  1. I was introduced to an over-the-counter pain medicine here that the dentist said worked particularly well for dental pain called Supradol (sublingual) that is not a narcotic and works better than any pain pill I have ever used for dental pain. If anyone is getting dental work that might involve pain, you might want to ask your dentist about it.
  2. 332 area code? I thought that area code was reserved for Puerto Vallarta. Can you move a phone line from Puerto Vallarta to Lakeside? Never mind. Maybe he is using a PV cell phone here at Lakeside.
  3. A street in Riberas -- perfectly fine to the Chapala Government Street in Chapala (Zaragoza) in need of repair -- according to the Chapala Government.
  4. Hang 3-hook fishing hooks (treble hooks) from piano wire at different heights from your tree branches.
  5. http://info.legalzoom.com/states-holographic-wills-legal-3748.html States That Permit Holographic Wills Roughly half of the states recognize holographic wills and will admit a holographic will to probate. While the number of witnesses varies, the admission of a holographic will to probate requires disinterested witnesses to testify that a holographic will is in the handwriting of the testator. As of November 2010, the states that permit holographic wills to probate include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming. States That Permit Holographic Wills for Active Military Only In New York and Maryland, a holographic will is only valid if drafted by an active member of the U.S. Armed Forces that is serving in an armed conflict, or a member of the merchant marines. A holographic will drafted by such individuals is valid until one year after they finish serving active duty. Both New York and Maryland will not accept any other holographic wills to probate, even under their foreign wills statute. States That Only Admit Holographic Wills as Foreign Wills Some states do not accept a holographic will to probate that is drafted within the state, but accept a holographic will to probate that has been drafted in another state that permits holographic wills under their foreign wills provision. As of November 2010, the states that will only accept a holographic will to probate as a foreign will are Connecticut, Hawaii, South Carolina and Washington. States That Do Not Allow Holographic Wills Other states do not accept holographic wills in any form, even as a foreign will or for active military members. These states are Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin.
  6. We all complain... but a lot of vendors go out of their way to take care of us. Most notably today was Jesus -- handling the store while Pancho was gone. I teased him about the resemblance to Marlon Brando. Feedback? (He is a nice man.) No, I did not post all the pictures of all the young girls from Guadalajara who came in. Obviously, i am not with the girls because we solved string theory at my university and we have not much to talk about but that one thing.
  7. You know better than to post political statements on this forum Your post has therefor been deleted Mod5
  8. The flies are bad. Both SuperLake and Walmart have been out of even the hand-held ones. SuperLake finally had the itty bitty ones in for about 8 pesos. They have the electric ones on MercadoLibre... just search for "matamoscas." I believe you can order and pay at Oxxo or 7-11 if you do not want to use a Credit Card or Debit Card.
  9. You can have my Mexican girlfriend. She is great in bed and looks like a Playboy model but she doesn't make any money, b*tches a lot, does not clean and cannot travel with me anywhere because she has to spend every weekend with her mother.
  10. Lobster Weighing Over 20 Pounds Spotted In Logan Luggage June 26, 2017
  11. Yep. My Spanish does not include some odd hardware items and going in and asking if they have that "chingalara thingy" doesn't always get the desired results! <g> I have even printed the picture of a tool to bring with me.
  12. For example, if it is a document that you need to sign and then have scanned, the print shop will print it for you, then you can then sign it and then they will scan the signed copy for you and put the scanned copy on your thumb drive. You can copy the signed document and then you will have a hard copy for your files and an electronic copy in case you ever need to print another copy of it.
  13. A few years ago I took a Bus (Omnibus, I believe) to Houston from the Central de Autobus location in Guadalajara. It was plenty comfortable for me. Just remember to bring a travel pillow and have a light blanket or light jacket handy as they do crank up the A/C. I think it was about $100 USD one-way.

  15. I know it is a cultural thing, but, I also get tired of having to light the pilot light on the water heater every time the wind blows. Three (or maybe 4) days in a row now since the rainy season started. I have a rental house, or would have an on-demand water heater and a built-in generator or a Tesla Home battery and inverter at the very least. I have no clue what Mexicans do to chocolate to make it undesirable to me, what they do to ice cream to make it undesirable to me or why they stand in line to buy grilled field corn. This is simply a matter of taste and cultural differences. But surely crappy utilities that fail and need to be rebooted, re-lit and/or fixed every time the wind blows or every time it rains cannot be a cultural thing,.. a patience thing, yes. But, nobody can really be happy with such inefficiency. Don't get me wrong. I am one of those people who spends his entire life picking things up off the floor. Everything I touch ends up on the floor. Nuts and bolts, ice cream, food, spoons, knives, forks, lids for jars, ice cubes, every thing on the on the planet that I touch ends up on the floor. It is frustrating and I deal with it. But it doesn't mean I want to deal with it! Couldn't someone invent a pilot light that does blow out every day? Or connect electric wires that hold up in a light rain? If nothing else than for the poor schmucks like me who spend the other 97% of their lives picking everything up off the floor?
  16. I didn't know about Cryptohippie until you mentioned it and looked it up. What a great corporate structure and diversification of jurisdictional and departmental control. I will definitely be looking into using them for the sensitive, intellectual property discussion side of my business. Thanks.
  17. The first rain completely knocked out the power in my part of Riberas all night until 10 a.m. the next day. Last night's rain put the power in brownout mode in my part of Riberas all night last night until 7:30 a.m. It is such a shame that a couple of raindrops completely overwhelms the infrastructure. My electric bills are through the roof. It is very frustrating that none of the exorbitant fees they charge seem to be spent on hiring people with proper skills or emergency repairs. God forbid we get both high winds and rain. I will have to move into a hotel for a week just to get electric to run my laptop so I can earn enough to pay the CFE bills!
  18. Computerland in Riberas that has been there for 10 years. I buy English keyboards and other peripherals there all the time (used and new) at a fraction of the price of Benno's. The store is run much more professionally and now they have a new tech that can even soup up your gaming tower if that is how you roll.

  19. All y'all liberals here don't need to worry since it will only apply to Visa applicants and none of you need Visas to get into the USA.. Plus, it's not like the FEMA Camps Hillary had set up for NRA members are now going to be used by Trump to house gray snowflakes who re-post someone else's dementia to their own Facebook page.
  20. The Drudge Report has been running an article for two days about how boomers can live well in Latin America Retirees flock to Latin America... Upper-class lifestyle for $1,500 a month...
  21. Lake Chapala Gains Status as Sport Fishing Venue They show a picture of showing a couple of Largemouth Bass, claiming they caught one 2.75 Kilos (about 6 lbs) I'm just not buying into this. The lake has been over-fished so much that no fish get big enough to breed, let alone get to 2.75 kilos. What's the deal? Am I just misinformed on the over-fishing?
  22. There is now a company selling really nice mobile stages so anybody can set up a Fiesta anywhere at any time -- in any vacant field, at the end of any street, in any park, in any neighborhood! Regardless of anybody's opinion on noise, you gotta admit, this is a very well done portable stage.

  23. Investing and safeguarding your assets is often as much a matter of which currency you retain your assets in, as where you retain your assets. The article below is from 2011 and was accurate then and fairly accurate is today. (Naturally without considering new gold-backed currencies and crypto-currencies.) I am anxious to see an updated article containing those new factors. The Four Real "Safe-Haven" Currencies So if we're searching for safe-haven currencies, which ones should we look at? The European euro? That won't do - there's too much of a chance of it splitting in two. That would be either good or bad - good if the weak-sister PIIGS of Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain split off to form their own weak bloc (leaving the euro strong), or bad if Germany and a few stronger countries split off (leaving only the weaker currencies in the euro). Either way, the euro is a risk, and a big one: After a split, the currencies would probably shift by 20% to 30% against each other, to give the weaker countries a chance of exporting their way out of problems. The British pound sterling? What a very sweet, old-fashioned idea. If this were 1911 - or, better still, 1821 - this would be the ideal safe haven. But it's 2011, and Britain has all the same problems as the United States - only to a greater degree. The Japanese yen? Japan has a much worse debt problem than the United States, and only the fact that Japan owes all that money to itself is keeping the Japan Government Bond (JGB) market stable. The Chinese renminbi? A fashionable solution, but the reality is that China still won't let its own citizens get their money out freely. What's more, there is a huge glop of bad debts in the Chinese banking system that at some stage will cause big problems - so big, in fact, that the 2008 financial-system crash and collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings (PINK: LEHMQ) will seem like a springtime stroll. Such afterthoughts as the Brazilian real, Australian dollar or Canadian dollar? While I'll grant you that Canada is much-better run than the United States, the ugly truth is that Brazil and Australia are no better run than any other country. In fact, all three of these countries had the great fortune to be heavily dependent on commodities at a time when commodity prices happened to soar. If commodity prices decline, the innate problems facing each of these currencies' problems will become painfully apparent. As our trip around the world There are thus very few safe-haven currencies for you to invest in. There are actually four clear winners: The Swiss franc: Switzerland is the ideal European country - chiefly because it has a large-but-safe banking system. The Swiss National Bank made UBS AG (NYSE: UBS) and Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE ADR: CS) recapitalize themselves properly and have forced the two to do more wealth management and less investment banking. The Norwegian crown: Norway has oil, a large trust fund and no European Union membership. That trust fund (actually a very-well-managed, $570 billion sovereign wealth fund) makes this one ideal - even if oil prices collapse. The Singapore dollar: This is a beautifully run country - the least corrupt in the world, in fact - and is a banking-and-trading entrepôt, to boot. The Chilean peso: Yes, I'm recommending a South American currency as a safe-haven currency - my 1970s global-merchant banking colleagues would recoil in horror. All the same, Chile is less corrupt than the United States. It has a commodity economy, but is better run than Australia (and less likely to be under cut by cheaper labor, since Chilean labor is still quite cheap). And it has a trust fund (sovereign wealth fund) to guard against a return of low commodity prices.
