  1. If we told you, it wouldn't be a surprise. 😉
  2. Yup, confirmed. Hard rain right now in the Raquet Club. Thunderstorm over the Lake is spreading. http://www.ajijicweather.com/StormVueNG.htm
  3. Bookmarking this to try. Sounds & looks delicious. You can watch the video of the recipe here: https://www.americastestkitchen.com/videos/4015-deviled-pork-chops Thanks Tiny!
  4. Cedros just posted on another thread that Ilox is stringing lines in the Raquet Club today. Anyone there connected yet? Also (kinda hate to ask, but...) can someone either post a link or text for the internet packages they offer? I've been slogging through past posts and searches on Mr. Google, but I'm betting some y'all have that info at your fingertips. Thanks.
  5. Does anyone here have any info or suggestions or ... about getting the Raquet Club connected? Is anyone in the RC one of the early subscribers?
  6. I'm not sure whether to comment here or start a new topic, but... Does anyone here have any info about getting the Raquet Club connected?
  7. I'm told the Raquet Club has been without electricity since this morning. Anyone have any info? How far does the outage extend?
  8. Any problems in the Raquet Club? I haven't heard from my friend there since just before noon.
  9. Pepe gets lot of props. He comes to you, and I know he will drive to the Raquet Club. Here's a thread about him. http://www.chapala.com/webboard/index.php?/topic/58094-pepe-massage/&tab=comments#comment-460772
  10. They're on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/SouthernSistersAjijic/
  11. Agustin Vazquez is one of my favorite humans ever. In addition to running the wonderful Viva Mexico restaurant in San Juan Cosala, he does amazing work for his community. He was just profiled in this YouTube video, which I just discovered today. I hope y'all will watch. If you'd like to know more about him, here are a couple of posts for ya. Agustin's Story Vive la Cultura de Mexico
  12. I note her passing at the request of a friend. https://judydykstrabrown.com/2018/05/31/virginia-balon-lovely-lady-r-i-p/
  13. Here is the quintessential Jim reading a poem from his latest (and sadly last) volume of poetry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5efEDBf8hs&feature=youtu.be
  14. I'm surprised this hasn't been noted here yet. Jim was a damn fine poet and a damn fine resident. Here is a fine tribute. The Bee Keeper.
  15. http://www.ajijicweather.com/ provides lots of information - webcam of the lake, lightning strikes, weather. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IJOCOTEP4&cm_ven=localwx_pwsdash is a handy weather station for anyone (like me) interested in current conditions in the Raquet Club.
  16. Power is back on, at least in the area of Ilie Nastase & William Tilden.
  17. http://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/telephone-prefixes-to-be-phased-out-in-2019/
  18. Groan. Does anyone here know about Google? https://www.facebook.com/MandJRoyalPizza/
  19. Telmex internet came back about 5 minutes ago in the Raquet Club.
  20. I just got a call from someone in the Raquet Club with the same problem. Is anyone in the Raquet Club able to get Telmex internet? Edit: her telcel internet appears to be down as well.
  21. I've been really happy with Luis Algarin, the new co-owner of Benno's (next to the vet behind the gas station on the libramiento.) Not only did he sell me a new battery for my Mac at less than the price it sells for in the states, but when I went in to inquire about buying a new usb hub, he showed me how to easily repair my old hub myself when he could have sold me a new one! Very impressive. Their phone number is 332 340 7501. (Submitted on behalf of a happy customer. I, Duckie, vouch for her enthusiasm.)
  22. They have a facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Forest-Grill-178449195861312/
  23. I love this article. Do you think it's accurate? http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20170725-the-confusing-way-mexicans-tell-time
  24. There is a facebook page, folks. https://www.facebook.com/EmmasDeliAjijic
  25. Agustin is amazing, both as a restauranteur and community resource. Here is a link to a wonderful profile about him: https://judydykstrabrown.com/2014/11/02/agustins-story/
