  1. I had previously blocked him, and I took him back, but he is very strange... I would also like to go to this restaurant, the last time I had meatloaf like that was 60 years ago with my Polish Grandmother...

  3. Where did it go??? I guess that he did not like the answers...Hasta la Vista baby!!! I was disappointed since it seems like an interesting dish and I would like to give it a try. Anyone know the restaurant he was talking about, or was it just a bad dream???

  4. Lately, I've traveled from Guanajuato to Chapala several times. The app.sct.gob.mx site is way off. For instance, it shows the first toll here in Guanajuato to be 24 pesos, which it hasn't been for at least 6 years. Others similarly out of date. Tollsmart at least is closer to the real price. Plus, app.sct.gob.mx still uses Adobe flash player. Tells you all you need to know about their commitment to stay updated. Which is to say, they don't have one.

  5. Ever since they allege that my team hit three casinos in Europe and one in Macau, now I am Interpol top ten. They made documentary about my so called exploits. It is called "Oceans 11" . I thought George Clooney played an accurate role as their fearless and brilliant leader.

  10. Well I finally went today to Ocotlan for my emission test. I first registered and paid online. Your appointment can be no earlier then 7 days from the time you make it and pay the fee (500.00 Pesos). They the send your appointment and payment confirmation to your email. Beware, this is much more then an emission test. Your appointment confirmation list all the requirements. Motor fluids all have to be to the correct level, tires have to be in good condition and to the right pressure and the cooling system hoses have to be in good condition. They checked my car under the hood and then under the engine, they plug a diagnostic device to ensure all sensor where in working order and they rocked my car to make sure the suspension system was okay. Then and only then do they move your car ahead for the emission test. During this time you have to go to the waiting room. This took about 40 minutes. But then they had a glitch with the device which prints out you sticker, that took another 45 minutes. Almost forgot that they ask that your car is clean (I had about 1 cubic meter of golden retriever hair inside, I explained that they where magical fibers of joy and love😊). Good luck if you have an old car.

  12. I believe one can apply muriatic (hydrochloric) acid to create pitting. Observe the pitting sufficient to your purpose and then sprinkle baking soda to neutralize the acid. This is a very inexpensive way to make a ceramic type surface non-slip.

  13. I continue to see more obituaries being labeled unexpected than I ever have in my life. People are dying in mass, not only have I noticed it locally here in Mexico but also from people I know in the U.S. I can no longer comprehend, I have a hard time with the level of idiocracy in a public that defends everything in the name of their health and mainstream media. Mask mandates are being removed in many countries and now with several trucker strikes in several countries, this could be the beginning to the end of this whole vaccine fiasco, I think deaths will increase over the next year and we will see more people dying, here lakeside most of those will be well over the age of expected lifespan so most of the deaths will be chalked up to old age.

  14. Why did I ask such a simple question? I am looking for a paint on epoxy like Sparkle Tuff Anti slip. It does not seem to be available through Amazon or HD I did not mean to start an arguement. You guys need to get out more.

  16. I had the same experience. I was told you get it stamped and hand it in at the city you are leaving the country from.

  17. The board should then also have individual separate threads & headings for all things of info and interest at lakeside, like a "Wall building" thread, a "mechanics reco" thread, an "aljibe cleaning" thread, and a "fiber optic & communication" thread and about 99 others. Mod 2 did not like the Covid chatter, apparently, intruding on his daily grind.

  18. Sorry, I thought I already posted this. If it was me I would buy some 4 foot wide galvanized expanded metal lath, 1/4 to 1/2 size. The good stuff has ribs, but I doubt that you will find here, other than roll Fasten to your intended walkway, use hardened steel concrete nails to secure the mesh to the tiles, using the grout lines. Wear gloves when handling lath. You do not want to make them too tight. You might also think about expansion joints at this stage. A special wood or more expensive plastic/rubber waterstops. If the concrete shifts it will split at these joints - much easier to fix. If you have clayish soil, these expansion joints should be about every six to 8 feet. Now the concrete. Standard cement mixed with coarse and fine sand, then lots ot pea gravel. Add some acrylic resin concrete fluid, to make it stick better and much stronger. You can make the admixture stiff and trowelable (strongest) or runny, self level which will will require some used motor oil covered boards to keep the concrete in place while it sets. cover with black plastic for one week, or sprinkle water everyday for a week. This might be as thin as 1 inch to be very strong and relatively lightweight. As the cement wears away, you will be left the good grip of the sand and gravel. To remove, is much easier than slabs or old tiles. Sounds like a lot of work. It is not. Have fun with it! Get creative, shells, broken ceramic shards, pretty stones all embedded before it sets.
