  1. You are correct adolphsj. Because I use SHAW, twice every year I dread when change changes occur. My SHAW receiver tells me the time on the East Coast. It was purchased in Toronto so it is already one hour off. Now it will be two hours off. Dinner will be one hour earlier, and from and from 9 pm to 10 pm there is nothing I would normally watch on TV. Just another sacrifice for living in paradise.
  2. Despite a limited water supply, a weak electrical grid, and over crowded roads the construction of large retirement and other complexes goes on. Have you been out west and checked this out recently?
  3. There are no colleges of Podiatry medicine in Mexico, hence there are no Podiatrist in Mexico. This according to my medical doctor. There are people, and some Orthopedic doctors who specialize in feet who can help you.
  4. Pumps frequently break and with the higher demand of water Ajijic SIMAPA rotates the supply of water to various sections. Here is Upper Ajijic where I am we frequently do not receives sufficient and have to call for the trucks. This is nothing new. It happens every year.
  5. Presumably the one in front of Steren has something to do with the Walmart mess. I went through there today and it was not yet operating.
  6. For the past almost 18 years my Telmex bill always comes on the first few days of the month. Yes, sometimes it goes astray. No big deal I just go in wherever I am currently paying, give them my number and pay. My bill is always $389.
  7. I have a blue waterlily that I would like to find a home for. In either 2004 or 2005 I purchased a very large maceta and a blue waterlily from the vivero just east of the Telmex office. That vivero has now been closed for a few years, although they still grow vegetables for the market. The maceta (my fish pond) happily had goldfish and the waterlilly until recently. The pot has a crack that cannot be repaired hence the need to find a home for the lily. I leave in upper Ajijic if you would like to come with a bucket, or largish plastic tub I will give you the lily.
  8. I also loved it. Reminds me when I drove down in 2003 with my cat. Never regretted the move.
  9. Jubilacion, did you get your form in Mexico by mail?
  10. This is addressed to any of you locals who pay income tax on your social security benefits. I am curious if anyone has received their income tax information, Form 2019 via mail yet?
  11. I sent a $5000 dollar check as a wedding present several months back and IShop never blinked.
  12. She went back in the afternoon and it was business as normal. Just a bad dream.
  13. Earlier today a friend was denied access to Multiva because she is over 60. Our local charity banks with Multiva and as the President she wanted to make a deposit. They were adamant and would not let her in the bank. My poor understanding of the rules was that even during the previous month restriction we could go to the banks? Certain now this should be permitted.
  14. I put my house phone, my cell phone as well as my two email addresses. Something should work. I cannot believe they would not leave a message if they were asked to.
  15. I have an answering machine on my house phone. I hope if I am not home when they call they will leave a message.
  16. The project is supposed to take 2 month, but this being Mexico... Costco should be open to everyone starting tomorrow, unless there is some announcement to the contrary.
  17. Since traffic laws are seldom enforced it does not matter anyway.
  18. You are not doing anything wrong. It took me a long time before I got through yesterday (Sunday). I was using Edge.
  19. I have used SOSE for years and am very happy with them.
  20. I have suggested to some neighbors that we write a letter of complaint in Spanish and English to the Mayor. Have people sign it, and take it to the mayor and any officials which might care.
  21. FINALLY, I DID IT. After days, and hundreds (?) of tries this morning it worked. Up at 5 am I tried several times. Again at 7 am (I am using Edge). Finally, after breakfast on my first try it went through. I printed out my official form with my AM-followed 8 numbers. Step number 1 completed. Still a long way to go. Don't give up. Keep trying. I was beginning to not believe in what I was trying to do.
  22. I have been using Edge since 2:30 this morning. It is just a continuous cycle --I hit the final send and I am sent back to starting over again. Over, and over, and over. I am so tired of answering those silly cartoon tests.
  23. The AirB&B next to my house is known at the party house in my street. Last night 4 car loads partied all night and the noise is still going now at 10:30 am. At this rate they are shooting for 24 hours of continues loud music with a terribly loud beat accompanied with raucous noise and singing.
