  1. Link is not working for me -- I am using Safari v.13.0.01 My screen shows: {"error":{"code":"EC-4008","requestId":"28ff1580-e6ac-11e9-c000-57c79e60ab74"}}
  2. For your advice to work, users must also navigate to "more search options" and select "find results that contain all of my search term words" or "find results in content titles only". Otherwise, they get hundreds of results that are not related to Mexican citizenship.
  3. Sorry, the Cross Border Express web site only has advice for foreigners who are checking into Mexico, and provides no instructions for foreign residents who want to properly check out of Mexico.
  4. You can try contacting Chef Amador Valdez at the Smoke House Restaurant and Bar, Carretera Poiniente 520, west Ajijic. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and may be able to help answer your questions.
  5. Having a .pdf copy of the FMM forma migratoria múltiple is still useful -- that way you can fill in the blanks ahead of time (when you're not in such a rush) and copy the information over to the official form at the airport or border crossing. Spencer McMullen kindly posted the new form on his chapalalaw.com web site. - - - - - - - - Changes to common immigration forms effective August 1, 2018 Spencer’s Office SC, Abogados http://bit.ly/2y1kSOT
  6. I'm in far east Riberas -- my Telecable internet has been down Fri. July 19 and Sat. July 20. TV and telephone are working fine.
  7. Some folks like to "stir the pot". Others like to go further and both create the pot and stir it up, all by themselves.
  8. I would add this reminder from the article -- that despite whether emissions tests are or are not underway, ". . . que cuando se tiene un auto afinado . . . que se cumple la responsabilidad de contar con un vehículo." (Maintaining a well-tuned car is part of the responsibility of owning a vehicle.)
  9. The original poster may be referring to messages from the Chapala Town Facebook Group. It's a closed group, so I'm attaching a screenshot below.
  10. Mosquitoes' wings make an annoying buzz or whining sound whenever they fly. Both male and female mosquitoes buzz, since they both have wings. The buzz of female mosquitoes makes males want to mate with them. Some people say that mosquitoes which buzz don't bite. Well, that's true. As long as they're buzzing, they're flying, so they won't bite you. But as soon as they land, look out! Why Mosquitoes Buzz in Your Ears http://www.mosquitoreviews.com/mosquitoes-buzz-ears.html
  11. Many folks use an immigration specialist for this, others do it themselves. Here are two references: Getting Permission to Leave Mexico While Your Resident Card is Being Processed From: Two Expats Mexico blog http://bit.ly/2WnHCaA How to Get an Exit Permit from Mexico While Your Temporary Residency is Pending From: Hippie in Heels blog http://bit.ly/2wz47tu
  12. JM Mechanica Automotriz Guadalajara - El Salto Highway 35 Col. La Ermita, El Salto, Jal. 33-3689-7312 33-3904-4036 received my inspection sticker there on 4 May 2019
  13. Now you've really done it . . . started a whole new controversy about whether it's supposed to be "Katmandu" or "Kathmandu"!
  14. The CURP Clave Única de Registro de Población program is used to manage access to government services in Mexico. A valid CURP is needed to get a driver's license, register a vehicle, apply for employment, file taxes, start a business, open a bank account, use government healthcare services, obtain government-sponsored senior discounts, and for many other matters. When the program began the CURP document was a wallet-sized card. The format has now changed and today the CURP document is a letter-sized certificate, not a card.
  15. Everyday Mindfulness Exploring mindfulness in daily life through readings and practice Lake Chapala Society Mondays 10:00-11:30 a.m. Open to the Members and Associates Activity Contact: Barbara Hildt 376- 766-4164 barbarahildt@gmail.com
  16. Not everyone reads the Guadalajara Reporter so here's a recent item. Getting a nod from the Culinary Arts Society of Ajijic indicates the consistency at Janelle’s Garden Restaurant is more reliable than ever.
  17. On 28 March 2019 glws7777 said: " . . . I do know that they have an interest in keeping some coverage for Mexico, so they may always have some channels available here, but this is just an educated guess based on my conversations with several Shaw Representatives that we work under . . ." I am curious -- how in the world can Shaw Communications "have an interest in keeping some coverage for Mexico" when the terms of their service agreement state the following? Restrictions. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) the services will only be provided to you in Canada; (b) the service address associated with your account is located in Canada; (c) . . .
  18. I went to Veloz Automotiz last year and even though they could not solve my problem a worker got into his car and with me following behind personally escorted me to another shop in town that made the repair. Any business that goes out of their way to help customers even though there is nothing in it for them gets an A+ rating in my book.
  19. Out on the open road, two lane highways with adequate shoulders are often treated as three-lane highways. Oncoming vehicles will pass slower traffic coming at you down the center of the road and expect you to drive onto the shoulder to allow them to pass. If this is your first time out that will take some getting used to.
  20. Here is the link on the Mexico government portal used to begin the process for filing a change of address notification: https://www.gob.mx/tramites/ficha/notificacion-de-cambios-al-inm-por-parte-de-extranjeros-residentes/INM829 Plus, you don't need to "pick up a piece of paper from them in advance"; you can write your own letter instead. A sample form letter is displayed below.
  21. I saw this advertisement in the local weekly newspaper Semanario Laguna (copies, scanner, enlargements . . .). Perhaps they can help.
  22. Having this feature (ignoring a user) makes the web board much more enjoyable for me . . .
  23. For many folks 1/2 million+ US dollars is not a small investment . . . "To qualify for a Golden Visa, applicants need to make a minimum investment of at least EUR 500,000 in Portuguese real estate."
  24. Getting through lines (or getting through traffic lights, or getting through life) as fast as humanly possible is not a part of the culture in every part of the world.
  25. For 420 pesos you receive an after-market product key and instructions for downloading and installing Windows 10 from Microsoft. Third-party product keys don't always work, and getting technical help or a refund from the seller can sometimes be a problem.
