  1. It probably comes down to three strain (Gov't) v four strain (private) I opted to pay and receive the four strain.
  2. To donate to the Lakeside Food Bank, check here: https://foodbanklakeside.org/donate/
  3. We also saw Mike as a friend and also our go to tech guy for many years. He will be greatly missed. Great sympathy to his family. Chris - perhaps there is something local that we could contribute to his his memory?
  4. https://puntolaguna.huelladesarrollos.com/ It sounds rather like the very slow moving development next to the Coke plant in San Antonio, with a slight change of name. I have noticed work going on there this week.
  5. I was just there. One ATM is still missing and the other was out of service. I sincerely hope HSBC will get sorted out but I'm not holding my breath! The machine for payments and deposits appeared to be working. Luckily CIBanco had money but this could be a rough weekend on the money front.
  6. I was just at Quality Care and was told they expect to have the 4 strain shots by the end of the month. I did not ask cost.
  7. The subject of this thread is the exchange rate at ATM's - we seem to have wandered far away!
  8. That figure sounds wildly optimistic, based on anecdotal information from Mexican friends. Covid is spreading rapidly at the moment.
  9. The test site at Soriana is open now? Last reports were that it was closed as the assistant was ill.
  10. Is it possible that in order to change a PIN, you need to use a machine belonging to the bank issuing the card? In the past I've changed a PIN on the phone, entering the new pin from my phone.
  11. Make sure you decline the rate they offer on screen, With HSBC, I find that the difference between the offered rate and the actual rate given is as much as a peso.
  12. Yup, I've been here over 15 years and am suddenly a Newbie again. Good for our characters I guess.
  13. We were there this week for the second Pfizer shot. All the folks waiting at the CVS pharmacy we used, were from Mexico. Yes, I'd want an appointment. The pharmacist told us he was limited to 25 vaccinations a day. However, getting one should not be a problem. Just Google for info on sites setting up appointments.
  14. Operative words being "for awhile".
  15. I also saw people in hard hats and vests there last week.
  16. Don't forget the list of materials needed for the year that the teachers hand out before summer vacation. In my experience buying supplies for our help, you can spend 1500 pesos upwards on those lists.
  17. The nightjar that is found in this area is the Buff Collared Nightjar. I haven't yet heard one this spring but expect them to start calling any time now.
  18. I was slightly feverish the first evening but that was all.
