  1. On Mercado Libre there are advertised these miniatures for sale in the Chapala area. Anyone know the name of a local breeder where I can go and look at them and purchase one?
  2. Home Depot carries premixed grey cement. Just add water and dries very hard if you have a need for something stronger than white cement..
  3. A CRV is not a very good choice as a trailer towing vehicle. Doesn't sound like you are doing the math correctly. When the manufacturer states 1500 lbs. that means the "gross weight rating". This includes the weight of the trailer AND contents. A typical 5' x 10'' cargo trailer weighs in around 1000 lbs. or more depending on the equipment so you would only be able to haul up to 500 lbs. of cargo before you are at the limit. There should be a label on the tongue with the weights of the trailer. Also, the tongue weight needs to be about 10% of the gross weight if it is a single axle tr
  4. The reason the Canadian Medical System delays hip replacement surgeries so long is in the hope that the patient will pass before ever reaching the scheduled surgery date. Priority is given to younger patients on many of the similar geriatric conditions (such as cataract surgery).
  5. Interesting question. How does Aduana handle a situation when you attempt to cross the border coming into Mexico with a Mexican plated vehicle towing a NOB plated trailer? They do not issue separate temporary import permits on a standalone basis for a towed trailer (unless it can be classed as an RV and be eligible for a 10 yr. permit) or such items as ATV's on a trailer, etc. Expect there will be some interesting interpretations on that one.
  6. As above - Fester 12 yr. white. Only thing I would add is to seal any cracks that are visible first with SikaFlex or lay down a strip of fiberglass cloth and coat over with the Fester.
  7. Yes, I redid my gas lines with a product similar to what you have pictured above. I was able to buy the pipe by the meter, compression couplings and the reaming tool from an excellent gas supply store on Girabaldi in Sta. Teresita (Guadalajara). It is directly kitty corner across the intersection from Karnes Girabaldi Restaurant there.
  8. Amex cards not as widely accepted as Visa and Mastercard cards. You may want to check with a few merchants first before buying anything from them.
  9. Yes, most of the larger chain stores have chip readers now. NOB issued credit cards (Visa/MasterCard) work fine - Amex not so much.
  10. I can't answer Floradude's question since I am not a resident of Chapala. I renewed mine a couple of weeks ago in Ocotlan but I am a resident of the Municipality of Poncitlan. I can't see why they would care because the Ocotlan office is a State level office and not a Municipal one - but the rules can change at any time!!
  11. The place you go is in the Plaza San Felipe on Avenida Universidad 2000. This is the main road leading north that takes you up to the interchange with 15D. Easiest way to get there from Chapala is head toward the airport on Hwy. 23 then exit onto Hwy. 35 towards La Barca. As you come into Ocotlan, you cross over the bridge (the Rio Santiago) just before you get to the main downtown area. Keep right on the off ramp and then keep left as you come down off the overpass. This is Avenida Univerdsidad 2000. Continue on up this road past the Soriana, Federal Police Station and then in a few mor
  12. And you can stick that type in many different orifices just like the old mercury type!!!
  13. The last time I went with someone to get an RFC# set up for a small business (so they could issue facturas) we had to go to the SAT office in the Abastos market area. The accountant handled all of the paperwork for us and came along to assist.
  14. Spoke with Freddie today and he gave me a new telephone# for the restaurant in San Juan Tecomatlan - (33) 2165-4396
  15. I have purchased a replacement Resmed face mask directly from one of their Mexican distributors with an office in Guadalajara. AMS (Aerosol Medical Systems) Justo Sierra #2512 Col. Ladron de Guevara Tel" (33) 3641-5089 They have excellent customer service and their prices seemed lower than what I had to pay NOB.
  16. Tony's has leased the building on the south side of the highway in which a couple of other restaurants tried and failed - further to the west (closer to Santa Cruz). I think it used to be called Restaurante Hacienda Don Emiliano. It is the beautiful building with the raised roof over the dining area - sort of like an atrium. Tony will no longer be operating in the front yard of his home further east near San Nicolas and will be apparently be open on weekdays as well at his new location there. Another landmark, it is directly across the road from Mexico Rustico, the excellent custom furnit
  17. I do not have high expectations that anyone on here will know the answer to the above question - but just in case.... Does anyone know of either an industrial chemicals distributor or where in Guadalajara to buy industrial bleach - the 12.5 - 13% sodium hypochlorite in solution - in 20 ltr. or larger containers? Needed for a chlorine injection system on community potable water wells.
  18. Tony's is opening a new location this weekend on the Chapala-Mezcala Hwy. just east of Santa Cruz (beside the water pumping station). Apparently there is going to be a special menu to celebrate the grand opening.
  19. Tanks should be replaced at 20 yrs. of age - regardless. Look at the date labelling on the tank.
  20. windstar, what is your dish/LNB setup? I just checked my signal strength again and channels 592, 651 & 652 are all at 85 (F1 PSK8), 595 at 96 (F1 PSK8) and 700 at 97 (F2 QPSK). Maybe your LNB is a little down on amplification power??
  21. I am an actual account holder and received no notification of any hardware upgrade requirements but I have never had anything other than 600 series receivers on my account.. Thanks for the above list ComputerGuy - it is good to know. This is the schedule of when each channel is going to convert to MPEG4 (which requires the 600 or 800 series to decode) but what makes you think they will be moving any of the existing HD channels we can get off of either F2 or F1R satellites?? On my setup here I can still receive Super Channels 1&2 in SD on channels 260 & 261 and in HD on channels
  22. The link you provided was to a "Free Preview" thread and I don't see where it says that Shaw is actually shutting down the broadcast of any of its HD channels that are currently being carried on either of the satellites we receive signals from (Anik F2 or F1R) and broadcasting them ONLY on the G1. What I do see in some Shaw discussions is that the plan is to shut down the SD channels that are broadcast in HD as well on the F2/F1R satellites but to keep the HD versions that are already there (for now). There are probably thousands of dishes out there on Canadians's homes still that are not ca
  23. A little off the OP's topic but to answer your question snowyco, many of the drilled wells operating along the north shore (including Municipal wells) that are pulling water up from about 50-100 meters down do test for the presence of some amount of fecal coliform counts. That is why it is important to inject chlorine at these well heads to get it under control. There is a problem during the hot/dry season that this water (if untreated) will become quite warm while travelling through distribution pipes and sitting in aljibes. This will result in a "bloom" of the coliform bacteria and become
