  1. I bought 3 kilos of Kirkland butter at Costco Morelia yesterday, after a long stretch of none being available. Thanksgiving at our house is a very butter-heavy day, so I was quite happy to find it available.
  2. Harry, I have used this one for about 10 years. I really, really like it, you might also. I buy it at any Walmart in Mexico. https://www.amazon.com/Carapelli-Verde-Virgin-Cold-Pressed-Ounces/dp/B07TLPCBM1
  3. Sonia, I've had difficulties with two different banks in getting my fingerprints to "read" on their fingerprint readers. I understand that my fingerprints have pretty much worn away with the passage of time! Weird, no? But apparently true. On October 5, I have an appointment with INE to update my credencial. Can you offer me any advance pointers or alternatives if my fingerprints refuse to register on their readers?
  4. I sent my ballot to California, via diplomatic pouch, in plenty of time for the 2016 presidential election. The California elections people never received the ballot, and the embassy in Mexico City said it had been lost somewhere along the way. I re-sent it via fax, an expensive proposition. Caveat emptor, so to speak, but it arrived in time to be counted.
  5. My experience has been that unless you have a written contract with a provider, PROFECO doesn't handle a case. "Written contract" includes airline tickets, and much more. But if you simply let a guy take your washing machine, who said he'd fix it for you, you have no written contract. YMMV.
  6. Do any of the plant people still go to the Wednesday tianguis? At one time, parsley (and cilantro, and hierbabuena, and romero, and oregano, etc) plants were available there every week.
  7. All that was left of the tomahawk steak! I think 8 of us shared the meat--it was fantastic. (Among us, we also ate almost everything else on the menu. We were invited by the owner of the restaurant!)
  8. Bank of America DEBIT cards do have a foreign transaction fee: 3% of the amount you withdraw from an ATM. In addition, if you withdraw from any bank in Mexico other than Scotiabank, you will also incur an ATM charge of $5.00USD. Scotia has a global alliance with BofA that means one doesn't pay the ATM fee. I can withdraw up to 8,000 pesos from a Scotiabank ATM, and follow that up with immediate withdrawals up to my daily BofA dollar withdrawal limit. Each of those $8,000 peso withdrawals will incur the 3% foreign transaction fee.
  9. Buy one on Mercado Libre México: https://listado.mercadolibre.com.mx/baston-para-agarrar-objetos#D[A:baston para agarrar objetos] Yesterday I purchased an item late in the afternoon. It arrived at around noon today. Free shipping. Mercado Libre is great.
  10. I read the first part, which was strongly related to the current epidemic. One of these days I'll pick it up again to read the second part. Sofía Segovia is a very fine writer and the story is definitely similar to what we are experiencing now, 100 years later.
  11. I use an ad blocker called UBlock Origin. It's free, non-intrusive, and it works well with Chrome. Here's a link to the website--they'll tell you which other systems are compatible with it. https://www.google.com/search?q=ublock+origin&oq=ublock&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l7.5749j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  12. Those onions are known in Spanish as "cebollita de cambray" and yes, I was going to suggest them.
  13. Second the motion for Bancomer for bank transfers--not that this answers the OP's question, but it might simplify the OP's situation. Using Bancomer's cell phone app makes setting up a transfer as easy as it can be: you need their account number, OR their bank card number OR their CLABE OR their cell phone number so the bank knows where you want to transfer the money. There are a couple of other questions to answer--nothing invasive and nothing you need to ask the transferee to provide--and boom, you've set up the account to transfer to. Once you've set it up, you use the same account info
