  1. I have gotten a similar notice. It arrived the day after I paid my bill at CFE and two days after I received the bill.
  2. If you know Lynn MacDonald please let her know her permanente was found at the tianguis. It will be kept there today until the market closes and then will be brought to the LCS office. At the tianguis it is being held by the people who have the silver jewelry near the top of the market on the east side as you walk down.
  3. I wouldn't worry about the cleanliness at the other fondas, any more than you would worry about the cleanliness at the Korean place. Most of them have been in business for many, many years and are not in the business of making their customers sick. The comment that "Mexicans fill them" implies that Mexicans don't care about cleanliness or getting sick. Please. Don't put ideas on me I haven't said. You haven't been there in years so don't talk about places you don't go to and didn't when you were here.
  4. La Gallina Feliz is the one I recommend It is far superior to Mama Conejo.
  5. There are two restaurants in the abastos. One is Korean and the other is Chinese. The korean is good and the Chinese ok unless it changes back to when it was quite good. There are other Mexican street typse but I would worry about their cleanliness. The Mexicans fill them. They are cheap. There is a wonderful store directly across from the abastos on the street that has the overpass on Lazero Cardenas. It is a wholesale place that supplies food stores and restaurants but individuals can shop there as well. if your speak no Spanish bring a dictionary with you. I buy Turin chocolate, almonds, cocoa and spices there as well as other items at VERY good prices, If you want call me and I will tell you how to navigate shopping there. I can also help you with what things are available to you at the abastos. The prices are good but the buildings open to you are limited It is still worth a trip. I can also suggest other places you can go for lunch. AnnL
  6. I need to replace my hearing aids post haste. Have any of you bought them at Costco recently? Were you satisfied? What did they cost and how long until they were ready? Same questions regarding Oticon who is at Maskaras twice a week. Thank you.
  7. December 1 is the date the newly elected office holders begin their term.
  8. The Ajijic Delegado can be chosen by the incoming presidente or by a vote after the presidente of Chapala takes office. It has been done both ways in the past. I voted and can assure you there was no ballot for that office at this time. I believe Chuny Medeles has about 6 months to go on his term. He was appointed by the current president of Chapala.
  9. Chillin it is not in Chapala. Take the caraterra west through Ajijic. Just before the Tuesday market you will see some treesn the lake side. That is where to look for the sign on the building and drive into the parking.
  10. Go to Ocatlan. They manufacture furniture there and there are lots of furniture stores. Head towards Guadalajara. Bear right off the highway just before the road goes up an incline and then bears off onto a merge that takes you to Guadalajara. You do not want to go up that incline. You continue on the highway you just went onto as you went to the right. It will eventually take you to Ocatlan. I think the road you had to bear right on says "Saltillo" but am not certain. Happy shopping.
  11. I have eaten twice at The Smokehouse recently and think it is very good. I particularly loved their brisket....Excellent. I will try their hamburgers next as they look wonderful and a large group that was there when I saw the burgers said they were as good as they looked when asked how they tasted. The brisket is expensive for the portion but the hamburgers are a good pirce. Meals come with two sides. Their onion rings were very tasty and crisp.
  12. Thanks for the big laugh Chillin. You released us from the Ian against the group and a new low of conversation? and brought us back up to a more acceptable level.
  13. My daughter is adopted. She never had a desire to find her birth mother. She was , however, interested in finding out her ethnic background. She sent her DNA to 23 and me. The main ethnic background agreed with what I had been able to tell her although most of that was guessing from the little I knew. Two weeks after getting the information she got a note from 23 and Me and told her that they had the DNA of another woman who appears to be her 1/2 sister. That woman wanted to make contact with her if it was ok with her..The two have spoken on many occaissions and hope to meet soon. She has also spoken to her birth mother but does not pursue that relationship though it is cordial. This would never have happened without the advent of the DNA companies. This is not an isolated story. There are many for whom this has happened.
  14. Does anyone have the contact info for CREM Ajijic Music School? Would appreciate a phone number or address. Thanks.
  15. Dra. Justina used stem cells for her diabetes. She is an outstanding doctor. I would trust her completely and choose her over Hernandez any day.
  16. I just looked at this year's car insurance policy and found an R.F.C. number on it with my name above it. Can I assume it is my number not the agent's. Someone mentioned it should have some of your information such as a birth date woven into the R.F.C>. number. The number on the insurance policy does not. My curp number does.
  17. Thanks for the info El Bizco. Did you need an appointment at the Jocotopec hospital to get the renewal or is a walk in ok?
  18. I sent you a PM It was requesting the same information Cedros asked for. I don't know why it did not go through.
  19. All of the above and more. Prices vary but are significantly less than in NOB. Depends where you live how much of a difference.
  20. Thanks for the update JayBearII . A friend and I are planning to meet there on Saturday. We were wondering how it is.
  21. Like the first posters I too have tried Los Telares sporadically for years. Once I had good food and good service. There was a new manager. He left and it reverted back to the usual poor service and nondescript food.
  22. Starting March first gas will sell at free market value. There is some predictions the gas price could rise as much as 22% over the upcoming year.
  23. The gas shortages are being caused by the siphoning off of the gas by thieves.
