  1. They installed Ilox cable on my street, Acapulco, today. Technically, this is Centro but it`s 6 blocks away from the plaza.
  2. Thanks, Alan. Guess I have enough salt in my diet as it is!
  3. Is it possible to pay for a vaccine here? Where can one go to do that?
  4. I need a couple globe-shaped paper wasp nests (vacated) that the little black wasps make. Does anyone have 1 or 2 I could come retrieve? Thank you.
  5. There is no remedy that works universally all the time to stop cutter ants. Every remedy works for a while then no longer works. Cutter ants target a plant one year then the next year one they haven`t touched for years. They will not touch the orange tree in one yard but decimate the one next door. There are things you can do for specific trees like putting Joker Rojo around the bottom of the stem or trunk. Ants stick to this and quickly learn they can`t go over it - until they learn to put a stem of grass across the goo. Putting rice near an entrance to a new home will kill the ants for a while, then it won`t. Otherwise you just learn to deal with losing a tree, a bush or half the plants in your yard. Then you replace these with plants they don`t touch like cactus. In other words, you learn humility. Of course, it`s always amusing to trade stories about the exploits of cutter ants, the lords of our land.
  6. Complete stupidity with a total lack of regard for his fellow citizens and lack of leadership. The man is showing himself to be more of an imbecile each day he is in office.
  7. Coronaviruses have been around at least since 8,000BC. Some of them cause the common cold.
  8. Hi, Fast Rabbit, same question to you as to Curmudgeon: Is your fiber service in Chapala? How did you initiate your fiber service? Thanks.
  9. Thanks. You´re in Chapala? How did you initiate your fiber service?
  10. Anyone in Chapala have Telmex fiber service? Can you evaluate it yet? How did you get it? Cost?
  11. Bisbee Gal, do you have access to total deaths for Chapala municipio?
  12. Did your friend have surgery for Schatzki´s ring? Do you think she would be willing to talk to me about it? Thanks.
  13. Besides the all-manta store in Ajijic across the street from Farmacia Guadalajara and the store gogirl posted in Chapala, there are no other fabric stores lakeside. The closest going to Guad is Textiles Capilla, a fabric warehouse where fabric is sold by the kilo. The fabric is mostly stacked high on pallets. 99% acrylic. This is on the highway to Guadalajara right after the La Barca highway. Watch for the Pepsi plant on the right and the warehouse is immediately following on the road that exits to the right. After that is Guad Centro near the Cathedral. A couple of dozen stores, all acrylic. For natural fabrics, there are two main ones. One is Centro Mercantil Villanueva on Pedro Buzeta street in Santa Teresita. There is an all-cotton store near there but I don´t have a name or directions. Those things are on a card somewhere. If I find it, I´ll post it here. Then there´s Telas Al Puerto de Veracruz, Avenida Chapultepec No. 125, Colonia Americana, CP 44160. Moreliana says it´s the best fabric store in Mexico. There are other smaller fabric stores along Avenida Chapultepec.
  14. Ok, men... Where can I get the highest quality saw palmetto lakeside? It´s too hard for me to get to Guad, so please only answer with store names that are lakeside. Thanks!
  15. Does anyone know in which part of the sky the Leonid meteor shower is appearing? Which time of night is best to view it?
