  1. There is/was a new commercial development on the way East towards San Nicolas along the lake that is currently being dismantled piece by piece?About 2-3weeks ago it was completed, landscaping, painting, screening over the yard fencing. Signage identified it as a Holding Yard for Vehicles recovered or impounded by a local towing company. First the roof over the shops & office came down, then the fencing, now the steel roof structure? Is this due to some general misunderstanding during the government change over here in Chapala? Just curious as it will be completely gone by the end of next week. Signage was still there Yesterday!
  2. Many Thanks, they had a translator the last time I used their services, although the MP spoke perfect English? I will check LCS site again, I'm sure the days do not change, just the sign up times.
  3. Does anyone know when the Minister Public is available at the LCS with a Translator Tks
  4. Yippie, Tks for that I was a bit worried that photo radar had got me? Feliz Navidad!
  5. Done: Razor blade to an edge, the whole thing peeled off! Lighter fluid for a small amount of residual glue. elapsed time ±2min took longer to find the razor blade scrapper. Tks for the response S117
  6. Is it custom or law that most all vehicles I see are covered in a complete history of their stay in Jalisco? Are the owners allowed to remove & replace with a current version? Anyone have any advice on how best to accomplish this, if not against the Local Transito laws?
  7. Try "Lands End" Excellent sizing including custom inseam lengths
  8. Better get their stand over height: Crotch to planted foot
  9. Thats my thought, Just spoke to Manager of the wash guys, he saw the whole thing & relayed it's a US plated truck thats in Walmart all the time. So who knows. Repair to front fender, mostly scrapes $2,000± mxn if he can buff out the lamp lens, if not, likely another $2,500± They told me if I get a plate# that it can be traced, Just a thought if she wants to pay up?
  10. No injuries! Minor damage. Lady driving a Black Avalanche Truck. Stopped by Parking Lot Staff before doing anymore damage. Driver left after giving a phone number 767-2189? On calling a recording states the number does not exist? Should have damage on most of Passenger side. Red scrapes. The parking staff did not get plate number or State. Any advice Appreciated?
  11. I have a Hyundai which is a fine car however you will VOID your warranty by taking it anywhere else! Even if the car has sat for 6mths you must adhere to their every 6mth service plan at apprx $2300mxn I was advised but liked the car & the price so buyer beware. I have a KIA in Canada they said one a year was just fine
  12. We do not bring a car down anymore but others that do can perhaps provide recent experiences. First of all Eastern Canada is a pretty big bite. Perhaps a province and major city location could be beneficial to the travel. Secondly Credit cards, I recall being frustrated by gas stations requiring a US postal code to fill up at the pump. If they still do perhaps you Canadians can help with the actual code or codes that were accepted? 11111 Enjoy the trip, both ways, it truly huge continent! Your looking at up to 4500-6000±km one way. Lots of cash for gas & a bed.
  13. Well to update u. Simapa did not arrive yet however when I depress the float valve the water entering is now clear. So without confirmation from the water gods we are all still in the dark. It reminded me of a diatomaceous (sp) earth suspension Tks for the help, another day, another mystery?
  14. Very dense cloud, as mentioned u can not see through it? Suddenly after several minutes its clear our flow alone would allow bubbles, this is like adding a liquid with a dense colour in it through your pool filter, only it's in our aljibe. Called SAT Simapa they said they would send some one to have a look?
  15. Does anyone have any information on Simapa doing additives to the water system in Upper Riberas. I was doing my weekly addition of 2 small chlorine pucks to our 10,000 litre Aljibi & noticed a white cloud at the incoming pipe. Bucketed out a sample & it was too dense to see through, but cleared in several minutes? No smell detected but very disturbing. No construction work visible on our street either?
  16. We use our Can or US Bank Cheques at Intercam. Sameday transfer to Bancomer this after establishing a verified account A much better rate using our XE Money Transfer account to Bancomer directly. Quite a significant increase in Funds Rec'd. The draw back is u wait for the funds to clear. However the more transfers u make the shorter the timing 3 days shortest to date, I recall 5 days when we started. These are both No Fee Transfers.
  17. Yesterday I logged on to my Bancomer account & was surprised that I did not have to use my newly acquired Number Generator? A ihr+ time in Ajijic last week. Owell there were still sufficient funds to stop at their ATM in Chapala. Well what a mess, people waiting everywhere inside the lobby, out the door, only 3of4 machines working, all locals silently waiting for the single large ATM? So as usual I asked, motioned to those in front of me if they wanted use the vacant machine, all declined. I did the usual logon procedure & punched in an amount over 2,500pesos. This activated a Security Message for me which I could not Translate, the ever attentive lobby assistant explained that I would have to go to a teller. So with no one at the entrance ticket dispenser I approached an unoccupied teller, which was strange as the room was packed? 2 video screens are ceiling suspended giving highly suspect information? The teller had explained that I had to get a number & wait? Using the machine to get a service ticket was interesting, it visually appeared to require the users credit cart to be swiped in an upward motion with the stripe up. Nope stripe down. The screen had 2 choices, a guessed & rec'd an Alpha Numeric time stamped receipt & waited. 20-25mins later my number appeared & slowly worked it's way down the screen to appear beside 1 of 4 Teller Cage Numbers. I approached did the usual from many years ago Debit card, ID, PIN etc & rec'd my money, some what over the $2,500 limit. Asking why I was not able to use the ATM she replied that they, the back office managers did not have my telephone number, strange they have my email & use it each & every time a withdrawal is made? She instructed me to take my used ticket back to staff member at the door with upside down stripe. Well the line up to get in required that I wait for 6/8 people to enter each assisted by the staff member, finally she assisted me gave me back my admission ticket & indicated for me to wait for a back office manager, but this time watch on a different screen. I'm now over the 30min mark have my money & appear to be 20-40th in line as all chairs face the teller cages. My car is parked in a dubious location so I bail, enough is enough for 1 day, there is much more to Mexico than Banking!
  18. Has Hector activated an email account that I can contact him with a community issue?
  19. Google "https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=Printing+calenders&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8" Loads of service bureaus that specialize printing your document, they may even assist in layout most only provide templates that you manage for the final proof approval prior to the actual printing. A piece of advice, have someone else or preferably more than one Proof
  20. If the stain u are in search of is a dark reddish brown, quite a common colour used on doors, door mouldings & cabinets try using the meat of a walnut. The juice in the meat will stain the blemished spot. Invisible after the treatment.
  21. A week ago we paid 400 to Riberas, then gave him a healthy tip for man handling all our baggage.
  22. After 10yrs suddenly I can not access my on line account? We are still using the debit card without issue, so On inputting my card number repeatedly I get to a registration page with the following: Before choosing your profile and continue with the activation of your Internet Banking, it is necessary that you have signed your Digital Single Contract in branch. Yes I know just go to the bank complete with all credentials? I gained access 4/5 weeks ago from Canada but had to use the number generator
