  1. I got my mail there this morning at about 9:30. SunFan
  2. I'd say the chances of that happening are about the same as Telmex installing fiber. SunFan
  3. I know Terry Vidal, the Exec Director at LCS, uses the seeds. Swears by them. Could you drop them off at the office for him? SunFan
  4. Chris/Harry If you haven't already done it check all the animal shelters Lakeside. You never know what you might find. We were looking for a couple of mutts - MSDs and ended up unknowingly with what the Vet tells us are a purebred Beagle and an Australian Cattle Dog puppy. Anyone want an Australian Cattle Dog puppy....my ankles are raw and my shoulder hurts from throwing balls? LOL SunFan
  5. Thank you Harry for all your efforts on behalf of the Lakeside community. SunFan
  6. With the water level so high what's happening with sewers and septic systems on lakefront properties? SunFan
  7. Our Frac withholds services and adds interest to outstanding maintenance fees. Of course the issue is when can you collect. Very often its only on the sale of the property (if the Frac is consulted) In the case of land it can be held for generations. With land as well withholding services is meaningless Mexican courts limit collection of unpaid fees to a maximum of 2 years. Balance that with the legal cost of collection or liens. We've found the best method of handling morosos is attention to persistent collection contact. SunFan
  8. In Toronto I used to actually BUY water hyacinth and water lettuce each spring for my Koi ponds. SunFan
  9. Alan there are almost 300 homes in Chula Vista. If 3,500 pesos per home were an average predial that's the million pesos to the Chapala treasury right there. SunFan
  10. I live in Chula Vista. That Frac, like many others here at Lakeside, provide through homeowner maintenance fees their own street lighting, water, road maintenance and landscaping. In exchange for our property taxes Chapala provides Policing and of course all the other services to be found at City hall like building permits. I estimate conservatively that Chula Vista residents send over a million pesos a year to the Chapala coffers for essentially no services. Add to that what the 20 or so other Lakeside Fracs contribute and one indeed wonders why basic street maintenance can't be accomplished. SunFan
  11. I saw an ambiance pick up another whacko scooter driver around noon today at the foot of Chula Vista. No charges laid. SunFan
  12. She hasn't moved. I was there just two days ago. SunFan
  13. They started in early August. Course you can always stay with good old reliable Telmex. SunFan
  14. Its the DIF (Jalisco) card you use not the INAPAM (federal) SunFan
  15. With all due respect I think the Europeans are leading and the U.S.A. is catching up.
  16. Hey no problema. i have no inclination to approach, catch, fondle, keep, eat, sell or transport a snake. SunFan
  17. It's that time again. I got three years out of this blanket until a Coatamundi decided to walk across the blanket last week at 3 AM and shredded it in two trying to claw its way out. Any advice on who locally has the best price and service theses days for a replacement? TIA SunFan
  18. We just installed an induction cook-top two months ago and we love it. Far less electricity used than resistance burners. no waste heat, just a wipe cleans up spills and a true simmer. Prices have been dropping recently and induction is now on par with good quality gas ranges and cook-tops SunFan
  19. 50 year old text books are probably of no value today. Ask the Garbage Truck guys how they recycle paper and cardboard. SunFan
  20. Tom again my appreciation for all the hard work you've put into this project. Your professional calm and dedication in the face of criticism was most impressive. I see everyone's jumping on the bandwagon now that there is no risk. SunFan
  21. This is a wonderful learning experience for Mexican kids. I understand the turnout is very high every week. My congratulations to Roberto and Wayne. SunFan
  22. They're sold in Paz. A little over 300 pesos for a twelve pack. Not a bad smoke and as you said still hand made. SunFan
