  1. Electricity off on Santa Margarita yesterday and today. I commented to my gardener that this was the 6th time without electricity but he said "No, señora mucho más.". He's probably right as I was gone for a week. No electricity = no internet, no telephone on cordless phones, no water. I have only received notification from CFE once via a note stuck in my gate. I hope they finish my sector soon! !!

    Chef Pian's New Thai Restaurant in Ajijic

    I think the peanut sauce at Chopsticks is too thin, not peanutty enough, and not very flavorful because it does not have enough heat.

    Chef Pian's New Thai Restaurant in Ajijic

    I believe tamarind juice is one of the basic ingredients in pad thai seasoning that gives the dish its flavor.

    Chef Pian's New Thai Restaurant in Ajijic

    I was very disappointed in the fresh rolls I had recently at Tepetate, mostly filled with rusty cabbage. Their peanut sauce is good, much better than Chopsticks.

    Septic tank cleaners

    Excellent question! I'd like to know the answer, especially where a reputable contractor would dump the contents. I need to have my septic tank pumped but with an empty lot next to my house I might have good reason to be concerned.

    Xmas decorations

    Panino's Thsanksgiving meal is a little different than their Wednesday turkey meal as it includes stuffing and green beans.
  10. Needlepushers continues knitting and sewing for the children of the Lake Chapala area. In November we will start distributing hand knit sweaters to children in several local kindergartens. Last year Needlepushers gave sweaters to about 215 children. This past spring our group gave 250 dresses and 240 handmade vests to children in Jocotepec and San Juan Cosala. Our goal is to clothe as many, or even more, children before Semana Santa in 2019. We just completed a new project of giving over 300 handmade bags to children in Santa Cruz de la Soledad, San Nicolas de Ibarra, San Juan Tecomotlan, Riberas del Pilar, San Antonio Tlayacapan, and Hope House orphanage for boys in Ixtlahuacan. The bags were filled with a variety of surprises for the children, including personal hygiene and grooming products, school supplies, socks or underwear, stickers, toys and candy. Here is a photo of one very happy boy at Hope House showing off his bag and a knit cap he received. Needlepushers, which was started by Neill James in 1962, operates entirely on donations and members' dues. If you have yarn, fabric, sewing supplies and notions or travel toiletries you would like to donate, they can be left at the Lake Chapala Society office for Needlepushers or call 376-765-7318 for pick up. We can always use school supplies for the bags too. And we never turn down cash donations! Thank you for remembering Needlepushers and helping us with our work through your contributions. If you are interested in joining, please come to a meeting at LCS Tuesdays at 10:00.

    Question from a Newbie Visitor

    Eating food in restaurants, especially the ones popular with expats, are safe. Eating street food is an individual drcision. Don't drink tap water unless you know there is a filter system installed. Drink bottled water. Water served to you in restaurants come from bottled water, which is also used for drinks like agua fresca and limonadas. Ice served in restaurants is made from purified water so safe. Ice cream is safe as are paletas (popsicles.)

    Taco Bell voted best restaurant in the country

    Don't knock Taco Bell. It is what it is. It may not be authentic Mexican but it doesn't claim or try to be. It serves decent fast food at reasonable prices. I always hit Taco Bell when in the States for tastes I can't get here. And, yes, I saw a lot of Mexicans in the Taco Bells in California.
