  1. Anyone know where I can get real vanilla in the bottle. Last minute gift!
  2. I'm finally grounded after 10 days of loud music torture here in Chapala. Expo has ended and the 8-12 hours of music from 4pm til 4am or thereabouts is over. This is the same technique the CIA uses to drive people crazy like Panamas Noriega or Wacos David Koresh! Entertainment for 100 or so people that disturbs and denies a decent night sleep to thousands. The noise sweeps over the entire Plaza de Toros Barrio and up the hills. Two or three tuba bands, then a headliner that comes on 11pm or later, usually later. Noise til 2 or 3 AM, then a few drunks left in the stands to mouth off or some kid practicing being a disc jockey. It's torture. Doesn't the neighbors of the Chapala bull ring do enough for the community? We host the Monday Tianguis for petes sake! Thrn too Chapala hosts endless weekend tourist activities, we are here for your holidays too. And yet for the diversion of a few the many are denied sleep or comfortable use of their homes!...? How much productivity is lost to nights of just a few hours sleep.? Its not just the gringo who is upset, my Mexican neighbors have had enough too. And I know those who live by the Park Christiana feel the same; thousands tortured for the diversion of a small number of out of towners who come so late to the events no local merchants prosper. Who really profits? An out of town promoters takes control of the lives of large segments of the local population, tortures them for his profit. Why do we put up with that? I know Ajijic suffers from the same problems. Somehow we have to push back against the forces that would turn all of Lakeside into some destination tourist zone with complete contempt for those who are residents here. Can something be done to regulate or need this torture!? Can we at least stop all activity at midnight!? Limit the number of continous days? Set limits on music volume.!? Lakeside is first and foremost residential, economically and culturally so let's respect the people who live here!
  3. Ok just a few days til the May 5 deadline....but where's the office.?

  5. I've got an onion bag 3/4 full, make me an offer...im in chapala. PM me.
  6. Corded and price reduced to twenty dollars.
  7. OK thanks, will contact him.
  8. Thanks for the input, the receding lake levels and dock issues preclude I think this kind of service unless it was hovercraft. But aren'the they terribly noisy?
  9. That image is an oil on wood painting called Chapala Boats that I've recently completed here in Chapala, which I was showing since there was some question about my skill set or experience. There are more images at billyking.com including mural images. Here's a picture of my studio in Chapala. I'm not getting any actual paint donations and time is running out for this season. Any suggestions?
  10. Painted white, thick metal cage with lockable gate, this is custom made to fit over your CFE meter. Screw holes for attaching to your exterior wall. $25.00 Image won't upload pm me if interested, will send pik by email.
  11. Come and get it, used but not to muchy. $30. FILE WON'T UPLOAD SO NO PICTURE. Pm me and I'll send image.
  12. Has there ever been a water Taxi service between chapala and Ajijic? Would it make economic sense to have such a service? Pier to Pier service would certainly take the increased hassle of going from one to the other.
  13. Thanks everyone. We've created a great reference thread on this issue. Through vigorous plunging I got the line free, yes there was blockage. To celebrate I bought one of those blue disks to "clean" the toilet bowl with each flush.
  14. Here is a work sample. Just about everything to shoot is on a hollow core door @ 3ft x 7ft.......
  15. Hotels can that smell. I cover the drains and voila, odor gone!
