  1. Yes. That was my point early. Best to start a separate topic for those who want to discuss real estate and currencies. This is about seamstresses.
  2. I would also like to know what the problems with her work were.
  3. This has really gotten off topic! My original question was about Rossy (this is how she spelled her name for me).
  4. I don't the poster said it was quoted in US prices. Probably he was just converting for the sake of explanation.
  5. None of my items are custom made. It's all alterations and very basic.
  6. I'd like to hear from people who use her services. I thought it was odd that the times I brought her work she was unable to give me a price.
  7. No one said anything about it being earth shattering. I mentioned it because it was a lack of response and correction to a simple item and it was not done. It is a small thing, but the point is, along with the other things, it adds up. I think the store is nice and the staff mostly helpful, but restaurant wise, it's disappointing.
  8. Also, several months ago I was in the bakery section and told him that one of the signs on the bakery items (in French) was misspelled. On another visit, I noticed it had not been corrected.
  9. Several months ago, I was talking with someone who trains and counsels restaurants. One comment stuck with me and it applied to Pancho's. You do not place cold items which need to remain cold next to hot items on a buffet and this was the case at Pancho's.
  10. Yes. A great response. Being open to improving versus defensiveness is professionalism. Anything else is immature and amateurish.
  11. I agree with the need for a local bank. So much more convenient! Relying on ATM not a good idea and limits on how much cash you can get, then the problems with the machines....just not worth it. Better to spend the time going through the process of opening a local account. Dealing with live person is better.
  12. I also had terrible experience at Pancho's. Was there one evening by myself and ordered a salad. I was the only customer. Salad never came. After about thirty minutes, I just left. Another time, I was there with friends for their steak dinner and it was terrible.
  13. I tried completing the form on their web site and it will not accept my phone number. I called the phone numbers, and it is taking me nowhere. Perhaps I don't understand all that it says. Any suggestions?
  14. My experience with On Line Notary. First thing to know, is that many government entities and private ones are unfamiliar with the validity of on line notary servies, and therefore, will not accept the document as notarized. I had many documents I needed notarized and the on line service did have the good sense to suggest I call the government agency to see if they would accept this notary. They would not. The problem is this is a fairly new way of getting this done, and they have no experience with it. I did get one document done by the on line notary, (that the recipient would accept) however, I was unable to get a legible printed copy although it was clear on the screen.
  15. Met with Arturo. Very nice man, however, he said he has no experience with those types of plants, so if someone has another recommendation, please let me know.
  16. I am adding additional comments to my previous post. After I hired another handyman ( a much more competent one this time), I learned that that the materials to build my fence, which Marcos ordered and had me pay for which were delivered, were not the height I asked for, an insufficient amount of meters and hardware to get the job done.
  17. Everyday police on the highway heading toward the airport have someone pulled over. Does anyone know what that's about?
  18. I should amend my comments. I don't think ALL vaccines are a bad idea. Certainly, there are some worth taking such as polio and others mentioned above. I just think they are overdone in some cases.
  19. I am looking for someone who can design my landscaping to include a few edibles, herbs, medicinal plants. I am in Chapala Haciendas. Any recommendations?
  20. Could you please provide his name and contact information? Thanks!
  21. I don't trust vaccines. Do some research on vaccines in general before you allow someone to inject you. Also, isn't it interesting that vaccines normally take years, and now all of a sudden, one will be available quickly. I don't get vaccines, flu or otherwise. Don't believe what doctors tell you. They don't know everything. They ar sold just like everyone else. A perfect example. A couple of years ago, I overhead a woman say she trusted her doctor and that he said it didn't matter which flu type you were guarding against, and that the flu vaccine strengthened the immune system. When I looked on the CDC website, it stated that anyone with a compromised immune system should not take the flu vaccine........
  22. All those comments about not needing to carry it with you are correct. I do keep a regular copy in my wallet in case I need some type of ID besides my driver's license. I used to use that copy at my bank as ID, however, now they do want the original for withdrawals. In five years, no one has asked to see it other than the bank. Some people just thrive and operate on fear of every rule. Don't let that be you.
