    G Mail

    I use Mailbird. It syncs with gmail but one does not get these updates all the time. Free for one email account, otherwise about 40.00 for a lifetime purchase. Very easy to set up
  2. Fro a Kitchen capers article some time ago "Previously, American markets had been supplied with Mexican-made versions of the clay pot. The easiest way to tell the difference between German Romertopf and the Mexican-made version is by checking the bottom pot. German-made Romertopf has always been made with a glass-glazed interior, while the Mexican pots are not. But Mexico's production stopped several years ago, and now all Romertopf is produced in Germany." Good article https://www.kitchenkapers.com/pages/focus-on-the-romertopf-roaster
  3. I hear that some Canadian Banks are getting on the bandwagon and sending "get to know your client questionnaires" My wife got a letter some time ago and the bank was quite anal about getting their questions answered.

    Sliding door lock replacement

    Have you tried a little 3 in 1 oil. I use it on all my locks 2x a year. It is available at Walmart, Soriana and most hardware stores. BTW Heriberto is the best locksmith Lakeside.

    printer problem

    Try searching hp.com for an updated driver. Sounds like your computer may be using a windows generic driver.

    Southern Sisters Restaurant

    After all the "slams" and a few"mine was good" my wife did not feel like going out so I decided to try out Southern Sisters yesterday late afternoon. My welcome was great, I have known the head waiter for several years at a variety of restaurants and my menu and drink arrived promptly. My chicken fried steak arrived in a reasonable length of time. All in all, for a new restaurant, I felt it was a pretty good effort and I have been known to slam the odd eatery for any variety of reasons. The grilled shrimp, fries and salad that I took home for my wife were, she said, also good. (she ate the whole thing). They will fill a niche here Lakeside, one gets tired of the same old, same old and wants a little variety now and then.

    iLox @ LCS?

    They asked for "pledges" and "expressions of interest". I think at one point they were added together to come to 400. An expression of interest is exactly that it is not a pledge and I was one of those expressing interest. I did not and have not made a pledge. I am following through but at the expression of interest level. I am still not sure that I need that level of internet speed especially as I now get 10mbps and Telmex are offering me 30mbps for another 100 pesos per month

    Tom: They have to be paid for in the first place. If the cost is per house to lay the conduits then of course there would be no additional cost per house after the conduits have been laid. The conduit installation cost has already been paid

    The cost per house is substantial for a condo with u/ground lines. It can more than double your first year cost.
