  1. There is an appliance repair shop on upper Colon, east side, just one block up from the Carretera. A long time ago I did buy a vacuum bag there for an old Hoover vacuum. Give them a try.
  2. We went and got ours today at Seguro Popular (Centro Medico) in Chapala.
  3. Sorry, that was not my intention. I have found that if we send an email to noc@mail.ilox.mx if we are having problems, we usually get a quick response. Again, did not mean to hurt you.
  4. We have had for several months now and love it. Absolutely no comparison with Telmex.
  5. Pete, For accuracy, Channel 094 is the CTV News Network and 096 is the CBC New Networks. These are national news services, as opposed to the local CBC and CTV channels.
  6. Anybody else going to take their ballot to the Canadian Consulate. I saw the above message to list and missed the boat. If anyone else is going, could you send me a PM and we can arrange to meet so I can give you mine to take along. Thanks very much. I am in Villa Nova.
  7. If you have to get one in GDL, I used Luzma Grande as a facilitator. She is very good at her job. I don't have her phone number, but she posts on Facebook for Ajijic Real Estate as she works there. You can always call there and ask for her cell number.
  8. When we drove by the restaurant this morning just before 9am, the restaurant and other locales in that strip mall were all closed.
  9. I think an Ajijic Archives page is a wonderful idea.
  10. My friend has used Dr. Jung on two occasions and has been very satisfied with the service he received.
  11. Well, wouldn't you know, last night it finally worked. We also watch without VPN for both Prime Video and Netflix.
  12. Anyone who just needs foot nails trimmed - there is a 'podologo' in Chapala on the lake side just before you get to Madero. He used to be on the corner of the building (ground floor), but is now located one or two locales towards Madero. Keep your eye out for his sign in the window.
  13. Good to know from a resident of Chapala. Then I just say I would like to see them in the village of Ajijic.
  14. For the last two evenings in a row we have been unable to open Prime Video, and yet during the day we can. Tried contacting Prime Video directly, but they told me they could not help as our settings to Prime were through Amazon.mx and we would have to contact them. Well, after spending almost half an hour trying to do it, I gave up. Has anyone else had that problem and found a solution to it? We are able to open Netflix at night so I don't think it is an internet problem, but must be a Prime problem. Any help would be appreciated. By the way, we have Ilox high-speed internet.
  15. I am already registered. They told me that once the election writ was dropped, that my voting kit would be sent to me by courier. I seem to recall them saying that there would be enclosed a return waybill so it can be sent back to them by courier.
  16. So glad the Transitos are doing their job. They could make so much more revenue for the municipality by enforcing the traffic laws, especially in Ajijic. You never see Transitos in the village of Ajijic (or Chapala for that matter). They could make a ton of money there with parking spaces taken up by boxes or whatever else the owners of the businesses put out to prevent parking. I just wish they would also crack down on the use of cell phones while driving. We see so many people driving around lakeside with the damn phone either stuck to their ear, or the driver's head down looking at it. Just my little rant.
  17. I would also like more information on this. Are their quoted rates in US dollars or Canadian. How much does it cost to rent the android box? We have good speeds as we have Ilox, but we currently use Shaw satellite for 500 pesos a month, and I believe that rate is hard to beat.
  18. And they are excellent there. Have had them many times.
  19. Just so you know in future, it is "Tinaco".
  20. But they didn't say they wanted to become citizens of Mexico. They said they wanted to get their RP (I assume that means Residente Permanente).
  21. Ajijic is overflowing with gringos and Mexicans almost all year round now. If I had to do it over, I would live in Chapala as things are cheaper, especially rents and you don't have to spend time and gasoline stuck in traffic on the Carretera (highway). They have Soriana, which is a little more expensive than Walmart, but not that much. During high season when the snowbirds are here, traffic on the Carretera between San Antonio and West Ajijic is a slow process to get anywhere. San Juan Cosala is a little too rustic for me. I think my Spanish is good enough to survive in Jocotepec, but now I like Chapala more. Many nice people there. I think you can find rentals in Chapala almost anytime of the year. Ajijic is a little more difficult in high season.
  22. Switch to Ilox if it is in your neighbourhood. We did and are extremely happy with it. Have speeds between 45 and 90 Mbps. Sure service drops once in a while, but not that often. We are very happy and pay the same price 599 pesos as we did with Telmex, except have better service.
  23. Proud to see that this project is going so well.
  24. Is there any plan in the future to recycle compostable plastic bags. I notice more stores are starting to use these. Also, a Mexican wine called "California", which is in a tetra box says "reciclame" on the carton. It would be great if these, along with tetra boxes for milk could be recycled (as many people use these), as well as paper. I know paper is the least valuable item, and currently I take mine to a place just as you enter Chapala as they take it and I don't expect any payment for it, although they do show above the place that they pay for paper.
