  1. 2 Refrigerator Water Filters

    Hi Irishgal, I'm sorry I just now saw your query, but to answer your question: it's a One Purify refridgerator water filter for Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Jenn-Air, Maytag and Amana. The product number is RFC0900A. I hope that helps.
  2. 2 still-in-the-package replacement water filters for Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Jann-Air, Maytag or Amana by One Purify. Please check for compatibility but they worked well with our Amana. Reason for sale: the fridge didn't last as long as the filters! $265mxn Pls call 331-960-5885 (cell) or scrubbers1958@gmail.com
  3. Scam Caller back from vacation

    That's why it's so important to mention this as often as possible...to try and save the trusting/naïve from this piece of shit.
  4. Housesitters beware!!!

    TOTALLY agree with you, Kam. Someone is brave enough to tell us how they got scammed - to keep the rest of us from falling for it - and gets ridiculed. What some don't understand is that the robbers are getting more and more sophisticated in their approach and it can be very easy to get sucked in. I won't go back over what happened to hubby, but it was 50% luck/50% timing. When one falls, it just makes them that more determined to continue. If someone asks you for money, no matter how convincing, try to remember to ask a question that only the real person would know. I'm really sorry for what happened to you, Camille.
  5. La Antigua in Riberas

    You are so right, CG!
  6. La Antigua in Riberas

    I just tried the place today with a friend and was really impressed. Janet walked around and checked that the customers were happy (I sure was!) and the waiters were very attentive. Portions were good, quality was excellent and the menu selection was amazing. My friend and I sat there for quite a while and never once felt like we had outstayed our welcome. I'll definitely be back.
  7. Capital Gains Tax

    Again, thanks for the info, but I'm pretty familiar w/who pays what. The only question is CGT and the exemption and...oh, heck! I will update this once I speak w/the notario. I have the site that Pappysmarket recommend (thank you!) and it's giving me a very rough idea (heart is now off the floor), but I guess I could also flip a coin and have just as sure an answer. Gotta love living here!
  8. Capital Gains Tax

    Thanks for the answers. I've made an appointment with a local notario (this is for a house sale) to get a rough idea. My questions are just to stop my heart from hitting the floor. One other one: where do they get the valuation? From the actual buy/sell (when we bought to when we sold) or from the official predial valuation?
  9. Can anyone give me definitive answers to the questions below? I've read, re-read and am now going batty. Some sites say one thing, others say another. So...my questions: If you're a residente permanente, and have been so for over 3 years (4 in our case, but owned the property for 12) with a CURP, do you get the exemption? (Hmmm...what I'm trying to say is that we've lived here full time for 12 years, went permanent in 2013, and owned the property the entire time.) If not, how is the tax percentage determined? I've read it's anywhere from 1.92% to 35%--gulp! What type of taxes have most sellers experienced? I know I need to go talk to a notario, but any basic info/suggestions/etc would be appreciated. TIA.
  10. Internet Speed (again)

    Holy, Batcrap. I just tested ours and got 15.57 download. A SECOND milagro in Chapala Haciendas! http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/6382411651
  11. Hi Carolina, I carry around 4 (or more) or nearly every DMC color. If you know the number, please let me know and I'll be happy to give it to you. I had the same thing happen to me and someone also helped me out (and if I could remember her name, I'd sing her praises because it saved my project, too). It's frustrating to nearly finish a project and run out...that's why I have so much of the stuff now!
  12. Pillsbury Nostalgia

    Dang, I recently bought some there and now I'll never find them again since you just gave away the secret!
  13. Peppermint Foot Cream

    OK, I know I always pipe in with Jabonera's postings, but she really is amazing. I've bought a lot of her soaps and body creams and she recently made up an all-natural mix for a skin problem for hubby - with excellent results. If you enjoy using all-natural, quality products, please check her out.
  14. eBay and Amazon (NOB) orders

    I've used both and have had no problems. My packages usually arrive earlier than they estimate. Don't forget MercadoLibre, either...I've used them 5 times in the last couple of weeks and was really, really pleased with the experiences.
