  1. Looking for someone to do some maintenance on a small, two-tier fountain in our patio that has not been used in a while. Need a new tubes, a plug for the drain, check out the motor...that sort of thing. Any suggestions? Gracias.
  2. The "brood x" cicadas in the US is a 17-year cycle emergence and will only do so in the NE states up north. The rainbirds here are yearly and different. Their sound is like a high-pitched electrical hum (if that makes any sense). Haven't heard them yet here in upper Ajijic.
  3. For those on Facebook, I recommend the group "Chapala Health Talk." It has been an excellent resource for current info. They have been posting daily updates about vaccine availability (or lack thereof), government announcements/statistics, and daily status on the state of cases lakeside. For those not on Facebook, I'm sure as soon as there's something official, someone will post it here. But all indications now are there is no info on the when or the where for a second shot. Except to say that when it is offered, it is reported that it will only be for those who have received the first shot. Those who missed the first shot will not be included in this round.
  4. Here's an update on getting my screen repaired. Took my Samsung Galaxy to "Fix Mobile" a block down from the Chapala bus station on Calle Miguel Martínez (phone 33 2454 1857). Brought it in at 10:30am and it was ready by 4pm. A little hole in the wall store, but they did a good job. S&F Telcel across from the Ajijic Telmex office could do it, but it would not be ready until late tomorrow. Stopped at Telcel in Centro Luguna to inquire and they DO repair certain phones. But not Samsung. I did not find out which they did repair. So, there you go. Problem solved. Thanks to everyone for playing.
  5. They repair cracked screens there in the Telcel at Centro Laguna?
  6. Need to have the cracked screen on my Samsung Galaxy cellphone replaced. Is there anyone lakeside that can do this same-day? Gracias.
  7. Yes. Make sure to bring the INAPAM card for the discount (50%). I did this last month at Bancomer to renew my license. Be sure to know the account number and the exact amount to be paid!! The bank was not sure and they leave it to the customer to tell them. Also be sure to write your name - exactly as it appears on your license - on the receipt from the bank.
  8. Success! Chapala driver's licence office open for business as usual. Went to my appointment and was out with a new license in 20 minutes. Was not questioned about my age and there was another person ahead of me who was clearly over 60.
  9. Thanks. I'll give it a shot on Monday morning and let you know.
  10. Anyone know how long you can drive with an expired chofer license? Expires next week and had an appointment to renew on Monday in Chapala. But if office is closed due to latest lockdown, won't be able to renew. Trying to plan in advance. Gracias.
  11. Has anyone had experience paying for their driver's license renewal through the Bancomer account? Any problems with the Chapala office accepting the receipt when you have gone to renew? Gracias.
  12. I had a PCR test on Dec 23 at San Antonio hospital emergency room on the advice of my doctor. Cost was $6500 pesos and results take 48 hours to receive. You can either have them emailed to you or pick up a paper copy at the hospital.
