  7. You're right and I responded to myself (above) instead of your posting. Sigh...technodino strikes again!
  8. You're absolutely right. I was focused on the end and not how to get there. Thanks for pointing that out! Of course, the bottom line is it takes so little to show your appreciation and I think sometimes we forget that.
  9. Too Funny

    Love it!
  10. Our maid and gardener both work 2 days/week, so the 2.14 calculations work out very closely to 3 weeks salary. We pay 3 weeks plus give them a decent basket (ham, nibbles, whatever) and a bottle of some decent beverage. For us, it's just a slightly extra touch to show our thanks. At the very minimum, go with the RollyBrook site. He's gone, as has been mentioned, but his wisdom remains. Happy Holidays to all!
  11. How happy are you with Netflix?

    MaineCoons is absolutely right. There are also some other VPNs that thwart Netflix. If you try their free offer, you probably will get blocked, BUT if you talk w/the reps, they'll tell you which channels are still good. I watch Netflix US nearly every night, but often switch to Netflix Mex and get a heck of a variety of movies and series. Either way, Netflix is a good value and you can always cancel it. For around $10usd/month (taxes), what's not to like? Almost forgot...I also watch Amazon Prime videos, too. You have to do a little homework, but there are some good, strong vpn providers that are reliable. I use a different one than the one mentioned, but if you Google, vpns for Netflix, you'll find 5 that are highly rated.
  12. It could also be that your item can't be shipped to Mexico. I've used Amazon for a lot of things and my orders have always shown up early. There are some items, though (electronics, fragrances, etc) , that I either have to pay for mail forwarding or get a friend who's going north.
  13. Scam Caller back from vacation

    That's why it's so important to mention this as often as possible...to try and save the trusting/naïve from this piece of shit.
  14. Housesitters beware!!!

    TOTALLY agree with you, Kam. Someone is brave enough to tell us how they got scammed - to keep the rest of us from falling for it - and gets ridiculed. What some don't understand is that the robbers are getting more and more sophisticated in their approach and it can be very easy to get sucked in. I won't go back over what happened to hubby, but it was 50% luck/50% timing. When one falls, it just makes them that more determined to continue. If someone asks you for money, no matter how convincing, try to remember to ask a question that only the real person would know. I'm really sorry for what happened to you, Camille.
  15. La Antigua in Riberas

    You are so right, CG!
