    Does anyone know about piano tuners coming to Ajijic from Guad for group visits and if there is a ongoing schedule for this that anyone is a part of? Does anyone know the general price range they are currently charging?

    There have been numerous posts here about that.  Perhaps you could do a search to find them.

  2. I need an old used bike to make into a stationary bicycle.  Doesn`t have to look good at all.  One you have around that you thought would never sell, one you were about to throw away, been in your garage forever.  It does have to have a back wheel and tire, chain and pedals and does have to work for my size but that`s about it.

    Need a very ordinary used 4-drawer (wood) dresser.  So far (Riberas, AJijic  and FB) priced out of sight!  To those who live or shop in Chapala... are there any there? Gracias in advance

    I live in Chapala.  There are no second hand shops in Chapala. There was one nice one on Morelos for many years but it went out of business a year or more ago.

    Can't remember off the top of my head and I shredded all bills of this nature in my New Year clean out. Give them a call and get a quote. It's going to depend on the size of your aljibe anyway... also whether there are tree roots and/or if it needs parging.

    Unfortunately, their site says "permanently closed".  Do you think it might have been under 2,000 pesos?

    I used JP Home Services to clean my aljibe. More than one person came which, I think, is important for safety reasons. Drained, cleaned, parged and then filled. Still clean and doesn't leak. I drop a couple of small tabs of chlorine into it every month and I only use my aljibe for emergency water.

    What did they charge, if I may ask?

    New thread to report and recommend.

    Aljibe portionBefore you ask.....    4 ft W x 11 ft L x 9 ft deep.   

    Via local Mexican connections found  Daniel Enciso  cell 331 344 3806jefe at main San Antonio pozo (well). Came Wednesday 9 a.m. to insert submersible pump.   Back at 2:30 with  BIG pressure sprayer machine and a helper. Down there until 5 pm, pumping out rest of water & guck from bottom and cleaning/inspecting walls. Also found 5- gal pailful of tree roots invading (from  outside our wall). Luckily entered above aljibe "wall" so no cracks  (he inspected carefully). Cut off roots at source.


    What did he charge, if I may ask?

    fbu.guadalajara@ssa.gov    This is the email address I used most recently.

    This is the I`ve been using for anything I need from Sec. Sec. over the years.  Just tell them what you want to do and they will tell you how to proceed.

  8. MC, in Chapala, Totalplay put up its cables on my street months ago so installation was just running a cable to the house.  My TotalPlay is running at about 35 mbps according to 5 internet speed programs.  I am supposed to be getting 100mbps.  But the speed I`m getting gives me uninterrupted streaming (no whirling green circles) and all websites come up pretty fast and there has only been 2 very brief interruptions in service in a month (at least one a day up to several hours with Telmex) so I`m perfectly satisfied.  I may get around to calling them about the discrepancy in internet speeds or I may not that`s how satisfied I am.

  9. After 10 years here with cohetes going off every few days, I`ve realized there is no point in asking "Why?".   Could be a birthday, another type of gathering, couple of guys sitting in their car late at night just setting them off, some guy down at the lake ripping a few or it could actually, as the cultural explanation goes, be a fiesta.   At first, I went crazy, asking everyone "Why?" and getting angry each time ("How dare they disrupt my peace?").  The Mexican always just shrugged their shoulders, like "yeah, so what, what can you do about it?".  Now, cohetes are just part of my landscape.  My aural mind has evolved.  But I don`t have dogs or cats so I don`t have that predicament and it must be pretty awful.  So, unless you want to do battle with the priests, and you know the cops won`t do anything and the neighbors won`t do anything, you`re going to have to find a solution for yourself and your dogs.
