  1. The two previous Posts pretty much sum up your wife's friend's situation. Unless the friend has a valid 'multi-year' Temporal visa, the car is now illegal and should not be driven except with a Retorno Seguro (Safe Return) within 5 business days after receipt TO THE BORDER and out of the country. A Retorno doesn't cost much but, unless the friend is comfortable going to Guadalajara SAT to acquire it, a 'facilitator' can get it and there will be a fee from them.... lately in the range of 1000-1500 pesos. I agree that the decision to sell it and buy Mexican is a personal one and can have many ramifications that no one but the owner can determine. It's not a cut-n-dried situation. A broker can 'pre-determine' about how much the Nationalization will cost... it depends on the vehicle being Nationalized.... but a decent estimate for an average 2005 vehicle would be around $2,500 US. Then, as noted, Jalisco taxes and fees and plates will also be required BUT that would also be the case if one bought Mexican instead so that's kind of a wash IMO.
  2. .... and KENILWORTH, N.J., Feb. 4, 2021 – Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, today affirmed its position regarding use of ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic. Company scientists continue to carefully examine the findings of all available and emerging studies of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 for evidence of efficacy and safety. It is important to note that, to-date, our analysis has identified: No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies; No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease, and; A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies. We do not believe that the data available support the safety and efficacy of ivermectin beyond the doses and populations indicated in the regulatory agency-approved prescribing information.
  3. Man this crowd is vicious. The "d" key is right next to the "e" key. Cut Harry some slack, no?
  4. Looks like it the Leal's.... unless Pete can remember who did his.... 18 years ago! 😎
  5. 2 questions: Whipstock, what is a 'swack' of cash??? happyJ.... what happens on the 20th? Just curious.....
  6. If the Dan you speak of is Maincoons, I think that he/wife are in the US touring in their RV. May not have good Internet everywhere they go or... just may not be interested in Moderating from afar.
  7. I haven't done that combination for quite a while but one used to have to go inside anyway for the things you mentioned.
  8. There are/used to be a couple of small places in San Antonio on Ramon Valazquez... the street down the side of Sunrise Restaurant. The first one was at the first street intersection, SE corner. Had 3 pads. Then half a block on down Valazquez on the left was/is a more established lot for about 5-6 RVs. There was also a lot pretty much across the street from Lety's Seafood Restaurant in SanAntonio, down Gonzalez Gallo. Behind a big blue gate #74D. It was a private lot with only 1 or 2 spaces but I knew a guy/wife who used to be there with their small trailer. Haven't a clue how to find out if it still exists or who to contact if so. Maybe the folks in Lety's would know. These may be gone or full... I don't know the status these days.
  9. But as is often the case, the devil is in the details. I have also thought that a "Skymed" Evac policy would be good to consider. BUT, one has to have a 'home'.... or at least somewhere that plane can land.... in the US after the evac. And probably 'someone' there to assist with what may be a long, drawn out recovery period. Many folks no longer have much of any connection(s) back in the US as they have pretty much committed to 'living' in Mexico.
  10. Yes, you made it crystal clear..... 😃
  11. I am assuming that, when you use the term 'land line' you are referring to your new TotalPlay phone which is an Internet (VOIP) phone and not a land line. I make this distinction because, if I am right, your terminology is confusing to others and your message might be misunderstood or misconstrued. If I have assumed wrong, then I apologize and disregard...
  12. Farmer's Almanac says that BC will have a mild winter.....
  13. The Farmer's Almanac is out for the 2021-2022 season and with some exceptions the weather NOB may send some folks south to escape. See: https://www.almanac.com/winter-extended-forecast-farmers-almanac
  14. Actually many folks would and do "buy into" this kind of policy, not for its value if ones stays healthy but as a hedge against the 'big one'. It's called catastrophic coverage. Not too different conceptually than buying a life insurance policy.... may never use it BUT if the occasion arises it can save the bacon.
  15. In Mexico "soon" could be next year. Do you have more specifics?
