  1. I know a few that offer a few channels free. One offers free local (US Local) if you are a Disabled Veteran. It may offer for other types of Disability or SS. I only know the Veteran part because of Husband. He watches local Houston Tx news. ABC KTRK 13,NBC KPRC 2,CBS KHOU 11, CW 39 KIAH, and a few other channels I dont want to broadcast it here and have the company besieged from Chapala IP Addresses and cause me issues. If you PM me I will Message you back. PS, Dont expect a reply in 2 minutes. I will not know about your message until I am back on the Chapala Webboard. I do not have my Chrome home page set as Chapala Webboard (Like Some) that goes. DING/SIRENS or Rotating Beacons anytime someone messages
  2. There is also USTVNOW.com that did have some free channels. Same Company. Hope that helps
  3. Where do you see points? A friend just told me his wife found they had points and went to shop and got a rolling shopping cart. He didnt know about the points either
  4. Our cars were moving back and forth and furniture here in chapala on Gonzales gallo. Chapala-Mezcala carerterra
  5. I hope thats not i think name was computer land. Next to a cafe now closed. They charged us for basically nothing. They didnt use our own power supply. Said nothing was wrong. My husband had already cleaned it. Turned out our power brick that bad. But charged for cleaning. We took several laptops left for repair to Guad Technology plaza and had everything fixed within an hour as we checked out the area and ate. We have tried others but no luck. Most seem to send to Guad for repair which is fine if cant go. But I would ask a lot of questions. We just didn't like being charged for something not performed.
  6. I had a lot of work done at Dental Express. They had some bad reviews but I spoke to Dr Macias and it was the most pleasant experience I've ever had at a dentist. I now question some of the reviews. And very good pricing
  7. I suppose the monthly cost is depending your channel selection. What does the box and antenna and I suppose installation cost? Thanks "Cedros" in advance for the information.
  8. If I could ask. What do get? Ive never seen shaw. Ive heard people mentioning it. Is it like Direct TV?
  9. Its good you caught that. Im sure they making you go back to that same Oxxo because most are not run by Oxxo. Its almost setup the same as a paper route in the US. If you had one you know the Newspaper charges for everything. Plastic bags, rubber bands, newspaper. The newspaper. Usually gets all their money through subscriptions. its up to the paper boy to collect from the cash clients. The worst job I ever had. Oxxo will provide a location and inventory etc. The person running it gets a percentage. Its coming out of their pocket. But it was their employee
  10. I live out here. Moved from Zapopan to Ajijic and a few years later then to here. That was 5 years ago. Its nice and quiet. Neighbors are as nice as can be. They even came over and helped me repaint without me saying a word. Maybe its just me but the open areas seem to have a better breeze off the lake. A lot less traffic and crowds. Ive been out here long enough that I now consider Ajijic horrible with traffic. Thats how spoiled I am now. I would probably die of Stress if I had to go back to Los Angeles. The only things I have any Issue with is maybe shopping. Of course you can buy whatever you need but I still like to go to Soriana once in awhile. If she has a car thats going to help. If not plenty of "Local Ubers" and taxis.
  11. They call it virtual notary. This is just one example. Im sure there are many others. https://usvirtualnotary.com/service/international-notarization/?gclid=CjwKCAjwqauVBhBGEiwAXOepkWr8lQDr38amDLccf8w4YddLj4TIWlJU3obY2O682BGad8gA7HfJUhoCYY0QAvD_BwE
  12. There was a woman here that use to do it. I heard she passed away. There is a way of doing it online. Google it and you will see. It is. Us Notary it just done online
  13. They were on the Chapala-Mezcala road next to oh shirt. I heard they moved to riberas. Anyone know where or have contact?
  14. My amex card doesn't charge a foreign transaction fee. Nor my capital one and a few others. There are many that don't now. I'm not sure which amex you have but I would ask. Maybe you could change it too e that doesn't. That 3 percent can add up.
  15. There so many opinions and options about Local Medical Care. Probably more than other communities due to the Large older Expat Community. We certainly have lots of Medical personnel of every type. I myself had asked your question and was given his name. I either couldn't get a good diagnosis or I had several and they conflicted I have been here quite awhile I'm older and I have seen a lot of Doctors here. It's strange but I've had issues without even knowing and this Doctor has determined medical issues with me through only personal observation even when it wasn't his specialty. Clues. He has shown an uncanny ability of observation and he has been 100% correct on different occasions. He caught things I wasn't even asking about. So a good diagnostician. He is a very knowledgeable doctor. And on things I have asked about, knock on wood, he has been able to take care of it or tell me who could. So far he hasn't been wrong. He is American went to Medical school in Guadalajara. His name is Dr. Sam Thelin. You can find his office info on Google Maps just search his name or his website drthelin.com. Hope things can work out wherever you go. best of luck
  16. There is a guy at the Monday Chapala Teanguis that does it. His table is full of small electronic gizmos, mini external drives, small camera stands, many different cables, etc and watches and watch batteries and tools to open those special backs
  17. Maybe put in an English style roundabout so niether side can get through
  18. Yea I thought if you knew Houston You might know River Oaks it's just another good example. You can pay almost half for the same square footage house 10 miles from river oaks. I'm sure you know. It's not just Mexico. I traveled most of my adult life all over the World. I've heard this same discussion many times
  19. Do you think Maids in Hollywood California or better yet Beverly Hills make more than Maids in South Central Los Angeles? Less miles apart than Chapala and Guadalajara. Let's not talk houses. You think the housekeepers get paid better (Including tips) at Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills or The Ramada Inn on Hollywood Blvd I know several more places exactly the same all over the United States and other Countries.
  20. I could use some help. Things are getting desperate for me. My GP Dr said he knew of a great dentist but they had left awhile because of the pandemic. Well months have past and still no dentist. I now have several teeth broken off below the gumline. I have though a lot about all this and have just decided to get extractions and go with dentures. I've heard all about implants etc. But it looks like Extractions and dentures. Ive seen and heard about Dental Express but I've gotten just as many bad things as good about them. I just need someone to help me figure. I don't want a lot complications, abscess, or infections or pain etc. Just need some teeth pulled and dentures. My biggest concern are the ones that have broken off below the gumline. Can anyone help me? Give me a name to call. They aren't giving me any pain at the time but when do boy... It a lot of pain.
