  1. I do hope you find your precious fur baby safely and quickly. I'll keep an eye out as well. Val
  2. Helping a friend find a dog walker for 3 dogs in Riberas Del Pilar. Failing health of my elderly friend has made it difficult and now impossible for him to walk and feed the dogs twice/day. I'm unaware of the going rate for this type of service but would like to hear from someone who would be interested in this type of work. Please contact me via PM for details and to share the fees involved. As always, thanks in advance. Val Jones
  3. Well, as a regular performer at this venue, I can certainly speak for myself and others....we WISH the funds had been focused on sound, lighting, air ventilation/air conditioning, acoustics, etc. While the brick work may be lovely, it does absolutely nothing for the quality of the performances. We can only hope for a more professional experience for performers and audiences along with the incredible brick work noted on the exterior of the structure. Val Jones
  4. Great, thanks! Paying ridiculous price to do this on Wednesday but it's gotta be done. Have an appointment with CVS. Long day but worth it, in my opinion. Stay safe and healthy, y'all. Val Jones
  5. Hoping to do a single day trip to Tijuana, cross the bridge, Uber to CVS or Walgreen's and return. Has anyone does this recently and willing to share travel information and details? I've gotten the address of 4 CVS's located in Chula Vista, CA that all have Moderna as an option. Would like to know if I need to show proof of 2 previous Astra Zeneca vaccines and boosters? Or, do I present my U.S. passport for I.D. and are there more details I should be prepared to share with the pharmacy? Thanks in advance for information from someone who's done this recently.

  6. Hey all! As one of the dancers in this fantastic Barb Clippinger production, I wanted to take a moment to share the details and hope you'll all come support the shows. It's scripted as the History of Dance with dynamic dance numbers and wonderful singers to take you on a 2 hour journey. We are performing starting tomorrow (Wednesday/Thursday/Friday) at 4pm at Club Exotica which is a great space just behind the popular Ajijic Plaza restaurant, El Jardin. You can purchase tickets at the door for General Admission ($450 pesos) and enjoy a table for 4 on the main level or opt for VIP seating in the Balcony for $750 pesos. This includes champagne and truffles along with bar service throughout the show. All profits go to the School for Special Needs Children in Joco and The Turning Pointe Project. Both charities work to provide opportunities for local children. I hope you'll join us! Val Jones dennis clark 1

  8. ABSOLUTELY! Confirmed my GA ballot arrived and was counted. Now, with the run-off, will have to do it again. ARGH! Val
  9. GREAT show at BRAVO Theatre!!! Don't miss it! Still have Sunday at 4, Thursday and Friday at 7:30 and again Saturday and Sunday at 4. We went last night and it's one of the best shows we've seen lakeside in many years. Surely most of us are familiar with "Gone With the Wind" and this playwright takes it from there. It's hilarious to see Ken Y. acting as Scarlet and Prissy, Fred Koesling as Rhett Butler, Randy Warren as the conscientious playwright and the talented lady who played the Secretary for Mr. Selznick. I can just imagine what must have happened during those 5 days while the screenplay was being re-written. These 4 actors bring it ALL to life with fun antics, great dialogue, wonderful acting and a terrific set. It's GREAT fun, perfectly cast, well acted and guaranteed to provide 2 hours of FANTASTIC entertainment. I encourage you to check out this wonderful production before it's gone. Hey, if there's enough demand, perhaps BRAVO! will extend the run one more week. I realize there's competition with LLT's "12th Night" and our own "Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance" productions. This BRAVO show is a MUST SEE!

  11. I've printed my GA ballot but I don't think it's the right size. I may need to talk with someone before I mail it back. Thanks for the help! Val Jones.
  12. Many thanks to those who have clarified the legality of Mr. Wilder's Civil Law Notarizations and RON (Remote-Online-Notary) options for Ex-Pats living outside of the U.S. I know in the past there have been some U.S. Notaries who have "notarized" documents but as pointed out earlier, these are not legal and would not hold up under scrutiny. I encourage those needing these services to take advantage of Mr. Wilder's offer as well as my sister, Selecia Young-Jones, for future Notary and Apostille needs. Stay safe, keep it legal and enjoy paradise! Val Jones
  13. We've been looking forward to going to Bobby's new restaurant. I'm so sorry to hear his cancer has returned. Thinking of him, sending lots of positive and healing energy. Val
  14. We've had several meals at the restaurant as well as Ajijic home delivery. Great service, comprehensive menu, delicious food and so GREAT to see Lore and many other familiar faces. We have become happy, regular diners! Enjoy! Val Jones
  15. Have been thoroughly enjoying the food and service from Lore and Membrillo Restaurant. We've dined in and had delivery. All, delicious and economical. Val.
  16. Quite confident our RFC is legit. Have filed homeowner's and personal health insurance claims using the numbers. Just seems we weren't aware that a password was issued with the RFC number many years ago. ARGH! Thanks for the input, everyone. Val.
  17. Our RFC's are definitely accurate and correct. I have learned that apparently we were given a password/contraseña with it at the time but that was long ago, LOL. With the valid RFC and password, I should be able to do this from home using the link provided. Unfortunately, I have no idea where the password may be. So.....since I'm under 60 years of age, I'm being told I do require an appointment. I'm interested in checking out the Ocotlan office, though. It sounds like with or without an appointment, it should be pretty quick and easy so long as I have all of the requested documents to obtain this elusive "password." As always, many thanks for your notes and comments. Val Jones
  18. Need to get our Constancia Fiscal from one of the SAT offices in GDL. Has anyone had personal experience with either location, recently? If so, can you please share your recommendation? I have the documents needed and will call for an appointment, was hoping to hear from someone who's been there to accomplish this task before calling the office that may be most efficient. I understand that once there, the process only takes about 15 minutes. Thanks in advance. Salud! Val Jones :)
  19. Recently saw a gorgeous pool that was done with a pool liner instead of tiles. We need to remove our current old tiles, put fresh cement and either new tiles or possibly this pool liner option. Does anyone know if there's a local or GDL company who offers this type of service? Thanks in advance. Val Jones.
  20. ea93105, thanks for your response. Sounds great, we'll check it out. Salud! Val
  21. Has anyone been to the dog park? If so, can you tell us what it costs and if it's somewhat shaded? Thanks in advance! Val
  22. Although I love my 2021 iMac, I don't love that it is no longer compatible with the Apple external DVD/CD drive. I have one particular DVD that runs 2 hours that I need to get over to the newer iMac. Been dealing with Apple technicians for a couple of days now but it's getting pretty frustrating. Does anyone know if someone, locally, has the ability to take this DVD and copy the 2 hour video onto a thumb drive? If so, please share their contact information. Thanks in advance. Val Jones
  23. This problem continues to plague certain areas. My dear friend (Canadian) is there now trying to assist a friend who is suffering from some pretty serious health issues. She and I have had tremendous difficulty with communication using her iPhone and iPad the last few weeks. The service has been spotty and quite unreliable. This wasn't the problem when she arrived so it seems that whatever issues are happening there do have something to do with this current problem. Hopefully it will all be resolved quickly and fully. Salud! Val
  24. My sister, Selecia Young-Jones, is a certified RON (remote-online Notary.) She is based in Jacksonville, FL and has LEGALLY helped many Ex-Pats not only lakeside but around the world achieve legal notarization of documents for the U.S. Most states do accept RON from a certified Notary. Selecia has spent well over 20 years visiting lakeside and has many friends and contacts here. She also does Apostilles which can not only be difficult to obtain but costly as well. Should you require her services, you can contact her via WhatsApp at 904-333-7311, on her website at: rainbownotaryandnuptials.com, on FB or email her at: 904rainbow@gmail.com I and many others who have used her services, locally, can vouch for her professionalism, fair pricing and patience. Not everyone has the "tech" savvy and knowledge to work through this ZOOM-type of service and Selecia takes whatever time is needed to help Ex-Pats get the job done. You may have seen her ads in the GDL Reporter and the Ojo as well as the LCS Directory. As most know, it's extremely important to choose a reputable Notary to ensure document(s) are legally and properly Notarized. Gone are the days when U.S. Notaries who live(d) lakeside could just do someone a "favor." Wishing you well with any current and future Notary/Apostille needs. Val Jones
