  1. Since the CDC will be requiring proof of a negative Covid test before international flights beginning January 26th, does anyone have information on where to have the Covid test performed locally, how long it takes to receive the results and the approximate cost? I would be flying out on a Sunday so I would need to have the test and the results by the Friday or Saturday before.
  2. Is long-term parking no longer available on the top floor of the parking garage?
  3. According to my immigration lawyer you are only permitted one year on a Residente Temporal. Then within 30 days of expiration of the one year you may renew, in Mexico, for another three years.
  4. Would you mind providing the contact information necessary to reach Satellite Systems? Thanks.
  5. I stopped by the new hospital in SAT yesterday and was told October. For what it's worth.
  6. I've got a couple of photos on my iPhone on my WhatsApp and would like to get copies printed. Anyone know of a place locally that can do that? Thanks.
  7. I've been taking either Coumadin or the generic Warfarin for almost 40 years after having PE's on four occasions beginning in my mid 20's. I never had to change the dosage and my PT was always spot on. Several years ago Coumadin became unavailable in Mexico for a month or so and I was prescribed a Mexican blood thinner which I had major problems with so I returned to the states to obtain a prescription. Again Coumadin has been unavailable in Mexico for at least the last three or four months (good article Bisbee Girl) and after my supply ran out and consulting with my doctor, I am now taking
  8. Hopefully by August the border crossings will be reopened to nonessential travel and render this moot. I am currently on an FMM and have a TIP that expire in early August. Would it be possible or feasible to drive up to the border (Hidalgo/Pharr preferably) and turn in my unexpired FMM and TIP and then request a new FMM and TIP for an additional 180 days without leaving the building and not crossing into the US, spend the night in Mexico and return to Lakeside the following day? Or if anyone knows how the same can be accomplished without that 12 hour border run. I certainly do not want my
  9. Lots, all sizes, at El Torito.
  10. Many resorts in Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Puerto Vallarta & Punta de Mita are making plans to reopen on June 1. Hopefully they will be able to do so with modifications, so I would assume the US-Mexico border crossings will reopen and begin issuing FMMs and TIPs?
  11. I fall into the (2) category. Have filed and paid quarterly and on April 15th for the past 40 years. Never received a refund that I can remember. Combined income, spouse and myself, has not exceeded $75,000 since 2011. When I check on the IRS site under both our names it says eligibility status has not been determined. I'm expecting the stimulus at some point, just not holding my breath.
  12. Off topic but anyone know how many installers iLox has?
  13. Telmex download 1.50, upload 0.31. Waiting on iLox. Supposedly within the next month. However, I never see any installation going on and think maybe their personnel capabilities for new installs are woefully inadequate.
  14. I was at the gym at the time it happened, around 8:00, and passed by on the way home two hours later and the sheet covered body and vehicles were still there. Was told it was a young Mexican guy on the blue motorcycle coming from Chapala and a Mexican driver heading east who crossed into the left lane to pass another motorcycle and didn't see the one coming and they hit head on.
  15. Possibly the sporting goods store behind Black Coffee might have them. They've got a large selection of athletic shoes. I purchased a great pair through Amazon MX Prime and received them in two days.
  16. Looking for information on Three Kings Day in Cajititlan. The articles I've seen says 12 days after Christmas, next Monday 6 January. Any feedback from folks who have been before would be appreciated.
  17. Ishop. Red building just east of Superlake. 766-1933. www.ishopmail.com
  18. Other than the guy at the Wednesday tianguis, does anyone know of a person who does watch repair? There was a man who had a shop by the Chapala bus station but he passed away a few years back. Thanks.
  19. I'm in lower Chula Vista and I'm still getting around 1.66 Download Mbps, 0.24 Upload Mbps. All I get from Telmex is expect huge improvement anywhere from two weeks to two months. Same thing I've been hearing from them for the past six months.
  20. I'm looking for a good welder who can weld an broken aluminum welded rear fender on an electric bike. Thanks.
  21. I crossed at Anzalduas two weeks ago. Plenty of hotel, shopping and eating places between Pharr and Laredo. Left aduana at 7:30 and arrived back in SAT at 6:30. Eleven hours with only minimal gas and bano breaks. Mostly close to speed limit. Paid 1,480 pesos in tolls, 14 toll booths. Easy drive. Used WAZE gps.
  22. I would highly recommend Anzalduas bridge at Pharr, Texas. Crossed a couple of weeks back around 7:30 a.m. and was third in line for TIP and 180 day visitor permit. In and out in 30 minutes or less. Laredo has only gotten worse recently, crossed there two months ago, with all the immigrant activity and all immigrants being detained in Nuevo Laredo. Plus locating the aduana office is a major headache and a number of the border patrol agents in Laredo are complete jerks.
  23. If you cross near McAllen at Anzalduas or Pharr/Hidalgo early morning around 6:30 or 7:00 A.M., you'll likely be very close to the front of the line to fill out your Immigration Permit and TIP forms. Aduana is right there. Very simple process and you'll be on your hassle free way in a half hour or less. Laredo is a totally different story and I'd advice avoid crossing at the Laredo International Bridges I or II at all costs. Google Border Wait Times complete listing of bridges, times of operation and usual wait times.
  24. Any info on where to get a flu shot? Preferably a drop in not requiring a visit to my doctor's office. Thanks.
  25. I've got no sound on my PC and am not savvy enough to troubleshoot and fix. Any computer techs who would be available to come by and help me out? Of course I'll pay for the help. I'm in lower Chula Vista. PM me. Thanks. Problem solved. Had to download driver. Thanks.
