  1. I got my first shot of Astra Zeneca at the Tech College on June 2nd. It is now coming up to 2 months and have not seen any notices about the second shot for our group that got thier first during this week that was handled very well. Any news?

  3. I am sure that you know EXACTLY what I mean!!! Someone here said that we should pay gardeners (and I assume others) 20% less than the going rate in the US. You replied "That might be reasonable if the country's overall wage was 20% less than up north, but it sure is not." and I replied "Gringo guilt". What is it that you do not understand about that???
  4. THE SKY IS FALLING!!! Pleeeze!!! I happen to be a history and archeology buff. I have read many stories about cultures way in the BC's that had to move from coastlines because of rising seas, and others completely wiped out by drought, floods, heat and ice, and all this before the internal combustion engine and fossil fuels. The above post makes good points regarding the $$$ aspects but I would suggest that we should be much more concerned by current social revolutions relating to a history much closer to us, such as the early 20th century!!!
  5. Did I say the texture is the same??? YOU tell me where you can get something closer to the real thing here!!!
  6. I am a fish and chips aficionado, having spent some time in England. My go to place here for many years is Lake Taco, next to the car wash just behind the gas station on the libremento just up from the Laguna Mall. I always go for the Mahi Mahi and ask for "extra crispy" chips. The outside coating of the fish is also very crispy and the fish is cooked to perfection and a little juicy inside. Not quite the "real thing", being North Atlantic cod, but almost there.
  7. Since I joined USAA bank a few years ago, I have been extremely happy. Wish that I had done so years earlier. Haven't had to call for a few months but cannot remember anywhere near that wait time. Can you be more explicit regarding this: "I've read news reports that USAA has its problems" ?
  8. I drive a 1982 Ford F150 pickup truck and am sure that it would fail any smog test, so I will take my chances and take the small fine and move on. This is just a government "money grab" inviting grand scale mordita scams that I refuse to contribute to. My truck was built pretty much before the computer age and is very basic in automation with simple maintenance and without the devises to limit "emissions". Recently I had my mechanic, Armando, do an engine rebuild and it is running like a charm. I asked him how much longer I can expect the truck to last and he said "40 more years". I then asked how much longer I would last, and he laughed and said "40 more years". I will take that!!!
  9. Sn. Bowie, I bow down to your superior intelligence and knowledge of everything...TAKE A HIKE!!! Quite a while ago I discovered how to create currency transfers from my US bank to my Mexican bank, so I rarely use ATM's and this notice was new with the one that I occasionally use. This board was created for mutual information sharing...not people like you trying to boost your ego!!!
  10. So when you "decline", what happens next? Do you get a second choice for another and better conversion rate?
  11. Parking is a problem all over Ajijic!!!
  12. Wow...learn something every day. I always click ACCEPT the conversion rate since I thought that this was just confirming it with them and if I declined the transaction would be also.
