  1. I see a lot of people saying ‘legally a fracc can do this and not that’ but has anyone an actually know where one finds the law, from which authority to do this and not that, exists?
  2. I have searched here for information posted about memberships in fraccionamientos not being compulsory. To no avail. Is there a law, and where can I find it, municipal, state or federal relevant to membership. Thanks
  3. To solve the immediate problem take your old bill to cfe and at the machine where you can pay it will scan it and tell you current amount due. Or, talk to someone there in person, maybe best for long term
  4. Total Body Care used to, as in maybe still does, have an acupuncturist come in. I believe he studied in China
  5. I would think it depends on how tinaco was hooked up to the system. I have had them where water into ajibe then to tinaco and exit from there. Reason was to gravity feed in advent of power outage.
  6. 17 years ago it was a wonderful and quiet little cultural paradise. 2 years ago it became intolerable to drive in the traffic. Moved.
  7. I did as mostly lost suggested but paid in cash at oxxo. Results all positive.
  8. From mexexperience...... “If you are driving into Mexico (or currently in Mexico) with a foreign-plated vehiclewith a TIP (Temporary Import Permit) we understand that Banjercito —the Agency that administers the permits— is not giving any extensions to TIP expiry dates due to Covid. If you fail to drive your vehicle out of Mexico before the TIP expires, the vehicle will become illegal in Mexico (this affects the validity of you your auto insurance) and you will lose your deposit. A TIP’s validity is usually tied to the expiry date of a Visitor Permit (FMM) or a Residente Temporal permit.”
  9. Ortho Fire Ant Killer handles leaf cutters. Going thru the same problem. Wiped out most of the mounds but still some refusing to die. Actually these are granules you apply then drench with water which soaks in and, hopefully, eradicates the Queen. Mercadolibre.
  10. No longer lakeside. If you were in town you’d go to Kitchen Harmony and ask for contact info. (Little strip mall south side of Carreterra just west of Walmart). Alternatively google might yield contact info for kitchen harmony.
  11. Aranza Pamplona. 333-470-2300. Bilingual
  12. I’ve done it but had to pay an arm and a leg for insurance because of Mexican License. My credit card did not include the car insurance but some might.
  13. Don’t know self help cures but my gardener referred to this as “la plaga”. He sprayed the plants every few months and the problem never came back. Is there a garden service Lakeside that will come and spray for you?
  14. Personally, I think thinking in hourly rates is not all that applicable here. In the maid search I would have the applicant come in and either give you a price for the job you expect to be done; or, let her do the job one day for a stipulated price and then give you a price.
  15. Just leave the light in the garage on from dusk tildawn
