  1. Thanks CG and Hensley I am interested. Took the lawnmower to the repair place. The motor has seized up as the gardener was running it without any oil. I could kill him. He is an experienced gardener and I've shown him many times where the oil is and when to top it up.
  2. It looks like the lawnmower that came with my house won't last much longer. I haven't found any seller in the area who can explain different features of machines (language is a problem). It has been 30 years since I bought a lawnmower. What are some things to look for? It has to be a gas machine without a bag. I'm not sure whether to get power to the wheels or not. I have a large, fairly steep yard. Why do some of the machines have large rear wheels? It has to be sturdy as it goes up and down 2 sets of stairs.
  3. Does anyone know where you can buy eggnog Lakeside? I'm not up to making it this year. (I wasn't sure how to spell it so I looked in my dictionary and it said rompopo but I'm sure it is rompope locally)
  4. I can't find their card. I will get it for you tomorrow.
  5. When I put in sod a few years ago the contractor bought it from Santa Anita (South west of Guadalajara). It you drive from Jocotepec to Guadalajara you will pass their sign advertising sod.
  6. If the surrounding soil has a lot of clay the water from the septic or holding tank won't drain away properly. Do you put paper down your toilets? Some of the septic systems are pretty rudimentary and need to be modified. You may need an "expert" analysis.
  7. Earlier this year when I renewed in Jocotepec I didn't have to go to Guadalajara-my facillator did.
  8. I agree a special settings is very important. That only leaves two restaurants.
  9. The jamaica that is made into a drink is quite different than the hibiscus you have in the gardens.
  10. Walmart has the best selection of Xmas cards. There is a display stand around the corner from the paper section. The papeleria at the corner of Juarez and Hidalgo in Ajijic has the second best. I think both places have those little bags.
  11. Before I spay with anything I would examine the leaves carefully a number times-day and night to look for the culprit. It could be leaf cutting ants, caterpillars, or?
  12. I've used 880 numbers a few times before this year and was never charged (in previous years I was charged). I thought it was part of their new plan to make long distance free. It was until now for me.
  13. For a long time my bill from Telmex has been $599 per month. Suddenly this month it is $779. There is $150 charge for LADA 800/880. It has been quite some time since I have been charged for LADA. Has anyone else had the same happen?
  14. I thought it was time to try this place out. It was closed with no sign saying what days or hours it was open. Google was no help-one listing just said closed. Does anyone know what days, hours they are open?
  15. They are installed anywhere that is suitable. Usually outside the house somewhere.
  16. If you use the links provided by geeser and johanson they still give a 401 error for me.
  17. Do you know the name of this artificial sap and where you can buy it?
  18. I don't know this place or Farmacia Similare. Is it east or west of Colon?
