  1. Qty 2 Yamaha BR15 speakers and qty 2 On-Stage SS8800 crank-up speaker stands. All in excellent condition. Asking 8,500 pesos (half the cost new). 376-766-4389.
  2. Mainecoons; want to spray our palm trees as a general precaution against any disease or insect, especially the black beetle. Palm tree in neighbor's garden is starting to look infected with something (all leaves turning yellow) and we want to protect against the spread of anything bad!
  3. Tried 2 well-known tree companies, both of whom say that they don't do any palm tree spraying. So, looking for a company or person who does this kind of work. Would be grateful for any contact information or details?
  4. For information, there is an established Parkinson's Support Group at Lakeside. Meetings are held once a month and we have a social event, again every month. If interested, then call Lou @ 376-765-3305 or 55 2724 5293 or Stan 376-766-4389 or 333-116-0996.
  5. A couple of years ago, I went to renew my car license in Chapala and had to pay 2 parking tickets from Guadalajara. Needless to say, I hadn't been anywhere near Guad on the dates given. Maybe a similar situation for you SunFan?
  6. The next-door real estate company - Fenix - I believe.
  7. The price depends of course upon the size of the window/door and whether you want the shutter electrically operated or opened/closed by hand. As a guide (prices may have risen since 2017 when we were installed) a window size 150 x 140cms and hand operated was 6000 pesos; a window 180 x 140cms electrically operated was 20,300 pesos. We had 2 electrically operated installed and the remainder are hand operated, including a shutter for the front entrance door. The 'hand operation' is just a self-retractable strap, very easy to use. The sense of security at night and when we are away has been well-worth the cost, plus the fringe benefits of a large reduction in the outside noise (cohotes, dogs, etc.)
  8. Carlos at comfortsolutions is the man. Fitted roller shutters to all our doors and windows. Speaks good English (and even better Spanish). 331-228-5377.
  9. I really wanted to know if Gloria was still working and if so, where?
  10. Thank you Eric, I await your further response.
  11. Can anyone tell me what happened to Gloria, the hygienist who worked with the late Dr. Don? Be grateful for any information.
  12. Was at El Sombrero last night and had the grilled fish and chips. The fish pieces were absolutely disgusting - dry, over-cooked and burnt on the bottom. I left the fish after trying to eat a piece and pointed out to the waiter how bad it was. They did ask me if I wanted anything else, but after the terrible fish I was not inclined to try anything else from the kitchen. Of course they hit me with the full bill for the meal upon leaving, not even the courtesy to offer a reduction. A restaurant to avoid in my opinion.
  13. I also highly recommend Gualberto Real and have used them 3 times for different jobs, They come to your home address and can usually fix the appliance in-situ without having to take it back to their workshop. They are located on the lateral road directly opposite the 'old' Maskaras Clinic. There is quite often one of the kids in the workshop (if it is open) whilst the guys are out on a repair job.
  14. The round solar rings are not worth the money that they cost. We found that they lasted 2 years if you were very lucky and that any holes that developed were practically impossible to repair. Both the side ring and the inflatable center of the solar rings were susceptible to developing holes and subsequently filling with water. Square solar pool heaters ('rings') were easily locally manufactured and at a low cost for our complex pool and have proved to be far better than any we have seen commercially available. PM for further details. I will post a photo tomorrow (Thursday).
