  1. I have a type of acacia in the garden that does not grow very tall, It has similar foliage to the flamboyant or also called tabachin but does not grow large like flamboyant.. It is green all year round does not have a lot of garbage, it is close to the pool and no problem.. it has small red flowers . I bought it at the nursery at the back of Paz liquor. The tabachin  I have was planted in 68 and is enormous, a great tree but need space, do not buy the tulip tree that has red flowers, it produces garbage all year round. I t also grows huge. I have 2 planted in 68 as well and wish I could cut them down.. The flowers stick to the brick path and are slippery it not picked up every day, the pods are difficult to pick up  when they open they produce a snow like seeds that invade everything and clog the pool , the leaves are also a pain to pick up.. every single season that tree produces garbage.. stay away from it. It also grows very large.

    The orchid of the poor tree  also stay fairly small and have flowers, pink or yellow or other colors. It has round leaves

  2. depending on  where you are in Miami obviously.

    I take the comment as an off handed a tongue and cheek comment not as an insult to anyone . It is not a bad idea to learn Spanish if you live in a Spanish speaking are no matter where and  although Lakeside may seems to be an English speaking area  it is not, when you scratch the surface.and there are instances when you could be sorry you do not speak Spanish.

  3. Can you daughter access your schwab account? Open a bank account in Mexico and have your daughter send money or do it yourself to your Mexican bank when you want it  so you can limit the access to your fund in general.It is easy to transfer finds from Schwab to another bank including a Mexican bonk. While you are well you can withdraw with your Schwab card but if you are not your daughter can control what goes into Mexico and check the withdrawls. DO not give a POS to a nursing home, that is crazy.. You could do automatic basic payments to them but do not give them POA

  4. Taxis are cheap? Not in the Lake area compared to other places in Mexico that is for sure. In San Cristobal I pay 35 to 40 pesos anywhere in toen Here 70 pesos to go 8 blocks.. not cheap at all but convenient if you have to carry something.

  5. Yesterday i went to pick up my passport at the French  consulate in Guadalajara  and then took all the paper social security wanted from , put them in an envelope  with addreses  etc and took it to the US consulate  as the dead line was tomorrow.When to the window to give the papers and was told to send them.via Fedex.. so i had to go a few blocks away to send the packet basically accross the street for 35o pesos  and there was another guia for them to return the originals to me when i will prlbably not be there to receive them..So it cost me 700 pesos so tbey could lose 2500 pesos worth of orginal papers..

    I do not think our lives are improved by all this organisation designed to give zero customer service for a higher price and for the ease of tbe bureaucrats.

    After dealing with the us, French and Mexican bureaucrats  i see that the us are number 1 for being awful  and France number 2.. the Mexican come nu.ber3 , at least it is cheaper to deal with them.

  6. Yes I agree checking what is acceptable is a good idea.. It would also be nice if schwab would answer what is available instead of giving canned answers..which means nothing and I am sick of spending money because bureaucrats cannot be bothered to do their jobs.

    You need to check if an online notary is acceptable.. The online notary that’s promoted here and Facebook will tell you it’s acceptable. I know a couple of instances where her fee was paid but the documents were not acceptable. No refund.. so I would check first.
