  1. I wish mine were that easy. I use the PO that services Ixtlahuacan and as of this Tues. they still didn't have it. I have a BBVA account and they won't accept U.S. Treasury checks even though my SS check is deposited automatically in my account. Then I have to mail it to my credit union in San Diego because they're not set up for android phones only iphone.
  2. I use my BBVA account to receive my SS checks so the stimulus checks get mailed to me. For some reason it seems to take a month or more for the checks to get down here.
  3. Curious to see who has received theirs. Still waiting
  4. Word of warning, the new coin doesn't look exactly like that. It's all gold with no silver center piece. While it does look very handsome it's quite easy to confuse it with a 10p coin.
  5. My wife got hers on 4/6. Mine is hopefully being mailed to me. Curious to see how many weeks that will take.
  6. Roses do very well here. Also they are incredibly cheap. Why not look into a climbing rose?
  7. How timely! Just got gas about 5 minutes ago. Zeta Gas. 12.66/lt. Back in January it was 10.81/lt.
  8. The one in SJC has always been our favorite. Might not always have the best prices but the variety and the care that they give to the plants are top notch.
  9. Since I get mine mailed to me I'm not expecting to have it show up for another month or so.
  10. I just went this morning and they have all the lights working. Coming down the libremento get in the right lane and take the right exit, just before you exit onto the main road there is another light stopping traffic from blocking the entrance to the road on the right side of the auto parts store.
  11. LOL. Probably the same one I received yesterday telling me that my $600 stimulus check was on it's way. I received the check March 1st, almost a month after it was sent. Since my bank, Bancomer, won't accept a US treasury check, no matter the amount, I've been forced to mail the check to our credit union in the states. With the $1200 check I accidently sent it by regular mail, costing 69p, and it arrived in San Diego about a week later. The $600 check I sent through DHL, costing over 900p, and it arrived in 2 days. Both checks I used IShop.
  12. I agree about taking it to the dealer. However the dealer recommends every 10k km or 1 year which ever comes first. I suppose the age of the vehicle might play into it also..
  13. I think it must vary slightly from account to account then. Mine is always deposited on the 4th depending on what day of the week the 4th falls on. Like next month it will be deposited on the 2nd because the 4th is on Sunday. I also bank at Bancomer.
  14. Nice example of a cantera fountain! Good luck in your search.
  15. Do you want concrete or cantera stone? If the later try the cantera stone yard next to Tobolandia. They had several in stock the last time I was there or they can custom make one for you.
  16. Between 1.5 and 2 hours, definitely under 3. I remember the times when we had to waste all morning waiting. To those of you who don't like going to Guadalajara or waiting for any length of time by all means get someone to help you. I've never had a problem driving in Mexico and with my wife being Mexican it admittedly helps.
  17. We did ours the end of January. Very easy, maybe 1.5 hrs. total. They have lines set up outside for what you need to have done. Get a number and they'll tell you what line to stand in. Once they call you go upstairs to the window. Really wasn't that crowded and no problem social distancing. Expect to pay more than last year. My wife and I are 72 and it was about 12,000p each.
  18. Time will tell. Of course nothing is guaranteed and one would be foolish to spend what they don't have, counting chickens and all that. But as of now the signs are more favorable than not.
  19. No, he promised to send out an additional $1400 which along with the $600 would give the $2000.
  20. Last year everyone that was eligible received a check for $1200. Towards the end of the year everyone that was eligible received a check for $600 with the hope that an additional check for $1400 would soon be available. Unless something happens that $1400 check is supposed to go out towards the middle or end of March.
  21. $600 stimulus check. Remember the first one last year, $1200? Hopefully we'll be receiving the 3rd check,$1400, by the middle of March.
  22. Picked up mine today. Post office said they just received it yesterday.
  23. If you need another reason to not take the toll road to Costco and environs. We took the road this morning as usual (we only live 5 min. from the entrance to the toll) and were surprised to see that that rate has gone up to 96p from 75p. Not sure if it's worth the extra 10 minutes I save.
  24. Curious if anyone that has their stimulus check mailed to them as opposed to direct deposit received it yet. Previously after reading in a thread on this board about checking with the post office to see if your check was there I went to the PO that serves my community and low and behold there it was. No telling how many months it was sitting there. Was told that we should have received a notice but of course this being Mexico.... We've already checked again for the latest check but nothing.
