  1. Are the doctors in at Segure Popular in Chapala or San Antonio Tlay? Are they working on shorter hours? I appreciate any help.
  2. Tried to phone Upscale Resale today but their phone is not in service. I suspect they are closed because of the virus but other than facebook and phone, does anyone know how to contact them about their items or money? Another phone number or email?
  3. Are any of the banks open? Are the ATMs working and full? Have there been long line ups at either?
  4. Does anyone have a phone number for Coppel's on Mederios in Chapala? I have tried every number I could find and none of them are working. I emailed them and have not rec'd any reply. Any help is much appreciated.
  5. Is there a laundry pick up service at lakeside? If so, do you have their phone number? Thanks for any help.
  6. Many thanks Spencer, putting this together answers a lot of peoples questions they wouldn't think to ask.
  7. A block and a half east, toward Chapala, from Super Lake there is a church, then New Look Studios hair salon and within a door or two there is the iron work shop. His wares are out front and I have had work done there without problems. The nice part is that you tell him what you want, size and type of iron you want him to use.....made to order. 😁
  8. If being a thorn in someone's side is not getting the answers you want, why not go and get the answers yourself. Then you can let us know. I appreciate the work these people are doing to let us know of what is or isn't going on in our community.
  9. I need a washing machine repair person at Lakeside soooon! Neither phones of Gualberto Real work. Is there another local good repair person? All help is appreciated. 😊
  10. Work may be started in Chapala but once the photo shoot with the dignitaries takes place it will not be finished. How much longer till the brown parking meters are removed? They are unsightly but the big story went on and on and on.....and they will probably be there for another few years. Then there are the cameras that were installed at the big intersection by restaurant row in Chapala. I don't remember when they were installed but are they used, still work? And then the 3 month project burying the utilities and resurfacing Gonzalez Gallo for 3 blocks. It was a slow winter work project that lasted for more than a year. Then along came the big photo shoot and if you drive past that section, you will see that the utilities are not connected to the houses. That was 2015........and it is also the only place I have seen a speed bump only in the parking lane! So, yes Chapala has its problems too. Would I leave? NO!
  11. Welcome to our little place in Mexico, chill out and have a little laugh....and make the world go round!
  12. Is the same Chopo that has a big blue sign on that new building just down from Pancho's?
  13. Oh Bonbelle we recognize you are a newbie and we are just trying to toughen your skin so you can ward off the barbs and enjoy a good laugh. And every once in awhile, you might see a very helpful bit of information so stay with us.
  14. Of course the sun on the oil will burn but why would you spray any plant with anything while in the sun. The naranja tree gets dapple sun about 2 - 3 hrs in the afternoon and has no burn signs and is doing fine.
  15. Checking my plants today and the 5' naranja tree was covered in white fly with a few scale as well. How do they arrive on the plants, on the wind, climb from below or via birds? What is the latest method of getting rid of both? Please not the garlic or tobacco mixture. Is there a spray or a companion plant that can keep these pests away? Appreciate any help. 😊A happy solution that works. I found this on the internet but don't know where. ~~~You can mix up a simple recipe for an insecticide spray for whiteflies right in your kitchen. First, make a base mixture with 1 tablespoon of regular dish soap (not one with added bleach or an antibacterial soap) and 1 cup of vegetable oil. Pour it into a bottle that can be sealed, and shake well to mix. Note: This recipe must be diluted before using it on your plants. Diluting the Recipe Now that you have your base, you can mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of it into a cup of water. Mix this in a spray bottle, and shake it well. Oil and water do not mix, so it needs to be shaken often as you are using it. Using the Spray Once your spray is properly diluted and mixed, you can spray your affected plants. Be sure to spray the undersides of leaves, since this is where the whiteflies tend to be. This mixture kills adult whiteflies and smothers the larvae and eggs as long as they are covered in the spray, so be sure to apply it liberally. Reapply as needed after rain or watering your plants. I sprayed till the tree was dripping and next day there was no sign of any insects. I sprayed again 10 days later and there was no adverse effects to the plant.~~~ 😄 A simple solution, 😁 happy plant, 😊 a happy gardener.
