    LOOKING for Household Cook

    Apachewoman: I have lots of mexican friends who are very good cooks. And they could use the work. The problem is transportation. But they could take the bus to your house. If you still need one I can propose it to them: Questions: 1. Do they have to speak english? 2. What would you pay? 3. How many meals prepared per day? Thanks

    Searching but not finding

    Walmart has not had the egg shell. We have them on all our beds but have to pay dearly....go east from walmart, look to the right and you will see a mattress store. They have them and also Coppell in Chapala has them.
  11. Hello Jistime: Just give him a call (331 267 9364) and he will be happy to come by and give you an estimate. He is like family so im speaking freely for him. He lives right here on the border of San Antonio and Riberas so he is very close to you. Thank you for considering him.
  12. Thank you so very much. We are trying to make a life here and we do love it. I am a gringa and we have a 2 year old son. Thank you so much for using Ernesto. He is such a hard worker, when he doesnt have landscaping he works construction with Chuy Jimenez from 8am to usually 7pm hard labor so he is not afraid of hard work, something that every wife appreciates.....lol...he has always done what it takes to feed his family.
  13. Hello, I am the wife of Ernesto Barron. He is very knowledgeable on landscaping. Him and his father both worked with a landscaping company in Wichita, ks. They also had done their own work on the side. I am so greateful for your kind words! Thank you. -April Barron
  14. Awe that is so nice of you for your kind words....this is sputnik....Ernesto is working at my house and works so hard. We are planting a garden and he works so hard. His father and mother are moving here from Durango who actually taught him landscaping to join him in his business. They are very knowledgeble and their work ethic is what is so important also and honesty. Anyway, thank you for using him.

    I agree. Most of our friends are mexican friends born and raised here. One is an expert construction man, can build a home from raw land, electricity, plumbing, everything and he always says, BUY land.... build your own house,,,much cheaper....and dont pay "gringo" prices for this land......their "mexican" priced land can be found, word of mouth. Dont fall for this high priced land marketed to your white faces.....If everyone would do that the prices would fall significantly.....But i guess if you have millions to spend on a house, more power to you.
