  1. Natasha I think you misunderstoon what I was trying to say.  Remember I commented after Virgo Lady.  I don't have any problem at all with the different sections.  It makes sense to me as long as everyone is allowed to exercise their voice.  There are certain members of this forum that are all in favor of censorship if it differs with what Fauci says and I am against censoring people.  Let everyone speak freely is all I meant.

  2. I can understand him not answering the phone if he is up under a sink somewhere.  But I cannot understand why he doesn't answer his whatsapp messages.  Heck, he could do that at night after he's got home and relaxed awhile.  Its important that he answers the messages from his customer base.  I have already sent him two messages two weeks apart and they are still unread and unanswered.

  3. Just out of curiosity, I am far from being a potato connoisseur but the pototoes called dirty potatoes are they much different than the regular washed white potatoes?  The ladies in the fruterías all insist that they are better for frying.  Since they are slightly more expensive, are they worth the extra price or are they basically the same as the washed potatoes?  What is you guy's opinions.

  4. Yeah I have heard about the yellow black widow before.  In Chapala they have what they call the Capulina spider and the Viuda Negra.  The way I understand the difference between the two is that the Capulina is larger.  In Chapala they don't always have the perfect drawn hour glass.  Often times it is just a red dot or no red dot at all.  You have to go by their shape usually.  They are pretty common around these parts in the summer.  The good news is that generally they are not very agressive and avoid biting humans unless overly threatened.  

    What other venemous spiders do we have in the Chapala area and do we also have Brown Recluse?

    In order to not confuse non-Spanish speakers who might try to translate "basulero", a garbage collector or trash man as we used to call them is a basurero. 

    We put $400 in their envelope and we regularly run smaller propinas out throughout the year, along with coco sueros, the favorite among all of our workers.

    Sorry I must of just skipped your correction.  😄

  6. I have seen couliflower rice at Superlake and once at Walmart.  México is the land of meat.  Just don't eat the tortillas.  They do sell the low carb green cactus tostadas at Gourmet Garage.  When we were doing keto we bought a lot of those and ate a lot of cheap avocados.  Meat, eggs, bacon is cheap and plentiful around here.  We even ordered monk fruit off Amazon.  Not cheap but worth it.  We also ate lots if greens like kale, swiss chard and spinach.  Which are all very easy to grow in your back yard.
