  1. Last week I paid for two vehicles and they told me to come back in April for the tarjeta circulacion. The next day my wife went and paid for her car and they gave her the tarjeta. 🤔
  2. I gave a "like" for the 'second meter comment to run the pool pump.' I did that and it dropped me out of DAC. I tried to add a second meter in Ajijic but no luck. In Joco a few years later, there was no problem with a second meter add. Go figure. The other comment about the "poor folk" who are illegally connected ?? I do not know any Mexicans who steal electricity but I personally know 6 Americans and Canadians with puentes installed in their meters to bypass the meter and hence free electricity. They certainly are not "poor folk", just cheap asses. All of them could easily afford a solar system. After one of the Americans was caught with the puente in his meter, he paid a hefty fine, 20,000 Pesos. So he waited until his neighbor left town for vacation. He dug a trench to the neighbor's house and illegally connected for electricity and water to run his pool pump. How would you like to live next to that guy?
  3. Same guy has opened a shop on Viciente Guerrero in Jocotepec and that shop is the best around for those who live in lakeside west areas.
  4. Michoacán, el alma de México. Everyone just about is in the guitar business there. You need to hunt to find the best though.
  5. I think the 357 Magnum cannot be registered in Mexico, it is not a permitted handgun. Hence, the ammo will be nearly unobtainable. That may be the reason for the bargain price. Unregistered and no ammo. You could probably sell it in Ajijic anyway though and still pocket some pesos.
  6. Don't leave me hanging. Does Costco have salted butter today? . . . . .LOL
  7. Be sure to visit Paracho, Michoacan in early August for the International Guitar Festival. Or anytime of the year. You won't be disappointed.
  8. I don't worry too much about being an opionated person. If someone asks my opinion. I refer them to my wife. 😁
  9. Some posters just have a bad hair day once in a while. I dunno, I don't care. Not my problem. Some people see life as a half glass empty, others as a half glass full. I tend to think like an engineer, the glass is the wrong size so just pass the bottle and forget about the glass.
  10. Borderland Beat...Anonymous owner and many anonymous contributors such as various carteles that use the BB to intimidate and threaten other carteles and their families.
  11. "No dejes camino Real por vereda" which means don't leave the main road. . . .
  12. I have about 40 new in the package brushed nickel pulls if anyone is interested. Someone goofed up.
  13. My 2000 Ford F250 blew the water pump in Matehuala about 10 years ago. No worries, the 7.3L International motor was manufactured in Monterrey just down the road. Unfortunately those motors were for export only. So no water pump available in Mexico. However, as usual in Mexico, the International dealer in Matehuala had a cousin who worked at the Navistar/International factory in Monterrey. His cousin found a water pump at the loading dock there that just "fell off the truck" headed to Laredo.
  14. If you want contemporary/modern pulls, the store to the right of Casa del Plomero has a good selection.
