  1. Wow, a lot of griping by people, assume both from USA and Canada. I have often heard it said, "if you want something done, do it yourself". Sounds like you bunch should get your Mexican citizenship and then run for office and fix all the problems around this area.
  2. My barber asks me everytime I go. I am sure he remembers but just wants to confirm.
  3. Friends who also have a Mexican license expiring soon told me that the office in Chapala will be open again as of Monday, 15 June.
  4. Would you be willing to share the cost for the set of hearing aids? Thanks.
  5. Teresa who works in the O'Rourke office on the Carretera, right across from Walmart. We have had our car and home insurance with her for many years. Our car insurance actually went down last year.
  6. There is a new Chopo lab in Riberas; I am not aware of the exact number. Even though Isilab is called such, the reports come from Chopo. I can get a test at 8am in the morning and have the results by 7 or 8pm the same day.
  7. I am sure you do. But my point was that we should stop being lazy and re-read what we have typed before we post it. Maybe I am just old-fashioned.
  8. You are the second person today on this site that did not proof read their material before posting. "Monet" - think you meant "Money".
  9. I notice, not only on this site, but on Facebook, that many people fail to check their typing before they post something. In your topic line you said "Began", whereas I think you meant "Begun". Then you go on to say "bumber to bumber" instead of "bumper to bumper". Forgive me for being picky, but I see more and more of this all the time.
  10. I got 16.5 Canadian for a Canadian cheque cashed at Intercam. I was very happy with the rate, and overall I am happy with Intercam Banco.
  11. I use Farmacia Similares for all my generic drugs and have never had any problems. On Mondays they give you a 25% discount on your purchases. Non generic I use Farmacia Guadalajara.
  12. We had our roof done over the past two days. Our contractor was Juan Gutierrez and we have used him for major and minor jobs at our house. His prices are very reasonable. For the new part of our roof which he did using both membrane and impermebilizante, for 64m2, he charged 57 per m2, a total of $3648 pesos. His phone number is 333-727-0071.
  13. Sounds like he was a wonderful man. May he rest in peace.
  14. I seem to remember reading somewhere that it cannot be grown here. Possibly needs cold nights like we have up north for daffodils and tulips.
  15. I am an expat and must say I am impressed, now that they have got major portions through Chapala with trees and street lights. It looks very nice and is being used by many cyclists. Can't wait to see the rest once it is finished. The one thing that disturbs me is all the cars that park on the bike path through the village of Ajijic. The Chapala Transito could make a fortune here if they gave out tickets.
  16. Have not tried this yet, but there were many comments about this a few months back. It said all you do is go where you went before with your ID and CURP and you will get free service. Not sure whether that sure stands now, but why not try and see what happens. I have Seguro Popular, and if I need service, I will go to the Chapala office (can't remember the street name) and see what happens. I usually just go there for flu shots every year.
  17. Would you rather have Tapatios coming here and infecting the population at Lakeside. Never mind what the federal government says; what the municipality is doing is the right thing, and if they have to, let them fight it out with the federal government.
  18. When we had our house built in the Raquet Club, our builder recommended getting a treatment plant, which, once put in the ground, would never need to be opened. The waste was treated by biological material and found it's way to the ground via some sort of weeping tile structure. As far as I know, it came from GDL.
  19. Why does not the Federal government step up to the plate and give the municipalities the authority for what they are doing. I for one, support it, and I know many others do as well.
  20. For me it has been definitely hotter this year than others, especially in February, March and this month. I would say it is climate change. No snarky remarks needed.
  21. Anyone who has lived here any length of time will know that Mexicans pronounce the letter "v" as we Americans/Canadians/English speaking people pronounce the letter "b".
  22. I have seen much discussion on Facebook about this issue. The majority of people are paying their maids full salary to stay at home. I saw one lady say she never realized how much work her maid actually did and gave her a raise.
  23. I am sure that those of us over 60 and live alone will not be put in jail or fined, if they are stopped by the authorities when going out for essentials.
