  1. 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!

  2. 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

  3. 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?

    For almost 12 years my gal is Lupita on the plaza in SAT. Started using her out of her mother in laws house just up the street from me when i first moved here full time. A few years later she opened her shop on the north side of the plaza and never a bad haircut. Her prices have gone up a little since then. I think now only $70 and I always give her $100 and she is very happy. It is just her and the shop is always busy with both guys and gals and all seem like regulars so she is doing something right. Tell her that Dennis sent you!

    Lupita is a Keeper, says hi to you as well. Tks for the recommendation!

    If you're bald with just fringe on the sides why not go all the way? I've been shaving my head for the last 25 years, so much easier and cheaper.

    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!

  6. 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. 

  7. 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.

    I, and a number of others who have been here for a long time, use Juan  333 971 0630.  I've never had a problem with him, he is polite and comes when he says he will be here.

    I have followed Juan to 2or3 different companies. He came by to fill up our 300 liter tank & on making change for $1,858 propane bill he short changed me when he handed me 3x20mxp. I pointed this out to him & he apologized & immediately counted out 5x20 or 100mxp. Later on recounting the monies, all 20's I realized he had overpaid us by 20mxp. I should have rec'd 142mxp I held 160mxp. I will call him & ask him to come buy the next time he is in the neighbourhood. Life is always interesting here in Chapala! To error is human, I do it constantly these days!

  9. I'm for impact resistance, cardboard tube is resistant & light for shipping, will survive the occasional pitch during frequent loading, unloading. If you have ever worked with PVC, it shatters on impact, especially at the ends. If you must use it, buy "schedule 40" the thicker heavier version designed for pressure systems and stuff both ends with lots of old reporter. No worries if you are carrying the tube on board. Happy New Year to all! What a beautiful morning!

  10. Finally got around to paying the Fine. Tom gates was right, City Hall on the left inside. Do not know what the original fine was, however after much calculations between 2 cashiers I paid $124mxn, I' m guessing it might have been a lot less if I had gone in sooner as they appeared to be counting days since the I was ticketed? And I did not get another ticket!
