  1. I wonder what is the advantage to having a BBVA account as. I only have one bill a month to pay-Tecel and that is paid automatically with one of my credit cards. I live in Jocotepec and get cash from the HSBC ATMs in San Antonio from my Canadian account. I don't pay any ATM feee. It is much more convenient to get to the HSBC ATMs versus BBVA as I rarely walk around Ajijic. Just wondering. I suppose I could get a BBVA credit card but I already have 2 CC from HSBC. What am I missing?
  2. Yes, I have seen the curent law of public access broken in so many places over the years
  3. Work has started on the the bike path west of Ajijic in the area of Ancla restaurant and La Pueblita. There has been a bike path there for years all the way to Jocotepec but it was not maintained. It is overgrown in places and the surface is too rough so it has not been used a lot. In many areas it should be relatively easy to make it into a nice bike path. In other parts not so easy.
  4. I think Adriana at 33 1172 1724 will do it. If you already have plates you only need a new sticker. Adriana is a lawyer and can do either.
  5. Thanks for the translation-I was struggling with it.
  6. I have split cords of wood over the years and for me a wedge functions better that a maul. If I can't find a wedge locally I may get one made. This is actually for a neighbour and he wants a wedge.
  7. I see what they are now; https://www.google.ca/search?q=splitting+maul&newwindow=1&sxsrf=ALeKk02vln9ut-u8os4U2Q1OwD554D9b6g:1603838789008&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=_fka7Gp4DDeAWM%252C65IoRPi3JZwf_M%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kTc0wSN2qIo8Ji9WQDEoqeLE18vsA&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwibua6K7dXsAhUDO60KHSusDS4Q_h16BAgQEAU#imgrc=_fka7Gp4DDeAWM The head of some of them is very much like a wedge so you might be better off just getting a wedge.
  8. Does any one know where one can buy a metal wedge for splitting wood? I tried at the new Home Depot in Zapaopan today and they don't sell them. They said that they are called mangos. Some local hardware store might carry them. Otherwise we will have to get one made.
  9. One from Canada and one from Mexico but I am getting rid of the latter shortly.
  10. That 5.5% surcharge at HSBC has been there for over a year. Just decline it. No ATM fee when I use my HSBC debit card. Over 9 pesos when I use Bank of America card. Still the same ATM fee.
  11. Quality Care seems to be in a bit of chaos today. Their old office is empty. After I found their new office the gal could not find me in the computer but she found me there last week.
  12. Yes many people spell it wrong. "The surname Stong was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area of Franconia" https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Todd_Stong
  13. Yes, it is often spelled wrong. "The surname Stong was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area of Franconia" "Spelling variations of this family name include: Stregen, Stang, Stange, Stragne, Strege, Streege and many more."
  14. This shows how much lower the lake is this year in comparison to the last 2 years and where it is trendiing to. This trend could be reversed if there is signivicant rainfall to the east and some of the dozens of dams are opened. https://www.ceajalisco.gob.mx/contenido/chapala/chapala/comportamiento.html
  15. They provide a good service. Lots of specialists.
  16. When I use a Bank of America debit card at HSBC the ATM fee is just over 9 pesos. When I use my HSBC debit card there, there is no ATM fee or surcharge.
  17. According to the 7 Conagua sites that measure the lake level daily the level has dropped .71 centimetrs in the last 4 days and the daily drop in rate is increasing. Most people that look at a lake when it is calm assume the level is the same all across the lake but this is usually not the case. Tides and seiches affect the laske differently in different places. The tide on Lake Chapala is very small on the lake and seiches (caused by differences in atmospheric pressure in different places and by wind) usually are small but a 30 centimeter seiche has been measured on the lake supposedly. Who a
  18. When I last did it I found it quite confusing so I got a lawayer to do it. The lawyer even drew up a release for the maid to sign. I liked that as I did not want someone hounding me. If you want to do it your self as far as I know Rolly's Mexico is still correct; https://rollybrook.com/employee-pay.htm Go down to termination pay.
  19. Quality care moves to beside the San Antonio hospital this week. I have an appointment there Wednesday-I hope they are ready.
  20. Last time the payment machine overcharged me but gave me a credit for the next month. I guess it didn'thave the right change. The office should open-it usually soon it isn't overly busy insiide.
