    Need budget beach rental

    Check out Cuyutlan. If you like it google Cuyutlan Properties for contact information. Talk to Mac. You might get something within a block or two of the beach for that budget.

    Selling car in Houston

    I have used, in the past, Texas Auto Direct, to buy and sell vehicles. www.texasdirectauto.com As I recall they are very close to the airport and a short cab ride. Predicated upon them not having moved of course.

    Now I've Seen it All...........

    Seems to me if you are allergic to dogs take an allergy shot. If my dog is elegible to be on a plane or a restaurant terrace so be it. Mine is a therapy dog regularly visiting hospitals and old folks. If you`re allergic to flowers whatcha going to do - get rid of all the trees and flowers

    Has anyone bought a car, or know about

    There are several "curbers" selling used cars. They find a nice looking used car from across the country and sell it usually without guarantee and without mechanical inspection. Ergo, you would need the car inspected by a mechanic you know and trust. They often have out of state plates so you need to know if they will be the ones obtaining same for you. That plating process is done in Guadalajara, most get there by 5 am and spend the better part of the day. In my opinion used cars in Mexico do not have a history of service maintenance and are driven hard and put away wet. And if anyone suggests the tianguis in Guadalajara, well let's just say that in the opinion of most - not advisable. I like visiting S/S Auto to see what they may have as often they will have something driven by an americano with a complete service record. Possibly a good car still under warranty comes available. Like anything else it depends on what you want to spend which is inversely proportional to quality.

    Television options

    I have used the services of barcelonaman and can highly recommend his time and advice. Anyone who thinks this service doesn't work is simply uninformed. I get great tv thanks to him and appreciate his efforts to assist.

    Vi Lu Ma Experience

    Well bottom line is you want someone else to make a screen door. And I am happy to agree with Cedros and las salvias alumino. Of course where you live will be relative but if in the west end these guys are good.

    Taco Bell voted best restaurant in the country

    Can`t be the best in the country since we don`t have any in Mexico. They tried twice I believe to make a go of it in Mexico but failed.

    AUTO SERVICING/EMISSION TEST

    Wow, you have a very cynical friend. The equipment is connected to the main government office in Guadalajara that deals with emissions, no connection no sticker. I paid 350 pesos in Guadalajara last week. You`ll here lots of crap about bribes and `this is Mexico` from negative people who claim to be realists.

    Furniture stores

    The Palliser Brand made in Canada is available at the furniture store immediately east of Sunrise Cafe in San Antonio Tlay. Lesser quality but made in Mexico are found at the furniture store on the n/e corner of Rio Bravo and the Carretera. Sometimes the Classifieds on this board yields results.

    Recommendation for basic auto insurance.

    I for one would appreciate a person taking the time to suggest they had less than a pleasant experience or a cautionary advisement. I am neither judge nor jury and frankly don`t need nor care nor want to hear the details. Just my pesos worth.
