  1. this is how they look after 5 coats. the bridges that is
  2. 1. The repaving of the Ajijic carretera is a federal project...no local input 2. This morning Hector, Bob Howe and I celebrated the completion of the malecon bridges maintenance. The Garden Guild was invited, but, cited Covid concerns. Fotos to follow. 3 The original wood was supplied by the Lakeside Garden Guild. Other materials were supplied by Inside Lakeside Hosted by Bob Howe, and Chapala Sunrise Rotary. The labor was supplied by the municipality. This to the best of my recollection and the sign.
  3. Ian make a donation and we will show you the receipts?
  4. the workers are collecting for their labor only. We are trying to raise the money for the materials.
  5. I have to apologize again to Bob Howe. He reminds me that the followers of his board did in fact contribute to the bridge project. My apology.... Sorry Bob, no slight intended! Just an old man's failing memory. You are of course invited to a celebratory foto wednesday. Time to follow.
  6. Ian, your expertise and effort are welcome . Why don't you start on the benches. We consulted an engineer whose career is paints and who knows the Rosa Morena wood used in the bridges. The Garden Guild spent 80k pesos for just the wood . The materials being used are as recommended by the engineer. Waiting for the government to do it was why the bridges were in danger of people going through 3 years ago. Good luck with that. I am sure the new regime will welcome your advice. I am a Mexican citizen and after several million pesos in projects they only listen to me if I am bringing something to the table. But I wish you well!
  7. You are right, Bob Howe was a big part of getting the benches on the malecon repaired and painted. I meant no disrespect to my friend! The bridges were rebuilt after many years of neglect, by the Garden Guild. I DONT GET INVOLVED IN SCAMS! I have been engaged in public service projects in Ajijic for many years which is well known! The 8k pesos is the price for sand paper, stain and marine varnish.
  8. Chapala EXPAT Liaison Published by Harry Bublin · JSussthreeum now · Several years ago the Garden Guild funded the rebuilding of the Ajijic Malecon Bridges. Today they need maintenance. In the picture, Tony Carreo who is unemployed is doing the work with Jose Belec. They will have a tip jar. Their drinks and meals are taken care of by Manix Restaurant. They will need cash for their families. You contribution will do more good than you can ever imagine. Now to the materials. We need eight thousand pesos for the materials to keep these bridges in top shape. If you'd like to see these two bridges maintained, you can send dollars to ms1cb@yahoo.com at paypal. Always say sending money to a friend to avoid service charges. If you would like to contribute pesos, you can put it in an envelope marked MALECON and drop off at Manix restaurant, #57 Ocampo, Ajijic 331 065 0725. Dad Harry has already contributed the first thousand pesos so we are off to a good start. We would like to have the work finished by wednesday so thank you all in advance! Your friend Hector España Ramos
  9. On behalf of Mayor Moises Anaya, I would like to express the Mexican community's condolences to the American people and all those who lost loved ones on 9/11. And in this terrible tragedy, all the amazing heroes who ran into danger and gave their lives to save others, we salute your example! Our prayers are with them and all who suffer today! Your friend Hector España Ramos
  10. rules are constantly changing, but, I know many who went to Guadalajara for shots.
  11. wouldn't it be better to block trolls? Take away their audience and fold.
  12. Our doctor told us since we got Sinvac a Phizer(SP?) booster would be better
  13. Bravo Ajijicitos! Of the 13 proposals received for murals, five original inhabitants of Ajijic were winners. They are Leonardo González -son of the painter Efrén González-, Jesús Eduardo López -son of the painter Jesús López Vega-, Miguel Ángel Márquez, Francisco José Pérez and Orlando Solano.

  14. It is very unusual for average Mexicans to stand up to the rich due to the long history of reprisal for such bravery. The bravery of these people is poorly understood and appreciated!
  15. the building on the Ajijic pier brought much angst to the local residents. The rich man's answer was that the building was put together with screws and not nales so therefore NOT a permanent structure. It is good to be rich and have rich friends. The municipality has shown fear of the voters by not issuing business licenses at that location, lately.
  16. All you have to do is view Google Maps of the lake shoreline. Where there are rectangular outcroppings into the shoreline, it is painfully obvious how much natural shoreline has been stolen. 90 degree angles do not exist in nature only man made..
  17. I don't know, but, like everything else it is a lie that tRump had anything to do with Project Warp Speed. It is surprising that he could remember the 3 work phrase. I hope this isn't too political just stating the facts as I see them to a prior post.
  18. Of course I am passing this along to Hector and the gov. The White House is working on a plan to start offering Covid-19 vaccine boosters to some Americans as early as October. With a stockpile of at least 100 million doses at the ready, the first boosters are likely to go to nursing home residents and health care workers, followed by other older people. Officials envision giving people a third dose of the same vaccine that they originally received. Scientists are still debating whether the extra shots are needed, but administration officials said they could not afford to wait to figure out the logistics of providing boosters to millions of people. This week, the F.D.A. authorized third doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for certain people with weakened immune systems and the C.D.C. recommended them.
  19. DIF Ajijic is starting a food program for the elderly. handicapped, poor... This article is from Laguna Seminario Newspaper, one of our best, Sofía Medeles (Ajijic, Jal.) - Members of the Little Chapel by the Lake Presbyterian Church –located in Riberas del Pilar-, in conjunction with the San Antonio SA Children's Association, invite people to collaborate in the preparation and distribution of food, as part of the activities of the new community dining room in DIF Ajijic. The proposal is for students who are in service, as well as for people who like to join in supporting. The preparation of the food is done in Little Chapel by the Lake –which covers the three days of the dining room, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday- and the distribution is in Ajijic, as the starting point of the delegation's DIF. For more information, or to join the volunteer service, call 33 1744 5812.
  20. reports are the young people are lining up for the shots.
