  1. I've been using Rodrigo Lopez for years. My hair is short, thin and spiky but while there for my color, I watch him cut and style other clients hair. I've been impressed with everything I've seen him do. His Salon, Inovation, is located on Marcos Castellanos just below the Carretera in Ajijic. If you're walking, just start down the hill and you'll see him on your right. He's closed on Sunday and Monday. He usually works 10-4 and 6-8 but just give him a call at 331-512-1214 or stop by and let him take a look at your hair and see what he can do to help you. If you're driving, be aware that M. Castellanos is an one way street heading up so you'd need to drive into Ajijic using Galeana or Colon and make a square to end up driving up to his Salon in the correct direction. Hope this helps.

  2. 2 weeks ago I bought several pairs of shoes for a friend living in an Assisted Living Home and at the register, I explained that I would need to try the shoes on her to see what she liked and what fit. She confirmed that with my receipt, I could return the ones that didn't fit or she didn't like. I came back 2 days later, went to the service desk with the two pairs. I exchanged one for a different size and returned the other. She credited the $ back onto my debit card. Very pleasant experience. Cheers, Val
  3. And they have GREAT sparkly/blingy fabric, which I LOVE, LOL! Cheers, Val

There will be an intro jazz class taught by Maritza Freyslinger on Wednesday Jan 15 at 12:30-1:30. Then this beginner jazz class will move to Mondays at 12:30 starting on Monday Jan. 20. Whether you have danced before or are not sure which is your left foot, the class will have something to offer each participant. The goal of the class will be to teach people to be aware of their body and how it moves through space. The other goal will be to simply enjoy dancing and moving to great music. We also want to announce an addition to the dance classes that we offer. Maritza will be teaching a more advanced jazz class starting Saturday Jan 25 at 10:30-11:30. This class will be at the L’Air Studio in the Bugambilias plaza. This class will definitely be a more advanced class and it will assume that you know the basics of jazz movement. The technique and the choreography will be faster and more high energy. All classes will follow a set format. There will be a warmup phase that will include stretches, roll downs, pliés and so forth. This will be followed by time spent on isolations. The next part will consist of work on technique. Finally we will work on some choreography suitable for the level of the class.

  6. THRILLED to have found the Kirkland brand salted butter at the Costco, Galerias, yesterday in GDL. I was so excited, I purchased 2 packages (8 boxes)!!! Two in the fridge, the rest in the freezer for future use. I asked to speak with the manager but he/she was unavailable but was directed to a kiosk where I could fill out a compliment card. Those of us who've begged for this product for years are so pleased to finally have it. I thanked them, profusely, and hope it will be a product they continue to stock. But, NO canned whole tomatoes this visit. How odd?! Feast or famine, eh? Nice to have first world problems and happy to report the existence of the product many of us have requested for many years. Cheers! Val Jones
  7. I have RING on property in the U.S. and LOVE it, too. Don't have one here but my suggestion would be to call Gibran (he used to work at Steren). He's super capable with all things electronic. 332-162-6205. Tell him Val sent you. Val Jones
  8. I went to the show on Thursday, Opening night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of talented people working hard to raise funds for the Auditorio. I realize the government has said they will begin major renovations this month and hope that is true but in the past, this is the only fund-raiser to make improvements to the Auditorio that is used by so many. As a local dancer, I have seen and benefitted from the upgrades made from money raised throughout the annual Lip Sync. productions. I know many who have performed there over the years have been grateful for the changes, improvements and upgrades. I also know from being an audience member that the seating has become much more comfortable when you're in the audience enjoying a show. Cheers! Val Jones
  9. lakeside7, when I pay online (which I do almost every year), you do not receive a sticker. Just keep the receipt in the car and if asked for proof, show it to Vialidad or the Federales. I much prefer this method as the stickers (over time) tend to obscure your view. Cheers! Val Jones
  10. GREAT! Was able to go on-line and pay for my 2020 Refrendo. Yea, no waiting in lines. I'll keep the receipt in my car for proof. Thanks, Val
  11. I thought I saw the website where I could re-new online but don't see the link now. Can someone share it with me? Thanks, Val Jones
  12. Thanks mkshawn, it was pretty thick and did weigh 3 lbs. so hopefully it's the better quality PVC. I did receive a FEDEX notice that it was dropped off yesterday (by a friend) for shipping to FL. I'll be curious what cost I end up paying for the service. I chose Economy Saver fare in hopes it wouldn't be too expensive. Cheers! Val
  13. I'd be happy to take 2 of the boxes. Are you willing to split your order with me? Thanks, Val Jones
  14. I'll avoid the tope issue other than to say I've almost been rear-ended twice since they were installed. On one occasion, I had to pull into Cielo Vista to avoid being hit. Driving that stretch several times each week, I've noticed some fly over them while others crawl over them. I am kind of in the middle on speed but the two times I almost got hit the individuals behind me assumed I and the others in front of me were flying over them. Frustrated. Val
  15. Great idea, thanks! Want to make sure they're safe from any potential water damage. Val LOL, just realized this never posted. Super blonde moment! Many thanks to those of you willing to give me your mailing cylinders. I appreciate your kindness and generosity. I ended up purchasing a 2" PVD pipe and it was 30" long. Was able to print my FEDEX label and tape it on as well. Thanks for your help and Happy New Year! Val Jones
