  1. Are local property taxes still being paid in Chapala in the big municipal building across from the church?
  2. Are high thread-count cotton sheets available for sale anyplace Lakeside? Looking for NOB-sized Queen set.
  3. About the fly issue- I went to a zoo once that had hardly any flies or bees around their eating area. I asked what they were doing, and was told by a woman at their reception desk, after she checked with someone else, "Oscar Meyer". Huh?? They put a hole in the top of a jar and Oscar Meyer lunch meat in the bottom. The flies or bees went in and couldn't get back out.
  4. Thanks very much- we'll check out Manix!
  5. Does anyone know if a restaurant or caterer in the Lakeside area is doing roast turkey to take out? We have relatives coming for Thanksgiving and want to have a traditional dinner at our home, but don't have lots of hours to cook a turkey. Thanks!
  6. Black widow spiders are black and red and look very distinctive, have a "messy-looking" web with strong fibers, and hide in dark places. Thanks all for the tips! (Just beginning to check this out- will try not to kill others that aren't venomous.)
  7. Has anyone had experience with a good exterminator especially for black widow spiders? Thanks!
  8. For clothes (in good condition) Mia's has been a good place for us. Mia's consigns mens & womens clothes- accessories & jewelry too.
  9. Yves' Restaurant has a big pool (with fountain jets) in their garden & tables with umbrellas around the pool under the trees The water makes the setting extra beautiful!
  10. Tried an in-line water filter- fountain water was looking sparkling clean. Then we put in chlorine tabs and the water turned an orange color! A Mexican friend said that will happen when copper is present in the water when you put in chlorine tabs. We heard some people use white vinegar instead of chlorine tabs, but not about how much to use (our fountain is 8' across at the bottom and has one 2nd level) This year has been by far the most problematic in the last 7 yrs. for our fountain! Thanks all for the tips! If anyone knows about how much vinegar to use and how often you need to add more???
  11. The water coming from the street at our casa in Ajijic has had lots of sediment in it this past year (more than the last 4 years)- our fountain filter is functioning but can't collect all the sediment. The only way we have been able to clean it is to drain it and start over. A small vacuum thing you connect to a hose to that we bought is picking up some debris on the bottom, but not working well for the sediment. The fountain is two levels & 8 ft across on the bottom level. Looking for maintenance ideas!!, thoughts about cleaning equipment & where it may be purchased lakeside (if possible). Thanks!
  12. I bought one here lakeside- not sure if it was at Soriana or the dollar store on the Ajijic plaza. I think it was the dollar store. White, canvas-type cotton & inexpensive.
