  1. Yes ferret, why do you indulge this imbecile in any fashion whatsoever. Quit giving him mouth to mouth resuscitation!
  2. Do you mean güeros? Never heard light skinned Mexicans called "blancos", (and I got a lot of them). Some prietos too.
  3. Besides Mexico, Sinovac is the primary vaccine in Chile, Brazil, Turkey, and a bunch of SE Asian countries, including Singapore and Hong Kong, which are not so called third world countries. Are you saying people from these countries can not travel to countries that don´t offer Sinovac?
  4. It may be a "puente" for a lot of businesses and individuals in Santa Cruz de la Soledad, just east of Chapala pueblo.
  5. mudgirl, I read all your posts and agree with most of them....BUT If you have any faults or errors, which most of us have to one degree or the other, it is.......... Making mountains out of mole hills....IMHO
  6. Very good summary and advice gimpychimp- I had one daughter that attended the Chapala Prepa and went on to achieve the highest grade average at ITESO for her carrera at graduation. Another grand daughter, attneded Cervantes, a top private prepa in GDL with top grades but couldn´t make it into U de G Medical school. Go figure!!!............Just goes to show you....nothing is certain.
  7. And preferably attended a U de G prepa. Even the very best private prepas don´t carry as much weight as the U prepas if all other factors are equal, or even a little bit less than the private schools.
  8. Your lawyer is definitely wrong and I would bet my life on it. Don´t think I would use him for employee compensation matters.....LOL
  9. Of course they can buy in USD, done all the time. The dollars are wire transferred from one bank to another and could be to any country, anywhere. The buy/sell contract in USD and the exchange is in USD. Many Mexicans have dollar accounts NOB, besides the foreigners that are sellers too. They want dollars and they get them. Sure the ISR, R.E. commissions, IVA, and Notarial fees are in pesos, but the proceeds of the sale can, and usually is, kept in dollars.I
  10. When I got my line there weren´t enough phones in Chapala to make a half block line. Most everyone was still using the "casetas" and there, there would be a long line.
  11. Don´t you know some people were born with the inalienable "right" of never being wrong, and somehow wound up posting on this obscure forum.
  12. The difference mainly was getting a line when the government owned it. You had to buy it from someone who was leaving and would sell and then the bidding war started. The payment went to the previous owner of the line and Telmex didn´t get anything except the service charge for changing address and ownership of the line. I waited 5 years to get a line that wasn´t terribly overpriced and still wound up paying about 4,000 USD for it through the "Black Widow". I´m sure you newer residents have probably heard all the stories about her, and no I wasn´t one of her major victims (Graciás a Dios),
  13. NOPE!!!! You are allowed to have an opinion and make comments about "yourself"....LOL
  14. The usual negative commentary from the perfect world seeker.
  15. Same here, never have had a problem in 35 years of service with the same number, just the upgrades as they happened. So my Telmex is excellent. Do you think it´s because of the year we were born.....LOL
  16. Yes, but something tells me they are coming.............
  17. Never ate it, never heard of it, but it says long grain and wild rice. What´s so bad about that? And why would they add chemicals to rice?
  18. La Barca is much smaller than Guadalajara and you don´t have to go anywhere near the big city.
  19. As usual.........Mexico....WOLF! WOLF! WOLF! Mexico.......WOLF! WOLF! WOLF! To the ad nauseam .........When will your Grandpa Jim let you have some rest? Will he ever be placated? ?
  20. Finally, a piece of sense in a thread of total nonsense. Same here, never needed a reservation and they have excellent molcajetes. A lot of people want to make the thread about Peter, besides himself.
  21. ldrews???.......He´s the LAST person you want to make a bet with...HAHAHA
  22. Pete, no problem here for me either, but as you know, I have "inside" help. 😀 😀 😀
