  1. I also collected the GB for when Telmex went out. I then used that cell phone ( with plan amigo ) as a hotspot and could continue teaching online classes with those GB s on my laptop. I have had plan amigo for many years and have been very happy with it.
  2. Yes. It rolls over if extended on or before the last day. At one time, I had collected 20 GB in total ( added up... ) Rony
  3. I had the same thing. It lasted a few days and when I finally picked up the phone, I didnt speak and held the phone in front of a German talk radio. It was their last call. I know that it was a cruel thing to do, but hey.....à la guerre comme à la guerre
  4. A while ago, I read something here about the HSBC branch in San Antonio being closed. Was this a temporary thing and are they back open ? My Chapala landlords ( who live in the US ) would like me to pay the rent there. Thanks😊 Rony
  5. So very very sorry, B., What a nightmare. But can you be sure that a private ambulance doesnt call the police either, .....because they might have to. Hugs Rony
  6. Hi B., Not private, but maybe the Chapala municipal clinic can help you. It is my first place to go for doctor or any kind of medical emergency....open 24 hours. Hug Rony
  7. Somebody who can also give you great advice on where and how to get oxygen, is Veronica Torres, the owner of the pharmacy, on the main drag in Chapala : corner Madero and Flavio Romero. In the past, she helped a lot of people getting oxygen. Rony
  8. So sad to read this. I met Louise and Bob, for the first time in 2005, when I started my restaurant in Chapala. I needed somebody to test and taste different kinds of coffee. He did a great job and thanks to him, I found excellent coffee. More importantly, I learnt a lot from this very well travelled and smart man. My heart and thoughts are with Louise. Rony
  9. Another vote for the Mexicans. I worked as a European flight attendant for 14 years ( so,.....I discovered some common traits about my fellow Europeans....not always, but often correct )......and in general, Mexicans ( where I have lived for + 20 years...in Mexico ) are a lot nicer, warmer AND happier than the Spaniards. The Spaniards also tell me that "my Spanish" is not real Spanish. It is "Mexican". They almost consider it as a dialect !( That alone says enough )
  10. I am reading in several Facebook posts today that Banamex in Chapala is closed....until further notice.....
  11. Hi....for the time being, working here in Europe. But ....I will always return to Mexico. Happy 2022 ! Rony
  12. So kind ! Thank you ! Only temporarily here in Europe. My heart,...as always ...in Mexico. Feliz 2022 to you....and all other members here ! Rony
  13. Another vote for https://www.handsoftheartisan.com/en/ Made by Canadians. It helped my 15 year old doggie in the last years of her life. They make CBD for people and pets.
  14. I also remember how she helped my elderly Dutch/Belgian friends in Chapala Haciendas. A big heart for people and animals. Very sorry that I will never see her again.
  15. Good to know. Elena might still be doing some testing ( tempering chocolate is a tricky thing and takes time to learn ). Adriana ( from El Granero ) might know more
  16. Hi, Sorry for the late reply. I havent been on this webboard for quite a while. First of all, thank you for having bought my chocolate, for all these years ( to you, and everybody else ) ! Yes, I moved back to Belgium, almost 2 months ago, but in meanwhile, there is a lady, called Elena, doing the chocolate. By now, she should have them back at El Granero ( same style of chocolate ) in Ajijic. A big hug to you all. Rony
  17. I am happy to announce that today, my friend José opened his restaurant "José s place " here in the plaza again. His wife Isabel, still has some difficulties walking and will not be there yet. Several months with no income ( while being ill ), but you can support them by having one of their wonderful meals again ( because of Covid : limited number of tables ).
  18. in the PDF of the website is also a phone number : Teléfono: (33) 38376000
  19. I would say : party concerned, claimant
  20. from website state of Jalisco : Quién puede realizarlo? Representante legal Interesado Padres Cualquier persona, en caso de ser menor de edad debe hacerse acompañar por un adulto. https://tramites.jalisco.gob.mx/tramite/26788
  21. according to CUCEI (Centro Universitario de Ciencias Exactas e Ingenierías), the rainy season officially started on June 18th ( from today's El Informador ) Rony
  22. A difficult message to post. Be nice ( to some of you : take your nasty attitudes somewhere else or I simply delete the post ). My friends Jose and Isabel ( the owners of the famous restaurant here in the Chapala plaza ) are ill. Isabel is on a respirator ( last bed in hospital civil in Guad ) and medication is scarce. Jose is recuperating at his son s house in Guad. I dont feel comfortable to discuss their medical condition or cause of illness here. So, plse, respect that. If you would like to help them, you can send them money through OXO to their daughters ( Deniss ) SALDAZO card ( very easy ). ( or Paypal their son in law ) Email me (elbelgicano@yahoo.com ) for a picture of her card. I am sure that they can use help soon. Also, they had to close for the longest time ( no income ). Through their church, Jose and Isabel, have helped a lot of people too. I would like to see some good Karma working here. Thanks for considering this. Rony
  23. a very nice way of showing your respect to somebody who does his best to speak and write your mother language, Peter. More and more, showing true colours....sorry "colors" . by the way, how many languages do you write and speak ? Perfect Spanish too ? ai...touché
