  1. The reason that I'm asking about the June date is because the woman whose garden is on the tour in La Cristina told me it was on June 3rd. I hope she has the date correct.
  2. I was told two different things. One person told me they were visiting a garden out in La Cristina on June 3. Another person told me they usually meet on the third Wednesday of each month. Can someone confirm the exact date in June, please?
  3. My mandolin slicer. I bought one at the everything store in Ajijic, and I use it almost every day!
  4. The fires started on the north side of the mountain range above the eastern end of Ajijic. Then it spread to the south-facing side of those mountains. It's been mostly contained to the area between Chula Vista Norte and Ajijic Centro. I haven't heard any choppers for the last 18 hours or so, so I'm hoping they have it mostly out now.
  5. Tio Corp in Mirasol prepares Canadian tax returns.
  6. Someone mentioned on a Facebook group that there was also a fire in an empty lot in Cielo Vista today!
  7. "Expecting folks to just sit at home and wait days/weeks for their installers to show.... even in Mexico.... is a stretch and surely not the sign of an organized 'office'. " RickS, every telecom company I've ever dealt with, here and in Canada, operates the same way. They tell you they will be there between 8 am and 5 pm on a particular day, and if you're very lucky, they might show up that day at 5:30 pm. Sometimes they don't show up at all. And as far as repairs or tech service, I've heard many horror stories about Telmex. Every new company is bound to have some problems here and there. For the most part, I've heard that Ilox subscribers are generally happy with their service and speed.
  8. When I originally signed up for the service, the woman in the office circled the channels that were supposed to be in English on the sheet that shows all of the channels available.
  9. I've been hooked up for about a month on the TV/internet package. Unfortunately, they promised eight English channels and I'm not getting any. Set up two different appointments for the tech guy to come out, but both times he was a no show. I'd like to know if others that have been hooked up are receiving any English channels. TIA
  10. My iPad works with my Ilox hookup. Like RV said, you have to go to your settings on the iPad or phone, click on WiFi, then click on your Ilox network and enter your password.
  11. There's a shop inside Casa Colon, the concept store that also houses Dharma, the restaurant. They sell copper plates, bowls, sinks, etc. It's on the northeast corner of Colon and Zaragoza in Ajijic. Closed on Tuesdays.
  12. That's a wonderful good news story! You said you didn't want to mention the man's name in case he would get in trouble with his company, but then you mentioned the company name. If they were to read this, they would know exactly who you're talking about anyway. They know who was on duty to service those machines on this particular day.
  13. Our Easter lily plant (growing outdoors in the ground) has been blooming for a few weeks now.
  14. Thank you for posting the La Vie en Rose menu, Angus. But the Oui Oui menu is not shown, and it is the dinner menu, which is totally different from this. Do you have a screen shot of that menu?
  15. Mine was down for about 10 minutes. It's back up now, but the LOS light isn't on
  16. And maybe the kids like it covered in what some of you call 'graffiti'. To them, it may be a beautiful piece of art. If it keeps the kids off the street corners causing trouble and possibly doing drugs, then I say, let them paint it any way they like. It doesn't bother me at all!
  17. When you click on their website, it comes up with the old name, but the new logo. Here's the menu page link. At the top of the page are all the link buttons. The one I gave you lists the breakfast/brunch menu. For the dinner menu, click on 'Oui, oui'. https://www.leclub4.com/menus
  18. bontepar, since you don't want to help this family, why do you continue to post comments? People that actually want to help don't need your input.
  19. I agree with you, oregontochapala. The only reason I put that title on the post was to give a heads up to all the snowbirds that are leaving this month.
  20. https://www.washingtonpost.com/immigration/wait-times-at-us-mexico-border-soar-as-officers-are-reassigned-to-deal-with-migrants/2019/04/10/2d1d30f4-5bae-11e9-842d-7d3ed7eb3957_story.html
  21. Maybe you should be patient and wait for an answer to your question? You weren't the OP, so most people are answering that question first.
  22. I have friends who travel, sometimes for a few months at a time. They have hired a property manager to check on their place occasionally in case any problems arise, like a leak in the pipes or other damage. Also, their maid has a key.
  23. I've had Ilox hooked up for about a week now. I've run several speed tests each day using Fast.com, Speedtest.net and Speedof.me. It's pretty consistent. I'm getting 38.5 Mbps download, and 8.75 Mbps upload. Much better than my old Telmex connection! I'm very happy with Ilox so far.
  24. The government does the same thing in Canada. They create 'make-work' projects in order for people to get enough weeks of work to qualify for employment insurance for the winter months!
  25. We were hooked up to Ilox yesterday. Signed up for the TV/internet package, no phone. Very pleased with the internet speed. Went from getting about 10 Mbps with Telmex to 38 Mbps with Ilox! The problem we're having is they told us there were 8 English channels in the package. Have gone through every channel on the TV, and the only English channels are Fox News and one other Fox channel. Very disappointed! Has anyone else that's been hooked up so far had this problem?
