  1. Besides, Guadlajara is 35 mile north of us and the prevailing wind is from the SW.
  2. It's mostly evaporation from the lake, not smog.
  3. ONLY 33 is a prefix. It's the area code our cellphone numbers use. It's the Guadalajara area code. No issues from either my cell or landline. If you have an Amigo plan you it may need recharging. Otherwise, visit a Telcel store to get your issue resolved.
  4. There is a new SP hospital in Jocotepec, a few miles from Ajijijc.
  5. The area code is 33. All phone number in Mexico are 10 digitis. 33 is the area code for Guadalajara. Nutz, were you calling from a land line? if so, you must enter 045 first then the 10 digits. We are in the 376 area code, the 045 is required to call a cell phone in another area code when calling from a land line.
  6. A friend has one. He still needs an electric heater.
  7. Ana's store is in Ajijic next to Alex's Pasta Bar and opposite Famarica Christiana. The big TELCEL in Centro Laguna has some English speakers, not many. You'll get better service from Ana.
  8. Since it's on the Careterra it's not really IN SJC.
  9. There are TWO Bar Jamon listing on FB. One in Zapopan, the other in San Juan Cosala!
  10. If you have internet and a land line ALL long distance it free. We don't use our cell phones to call NOB.
  11. If you live here and operate in Pesos you're better off keeping your $ up north and bringing them down only when you need them.
  12. Sorry, I didn't mean 12 months, look at the last few months. Then look at the 5 year chart and tell me the Peso is gaining value.
  13. In the last 12 months the Pesos has lost more than 10% of its value. Now how's that 7% look?
  14. The group policies offered here cover very little. They look good at first glance; Cardiac problems, cancer, etc.. But dig deeper and there's not much there.
  15. Costs depand on age and policy details. Talk to reputable agents for exact information.
  16. In 1994 the Gobierno controlled the exchange rate, so ONLY they could devalue the Peso. Two days after the devaluation they took a decision to let the Peso float, i.e. become a free-market currency. It's been that way ever since. The only way the Gobierno could "devalue" the Peso would be for them to take full control of it again. Not likely to happen.
  17. What does the signage say when returning that way? Aeropuerto?
  18. Sheesh! That's a bit harsh. Even though it's not as good as it used to be, I still find it to be one of the better pizzas around.
  19. “The main point in [Wines & Vines’ article by Andrew Adams titled “Arsenic, Herbicide Wine Scares Put in Context — www.winesandvines.com/template.cfm?section=news&content=171152] is this: The EPA reference on glyphosate is 0.1 mg/kg per day, and to reach that level of exposure, the same hypothetical male would have to drink 2,500 glasses of wine per day for 70 years. But, isn't it strange that no one talks about the 130,000,000 or more parts per billion of a known cancer causing chemical found in wines: alcohol.” Jeff Havlin, Havlin Vineyard
