  1. Can you put up a picture of what you are looking for? There are many, many sellers of ceramic tiles in GDL along NiƱos Heroes.
  2. Given the environmental damage caused by wild fishing we prefer the more sustainable farming. Thanks to wild fishing, for example, species of turtle, porpoise and whales are routinely killed and endangered. The Japanese and Chinese fishing fleets are notoriously damaging to the ocean environments. That's why take the risk. I wouldn't eat anything farmed in this lake because of the industrial pollution and toxics dumped there. Personal preference.
  3. In the morning Informador. Not stated whether one of the 18 stations will be local. https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/Licitan-18-lineas-de-verificacion-vehicular-para-municipios-fuera-de-la-ZMG-20210221-0047.html
  4. Unless your taxes are really complicated, TurboTax is an absolute slam dunk when it comes to filing returns. I've used it for 10 years without error notices or additional tax demands. Takes me about two hours for the entire process and that includes organizing income data, filing it out and electronically filing. The software is never out of date, when you start it, it looks for updates and installs them quickly and seamlessly. I am not an accountant, however, this software actually revealed mistakes on a return I paid an accountant for which is one reason I switched. If you c
  5. Wow, thank you for that enlightening information! May be able to go over there later in the Spring. How would I start looking for the right shops to go to?
  6. At least in Mexico it seems the cities have the biggest problems but that could also be related to more reporting and/or testing. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/crematoriums-funeral-homes-overwhelmed-in-major-cities/
  7. Yes. Went to all of the local tile places. One suggested I take it to Hildalgo. None could do anything other than flat painted and glazed, very poor match. We tried that already.
  8. I went there and they couldn't match mine. Interesting because yours is more complex. But on mine, the design seems to sit on top of the tile and the base surface and has some depth. Maybe that was the problem
  9. Also from that 2017 thread, supposedly a store on the way out of Jocotepec: If anyone checks either or both out would you please let us know what you found?
  10. Well it was posted in 2017, no idea if it is still there. Thanks to Zipit for the heads up.
  11. I've searched without luck for the location of that supposed store in San Juan Cosala that supposedly has a lot of discontinued old tile. Someone posted here some time ago about it and where it is but for the life of me I can't remember when or where.
  12. Don't they also farm these fish in Mexico?
  13. Isn't that place in San Juan Cosala? I'd like to also check and see if they have some that would match some of my old ones. Can't remember where it is at but I think someone has posted here about it in the distant past.
  14. "could" does not equal "did." The former is speculation, the latter is history. The reference I cited states the scientists do not have an explanation for the drop. It lists several possibilities. Commerce equals lives for those not privileged like so many here to have independent incomes.
  15. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-why-the-number-of-covid-19-cases-is-dropping-globally/
  16. For some the glass is always half empty. https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20210210/rate-of-covid-cases-and-death-declining-worldwide
  17. It still can happen. Problem is gas shortage for power generation.
  18. Nearly $5 to go from Chapala highway to Lopez Mateos? Nope not worth it particularly now the carretera has been so much improved. Not to mention getting onto it when heading north requires that insane retorno and taking your life into your own hands. Amazing this uber pricey road couldn't provide a proper junction with Chapala highway.
  19. In the northern hemisphere don't varmints normally migrate NORTH if it is too warm? Do wolverines like to jump from the frying pan into the fire?
  20. That illegal restriction was removed as of Saturday. Someone needs to clue these folks in.
  21. Headed to Playa Grande Resort over spring break and looking for recommendations for fishing charters in Melaque, which is the closest place. Would be three adults total wanting a half day excursion. Any recommendations? Tried one in Manzanillo a few years back, not very satisfactory.
