  1. Yeah that one. I cleaned it some time ago. Got an answer for me? Better example is the one across from the school. Thanks for putting this up, great example of the persistent problem tagger. Please keep an eye out and PM me with location of any of their tags I miss.
  2. Yes, saw that, going to check. However the existing sign is trash and hoping to tell the owner where to find one like the two I mentioned.
  3. Helping someone with a chronic tagging problem on a no parking sign find the kind that one can wipe the graffiti off with solvent without damaging the sign or message. As an example, across from the school next to the Plaza and across from the church in Ajijic, the garage doors there have that type of No E sign and size they are looking for. t appears it may have some sort of coating on it that won't allow graffiti to stick. The no right turn sign at the end of Guadalupe Victoria at the NE entrance to the Plaza is also graffiti proof and easy to clean. The regular painted ones don't work because they are damaged by graffiti removal. That is all the sign shop at the east end of San Antonio on the Carretera has. Thanks.
  4. You're welcome. Can anyone help out? I'm pushing 80, this isn't as easy as it was 14 years ago, let me tell ya. 😗 If nothing else I need your eyes out there spotting.
  5. That is really good information. We are planning on changing out our kitchen sink and the sink opening would require some in situ cutting. They sound like just the folks to do it. Thanks very much for your post!
  6. Asking for your eyes looking for tags from an extremely persistent group of taggers, 2-3 I estimate. Tags are: ZABU and sometimes ZABUC. They liked locations like street signs, no parking signs, CFE and TelMex street boxes and meter boxes. Their #1 sites are across from Gossips restaurant and a decrepit planter on the SE corner of Galeana and Guadalupe Victoria. Recently they have tagged a real estate sign on J. E. Rosa just above Constitucion. They've also tagged all three bus shelters east of Revolucion on the Carreterra. They seem to operate mainly east of Colon and south of the carretera though I saw one of their tags this morning over by Coca Cola. I'll get that one in the next day or so. They come out shortly after dark, around 10-10:30 PM. Please PM me with any sightings of their tags. This has literally gone on for months, I go out most mornings to remove their tags as they tag almost nightly! I did get eyes on several of them briefly one evening. One around 16 or so, the other younger. I think there is now a third. If you would like to help me stake out their most frequent location, nearly nightly, also please PM me. I don't want to take that on by myself. If they tag on or near your property, please remove if possible and let me know where it was located. Our pueblo is become a very notable place for many beautiful murals. We do not want to give these tagger punks any permission to vandalize here. Feel free to ask any questions you have in this thread or via PM. Thanks!
  7. We made the mistake of ordering a pizza there. It was so bad we threw it out. Truthfully that is the first time in my long life I got a truly inedible pizza and had to throw it out. We let them know on their FB page, not a response of any kind. What the heck happened there? Change hands?
  8. That just shows you how crazy the rents have gotten around here. Thanks for the link.
  9. The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will. At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later, the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide. The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol poisoning. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do. But the Catholic church came up with a more creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter. Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t seen a squirrel since.
  10. POLL: Who thinks we need this sign on the carretera in both Spanish and English? 🤣
  11. Let's stick to the fun pictures and cartoons here please. Thread starter (me).
  12. The traffic here has certainly exploded since we moved here 15 years ago. But that is basically true all over the country as private vehicle ownership has also exploded. The huge increase in local traffic is why, IMO, it is time to start replacing the loose cobblestones on the busy streets with the stone set pavement with topes as they have, for example, right around the plaza. Although it would increase traffic on my street a lot I think it is time to bow to the inevitable and do that sort of paving on 16 de Sept. and Constitucion. At least there would be a lot less dust.
  13. I believe it went way down to like 1 or 1.5 percent of total account value. Be interesting to see how long that lasts.
  14. I believe the other big sticking point with this proposal is the way it would be financed. Also, I understood the original proposal required construction of a new treatment plant. That big condo development on the south side of Riberas built their own. If I read this correctly it is now proposed to collect the waste and send it to San Antonio where I assume there is either sufficient capacity or it would be added. You can count on all those septic tanks in Riberas are polluting the ground water and eventually the lake. There is no way the land can assimilate that density of septic tanks and drain fields. The usual standards for such disposal call for an acre or more and even that is pushing it. You can't make projects like this voluntary. Riberas presents a huge environmental threat to the ground water and lake and the government should step in, build the system and finance it off of higher property taxes, using mandatory collection/confiscation as required. The usual practice also requires connection within a set time frame, usually a year or less.
  15. Awesome, THANKS! Use Google Search to get around the lousy search engine here. Damn! I never thought of that, great idea. Thanks for it!
  16. OK this is weird. I tried searching for that exact phrase as a topic "Shoe repair shop" and came up with everything but that thread. Tried a general search, same thing. The search function on this board is really weak. By chance would you have a link? Just where is the place in Chapala?
