  1. Unless they've changed since the last time we went a couple of weeks ago they weren't open until 10:00, and that was for everyone.
  2. With the covid pandemic going on has the procedure for renewing changed any? It doesn't seem very healthy to be packed into a room with dozens of people.
  3. Good to know. A couple of days ago I had the same exact bug staring at me through our office window as I was on the computer!
  4. I'm feeling your pain Mitch. I was born in San Diego and lived there most of my life. My wife still has most of her family living there. In normal years we would have made at least 2 trips up north. I missed my 50 year college reunion at USD. We talk to them almost daily so are aware of what's happening. Stay safe and healthy and hopefully in the near future we'll be able to travel again.
  5. Following advice I saw on the forum here I checked with the post office that handles the mail for our area and low and behold there was a check waiting! We were told that we should have been notified that we had to pick up the letter, but oh well. I'm having the same problem depositing/cashing it that others have mentioned. Has anyone found an easy way to accomplish this? Opening another account at a different bank (already have one at BBVA) is not an option. The Paypal option would maybe work if I didn't already have the check in my possession. We have an account in the states at a credi
  6. So do I have to go to the Chapala P.O. to get my check?
  7. Across from Soriana, next door to the wood shop there is a store that will repair small tools. I had an angle grinder repaired there. Sometimes they have to send it to Guadalajara though, but at least they know where to have it done.
  8. Woke up this morning and noticed that the time on my computer was an hour behind and that our phones were also behind. So far everyone we talked to was also unaware.
  9. That's to renew a visa though. On the website for getting a passport and the e-mail reply I received yesterday they state that only emergency passports would be issued and they want to know what the emergency is.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I did e-mail the consulate and was told that they are basically closed except for emergencies. Since we don't know when we'll be able to go back north I'll just wait to renew.
  11. My passport is due for renewal the beginning of November. I've visited the website, printed the forms and need to make an appointment. I have the phone # for the embassy but when I call I get a recording asking for my pin#. What's this and where would I get one.
  12. I would certainly hate to be the person that had to work in a smoke filled environment. I'm all for the new law.
  13. I'll probably regret this. Stopped in today and saw that they have a nice quantity of black licorice. Sorry, no Twizzlers (but that's not really licorice). They even had the Red Vines in the 16oz packages. Also Australian licorice.
  14. This new location makes it perfect though when going to Costco, less than 5 minutes away.
