    New nuisance caller on cell phone

    Can someone tell me please how to clear a "new Voicemail" notification off my cell phone? When I dial *86 to hear it, it is a recording in Spanish, but I don't know how to erase it so the notification on my home screen will go away. Thanks!
  2. I feel like I just saw that dog recently in a post where they were looking for a home for her. I will search a bit.

    Southern Sisters Restaurant

    I think they were trying to use the word "menos". 🤣 The drink "menos azucar" was being touted as a "normal" Coke.

  5. There is a dog which a lady rescued, being advertised on Facebook as needing a home. She looks medium sized and sounds fantastic. Here is her ad: Connie Webb 41 mins · Miss Maya is still looking for her forever home. We are going to be moving again, and the house is much smaller. That is only one of the reasons I can't keep her. She would do much better in a home with children to play with or another playful dog to keep her company, my Chihuahuas just aren't interested in playing. She's a little love bug, smart as can be, and figured out how to open the screen doors here in the house within days of arriving. She is crate trained and doesn't make a sound when you lock her in. She loves to chew pigs ears, and plays gently with her stuffies. She has been spayed, and vaccinated. She can be flown to Canada or the US. Wont someone please adopt her, or share, share , share and lets find her a home!

    Renewing Perm. Resident card

    I don't think you can renew if it is expired. I think you have to apply again from the beginning in your own country. This would be a good time to pay for professional advice from someone like Spencer. ( Intercasa on this board ) I think you should make an appointment right away to see what your options are.

    No different than trying to park near the old location with all the Tapatios in town for the weekend.

    ordering from amazon

    I have found the Mexican site to be much more expensive than the American one.

    Tipping Disagreement

    An Uber to the airport right now quoted me 222 pesos, so if I was being charged 600 pesos I wouldn't feel a tip is required on top of it. The Miramontes family has become very expensive compared to other drivers.

    Do you pay staff for sick days, and how much?

    In 12 years I have never had a housecleaner or gardener ask for time off for medical appointments or for IMSS coverage. I don't think you are obliged to pay for sick days but you are obliged to pay for "vacation" days, which most workers never actually take, so maybe you could make the days he takes off his "vacation" days so that you don't have to pay them out at the end of the year with his aguinaldo. Instead he gets that one day a month with pay. I sure hope that when you bought the house the realtors made sure you got finiquitos for the years they worked for the previous owner.

    La Mision

    Now they are called "Casa Linda". I had lunch there this week and found the service to be lacking, as it always has been. Food was ok but nothing to write home about. Waiter was nice but looking after a group was not something he was ready for, and he was confused constantly about who ordered what, etc.

    Lakeside increased population?

    Mopsy, there is a government program that allows employed Mexicans to buy a house and make payments on it. Maybe your workers are unaware of it. http://portalmx.infonavit.org.mx/wps/portal/infonavit.web/trabajadores/!ut/p/z1/04_Sj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfIjo8zijSwMDNydDAz93C08LAwc3Vw9XS19jI3cDQ30wwkpiAJKG-AAjiD9UWAluEwINYQqwGNGQW6EQaajoiIA0SbkSA!!/dz/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/
