  1. I'm told the Raquet Club has been without electricity since this morning. Anyone have any info? How far does the outage extend?
  2. Any problems in the Raquet Club? I haven't heard from my friend there since just before noon.
  3. 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
  4. They're on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/SouthernSistersAjijic/
  5. 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.

  6. I note her passing at the request of a friend. https://judydykstrabrown.com/2018/05/31/virginia-balon-lovely-lady-r-i-p/
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Power is back on, at least in the area of Ilie Nastase & William Tilden.

  12. Groan. Does anyone here know about Google? https://www.facebook.com/MandJRoyalPizza/
  13. Telmex internet came back about 5 minutes ago in the Raquet Club.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.)
  16. They have a facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Forest-Grill-178449195861312/
  17. I love this article. Do you think it's accurate? http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20170725-the-confusing-way-mexicans-tell-time
  18. There is a facebook page, folks. https://www.facebook.com/EmmasDeliAjijic
  19. Stacey Hewitt of the Raquet Club has passed away, suddenly, apparently peacefully, and of natural causes. We shared a few select friends, and I am so happy to have known her. And I will miss her.
  20. I Skype (voice with video) daily with someone in the Raquet Club, and video is acceptable to very good about 90% of the time, with voice very good virtually every time. (I'm in Missouri.) She has Telmex.
  21. 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/
  22. I'm talking to someone in the Raquet Club reporting that Telmex internet is out, including at least one other area in San Juan Cosala. So, if you're expecting email, etc from that area, it may be awhile. Does anyone have reports of wider outages?
  23. Wendy, I just love how this played out. I'm up here in Missouri checking this board several times a day while Skyping with Remi. I knew she'd lost her camera, and that she was aching for its loss. When I clicked on your post, I immediately recognized her living room, her couch. Wow, it was thrilling! I'm so happy that you took the time & effort to post here, and that we were able to reunite Remi & her camera. You did a Really Good Thing here. Thank you!
  24. Yes! She's looking for it! I'll notify her immediately. Thank you!
