  2. quarter inch wood dowels

    I`ve never seen them in hardware stores lakeside, have you? Real Ortega Madereria has 1/2", 3/4", some wider but never less that I`ve seen.

  4. Lead free spray paint

    Interesting thing I read about paint, which seems counterintuitive. Those people who are highly allergic to almost everything have to live in homes where the wall paint is oil-based. Even thought those paints have intense fumes when wet, when they dry, they become inert, whereas acrylic/latex paints continue to gas off forever.

    I live near PV, so that's the one I saw them in, not in Guad. Kept in the section with the wood trims and stuff.

    You may be able to buy 1/4 rods from any of the local hardware stores. Then cut to length as needed.

    They told me no, but you are the better researcher!
  8. Here is this week’s lineup: Young adults on leashes Bobby Sox is about a year old, small/medium sized and, as his name implies, has lovely white socks on his paws. He is purebred MSD (Mexican Street Dog) black and white variety probably mixed with a bit of Labrador Retriever. His owner dumped him on the street but he was clearly not street smart. A nice lady fed him and when she couldn’t find his owners, brought him to the Ranch. Bobby is a sweet gentle little guy just lookiin’ for love. Jazzy is a 5 month old, dark brindle girl with a soft, plushy coat who just oozes charm. Her front half is mostly brindle while the back half is mostly black. Very unusual markings. Her brother Rocky has found his home but Jazzy is still looking. We expect her to be medium sized but stay a lap dog at heart. Wynona was rescued with 3 other siblings who have al been adopted. At about 5 months old, we expect her to be on the small side of medium. She is loving, lively and playful but not hyper. Mama-dog and the other pups looked more terrier but Wynona looks more hound with a stunning brindle pattern that you can’t appreciate in a photo. Lia is a 10 month old purebred MSD (Mexican Street Dog) tan and white variety. She is a sweetheart with pretty markings. Lia has lots off energy and is going to be a big girl when she is grown up. Need a hiking partner? Lia would like to apply for the job. Puppies in the pen Montana and Louisiana are part of a litter of 4 puppies found abandoned in a vacant lot. They are about 3 months old, purebred MSD (Mexican Street Dog) black and white variety. Montana has long hair and Louisiana has short hair with a tail light. Izzy was rescued from a trash bin, but we thing the person who did this is basura, not Izzy. She is a lovely 4 month-old reddish Labrador Retriever mix. We have PUPPIES – 15 new puppies in two different litters. We are calling one litter the Panda Pups cause they’re black and white and the other litter the Black & Tan Crew because they are , well, black and tan. Two pups from each litter will be in the puppy pen. All our Ranch dogs are neutered, current on their 6 way shots and rabies. Puppies have had some shots and been wormed, but most are not yet altered. We will pay for altering when they are old enough. There is no charge for adoption, but donations are gratefully accepted. For photos and pictures of our other dogs please see our Webpage: http://www.lakesidespayandneutercenter.com/ranchdogs.html

    Thanks! Don't need to put the boys in the newly-painted cage til mid-Aug.Thanks so much for your help!
  12. I just wanted to give a big plug for Luzma Grande of Ajijic Concierge. I needed to get my license renewed and I absolutely hate driving in Guadalajara, especially when it's somewhere I've never been before. It was so easy! She told me what documents were needed, did several follow-up reminders before our scheduled date, and got us in and out of the facility in less than a half an hour. Her rates are very reasonable (for 2 of us, it was $700 pesos each) and she drove us there and back. Hubby is going to go for his license next week and he's also going to use her services. To contact Luzma: ajijicconcierge@gmail.com or 333 452 1670 (cell)/376 766 1562 (office at Ajijic Homes 4 Rent & A L Carte Concierge Services)

    All I have found is that you want a zero-VOC paint. Maybe a paint store can help you. I'll keep looking.
  14. quarter inch wood dowels

    Home Depot sells them.
  15. had success with internet boosters?

    Sea, what is your yearly fee for Speedify?
  16. Anyone know where to get quarter inch wood dowels? I assume these would be in Guad somewhere. Maybe on the wood dowel street? Or failing this, one of you clever carpenter types have an internet site to order them from? Thanks.

    Thanks, Tiny, but apparently Ecos is not available in Mexico, and not on ebay. Any other ideas?

  20. Cornmeal for Polenta

    Chillin, as far as I know, no sweet corn is imported from the USA. It's being grown now in the neighboring states of Guanajuato and Querétaro, and marketed in many parts of Mexico. Dent corn is otherwise known as 'field corn' and in Mexico is used predominately to make things like Doritos, as well as for forage (animal food). I work in the field of corn (as opposed to the corn field) and can tell you that USA dent corn is NOT used to make tortillas. The majority of this imported dent corn is, as you said, more than likely GMO corn. Most Mexican native (and non-GMO) corns are regional varieties. Another portion of Mexican-grown corn is grown in the state of Sinaloa, when that state's crop is still coming and and other states' crops are used up. All of these kinds of corn, grown in Mexico, are used to make what you call 'hominy' but what is in fact the nixtamalized corn used to make corn masa (dough) for tortillas, tamales, sopes, and other Mexican dishes. Beginning about three or four years ago, Mexico's courts have prohibited the introduction of GMO seed corn into the country. It's possible, though, that during the presidency of Felipe Calderón, some GMO corn was introduced prior to that ruling. http://mexicocooks.typepad.com/mexico_cooks/2017/01/popcorn-the-original-mexican-corn-who-knew-maíz-palomero-el-máiz-original-de-méxico-quién-sabía.html http://mexicocooks.typepad.com/mexico_cooks/2016/10/corn-an-ancient-gift-from-mexico-to-feed-the-world.html

    I have not tried these apps? Dozens, yes, and dozens of boxes. Have my own right here. But that makes me afraid of boxes, okay. Gee, and I forgot about Firesticks, Roku, Chromecast. Hey, thanks for reminding me. Oh, wait: have my own right here. I am denying customers? How? Are they not adults, perfectly capable of trying these things themselves? Since when did it become up to me? Why isn't it up to you? Once again you miss the point: I have said repeatedly these can all be great, and many people are using them. I am not stopping anybody. I'm just not going to charge them for a service, which will anger them when they discover its not perfect. I don't quite get your vitriol. And thanks, pappysmarket. One subject I didn't touch on is barcelonaman's own apparent consideration that the legality of it should not be part of the discussion.

    I'm not sure how these deviations from the original OP has any benefit, it just appears that a new topic needs to be started, and not hijack this one.

    You have more worries than just lead. "Does your bird cage need a new paint job? Not sure what kind of paint to buy? Using conventional paints releases toxic VOCs that may pose health risks to your bird. " http://www.ecospaints.net/blog/2014/07/safely-painting-bird-cage-easier-think/ Bigger pet stores may have an idea. Check Mercado Libre.

    Is it available in Mexico? Need to paint my canaries' cage and can't expose them to lead. Thanks for any info.

    Haha, remember downloading and sharing music and the torrents and video? Where are they now? Why no longer is everybody using them? Is it because they were pirates and the content owners slowly but surely shut many of them down? Will the content owners be content to let android boxes continue to take their content for free? Are many of these boxes already being shut down by legal actions? Do your own due diligence and find your own answers and then go forth and take your chances with whatever method you choose. There's no "best answer" that fits everyone.
