    Jocotopeckers forum died with it's founder several years ago. Westenders, a poor replacement also faded from view. There are plumbers in SJC, who, with a large enough group of pack mules might reach us....but thanks for your knowledgeable and helpful response.

    Westenders at Lake Chapala is an active, vibrant, popular facebook group. Really. 😊

    Thin set mortar is available at nearly every hardware store, you are gluing tile? Show them what you are doiing and ask for the special notched trowel to appy it. Silicone glue is more difficult. Do you mean silicone caulking, as in a tube, or silicone glue, which we purchased by accident, it is used in crafts like scrapbooking, where you want a long drying time to be able place objects about. This is available in big grocery stores or stationery stores.

    THANKS Chillin! I'm doing mosaic rocks with children.

     I think the problem related to the above comments is that you people come down here and expect to be cheated by Mexicans.  That is not the proper attitude.  Try smiling and saying hello to them when they are checking you out and I am sure you will see a difference.

    Well, WONDERFUL for YOU, Arroyos,  that you have not been cheated all the time you have lived here. But to say that ''I think the problem related to the above comments is that YOU PEOPLE come down here and expect to be cheated by Mexicans'' minimizes the reality that MANY others have dealt with.

    It is NOT that we ''expect'' to be cheated by Mexicans. Not at ALL. In my few years experience here, the vast majority of Mexican people do NOT cheat us,  and treat us with the same respect with which we treat them.

    BUT...there are DEFINITELY exceptions to that hope...and your sanctimonious post does not change that. Cheating exists. Clearly. And it is incumbent on us all to...simply...be aware...so PLEASE...don't ''preach'' to us...WE have been here for a long time too 😉
