  1. She who may be obeyed just did a Wine run . All closed, anybody have info??
  2. US export from Phoenix, Import them at the Mexico border. Be careful what you buy! On the other hand they may be very hardy after rooting is established. Does any one know all the poisonous plants in Mexico?
  3. Copied from Interjet Facebook post #InterjetInforma Debido a la crisis sanitaria a nivel global por COVID-19, y con el fin de garantizar la seguridad de sus pasajeros y colaboradores, Interjet informa que como medida preventiva, DEJARÁ DE OPERAR TEMPORALMENTE sus RUTAS INTERNACIONALES a partir del 24 de marzo. Esta medida se toma en respuesta al cierre de fronteras y a las restricciones que han anunciado distintos países para los vuelos internacionales, así como la disminución de la demanda de pasajeros a dichos destinos. Cabe mencionar que INTERJET CONTINÚA OPERANDO VUELOS NAC
  4. I understand that they have curtailed most International routes pending landing permissions. They continue to service all domestic routes. I have moved our flight to Montreal back into Early May & rec'd a new itinerary minus seat selection. Time will tell.
  5. I contacted Shaw via a Chat with Technical support. After much data back & forth he stated that the LNB was very old & needed replacement? Its 10yrs old. I asked how this same LNB was supplying perfect reception to another set-up in the bedroom at the same time. I could only get our TV rm set-up to display the guide but without the preview window. It was solid black & unable to access any guide items. Message on all channels "The Receiver has lost the Satellite Signal" Help! all were unavailable? I understand that Xku band LNB is for the new Satellites which we can not reach here.
  6. No programmes available except the guide? Are we still in the Black out timing?
  7. We have many orioles at our feeders one quaks like a Duck, still have not gt a pic?
  8. Last November on arrival here I noticed a post by an homeowner living in SJC. There home had been broken into via a Large Patio Slider. Key Words? There recommendation for their Insurer left me with the impression that they had not had any issues in receiving compensation. Our experience with our current insurance company is the exact opposite, delay, deny & undervalue. Of course on arrival there are many pressing issues, so I did not copy the response & send myself an email. So if this rings a bell with any one, pls let me know the company name. TIA
  9. Tony's new venture is in San Nicolás de Ibarra on the mountain side of the road to the golf club. 5 to 6 steps at the front entrance, I can not recall if there is a ramp. Opened about a month ago?
  10. Transitos were noticeable by their incompetence! Who was in charge?
  11. Valid as a rockfall completely blocking the bike path, never mind the surface is totally deteriorated. d
  12. I'm guessing you do not understand Yesterday to mean the 24th Feb? Actually I ventured as far as I wanted & had no need to go further!
  13. Drove the western end of the bike path yesterday from Villa Nova to the western end of the restaurants just before La Cima then back. The bike path, while quite wide & protected by concrete Jersey Barriers is a mess, drivable as small path, width 30 cm to 60cm all the rest is plugged up with the leavings of the contractors responsible for the scarifying the roadway. Dirty asphalt piled up to 10cm depth right across the pathway from 1-2 meters in length repeating at periodic intervals as if dumped? Sorry no pics!
  14. Once a year I go to see them & replenish my stock of parts for my system. As far as I know they are still happly designing & installing irrigation systems. That said many hardware stores will quote on some parts put few have stock on hand. I may be mistaken however, so if you see a rainbird banner ask & let the rest of us Know. Good Luck
  15. ea93105: Is that what all the fuss was about. Drove thru the corral both ways, on the way home they waved me into this free portal. No signage & the digital display is of no use to anyone but a frequent user? The old static display was very readable however not easily changeable. Simple stupid!
  16. Meant to mention that in my post. We used the Macrolibremiento on Monday last at 73, returning Friday the toll was 75
  17. Went in to pick up my sticker, she had it ready no printing req'd. The strange thing was it was exactly the same as the one I rec'd 2± weeks earlier. The only difference was the 1st 1 did not peel off as easily as the replacement she had ready for me. Old stock, who knows?
  18. We just returned from Manzanillo. There is a great deal of construction going on with a new interchange being assembled for the travel to or from Jocotepec on 15 towards 80 & 54D. No signage for a detour in any direction?
  19. I have been wondering what that was all about? It does not seem to have the usual holograms?? Have not pulled it off the backing paper yet.
  20. Lupita is a Keeper, says hi to you as well. Tks for the recommendation!
  21. Every once in a while I have a #1 cut, wife hates it, my son has a shaved head for 8-10yrs. I do actually have quite a bit of hair on the top but its so fine it might as well be gone. So thanks for the all advice, I will start with the closest & work my way out. Quite a few I had never heard about, so most curious!
  22. Coyote in Buganvilla Plaza is Gone, where are you getting your hair cut Now? San Antonio, Ajijic, Riberas? I'm a 72± senior, bald with a fringe, not really complicated! I found a shop called Panache(sp) across the street in the search function & have used the gentleman in Chapala however parking is hell right now! All recommendations appreciated by Coyotes old clientele.
  23. About 9:00pm it was back on in Upper Riberias.
  24. Have always used Sherwin Williams here in Mexico but with all the construction & the assorted colours we require, the trek through all the construction to SW is daunting. They will have to colour match our existing SW palette? We have a Casters here in Riberas the other is Sayer I believe. All comments & opinions are appreciated.
  25. Your most welcome! Let us know how it all worked out. Sched 40 is not that cheap to buy, but it is strong, wall thickness is 3mm± so a much better quality! Cheers
