  1. Granted, but also at a premium price. Who is paying for the repair?
  2. Try entering upholsterer in the search space. There have been many threads over the years on this very subject.
  3. Be aware that there is a delay in receiving your passport. My wife sent in her renewal in January and it took 9 weeks. From reports in the U.S. it can take up to 3 months. Even if you pay the extra processing fee for expedited delivery it could still be 6 weeks.
  4. It took 9 weeks for my wife's to come in. If you are in a hurry look into paying the extra fee for expedited service.
  5. +1 My go to place for chicken. Never been disappointed. Don't know where they get their chicken from but they always seem to be larger than elsewhere.
  6. Got it from Amazon Mx. I got the Instant Vortex Plus 6. Cosori is also a good brand, also from Amazon.
  7. Recently bought a new air fryer and I must say that I've fallen in love. I've been using it almost every night and quite a few mornings. So far I've done fish, shrimp, chicken, and breakfast sandwiches. The recipes are simple, quick and economical as well as healthy. You use very little oil, I use avocado oil also. There are hundreds of recipes on YouTube, I've barely scratched the surface. The chicken that I've prepared has the crunchiest skin and the juiciest meat that I've ever had. I made coconut shrimp the other night and it cost me 39p for enough shrimp for my wife and I. I could go on and on but I think you can see how excited I've gotten. I've gone from fixing a meal maybe twice a month to almost every night. Any other converts out there?
  8. I'm assuming you did check upstairs at the store in Riberas? We also checked out Home Depot before we bought our fans and ended up getting them at Illumina y Decora. They had at least 2 or 3 different styles in white at the time. Also don't always go by what they have on display as light kits and remotes can be added.

  10. We've used the mattress store next to HSBC and across from Walmart. Good and reasonable are pretty subjective terms. They carry Sealy mattresses and several other brands. When they delivered our new mattress they took the old one away.
  11. So is it 10:00 to 6:00 or 11:00 to 6:00?
  12. My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Barragan since he had his small office in Chapala, wouldn't go to anyone else. As to Dra. Ruvalcaba I had 2 molars removed last month by her and couldn't believe how fast and painless it was, you'd be in good hands.
  13. Thanks for the replies. This is a legal well. I'll wait awhile for things to settle before we have the water tested.
  14. Our fracc. just opened a new well and the water that is coming out is murky. I'd like to know what we're getting. Where would be the best place to go to get it checked?
  15. My personal favorite is Herreria Tempisque. He's done a lot of work for me, but as stated before since he is good the wait might be longer. http://ajijicsteel.mex.tl/
  16. My wife just had an appointment there yesterday. She is a cancer survivor and had her operation there 5 years ago. As with all things IMSS patience is required. On more than one occasion we have had appointments scheduled and then upon showing up on that date we're told that the doctor isn't there. The hospital itself looks fairly new compared to others that I've been in. For some reason the elevator to the upper floors seems to be out of service more than it should for a hospital. Don't expect an IMSS hospital to compare with a hospital in the states or the more expensive ones in Guadalajara. Be prepared for more people and the resulting problems that incurs.
  17. My wife and I drove up to Az in August and then back down 2 weeks later going through Nogales. No problems at all unless you don't take into account a flat tire and almost hitting a horse. We stayed in Navojoa. As mentioned always try to stay on the cuotas.
  18. 7.5! I would call that a major quake.
  19. Took me back to my days living in California.
  20. Just now, the walls shaking and light fixtures swaying.
  21. Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately where I live it would be very hard to find someone who had eaten at Pancho's. That's the reason that I posted here, to find out if others might have been affected that day. I would hesitate to confront Pancho without additional facts. It was a difficult decision to make to post on here. I don't like to jump to conclusions without facts, but without asking how does one get those facts. In the end it came down to public safety. We love Pancho's, will continue to shop and eat there. I regret if this post has offended anyone.
  22. Yes. Just after you leave the mercado heading back to Chapala.
  23. I haven't seen anyone mention it here yet. We went to Mercado de Abastos today and on the way back home noticed that they are building a new Home Depot about 2 blocks east of the Mercado. Always nice to combine trips.
