  1. It is so sad. They are celebrating there loss at the local bar. What is so sad about that? Well, it's that I am in Seattle and couldn't go to the celebration
  2. OK now I figured out who you were. You didn't make a very good impression over there. They ran you off and then joked about it once you left. Too funny. Don't worry about what you posted it will not be repeated by me. You were too funny, and you thought you were being taken seriously. I just know that one day you stopped posting there and I was guessing why. Welcome back. You belong here
  3. Hey Gringohombre, So you are out of there. I'm up in Seattle for a few months, maybe you could stop by and have a drink on your way to, I think it was you who posted on TOB that you were going Alaska for a vacation. At least I think that was you posting that message using another name over there. If it is not you, you have a double, who posts just like you over there. How long are you going to be up in Alaska?. You know the days are very very long up there during the summer. It is kind of hard to sleep when the sun is out so long each day. You would be smarter to wait until late August or early Sept.
  4. I am so sad to have to tell you this greengo, but the US is planning the following. Just check it out with your friend and mine, Mr. Google. Oh and Mexico will also slowly be doing this. Phase-out of lightweight plastic bags in the United States Oh and there are other posts found on Google that there are 10 states. But the number of states at the moment is not important. It is what is happening in the US what is imprtant. We are phasing out ………………………………………………….
  5. I last time I renewed my Jalisco drivers license was in 2017 and I do remember that I got a discount using my INAPAN card. What I didn't remember is that it was that high of a discount. I was thinking it was closer to 20% or 30%. 50% is great
  6. gringohombre, why don't you go visit Mr. Google. He will update what you are posting. Here is a short quote on the subject: "More than 300 municipalities across the United States now ban or charge fees for single-use plastic bags. California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and American Samoa have banned them, as have 55 countries. Thirty-one more have imposed a fee."
  7. gringohombre we are just catching up with the US and Canada where they banned plastic bags several years ago. Apparently the amount of plastic used up north has dropped by a large %. Sadly, I do not remember what the percentages were/are. These days the stores up north are using paper bags which are recyclable. In Seattle, should you not bring you paper bag back to the grocery store, you are usually charged a whole 25 cents for a new one. And evil thought I wonder what would happen if I brought back an old plastic bag to use, when filling it with groceries at the checkout line at the local grocery stores in Seattle where I am at the moment. (Trouble is the only plastic bags I have are in Ajijic)
  8. Back in 2007 when I ordered my first panels which were rated at either 160 or 170 watts per panel, I also got 8 deep cell golf cart 6 volt batteries. And when CFE fails, I still have power provided by both the batteries and also the solar panels when the sun is out. (only the batteries at night) When I added panels later, they were independent and connected to other circuits and these stop working when CFE fails
  9. Well that explains your accent, gringohombre.
  10. Chingas! You're a Bermy?
  11. Up north in BC and I believe the rest of Canada, plastic is being replaced by recyclable products. The same in much if not all of the US, And it would appear also beginning in all of Mexico.
  12. Hey Gringo, I take it English isn't your first language. I want to compliment you though, you do not make that many mistakes. What you could do when you do not know what simple words mean like blanch, is to ask Mr. Google. This is what I have instructed him to tell you Blanching is a cooking process in which a food, usually a vegetable or fruit, is scalded in boiling water, removed after a brief, timed interval, and finally plunged into iced water or placed under cold running water to halt the cooking process. Blanching foods helps reduce quality loss over time
  13. You have made some great posts here and above, Mainecoons. When was it, about 15 years ago when we were all getting calls from fake millionaires wanting to share some of their money with us? There was one slightly well to do widower lakeside who wanted to believe these con letters. He went through all of his funds sending these funds to the con artist who needed just (for example) $2,000 US dollars, so that he could pay the overdue bank fees so that the con-artist could get his gold or millions of dollars out of his safe deposit box. And promised to give whoever helped him, by giving him 1/3 of severl million dollars or what have you. Con artist after con artist chipped away at all of his savings.. His children finally had to come to Ajijic and take him back up to his former home town the states. We never heard from him again
  14. What year is this Pontiac? I'm guessing maybe a 2006 +/- 4 years. Are the license plates from Jalisco? I notice that for some reason you do not have a picture of the front or rear of this car showing the license plates. Thanks in advance for your response.
  15. Hey virgo lady, I am just curious. How long does it take for the "pill camera" to make it through the body. Do you remember? Or do you know? Thanks in advance for your answer. I have always wondered, when I eat something, how long it takes for the waste to work its way through me.
  16. Well, fordtruckman is a member and he was made 332 posts, and Phil in Mexico has 267 and is a Newbie so just maybe when you hit 300, you go from Newbie to Member.
  17. Oh but we scientists do, it's our opinion of you, Gringohombre But we can't figure out the best way to tell you in private Only kidding, gringohombre.
  18. Not a billion dollars or a billion pesos. That would be too much. I know what they meant. One billion centavos which would be $10 million pesos or about $450,000 US dollars at 22.222+ pesos per US dollar. I just know that Carlos Slim is coming through for me and I am getting 19.9 down by 5.1 up regularly for either $389 or $425 pesos per month, I can't remember what I pay because it is so little and I'm in Seattle. Oh, and I can phone some 50 to 65 countries long distance for free on his Telmex phone line.
  19. I too have had great results using Jackie at H2ole.
  20. I always try Google search, and there are a few Joe Rayners mentioned, not always the right one though
  21. So, tell me, what is in Kool Aid? I bet a lot of sugar. I remember the name, but I'm guessing because it has a lot of sugar, I chose not to have any. I was lucky. My parents taught me to hate sugar. Don't bother to tell me, I just asked my friend, Mr. Google. He said that each cup of Kool-Aid includes 5 teaspoons of sugar and 5 artificial dyes that could be bad for you. No Kool-Aid for me.
  22. Hey, Youngtimer, I guess it is dependent upon where you live. In upper West Ajijic, I almost never have had problems with Telmex infinitum. Yes my speed isn't that fast, but it meets my needs. I almost always have about 19.7 down by 5.05 up. It has been very reliable. I have Cable as a backup. And hardly ever need to use them for a backup. Also have their TV which is in more use than their internetas a backup for Infinitum.
  23. Hey Mostlylost, thanks for suggesting I watch the video. Somehow I forgot to. The older 20 peso coins I have are circular, the one in the video has many sides. So they are reissuing it again. Looking at it in the video, it's beautiful. I wonder, though, how practical it will be to use. I'm up here in Seattle sitting in kind of sort of quarantine trying to get my taxes done (we've got until July 15th instead of April 15th this year to get them done because of the Coronavirus)
  24. I have one that I saved from years ago at home. It is bigger than the ten. I didn't know that they were reissuing them again. Check the date on your 20 peso coin, Eric. I thought that they stopped issuing them. Are they reissuing them again?
