  1. Any where in Chapala, Riberas, SAT or Ajijic. Tks tried Riberas today nada
  2. I have a Free Canon MP560 c/w 10+ cartridges, 3 larger dbl black cartridges included, all in sealed cello. The printer requires a new print head, the original was clogged from lack of use. eBay has many listed QY6-0073 Printhead For Canon iP3600 iP3680 MP540 MP560 MP568 MP620 $24.98± I have removed & cleaned the original head several times without any success. Removal is simple the U tube videos are straight fwd pm me for contact info
  3. Does anyone have this site listed somewhere, used it last year with some success. The on-line message had concluded with a statement that the actual decal would be mailed. 1 year later went to their office on Delgado & the staff member went to a back desk that held about 150 200 decals, pulled mine out & flipped it to me. Well now I know! They kept my receipt that I had been holding in case we were stopped. So no web Site Data
  4. In Mexico artificial turf is translated into Lava Rock, comes in a multitude of sizes from basically dust to a pea stone sized nugget to great big chunks. Trust me much much nicer than AT. No cutting or watering necessary. Place potted plantings were ever your heart desires. I hate grass especially AT. If you go this route place a water permeable weed barrier down under the lava rock.
  5. Two tv's hooked up, 1 is OK, the other refuses, keeps saying I'm Not Connected to the Internet? Both are Smart WiFi TV's Re-input my Password, on a similar problem last week I had to reset Netflix. Same TV. Whats up? Today the wife changed the input to HDMI3 it's actually on Wifi! Netflix now asked for email & password, last evening nada!
  6. Part of the problem with solar panels is their efficiency at various pump speeds. We have solar panels & a continuously variable speed pump, fully programable. If we run it at 900 rpm for 2-4hrs the solar is extremely efficient. Think about the time the water has to heat within the solar panels, longer is better. Water temp can easily go from 76° to 81°±
  7. 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 o
  8. 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.
  9. Does anyone know when the Minister Public is available at the LCS with a Translator Tks
  10. Yippie, Tks for that I was a bit worried that photo radar had got me? Feliz Navidad!
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. Try "Lands End" Excellent sizing including custom inseam lengths
  14. Better get their stand over height: Crotch to planted foot
  15. 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?
  16. 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?
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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?
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
