    Any idea who’s carrying this event on the big screen?

    Expensive given the mundane food and limited overpriced wine selection. Probably went too soon so will try them when they get it together. Right now slow service while wait staff offer very poor service. Of course just my opinion.

    Recommendation for basic auto insurance.

    I thought it a very useful statement. Polite without hostility. Absolutely no need to hear the story. I too had a bad experience and wouldn’t use them but to each his own
  5. If we wanted to “adopt”, we know all about it. We prefer to support breeders who care and take the time to place well so the pups do not end up in shelters. And, we prefer to buy a purposely bred dog with some consistency so they do not fail in their tasks and our expectations and end up in shelters. Not all dogs are interchangeable and we prefer dogs with very specific traits and talents. We prefer to buy from responsible ethical breeders. We prefer not to pretend we are adopting when actually we are paying fees and buying. If you prefer to pretend you are adopting and prefer to support those who do not care enough to breed well, feel free. But please stop trying to guilt me into cleaning up after people whi did not bother to deal with their mistakes. Ellen Schwab

    Coming for a Visit.

    For living in Mexico only part time I would visit Cuyutlan, a 2 1/2 hour drive and Manzanillo, 3+, as winter housing options. Nice to compare your options before the plunge.

    Beach vs Ajijic

    Well I think I goofed but maybe not too late. Moved here for the months of December thru May. NOB for the pther 6 months I failed to consider the beach initially and I don’t know why. Have been renting in Cuyutlan ‘cause its a 3 hour drive at most and the closest to Ajijic and too cold here for me. In the couple of years we’ve been doing this the beach has far exceeded our expectations. So if I had known or thought about starting out buying a beach house at the outset I know I’d have bought on the beach . If we were to consider living here full time then Ajijic would have been first choice.

    Sirens on the Caratera

    Thus is a common occurence. Just police responding as quickly as possible to an unknown trouble call.
  9. I would ask for maceta grande not for a chimney - chimenea. Never heard the latter used for a pot

    I’m with RickS on the pronuciation understanding from years ago. Would be interesting to ask one of the Huicholes as, like many places, it is a Nahua word.

    Auto Body Shop question

    Good question and eager to learn of your friends opinion. I know German left quite some time ago and have heard prices are escalating beyond reason. Can’t see why the name change unless new owner.
  12. Thanks, your instructions worked so easily I felt kinda dumb I couldn’t figure it out. Of course still haven’t heard from Apeesh
  13. Apesh - please post or pm your name and email. I would pm you but cant figure out how on this site. I need a cook early next month as my usual is out of town.

    Restaurant First Experience

    If one didn’t name a restaurant how could it be talked about? By guess and by golly?
