  2. Count the number of zeros.
  3. I have gotten good information and help from the Telmex 800 number in the past. This time, I needed to re-activate an account that was in arrears. I called and got a good English speaker and asked him if I pay the bill at OXXO, would the account automatically be activated. He was not sure and offered to connect me with the billing department, but doubted that an English speaker would be available. I thanked him for his help and told him that I would pay it and see what happened. I paid the bill and waited until the next day to see what happened. Nothing changed, so I entered 331 520 9621
  4. Thanks. artsnob. Trying to minimize the worry. Did you receive your new passport the same day as your first appointment or did you have to return for it? Is it a standard passport or is it a modified "emergency" one? Any information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
  5. My passport expires before my flight to the US in mid-October. After I made the reservations, I sent an email to the consulate for information and they replied that I should send another email requesting an appointment two weeks before my flight. I have the photos and the forms that I need, but have no idea what to expect when the time comes to email the renewal request. Would like to hear from some folks that have first hand experience recently renewing their US passport. Thank you.
  6. East side of Allen W. Lloyd, a short distance north of Café Negro and Papeleria Trinidad. https://www.google.com/maps/@20.2985146,-103.240832,3a,75y,73.15h,87.6t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLIysPm015pOVsqEfPuJeOg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  7. Thanks, everybody. These flowers are unusual and pretty and I did not recognize them as dahlias. Now I know.
  8. Different specimens with different colored flowers of the same plant . The first photo shows the long brown flower stem with an out of focus flower and the leaf structure. The second photo is another specimen with a different colored flower. There's also one with an all white flower. Google image search was no help.
  9. Ismat's is closed. The steel door is down, the sign is gone and there's a se vende sign in its place.
  10. USTVnow does not offer a free option as of a couple of weeks ago. The best that you can get without paying is a ten day trial. They blamed the change on the pandemic.
  11. OP is referring to Black Vultures. You can compare them with Crested Caracaras on the attached links. It is a common sight to see Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures congregating together in the eucalyptus trees in lower La Floresta. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black_Vulture/id https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Crested_Caracara/id
  12. Here is a link to the Lake Chapala Birders website. Click on newsletters for lots of information and galleries for some nice photos. They will be happy to add you to their once a month mailing list. https://chapalabirders.org/
  13. Birds that are nectar feeding , raucous, in pairs and the size of robins sounds like they are orioles. https://www.google.com/search?q=orioles+at+hummingbird+feeder&sxsrf=ALeKk00dcz2CuqxaShW3B7bq4rHJbQvNSQ:1588446046982&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjR4P_S7pXpAhUJVa0KHQ5FDzYQ_AUoAXoECBcQAw&biw=1366&bih=625
  14. His name is Joel Galliano, from Galliano, LA. It is south of New Orleans on Bayou Lafourche near the Gulf of Mexico. He has been a chef in New Orleans, Mexico and other places. He is an inventive and talented cook. His new place is worth a try. I enjoyed the food and will go back.
