  1. Hi, I bought a new six burner stove... “empotrable” or recessed. The stove is slightly wider than the old one and a tad higher. Sooooo, who do I get to install said stove? Assuming I need an electrician and an albañil... but know zip about such things. Advice? Recommendations? TIA.
  2. Wow, negative negative ... I was so pleased a place could see me and take an X-ray and care for my aches and pains... Ajijic Clinic Hospital didn’t have a tech on call, they claim 24 hr hospital status.... and their X-ray is old and achy anyway or it was..... the cost was a bit higher than Ajijic Clinic on past visits. I for one am thrilled we are getting better medical infrastructure.
  3. Well funny.... guess what? Saturday morning... day before Easter.... I was the first patient (I think) of the new hospital owned by Dr. Carlos Garcia, of Maskaras. I fell in the night, not gently. They took an X-ray, put me to bed for a long nap, gave me (non narcotic) pain pills as I am allergic. Etc. Very attentive young doctor (she speaks English if you need it). Lovely staff already working and clearly staffing up. They are clearly putting all the finishing touches in, and I believe the MRI is installed. The hospital isn’t huge, and the west wing is for “locales” or shops. I w

Es alta (1.85m) y delgada con cabello gris hasta el hombro. Si alguien la ve co
  5. Seriously? Royally reamed? When writing negatives about Lisa Jorgensen? Hard to fathom. I am Sur e only newbies subscribe to her rag, mostly plagiarized of course, and then drop her as this OP is doing. She’s a crook. Period.
  6. I buy biodegradable plastic poop bags ... suppose you could use them for food waste as well.
  7. So you are saying that an agreement with Guadalajara covers the entire metro area? Each, its own municipality... so did each of the five zones sign an agreement with Uber .... I am well aware that Chapala is its own municipality and does not belong to the metropolitan area, but gee, thanks so much for the heads up.
  8. Al, interested in the source of your info re the alleged negotiated agreement. I’ve been reading articles, recent and past, and as well as Semov ....for an hour and find zip about Uber’s (real Uber’s with app etc) agreement not to work lakeside etc. Also if there is such an agreement, why wouldn’t it cover the five metro areas ( Guad, Zapopan. Tlaquepaque, tonala and Tlajomulco de. Zuniga)?
  9. Computer Guy, that is not exactly what was said. We have a ways to go to determine what may or may not be planned, what may or may not have been agreed to (by Javier? By ?) and must definitely wait to see what both Oscar España says, as well as the colonos etc. At the moment, although Dionicio Morales has also given us some very good background, we have no transparency. This government, as often in the past, has not told the public the truth of so many things. Just as an aside, Chapala, Jocotepec, and Ixtlahuacan are still the three least transparent municipalities in Jalisco.

    We ate there tonight, four of us. I don’t mind paying these prices if the food is exceptional along with service. The place is large... with both inside and patio seating, but there was no one eating inside and the patio was packed. The waitstaff are all nice, but need to be a bit more attentive. Those kinks will of course work themselves out. Meanwhile, the steaks were good, but came very rare and we had to send them back, the hamburger was so so. The small size Garufa salad (which looked bigger) was 100p for iceberg lettuce, tasteless tomatoes, sautéed onions and a mostly tasteles
  11. Many thanks to all of you, particularly Carmic and Lakeside. My friend called the woman who manages JJ’s things here... no answer and will keep trying. If anyone has the name of the nursing home, that would be great. I will also call around to see if I can locate her. Again, thank you.
  12. Hi all, a friend of mine is an investment/money advisor in Florida. The bank that Ms. Vollmer had some of her accounts in, has not heard from her for a very very long time. She lived here in Ajijic, and would be about 92 years old. They called her old local number but were told she no longer lived there. Someone mentioned that they thought she had gone into a nursing home, but that’s not confirmed. There is an address in Atlantic Beach, Florida, but no telephone number associated. So, if anyone knows what has happened to Jacqueline Vollmer I’d be grateful if you could let me know.
  13. Yes, as lloyd520 said alprazolam is generic Xanax. Googling that in both Spanish and English : Brands: Xanax, Alprazolam Intensol, and Xanax XR Availability: Prescription needed Pregnancy: Consult a doctor Alcohol: Avoid. Very serious interactions can occur Drug class: Benzodiazepine And Joco69 it is very difficult to find pharmacies today that will sell controlled substances over the counter. Just try to buy them at Farmacia Guadalajara or Cristina, or other reputable pharmacies without an RX and tell us what happened. There are of course those pharmacies that will
  14. Ken, where do you buy Alprazolam without a prescription? It is generic Xanax, which is a controlled drug, legally sold only through a prescription ... interested to know where?
  15. No, they are two separate businesses. It looks like Traitte delivers mostly fast food, while Lakeside Food Delivery has a number of full service restaurants... including Gossips, El Merendero, CocinArt, Emma’s Deli, Forest Grill, Bruno’s etc. They are fast and efficient. Look up Lakeside Food Delivery on Facebook for their contact information.
  16. This was a post on Inside Lakeside re Lisa J “Just received an email from Lisa Jorgenson. She is giving us a last chance for an annual subscription for the Chapala Reporter for $45 per Year. It is going up to $60. The Guadalajara Reporter charges $30 US per year and each week they usually have 28 or 32 pages. How many pages does the Chapala Reporter have per week? I understand perhaps one or two, but not weekly but occasionally. Please correct me if I am wrong. I would love to see what she writes. But I am not going to pay $45 or $60 to find out. I would be happy to pay for one issu
  17. Paty Muñoz at PATRISS. Pink awning on the west side of Encarnacion Rosas, two doors down from the tienda on the corner of Guadalupe Victoria and Encarnacion Rosas. Stylist/Colorist. ‭(331) 756-7345‬ She has done my cut and color for years. And I’m a bit adventurous. But if you say “cut the ends, and no more than 1/4 inch” she will do exactly what you asked for, 1/4”. Or if you ask for a specific color you will get the specific color. Paty is talented, creative, attentive ... and there isn’t a lot of noise since she is a one person salon. I had tried Paty on Galeana, S
  18. Won’t be home til next Wednesday... but I offered 14 pounds for sale a few weeks ago. Still have them if you can wait til I get back. I think that’s about 350p give or take.
  19. I am visiting my sister in Ajijic. Haven’t been here for a few years. This afternoon we saw five trucks of Federales going west on the highway through the village. All in black with balaclavas. Wow. And then a State police truck went past, one street below.
