  1. I thought you had to turn off location on your android phone and that would stop your phone being tracked. I thought putting you phone in Airplane mode would not stop someone from tracking your phone.
  2. I had (have) no idea when I first started but now I have some idea but the solution is not easy.
  3. Somehow it would be nice to stop this data collection but it seems to come from so many different places.
  4. In my case I use it because it was so easy and friendly to use and free and I didn't know what else to use
  5. None at the west end of the lake.
  6. No rainfall so far this weekend in the Jocotepec area.
  7. When I turned on my computer this morning something surprising came up in my email. Google Maps Timeline Time line update for May It showed all towns and places I had visited in May and some from several years ago. Even inside pictures (a stock one) of several restaurants I had visited. Snoopy. What if this got into the wrong hands I have to wonder. I turned off location history. I don't know if this will stop that snooping. For some but not most I had used the GPS on my cell phone to get there. But for all I had my cell phone with me. How can this be?
  8. I suspect that would be an easy fix for Jose at Teleservicios Calvario in San Juan Cosala.
  9. I bought a bottle of wine at Paz this morning about 10. It is all so arbitrary.
  10. Regardless there are thousands of Tapatios Lakeside on the weekend and quite a few during the week. Thousands of them own houses here so they don't need to be out in public all the time.
  11. Of course the checkpoints are a joke. Full of holes but what else can they do?
  12. At the roadblock east of San Juan Cosala they usually only stop a few of the cars. They seldom ask for residence. If you are wearing a cobreboca you are free to go usually. Often the checkers are sitting in the shade back 10 meters from the carretera. Many people from Guadalajara have second homes Lakeside so they come and go as they please.
  13. The "paint" you buy at Prisa will work on whatever insects you are having a problem with. There is no need to tent your furniture for weeks somewhere. The "paint" worked for years. It was furniture that was on my covered mirador so no need to tent or worry about the fumes. I have worked with antique furniture for years also. I had 2 dogs dogs and there was no problem. You are making it more complicated that it needs to be. When I had a house by the ocean I we tried painting the wood with used diesel but it was too stinky.
  14. There is a much easier way, paint it with an insecticide.
  15. The people most familar with such things are Mexicans who deal with wood. Where do you live? There should be a good hardware or wood store in your area that is familiar with the problem and the solution. Take some of the maggots and dust with you.
  16. I wouldn't waste my time trying to research termites here-you won't find much. Just go to the Prisa store in Downtown Ajjic (you may even want to take some of the critters and some dust). They know what will solve your problem as they have been dealing for years with it here.. It may be quite different here than in Norther California.
  17. Sleep tight. The Las Fuentes guards are on duty. I live somewhere near you and my 2 screen doors don't have locks and I don't worry too much.
  18. Yes, it is strong so someone else did it for me even though I have a pesticde applicators license. It worked well-no more piles of sawdust. We did a neighbours also. Tell Prisa what you want it for and they should know what it is right away. Sorry, I don't remember the name. We didn't wrap it in a plastic but did it outside where the furniture was used.
  19. The Prisa/Truper store in Ajijic sells a clear product that you paint on the wood. It worked on my equipale furniture.
  20. The age old security question. I know a couple in Jocotepec who put in bullet proof glass and then bars outside of that.
