  1. I have had no luck making any calls into Mexico from the US with my TelCel minutes that are supposedly good for all of North America.
  2. That's true. They are only pumped with lots of hormones and the chicken flooded with anti-biodics and, of course, the adrenaline that pumps through their body as they are killed.
  3. Anyone have any recommendations as to where to sell old jewelry for a fair price? Perhaps somewhere in Guadalajara?
  4. Then they must have moved. When I was going there, they were on the mountain side right by Chapala moving and Cafe Negro.

    That is great to hear as we want to grow them here.
  6. So here' a question as I am not a technical person. Does a dish on the roof not solve the problem?
  7. I am asking for the same reason. We are looking at houses, but don't want to live in a place where service is a chronic problem.
  8. I'd like to hear from people living in Brisas if, in fact, internet speed and service is a problem there. Some seem to be imply that the service is bad there. Comments, please.
  9. I suppose I did not ask the question correctly about why documents are checked, so I will ask it a different way. Once they look at your documents, do they stamp them, give you another document stating they have been checked or just look at you and say they are fine and you go on your way. It seems if they do nothing other that just look and say okay, then when you go to get the license, they really won't know whether they have been "checked."
  10. Where is City Hall General Secretary┬┤s office? Why do documents have to be checked on the 17th if you have everything on Spencer's list? Where will the mobile unit be located and at what time?
  11. From what I remember, if you are buying a new car, there is no fee as he gets paid by the dealer. The fee comes into play when you are purchasing a used vehicle.

    Ok. I will go back to Wal-mart ant look there. Thanks.

    Anyone know where to find canned artichoke hearts? I have already tried Walmart and SuperLake. I normally just eat the fresh ones, however, this is for a soup recipe. Also wondering if anyone here is growing them in their yard?
  14. I did find it! A friend of mine came with me and we stopped in for some goodies. I must say it was quite good. I spent some of my childhood years in France and I remember the bakeries...... I am very fussy and the croissants were excellent. Also, very nice they actually do speak French, so a chance to speak the language as well. I will go back and try some of the other treats.
  15. Where is a good place to order contact lenses at a reasonable rate?
  16. She will do it for you. We are currently out of the area, however, we will be back there on Wednesday and can meet with you anytime after that. You will like her. She was with the Peace Corps and has lived in many places and much experience with animals, gardening, etc. and is a very sweet person. I sent you a private message. I don't know if you saw it. I will call you upon our arrival. We will be back there late Wednesday afternoon.
  17. We have a friend from the US looking to do some pet sitting. She has a veterinary background & farming background. She's great with plants as well. She is also fluent in Spanish. Please let me know if you know anyone needing her services. She will pet sit in exchange for a place to stay.
  18. Here is an update. It works just as Sparks stated. I brought four documents to the Chapala location. These were copies: Passport. Permanente, CURP and one original utility bill from Telmex which was not in our name. No lease or any originals were requested. No questions were asked. Now I think I had an oversight as evidently there is some type of booklet from what I can determine, based on some of the posts. The woman who processed us said nothing about any booklet, however, I know I cannot count on their communicating necessary information. Could someone please tell me where I need to go for the booklet and what to ask for?
  19. I am still asking the original question. Where is the location of SP Centro de Salud or the list of locations? There seems to be no consistency as to whether or not I need my lease and does it need to be in Spanish? RV no longer lives here, so I am not convinced I can rely on his information.
  20. Do you have to ask for this booklet or is it provided at the time you sign up?
  21. No lease in any language needed? Where is the nearest Centro de Salud? We live near Chapala. Did electric bill have to be in your name?
