  1. The service is currently suspended and may not return. It's not my place to say what happened (just something unexpected, not any glitches in the business), so he should be sending out information to folks in the following weeks. I know that it is a much-appreciated service, so I'm sorry to see it not active. Fingers crossed it comes back or someone else fills the gap...operating in the same safe, by-the-book manner as Hugh and his crew.
  2. They did great work on two of our favorite chairs. Highly recommend them!
  3. Newf, is your billing actually showing that your generating roughly 400KwH energy or just your solar panel? I can't explain on the board why I'm asking, but if it isn't showing, I'll PM you and tell you of our experience and what it took to fix it. No, nothing illegal, but CFE was NOT helpful. Shocking, I know.
  4. Just as a suggestion, you might want to add whether you're willing to share expenses, etc.
  5. LOVE this place! We often go 2x or more a week. It's nothing fancy, but it's consistent and good. The noise is a bit obnoxious, but you learn to tune it out...it's worth it. As for the dogs, people stay outside with them and I've never been bothered. If you prefer not to be in a dog-friendly place, fair enough, but I'd hate for others not to even try El Fogon de Charlotte simply because of one comment. If you haven't already tried them, go! I can also recommend the Chiles en Nogada...diet-buster, but omg, so good! ('scuse me while I mop up the drool).

    Oh, if only I could....but, sadly, I'm trying hard to be healthy. If I had my "druthers," I'd load about a stick of butter over a small bowlful and go hide in a corner with "my precious." Jiffy Pop missed a MAJOR opportunity here!

    I wanted a couple of bags of popcorn for my air popper and searched high and low in the snack section of Wally's World. Nada. Only by chance (and needing a few more items) did I think to search in...the bean section. Yup, nestled amongst the frijoles of various shapes and varieties were the popcorn "beans." Love it!
  8. And don't forget that if it's a US dish, then they probably bought it outright. Smells fishy to me...
  9. We had solar installed about 8 years ago and have been very happy with it (love those low bills!). While our bills have usually been at or near the minimum with the configuration we have, we've been planning to install a few a/c splits and that will up our usage...time to add another inverter and solar panels. I contacted Opiere and set up an appointment with Nyah Walters. Wow! He was knowledgeable, professional, and actually fun to deal with. We pretty much knew what we wanted before we even met up, but it was nice to not feel pressured. Long story short, the crew came--every bit as professional as you could hope for--the setup was installed and we're very happy campers. Our property was left immaculately clean afterwards. If you're considering having solar, I very highly recommend Opiere. www.opiere.com ventasa@opiere.com 331 400 2646 (FWIW, no, we don't get anything for giving them a plug. It's just nice to be able to give positive reviews for companies that truly deserve them.)
  10. Thanks so much for the quick answer! You just saved me a trip to TELMEX.
  11. When you first got your modem from TELMEX, was there a disk with it?
  12. Does have a recommendation for a local shop that might be able to do a simple (I hope) repair on a Thule bike carrier? Long story short, the wind up cable on one side never worked properly when we bought it. It looks like there are actually two cables and one has crossed over another. Since this was shipped from the US, it would cost more to send it back than it's worth. Any recommendations would be much appreciated! TYVMIA.
  13. There are plenty of places to find scooters. I'm on my second Italika. No, it's not the high end, but I knew that when I bought them. The first one lasted nearly 4 years before I "upgraded"' and the second one is now about 4 years old, too. I ALWAYS (even before it was the law) wear a bright vest and helmet, along with an identification anklet. It probably makes me an easier target, but at least they'll find the body faster. On a more serious note, they're not bad scooters. but you have to be careful here. While a car gives you more protection, I never have to worry about traffic or finding somewhere to park. It's a trade-off.
