  1. Chapala.com administrators - again, since it has been so long and so many changes since 2013 shouldn't you put a LOCK on threads older than 2 years. They would still be there for background info but it is so wrong to let items like this show up 5 or 6years after they are valid. It cannot be that hard to lock down a date every 4 months. I suggest June 2017.
  2. Why would you mention the facebook page on there. Take it down, Anita Caldwell


  3. Encarcion Rosas and the Carreterra (Farmacia Guadalajara and Donas Donuts Lloyds and the mediterranean food truck are at that corner) at the light turn toward the mountain, north and drive up Encarcion Rosas. Go past the first cross street and in the middle of the block on the right side, west, is a store with a big sign in it that says, "Helios". The store is just about at the tree in the roadway.
  4. A 8-10 inch trunked ficus has a root ball that can be dug out by hand with a couple guys and a pick axe. It is actually easier if you trim the leafy top back hard and then deep shovel cut (poacher spade works great) around the root ball out about 18 inches from the trunk. Then rock the trunk to loosen the grip on the earth and push it over to pull the root ball out of the ground and then cut it up.
  5. Natasha you are so sweet to worry. The point of capturing feral cats is to move them away from the neighborhood where they have become comfortable. One cat is ill and will be put down. The other cat will be snipped and released kilometers away near a barn in a village. Someone there is expecting the cat so it will not be alone in the relocation. These feral cats are a serious health hazard to my own 4 indoor/outdoor cats and to my neighbors 2 indoor/outdoor cats and the single cat next door who is strictly indoor but whom they lament about at the house windows. They defecate on miradors
  6. The mail service which we used for a couple years did the incoming packages like this: The package went to the Laredo address. It was a drop office. We went there once to pick an item up on our way into the country. The small 10 x 10 space had some shelves and one table and the room was a mess of opened boxes, pieces parts of items strewn about and cast off packaging thrown in the corner. Once the girl opened the box she took the item in its sales package and put it in a suit case. She was paid to do only one suitcase a week.The suitcase went across the border into N. Laredo in her mot
  7. bdlington you have been here a long time and are fluent and uou cannot tell me you haven't figured out that restaurants reason for being in business after 3 years and no business patrons. Anyway, Ashley B, you will have a lot of fun here with the kids. Take the bus into Chapala and at the eastern end of the Malecon are some great restaurants for seafood. The patio on the eastern end by the government buildings and brightly painted CHAPALA tourist sign for photos makes guacamole tableside which is always fun. Go to Ajijic Newbies facebook page and join and there you
  8. Who has one of these that we can use to capture two feral male cats in the neighborhood? One at a time for vet trips. Not only for snipping but we think one is ill and putting the domesticated cats on our block at risk. We need to get him to the vet first. Thanks.
  9. I am on the hunt for 1/4 hardy board and need to give them a call. Need a piece 36 x48. Anyone have the number. Thanks.
  10. A card afternoon would be fun. There is a Euchre group meeting at the Blue Moon on Tuesdays about 1 that seats 3 or 4 tables every week. There is plenty of room. The drinks are cold and he does have good food so some of us come early and nibble.
  11. https://www.facebook.com/groups/273139823133380/?fref=gc&dti=528636037269927&hc_location=ufi is the face book page for Gay Alliance Ajijic/Chapala
  12. https://www.facebook.com/notes/gringos-ajijic-lakeside/lakeside-drivers-and-taxis/1783082931752976/ This is file of private drivers. Most will come to ZMG Guadalajara to pick you up and return you that day. Several have vans for 3 adults and 3 children. This is not the least expensive way but probably the best way to get a full day without a lot of hassle. Join the FAcebook page. You do have to join the group to access the names and card pictures. Everybody should anyway because the info on FAcebook is more like we used to get on this site and MExconnect. Everyt
  13. I have a gallon of it out in my garage. There are recipes for making it on Pinterest.com.
  14. Thanks for posting that it was aired. I had forgotten all about it. Let's hope nobody watches BBC. We are full up.
  15. Yep, lots of revenue. Just like the parking meter debacle. Money in pockets that is all it is going to be.
  16. We are also from Ohio and when we left in 2005 our financial guys had us "divorce" the state of Ohio. We wrote a letter to the Secretary of State and copied the Tax Department that we were leaving the state with no intention of returning and since we were leaving the US we would not be establishing state tax liability in another state. Under these rules we had to leave for 5 years an if we returned within 5 years we would owe state taxes on the intervening years. We allowed our state drivers license to expire and got Mexican licenses. Before we left we registered our vehicles with Clay co
  17. slabs on the laterals in Tonala, into center off the ramp turn left at the light about 3 blocks on the left.
  18. Anyone know who was driving this around Ajijic this morning. Baby blue.
  19. We are very pleased with our construction crew. However they do not do the fine details inside that I need to have to finish. Paint lines are crooked..etc... So if you know of a finish crew for some surface concrete work, painting, and door installation please send me their info. I know everyone is busy but maybe someone's timing is off on their project. THanks.
  20. Open one or two savings accounts connected to your checking account and get debit cards for checking account, Savings 1 and Savings 2. Then transfer between them. If one card gets eaten you have two remaining.
  21. I prefer the Spanish Facebook page. Everything gets put on there quickly.
  22. We love watching the shipping lanes in Manzanillo because my husband childhood neighbor Steinbrenner owned shipping company and he got all the neighbor boys their maritime cards and jobs on the ships for a few weeks each summer. We have stayed at the Pink Posada (charmingly retro) and just to the north at a private condo complex. Beach and cards all day long. OR try Melaque try the Posada Pablo www.posadapablodetarso.com 3153555707 o 3555717.
