  1. I like the cinnamon rolls--they're made with croissant dough--but they're different from what most of us have learned to expect. For something more in line with expectations try the croissants, especially the almond ones. We think they are fantastic! Savta has an astoundingly wide selection of pastries to go with their espresso, often including something I'd never expect--or want--matcha croissants, topped with pine nuts. The sourdough bagels taste great, although, as others have commented, the last time we got some they were flat. Plus they have a good selection of craft beers, although not a
  2. Thanks, Gal...So now the question is: if I can download BofA mobile app to a smartphone, say, bought at TelCel, will our VPN allow me to deposit using that app? Pretty sure I can download mobile app to a tablet--but the iOS I have on mine is too old--and maybe that would work better. Hmmm...BTW and off topic-Is the main diff between a tablet and smartphone that you can make calls on the latter?
  3. I have a B of America account, but don't have a smart phone on which to put their mobile banking app. I'd appreciate hearing about a phone/plan that works with this type of e-deposit...Perhaps through Amazon Mexico or other online store, or through Telcel (where their employee was unsure I could download the app on the phone they were selling)? Gracias!
  4. Thanks for the suggestion and kudos to Sr. Flores. The job is done.
  5. Thanks for the suggestion, Harry. I'll give them a call. Sounds like it might be too much hassle, but we'll see.
  6. I'd like to repair a dangerous spot on the sidewalk here in Ajijic Centro. OK with absentee owner. Looking for recommendation and contact info for person experienced in this sort of work. Thanks.
  7. I have been filing our US tax returns using our Mexico address and the Get My Payment site recently showed me that an EIP check had been "scheduled" to be sent on May 22. We haven't yet received it so today I called the number referred to on a linked IRS site ( https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center#issuedbutlost) for this situation: 800-919-9835. After a 40 min wait a helpful IRSer did some research from my tax return info and informed me that I had been scheduled to be sent a debit card, but was among a number of people who lived in certain locations we we
  8. Yes, the Ajijic PO located near Donas Donuts has moved. I was just there and the inside was being dismantled. One of the workers told me the PO had moved to Chapala, in el Centro, three blocks from the plaza on Degollado.
  9. Re: Angus I just checked to see if the check letter was in our nearby Ajijic PO. Found out it had just been closed and moved to Chapala.
  10. to kmetzger: Same boat as you. Get My Payment site says my payment was "scheduled" (sent?) for 22 May. I went to https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center#issuedbutlost to begin doing as you plan to do. Today, as the site suggests, I'll try calling 800-919-9835. If that doesn't work I'll file form 3911, linked on the site, and send to Austin. Good luck.
  11. As you did, Tim, I also worked with Mauricio and always looked forward to seeing him at the garden, and after a while, all over town. Have you checked out Dionico Morales's facebook page or La Peña de Santos Rico's? There are some good pictures there of Mauricio, including in his role as a village shaman hosting events at the gallery on Constitución. I sent an email to Sandy B at LCS promoting the idea of a bench there, and/or plaque, tree planting, photo, etc. Another thought would be to commission Dionicio to make his friend's portrait to have hung at LCS. What do you think? Tom
  12. Donations to help Mauricio's family with expenses can be made at La Peña de Santos Rico gallery in Ajijic centro, Constitución 16. That's one block directly south of the plaza. Phone 376 766 0281.
  13. Thanks for posting this sad news, Tim. I loved Mauricio, getting to know him over the four years I worked with him in the garden. He made working there a treat and an education in the uses of plants. We've lost a real fun-loving, people-loving, gentle, always helpful and enlightened soul. Descansa en paz, Mauricio, amigo...
