  1. You can google a lot of info. There are several courses that are within an hours drive. A couple just 30 minutes or less depending on where you live. Chula Vista is in San Antonio. it is an executive type short tight track. It's hilly, but generally kept in good condition. Chapala Country Club is about 30 minutes from Ajijic center. It is a nine hole course that has multiple tees to help make it less boring. Not a bad track. greens are very hard. A couple of interesting holes, but nothing special. It has a large membership and quite a few competitions weekly for men and women. Atlas is about a 40 minute drive from Ajijic. It is a very nice course and always kept in top shape. It's a great layout and a beautiful track with huge trees lining both sides of most fairways. It's a true test for golfers of any skill. But, it has tees that compensate for age and high handicappers. Another really nice course is El Cielo. A little over an hour from Ajijic. It is over 7,00 foot elevation and has some spectacular views from several holes. Another true test for golfers of all levels. It is kept in really good condition as well. There are 3-4 other courses in the Guadalajara area that can be played as a non-member. You can find rates and ,membership costs at the websites for each course. It is a great area for golf that is less expensive than the states and our weather is incredible. I play 2-3 times a week and have missed maybe five days due to weather in seven years. If you have specific questions PM me. I am a member at Atlas.
  2. Mudgirl, can you read? I said if someone can afford it to tip more than 10-15% Comprende?
  3. If you tip 10-15% here you are cheap in my opinion. Unless that is truly all you can afford. But everyone has their own definition. And hey Mudgirl, maybe he married a woman who is, shall we say very frugal, cause they think alike huh? No, I have not polled thousands of Mexicans, just basing my opinion on my life's experience, human nature and common sense.
  4. rafter you are out of your gourd. For every Mexican you think feels the way you say they do, there are 10,000 that are grateful that someone more fortunate than they are has made a decision to share. I have worked jobs for tips in my younger days, and also relied on commissions in sales jobs. I never once felt someone was a fool for giving me a tip larger than normal, or increasing my share of a sale. No matter how much you squirm and use others to try to justify being a cheap so and so the truth is evident.

  6. So I guess we can mark down rafterbr as one of the cheap ones.
  7. I told people who told me I was overtipping when I came here that it was none of their f....g business what I tip. Still feel that way. As far as help getting snooty, then their tip goes way down. Pretty simple really. And yes. I believe folks who tip Mexicans 10-15 % are cheap, unless they truly can't afford more. but, it is their prerogative.
  8. My friend is driving over from Texas, probably enter at Brownsville, but that could change. He'd like somewhere that isn't loaded with gringos and is kind of laid back. I'm not familiar with the Gulf so any help would be appreciated.
  9. He painted the outside of my house last year and I need him for more work. He was excellent. Thanks.
  10. I'm 73 and live in the hills outside Chapala. It's very peaceful and I can get into Chapala in 8 minutes or Ajijic in 15. If traffic bugs you, and you are going to have a car, it is much better out of Ajijic. I generally only go into Ajijic in the evenings for dinner. Chapala has some good restaurants as well, with a few between the two. If you are a golfer, as I am, then this area is truly a golfer's dream. There are several options as far as courses, pricing etc. It's year round golfing here.
  11. Wiring. Wife is taking it to Home Decor. Thanks again.
  12. There are crowds at the Presedencia, I was there this am at 9:00 and it was an hour wait. It is sometimes better in the afternoon after 2:00.
  13. This board is hilarious. I said I "might" try to discourage someone from a distance from entering my property, but am not going to perish fighting several thugs. There is no gray area apparently on this board, just surrender or die. By the way, crows, pack rats and several other species hoard stuff as well. So we are not the only ones.
  14. Bisbee gal you are quite the scold aren't you. First, I never said I wanted to kill anyone and second everything would depend on the situation. My house is not easy to access, so it might allow me a chance to deter from a distance. I don't have Clint Eastwood fantasies, or believe I can slay Goliath. If I can ascertain someone is around my house at night and it appears they are making an attempt to enter. I might take some action. If it appears there are several intruders then anything less than a semi-auto weapon will be of little use. I've made it to a healthy 73 by being able to analyze the physical threats I've been confronted with, there have been several, and take appropriate action. Your smug, sarcastic comments only serve to reveal your character, or lack thereof.
  15. I have a hunting slingshot and use steel balls as ammo. It is very accurate up to about 60ft. I can hit a normal size paper plate 4-5 times from about 40 ft. Didn't take much practice, just a few few hours and it was fun. Of course it's just a single shot, although I can reload and aim in about 5-6 seconds, and if it's just one intruder that is all you need. It has enough force to deter anyone it hits.
  16. LOL. last appt a week ago I asked for Dr. Gozales senior and that is who I got. Simple.
  17. Dr. Ross Sr. was a back surgeon, but is now working on knees, shoulders and hips primarily, but he will do cortisone wherever you need it.
  18. I've had several in my shoulders by Dr. Gonzales Ross Sr. at San Antonio Hospital. He's a spine surgeon.
  19. It is my wife's car I will give her your phone or email if you send them.
  20. My wife has a 2006 Honda CRV is very good condition and about 115,000 miles. South Dakota plates.
