  1. I AM the O P. And what you put in bold was the topic heading. Here's the first line of the actual post: "Those heavy BLACK arrows ( left, right, or straight ahead) encircled with RED and a diagonal running through that hang on traffic light arms aren't there as a joke......" Just take your redneck self back to your land of cowboys and country music and stop playing (not very good at it) psychologist.
  2. I just figured out who "Melody Hancock" is after reading this weeks' Guad Reporter "Letter to the Editor" p.10.......direct verbatim quote from part of that letter follows: "....Noise.........Why are these noisy conditions not supervised by authorities? Set noise standards and enforce them. Visitors, and those newly moving here, are not having any fun ( my reaction.... then why stay?) and we can take our money elsewhere (my mental response---- PLEASE! Do so!!) ............ We travellers talk to each other and this talk will turn off future visitors.............." (Gee..... hasn't worked so far.........) Are my suspicions right? Only the Shadow knows........
  3. And you KNOW this HOW oh omniscient one????? Because I certainly DO personally know 3 different friends who've had serious vehicle accidents ( and in two cases injuries) right at that infamous WM corner......... and in all cases due to negligence on drivers other than themselves (police reports etc)., running red lights or ignoring posted DO NOT signs. But then I've suddenly realized.... you hate this topic because YOU are one of the offenders!!! Just because you've been lucky so far doesn't give you the right to be so high and mighty.
  4. IMO it's about time Eldon contacts a notario and learns in advance, owing to personal situation re: many different aspects, what purchase costs would apply in his particular case.
  5. Earthing (also known as grounding) refers to the discovery that bodily contact with the Earth's natural electric charge stabilizes the physiology at the deepest levels, reduces inflammation, pain, and stress, improves blood flow, energy, and sleep, and generates greater well-being. Take off your shoes..... go outside (grass is nice) and stand there for a while with both feet firmly planted. Done 😊
  6. Good day to buy! Just had our tank filled and price was $11.50 pesos per. That's down from last fill at $13.24 on Aug 1.
  7. Want to add the following as illustration of how things are here now. Tuesday I was on carretera headed west, but east of that T-intersection libramiento traffic light. Car came down the libramiento a little faster than should be, but guessing trying to catch that light. HOWEVER it blazed right on thru (totally ignoring the overhead DO NOT sign ) into the WM parking lot, which meant crossing the lateral/service road (take your pick) that serves cars and buses.... Autozone, WM, or bus stop. There was not ONE second of hesitation on driver's part and since people using that road don't expect someone coming straight thru, a unwary driver could easily have been broadsided at speed. In fact there was an injury accident the week prior just after 9 a.m. (ambulance and cops) closer to the west edge of Autozone building.... didn't see that one happen but paramedics were putting someone in the "bus" when I passed. Both vehicles were in that lateral but positioning made it hard to tell where they each started. Ans "Pappy", it's too long since you've lived here to have an excuse to wade in. As the old country music song goes "..... you don't know what it's li-ike....." 🎸
  8. I know of a house my landlord's brother is in the process of buying that should fill most of your needs...... BUT it won't wait for an April possession. They're trying to have it ready to be available Jan 1 or soon after..... and it's for long term only PM me for more info
  9. Those heavy BLACK arrows ( left, right, or straight ahead) encircled with RED and a diagonal running through that hang on traffic light arms aren't there as a joke. Yes, I know the (worst offender) T-intersection at Walmart on the carretera was designed by a lunatic high on drugs and booze who'd never visited their work before or after. Yes it's a MAJOR P I T A to all, me included. But those arrows are there for a reason.... and not just in that location. Do I care when those to whom the rules "don't apply", or who are simply too lazy or important to obey them, break a law on ignoring? Only a little. What I DO care about a LOT is your behaviour has a direct possibility of affecting MY life ( or someone else's) in the event your actions provoke an accident that could result in my/their car being crunched or I/others are personally injured........or worse. (Yes... I'm insured. Not all are the same.) Driving is a privilege... please don't abuse it.
  10. This is life in Mexico. If you can't deal with it, I suggest you move somewhere else
  11. José Luis Hernández ( El Vaquero) workshop in east San Antonio 2 doors above Ramón Corona on the street that runs downhill from Sunrise Restaurant 333 465 5175 excellent work over 22 years for us in 4 different houses
  12. OK.... we've all ( myself included) drifted off topic. PLEASE.... any more recommendation to OP request? Gracias
  13. Well my freshman year was 1960, but the grammar teachers I referred to were from the mid-late ´50's, and big red "X " with points deducted would have accompanied that use. However, since it's been so long since TV news broadcasters ( in English) started trashing proper English I hardly even hear them any more, I guess other rules have slackened too.
  14. Touchy touchy..... playing with you there elevator....... tho' when I was in school (guessing long before you) there was definitely no option with our grammar teachers. But then this is the first year I can remember where Guad and D.F. news people used fin de semana larga instead of puente. Another sign of changing times......
  15. Methinks you need to take it again amigo!! 🤣 🤣🤣 Meanwhile thanks so much for the recommendation. Passing it on right away.
  16. A friend in late stages of extensive remodel on a large house / property finds herself looking because she's tired of having men there with whom she cannot communicate. Yes.... she knows is her fault ... but she's not learning quickly enough for NOW. Own vehicle / moto required for west-of-Ajijic location. I can't help becasue I only know excellent non-English speaking ones. Please supply ( or p.m.) names /contact info etc. of people you have used and will recommend when asked. Meanwhile she's looking on FB. The HOPE is we'll come up with at least one name in common ☺️ but if not, one way or the other she'll find what she's looking for. Thank you in advance.
  17. Us too. 24 years in 4 different houses ...... occasionally a small problem, but with a little diligent attention ... done! ( up to 6 cats, up to 5 dogs)
  18. Sure a LOT of brickwork there IMO the designer/architect must have a father-in-law in the brick-making/selling business 🤣
  19. just go into the office (NE corner of San A plaza) and take it from there
  20. Update from RIchie after doctor visit....only to keep those interested in the loop "received both good news and bad news ...the good news is that my left hand is doing very well and is gradually welding my bone, they were surprised at my good progress. but the right wrist, a bone moved a lot and a fragment of the radial bone came off and they will have to do surgery again. They haven't told me what day yet but it will most likely be the following week. I am very sad and upset." That said, he no longer has to wear any kind of support splint on the left hand/wrist so he's very upbeat about that part. Onward and upward ☺️
