  1. Who donated trucks? Did they go specifically to the police only? Did they donate gasoline and tires too? Are these new or used trucks? If the police don't have people to man them could one or two be rerouted to recycling pickup if the recycling group found a way to pay the drivers/workers?
  2. Valerie Rhoda is an excellent counselor but she does groups and has a wide path thru town. I wouldn't use her for anything other than grief or caretaker support. Hope you find adequate counsel.
  3. At just about any of the materials yards you just ask and if they haven't got it on site they bring it in. Or a better way might be to ask a small business person who has access to that type of product but ordinarily doesn't stock it. I would talk with Elvis at the wood lumber shop on the lateral west of 5th de Feb just across from Waffle house. The lateral is south of the CArreterra and you get on it at Fonda restaurant heading west Elvis is down almost to the end. Open garage door with wood stacked inside. He brings in product from his family store in Joco. Runs this shop. Could probably get it cut for you. It is important to patronize the small businesses or they are going to go away fairly fast.
  4. Go to the meeting. And when given information like that for the licenses recognize it as sketchy but specific enough to get you started. Then just go during business hours and find out for yourself. People online are generally hesitant to give specifics because if one item is off in their answer it gets pointed out and things can go nasty. Just figure things out for yourself given a starting point. Or save yourself the aggravation and go with one of the dozens of 'facilitators' into Guad and get it done on your time table and without a lot of hassle.
  5. Please find a way to archive these very old thread so this doesn't happen. It is not that hard. Old information is worse than wrong information in some cases.
  6. That is rush hour at the airport. Packed and busy. YES it can take just that long.
  7. I just don't hear any of it anymore, praise or condemnation, since nothing changes. For less than $200 US a year in property taxes I figure I buy some group of 4 a nice dinner at in some conference city where they contract for municipal services we don't want or need. What I get tired of is the whining. Add $275 more to your tax bill and then spend it on your own street fixing potholes lots of guys know how to do that work. Or for $100 pesos a week hire a neighbor kid to put clean bags in the abandoned wastecans on poles on your street and they can take them ut on trash day too. That was another poorly executed cleanup plan with no funding. My next expenditure on my street is going to be painting the poles grey or brown over the "art" kittie cat faces or butterflies or bows from a couple years back art effort. Those things look terrible all weathered. I got tired of being disappointed.
  8. There are companies which do this as a business. Find some Guadalajara facebook pages like MexPatGuadalajara and ask there. It would be a topic at this time of year as the medical students come in and leave. It is not usual in the Lake Chapala area to have to provide this but is regular business elsewhere.
  9. Africa, India, etc... know full well that any effort made by the 1st world is doomed by the continued growth of the 3rd world. Population and pollution. Then China who has no worries and owns the African continent and soon the world.....
  10. And they disintegrate and rip apart quickly but are not recyclable and go straight to trash piles.
  11. Why? It doesn't matter which airline. We fly many and to lots of different places. We don't pay tourist tax to Mexico because we are not tourists. Every airline has respected the request to refund the tax.
  12. You can pay a boy to bring it to you. A neighbor used to do that. Kid did it in the morning before he went to afternoon session school.
  13. We send a letter to the airline customer service when we return from each trip. Photo of each persons ticket, boarding pass stub and INM card plus our passport. We get refunded every time.
  14. Wouldn't you suppose that the project simply bought the use of the Wyndham name like the el Dorado property did with Radisson.
  15. Moved, changed, resurrected...all reasons to have the administrator archive posts older than say a year. You can still get the old info just prevents misunderstandings. That said the Chapala Government Facebook pages are very informative. Or the newspaper. Yes many say - oh my privacy etc... well yes, maybe, probably. However "they" already know all that info about you.
