    We live right on the lake but have been gone for the last 4 1/2 months. We expected to come home to floating islands of lirio like last year but it is very “scant” so far and it seems to be entirely water lettuce and no water hyacinth:/ Anyone else notice this or know why?

    The lake level is almost a meter lower than this time last year. Probably less water is coming in from the Lerma river (where much of the plant material comes from) so far. I was hiking above Piedra Barrenada this morning and you could see large patches of Lirio/water lettuce. The amount of each plant in a specific area can depend on the lake level and wind direction.

    I guess the real question is, how many different varieties of "lirio" float on Lake Chapala and how many have the classic purple flower?

    That is the real question different species get mixed together and it is confusing and the plants can have different vegetative and flowering phases

    I'm sure I'm not the first to experience this--I need to sign the Closing docs and Deed on our Mexican home, but I am not there. I'm stuck in the US with health issues, my own and other family members.

    Is it true I MUST physically return to Mexico to sign the papers? I was told I can have a Mexican Power of Attorney (giving PoA to my spouse, who is still in Mexico) done by a notario, but there aren't any notarios in the US. 

    My husband does not want to FedEx the papers to me, in case they get lost or I make a mistake in signing.

    I was thinking I could do an "e-sign", but not sure if that holds for Mexico. I do know when I sold my US home I e-signed everything from Mexico.

    Thanks for any info or suggestions.

    There are many notaries in  the US. I have had Canadian documents notarized by Mexican notaries. I am sure there is are ways to have a Mexican document notarized by a US notary.

    I will ask about FIEL at my bank tomorrow. Odd that it has never come up before. 

    My bank saying that asking me for a FIEL was a mistake as that is for wire transfers and mine was a "global" transfer.

    So why not start your own poll? No poll is perfect. Is a NY Times, Fox News or CNN poll perfect? At least Best of Lake Chapala is trying...what are the other alternatives here? And are not all poll takers in"a business out to make money" ? 

    Why clutter up things.
