  1. 2003...Super Lake...Rye bread LOL
  2. Our GP is also saying October. He says for many people the protection is much lower after about 4 months and he says you really want the protection Dec.-Feb. and it takes a month for peak immunity. Pick your doc and they probably all have a different story. Sounds reasonable to us so we'll be getting it next month. YMMV
  3. How did you find the courage to finally contact the only people who could give you the true answer? How much tequila was needed before you sent that email?
  4. Insurance cancellations requested by the insured are paid at what is known as "Short Rate" cancellations. As the name implies you don't get a pro rated refund.
  5. Especially those who went to school to eat their lunch.
  6. ...Not if they actually use their vacation days.
  7. Seeing how some people wear their mask has explained to me why contraception sometimes fails.
  8. When we first moved to lakeside in 2002 we bought most of our beef at the Municipal market in Joco. Beef was beef...all cuts were the same price even filet but there was one catch...you had to preorder and you had to buy the whole filet. Oh darn!!
  9. Unfortunately, this is a fact of life for Melaque. We were there for a similar one same time of year many years ago. The highlight (?) was watching the young kids throw coconuts at the alligators roaming the flooded streets. Only in Mexico!
  10. Programmers aren't what they used to be. They don't like to test their work much when they make changes to websites. They complain it's "Dog Work" which is beneath their lofty opinions of themselves. Trust me.
  11. Yes...wasn't that fun Tom? Nice to see you again though.
  12. The crooks take things very seriously and are generally 3 steps ahead of the mark. Several years ago we were in Italy and had been warned about the gypsies and were ready for them with money belts. While on the subway a group of them surrounded us as we stood near a doorway. One pushed a baby right in my wife's face and as she gently tried to keep it away I noticed a hand come over her shoulder and start to unzip her jacket. I reacted by karate chopping that hand but much to my surprise just as I did I felt a hand LEAVING my front pocket! She wasn't the mark, I was! Luckily I only had reading
  13. "High season" may not be so high if Canadians are unable to drive down this winter. This thing looks to be lasting a long time.
  14. The availability of financing of used cars some time ago fueled much of the increase in vehicles. Previously, it was cash or use the bus. It was great to see more "average" Mexicans be able to afford cars but the infrastructure was never meant to handle them, thus the congestion.
  15. They are "virtue signaling". It has become very important recently.
  16. Maybe I'm crazy but I would simply tell him what I wanted done and when he finished I would ask "Cuanto hoy?" Whatever he said I would pay with a smile and then if I felt it was fair I would continue to use him, the same way, unless or until I began to feel cheated. I almost can't believe anyone is asking such a broad, open ended question as this here. As mudgirl said, who can say how much work is involved (or perhaps, how little).
  17. Nobody knows what the final bill will look like. Cool your heels until it's signed into law. Especially...don't go spending it yet.
  18. Here in the RGV we have many more cases than in some of the more interior counties of Texas. Forget people with no documents, there are many people with green cards who have every right to cross into Texas and many of them do to seek healthcare during this pandemic.
  19. Actually WM and all the big box stores just announced they will not refuse to allow people without masks to enter. Trying to avoid confrontations. That's in the US. AA has advised they will refuse boarding to anyone without a mask, regardless if they have a medical reason to not wear one. We live in interesting times.
  20. Well he just moved last month. Not recent enough? El Serape had mostly ferners and a few Mexicans and did fairly well.
  21. The OP asked for an opinion as to whether it will succeed. What difference does it make where a respondent now lives if said respondent has some knowledge of the topic? The OP was just asking for opinions, lol.
  22. Used to be able to get USTVNOW on Roku but a year or two ago Roku kicked them off for allegedly being pirates which they deny. You can sign up and watch on your Android phone which is probably not what you want to do. So just buy a Chromecast device, plug it into your tv and then you can cast your phone to the tv. I do it all the time since USTV is the cheapest streaming way to get ESPN and some other channels without a $60 package that includes lots of channels I don't care about. And, as previously mentioned, you don't need a VPN.
  23. Yeah, and they'll probably try to bring their "California" ideas with them. Similar to how many people from the US and Canada move to Mexico and then start complaining about noise, loose dogs, crummy trash collection, crooked politicians, lax enforcement of environmental regs, etc., etc.
  24. We appreciate all efforts to dissuade people from moving to Texas. Thanks and please continue those efforts.
