  1. Cedros, you mentioned a "smart Plumber" from Jocotopec who helped you with an instant on water heater problem.  Can you pass on his contact info


  2. Buying another "used" dishwasher but I need to get rid of the existing one. It works but needs some repairs. Is there anyone in town that will come get it and recycle it?
  3. I used the BAJA message to 2222 several times and UNOTV continued to send me daily messages. I finally got fed up and went into TELCEL and show them all my attempts to stop the message. The clerk used "2252" BAJA instead - it worked. So if you continue to receive the UNOTV messages - try 2252 instead.
  4. I have a feral cat that has taken up residence in my yard - poor thing was half starved, so, of course, I put food out for it. She/He (I think it's a female) has been here for a couple of weeks and still will not let me get close to her. I would like to take her in for a vet check and spaying but can't catch her. Anyone know where I could borrow a live catch trap for a couple of days?
  5. I am considering renting a condo on Rio Bravo - but 2 individuals have stopped me and warned me about incessant barking dogs living on the property immediately across the road. According to these 2 people, the dogs owner has been completely unwilling to do anything about the noise - which is only at night and lasts all night long. They have told me that they notified the proper authorities and a notification was attached to her fence - BUT - nothing has changed. They also mentioned that one of the dogs recently gave birth to 10 puppies - which should make the situation even worse in a coupl
  6. How strange that Wunderground is working on your ipad and iphone, Al Berca. Mine displays all the weather NOB - and a bit in the Gulf of Mexico - but stops at the border. I'm going to remove the app and reload it - see if that helps.
  7. If someone has posted a remedy to this problem - please just point me in the right direction.... I have a Mac Mini, iPad, and iPhone....all of which had Wunderground and NOAA weather apps loaded. About a month ago they stopped displaying weather south of the US border. I contacted the support desks and they both said "we no longer handle Mexico weather stations"...So, what app will work here in Mexico?
  8. I'm from Texas so I know what fire ant bites look like - and I swear I have 3 on my feet after walking the dogs at Lucky Dog the other day. I didn't think they had fire ants down here.
  9. I have spoken to my lawyer and told hime everything I saw. He said that he will accompany me to the Police station but unless I can prove I was at the scene, they would probably not be interested. I glimpsed the driver in my rear view mirror just before he hit- he was staring straight ahead, both hands on the wheel..
  10. I was the car he was attempting to pass. It was the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. He had clear visibility (I drive a Fit so there was no reason he could not see the truck), he never swerved, or used his brakes; he just slammed into the truck while accelerating. I went back and was going to speak to the Police to tell them the truck driver was not at fault in any way- but the scene was too chaotic. Should I contact the Police?
  11. Does anyone know who was involved in the fatal car accident this afternoon West of town near Arileo's? A silver SUV and a dump truck
  12. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Looks like I'm going with granite. Old countertops will be removed and raised a couple of inches.
  13. I had granite counters installed in the kitchen when the house was renovated 2008. No problems just make sure it is sealed.  Now the bathroom is a whole different story. Twice we had marble and it is a mess again. Yes very porous . I even kept a towel over it and still marked up.  I wondered why you could have marble floors and no problem.  I have to conclude it was Rudi.  So I would be careful.

  14. My kitchen is very small and has countertops made of the typical 4" square tiles....pretty but not practical. I don't want to rip them out but I want to cover them with either formica or granite. Has anyone else ever done this? Is it doable?
  15. Picked up an adorable female 3 1/2 month old black and tan puppy wandering around Barbara's Bazaar near Colon. Took her to Dr. Ladron who check her out and said she was healthy except for a very extended stomach - which is probably worms. Took her to Lucky Dog who will at least keep her safe. If you lost a puppy - please check with Lucky Dog.
