  2. Here is an excerpt from an interview with Michael Eager. He says there were no other hotels. A very good interview.


    We ran it for 15 years and it was the local watering hole. There were no other restaurants, there were no other bars, and there were no other hotels, so if you wanted to know what was going on in the world you would go down to the old Posada and talk to some of the new hotel guests to find out what’s going on in the States or what was going on in Canada. Either that, or you would listen to my father giving his idea of the ideal world.

    I went to 2 banks in which I have accounts and both said it was against banking rules to accept checks over $1000 USD. And also against the law to send checks by mail....looks like some of us will have to wait.  I'm hoping that someone with some authority will make a special exemption for these Treasury checks as the money will be spent in Mexico.

    I understood you can send checks under 10,000 usd by mail. If you have online banking, you can send it that way to your bank in the US.
