  1. Great News! Molly is found and is just fine! I asked two of our hotel workers to go out this morning to look for her and they went all around the Lourdes area of Chapala, and on a small back street they came across a fraccionmento and in talking with the gardeners they found Molly! Apparently Molly had been staying there since Friday. Thank you for your concern, it's a miracle we found her! And the owners of course are super happy!
  2. Molly was spotted yesterday afternoon around 6pm in front of the Farmacia Guadalajara that is right next to Monte Carlo hotel in Chapala. They took a photo and it was definitely Molly, and she still had her collar on and her rabies certificate which is red and in the shape of a bone. Right now we have a couple of search parties out looking for her, if you see her please call the number on her collar, or you can also call 333 142 0012. Thanks!
  3. Looks like a small Lassie but more of a brown color. Has a collar and also a rabies certificate in the shape of a red bone. The name tag says 'Molly' and on the back is either the name of the owner, Peggy Mok, or the name Schnitzel along with an email address and phone number. and here's an additional phone number 331 283 9800 - The owners are quite distressed, thank you for your help. Molly and her owners lived in San Juan Cosala for a few years and just checked into the hotel today. - it is possible that Molly went back to her former residence in San Juan.
  4. Hello, I don’t usually post much on this forum but I have had some problems with phone fraud lately with Bancomer which I wanted to write about in case it happens to you. I have been in this area for about 12 years now and I have both debit and credit cards with Bancomer. About 9 months ago I got a call and they said they were calling from Bancomer and they were asking about a charge to my debit card, they asked if I had requested life insurance and they said there was a ‘pending’ charge of 4000 pesos. They asked if I had requested that and I told them no, and they said they could cancel that charge but they would have to do it right away and they just needed to know the 16 digits of my debit card. I told the lady that it is my policy not to give out that information over the phone and she got mad at me! She started yelling at me and saying I was crazy and that only she could stop that payment, otherwise I would be charged 4000 pesos. I noticed it was Friday afternoon after 4pm, so it was too late to go to the bank and talk to them about it. But since she got mad at me I figured she wasn’t professional and it was most likely a fraud. And as it turns out there was no such charge to my debit card, they were just trying to get me to give them the 16 digits of my debit card. And since then it has happened three more times, once about 3 months ago they said that I had a charge with Aeromexico for 1200 pesos, I told them that wasn’t me and they told me to hold the line as they were transferring me to another department. But again, it was the same thing, they wanted the 16 digits of my debit card wihich I refused to give them. And it has happened two more times in the last two days. One was a text I got from ‘Uber’ saying there was a charge for 1040 pesos and to call this number for ‘aclarations’. Same thing, I called and they wanted to know my 16 digits. The interesting thing is that they already knew the first 10 digits of my debit card, but I went to Bancomer and they said that all first 10 digits of their debit cadrs are the same, but it is the last 6 digits that change. And then again last night, they said I had another charge to my debit card and this time I played around with them and when she asked me for the full 16 digits I let her have it. 😊 And this morning I checked my account on line and there was no such charge. I am not sure if it is just Bancomer or other banks as well, but the bottom line is 'never give out the 16 digits of your bank card over the phone!' PS and another thing is not to speak Spanish with them. Since I have been here so long I speak Spanish but if I didn’t I wouldn’t have this problem!
  5. It’s not the Pacific coast but I know of a brand new 2 bedroom apartment in a quaint town called Puerto Morelos, about 30 minutes south of Cancun. The rent is $600 a month. For more details send me a PM.
  6. A couple of years ago there was a place in Riberas that offered this, - it was basically exercising on a stationary bike while breathing in oxygen. Does anyone know the people that started this and are they still around? Or has anyone had experience using this method? Thanks
  7. Rocky is back home! Somehow he went all the way to the Vista del Lago golf course, way on the other side of Chapala, about 19 kms from the hotel! Rocky came up to this wonderful couple on the golf course and was following them around, apparently he was all dirty and limping too. They took him home and then took him to the vet and also to get groomed and posted him on Facebook, and right away people started contacting me. We went out there this evening and sure enough it was him! And I just happened to know this couple as well! Rocky lost some weight but overall he is doing well and it's great to have him home! thanks everyone, Tom
  8. Hi did have a tag with his name on the front and my cell phone number on the back. He followed someone who was taking a back road into Chapala but he never made it back. We are putting up a lot of posters in this area and we are offering a 5000 pesos reward to whoever finds him. He is a large white dog, Akita mix with perhaps Labrador. - not really sure as he showed up fully grown but I have had him for about 8 years now. This is a very special dog... Please call me if you have an info, 333 142 0012. thanks, Tom

Some more info on the Indian Restaurant as I talked with the owners this evening.. - It is authentic Indian as the owners are from India. - They plan to deliver and to do catering as well. - They hope to open this coming Wednesday. - They have had experience in the restaurant business and if all goes well they hope to open a 'sit in' restaurant in the near future
