    Beach House

    There's nothing wrong with Melaque or Barra de Navidad, either. I recently found this site online and tho I've not rented thru them yet, there are some interesting options for places all along the pacific coast. This link is for a specific property but will lead you into the site to find others. https://www.ownerdirect.com/melaque/vacation-rentals/76476 .

    Garbage pick up

    It's frustrating; if you put your trash bins out, the collectors break/mangle new ones within a couple of weeks, but if you just use bags, the neighborhood dogs spread the contents everywhere. And you can never anticipate when (or if) pick-up will occur; it was 10 at night when the truck came through SAT earlier this week so things got pretty ripe sitting all day in the sun!
  3. Dr. Haro will do dentures and it's quality work. Dr. Susana in Jocotopec also seems to have satisfied clients for dentures.

    Best mozzarella

    Can anyone recommend a good brand of mozzarella to buy locally? Ideally, I'd like to buy it already shredded but the ones I've tried were not what I think of as real mozza. The latest experiment wouldn't even melt when I tried to make pizza...
  5. Who does photo printing and enlargements locally here now? I know about Art House, but they can be expensive... Anyone else?

    Sprouts & Moringa

    The garden center 2 or 3 doors east of 7-11 in Riberas has seeds for Broccoli and mung bean sprouts, and I think there were a couple more types but wasn't buying today. Did pick up a pack of moringa seeds; having it fresh from the tree has to be better than the dried preparations... As far as I know, this is a first for Lakeside; I much prefer to do my own sprouting if possible. Now if only the seeds germinate, which is sometimes problematic, judging by past experiments with various veg and flowers...

    TeleCable / IZZI out in Chapala

    Lost my internet and phone Wed. about 3 p.m. but still had TV, which is useless to me but part of the package. (I agree about Netflix.) The office told me Thurs. they'd have everything back to normal that day but it didn't happen until sometime Sunday. Credit where it's due, they must have been working overtime to manage that; I didn't expect anything till at least Monday...
  8. Does anyone have contact info for the person who apparently does regular border runs and will bring down mail and packages for you? I had an email address, I thought, but my query came back "undeliverable." (transport@zipmypackages.com)

    Magnesium Bis-glycinate 200

    Dr. Mercola's website has a number of informative articles about magnesium. I understand there are various types, and some are absorbed more easily than others. I've come across references to magnesium citrate, mag. chloride & mag. theonate as being some of the better ones. I bought "Cloruro de Magnesio" at Prasad Health Foods across from El Toritos in 500mg tabs.

    Aspiring Potter

    Is there anyone at Lakeside who can supply clay/paint/glaze and fire small dishes and ornaments I make at home, perhaps assist with a little advice? Frank Howell, unfortunately, is not an option.

    Sugar replacement

    Does anyone know of a local source to purchase/order granulated Erythritol? Apparently it's widely used NOB and it's in so many of the recipes I want to make. I'm finding it horribly frustrating to determine equivalents for all the different sweeteners, or even to find the ones that don't have added sugars. The powdered ones don't have the bulk necessary for baking, either.

    They're in the frozen foods section, maybe 2nd or 3rd compartment across from the bread. I saw them again a few days ago and they're down toward the bottom, might be pushed toward the back. I didn't look closely but the first time they had pork and vegetable versions.

    Chillin, you nailed it. I can vouch for the virtues of Jicama - I use it in my gyoza, diced very small, and in larger slices in all my stir-frys instead of water chestnuts; it works perfectly. Ukiyo, just give us a heads-up when you're coming this way in a few months, and we'll see if we can pull a group of students together for you!

    Ukiyo - Maybe you'll give us a class on sushi when you come? I'm sure you'd have lots of people interested. I've learned to cook lots of things here out of desperation because they simply weren't available otherwise; still can't get enough good Asian food...

    Sichaun Cuisine

    Thanks so much for this link; I didn't know about it either. I get hardly any American TV and I've missed seeing these shows. Been in shock all weekend after the news on Friday and the site is overloaded at the moment but I'm hoping to explore it thoroughly when it's quieter. Hopefully they won't suspend or take it down...
