  1. We have been using Bellon for many years; excellent service. One car accident resolved without a problem.
  2. Got mine earlier this year at Costco in Texas; no doctor prescription.
  3. I use the UnDosTres app on my Iphone; simply enter the meter number and the amount owed to CFE comes up. You can use a US credit card to pay.
  4. This used to happen at Soriana on a frequent basis.
  5. If you are going to cross at the Rio Grande Valley take the route thro Monterrey. A bridge on highway 101 collapsed on the shorter southbound route through Ciudad Victoria.
  6. I am guessing the carbon filter is a tank with carbon vs a carbon cartridge and if so then I am guessing the carbon is old and leaching off some of the organics or other stuff it adsorbed. If the UV sterilizer is after the carbon then this maybe generating the smell in the water; try unplugging the UV and see how the water smells; if it still smells then if it was me I would replace the carbon or bypass the filter. I use a 4" x 20" carbon impregnated filter cartridge which works very well and I change the cartridge every 4 months. I do not use UV but have an under the sink RO system for kitchen use.
  7. Here is a link to a comparison table of specifications for all FireTV products. https://developer.amazon.com/docs/fire-tv/device-specifications-comparison-table.html Now you can all fight about which features are better.
  8. I have tested both WiFi and ethernet cables many times with a Firestick 4K and a FireTV Cube. WiFi was always fastest on a speed test using Nperf website; my opinion was that the multifunction ethernet adapter was relatively poor.
  9. ACD your post has nothing to do with this thread; start your own thread with whatever you want to discuss.
  10. I had an appointment this morning; got there 10 minutes early; there was a lineup of 6 people of which only 3 had appointments. There is a sign at the entrance that says you need to have an appointment. It takes 10-15 minutes to process each person and then they ask you to come back in 20 minutes to verify the info. They ask the reason for the test and if you say travel they want to see your passport; the results document that they email you you does have your passport number on it and your age but not your date of birth.
  11. I have glass block skylights in a similar pattern; i used to caulk with silicone every year just before rainy season. A few years ago I switched to Total Tech as shown in the picture; it stands up much better than the silicone I was using. I bought the caulking tubes of Total Tech at Home Depot and I think I have also seen it in Walmart.
  12. Who does PCR testing required to go to Canada ?
  13. Go to vaccines.gov and you can see what vaccines are available at what pharmacy by zip code.
  14. Through segurogringo.com I was able to purchase $300,000 excess liability coverage from National Unity Insurance company.
  15. I have tested a Firestick 4K on both WiFi and ethernet cable fed from a router (not the Ilox modem); WiFi performs a little better on a speedtest. Now that Ilox seems to be more stable in the last few months I am using Wifi from a router without any buffering.
  16. For those of you interested in the Firestick there is a great website "troypoint.com" with many do it yourself videos and guides on how to set up a Firestick.
  17. Talked to the officer blocking the corner down to the park; he said it was impossible to tow as the cars were parked to tightly together; he said he would be here at 7:00 am today and will watch.
  18. The inconsiderate jerk that blocked access to my garage finally left at 7:45; 12 hours later. I left a note on his car and he didn't have the balls to come to the door and apologize and say he was moving his car so I could get out. South Dakota plates 19B D90; JERK
  19. I don't know; I haven't tried that and I doubt if my Spanish is good enough to figure it out.
  20. I think when it is time to get the shot any approved vaccine is better than nothing.
  21. Recharging the Amigo program is so easy on Mitelcel or if it doesn't work which happens occasionally then use the UnDosTres app. No need to go to see Ana.
  22. Crossed in November from Texas to Matamoros; we have Jalisco plates; pulled up to the red light and a few seconds later it turned green and the gate arm lifted. Never saw anyone. I will be crossing back into Mexico again in a few weeks.
