  1. Anybody know how to get it delivered in Chapala?
  2. I am told that Lakeside_Shopper_Service is no longer taking on new members. Does anyone know of another service?
  3. Question: I have a small refund check from IRS; Bancomer won't cash US Government checks. Other than wallpaper, does anyone have suggestions?
  4. Perhaps, someday when you have time, pull out as far as you can and then go back in your house and wait. Traffic will back up as will the noise. If someone comes and asks that you move your car, sweetly answer that you will when they move so you can get out. That will have someone else asking for you and will make the social cost to them much higher without doing any damage. Repeat as required.
  5. Xena: As Robert Heinlein once said "When you can see the smoke from your neighbor's chimny, it is time to move to another planet." Good luck.
  6. From Riberas to San Antonio it is about a 2" orange conduit. Could be to light the path, but it sure looks like fibre to me. Certainly not water & sewer.
  7. It seems to me that we are missing the point. Someone wanted underground fibreoptic along Hildago. They bribed their way to get the bike path so the road could be torn up. Notice that the fibre is going in on the traffic side of the bike path, not the away from traffic side. That will make access to it even more dangerous and disruptive. My thoughts.
  8. I had to have some work done at the Toyota dealer. (March '19) To say that he was not competent to work on my Lexus is a huge understatement. When we went to pick it up not only had he not fixed the problem, but there were other major things wrong. He did get the car into condition that I can drive it home and to a true Lexus dealer. I hope not to have a Lexus when I return next year!
  9. Hi Spencer, Do w need a new, additional update on Chapala rules? They were just published. Thanks for what you do. Rick
  10. A lawyer recommended to me that I get a document from my maid and helper that states that they work for others and that they are sole proprietors while working for us.
  11. A couple of years ago when I knew we would be here for the warm season I bought a large window swamp cooler from the States. I installed it on the mirador blowing down the stairs. On a very hot day my granddaughters couldn't watch TV because it was too cold! The temp was 72° on the 2nd floor and it was 75° downstairs. Swamp coolers work very well here if properly sized. Remember that the output of the cooler should be such that it will replace the complete volume of air in your home in one minute, two at most. That also means that you go the farthest part of the house and open a window.
  12. Since I am going to San Franscisco, going through Larado makes no sense.
  13. Does anyone know about the drive from Sonoyta to Mexicali on route 2? How is the road? Is there much traffic? Is it safe for a Gringo hauling a small trailer? Or should I go North at Lukeville to Gila Bend and West? 70 extra miles, well over an hour with the trailer. Thanks, Rick
  14. We have a young man who, at his request, does general chores for us for 60 pesos an hour for whatever hours we need plus 75 pesos to wash our car and clean it inside. He has just left for a 3 week job out of town where he will get "about the same" , full time, 6 days a week. So we are paying him "market rate". It reminds me of a story from my mother. During WWII my father was posted to a city in the South; we had lived in New York. She asked the other wives what to pay a maid. She said that what was being paid was much too little, and she paid what she thought was a living wage. The
  15. My wife has used accupuncture successfully in the past ad has a need to try it again. Is there a good accupuncturist around? Thanks, Rick
