  1. That sounds like a good arrangement. It take time to find the right people.
  2. Good to hear that you are well taken care of.
  3. Thanks that may be a bit complicated for me. There are many different raincoats-some are too hot, some don't work, etc so it would be nice to check it out first.
  4. Does anyone know where I can buy a good raincoat Lakeside for an adult? Knee length. I had a good one but I gave it to someone who needed it more than me. Now I have taken on a project where I have to wander around in the rain at times. I think the title should have been Impermeable.
  5. Many people find no need for a Mexican account. You can keep your money in your home bank and access it via bank machinesin Mexico. Make sure you have as high as opossible daily withdrawal limit from you home bank. If you are doing construction and need to withdraw large amounts of money build it up and hide it. If you need to transfer money from NOB consider getting an HSBC account in the North and in Mexico. If you are a premier customer in the North you are one anywhere in the worldM. Then you can transfer money between the two countries on your computer. No charge for the transfer and is instantaneous. No ATM feesI would never leave more than a few thousnad dollars in your Mexican account as it can disappear. The HSBC bank here is one of the few full service banks. They have 3 ATMs
  6. Does anyone know of forums for living in Baja California or Cabo San Lucas? All I can find are travel ones.
  7. I sprayed the whole tree with soapy water with Neem oil added to it and then rubbed the black off every leaf by hand.
  8. That is not what the experts say
  9. I have userd Cynoff but a few scorpions still appear in the house. So I use the sticky pads that Jara sells as a seconf line o defense. I was stung once, the scorpion was in a damp towel. It was no big deal. No medication required.
  10. Realizing how things function in Mexico I have suspected the same for years. I usually use Ciel or Santa Maria as I think they are made by Coca Cola where there is more likely to be quality control.
  11. That will be a sad day if most all Shaw channels go. It is the best for me. It depends on what you like to watch. I don't watch movies.
  12. I've flown Aeromexico from Vancouver to Guadalajara via Mexico City a number of times and my bags always go through all the way through to Guadalajara. No fuss with them at MC. I always ask if my bags go through on their own when I check in in Vancouver.
  13. Are you happy with the new Microsoft Edge
  14. That site doesn't seem to deliver here. You may have to check with a local flower store.
  15. That is an if. It depends on how effecient hepta filters work.
  16. Looking at that video I might have been safe on my last Aeromexico flight. I had seat 1A, no one beside me, no one in the aisle seat on the right side of the plane. So the nearest person on my right would have been over 2 meters away. (there are only 4 seats per row in business class). One person in the two seats behind me.In any event if you have to fly it is probably best to pick the safest options.
  17. Maybe. I had a flight on AirCanada Toronto to PV connecting with Aeromar flying to Guadalajara. Baggage was to be auomatically transferred except the government kept cancelling the last flight
  18. Interesting . I flew business class on Air Canada from Toronto to Puerto Vallarta in April. There were 18 seats in business class. I was the only passenger in there. About 10 people in the back of the plane (a plane that holds about 200). The planes seem to be flying much fuller since then. Earlier this month I flew business class on Aeromexico to Vancouver. Business class was almost full. In the back of the plane there were 90 some passengers. Most of these 90 some were Mexicans flying to pick fruit in British Columbia.
  19. If you fly Business class on Aeromexico on that route two large bags and one carry on are free aren't they? Probably cleaner air also. Another plus with business class on aeromexixco is that my dog could ride at my feet without a crate and no charge. My dog flew twic like that.
  20. I always follow procedure. I repeat the only person sitting within 6 feet of me was behind me. I asked for the seat beside me to be empty. There were very few lines-none at boarding as I had priority, none at immigration a bit of a one at security. You have to wonder about the infection of everyone everywhere. No buses.
