  1. Just got the show hung and it looks great! Come by for refreshments at Studio 18 (Colon - 2 doors down from Bancomer) from 5 - 7.
  2. Expect to pay mucho for the Bosch service out of Guad. We were quoted $800 pesos for someone to just come and look at a heater that was a week old and (supposedly) under warranty.
  3. After a day of searching, here's what we have found: Yes, Costco has a lovely Keurig machine and lots of pods....including a generic Kirkland brand pod for the Keurig machine. BUT....while we were looking, a nice young Mexican man walked by, looked at the price ($1,500.00) and said he should have waited because he paid $2,000.00 for the same machine last week. To me, that sounded like Costco was trying to get rid of them (and they would never be seen again). We went on to Liverpool (nada), Best Buy (nada) and Sears (nada). HUGE displays for the Nescafe machine. Result: We bought a Krups machine at Costco and I'll start searching for flavored creamers to fill my flavor-fix. I DID find an aluminum dish drainer that was on my wish list....so the trip was worthwhile.
  4. Time for a new coffee maker and I LOVE flavored coffees. I'm not interested in the one they have at WalMart because you have to use THEIR pods. I want a Keurig because (if I understand correctly) if you run out of pods, you CAN use generic coffee. Now the problem is where to find one. Someone said there's a store in Guadalajara on Avenida La Paz that carries all things coffee. Has anyone been there? Do you know approximately WHERE on La Paz it is? Or......any other ideas of where to find a Keurig?
  5. I had mine done by Hilda, who is now at Chapala Medical Center. I was afraid of getting eyebrows that were black, or dark brown which would look strange with my "platinum" hair. Hilda mixed up several taupe colors and I picked the one I thought would look the best. The result was perfect. I'm ready for a touch-up now and will definitely go back to her.
  6. Before our move 10 years ago, we asked in Guadalajara for a Lexus dealer. The people at Toyota said they could do routine maintenance but would have to order any parts needed. We went home and sold both cars and bought a Toyota pickup. Apparently nothing has changed.
  7. When we came down 8 years ago, we thought we were 'cutting back' by only having one car. Surprise! Living where we do (what was then "out in the country") it became impossible for both of us to have our various activities with only one car. So we're back to two. I go one direction, hubby goes the other direction and we get together for drinks on the patio in the afternoon.
