  1. After a lovely pet sit in Ajijic village, I need to get back home to La Manzanilla (or Melaque or Barra de Navidad) next Tuesday, August 8. Could you please let me know ASAP if you're driving from either Lakeside or Guadalajara with room for one suitcase and a skinny person who would gladly share expenses? Alternately, if you're going from Lakeside to the main/"new" bus station in Guadalajara/Tlaqapaque for a noonish departure on 8/8, please let me know if you would like to share a ride. You can PM me, write to lunalenamx@gmail.com or call my local number: (376) 766 3018. Thanks.
  2. If it weren't for those "outmoded rules" I wouldn't be earning a good living "enforcing" them, so I'm rather thankful that they still exist. But no one has yet answered the apostrophe question...
  3. Neither you nor I would ever hear someone form a plural with an apostrophe, because the mistake is a written error rather than a verbal one. On the Costalegre, where I live and where most visitors are from Canada or the American West Coast, I see the mistake daily on the online English-language message boards, but I've never asked the question because I don't want to appear to be a snob. (I'm an editor of translations from six languages to English, with four college degrees.) So I'm asking it here, where fewer people know me. ;-)
  4. To be slightly more accurate, Canadians (as well as some Americans from the West coast) tend to use an apostrophe to form the plural of a noun. For example: I have four cat's. Huh? Could anyone explain why they do this (in their own language)?
  5. The SSA is notified if you die, so the annual form is not a "proof of life" document. It asks a few questions regarding any changes in your circumstances and, should you not receive and return it within the alloted time, just call the US Consulate in Guadalajara to have your benefits reinstated within 15 business days.
  6. There is a strict law now in Jalisco against deliberately mistreating or killing domesticated animals. (You can search the Guadalajara Reporter's past issues on the topic.) In my little fishing village on the coast, we are hoping to get an ex-pat poisoner deported; all levels of local and municipal government are now involved.
  7. I've been pet sitting in Riberas del Pilar for the past five weeks and need to get back to La Manzanilla, Melaque or Barra de Navidad next Friday. If you're going that way and can take one passenger with a bit of luggage, I would gladly share the expenses. Please PM me or email lunalenamx@gmail.com, preferably with a phone number, if you can help. Thanks.
  8. Thanks so much, Figoush! (So why did I think that her name starts with an N?)
  9. Yes, I'm pretty sure that Yo1 is correct. If I had an activator, I could adjust my neck myself, because that is all I need. Now I'm hoping that someone knows her name and number. Thanks, everybody, for your input.
  10. Sometime between the first week of June and the first week of July, I read a post on this board recommending a local chiropractor who makes house calls. I've done a search with every key word I can think of, but I still cannot find that post. I seem to remember that the chiropractor was female and that her name started with the letter N. Can anyone help? Thanks.
  11. Thanks for asking this question, as I also hope to find dancing venues while at Lakeside in the next few months, since they dry up on the Costalegre (where I actually live) during the long off-season. And thanks for the newsletter tip! (Can't get rid of boldface type.)
  12. Whew! What a relief! Thanks, everyone. :-)
  13. I would like to mail an important document to Uncle Sam while I'm pet sitting at Lakeside later this month, because there is no US mail service (much less Mexican mail service) in my little fishing village on the coast. I think that there is a US mail service at Lakeside, but would I be permitted to buy a US stamp and mail one envelope to the United States if I don't have an account there? If not, does anyone have any other ideas, short of going to the US Consulate in Guadalajara and asking them to do it for me? Thanks!
  14. You all have been extraordinarily helpful. Since I'll be traveling back and forth from the coast to Lakeside several times over the next few months, I think it makes sense to bring everything I'll need the first time and then leave it with a friend when I go home for awhile. So on the first trip, with luggage, I'll choose the Chapala Plus option (yes, I've got an INAPAM card) from the old bus station, after which I can be more adventurous. Thanks again!
