    Fred you've certainly demonstrated to all your profound commitment  to " .... for better and for worse.... "    Because I've recently been a little more connected with you than some, in my heart I can answer "no, you didn't wait too long". 

    She's always made it clear she wants to die at home, with you holding her hand. At least having your daughter there will allow sharing of your heavy burden.  You've all suffered long enough. May she pass quickly and in peace.  🙏

    Amen. May we all.

    My info is not super-current, but our experience with on-demand hot waters heaters ( 2 -- one after the other, both very close to kitchen sink which is all they served) was HORRIBLE.   Nobody could pay me to have one.... updated versions or not. (Lower Chula Vista)

    Mine also. The heater when I moved in was nada so I bought a Cinsa on demand. No hot water half the time and ate batteries. We tried making it better to no avail. My sister was having the same issues down the road and replacement was a Kalotron with a small tank. I was so impressed I bought one. It is great. Easy to maintain and I did not notice a big jump in gas consumption. It is pilot light controlled and has a small tank which is fired when water flows pressurized or not. It is reliable and will keep up a full blast hot for 15-20 minutes. (really full blast)

    Mercado Libre is your friend to buy one.

  3. Thankfully, there is a lot of different research being done on energy-battery storage, from enormous batteries made from plastic to the use of a variety of microorganisms which store and even create energy. There may be a future with homes made from plastic which are the storage devices, supplemented by microbial consortia - roofs made of solar panels with small wind turbines along the peak and small water turbines in the downspout.

    Innovations in cars will follow, we hope. Jets; I dunno.

    Again don't answer the questions. Point at other things.  You tried very badly of giving all the GW leaders ignoring everything they tell us to do.  But yes they are way above us pleebs who do zoom meetings.  Same with all the house that will be underwater if what they say is true. Nothing the rest of the world can do if your right with China and India producing half of the world's carbon. Why don't they go to China and glue themselves to a road. Please live feed because it will be pure comedy to watch what China will do to them. But please keep avoiding the questions about your leaders and China and India. It helps non believers like me convert more over. I the USA climate isn't even in the top 20 worries of voters. GW is done some just can't let it go

    So reading not your strong suit - okay.

    Bigger question is when all the believer's going to China and India to tell them to cut there co2. I will wait... Lol

    LOL? I'm not tied up at all in all that propagandized political BS. People who are duped talk about things like; show me the rising oceans; whatabout the oceanside estates?; whatabout Greta? Bla bla.

    This instead of observing changes in wildlife due to temperature changes, long record heat waves, results of deforestation, etc. 

    PS. I'll bet NEWMtnmama does not have any great leaders

    Yes someone got political and was getting owned with facts quick lock it lol

    For sure! It wasn't really that hot. Of course the jets are huge contributors, maybe even the biggest but are those jetting back and forth to NOB and Mexico and elsewhere as much to blame?

  7. I've had 2 virtual colonoscopies - in Canada. It is a CT scan which reveals much more than a colonoscopy. It also shows up any organ lesions or abnormalities. At Chopo in GDL the cost is 3K pesos compared to 12K pesos for a colonoscopy lakeside. There is a large discount for paying online. This is 2023, not 1968.

  8. The only reason I know the property is through almost acquiring it. The assertion that they need a large covered dining and recreation area is genuine, along with more sleeping area. The accommodations would be cramped with 18 to 25 boys. There is a main apartment with one bedroom, kitchen and largish living/dining area; attached on the outside is a laundry room, there is a storage and solar battery area about 10x10 or 12 ft, then entrance to covered parking, then 2 other smaller apartments; I'm pretty sure each with a bathroom. The whole place had good plumbing as well as waterlines to water plants and animals. On the roof were 16 solar panels and gas tank. 

  9. Please correct me if I'm incorrect but is this not the group which recently got the property and house north of Santa Cruz? If so this is a lovely property of around 1800 sq m with a well installed solar system, large propane tank, kitchen and kitchenette, laundry room, 2 or 3 bathrooms with showers; water service with several tinacos.

    They may have needs like new appliances but some of what is reported sounds exaggerated.

    I have searched this site and can't find the website information for scheduling an appointment to transfer title.  Help!

    Also, does anyone know how they determine value of used car for sales tax?  I know it isn't based on the price you actually pay for the used car.  TIA

    When registering a built trailer, I tried repeatedly to make the appointment online. It just did not work (for me) so had to go to Chapala, make the appointment and return 2 weeks later to do the registration.

  11. I have been trying to make the annual vehicle payments through the Jalisco adeudos webpage   https://gobiernoenlinea1.jalisco.gob.mx/serviciosVehiculares/adeudos?  My problem is discovering what they are requesting with 'engine number' 'numero motor'  I have entered the VIN/serial number and I'm at a loss for what they mean. It is especially puzzling regarding this requirement for my utility trailer, which obviously has no motor. Can anyone who has successfully accomplished this please shed some light as to what/where the engine number is?
