  1. me neither, constant sensationalism without any historical perspective
  2. Amazon.mx has a few and Amazon.us has a few that ship here. https://www.amazon.com.mx/Lizkona-P50601-Sombrilla-Patio-color/dp/B015NLVH3O/ref=pd_sbs_201_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=78C84EYCDYFWJ385W151 Amazon.mx and .us recently seem to be overlapping products since I have had more items I purchased off .us being sent to me via the Mexico fulfillment center. Two weeks ago I orderd via .us two pairs of reader sunglasses from the same maker and the source in Las Vegas. One pair arrived within 5 days from the Mexico fulfillment center. The other is expected nex
  3. you could try 'La Sirena Reina' in Puerto Vallarta or 'swimsuits Puerto Vallarta'. Even if you don't post anything on Facebook having an account and being able to search businesses etc... is a nice alternative to Google, Bing and webboards. Virtually every city in Mexico and the US has a general information page with locals on it. Even for PV there is 'Puerto Vallarta: Everything you want to know' and 'PV Rants and Raves'. I just ordered two suits from www.swimsuitsforall.com and shipping was very reasonable.
  4. Don't you think if there were parking available in the rear that El Barco would have found a way to take advantage of that parking? I am hopeful that Pancho will be able to establish an alternative to Superlake,
  5. https://www.facebook.com/LaSirenaReinaPuertoVallartaQualitySwimwearforWomen/ located in PV she has been bringing items here for sales a couple times the past year, contact her and ask her about Guadalajara shops.https://www.facebook.com/LaSirenaReinaPuertoVallartaQualitySwimwearforWomen/
  6. Wine - from $109 to 198 cheeses - the big brie wheel for instance almost $200 now nuts - stupid expensive in the big Costco containers but even the small cellophane packets they repackage are up there melba toast - the brand I like almost doubled so the items I purchase that are generally on the expensive side are more expensive
  7. My shopping at Superlake this week resulted in a noticed 50 to 70 peso increase on about a dozen of our regular entertainment items. I wasn't surprised because they are not pantry staples, but still, that is a bit rich for a sudden increase. We used to justify the prices because Superlake having the items meant we didn't have to travel to Costco. 2018 will see us at Costco instead.
  8. really time over convenience and decent road...longer but new road wins every single time. We drove 7200 miles over 7 weeks and the worst stretch of road in all that was the final 30 miles from the new outerbelt to Ajijic on the Chapala highway. Just outrageously bad.

    meat pie

    We love the chicken pot pie. Easy quick meal with a salad. Freezes well. Going to try the meat pie. Not familiar with those so it will be a surprise.
  10. ElectroVenta hasn't been able to figure this problem out for me. Do you all have some other suggestions and contact information for appliance repair people?

  12. Woman on my street told me not to park in front of her door since that is her space and since she doesn't have a car her friends have to pull over down the street a couple doorways when they come to pick her up. The entire street from the old Number 4 restaurant south was empty. When I mentioned I had paid the outside gardener to weed that side of the street curb area she said that when he pulled the weeds in the gutter he pulled out all the grass and now she hasn't any grass for her two dogs. No wonder I smelled urine when I got out of my car everyday since the rains stopped.
  13. We are on Donato Guerra between 16th de Sept and Constitucion and have water but it could be the aljibe supply. I guess we will know in when its time for morning showers.
  14. Yes, because so often its take the money and no perform the service. I don't mind the price but I won't be paying up front.
  15. The San Antonio guys have tried their own hospital for years. I would bet on the fellows who have done it successfully someplace else. Even if it is primarily an elective procedure facility the recent growth spirt shows it is probably a timely endeavor. Now for a real ambulance.
  16. We are installing wall heaters in the bathrooms. They use electricity but I am tired of waiting until 11 or 12 to shower and my husband will install a timer for them. They can actually just hang on the wall by a plug but we will build a frame and attach it to the wall solidly. Then hard wire it and run the wires onto the wall. Cost about $150 or so. I lobbied for towel warmer style of heater but he told me not to push it. https://www.amazon.com/Broan-9815WH-High-Capacity-Heater/dp/B001PO7LP2/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1505238827&sr=8-17&keywords=wall+bathroom+heater
  17. We used sand paper, Navel jelly and them primed it with oil primer from a can. Then we painted it 2 coats of oil medium green paint so that it would blend in with the garden. WE did the same to our hot water heater which is semi-visible.
  18. Damn I missed his last concert and now this one...shoot shoot shoot and phooey.
  19. Beg barter buy & sell - Chapala is a Facebook group and its purpose is just what it says. There seems to be one or more per metropolitan area and if you are so inclined you can wander around and find similar groups for Guadalajara, Telaquepaque, Zapopoan etc... and then specific population have them. One of the best is the medical student population group which I can't remember the name of they ell whole households of items and their vehicles.
  20. This is not a problem for me anywhere else on the internet. Why can't you guys get this kind of thing under control? Even if it costs you money you have a reputation and this type of problem will take it away very quickly. Protect yourself and you protect us a bit more than you have been doing.
  21. I would ignore them only every time I go there they are closed, no one answers a phone or message of any sort.
