  1. Yeah, what a weird combination, huh? All 3 are for creating an indigo dye bath. I`ve used the usual US-purchased materials up to now but getting them from the US is expensive so I`m trying out the local versions. Hope they work, the internet literature says they will.
  2. Can fructose be purchased lakeside?
  3. Any know of where Rit color remover can be found lakeside?
  4. Thanks, found out all I need is standard cal.
  5. What is the difference between the kind you cook with and the hardware store kind? Are these calcium hydroxide? Gracias.
  6. Where can I find cal locally? And, is this calcium hydroxide? Thanks.
  7. The first two weeks in June are hot like May is, but the last 2 weeks are cooler because of the rains.
  8. Only immediately around the plaza. 10 mbps everywhere else.
  9. Does anyone have a phone number for one of the Santorini water truck guys for Chapala? Not the office number, the personal number? Gracias.
  10. "the lake is toxic, children are dying and crime is rampant" The lake right now is so full of fish they jump out of the water. Fishermen are having a great time throwing their nets in and in a matter of 30 seconds coming out with a dozen fish big enough to eat. These were my observations last Sunday sitting by them for a while. They had big smiles on their faces. Is the lake toxic? If you dived down to the bottom of the lake and sucked in the muck, you probably wouldn`t live long but heavy metals are...heavy. They don`t migrate much. But you don`t get a fish year like this with a tox

  12. Sapote and persimmon are in the genus Diospyros, family Ebenaceae. They are not related to avocados which are in the family Lauraceae.
  13. No, black sapote is not a form of persimmon. They are 2 very different plants and 2 different species in the same genus. As the potato and eggplant are 2 species in the Solanum genus. The potato is not a form of the eggplant.
  14. https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/ : Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
  15. This three-afternoon workshop will cover everything needed to make paper from discarded paper scraps, banana leaves, flowers and other natural materials. With the paper you make, you’ll be crafting your own paper for drawing, painting, and note cards. We’ll make boxes and bookmarks. We’ll also be adding color to paper with pigments.

The instructor, Brad Mowers, is a fiber craftsman with 30 years of experience . He has been making his own pap
  16. There`s only a very few, the same ones every time, that spout up this way on certain topics.
  17. Brave man, Kyle, for broaching the subject. You won`t get an answer to your question but all the neanderthals will come out of their caves swinging their clubs!
  18. Alan, "labor laws ...include IMSS payments as an employer" Is this only for full time work? By law, is all of what you have said above for full time workers only? Everything else is discretion by employer?
  19. Perros de agua are black-capped night herons, the largest white water birds are great egrets. They usually nest together.
  20. I searched the Home Depot Guad sites and found no Baston de pino solido or molduras madera duro or palo de madera (how they`re usually called here). Do you remember which HD you searched?
  21. Yes, apparently the only places dog owners are strongly being asked by the "tourist inspectors" to leash their dogs (no tickets being issued yet) are on the Chapala and Ajijic malecons. But perhaps officials regulating the park can be persuaded to post a sign and the ticket taker can be persuaded to gently admonish dog owners to leash their dogs for safety to other park users. Not sure if at this point, more can be done legally or administratively.
  22. Apparently, Christiana park administrators allow dogs offleash in the park. I will be advocating in Chapala government to change this but it will be helpful if people who come into the park will simply say to the person who takes the admission (there is no other person of authority in the park on a daily basis) to please not allow dogs offleash in the park. Maybe this will filter up the authority chain. " Por favor no permita perros sin correa en el parque. Es peligroso. Gracias."
