  1. If only there weren't so many of them
  2. This is the link to John Pint's website. There are a lot of very interesting articles which your Grandson may find of interest. http://www.ranchopint.com/ Sorry it took so long but I just got my laptop back.
  3. I can also add to this information now.... I only had to pass by 5 times before I found it They have added a Ferreteria right beside their Herreria and the grand opening is today at 1 p.m. So, when you see that "Ferreteria" sign on the lakeside just past Mirasol, you know you're in the right place. That tiny obscure little sign for the Herreria just doesn't cut it and I told them that. He said nearly all their work came by word of mouth. That's impressive. Further for your info is Noe's cell number 333-969-6924 I look forward to doing business with them next week. Thanks for directing me to them.
  4. Mine's a Maytag and it has the ability to swing from either side. Unfortunately it came with the house so I can't tell you where it came from. I would also suggest Tio Sam's if all other places fail. You may also want to check out which way the washer (front load) and dryer doors swing too. It used to drive me nuts that the dryer door was in my way when I wanted to load it from a top load washing machine. I am in heaven now because I have a whirlpool and the dryer door opens down. It makes it a breeze to both load and unload the dryer. Happy hunting!
  5. Didn't learn anything eh? BTW, I don't need validation from you or anyone else but I will correct outdated and erroneous information. And I've had a wonderful, happy and fulfilling life so far. The fact of the matter is that the OP asked for information not a lecture. The "enabler" comment was unjustified and spiteful. Fire away.
  6. Sorry for getting on my high horse. If somebody asks for information on where to get a good hamburger with great fries is that considered enabling for a cholesterol/triglyceride fix? From February 7th of this year, an excellent article by CNN showing the evolution of thought behind e-cigs... http://edition.cnn.com/2015/12/31/health/where-we-stand-now-e-cigarettes/ For the record, I do not advocate young people using them but, I have a sneaking suspicion that most people reading this forum are over the age of 50. Cigs or e-cigs can cause damage to SOME people but we are all genetically unique and handle things in different ways. Here is a list of links about the PROS of Nicotine alone without all the nasty stuff in tobacco cigarettes. "So here's the whole list explaining it again...

  7. When I have the time, I will post innumerable links to show the opposite and, in fact, that nicotine all by itself is quite interesting to the medical community as a Medicine. I actually didn't find either of the replies to Gringal nasty at all. YMMV... and Gringal is a good friend.
  8. You may want to brush up on that info Gringal. They are not worse than the real thing and there are studies to back that up. Yes, Dildoria has a e-cigs but, as far as I know, they don't sell any e-liquid with nicotine in it. I would love for that info to be incorrect now if your friend could ask.
  9. Thanks. I'll take a drive tomorrow and try and find it.
  10. Is Salazar's the iron works that's beside the new seafood restaurant?
  11. This entire thread has some really excellent feedback for you. Lots of thought has gone into all the posts. I have a small one bedroom/one bathroom house all on one level and it has TWO interior patios (with drains) and a front courtyard with a full covered porch facing east. I have a LOT of windows but none on the north side or the west side. It took me exactly 15 minutes after seeing it to put an offer in. Some things just feel right. I love this little house and intend to leave it feet first. All things are possible in Mexico.
  12. Tough question to answer as it totally depends on your style. I like character in my home. So I have niches and wrought iron rectangular grilled windows. I am not a fan of really high ceilings because, for the couple of months that it is cool at night makes it very hard to heat. I face east but have no windows at all on the north side and am grateful because the sun blasts the north side all summer long. And, as stated above, cross ventilation and good fans are a must. You can always renovate but as a friend stated "brick dust travels further than you would expect". Make sure you like the floor because it will be nasty to replace the tile. If your house is not grounded, it's not that big a deal to ground it...been there done that. Storage can be created. And DO take that marble with you and check both the terraces and the roof to make sure, not only that the rain drains away from the house, but that it also drains towards your exit pipes (gutters in the U.S. or eaves troughs in Canada) It's a journey... old Scottish saying "when your house is finished, the hearse is at the door"
  13. Dimensions?
  14. The laundromat in the shopping centre above the Lagnuna Mall also has a supersize machine... the one where Tio Sams is
