  1. Thank you for your information. I will not have to ask around where the office is located. Have a nice Xmas!
  2. I don't care to receive an income. I just want to publish the book I worked so hard to do. Even if I list it for free, at least it will be there. Hey! If I don't try, I will never know if it has a chance. But, to do this, I need to fill this form that they require. I don't know how to go around the address requirement. Thank you for your encouragement!!! 😀 😉
  3. Are there any Canadians writers listening?? Have you published with Amazon? Or do you know how to do it? KDP and Create Space! I need some information about the form on tax declaration. There’s seem to be a problem for someone having his permanent residence in Mexico and his tax residence in Canada. The royalties come from the US, and they require the same address to send the tax forms at the end of the year--assuming there is a payment.🤣 I'd appreciate any information you can give me on the subject. Thank you!!
  4. Years ago, I called 01-800-368-0500. I was connected to an English speaking gentleman, but he could not help me with this problem, so I spoke to his supervisor. She did not speak English, but I'm sure you could ask for someone to help you in English now. That was 12 years ago. By the way, the guy in Ajijic's office knew that I was the one who had reported the problem to Mexico. The only draw back for me was that my name was not in the list of people who were connected that week.🤣 I had to return to the office in Ajijic to tell him to make sure I get my line before the end of the week. And it was done. Nothing was spoken openly and no threat either-- just a bit of sarcasm covered with smiles.
  5. If Telmex office in Ajijic tells you that there are no lines available, call the main office in Mexico. When I arrived in my neighbourhood that was the case for 22 people waiting up to one year without a line. I called Mexico to complain about it and they did not understand why that was. Everybody received a line within two weeks. You can draw your own conclusion.
  6. It ought to be the printer. When I connect my printer alone without any computer, the light stays on. I have a feeling that we had a brown out when we were away, and it damaged the printer even being off, but the plug was in. My printer is still at the shop. They have to take it to Guad to check it out. Everyday, it's supposed to be ready mañana. 🙄 Thanks for all the information. I learn something every time.
  7. I have been using #56 for a long long time, and it used to work. Also, my printer is Hp 1315 all-in-one, but Windows used to register it as Hp 1310 all-in-one. Now, it's showing Hp 1310 series. There's nothing else on the list to chose from. Maybe that is the problem.
  8. I uninstalled the printer and installed it again and again and the red light showing that I need a new cartridge is still on. I even installed the printer in my other computer . . . same thing. I brought my printer to have it checked. I'll know the situation my Monday.
  9. It makes sense that the print heads get gummy with refills, then my printer should not need to be cleaned up. My new original cartridge from Hp should work then. I wonder what happened between the cartridge switch over. It indicates to my printer that my cartridge should be replaced and also indicates to my system that I am offline.Humm! Two months ago, when I turned everything off, the old gummy cartridge worked fine but, as I said, the printer had to stay on to avoid the test page to be printed. It printed dark and clear until suddenly the page was completely blank. Then, I had to buy a new cartridge . . . I don't trust Hp! They must have noticed my strategy, and now they block.There must be an adjustment to do on the computer. I want to be sure that the problem is not with my printer before searching further. Thanks Mike for your comments.
  10. Thanks Mike. After being away for two months, I changed my cartridge with the original hp 56 for Hp 1315 all-in-one but the light "the change your cartridge" stays on. In the system, it shows that the printer is offline and, of course, the test page registers but does not come out. I checked all connections, unplugged all the wires a few times around, remove and shut off the computer to get rid of the sheet to print, but nothing changes. I have to say that I used twice a refilled cartridge and, at the end, I had to keep the printer on all the time to avoid the test page to print every time. I have a feeling that the printer's heads might be dirty.

    Scam ?

    Thank you! Unbelievable all those gimmicks. That's what happened. We ignored and deleted.

    Did you ever receive a warning from Windows asking you to call a 800 number to report that your computer is at risk because you are infected with a virus. They use a voice and windows to pass their message. They say that your computer will be locked if you don't call that number?
  13. After arguing with Scotia Bank Canada trying to make them understand I was always a Canadian citizen and held a passport as such even though I was a non-resident, they finally accepted me to open an account. But, other than my regular account, they do not allow me to make investments or get a visa card. I mentioned that I dealt with Scotia in Mexico . . . the answer was they had nothing to do with Scotia Canada except the name. Because I am a non-resident of Canada, they treat me as a foreigner (almost) but make an exemption because Immigration Canada allows me to hold a bank account for the purpose of pensions only, even if my pensions go in TD. Our branch in Scotia Canada had to call the head office every time I had a question. My branch in TD sent me directly to Visa office, which told me that they needed a Canadian address. It worked, but I have a wrong address in my account now, which is not right. I have to fix it before Immigration finds out. I gave up my non-residence 10 years ago, and I am considered as such for Immigration. If the other banks do otherwise, it's either because: (a) they don't know what a non-resident status requires them to do; or (b) you have given them an address in Canada; or (c) you are still a resident of Canada (official) even though you live out. We always have to know the facts when someone else tells you that it works for them. If that was so simple?
  14. In the last 5 years, on my visits to Canada, I've been trying twice to get a Visa card from TD, but they always told me that I had to have a Canadian address. Last year, I finally gave in and gave the address of a relative--which is wrong because I'm not a resident. Then, at the same time, they have changed my address in my online profile. I cannot change it because we don't have the same type of postal code in Mexico. In the meantime, my relative sold the house, and the Visa junk does not follow. When I called my branch, as I did not realize that my address had been changed, they did not want to deal with me because they could not identify me. I've been a client in that bank for 45 years. Their problem is that THEY change their staff every year and they don't know their customers AND THEY DON'T CARE. I can't wait to visit Canada in the summer. As I can see on this forum, Royal Bank seems to be accommodating. What a nuisance as we have our pensions going in, but I've had it with them.
  15. Be advised that most of those recommendations are good for a DENTIST, but what you are asking for is who specializes in implants. Implants are NOT done by those dentists Eloy, Haro, etc, .they do crowns, and they ask an orthodontist from Guadalajara to come and do the implants for them. I have seen one of them for an estimate at one of the local offices and turn him down for a few reasons. I finally went to an orthodontist in Guadalajara for my implants and to another who specializes in crowns. I wanted the best because of three bad experiences in the area. You have to allow a few months for the whole procedure.
