  1. It kinda looks like Boston before the "Big Dig". The old Pierce elevated.
  2. You need to hire a good drama coach. Your "Holier than Thou" shtick is a bit lame. Regards, Pappy
  3. Yes, the old "high road" and "low road" solution. Made all kinds of sense but perhaps someone on the "low road" had enough pull to kill it.
  4. Hahaha....In most of the world...those vehicles obey the same traffic laws as everyone else unless they are responding to an emergency. Certainly you are aware of that. Making a left onto Colon with several guys standing in the back of their Paddy Wagon at normal speed with no lights flashing is the equivalent of giving everyone the finger and you know it.
  5. They banned left turns onto many of the north-south streets many years ago. When you watched the police vehicles regularly ignore that you learned they weren't really serious. Just as red lights, stop signs, etc. are merely suggestions. When in Rome...
  6. Congratulations on your upcoming move! Gender:Male Location:Soon to be Greenville SC
  7. I think he and his wife are from NJ. As always, I stand to be corrected.
  8. You are very close to Thomas Paine "To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead".
  9. Do you remember, before the internet, people thought the cause of stupidity was the lack of information available? No, that wasn't it.
  10. Patience Tom. They always say it's not socialism that doesn't work but rather the people who fail to implement it correctly. It's a work in progress I guess.
  11. Way too complicated for my simple brain. Checkers challenges me, but I really like Liars Poker. Plenty of skill involved there.
  12. au contraire If they don't have half a brain they're supposed to be infuriated. Those who "get it" will be LOL-ing at those who don't and respond with typical vitriol.
  13. If you have to add "sarcasm" to the end of a post...you aren't doing it right. It's supposed to be evident to anyone with half a brain...and intended to infuriate the rest.
  14. Why do you want to leave Progreso? Too much seaweed and blowing sand? That's why we took a pass some years ago when we checked it out.
  15. Not funny...some of us have actually had a finger cut off. What is fairly humorous is when you go to a real estate closing or for something else where you need to have fingerprints taken. The usual person at the "window" has to call for a supervisor.
  16. So...that's still the MO there? I don't remember those two gentlemen but I do remember quite a few newbie guys deciding to dress like that after a couple of months at lakeside. New tricks for old dogs. The guy on the right.
  17. Things must have changed since we first went there in 2000. Back then it was mostly new members of the LCS who mainly joined "to meet some new people". So they put them at the front desk to answer questions from other newbies and promised them they would meet "lots of new people". Never mind about giving out misinformation...the idea was to make new acquaintances. Worked for lots of folks but that was our last visit.
  18. ...You and a hundred others. Look hard by walking around and knocking doors. Don't believe a word about internet speed or quiet. You must do your own due diligence for that. Suerte
  19. I have had two hernia repairs done by Dr. Armando Joya in PV. Neither one was hiatal but he specializes in bariatric surgery and so hernias are like kindergarten work for him. I had one done in GDL which only lasted 1+ years and if I ever need another one I will definitely fly back to PV to have him do it. Went home in a taxi a few hours after surgery, returned next day in a taxi for wound cleaning and felt strong enough to walk the mile and a half home. The guy knows what he is doing and especially during high season is quite busy.
  20. We were also told by an attorney that this was how you get around a similar problem if ever needed. We never needed to so thanks for confirming it does (did?) work.
  21. I think you're leaving out one major cost in Mexico that you didn't have to pay in the US. The weekly or monthly payment to, ahem, not be "bothered" by disruptive influences. It doesn't show up on the books but lots of owners have to pay it and they sure as heck don't talk about it.
  22. Well...they did contact me and I gave you a 5 Star vote. You should be all set by now. Wait...who else did you use as a reference?
  23. Send your resume to the Admin if you want to be a Mod. Otherwise just ignore the posts that don't interest you. I suspect most Texans are very pleased with you following his wisdom. I'm very aware many Coloradans don't care for Texans. It is what it is. Pretty good for a 3 year old by the way, LOL Cheers
  24. Hey MC...next time you're coming to the Valley hit me up for a place to get a burger that will knock you out! Another board member turned me onto it and all I can say is WOW! Can't give you the name because it doesn't have one! But I can tell you how to find it. Just order one for the both of you and you'll probably still take a bag away. Just don't tell everyone.
