  1. This is the number I use to contact total play. I send them messages on whatsapp. At first its a bot that talks to you and if the bot can't help they pass you over to a real person. I usually talk to them in Spanish but if you put inglés por favor I am sure eventually they will understand once a real person comes on. 5515798000
  2. Angus? What do we know about him? I just remember him traveling to the beach, then he posted on the forum that he needed help to get an oxygen tank if I remember correctly, after that he was never heard from again.
  3. The main difference is that petrea volubilis is not fragrant at all. I saw wisteria seeds for sell on mercado libre and even the plants too. You could try wisteria here and then report back to us how well it is growing.
  4. Yes, one is called Vitango and should be available at most pharmacies.
  5. Several years ago their was a taller on Calle Zaragoza here in Chapala that was licensed to do emissions testing. We used them for a couple of years but alas they are no longer there.
  6. Bmh are these also the same guys that work on the Chapala malecón?
  7. We just had a parents and teacher meeting this to plan for their Christmas posada and to hand put their grades. Their teacher is very worried that in his 4th grade class, almost all the kids are still on a 2nd grade level. Several still can not read and write. They are all 2 years behind. So those 2 weeks of staying home will be 2 more weeks with kids not being in the class room. And yes it is a huge problem for their future education and their future in general. But I guess that is of lesser importance. And think of the parents that won't be able to work cause they now have to stay home with their kids.
  8. I have littke kids in school in Chapala. The secretary of Education for Jalisco decided to do 2 weeks of virtual classes and then they should head back to the classrooms. It is because of the amount of traveling that many families do at Christmas and because of the new "weaker" Omicron variant. Still Honeybee I agree it is useless and rediculous. Why aren't most news articles focusing on the milder and lighter symptoms people are experiencing with this new mutation? Because their agenda has always been to sow as much fear as possible and to sell as many vaccines as possible for Big Pharma.
  9. I don't even know how that even happens. But still at times it is nice to resurrect old threads. Just cause they are old does not mean they should be shut down.
  10. Super Lake still has pie shells as of a few minutes ago. We looked and their was a stack of them hidden in the back of the freezer. If anybody needs one don't wait.
  11. It is back up in Chapala as just a minute ago.
  12. Covid is going to evolve, spread and mutate regardless, don't you understand? I seriously doubt that the majority of the world's population wants to take a covid vaccine every 6 months for the rest of their lives. Because thats about all its good for. But I'm sure Big Pharma would love that. Most scientists already say it is here for good just like the common flu is so we might as well learn to live with it as we do with the flu. It isn't going away.
  13. https://us.yahoo.com/news/cdc-moves-germany-denmark-not-175907246.html If you read this article it is rather disturbing specially when you get to the end where it states that 78.1% of people in Denmark have been vaccinated and 70% of Germans have been vaccinated. It kind of makes one question the effectiveness of these vaccines.
  14. Oh thanks Bisbee Gal, I had forgotten about Santa Cecilia.
  15. Don't worry they have been celebrating San Andrés here in downtown Chapala for the past two days. Large cohetes are going off as I type. I don't get it, why can't us Chapalenses just honor our San Francisco or St Francis and forget about the other town's patron saints. Maybe they are making up for lost time during these past two pandemic years.
  16. I am permanente and have been so for 10 years. But I have a friend who is living here with an expired tourist visa. It expired during the pandemic because this person did not want to travel back to the border at that time. Now this person wants to fly to the beach with friends. It will be a domestic flight. But I warned this person about the need to show a passport ID to board the plane. What are the risks of getting deported? My guess is that they are high. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
  17. I always thought Mudgirl was American who happened to have lived in Canada for a number of years.
  18. I am in the same exact situation. I've tried emailing them. No response. I've tried their whatsapp number, no response. I can't find a phone number for mercado libre Mexico that even works. They say to go to sign in and go to their help chat but if I can't sign in I can't access their help chat. When I google it I see that all the other countries where mercado libre operates have customer service numbers but not Mexico. They used to several years ago.
  19. That was a terrifying nightmare. I also agree canned mushrooms are horrible. Anything fresh is so much better. But if you are a prepper and preparing for the Apocalypse how long wound those little cans get you? You would have to have literally thousands of cans to survive a year.
  20. Growing up I used to think all spinach came in a can and I dispised it. After growing up and discovering fresh spinach, now I love spinach and it is so easy to get a bag of fresh pre washed popeyes spinach and chop it up yourselves. Super fast to chop up and super fast to cook and super delicious without the tin flavor.
  21. Frozen spinach is very available at Soriana and Walmart.
  22. That is really good to hear. I guess I"ll hike over there later on.
  23. I just came down to see how the altars were coming along by the church here in Chapala. By 4 pm they mostly would have them built by now. But not this year I guess. There are no altars this year. But there could be some on 5 de Mayo where they used to be displayed years ago. I haven't checked there yet. Seriously all these pandemic safety protocols are getting laughably ridiculous. Political rallies are fine but religious and cultural celebrations are banned. Hmmmm.
