  1. A photographer on vacation in Orlando was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read '$10,000 per call'. The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way. Next stop was in Atlanta . There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God. 'O.K., thank you,' said the American. He then traveled to Indianapolis , Washington DC , Philadelphia , Boston and New York . In every church he saw the same golden telephone With the same '$10,000 per call' sign under it. The American, upon leaving Vermont decided to travel up to Canada to see if Canadians had the same phone. He arrived in Canada , and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read '40 cents per call.' The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. 'Father, I've traveled all over America and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in the US the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?’ The priest smiled and answered, 'You're in Canada now, son ... it's a local call.'

  4. That's the cell number that I have...... It worked 6 weeks ago before we "migrated" back to Canada. His brother Jaime - the auto electric wizard from Chapala speaks English and his number is 3334985294. You could call him and see if there is a new number or why Roberto's isn't.
  5. I also heard that it would be like wearing a condom with the tip cut off......
  6. I see that the original poster is "#HarryB" The writing style doesn't look like Harry Bublin who uses the name HarryB. I also see that #HarryB joined this web board on March 30th. Just sayin.....

  8. The following web page is a request from my local (Peterborough Ont) hospital for mask donations. It includes directions. Chapala can use all you can make too. Click on this link: If you can sew, Peterborough Regional Health Centre needs you to make face masks.
  9. This is the OFFICIAL Gov't of Mexico's web page on the Covid 19 virus. If you use Google's Chrome as a browser, it will translate Spanish to English. https://coronavirus.gob.mx/
  10. I think I read or heard that the dates for next years Chili Cook-Off is Feb 26 to 28th. Can anyone confirm?

  14. That presumes that everyone Lakeside reads this web board. If you post the name, a regular reader MAY know the person and can assist in getting the card back. AngusMactavish said it best.
  15. This is an email I received from friends who just arrived home(Saturday) in Southern Ontario. Admittedly, they crossed at Colombia on Wednesday - before the US-Mx border restrictions, but.....
  16. They are Canadian - heading to Southern Ontario.
  17. Friends of ours drove northbound at the Colombia - Solidarity crossing yesterday (Wednesday) late afternoon without any problem. They do it annually and said it was the best crossing ever.
  18. Your post says that returning Canadians are " required to spend 14 days in mandatory self-quarantine " .. Not to be too picky but the above email actually says " The Government of Canada is asking all travellers entering Canada to self-isolate for 14 days upon entry". Every Snowbird that I know, including us, will voluntarily self-isolate - as the government "asked" when returning home.

  22. Eurofreeze serviced my A/C on March 14th. last year and rebuilt the seals and recharged the system. The charge was 2900 pesos. I am a snow bird and parked the car at the end of April - 6 weeks after the repair. When we returned at the end of October we started to use the car. On Jan 19th the air conditioner quit and I had the compressor replaced for 10,000 pesos. I have used Roberto at Hernandez Llantera (next to Tony's Original Restaurant) for the last 18 years and wish I had gone to him last year.
  23. I always use my Canadian VISA card at the taxi booth at Guadalajara airport.
