  1. Try Maskaras Clinic. Call them to see if they can X-ray the required area.

    I had lamb shank at Pale. They call it osso bucco on the menu but it is lamb shank. It is an addition to their revised menu.
  3. You need to contact your own bank. That is also what HSBC will tell you.
  4. My maid, who was supposed to work one day a week, for five hours, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., never, ever showed up on time. She'd come any time between 9:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. but always left before 2:00 p.m. Her reason was the bus. Her pay was never docked. If I left the house, she would leave soon after. About once a month she would not show up at all, without calling or letting me know in advance. She did not get paid for those days. I got tired of her behavior and started making her sign for payments, noting date, arrival time and departure time. I made a note of days that she did not show up. She finally just stopped showing up at all.
  5. This thread is about wages for maids which has morphed into tipping at restaurants. Why not leave the percentage of tipping up to individual discretion instead of arguing what is the correct amount in Mexico? No tipping in Canada does't mean no tipping required in Mexico. 20% tipping in the U.S. doesn't mean you have to do the same here. Do what you think is right.
  6. I just ordered a set of dishes from Amazon Mexico on a Wednesday night, using a US credit card. The cc company sent me an e-mail asking if this was my transaction. I clicked "yes." AmazonMx sent me an e-mail that the order was received and I would get my package the following Tuesday. I received an e-mail the following day (Thursday) informing me that I would received my package on Friday. When the package was shipped they informed me and I could track it's movement. It was delivered on Friday evening.

    Panettone at SL

    The Costco panettone is the traditional one. Just don't be tempted to eat it all in one sitting.
  8. The orange and blue, plain colored sponges, are for wiping surfaces, e.g. kitchen counter tops. The other two, with the fancy designs, are for scrubbing dishes, and pots and pans. The textures are different. Superlake was out of the orange and blue type sponges, but have since restocked.
  9. Superlake has restocked this item. I bought some this afternoon.
  10. I am appalled when I see a dog's bottom resting on a chair seat or cushion which is meant for a person. The dog's owner may think its bottom is clean; I beg to differ. I don't want a naked human bottom on the seat, either. Both instances are unhygienic. I vote with my pocket book and my feet. There is no point complaining - nothing has changed in the 16 years I've lived here and it looks like nothing is likely to change. Owners who bring their dogs to restaurants think not only is their dog their best friend, it's their only friend. It's a sad situation for these owners and I feel sorry for them, but that doesn't mean I have to put up with their bad behavior.
  11. There are two restaurants that I go to very frequently, Ajijic Tango and Fonda Dona Lola, that do not allow pets. Both restaurants do very well. Ajijic Tango does not accept reservations at the weekend as they are too busy. Restaurants can do very well while following Mexican law.
  12. Jualberto Real (cell phone no. 331-026-5450) repaired my Whirlpool dishwasher and replaced the panel.
  13. I spoke with the Notario in Villa Nova and she informed me that she was not authorized to notarize my one page letter which is written in English.
  14. Does anyone have the telephone no. of the notario in Villa Nova? Thanks.
  15. Are his meds generic, branded or both. Thanks.
