    Art Supplies

    I use Novacolor paints which I buy from the distributor in the states. Hugh Roberts brings them down for me. He can be reached at zippmypackages.com. He pays all the duties at the border and you are obligated for that along with his fee. I try to wait to put in an order until I have a dozen or so jars. Gringal uses the same paints and we combine orders. Big stuff: No problem. Hugh brought down an 85 lb. easel for me last year.

    Tres CaƱadas development

    If I'm not mistaken, this project had a ground breaking (and a push for investors) on land up the road west of the Pemex a few years ago. Then another groundbreaking on land just east of Tres Canadas. Now it's moved to TC and we'll see what happens. Apparently Hernandez is backing it.

    Exterior security door

    I'd like to see somebody "kick" in a good steel security door. Maybe with a battering ram........ When we put ours in we were told that it would take heavy tools and a lot of time to get it open once locked. It was custom made for an outside entrance. What have we replaced it with? After deciding we had too many entrances, we have bricked up that hole and gained the interior space it took up when opened.

    The security door I just took out is still for sale. More information and pictures are on the Chapala.com classifieds listing.

    Heavy Metal Security Door and Frame

    Price reduced to $3,000 pesos.
  7. Doing a bit of remodeling and don't need this very heavy metal door. The measurements are 35 1/4 inches x 84 1/2 inches with the frame. The door itself is 32 inches x 81 inches. There are 24 panes of glass. A separate deadbolt has it's own key so even if a pane of glass is broken a thief cannot open the door. My contractor says the door alone, without the frame, latch and deadbolt, would cost over $5000 pesos. Smudges in the photos are concrete dust from the workers taking the door out. It has been in a sheltered area and has no rust or blemishes. Asking $4000 pesos. Phone 376-766-2521

    Electronics clean-out

    Benno's is not interested. Already asked.
  9. I don't know how it got this bad, but I now have cluttering up my space: 2 non-working printers, 1 sort-of working printer, 2 non-working Kindles, and a box of dead cameras. If I just put it out with the basura, will the guys sort through it and recycle? Is there a place to take stuff like this? Some time ago I remember seeing that some organization was taking dead electronics to use as teaching aids for kids to tear down and reassemble.
  10. We use the 3 1/2 gallon (approx.) size garfon because it's big enough to last but can still be lifted. Lately we've had major problems finding that size at our usual water sellers. We even stopped a water delivery truck and he didn't have any......just the 5 gallon size that we can't lift. Have they stopped making that size? Anyone else having a problem?

    Gwnne Lott painting show opens

    Just got the show hung and it looks great! Come by for refreshments at Studio 18 (Colon - 2 doors down from Bancomer) from 5 - 7.
  13. Expect to pay mucho for the Bosch service out of Guad. We were quoted $800 pesos for someone to just come and look at a heater that was a week old and (supposedly) under warranty.

    Keureig Coffee Maker

    After a day of searching, here's what we have found: Yes, Costco has a lovely Keurig machine and lots of pods....including a generic Kirkland brand pod for the Keurig machine. BUT....while we were looking, a nice young Mexican man walked by, looked at the price ($1,500.00) and said he should have waited because he paid $2,000.00 for the same machine last week. To me, that sounded like Costco was trying to get rid of them (and they would never be seen again). We went on to Liverpool (nada), Best Buy (nada) and Sears (nada). HUGE displays for the Nescafe machine. Result: We bought a Krups machine at Costco and I'll start searching for flavored creamers to fill my flavor-fix. I DID find an aluminum dish drainer that was on my wish list....so the trip was worthwhile.

    Keureig Coffee Maker

    Time for a new coffee maker and I LOVE flavored coffees. I'm not interested in the one they have at WalMart because you have to use THEIR pods. I want a Keurig because (if I understand correctly) if you run out of pods, you CAN use generic coffee. Now the problem is where to find one. Someone said there's a store in Guadalajara on Avenida La Paz that carries all things coffee. Has anyone been there? Do you know approximately WHERE on La Paz it is? Or......any other ideas of where to find a Keurig?
