bars/restaurants unless you can offer patio service with proper spacing. Had my first haircut in 4 months last night. Hairdresser asked me which number I used and I told her I couldn’t remember so she used a lawnmower. Then I went home and weighed myself. 😂😂😂😂🍷🍷
  15. Both borders ( mex-us and us-can ) remain closed except for essential services. However, when you are simply returning to your home country they have been just passing you through. We had friends Drive their RV back in the last month.
  16. So sad. Just discovered I know the young mother and have know her for years. Absolutely tragic.
  17. Not really. La Paz was the only place I could find with variety and price. Tiny store in Plaza beside Black n White coffee shop sells some but more expensive. They might sell some if you knocked on their door as they live in behind. I’m back in Canada now just finishing up my quarantine and smoked my last one yesterday. 😂😂😂😂
  18. Another couple on our flight live in Windsor. They had to fly to Toronto from Detroit and take a shuttle bus back to Windsor. They wouldn’t allow her daughter to drive into the US from Windsor to pick them up. Quarantine protocols would also not allow contact between them.

  19. Thanks MC. I’m not very smart when it comes to posting good websites. I want people to watch this video as with all the panic going on and misunderstanding about masks and there purpose, I felt this video was so enlightening.
  20. OK..... I highly recommend everyone go to YouTube and type Protect Yourself against Covid-19 by Dr. David Price. It’s about 20 minutes long but VERY informative and helps you to stay relaxed about this issue.
  21. Mike I should have added the quarantine is more rigid than self isolation. Because we were traveling we could not have contact with anyone including hotel staff so shifting our daughter to the hotel was the most efficient. We can actually cook etc while Robin can pick up meals for herself. The last five days in Ajijic we were self isolating as part of the social distancing. We talked to neighbours from a distance with no handshaking etc. With quarantine we are avoiding everyone and wipe doorknobs, fridge door handles and surfaces wearing our masks even in the house. Yesterday morning I watched a video made by a pulmonary specialist in a New York hospital as we speak. It was by far the most detailed explanation of what to do and why to absolutely avoid getting this virus. Masks and hand washing are absolutely key. I will try to figure out how to get it to this website.
  22. Sorry Mike. I see my answer to your PM got put on the regular site.

  23. Mike. We booked Delta vis Atlanta which got changed the day before we were leaving and had to rebook. This time the first leg of the flight became Aeromexico to Mexico City, then Delta to Detroit and Toronto. All legs of the flight were excellent ,on time and very low traffic. In Guadalajara, they took my wife’s temperature but not mine which surprised me. Mexico City airport was almost empty if you can imagine that. Check in and Customs workers were all wearing masks/gloves as expected. Same all the way through until we hit Toronto. as We exited in Toronto Pearson, we were met by customs officers way down the corridor to ask us about where we were coming from, did we have any symptoms and were reminded about the 14 day mandatory quarantine. They gave us a pamphlet with instructions. We then proceeded to the actual customs and were through in about 5/10 minutes. Th3 last leg from Detroit to Toronto there were only 12 passengers on the whole plane and eight of those were from Ajijic. our kids drove two vehicles to the airport, met us on the shuttle bus lane at Pearson with the car running. We loaded our luggage, said hi to our daughter and son in law from about 8 feet and followed them back to our condo. We had planned initially to quarantine in a hotel as our youngest daughter rents our Condo but she was sent home to work.. we then sent her to the hotel for 14 days and we are in the Condo. We have absolutely no direct contact with family or neighbours. We go down to the lobby when our kids bring groceries. They leave the groceries inside the first set of doors then leave. We wave and retrieve our goodies. We wear our Ajijic José masks for our own protection which is primarily to Keep Your Hands off your face. we don’t go shopping ourselves not even to a Timmy Drive-thru so you know how serious that is for a Canadian Tim’s junky. We are Day 4 and will probably at some point head out to the parking lot just to walk for exercise and fresh air. If we see someone on our side of the sidewalk, we will cross to the other side or at least maintain a safe distance. So far so good . Also, we are not experiencing any symptoms at all. We have a thermometer and take our temperature daily. Hope this helps.
  24. My wife and I are back in Canada now under the mandatory 14 Day quarantine but would like to hear about the situation in Mexico but Ajijic in particular. We have many Can/US/Mexican friends in Ajijic we worry about. Does anyone have access to a website that would gives us local details, not just rumours?
