Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Mexico Football Gold Medal

We're all excited here in our part of the world today. This morning we watched Mexico win the gold medal in football (soccer) against Brazil. Final score 2-1. This was actually the first soccer game that I've watched and what a game it was! Mexico scored a goal in the opening minutes of the game which gave them a wonderful momentum for the remainder of the game. We met with friends and many others (Mexicans, Americans, and Canadians) at a local restaurant to watch the game and had a wonderful time. I've never been much of a sports enthusiast but it was an honor to be able to take part in our adopted country's victory -- Viva Mexico!
