  1. It really depends upon where you live. I have had Telmex for many years and the internet has usually been quite good. There have been too many outages lately, though in my neighborhood. (Upper, slightly West Ajijic)
  2. There is a bus station/stop in Western Central Ajijic on the lake side of the Carretera. It is just about 50 meters east Colon..
  3. Thanks for the help understanding this word. I am proud that I kind of sort of speak Spanish, but I am a long ways from speaking Spanish fluently.
  4. The Andador Is Returning to Ajijic OK, I have to admit I have no idea what you folks are talking about. All I know is that my spell checker does not recognize that word, Andador. Google showed me an adv for walkers for old folks. I'm definitely an old folk, but I have no idea what you folks are talking about.
  5. That is perhaps a slightly exaggerated term. But, if I lived in one of those states, yes I would be nervous, perhaps not because the car I drive, but because of the nice neighborhood I live in which would suggest I am more well to do than I actually am.
  6. Yes. I searched that list in panic mode and I too happily discovered that we are not on that list. Thank God
  7. I got a phone call yesterday from the San Antonio Hospital/Clinic, asking if I wanted to come in for my Quad4 flue shot. I went in this morning and upon asking, I learned that they had received 150 injections, that they gave out 50 shots yesterday and that they are working on the remaining 100 shots today and maybe Friday. I know, I had signed up for the shot, so I am guessing that there may not be many or any extra shots for those whom are yet to sign up. What was my cost? $750 pesos
  8. Gosh, I guess it depends upon where you live. If your home is close to the Ajijic Telmex office and you have a direct line to their office, your speeds can be pretty good. Me? I have the Telmex $499 peso per month package and my usual download speeds are 45.5 to 48 Mbpsec down by about 8.5 upload. During periods of heavy use, like right now (19:10), I still get about 42 down by about 7.8 up and that is all or perhaps more than I need for streaming or internet. These speeds are wireless. And my computer is about 3 meters from my Telmex router. Wired, I am only slightly faster. Still less than 50 down by 10 up. Which, again, is all or perhaps more than I need. EDIT: I would love to hear other experiences with Telmex for internet. To the best of my knowledge, my connection is copper wire, not fiberoptic.
  9. Telmex offers a landline with basic internet for $389 pesos per month or at 20 to 1, less than $20 US per month. So if Telmex offers only a landline without internet, it would be for even less than $389 pesos per month
  10. Thank you all for your help. I will be trying to wean my Gardener from using this very poisonous substance.
  11. Any time I have needed Malathion in the past, I purchased it in powered form and the gardener would mix it with water and he had his liquid Malathion. However, my gardener now says it's available in liquid form and he asked it I could it him a liter or two of liquid Malathion. I live in upper slightly West Ajijic. Does anyone know where I might find some Malathion in liquid form rather than powered? Thanks in advance for any advise you might have.
  12. So true. Any time I want to go from West Ajijic to say Mom's Deli or Poncho's store/restaurant, I try to go and return before 10AM or so. It's getting really bad. 9AM 1 PM 🙂 🥵
  13. Too funny. I enjoyed your post about "The Heron" who you choose not to feed
  14. I'll take a little rain, if Pamela would like to share it
  15. One of the great things about Lakeside is that we have two Thanksgiving dinners that we can attend, the Canadian Thanksgiving this coming Monday and the US Thanksgiving on the third Thursday of November. I would love some recommendations about which restaurants to choose for this coming Monday, hopefully near Ajijic. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  16. When I am getting up each morning, getting ready to go out to breakfast, I just turn on my Seattle local news channels, usually ABC. I've got it on right now as I check what's new on my computer, ie the Chapala Forum, emails, etc.
  17. I have always gotten my flu shots for free when I was up north during this time of the year. However this year my timing is way off and I will not be returning until immediately after Christmas. Why the change in schedule? Because of the Covid Virus and availability of vaccine shots, which I now have. QUESTION: Do the lakeside Doctors have access to an effective flu virus? And if so, what time of the year is it usually available? Thanks in advance for any information you might wish to share about the availability and timing of flu vaccine shots lakeside.
  18. I just went to my spam folder for the first time in ages. And I kid you not, but 1/3 of the emails marked as spam were from the "Chapala.com webboard" stating that someone had sent me a message. Sorry, Mainecoons, several were from you that I never got. I will read them now
  19. Those to the right, often find FOX better. Those to the left, often find MSNBC better. They say CNN is almost in the middle, but slightly to the left. And depending upon your political leanings, you will often like the news station which is closer to your political leanings as your favorite station. At least that is what has been written and spoken about on line and on various talk shows. I force myself to watch a little of each, although I like the one best, that most closely follows my political views.
  20. Thanks for sharing. Here in upper and slightly West Ajijic, we had plenty of rain, but apparently very little compared to you. There was absolutely no apparent damage on the streets of upper Colon nor upper Juarez, in West Ajijic, this morning when I drove to and from downtown Ajijic for breakfast.
  21. That's right. It's just that iPhones receive the messages sooner than those silly android things. If you don't believe me, check it out on Bing or Google search.
  22. That outage of Facebook, etc acted very differently than this outage. At least in my neighborhood the internet service keeps on going off and then coming back on. Weird. And Mostlylost, my iPhone uses Telcel not Telmex.
  23. Now it is back up. I'm getting a lot of short outages with Telmex, today.
  24. Upper Ajijic. Top of Juarez Infinitum working great, for once Ping Download Upload 16 45.05 Mbps 10.57 Mbps Well it is now down. Weird. Glad I have a backup connection
