  1. Rony do you know if they are doing drivers licenses in Chapala this week? I have checked the government of Chapala sites and don't see anything. Where did you fine the notice that they were coming last month?


  2. I finally got to order what I wanted. Amazon MX didn't carry it so I had to order from Amazon US. It cost under $6 but will end up costing $50. What a procedure. First I had to find a supplier who would ship to Mexico. Then to not have to pay for shipping I tried ordering a second thing that cost $25. But the $6 thing (which is all I really wanted) would have been an add on (added on to my next order!). So I finally found something for about $25 to which my $6 item would not be an add on and I ordered. The two things are being sent separately! so that the $25 one will have free shipping but the other will cost me $20 in shipping!!?? Nothing like this has ever happened when I ordered stuff sent to the US.
  3. That is how I found the item-using search. I put it in the cart but it says but I can't proceed unless I order something else at which point the thing I want is an add on. I am thinking I could also order a Mexican flag but I'm worried it would be stolen en route. Is that likely? I know that could well happen with the Mexican post.
  4. Thanks Al B. I was wondering if it might be something like that. Weird I want it regardless (and will pay) as is. Can you get around the add on business?
  5. I'm trying to order something from Amazon but it won't let me place the order. It keeps trying to add other things on to the order and then postponing what I really want. Is this because it is only worth $6 ?
  6. I had a trifocal lens installed by Dr. Rios over a year ago. Since I have never been able to read close up without glasses but long and medium distance are great. Rios insists I don't need glasses for reading but I certainly do need them. How could he be so wrong? He says if I get the second eye done everything will be fine. What? Are your eyes fine for reading?  

  7. Thanks pattya119 for mentioning your two guitars. I have no idea what kind of guitar I am looking for as I am clueless. I want to buy one for a young Mexican who I am mentoring as he would like to learn to play one. I am hoping that a store with a wide selection could lead me in the right direction. 

  8. What do you mean when you say you had security wires installed. Barbed wire? electric wires or?

    1. Earl


      Electric wires. I just typed out a whole message to you, but it said that Cedros could not receive messages. I guess this is private, so I shall respond.

      Do NOT use Marcelino Jimenez C.  He lives on Ocampo, on  east of Mannix, but I have forgotten the address.  

      He came for he final 4000 pesos saying thé work was finished. It was a mistake not to go over to the house I was going to move into to take a look.  He left the Handy Little roof over the pedestrian gate with only about 6 inches of wire above it.  4 days later, local youth··I´m pretty sure··easily got on the roof and stepped over the wire. It is now 9 days later, and there have been missed appointmnts and still no additional wires added.  He does not come when he says he will come and even said  the problema  was my lack of neighbors.  I told him that´s exactly why I wanted security and that he should not have taken my money if he knew that he was not providing security.  He also did  not install the longer·life battery as agreed and I still do not have my written guaratee, but that´s only as good as the person behind it anyway.   He is not a man of integrity.  I wish I could shout from the rooftops not to use him for anything.

      Thanks Earl.

  9. lobita I feel some relief reading your post. I had a cataract in one eye that Dr. Rios "fixed" by putting a trifocal lens in. Trifocal meant I would not need glasses for reading, medium, or long distance vision. Right away I could see that I still needed glasses for that eye for reading. Rios insisted that I did not need a glass for that eye. After a month of arguing and getting the wrong glasses several times I got glasses Now it is time for my yearly checkup. The glasses no longer work properly for that eye-I need a different prescription. How can my vision change when I have an artificial lens in there? I hesitate to return for this free yearly checkup as he will probably insist that my repaired eye is fine and that once I have the other eye done everything will be fine. I'm tempted to see that lady ophthalmologist (Claudia) in Chapala to see what she thinks. About 8 months ago I did go see the ophthalmologist (Dr. Vargas) who comes to the Ajijic clinic and he said everything looks fine but he doesn't use that trifocal. What to do?

  10. I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Rios with mixed results. Is this the same doctor?

  11. Are there two SOSE offices? I dealt with the one in Chapala and it was hopeless. I've heard that the one in Ajijic is better.
  12. I went to Rudy's store today. They don't sell the granite sealers and polishes. So what to use?
  13. Good stuff to know. Where are Chopo and Dilabim?
  14. Maybe they are no longer single. The last post there was in 2014 July.
  15. Does anyone have an answer to this?
  16. I don't think it shakes peoples beliefs or scares them at all. There are a number of who reject ignorance and irrationality and feel they have to speak out against it.
  17. What I said does not indicate that not all are reported in any way. That is your interpretation but not what I said. Better to stick to facts and get back on topic.
  18. How do you know "not all sightings are reported and some are not even talked about outside closed circles"? Of those reported virtually always they are identified or explained by someone somewhere.
  19. Reason. There probably aren't any Unidentified flying objects here or anywhere else as virtually always someone has identified or explained them. People that say they are unidentified just aren't aware that they have been identified.
  20. I wouldn't build a kidney shaped one. It is much easier to cut a solar blanket cut to fit one that is rectangular. You have to replace them every two years so don't make it too difficult.
  21. Go Solar one of directors on the board of the development I'm talking about told me that they were unhappy with the solar rings and they wanted a solid cover. So I'm not speaking for others but just reporting what the B of D is thinking.
