  1. I have had a nice small fish pond in my garden for many years but stopped using it 3 years ago when my electric bill skyrocketed because of the pump I was using. My fish pond guy, Jose Luis Preciado, is no longer doing business at his old location in Ajijic. I am now thinking about restarting the pond but with an energy efficient pump and some water plants. Does anyone know of a place here or in Chapala to buy water plants and pumps?
  2. Thank you, blanketmusic. How's the peeing at night?
  3. If any elderly and clearly disabled people need help getting vaccinated they can contact Ana Siller. She will provide a wheelchair and submit your paperwork at the admin section at the main entrance to Parque Christiana and escort you through the process at the head of the line. The whole process took and an hour and a half for my wife yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/anakillah
  4. Excellent English. Years ago, I bought an antique piano from him that he had restored. He's tuned my piano a few times. Tell him Kim sent you.
  5. Manuel Sotomayor - excellent man. Also likes multiple customers to make the trip from Zapopan. https://www.cylex.mx/zapopan/pianos+sotomayor-11618762.html
  6. Mine was deposited yesterday. One day after it was signed.
  7. Two days ago I tried to access my Bancomer account by generating a token code on my iPhone. Access denied. I went to the bank and a friendly clerk tried unsuccessfully to create a facial recognition thingy on my iPhone. She tried again and again but it didn't work. She suggested I come back the next day because the iPhone indicated "no service." I came back this morning and went through the process again for 15 minutes. No dice. For some reason I am now able to generate the token code and and was able to access my account without facial recognition. Has anyone else been unable to create the facial recognition application? Will I be unable to access my account next week if I can't finally get the thing to recognize my face? Help appreciated.
  8. True, but it would be nice to know what those abbreviations stand for anyway.
  9. The dates on my license are - Exp. 08/08/2019 and Ven. 08/08/2023 I was just wondering if US car rental agent might ask me what the "Exp" and "Ven" stand for if she thought my license might be expired. What should I tell her?
  10. Wouldn't the road from Jocotepec be better?
  11. Any word yet on when the lockdown for people over 60 will end in Guadalajara? Need to go shopping at SAM's.
  12. I understand that Guadalajara supermarkets aren't allowing people over 60 to shop during the lockdown. Does anyone know if the big box stores are following the same guidelines?
  13. Thank you bmh. I haven't used my curp for many years and it's now way out of date. Can you tell me how to find the curp site so I can register?
  14. CURP explained in English. https://universaldomainexchange.com/vivacue2/what-is-a-curp-card/#:~:text=The CURP Card is needed,photo and date of issuance.
  15. Just tried to sign up. But I don't have a US mailing address You must be able to verify some information about yourself and: - Have a valid email address; - Have a Social Security number; - Have a U.S. mailing address
  16. Thanks, southland. Some useful tips, especially about not needing the actual document.
  17. For years, I have received my social security benefit statement via the Mexican post office. This year, I fear I won't. In March the tax refund check mailed to me by the IRS was returned to the IRS. A letter from my German bank was returned to my German bank. I have not received a single magazine I subscribe to since July. Who knows what else simply hasn't been delivered. Now I need my social security statement urgently for my 2020 tax return. Does anyone know if the US Consulate could help?
  18. Thank you. Cardura is made by Pfizer. Maybe the covid vaccine is causing the shortage.
  19. For several years I've been taking Cardura for an enlarged prostate. This afternoon I went to six different pharmacies in Ajijic and Chapala and none of them had my meds. Luckily I was finally able to find a 2 mg packet, which will get me by until I can see my doctor to see what else is available. Does anyone know of an alternate medication?
