    I'm not sure how you think endless posts about your plans are of interest.

    Whether it's a for-profit or non-profit venture, you do your market research and then either follow through, or not. 

    People on an internet forum don't need a blow-by-blow of your plans.


    Are you ever correct, this poster is the king of blah, blah, blah!!!!!

    Mexbound: The 75E is great for Canada and the Northern US but it is not large enough for lakeside. I abandoned that dish years ago and upgraded to a larger dish. I highly recommend that you check with your local satellite dealer and upgrade to a larger size dish. 

    My new larger dish is 122 cm in diameter. which happens to be about 4 feet in diameter. With this larger size dish, I have not had the type of problems you are having.

    With the 75E, I had signal strength problems.

    You are absolutely correct Pete, it´s the dish size.  Like you, I have the large dish and no problems at any time, get everything that Shaw offers.

    I bought two of their cinnamon buns to go. Driest most tasteless pastries ever. YMMV.

    Totally agree and the cardamon muffins are just as bad or worse....ugh!!!  Bagels are great if you have a hacksaw at home to cut them with.

    A bullying sort of way?  I guess you don't have a mirror to look in?

    You're bullying at me telling me to go away.  You are bullying me with your words and intent.

    Why is it that you can't offer any facts to prove your point?  Why is it that you and others, have to attack me, instead of providing some proof to support your beliefs??  You don't have any proof?

    Or how about this attempt to again, put me down personally, and which still doesn't offer any actual, supportive facts to support their position?

    "Al Gore has forgotten more about climate change than you will ever know."

    Such is just stupid.  I haven't claimed to know anything about Climate Change, except a little of what history has to offer.  AL Gore made claims of disaster, none of which has come true?  Can you prove this to be inaccurate or false?

    Each of you who've tried to discredit me, have ignored my written acknowledgement of, and belief in, Climate Change.  Instead, you've attacked the journalist's who wrote the articles quoting the "experts", and you ignore that the very same newspapers who've published those past articles, continue to publish more of the same! 

    Doesn't anybody actually THINK?  Are you completely unable to admit, simply admit, those things didn't take place?  Why would that be?

    They were printed in established papers, spoken by experts supporting what appears to be your "cause" and they were wrong.  Admit it.  Then move on!

    This doesn't make the whole Climate Change issue wrong, just those specific precognitions!  Get a life!  In a war, you may lose a few battles, fighting for your cause, but those losses don't mean you'll lose the war.

    Grow up and have the courage, if not humility, to admit, many forecasts related to disastrous events were simply wrong.

    Until you can do that, they only people who will listen to you are those just like you.  Want to make a difference?  What to help change the world?

    Start dealing honestly with facts and admit falsehoods.  Then people will listen.

    What a great world you'd create by attacking and trampling down any voice that doesn't agree with you, where there can be no peaceful discussion, only hate and disrespect.

    Which is most of what gets posted on this board, which is why there are so few gringos who bother to read or post here.  Just a sad little "click" who've nothing better to do.

    Doessn't matter the topic, Climate Change, Trump, Clinton, Biden, same thing, time after time.



    YAWN!!!   What a bunch of snooze material..............

    I don¨t believe the water quality of the lake make the fish unhealthy to consume. I, and thousands of others have been eating these fish for years.

    The number is $10,000us to trigger financial reporting.   If they have a total of over that amount in one shipment they must declare it ti the US government by law 

    Don´t think you can string a bunch of $9,999.99 USD checks and get away with it either, there are laws prohibiting that too.

    Not wrong. No financial instrument = no problem. Financial instrument = possible problem depending on amount. As to directly to Post Office.... do they walk in, wait in line, and hand it to someone behind the counter or drop it in the mailbox at the Post Office?

    Yes wrong....What possible problem???  There is NO problem with the amount, just that over a certain amount it has to reported. They take the mail to an unloading dock (I have been there) as there are 9 IShop stores in Jalisco, 2 Lakeside. 4 In Guadalajara, and 3 in P.V....PLUS small mail services around the country that use the IShop facility for US Mail delivery.

    You are really showing your ignorance about this issue as you have no idea how many packages, boxes, of art work and hundreds of other items that is shipped north to the US Mail and you say they are going to drop it into a "mail box".....Laughable!!!

    Wise up a little before you tell me I´m wrong, but really "me vale"
