  1. Yoou can also fill them with rice instead of sand. Less likely to seep out of the seams.
  2. ILOX has been installed in our house for two weeks now. Here are a few observations. Internet access randomly drops out for short periods; usually only 30 to 90 seconds. I can't comment on the frequency as we use it only an hour or two a day. When this occurs most devices will automatically switch to a different service if one is available. You can prevent this by shutting down your old telmex system or telling your devices to "forget" the SSIDs. ILOX blocks some streaming services; specifically Area-51. We have overcome that through the use of what we consider to be a good VPN, Nord. We will post more if we learn more.
  3. Mario's is on Ramon corona, the street that is in front of the Catholic church running east and west. He is west of the church
  4. Mario's in San Antonio is now serving dinner. He is open until 10 pm on Sat and Sun. Practically down the street from the Spotlight
  5. IMO, the judges on the day we were there must not have like spicy food.
  6. We flew in with Volaris and out with Singapore in May. Both used the International terminal. We still had to clear customs and immigration. There was no cost incurred, just time.
  7. I have been using Overdrive and my library card from NOB to access e books on my Android tablet. My library card has expired and I no longer have someone who can go and renew it. They require it be done in person. What other options are there out there? I have checked into Kindle books but there are 5 publishing houses that will not provide content to Kindle. Is there anything like Netflix for books? I don't mind paying a nominal subscription fee for unlimited content. BTW, I am looking for books, not audio books. TIA for you answers.
  8. Where did you get your info that Tom Brady terminal is sterile? We have flown into it and back out at least once a year. Always required to clear customs and immigration before proceeding to recheck. It may be different if you are not changing airlines.
  9. I just walked by the station in Ajijic. There are cars parked but the pumps are roped off. Last evening they had a long line waiting.
  10. Try the local product instead. Vel Delicada in a pink bottle.
  11. I was able to download mine today. However, when they sent the email that the bill was ready last Monday, I couldn't. You may need to wait a day or more.

    What are their hours? Every time we drive past, they are closed.
  13. We use our USSA credit cards when shopping on Amazon MX. They have their own delivery system and do not use DHL. They deliver to our door usually within 2 days using Amazon Prime. It all depends on if it is an import item. As stated above, they will give you an estimated delivery date when you are ordering.
  14. We've used Liverpool at the Gallerias mall
  15. We had a hankering for tempura last week and set out for Ricki's. The doors were closed around 1230 on Friday and the signage has been taken down. Have they moved or are they gone?
  16. I have found them at the China junk store on the plaza in Ajijic
  17. For the cardiologist Dr Hector Briseno try qcdoctors.org email is drbriseno at gmail tel for the office is 376 766 1870
  18. I did this a year ago. When they came to Chapala, the test was in Spanish and everyone was required to do a parallel parking test. When I went to Guadalajara with Luzma, the test was in poorly google translated English. It involved identifying the meaning of traffic signs. There was no driving test required if you could show a driving license from anywhere. (One person's was expired and that didn't matter). I don't remember what the cost was but Luzma was able to get the cost I paid in Chapala discounted because I was over 60.
  19. We use Sprayway glass cleaner. It comes in a blue and white metal can and is available at Walmart. Made in the USA so it is pricey.
  20. We need to replace a couple of skylight domes. Does anyone source them locally? Thanks
  21. Do you know if they will still be doing recharges? We are using ours more with the new macrolibiermento.
  22. I have several of the 1 kg yogurt tubs with lids if they will help
