  1. Did you really buy a Hoverboard and then USE the thing?! I was checking to see if you're still alive and am relieved to see you posted two hours ago!

  2. I need cabinets too, as the OP says not fancy but good. Can someone give me a ballpark figure of cost? In the US that is figured on a "10x10" installation. Thanks.
  3. My neighbor seems to be having a mental breakdown. Since his wife left about a month ago he's been getting worse, and this morning he is acting very strange. A day or two ago he hinted at suicide to my roommate. Are there any mental health resources available in the area? He is Mexican and I don't want to get him in trouble, landing in jail or locked in a psych ward or something. I also do not want to get involved with him, but I would like to direct him towards help if there is any. Maybe a priest? I have no idea how things work here.
  4. Thanks, we'll give it a try!
  5. I was a little put off by that too, because quite a bit of work and money go into a good meatloaf. Contrary to popular opinion, unless all you're adding is a lot of stale bread, meatloaf is NOT a cheap meat extender. 25p seems fair. Karaoke, Meatloaf or not, would be a fun extra!
  6. OK, thanks for the non-answers. Why do I bother...
  7. Sadly, smoking outside seems to be common--I wish it were the other way around! Are there any places that ban smoking entirely?
  8. We went to Salvador's and had a good meal. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
  9. Thanks grc, I appreciate your help. Merry Christmas!
  10. Looking for some, a buffet would be nice but not necessary.
  11. I'm going to check out her store today, sounds great! She's on the northwest corner of Constitucion and Enc. Rosas. The link didn't work for me, maybe this will. https://www.facebook.com/Marlowes-Marvelous-Market-911290148942374/

    Rabid, ha! Yes I do notice the "argumentative" nature of the board and rarely post because of it. Anyway I hope people will try Opa! The food is very good and the owners are nice--not sure whether they both own it, or the young American man owns it and the woman cooks.

    I'm the one who first mentioned dogs. First, I had no idea allowing dogs was illegal; in fact I have seen lists of restaurants that allow them, and there are many. Second, we walked past one day and noticed Opa for the first time. We had our dog with us and asked if it was alright to bring him in. The owner said yes and then immediately asked if he'd like some water; we were very impressed with his kindness and thoughtfulness. We don't make it a habit of taking our dog to restaurants, but when we occasionally do we make sure he is under or close alongside our table and move him if necessary, j
  14. I know this isn't suitable for most folks, but chickens and especially guinea fowl love ticks. I had both for several years NOB, and the day after I stopped keeping them the ticks showed up. Both male and female guineas are noisy, but female chickens are quiet. I'd rather keep a couple of hens than spray poison.
  15. Why? They haven't closed the Guadalupe Victoria shop and I hope it stays open!
  16. Is this place still open? I sense a lunch/dessert combo in my near future!
  17. Will Santa be going through again? I'd love to see it! When I was a child in New England, Santa went through the entire, very spread-out farm town on the back of a flat bed truck, in his sleigh with his fake reindeer, and gave all us kids a promising wave. I don't remember any sirens, but it was lots of fun! Even today in my tiny New England town, on Halloween night they block off the main road, a police car gets in front of the kids in costume and a fire truck behind, and they all parade one block from the police station to the fire station, sirens blasting, where they have a big party.

    Yes they are not doing enough to promote themselves but the mostly Greek food is very good and the owners nice. The tzatziki is the best I've ever had. Dog friendly and no smoking, and I think they're open till 8. They serve locally-brewed Corazon de Malta beer, yum. I'm waiting for them to get in some baklava!
  19. Thanks for this thread! i took my dog to her today and was happy with her thoroughness. He's itchy and has scratched himself raw in a couple places, plus he has lumps on his neck (new) and his ears are chronically infected. The itch and ears were treated in the US before we left but persist. No idea how her prices compare locally, but it was ~$50US for the visit, a skin test, a shot to calm the itch, pills for the lumps, and ear drops. Easily a $200 value, and she was very gentle. She is up the hill behind Oxxo. She sells some hypoallergenic grain-free dog foods but did not try to push them on
  20. It's at Colon #2, Ajijic. To me it's worth a try just because they provide water bowls, so nice of them! http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g499405-d8670923-Reviews-Opa-Ajijic.html
  21. Thanks for the welcome and tips! Now that I have most of the basics, I look forward to tomorrow's tianguis, and I'll try the one today too. I'll try the pet food place in Riberas too. I have to avoid Costco or I will come home with gigundo boxes of junk food!
  22. Thank you! I didn't make it yesterday but I didn't know it existed. Isn't the humongous one in Chapala on Mondays too? I went there once but it's too overwhelming for a newbie.
  23. In case you didn't find your specialty birds, I've raised meat birds and they will behave like regular birds if given the chance. I only fed them twice a day and they did not grow too fast. They foraged and ran--well, lumbered--around and even flew several feet before their time was up. Not one developed ascites or leg problems, and the meat wasn't mushy. Given what I'd read about them being disgusting filthy lumps, I was surprised by how clean and delightful they were if allowed to be normal chickens. I hated to see them go, but they sure were delicious!
  24. Hi all, we arrived last week, missed all the tianguis, but I was able to find almost everything on my list at Super Lake, including Adams peanut butter, BF mayo without lime, and unscented laundry soap! It's Seventh Generation brand in a brown paper bottle, and I am shocked at how clean it gets the clothes; it actually works better than the Cheer I've been using. They also had Modelo Negra beer, which the liquor store next door did not. The one thing they didn't have was salted butter, which seems odd, but I got some at Lilyfher along with some Cabot cheese and cinnamon rolls, yum! I didn't pa
