  1. We don’t own the property. We were the previous renter and the meter is in our name.   The property is a long term lease. We didn't want the new tenant to lose power so we didn’t disconnect when we moved. Now she is getting the run around from CFE on changing to her name. The owner does not want it in his name.  
    So back to the question, can anyone confirm if a curp is needed and/or a temporal or permanente for a cfe account. 

  2. I have been here for 13 years and would like to remind everybody to be polite when driving.  If you are on one of those narrow two way streets pull over into an empty spot if you can so the other guy can pass.  If someone does it for you make sure you wave a gracias to them.  when you are on the carretara slow down and let other cars in.  You can do this by either flashing your lights or giving them the hand signal that means go ahed.  This signal is putting your hand up in front of your face with your palm facing your face.  You do this symbol for letting pedestrians cross as well.  It is also used for Gracias.  And my final tip for the road is “pull out and give er”. There is no need to be a scardy pants when you are trying to enter the carretara.  Just put your nose of your car out there, you will notice most people will slow down and let you cross or into the stream of traffic.  Keep things moving folks!

  3. Oh please, no more leaf blowers. They are so noisy as compared to the nice old fashioned swish of a homemade mexican broom. Our neighbour has one and I would like to grab it and throw it into the lake. He revs it up and down up and down to get a leaf out of a crack. Sooo annoying. Please lets not add more noise to our Enviroment.
