  1. I used my Handymail address in Laredo and had no problem opening an account at USAA. They have treated me well for a long time. I highly recommend USAA
  2. Does anyone know if Mark Turford is still renting cars long term, or anyone else that would be renting cars locally. Would appreciate a name and contact phone or e-mail for Mark or other rental place. Thanks
  3. Is there a telephone number that we can call to make an appointment for renewal? Thanks
  4. Confused


    Tony´s Carneceria, San Antonio, next to Superlake, Hot Italian
  5. If you plan to travel at all in the U.S. sign up for part B. It will be cheaper than travel ins. in the U.S. If there is any chance at all, even a remote chance, that you may one day move back to the U.S., do not opt out of part B. Personal experience is my source of information. You will pay a penalty for the rest of your life. Your choice, but I would advise not opting out of part B.
  6. I am looking for a car top carrier, does anyone know where I could purchase one of these things. One of those things that look like a coffin on top of a car. Any help finding one would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. I would recommend Zeni Optical. Got my prescription from Dr. Claudia Camacho and then ordered the glasses from Zeni. Very happy
  8. Thank You for your answers, it´s appreciated.
  9. Can someone please tell me the monthly cost of Ilox using internet only. Thank You
  10. Very happy to hear that volunteer funds will be used to fund this project, I also am willing to participate in the funding. What is sickening is the fact that many streets in San Antonio and other villages have been repaired, but only minimal work needs to be done to maintain these streets but once the work is done they are forgotten until they totally self destruct. What a shame, it would only cost a little to keep them up. Their heart is in the rite place, but the brain isn't.
  11. How it will work: Speaking from experience You, the employer do not know how little it will cost you to get rid of a real headache. You the employer will have to hire a lawyer at very little cost. You, the employer feel like you have been unjustly wronged. Your gardener, the employee, either knows someone, or will go to the labor court, but before he even gets into the court building there will be 20 people representing Labor Lawyers that will be handing out their cards and telling you, the gardener that they will represent you for free. Your gardener pays nothing for his lawyer. Yo
  12. I renewed in Cihuatlan, Jal. Only gave the Circulation card from last year, they processed it in about 2 Min. paid the fee and I was gone. All done in about 5 Min. I don't know what they are doing in Chapala, but it is different and you get the same renewal.
  13. You would be well advised to contact a lawyer to take care of this. Do not deal with the Labor Office, the Labor Office normally helps those who get fired and are not properly paid the severance that is due them. There are several lawyers that can prepare the proper documents for you. This could bite you in the ### if you do not take care of it properly. That is experience talking!
  14. FYI, I have had a Bancomer account (both checking and investment) for 10 years. In that time I have never had a time that they would not take my U.S. Dollar check. I have had very little issues with Bancomer and have been happy there. I have read of all the issues, (mostly by the same person) and have never had any of those issues. Banking laws have changed and I cannot say for certain that you can or cannot open an account on a tourist visa. I know for certain though, using this forum as a litmus test when it comes to banking is likely a bad idea. Multiva is a good investment h
  15. Same thing happened to my wife. Here is how we solved that. Go to Telmex and change the name on your phone bill. It was fast, and we had the proof on the next phone bill. That is a possible solution
  16. I know that New Look Studios makes home calls. 766-6000
  17. Don't know where you are from, but you will always be welcomed at American Legion Post 7 in Chapala. When you arrive be sure to stop in and say hello. You will find a wealth of information there and if you are a reader, there is a library there. The best to you on your first visit here. Welcome!
  18. Was there yesterday ( Sunday) and all was quiet, no protesters, just slow traffic because of the construction in front of the terminal.
  19. I had them brought down, but they have a toll free number, give them a call
  20. I have been wearing hearing aids for about 15 years. I have had very expensive hearing aids that my insurance paid for years ago. I have since had to replace them. I now have digital hearing aids that are inexpensive and work just as well for me as the expensive ones. I paid about $650 U.S. for two and have been wearing them for three years. Here is the website where I purchased my last pair. This my not be for everyone, I am just saying that they work for me and I wear them from morning to night. https://www.mdhearingaid.com/
  21. Puritan Poultry would be our choice. Never had a bad experience there.
  22. Hello, I am in need of a Shaw 75E satellite dish and a newer model LNB. Old one got broken in a storm. If you know where I can get one or you have one that you would sell, It would be greatly appreciated. Don't need the receiver, just the dish and LNB. Thanks
  23. Does anyone have any experiences that they can share regarding license plates from the state of Mexico. These are plates that people with Perminente status are buying. Are these plates legal, can one insure your car, can they be used to travel to the U.S. Etc. The plates have been around for a while so they are being issued. Thanks for your reply
  24. I am looking for someone who might be going to Guadalajara for drivers license renewal with a facilitator. Any help in this area would be appreciated.
  25. If you are a Veteran and have a Handymail or other address that forwards your mail you can open a USAA account. USAA has no foreign transaction fee as well as they reimburse your ATM fees once a month. For me it is the best thing going. B of A started charging a 3 % foreign transaction fee and I opened the USAA account and have been happy for the past couple of years. I use Bancomer in Mexico. You may be able to get a USAA checking account even if you are not a Veteran, if you have family that is military connected. usaa.com
