  1. Birds used to fly into my picture window so I had it framed and replaced with four small windows. Looks fine & cheaper
  2. Max Eclipse time is more like 7:47 not 6:47 ..........no?
  3. CNN International in English 24 hours daily plus Bloomberg on Dish TV 237 pesos monthly. Many other English Station plus Fox Sports ESPN and more. They have a booth at Soreanos Spanish CNN is also included in the 237 peso package. It's the step above the basic Dish service.
  4. Walmart. Also Soriano -- Inflateable $9,999 pesos - looks and works great
  5. I've heard that there are actually more Canadians here but for less than 6 months so they don't lose there medical benefits - and thus are not counted as permanent. Americans keep their benefits forever no matter for how long or where they live
  6. Look to me like it's Canadians who saw the largest increase in Deaths. I wonder why?
  7. Ugly? Go out to the statue -- turn around -- and get a different view of Chapala. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. I think it's BEAUTIFUL
  8. If you are a Canadian you are not a Gringo. Sorry. Canuck. Shop somewhere else. Lots of Canadians don't like American businesses. Go to Copels. They pay less
  9. could be the altitude. Try the beach for a week. If it improves, that's what it is. I go every few weeks and I am fine.
  10. Ck GDL Reporter my bad its a Mass not a Mem Service
  11. Don't know what to do. There is this big object over my casa. It appeared out of the lake. Now there is a beam drawing to it. Don't know what to do. They are sitting down for dinner. Think I'm the main course. Don't know what to do. Will broadcast as long as I can. Now I am
  12. a truly Great Dr. There is --- according to the GDL Reporter --- another Memorial Service this Thurs @ Francisco Church ( wherever that is ) in Chapala this Thurs ( no time given ) I'll be there if I can fid the time & place .......
  13. Why are you concerned? GEEZE. Just enjoy paying cash. This is a cash country. You have to have better things to do in life than to complain about stupid stuff. If you are old enough to move here you would think you are old enough to figure this out
  14. Polls close in East Coast US by 8pm EST --- that's 7 pm here. American Legion is open until then so most results should be already in by 8 01 pm here. Big party in Mexico City too
  15. Weather Underground reported a 4 degree Centigrade reading this morning (that's 39 Faren). any other patio readings ?
  16. Great stats! Thanks Bill. We are 100 plus in cost of living and 33 in quality of life. Not bad. The most interesting stat is Korea is the safest place in the world to live. But I bet this was published prior to the rash of Korean Samsung Phones exploding
  17. NOB? Ah must be North of Border. Crime here is less than Chicago but the same as Camada
  18. Now a hurricane but Just wind tomorrow Wed unrelated rain
  19. Image seems to concur with your prediction. But again the 5am advisory says it will move east then north. One of us will probably be right
  20. National Hurricane Ctr has upgraded it to a tropical storm and given it a name--Newton. They say it's headed east toward us.......
  21. There are a couple of good schools run by Mexicans. Help the local businesses. Forever English is pretty good in downtown Chapala. One day class one day computer. My help has been there for several months and are doing ok.
  22. Interesting radar image of rain band. It stretches from Gulf to the Pacific. Eye will hit Veracruz tomorrow but bands extend 125 miles outward . Headed our way at 8 mph . Top winds of 60mph are not expected to increase and should subside as it moves inland but we may get a wet weekend .
  23. Mex Weather Service reported 7 in (180 mm) rain last 24hrs in Chiapas with center of Earl now back over open water headed to Veracruz. Plane from US headed out to investigate later today. Looks like a wet one
  24. Having arrived here from Belize and having family & friends there I follow the weather maps there - and here - pretty closely. The answer is YES. We should get some significan rain here Sunday starting around 11 am
  25. They are located next to Walmart but they deliver to Chapala in 30 minutes. They have been here for years -- Most of their customers are Mexicans. They provide jobs to many locals. Once you order they capture your phone number on their caller ID so the next time you call they know where to deliver. Always fresh ingredients. Truly a well run operation
