    I am interested in community service projects and enjoy computing, gardening, my pets, and learning more about Mexico.
  1. Just wondering if an editor can change a user's name. My husband created our log-in years ago. Now, I'd like to change the name on the account. I can change other profile parts, but not the user name. Understand why, but wondering if it's possible or if I need to start a new account. Carol
  2. I'd usually put this in the charity section, but it's really more than that. Operation Feed wants to thank everyone who has helped with this summer's projects. The optometrists, volunteers, drivers, stores like Mia's Consignment, new volunteers, and more. We really appreciate the donated computers and tablets. Having 5 of these means that the kids have a fighting chance to improve skills and learn about technology. The village of San Juan Cosala has so many needs and does not have the population base of Ajijic and Chapala. Our children, especially, can't believe that so many people care about them. It really shows the depth of kindness and caring that is here at Lakeside. Thank you all. Here's the latest news from Operation Feed
  3. Need part time gardener near Jocotepec

    I love mine. Might be able to get to you. He is in San Juan Cosala. Contact me.
  4. Thank so for the info. I've tried the plastic bags with coins... basil...and other herbs. The flies are the little ones, so I may hang the ugly strips to survive this period. I'll about the zappers, too, just so I can try everything. About spraying, I have animals and the flies like the kitchen, so unsure how I could use it. I bought two types but can't figure out a safe spraying area that would help.
  5. To save me time tomorrow, does anyone know where I would find the electric fly swatters? They look like a small tennis racquet. I really need something to help me decrease the flies and I'm told these work. Hoping not to have to spend hours hunting for one. ThankS Carol
  6. Bank issues

    I have chips and was told that I didn't need to let the bank know when I was in Mexico. Then it did t work one day, so I called. And was told I did have to tell them. Now all is fine until December, when I have to say I am still here.
  7. Walmart

    I also haven't had problems getting my food packed correctly. Once I thought I was missing something, but it had rolled under the car seat.
  8. furniture donation

    Casi Nuevo, supports children with special education needs, will,pick up. They are located in Riberas across from the 7-11. Info on their website...http://www.schoolforspecialchildren.org/casi-nuevo.html Donations are really appreciated by the children and staff. Carol
  9. What's the best time?

    Go get a new modem. Mine was doing just that. New modem... no problems. I think, and so does TelMex, that somehow the neighbor kids were using mine ... sitting outside on curb with phones...playing games... once I got a new modem... no more kids and speed is great. carol
  10. Roku

    I get Mexican Netflix in the internet, wifi, to my tv. I use USTvNow the same way I'm trying out a service that uses a Roku and gives me CNN and some channels that aren't on USTvNow. The paid version. The Lakeside service provider sold me the Roku. His contact information is: ephraim.gaertner@gmail.com Phone: 333-458-1903 or 376-765-2630
  11. June 10-17 in Ajijic

    Thanks for the SJC info. Live there, but somehow I always think it starts on the 16th. We just finished our barrio's very small fiesta which had the nightly and early cohetes... but not too bad.
  12. June 10-17 in Ajijic

    Those two come up as top 5. They are on my list to check out tomorrow. Just don't want to put them in Ajijic if there are fireworks every 6 hours and lots of music noise until wee hours.
  13. My son and daughter-in-law are coming to town from 10th thu 17th of June. Is that the week's a fiesta in Ajijic? Trying to book them onto a nice hotel without too much noise... just wondering if it's a big celebration week. Can't find anything on events calendar. And if you want to suggest a hotel, please do so. Thought the Monte Coxala would be great ... near us... but reviews are not good. carol
  14. Lakeside Stream

    I haven't and don't know how to do it. I'll search to see if there is a way. I have turned everything off and restarted the modem. No improvement.
  15. Lakeside Stream

    Just checking with those using Roku Lakeside Stream. Is anyone having buffering problems besides me? Worked great for two weeks and now I have long and short buffering stops on live tv. Done what has been suggested, but on day four of problem. My speed is great... above 7 every time I check. Carol
