    Pancho's Grand soft Opening

    Thanks Pete for the update. Really happy to hear your report and I also may never leave Riberas. Everything close and everything easy.

    Potholes riberas

    Sort of related...I actually did receive this e-mail months ago... about using potholes to slow down speeders. Make sure you scroll down and see all the photos. All I can say is that it's definitely working here but our potholes are real. https://www.truthorfiction.com/canadian-potholes/

    LOL! They may even turn into sinkholes and you'll be carried away to marvelous new undiscovered worlds.

    Grout sealing

    Been there, done that. It is tedious and very time consuming. And that's why I wanted the grout sealer all through the grout this time.

    Grout sealing

    They can add a sealer to the grout when preparing it. I asked for it and they got it and I watched them add it to the mix... a liquid in 1 litre bottles. I spoke specifically to Jurgen at JP Home Services about this when my bathroom tiling was being done. But, I don't know where to buy it or the brand. He may give you the information. 331-841-4159

    Telmex Arcadyan Modem questions

    I hope that it continues to work for you. You probably were given a USED modem by the Telmex office here. That's why he didn't leave the box...
  8. From personal experience? It happened to both my husband and myself ... we BOTH had valid Nayarit licenses and were told we had to take the driving test to get Jalisco licenses. Of course, that was OUR experience at the CHAPALA licensing office in 2014. If YOUR recent experience was different then it is a step in a better direction.
  9. Only in Jalisco do you have to take a driving test for a Mexican License when you have a valid driving license from NOB. And only in Jalisco do you have to take a driving test when you have a Mexican License from another state. They are a law unto themselves.

    Turkey Day

    You can say that again, Harry, LOUDER! Just got home after having the best Turkey dinner in Mexico in 22 years. No, it wasn't a buffet today but it was divine! Buffet will happen for both American Thanksgiving and Christmas. In addition to Turkey, they will have Prime Rib for Thanskgiving and Roast Pork for Christmas. Great service too!
  12. Me being one of them. These heaters need maintenance just like others. I have already changed the batteries which is always the first thing to do. Interestingly enough, I can now hear my small igoto pump working again and now have on demand hot water again. I think it may have "drowned" in the last big rain. It's under my tinaco but I think I need to protect it from driving sideways rain. I would still like to know the name of a knowledgeable repair person though.

    Plants for Large Arbor?

    The problem with any vine growing over a larger structure is that it looks beautiful on the outside and not so great on the inside or underneath it where you will be sitting. A lack of sunlight being the main cause. A lot of dead foliage and shriveled flowers do not appeal to me. YMMV.

    Plants for Large Arbor?

    Is there a particular cultivar of Jasmine you had in mind More Liana? I have a Jasmine bush and it stinks.
