  1. The only one who did not know or admit this was Dr. F who in fact helped fund the facility with US tax dollars. He now has the virus after I am sure was more than fully vaccinated and assuring the world that they would be fully protected with the two shots, a booster another booster and on and on!!! Hope you get well soon Dr. F.
  2. One of my first favorites here all those years ago when it was run by Lorri and her husband (who then went on to create Charlottes around the corner). My go to favorite has always been the Mahi Mahi fish and chips. Hard to get a way from this but recently have been experimenting with other specials on thier large chalkboard menu. Now I cannot resist ordering the Sopa Azteca (also known as tortilla soup). A large bowl of thick tasty broth with strips of fried tortilla, small white cheese squares, some pieces of avocado and who knows what else!!! This starter is almost a full meal, however a few days ago I ordered this and another special, a shrimp burrito. This consists of the nicely cooked shrimp, lettuce, melted cheese and a few chunks of avocado. Nice!!! This large burrito comes cut in 2 and I took one half home. All this plus 2 Modelo Negras for $250 (before tip)!!! Lake Taco is located just off the Libreimento behind the gas station and next to the car wash. Extremely pleasant outdoor setting under a palapa roof and service is very good and efficient.
  3. They are still searching for you since you escaped from the Nunnery...concerned about your mental health!!!
  4. PLEEEEEEZ...don't get your dander up about the fact that YOU failed to mention in your OP that you now live out there. Since you mentioned Marios in SAT, the assumption was on my part was that Serenata was nearby and I would like to learn more about is since I live in lower SAT. Is that any reason for trying to disparage me??? I am a big boy and just look at this as someone with a big ego and a lot of time on thier hands!!!
  5. I thought she was talking about the west side of SAT since she mentioned an alternative to Mario's. The fiesta is only affecting the central part of SAT around the Plaza. There are plenty of great restaurants here outside that zone, why go all the way out there past Ajijic? Because of traffic I stay away from that area as much as possible!!!
  6. If you google TURMERIC FOR PAIN you will see a lot of positive reviews, and also better with the black pepper for faster absorption. I think the the black pepper is in tablet form also...my question is where do I get that? I am not talking about turmeric and black pepper as a spice, because the result would be inconsequential for my purpose.
  7. Rainy season not good for my hip that 6 years ago suffered a botched hip replacement surgery here (redone at the VA hospital in Phoenix). Pain radiating down to the calf area and back of knee. Have started to take 2 capsules of turmeric (100 mg. ea.) a day and so far not much relief. Read that if taken with black pepper (piperine) 20 mg. together this helps speed up the process. One question is where do I get this here, and also any comments on this treatment one way or another from those who have experience with this? I try to stay away from prescription pain meds, and would be happy to have other comments on alternative, natural treatments. Gracias
  8. Why don't YOU block ME??? I kind of get a kick out of the dichotomy of your posts...and no, not perverted (yeah...I am really into Nuns!); just the silliness!!! Your scolding of others for any slight deviation from your hardline views is kind of amusing....
  9. Are these good for reading? During the many outages here in Lower SAT I use the time on catching up on my reading...
  10. What does this have to do with Mario's? The post is: Serenata ... uphill side carretera nearísh Casa de Plomero I have been here in lower SAT for 14 years and love Mario's but know nothing about Serenata or Casa de Plomero...please give us more details. Gracias
  11. PLEEEEEESE...we have to all listen to and obey the Nun!!!
  12. Check all of your numerous posts with name-calling far worse that anything I post. As far as communist/socialist, just the fact that you think there ANYTHING good in either shows where you are at!!! Venezuela has great weather...maybe you should check it out!!!
  13. She has escaped the Nunnery again!!! And is SHE not repeating, duplicating, copying and reproducing her same BS here constantly??? PLUS ceaselessly cajoling anyone here who does not agree to every iota of her totally socialist (communist) off the wall leftist agenda!!!
  14. So the Nun is sad again (see my post above) regarding me pointing out her true colors...communist (or socialist...same thing) RED!!! Well thankfully it is STILL a free country here and she can express her opinion...watch for another sad face here, or maybe a confused one.......
  15. So, "strong advocacy for free-market capitalism and limited government (Libertarian)" is a bad thing??? Well the opposition to this now NOB of those in charge are surely putting the lie to this, and the people there will shortly have the chance to at least stall it!!!
  16. NO...it's quite simple: what happens NOB does not STAY NOB!!!
  17. Mexican Style!!! "WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' HELMETS!!!"
  18. My 1982 Ford F150 pickup keeps on truckin'. I asked Armando, my mechanic how much longer will the 40 year old relic will keep rollin'. He thought for a minute and said "40 more years". I then asked him how many more years do I have, he looked at me for a minute and said "40 more years". I will take that!!!
  19. Besides this scam here (and now at other bank ATM's) You have to keep your eye on your card. These machines suck your card all the way in and after the transaction you have to punch a button to get it out. In most other ATM's the card is protruding and you cannot get your money until you extract the card. If you are not careful, or distracted, you can easily walk away (such as I did years ago) and face the hassle of cancelling the card and getting a new one. Beware!
  20. Meanwhile they rake in mucho pesos from those such as myself who were fooled am taken advantage of by this SCAM!!!
  21. Can you say Nepotism, Cronyism, Patronage and just plain GRAFT??? Oh yeah...and who is all this Green New Deal Cartel nonsense hurting most?...The poor hardworking Mexican working to climb the ladder out of poverty!!!
  22. One note??? Historic Inflation, doubling of gas prices, record number of illegal immigrants flooding border, record drug flow across the border, historic crime wave, record murder rates, corking Keystone pipeline, green lighting Russian pipeline, supply chain boondoggle, infant formula fiasco, catastrophic Afghanistan pullout…and all in the last 18 months!!! Beethoven could create an entire symphony with all these notes, and I am sure that I have left some out!!! And yes, this is, and will continue affecting us here well into the future…and it is just starting!!!
  23. And the dog ate my homework!!! Everything was fine 18 months ago...get over it and live in the real world TODAY!!! I understand, you are one of the 20% who when answering a current poll would check the box "doing a good job". The topic is MX peso tanking!!!
  24. What has this got to do about TODAY and our situation here regarding MONEY???
