  1. Trying to compare handymail with ishop -  It appears that ishop allows more than one user for an address, are there any other significant differences?

    Note - Handymail says magazines can be sent to their US address and will be picked up and delivered to their lakeside address - assume Ishop does the same.

    Any significant differences?  besides price

  2. AjijicStoic -

    you mentioned:The website he touted "SafeTravelInmexico.org - well, I was on it last night"

    BUT that website  is not a registered/active domain - so maybe you spelled it differently last night?

    If you are not familiar with whois , it is a data lookup tool gives you the ability to look up the current registration data for domain names - and in this case, the domain ""SafeTravelInmexico.org"  has not been registered - so there is nothing to access - ie This site can’t be reached safetravelinmexico.org’s server IP address could not be found.


  3. Looking for a ride from Tucson for myself and 55 pound springer spaniel and some boxes......

    my lease here in Tucson ends on 5-31, and they just raised the rent 30%, so I figure it is time for us to return.  Dog will be 10 (born in Guadalajara)  - starting to get arthritis - and I can get a portable kennel for him - as he is not too keen about strangers - and travels well and he did a round trip when he was younger. 

    Number of boxes will depend on room available and price - have crossed the border several times and everything will be well marked.  

    Anxious to return - really miss lakeside

  4. IT IS A JOKE..............  This day of the year!

    Feliz Dia de Los Santos Innocentes

    Día de los Santos Inocentes | NeoStuff

    In Spain and Latin America, it is customary to make jokes of all kinds on this date. The media jokes or misrepresents their content in such a way that the information appears real. It is a freedom that media agents give themselves to unleash their sense of humor, an opportunity that they only have once a year. It is a tradition for newspapers to run entire pages of comic news, with the warning that it is April Fool’s Day, ranging from those that are an obvious mockery to any recent event, to those that seem serious and mislead the unsuspecting reader. April Fools Day is lived throughout the Spanish-speaking world.

  5. here is a good article - note the assumptions are "if everything goes well"   and right now there are not a lot of reasons to think everything will go well.

    The first doses of an approved Covid vaccine will go to health care workers and residents and employees of long-term care facilities, then essential public servants like police officers, firefighters and transit workers as well as workers in food processing plants. Not until there are hundreds of millions of doses available — sometime in 2021 if all goes well — will the vaccine be offered to the general public.

    Adequate protection against Covid-19 is expected to require two doses of vaccine. Thus, if the entire country were to be immunized, more than 600 million doses of vaccine would have to be manufactured.

  6. The one in Chapala is Chapala's Consignment Shoppe, and they have a wonderful business. It is very clean and items are well displayed. They just remodeled and the place is lovely. Just recently they opened up 2 more rooms, and they have new merchandise daily.

    I should have clarified - I go to Terry's for clothes - and to Chapala's Consignment Shoppe for everything else. I usually try to stop by once a month to see what they have. My favorite for stuff.
