  1. Could you forward your contact information to me as well? jon.b.pace@gmail.com Thanks.
  2. We lived lakeside for 11 years before we paid more than $500 pesos for a dinner for two. This new place takes precios sin verguenza to new heights, and I mean heights! I hope that even wealthy people will recognize this and respond accordingly.
  3. Can you provide a means of contacting him? Phone, email, address or whatever. Thank you.
  4. Thank you for a number of really helpful replies. You have steered me away from several less-than-the-best approaches.
  5. Anyone out there use this service? How would you rate it? Any clearly better alternatives?
  6. Uh oh. I have Telmex, not Telcel. I assume that makes a difference.
  7. We are going to San Diego from Chapalalandia next week. Can I use my Mexican cel phone due to our proximity to Mexico in San Diego? Worth a try? Thanks in advance for any info.
  8. He was back in business in front of Super Lake yesterday and today. I saw him packing up to close at about 3:00pm today.
  9. My beloved Sanyo internet radio died last year after about 17 years of great service. No one has been able to fix it anywhere around here. So now I'm looking for recommendations for a replacement. The old radio could search by country or by genre or both, ie, genre within country. That worked just fine for me. It cost about $150 USD way back then. There are dozens of brands and models of internet radio available on el Mercado Libre. So specific recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I even noted that some of the radios for sale only play their own proprietary stations...not interested. Actually, for all those years, that old Sanyo was pretty much exclusively tuned to WNYC, public radio New York City. Thanks for helping in advance.
  10. Or just go to a hardware store and buy a replacement handle for a "swinging" tool like an axe. They are well balanced and IMHO more effective than a baseball bat. Easier to find as well.
  11. And they speak fluent English, so you should have no problem communicating.
  12. Pretty much, yes. I picked up dinner to go tonight. Is that noncompliance?
  13. My wife is preparing for life after a broken hip. When she gives up the walker, she wants to try a couple of the "ski poles" modified for terra firma. What are these called? Where does one buy them? Are they available in the Chapala area? So many questions. We are returning from the beach for a week or two tomorrow, so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  14. I found the new web site to be very difficult to navigate. Badly designed by amateurs it seemed. I finally gave up on the site to the point that we are driving ourselves to Costco this Thursday. I would like to trust these "great kids" but their interface with clients sucks.
  15. It appears that Lakeside Express.com, the lakeside Costco shopping service, is out of business. Has anyone else taken their place?
  16. Maria Elena, I don't doubt the quality of your services, but my friend lives in the US and wants a 24-hour a day immersion (minus sleep) in Spanish. I understand that there might be "the real thing" in Guadalajara but he specifically wants to visit Lakeside. I'm afraid that there may not be such an experience available here for him. Thanks for your response.
  17. A longtime friend of mine would like to go to a one or, preferably, two-week Spanish language "immersion" experience in these parts. This would be during January and/or February of this coming year. He already speaks quite a bit of Spanish I believe since he has been married to a Philippine woman for years. Immersion in my understanding usually involves a live-in situation but it doesn't have to be if there is another, similar, approach. Any information would be passed on to him and greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
  18. Any advice on where to go online for televised election coverage tonight that isn't blocked from reception in Mexico? CNN would be good but will we be able to get the TV broadcast? Thanks in advance for your help.
  19. Thank you. I'm forwarding this information to friends in La Manzanilla.
  20. RickS, yes, I guess. But wouldn't two or three suggestions as to the better places and some info about waiting-list times have been more to the point? Thanks, anyway, really.
  21. We are trying to help out those close to a physically healthy but increasingly mentally unstable and, recently, abused woman of about 70 years old who likely needs a nursing home or other facility to look after her. She has a US brother who doesn't want to get involved beyond paying for her care. She currently lives in her own home in La Manzanilla but that is daily a less viable situation. There are no such institutions near there, so Lakeside has come to everyone's mind who cares about her. Any suggestions or leads would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your input.
