    After finding parking place (fair distance) , bum in seat (middle section of the last outside tent) at 9:38. People circulating to check  right docs, and if not sending them to another line where all could be rectified. I had mine.  Water,   lonches and fruit being handed out(breakfast time for Mexicans). Soon a whole group were taken inside the park. People moved forward.  One group later and we moved up to front, where seats were now 5 wide instead of 7 or 8. Was  soon obvious.... 100 being taken inside at a time. My row was 19 😁


    What were the "right docs" needed?

  3. 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.

    I have the same results with Telmex fibre and never an outage since it was installed almost a year ago.....touch wood.

    Hi, Fast Rabbit, same question to you as to Curmudgeon: Is your fiber service in Chapala?  How did you initiate your fiber service?  Thanks.

    I've had Telmex fiber service for some time. I'm very happy with both the Internet and voice service. There is no cost differential between fiber and copper. I and paying 599 and I usually get 200 down and 100 up.

    Thanks.  You´re in Chapala?  How did you initiate your fiber service?

    schatzki ring is associated with hiatial hernia. I have a great book about it by Dr. T. Baroody that describes this problem and self help solutions. Another tip was drinking tumeric milk 2=3 times a day to reduce inflamation. I had a friend who couldn't eat rice, which she loves ,because it would get "stuck" there. She had the surgery, so I'll ask her what her experience was....

    Did your friend have surgery for Schatzki´s ring?  Do you think she would be willing to talk to me about it?  Thanks.

  9. 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.
