    Chauchau Alternative?

    I've been buying and really enjoying chauchau. But now the season seems to be over. I've seen something similar but a bit fatter but also flatter. Maybe these things...

    I have a Pixel2 and Google Fi and I am convinced that I can have two numbers. Does anyone do this? Experience? In the past when visiting here I used a Nexus 5 and just exchanged my US sim chip for my Personal chip. Of course that has obvious disadvantages but saved me a lot of money. This...

    ISO Ham Flavoring

    Has anyone seen any kind of ham flavoring here? It's so great on steamed green beans. I don't mind killing an afternoon wandering around China Town, but if anyone knows of a sure source I'd sure be interested. Thanks, Bob

    Finding a dishtowel which actually absorbs water?

    How would I find a dishtowel here which actually absorbs water? The one I bought at the local Disco and which claims to be cotton actually repels water. So I asked the landlady for one and she gave me one but it doesn't really absorb water either. What label do I need to look for and where...

    I can'f find any recent discussion of this subject. (Due in part to the fact that "vpn" is not a valid search word here.) Does vpn still work? Which vpn providers work or work best? Does the Google Fi vpn work? Thanks, Bob

    Fixed line telephones with 11- prefixes?

    I've always thought that phone numbers starting with 11 or 15 followed by 8 digits were cell phones. But just now when I tried to send an SMS message to an 11-xxxx-xxxx number I then got an SMS text (but not in the same thread) saying "Gracias por utilizar el servicio de envio de SMS a...

    Fixins For Chili Con Carne

    I've been thinking that I might bring a package or two of McCormicks Chili seasoning back to BsAs. But I don't recall ever seeing two of the essential ingredients there - beans (either dark red kidney beans or black beans) and canned diced tomatoes. I know I could use fresh tomatoes but would...

    Any ideas on where to find a nightlight? I tried the electrical section at Easy and the baby aisles at Jumbo but no luck. I don't care about appearance, but I would much prefer CFL or LED over incandescent. Thanks, Bob

    Kellogg 100% Bran Cereal ?

    A year ago I could find the Original but not my preferred Bran Buds. Yesterday I could not find any Kellogg 100% bran cereal at either of two Discos. I bought a local brand and it is edible. But I'd sure like to find one of the Kellogg products. Not interested in anything less than 100%/...

    Mercadolibre Basics

    My Spanish is not good enough to make sense of the help info on MeradoLibre. And in my experience Google Translate is not much better than my Spanish. I'm interested in a piano. I asked the seller if I can see it but he says that the rules won't allow him to give me an address or phone...
