    Where were all of you when this was voted on for Ajijic only? The state was not involved.  About 2 12 or 3 years ago the last mayor called for a vote to approve or veto a bike lane through Ajijic.   It was held on a Sunday morning on the Colon side of the plaza.  Over 100 young men were brought there and signed in to vote.  Only about 6 of us were older adults.  The young men were PRI voters who owed allegiance to the then mayor.

    I voted.  How did I and the other 5 non PRI voters know about the vote?  We saw it in the Guadalajara Reporter and felt it important enough to get up early and go to vote.

    Too bad you all didn't do the same. 


  2. I read the celebration of his life would be the 15th of February but where is to be announced when it is set.

    The obit just skimmed much of what he did to help those in need in our community.  The YEARS he spent interviewing and translating for the Mexican parents who brought their children to the clinic looking for major  medical help from Ninos Incapacitado was barely mentioned.  It was a long term commitment that will probably never be equaled.

    RIP Jim.


  3. I went to get my car registration on Thursday.  They gave me the paper but no sticker and told me to come back on February 2nd.  When I checked the calendar I saw the 2nd is a Sunday.   Are they opening another day because of the backup or could have heard wrong.  The clerk giving out the registration paper and the cop said the same thing and told me to go to the large room on the side of the counter when I return.


  4. Costco in the Guadalajara now charges for parking.  You have to get a stamped time card as soon as you enter the building and post it into the machine when you go to the driveway exit to pay or you need to back out of the driveway and return to the building to get stamped.  It is a bloody hassle.

  5. I believe Computer Guy is correct.  About 4 weeks ago my friend was staying at the hotel and all the residents were invited to dinner by the hotel one evening. It was a shake down trial of food and staff.

    She said it was excellent.  She would have known if Giovanni was there and no mention was made of him nor any sighting.

  6. I had lunch with a large group of people last week.  The woman sitting next to me is Canadian.  She asked me what to tip.  She was planning to tip 10% as she felt that was sufficient.  The service by the way had been excellent. 

    I suggested at least15%.  I did not pay attention to what she did so don't know if she followed what I suggested.  I left more than what I had planned to make sure the waitress was  compensated for her excellent service with our large group.

  7. Rudy Renteria and Gustavo both are old timers who were building here long before most the present residents and contractors arrived..Since everyone knew them and their work quality they became the go to for honesty and quality of work.  They never lowered their standards when the influx of people arrived starting in 2003.  They still are quality go to people with knowledge of how to build in the lakeside area.
