  1. Mario from Satellite Systems came out today and as he repeatedly shook his head at what my friend's late husband had set up eight years ago got everything working again and will be back later when he has more time to completely rewire the house! Thanks everyone.
  2. I went to Telmex on March 17 to add internet service back to my account. They told me that a third party vendor would be delivering my modem within the next six days! After 15 days and two emails from this third party vendor telling me to be home for delivery it still hadn't arrived. When I went back to Telmex and complained they loaned me a new modem. Here it is May 3 and I still have not received my modem!!! I have Telecable as well and have wanted to do a test on which service gives me the best service. So far Telecable wins but I am grandfathered in to the "higher" speed of 8 download. I get it occasionally but at least I don't lose their service several days a week as I do with Telmex here in west Ajijic. I doubt the Telmex office will be getting their loaner modem back soon!
  3. I have a friend that has an incredibly complicated dish tv (hooked to three tv's), a sound system hooked to one of the dish tv's and more wires going every whichway and a WD box hooked to the tv and a computer. We want to simplify it all but need a knowledgeable person to disconnect everything and start it all again in a more simplified fashion. Currently there are wires that don't make any sense to us so we don't want to fool with it ourselves. Does anyone have a person that could do it for us? Thanks. Email me at mexilady@ymail.com please

  5. We had a beautiful headboard made years ago with copper inlays made in Tonala. the factory information is: Replicas y Originales Ornelas (the owner is Eric Jaime Ornelas Sepulveda and he speaks English) Carrt.

It is outside the main shopping district.
  6. Thanks, I will go see him on Monday.
  7. Is there a tv repair person that will come to my home to repair my very large tv? I know about the repair place in SJC but don't want to have to try and get this thing in my car. Thx.
  8. You might want to get a plumber to clean out the trap on your sink. That is often the place they hang out/ Hot water doesn't seem to kill them!
  9. Make sure your US cc doesn't charge you a foreign transaction fee.
  10. Ok, Here is my 2 cents. Everyone that suddenly discovers our "Paradise" thinks they should be the last ones that find it. I may be listed as a newbie but have been here since 2005 and don't post often because of the abusive nature of so many. This town will continue to grow as more boomers feel the need to leave their homelands and those of us here that hate all the added traffic will continue to complain. There isn't anything you can do to change it except complain so get over it. I live on the far west side and I hate the traffic and time it takes me to go east but who am I to complain about others that have discovered us and want to join us here. It has always been inevitable since my aunt discovered her paradise here in the late 70's.
  11. The rehab center behind the Ajijic Clinic has them 766-5563
  12. We bought ours from Juan Pablo at Home Services (Handy Mail - east of Super Lake) It is stainless steel so it won't rust. They also installed it for us.
  13. Years ago you could go to CFE and change the name on the account (say from the husband's name to the wife's name) and that would start you as a new user and get you out of DAC immediately. I don't know if it works that way anymore but it would be worth a try.
  14. Maybe I am not seeing the big picture here but WHY would Mexico not want folks that are here for six months a year to not be able to buy a Mexican car? Apparently this is now the case for 2017. It is still legal to drive one and I guess if you already own one then it won't be a problem but if you want another car then you are no longer able.
  15. Is anyone else experiencing a loss of signal at night on MSNBC and HGTV? I get it during the day but lose the signal at night. I have reset the receiver to no avail.
  16. Oatsie, that worked for me. Thanks for the help. I also found that I needed to eliminate the "1" after the "52" if dialing a landline.
  17. I am in the US with my telcell iphone that uses t-mobile while here. I can't seem to find the right way to call back to Mexico. I am calling another telcell phone. I tried putting a one in front of the number, I tried just the number and also tried using country code + 1 + number and still can't get through. Anyone know the correct series of numbers to call. Thanks
  18. I love this site. I got a house sitter within 12 hours of listing!!! This will make spur of the moment trips possible again.
  19. Thanks I will take our ballots into LCS today.
  20. Is there going to be another ballot pickup this week at LCS?
  21. We just used Rudy to have Quartz counter tops installed. My understanding is that in Mexico the quartz is not engineered like in the US but real slabs cut just like granite or marble. The great thing about quartz is that it is way more "tuff" then granite or marble. It took Rudy three times more blades to cut our quartz then it did his granite slabs. We had a much better choice of colors to choose from by choosing quartz. The two slabs we needed for our kitchen cost us $7000 US. The only maintenance on them is to occasionally rub them with the red oil our maid loves to use and leave it on overnight before rubbing it out. After three months we haven't had to do that yet to maintain it's shine. Rudy's employees were prompt and cleaned up every evening before they left. My entire kitchen gut job took about 8 days. We are thrilled with the results.
  22. Can someone please post her Joco office address and phone number please.
