  1. Definitely feeling 'ratty' here, and wondering if i'm being played for a fool. I haven't heard a word from Ilox in many, many months, probably since very early 2019 or even late 2018. When I signed up and paid my one year in advance, it was supposedly for 'preferred' installation after the first of this year. What a crock of B.S. I think I've seen them working out on the street here in lower Chula Vista, up on ladders, etc., but I haven't heard anything from them. I'm starting to wonder if I'm better off just staying with Telmex which is cheaper.
  2. I assume you live somewhere Lakeside. To save you all of the hassles of bus, taxi, Uber, or the "buddy system" mentioned above by various posters, take advantage of the Consulate services 1X each month at LCS. The reply from LCS Notices, above, is accurate. Seems the Consulate gave you bad info. When you come to LCS on the designated Wednesday, go to the big back patio area. You will see a big group of folks, happily seated and waiting. Check in with Norm, the volunteer at the table. The Consulate folks will arrive shortly, after they finish up at the American Legion, and the 'customers' are all waited on in a quite timely manner. If you have any questions when first arrive at LCS, there are volunteers in the Office and at the Information Desk, AND docents/guides who will even escort you back to the patio! But come prepared with proper documentation and proper check. And only for Passport Renewals and Notary svcs.
  3. I want to buy a LARGE bottle of daily vitamins, like the 270 quantity, at least. Have been happy with the Kirkland brand of "Vitaminas, Minerales y Luteina Tabletas Para Adultos Mayores de 50 Años", with the silver label, 270 quantity, but the Lakeside Shopping Service (from Costco) website no longer loads onto my device, probably due to my weak signal here. Don't want to drive to Costco and don't want to drive all over searching out places Lakeside. Most places seem to just have little expensive bottles. Also, I'd like to know where I can get the BIG jar of Omega 3 fish oil capsules, 360 mg. Been getting this at Costco via the Lakeside Shpg Svc as well -- big bottle with 300 capsules. I've checked at Walmart with no luck. Thank you in advance for your suggestions. 😌
  4. And I've heard over the years that there's a good framing place in Chapala that is quite reasonably priced, but I've not been there, and I don't know the location! Can someone chime in? I've been wanting to check it out.
  5. I think I've seen dance classes advertised on a big banner in front of the Auditorio in Ajijic. The banners are hanging way out in front near the carretera.
  6. I got a very nice one with a wide brim at the "dollar store" across street from Ajijic Plaza. Price was right, too!
  7. Wayne, what about your regular chocolate lady? Sweets and Treats? Also, someone said there's a place that sells chocolates on Colon, a block or 2 up from 16 de Septiembre. The Panadería Scandinavia in Centro Laguna mall sells chocolates that are very yummy; don't know their source. Also, there are at least 2 people who sell chocolates at the Tuesday Market. One last idea would be to get someone who makes delicious chocolatey fudge or brownies or even chocolatey cakes. Hope this helps.
  8. Someone is really trying to just argue and argue some more. And, for what? It is not pleasant at all to be on this web board and have to read posts from someone who just wants to be antagonistic and snarky. Computer Guy, I wish I could help you out with some info, but my Ilox hasn't been installed yet.
  9. I have a dial tone on my Telmex landline, but lately my Telmex wifi signal has been weaker than usual. Or, at least that's what I assume to be true because there are certain websites that never load. Most online stuff is accessible, but for instance I cannot get onto the Lakeside Shopping site because it never loads, just a white screen. Never used to happen.
  10. 1) Rony, thanx for the update on that penalty. It's more than I would want to pay, but I think it used to be even higher. Good incentive for not going below the minimum! 2) And, to bontepar's "Scotiabank charges 45 pesos no minimum", what are they charging 45 pesos for? 3) I have a Bancomer check'g acct, and they don't provide monthly statement hardcopies. I asked the bank to review with me how to see the acct online, as I no longer could use that dumb little device with the codes, and I was told I had to basically buy a card or a token or something in order to access my acct, and I declined to play that game. As I recall, it was about the equivalent of $25 USD in order to view my own statement and transactions! Then the rep told me that they would send email updates of transactions, etc., but that was a crock of b.s. So, does anyone have any info to help? 4) I may be getting a bit aggravated with Bancomer. I remember years back, they used to bill themselves as having dedicated service for expats. Now it seems there's no one there who speaks much English. I do have a functional command of Spanish, but it's still difficult to communicate there anymore.l
  11. I was there this past Sunday for the Democrats Abroad movie and didn't notice anything disagreeable.
  12. The same thing happened to a friend less than a week ago at the CI Banco atm in Centro Laguna. He contacted the US bank of the card he used in the atm, Fidelity Bank, and his acct was credited within 24 hours. I agree with the others that this is what you need to do. The company responsible for the atm machine is probably not the HSBC Bank.
  13. SunFan, I rent in "lower" Chula Vista and have always been cautious about drinking tap water here. In your opinion, do the testing and claims about the clean Chula Vista water apply to every Chula Vista household?
