  1. Add 4 tablespoons of flour to any quiche recipe and it becomes crustless.
  2. Mainecoons - you do know that man is one of the most prolific public entertainment pedophiles in England, right? If you are a man and you are not asking the woman you are accompanying out if what you are wearing is acceptable then you need to learn how to dress appropriately at all times. Clean and pressed goes a long way to that goal. If it isn't denim it should always have a crease - khakis especially can look rumpled.
  3. It was a special event celebration why even mention the negatives after the fact.
  4. You say you are going to a remote area however if it's near a population center look at Zipcar.com. They have hourly, daily and multi-day rates from a lot of locations and now even have one-way availability which is mostly on the east coast. Check your entering airport for availability and nearby universities and medical centers.
  5. I would look to list with a Mexican realtor out of Guadalajara. El Limon isn't on the top of anyone's list for consideration but like you say things change.
  6. When is the Consulate expected at LCS in may for passport renewals? Do you have to sign up before? Thanks.
  7. When is the May trip for the Guadalajara Consulate scheduled. It is time to renew passports. Thanks.
  8. We had a very large family ensconced over Semana Santa in houses on the large estate. They were noisy and noisier at all hours. No music though which was so unusual. However twice during the two weeks a big drone landed in our yard - once just missing the pool. Our cats were all excited. Each time a teenage boy and an adult male came to the door and politiely apologized and asked to retrieve the drone. I never gave my privacy a thought. Why, because the drones were not hoovering outside my windows they were skirting past the garden and one hit a branch of bouganvillea sticking up wa
  9. No one has even a suggestion. Darn. Our youngest wants to knock these two classes off her degree requriements while sheis here withus this summer. If you think of someone let me know.
  10. There is no reason to get reid of a perfectly good car. Have the person who is not on the title get a PErmanente and have the person who is on the title get a Temporal. For 4 years you are grandfathered in if immigration rules change since the temporal can convert to permanente as family.
  11. We would like to find a reliable Spanish teacher for lessons twice a week of 1 1/2 hour each, Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday after 11 am but not later than 5 pm for at least 3 months. The teacher would need to follow a college syllabus since this is for language credit via independent study/internet to satisfy a requirement. The materials will be provided but they should be used as your guidelines and for teaching to the testing points. There will be two students however plan to start from zero. Send me an email to caldwellmexico@gmail.com
  12. Oh how nice a thought but no can do. We expect it will take them two weeks to come out from under the chairs and sofas. And another two weeks to adapt to not fighting. We have 4 cats who troop in and out all day long until about 10 when everyone is in sung and tight. Since the 2 cousin cats will be here for almost 4 months everybody is going to have to figure it out. So 6 girl cats - all spayed and declawed. I am not the cat person in our household, just the arranger person. The other two, the caat lovers, will have to be on their toes and quick moving for the next 4 months.
  13. This is the time of year when a lot of the medical students in Guadalajara are selling their belongings and vehicles as they graduate. They generally have very very nice vehicles. You can find these items on most of the flea market buy-sell Facebook pages also the buy-sell page for Chapala area also has cars liste onit, there is one now for $37,000 pesos. You have to go on Facebook, put in a few search words for the area and troll thru the resulting pages. start with MexPat Guadalajara page. I have friens who say they don't want to "do" Facebook because somebody is watching y
  14. We have a younger 40s couple from Guadalajara coming Thursday for a 5 day weekend to check out Ajijic and whether or not they want to purchase a weekend house. They, and the other couple with them, are on a "looky-lou" visit with an itinerary drawn up by their Guadalajaran real estate agent. The children are with grandparents at the beach. She told me they have 4 village properties to see that are not on the "expat" market but are known in the city to have owners who are open to selling at the right price. She also said they thought with the passion play and great crowds in town they would
  15. We have about 2400 sf in a village two story 2/2 with 2 living rooms and a dining room and an extra den office on the second floor. Pantry shelving, windows, polishing and kitchen cupboards are on a monthly rotation. Wiping out the rerigerator and freezer are every other week. All the weeks laundry is done, folded in the basket for the ironing lady and the personal items taken to the bedrooms and towels/linens put away stocked in the baths. We have 4 cats so every upholstered item is vacuumed in addition to numerous area rugs. We also have a 2/2 single story 1000sf rental next door where a
  16. We know of houses selling mostly between $2-300K US and a lot of that inventory has moved quickly. This is also reflected in the lack of an adequate rental market at the $750-1000 US monthly range. I solicited daily for 2 to 3 beds/ba, maybe a den, a yard, walkable etc... for under $800. That is a dream anymore.
  17. What do you expect the housekeeper to do? and what would you like her to do? I know of a couple coming available when their present employers move north but they each have varying strengths and weaknesses. Also there are not many who will break up their day to a 2 hour segment multiple days a week without compensation that make it worth their while.
  18. WEll I found one set of information points Updated Antiparasitic Treatment Rules for Pets Entering Mexico Posted on February 10, 2017 by yucalandia February 10, 2017 Public Service Announcement: Our helpful readers continue to update us all on what rule enforcement changes are taking place around Mexico. “New Enforcement of Regulation re: Bringing Dogs into Mexico via Air Airport officials at the airport in Puerto Vallarta are enforcing a regulation requiring dogs ( not sure about cats) require the following: PRIOR to arrival, your dog must have be tr
  19. Have that available. Send me a PM with your contact info.
  20. We have two cats coming to stay with us for the summer, they will be accompanied by family. I cannot find a definitive list of what is required and the timeline needed for shots etc. I know there has been major trouble in the PV airport regarding tick and flea medicines and the need to have the actual box that was administered to the cats must be with you in addition to having it listed by the vet. I can throw money at trouble at the last minute but I would rather not have to do that at anytime. I would also like to know if it is better to come into GDL in the middle of the afternoon o
  21. We do call Australian family. Free is good.
  22. If I purchase a HP with Windows 10 can I switch the language to permanently be English? Last computer I bought 6 years go had to have the operating system reloaded for ENglish. The last time my present ocmputer was in for service I asked the service fellow if I bought one at Costco would it require the same rigamarole and he said no just make sure it has Windows 10 - and a bunch of other versions but that is the one I remember most. I hate having to get a new computer. I could probably deal with the spanish but the other household member would be unhappy.
  23. Just call each and aski them to waive the foreign transaction fee for 60 to 90 days. Tell them you are furnishing a house and want to put everything on their card. I bet they offer to double your limit. They can do this you just have to ask.
