  1. We've been cleaning house after doing some major remodeling and have 3 laptop computers that we'd like to get rid of (give away). Because of the age of a couple of them don't know if they would even worth messing with. What I've got: Dell Inspiron 8600 (17 yrs old) MSI A6200 (10 yrs old) Any suggestions?
  2. Unless you have someone who has dug their own well on their property or someone who doesn't live there permanently and can simply get a pipa (water truck) delivered when they need it. I live in a fracc also and it's a big problem.
  3. I also use Tamsulosina. Be careful where you buy it. They used to sell it in boxes of 90 capsules but is available now only in boxes of 20. I bought some at Guadalajara pharmacy and it was 139p for 1 box. Week later bought 2 boxes for 79p at Costco, different manufacturer but same product.
  4. Sorry, my bad, didn't read the post clear enough!
  5. Don't know if it changed later but they were allowing people to park in the upper lot by the school.
  6. I'm 73, not been vaccinated before. Got my shot today in Chapala. If you don't have a registration form don't worry they are set up to get it for you, do need the other documents though. They started at 8 and we were out by 10. Very well organized.
  7. Don't feel bad, you're all not alone. We have megacable and it's continually going out. Could be for 5 minutes or half a day. When we call it's usually a message saying that they're aware of the problem in our area and it will be fixed soon. The last time after they had someone come to our home to inspect they replaced the router, still went out. Now they are saying that it's because they are upgrading the fiber optics. we shall see.
  8. What's supposed to happen after you fill out the registration? My wife and I filled them out over a month ago and have heard nothing.
  9. I wish mine were that easy. I use the PO that services Ixtlahuacan and as of this Tues. they still didn't have it. I have a BBVA account and they won't accept U.S. Treasury checks even though my SS check is deposited automatically in my account. Then I have to mail it to my credit union in San Diego because they're not set up for android phones only iphone.
  10. I use my BBVA account to receive my SS checks so the stimulus checks get mailed to me. For some reason it seems to take a month or more for the checks to get down here.
  11. Curious to see who has received theirs. Still waiting
  12. Word of warning, the new coin doesn't look exactly like that. It's all gold with no silver center piece. While it does look very handsome it's quite easy to confuse it with a 10p coin.
  13. My wife got hers on 4/6. Mine is hopefully being mailed to me. Curious to see how many weeks that will take.
  14. Roses do very well here. Also they are incredibly cheap. Why not look into a climbing rose?
  15. How timely! Just got gas about 5 minutes ago. Zeta Gas. 12.66/lt. Back in January it was 10.81/lt.
  16. The one in SJC has always been our favorite. Might not always have the best prices but the variety and the care that they give to the plants are top notch.
  17. Since I get mine mailed to me I'm not expecting to have it show up for another month or so.
  18. I just went this morning and they have all the lights working. Coming down the libremento get in the right lane and take the right exit, just before you exit onto the main road there is another light stopping traffic from blocking the entrance to the road on the right side of the auto parts store.
  19. LOL. Probably the same one I received yesterday telling me that my $600 stimulus check was on it's way. I received the check March 1st, almost a month after it was sent. Since my bank, Bancomer, won't accept a US treasury check, no matter the amount, I've been forced to mail the check to our credit union in the states. With the $1200 check I accidently sent it by regular mail, costing 69p, and it arrived in San Diego about a week later. The $600 check I sent through DHL, costing over 900p, and it arrived in 2 days. Both checks I used IShop.
  20. I agree about taking it to the dealer. However the dealer recommends every 10k km or 1 year which ever comes first. I suppose the age of the vehicle might play into it also..
  21. I think it must vary slightly from account to account then. Mine is always deposited on the 4th depending on what day of the week the 4th falls on. Like next month it will be deposited on the 2nd because the 4th is on Sunday. I also bank at Bancomer.
  22. Nice example of a cantera fountain! Good luck in your search.
  23. Do you want concrete or cantera stone? If the later try the cantera stone yard next to Tobolandia. They had several in stock the last time I was there or they can custom make one for you.
