    Can anyone really forget Jeffrey… He was one of a kind… Personally I miss both Jeffrey and Cafe Magana .

    You either “got” him or you didn’t. I got him — and his food. He was (and probably still is) a real character. I will never forget his hand printed signs all over the women’s bathroom. Some people were very insulted by them. They cracked me up. Every time he had to clean up an overflow because some dumbass thought she was special and could flush her toilet paper there’d be another sign. They started off politely asking and each one grew increasingly angry and profane.

  2. It might be. It might not. It’s TelMex. One time I drove to the office in Ajijic to pay my bill on the day it was due. When I came home the bill was in my mailbox. I have received the bill early, late, and not at all. As I said, it’s TelMex. If you have a Mexican bank account you can pay on line. I have a friend with a Mexican bank account. When the bill is due and has not arrived by mail she will pay my bill on line and I give her cash.

    I would agree but people who are not helpful don't have to be rude about it. The problem lies in that they have nothing better to do. I'm glad I've been getting helpful answers because it's make those unhelpful answers somewhat tolerable. 

    You have no control over how people respond to you on the board or in real life. You are in control of how you respond. If you do relocate to this area you will find, along with the wonders and delights, a fair amount of things you do not like and will not want. How you react to them will determine your happiness or unhappiness here.

    Yes I have visited, no need to be snarky. If you have nothing better to do than to make assumptions about people you don't know, go find some friends. 

    This board is like the lakeside community as a whole. You will find people you like and people you don’t like, people who are helpful to you and people who are not, people who rub you right or those who rub you wrong. The quality of your experience on this board and in this community depends upon how you react to all these folks.

    Okay.  But those of you who signed up for izzi or totalplay a while back and signed a one year contract, did you need to renew your contract every single year?  Because now I'm thinking, once you use it for at least one year... then there isn't any penalty to cancel anymore since you had it for minimum one year?  Thus imagine you signed up for izzi three years ago.  That would mean you could probably cancel any month right?


    I just want to know the general on this.

    It’s Mexico. There is no “general.” MostlyLost and Rick have given you good advice. No one here can tell you what the terms of your contract with Izzi are. The terms of other’s contracts here may or may not be the same as yours.

    Xena in case you have not noticed  I am  not the gatekeepers for who comes and who goes,perhaps you should be directing your comment to the  Mexican government 

    I look at Lakeside as a big melting pot,  the good, the bad, and the  ugly similar to  any other community 

    I am asking you about your own posts which make no sense to me.

    But would the "same kind" that have invaded Vancouver be OK

    Seriously for Mexicans and "others" who rely on a income  from rentals the future looks bleak. I have Mexican friends  in Guadalajara who own "locals" and have had to significantly drop their price in order to retain their renters, times are tough 

    So, you are inviting Chinese communists from Vancouver to come on down? Why?

    Canada welcomes immigrants but only well qualified one's need apply. Canada to welcome up to 390,000 in 2022. https://www.cicnews.com/2020/03/canada-to-welcome-up-to-390000-immigrants-in-2022-0313872.html#gs.174tin

    What about illegal immigrants? Like the one's the U.S. is taking in at it's southern border. Send some transport down there and help out. Take them up north to make Canada their home and help them out with your wonderful social welfare programs. 

    The U.S. is not taking in illegal immigrants at its southern border. It is taking in some refugees according to international law.

    Short answer.....NO !!

    Once again, you are inferring and implying this dementia thing. And I´ll keep responding as long as you keep implying.

    You are dealing with the master of using inferring, implying, and plausible deniability so good not even eagle-eyed Moderator2 could accuse MC of personal attacks. 😁

    I'm only pointing out that Canada should do it's fair share. I'm not at all grumpy. I am pointing out what Canada is not doing. And you're done because you can't hold a valid argument.

    Whipstock will be finished when he decides he is. You don’t get to tell anyone on this board when they are “done.”

    Why didn't you just go to one of the many municipalities comprising the greater Guadalajara area and get one? They were happy to give one to anyone over 60. Soon they will be happy to give one to anyone over 50. 

    You assume a lot. First of all, it is none of your business whether I personally got a shot or why I did/could not go if I did not. I was not talking about myself. Some of us know/care about people whose lives are different from their own. We like to remind people that what may seem easy/affordable to them may not be possible for others. Stop being so nosy and judgmental.

    Stop depending on anything to do with vaccine and the mexican government.   Give up and fly to TJ and walk across the bridge to USA.  Sign up for vaccine at drug store before you go.  Get your J&J shot and come home.  Yes I know this won't help the disabled but it will help many of us.  I have no faith I will ever be called nor should you.  AMLO has botched the whole thing and will continue to do so.  My wife got her shots in Mexico City and she reports nothing but praise. She got appointment and never spent more than two hours for whole process.  Not only that but they supplied entertainment. Our son lives in M.C. so it was legal for her to get shots in M.C.  AMLO and Alfaro don't get along and this has altered the process for us. 

    It also doesn’t help those who can not afford to “just” fly to TJ and walk across the bridge.

    So, if we should "Never open an email attachment", does this mean we should all go back to Snail Mail???

    You missed the part that said “... unless you check with them first.” You have to verify it is an email from the person it appears to be from. Yes, a PITA but that’s modern life.

    Well that's a little better... But how are people who don't KNOW that couple to know how to reach them?

    I am hoping there is other info on the tag the poster did not include. Surely they don’t expect people to pick up their dog, take it home to keep it safe, and then begin to search for a way to contact them.
