  1. The big users of electricity are any sort of pump, the fridge and freezer and anything that heats by electricity.

    Do you have a pool pump that runs many hours a day?

    A pressurized water system for the house and irrigation?

    An old model fridge or freezer?

    I have a Kill-a-Watt device that measures usage, voltage etc. by device (eg. the fridge). PM me if you want to stop by and pick it up.

  2. This reminds me of our first exploratory trip to lakeside  8 years ago. We flew Aeromexico though Mexico City.

    When we unpacked at the Neuva Posada that evening I discovered a video camera I placed in checked luggage was missing. I commented to my wife that at least they didn't get my laptop that was in the same suitcase.

    They got the laptop on our return flight 7 days later.

    I was told that in Mexico, the dealers have one price and that they do not give discounts. Am I an expert on the subject?  Heck no. I was thinking that in another year or so that I would buy another car. WAS I WRONG?

    That's been my experience. One dealer price. No discounts (well they may throw in floor mats). Same price at all dealers. You must have the car serviced at the dealer you bought the car from or the warranty is voided.

    How's that for consumer protection!

    Please tell me if I'm missing something but how can a satellite broadcasting a unidirectional signal receive any information about the receivers that are picking u the signal?

    What does "geo-location" have to do with the transmission/reception process?

    TIA

    Still not answering my question. No internet connection, no phone calls, no smoke signals, just the receiver sitting there picking up the satellite broadcast. I know of no way Shaw knows where your receiver is.

    Geo-location. You are connected, after all, to a satellite, and that satellite software shows a list of every connected device.

    Yes. Just got response from LCS that this was a "private invitation event" and not publicized. Exactly what I thought. One less renewal for LCS next time around. Too much elitism for me.

    The LCS Exec Director was asked on Weds. by the Mayor's office to assemble "community leaders" for a presentation on Friday on his plans for renovating the highway and intersections in Ajijic.

    Dale Palfrey was there so there should be a Guad reporter write-up.

    The same presentation will be given to a wider audience next week.

    If that's elitism so be it.
