  1. I am told there is a store in Jocotepec that sells Echo leaf blowers, etc. Does anyone know about this store and where it's located? Thanks
  2. This is the new hospital in San Antonio?
  3. Glad that Volaris is still financially stable. We used to often fly them from Guadalajara to Chicago and LA, but have not for several years because of their now terrible web page for booking flights What was once a simple online flight booking procedure now just stinks. Have not flown them in about 3 years!
  4. Ajijic streets and sidewalks continue to be in a dismal state of disrepair
  5. I could not count the times i have seen a overloaded dump truck, 6 wheeler or semi with bald tires and broken tail lights etc. Many of these trucks could never pass a safety inspection in the states.
  6. A bit off topic but I have used Chopo several times and found their test results to be the easiest to read compared to other labs and always found them to be professional..
  7. Mostlylost, I believe you are correct I have seen that statue many times, must be more than one.
  8. I am aware of the paint pads pictured here but this was different it was a bigger pad with the handle right on the back of the pad.
  9. We have lived her for nine years and just recently saw a worker, not a painter using a square type pad to apply paint. I had heard about this tool years ago but didn't know it was still used. After the project was completed I would just say it would never be used on my casa, very poor coverage.
  10. Please tell me more about Dish. Thanks
  11. My wife saw two gringo women enter oxxo without a mask and the staff would not serve them.
  12. We live in Vista Alegre and Simapa runs water to our community every other night starting at 7pm to our alhibe's. We recently developed a leak that is getting worse and shows itself at the base of our 9 ft. retaining wall down by the street but behind the curb and on our property. The water seems to be coming from behind the retaining wall on our property but we show no moisture or water in our back yard that is above 9 ft. above the street. We had a contractor dig behind the curb about one meter deep but found no pipe etc. We have just had our irrigation system checked for leaks with two contractors and all the irrigation valves are working properly, yes we had them dug up. We have had the irrigation system turned off since Tuesday to help isolate the leak. We just had a new float and valve installed in our alhibe yesterday hoping this was the problem but when Simapa ran water Sat. at 7 pm the leak started once again. Our alhibe is north of our casa and at least 80 ft north of the retaining wall. Are there any contractors that may have expertise and testing equipment to help locate the leak. Yes we are worried about the integrity of the wall. Your advice, comments and suggestions would be more than welcome. Thanks, Bill
  13. The website looks great any comments about the store and synthetic Rattan would be appreciated. Thanks
  14. Rudy Rodolfo is what I would call a general contractor hear lakeside. In business for about 25 years. Rudy builds new houses, remodels, pools, complete kitchens, complete roof redue removing cement and roof tiles, tile work and much more. Rudy's crew has been with him for many years. Rudy is honest and has done extensive work at our casa along with several of our neighbors. Rudy will not give you the cheapest price but we would highly recommend him. cell # 333-4966-3187
  15. About 2 inches in Vista Alegre and my neighbors confirm.
  16. Arcos Angels, Zed is correct about asking you what specific work you need done. And I would not relay on the contractor's own references.
  17. Blue Rose Bistro Elegante Mom's Deli Adelita's These are open, not sure about the hours.
  18. The wife need to see a Podiatrist she is suffering from sharp pain on the ball of the foot behind the big toe. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  19. I bought a six pack of beer at Walmart yesterday, so yes the clerk was uninformed.
  20. Thanks for all your help. Would anyone want a pet squirrel?
  21. Thanks for your help. Not having a pet I don't know where the animal shelter is or what Ladron is.
  22. Gov. personal and police are still stopping all cars at a check point as of yesterday, checking for proof of residence on the Carretera out west around San Juan Cosala
  23. I am loosing my ongoing fight with some local squirrels digging in my potted plants and now they ate the insulation from the underside of my car hood. Just lucky they did not eat my wiring. Looking for someone who rents a live trap to remove the little SOB's. Thanks
  24. In the last 7,8 months we have seen several rentals sitting vacant because the owners were asking high rents. Several of these owners have since sold or still have the houses on the market. These were people who bought these properties as rental investments not realizing the rental market was becoming overpriced and it corrected.
  25. Looking for Koblenz Dry Foam Rug shampoo or other brand. I have never seen it at Walmart. I bought some at Liverpool years ago. Thanks
