  1. Would it be possible for you to flip that letter over and post a pic to show the channels that will be eliminated without this update? Thank you.
  2. Thanks to both of you. I am hoping for one or two additional suggestions, also.
  3. Any suggestions for a competent English speaking personal counselor locally? Can be male or female. Social worker, psychologist or neither. Good listening and reflecting skills important. Thank you.
  4. Excellent. Long overdue. Glad they finally tried to make things clearer. So much confusion. So many misinformed rumors.
  5. Happened to one of my neighbors, also. She was not happy to have to fly to a Mexican Consulate in the US to restart the process.
  6. Temporal and Permanente Residents were told to get in line for Mexicans in GDL on the last two flights that I have taken.
  7. Lake Chapala has been a hotbed for UFO sightings since the '40's.
  8. Sounds like several of us bought that nice, large Hamilton Beach convection oven. I love mine. Don't know what I did without it besides waste a lot of propane waiting for the gas stove oven to heat and then more when I was cooking or heating something that wasn't a meal for four or more, but just me. Not to mention the stove oven could heat up half the house, so I couldn't use it for almost three months a year. No problems like that with the countertop convection. No wasted counter space, either. Sits perfectly on top of the microwave. One of my wiser purchases here.
  9. 65 posts and I recall 2 being helpful and appropriate. Sad.
  10. Interesting. As of January, 2015 Mexico made illegal the importation or sale of all Electrónic cigarettes throughout the country. Enforced or not enforced? Good luck.
  11. I think these became illegal to sell in Mexico about a year ago.
  12. Unable to use " like" button. When I try screen says I have used all Ten of my daily " likes" when I have used none at all. Dan Houck said you are the only one who can fix what he called a "software glitch". I really enjoy " liking helpful and positive responses. Hope you can help, thank you.

  13. I am being blocked from using the like function by the screen that says I have used my daily allotment of 10 when I have used none in over 48 hours. Can you help me? Thank you.

      Just got notice that all likes were used after giving two likes.

    3. moderator-2


      For stuff like this you have to contact ADMIN "Chapala."  He is at the top of the moderator list on the home page.  We don't have the ability to fix software problems.


  14. Effects sound similar to dry chlorine that is commonly used all the time in swimming pools. Don't get too close and inhale that, either.
  15. In the States, hospice care can begin when a terminal patient is expected to live six months or less according to physician in writing. That is when my mother's insurance kicked in for hospice care coverage. Probably, not the same here.
  16. I had my electrician install a simple on/off switch for my doorbell due to similar problems mentioned above. When I am expecting someone, I turn switch on. When I am not, I turn switch off. I can ignore the shouting and banging, but that buzzer of a doorbell was my big problem. Not any more.
  17. I wanted a 12,000 BTU which is the largest size for 110-115. I don't have 220 and the expense to add it was prohibitive. ElectroVenta had a Mirage for under 6,000, but both my installer and myself felt the LG at Home Depot for 6799 was a little better quality with an almost silent condenser, which was important to me because it was being placed very near a neighbor's window. With materials, installation was 2300 for a total of 9099. Not the best deal in the world, but not the worst. Most importantly, now that everything is installed and working, I am happy with the decision. I do appreciate your comments and those of most of the other posters and did take those into consideration, even though the results may make it appear as if I did not.
  18. Mini split is installed. I took a recommendation from a friend on Face Book for Alberto Farias who had training in the States as well as working experience in all phases of making sure mini split is installed according to the code of his former U.S. city. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and the quality of the man, himself. Calls himself the Home Doctor and is experienced in plumbing, electrical, painting, pools, a/c, heaters, and all major appliance repairs. Strong recommendation. Lives in Joco and works all of lakeside. Alberto Farias 331 706 9407 . 387 763 1200
  19. Your best choice will be the one that your physician recommends to you that best meets your needs.
  20. Not sure I can make it to June 14. Is mini split the best way to go? How loud is compressor and what would be a minimum distance from windows? Electro Venta for sale and installation? Buy elsewhere and hire installer? Recommendations for installer? Only six questions. Not bad. Narrowed down from original 15. Thank you to anyone who has one and can give this a/c newbie some sound advice.
  21. I always go directly to the roof for parking. Right next to the elevator which exits at the walkway to terminal. Have never seen even a dozen cars up there.
  22. Chopo does. They don't even ask me for my card. They just do it and then tell me. Guess one look is all it takes.
