  1. Why would anyone go through Houston quickly. I've never been through there and would never go through there. Wife's family(and her) would never let us go on 101either.
  2. #101, is that the "infamous" hwy of Death, referred to by most Mexicans?
  3. The current Interior Secretary is Ryan Zinke, appointed by President Trump, FYI. Bennet is available to do lots of "honey do " stuff, as his voting record is really clear; he is what is referred to in Washington as an "obstructionist", a senator that puts the interest of non-Americans above those of American Citizens. (FYI).
  4. If that ;person can show proof that they live full time in Mexico and are just visiting the US with a Mexican car, there would never be a problem. The only problem is if you live in the US, you cannot have a Mexican plated car. They are sometimes asking lots of questions now, sometimes not. Just be prepared with the proof. I would not be surprised that in the next few years, if you want to enter the US with a Mexican plated car, you might need a visitors permit, like the Mexicans. That is the only way the US will know for sure that you are really just visiting with that car. YOMD.
  5. That is funny ! Don't you think something like that treaty condition is moot, after 170 years! If Mexico does not respect decisions by the US on handling the US Border, how could they EVER expect the US to respect such an obscure condition from 170 years ago. HA ! BTW, that condition was ONLY for those Mexicans living in the territory (about 500 verifiable ), and for NO OTHERS. Prove you are a descendent !
  6. Was that Peter, Paul, and Mary? Great Group ! Loved them !
  7. FYI, I only read as far as your incorrect post, so I responded to it at that point. Did not have the time to read farther. I think you could have deleted it, if I am not mistaken, if you were already aware it was incorrect by the time I posted. If it were me, I would have done that, and I would be more concerned next time to be sure that I did not ;post any more Fake News. But, that is just how I respond. YMMD
  8. Actually, "you don’t hear a peep from Trump" is a false statement. Check out what has been said and done BEFORE you make absurd and foolish statements.
  9. I find that if you have a Mexican last name, you always seem to get the discount. Not always so if your last name is not Mexican. Maybe you last name is Mexican?
  10. I'm sure that must have been the intention of this "air" guy. and he was treated so rudely/. WoW ! That is what makes living in Mexico safer than NOB. All the extra security measures and precautions needed here to survive here. Viva Mexico !
  11. I would like to know how you tell the difference. Just take a chance and if you pick wrong, tough? Or be wary of strangers bearing gifts? Help.
  12. There is absolute disrespect for laws and rarely enforcement here. When those few attempt to do what they were hired to do, all hell breaks loose. Ref. NOB.
  13. Actually, it seems to me that those who have chosen this lifestyle have less of a need for family times and grandchildren than most people who treasure the experiences of seeing grandchildren growing up and being at their activities. I would say that family closeness is not(and probably has never been) one of the strong suits of this group. Each to his own. Family is still very important to many NOB, and that is a major factor why many do not choose to live out their days away from what makes them happy.
  14. Careful. Al, they will accuse you of promoting homosexuality, instead of just reporting a fact, like bman did. Sad when people are put down for stating the truth. But, then it easily identifies the "Elitists" among us.
  15. Didn't take long for the attacks to begin ! Actually, the post by the bman is accurate and whether you like it or not does not change its validity. I don't think you can call the bman's comment "misogynistic". Check the definition.
  16. Has anyone had this? Would appreciate any info you would be willing to share. When/where? How long to notice whether it benefited you or not? The positives/negatives? If it did help, what did it do for you? How many treatments? PMs are welcome. Thank You !
  17. I found (from personal experience) that getting an ice pack on the sting quickly stops the burning/stinging and takes care of the swelling. Certainly an antihistamine will benefit also. Remember, ICE is a very good friend for many injuries.
  18. That is why, RV, people need to trust the advice of Sonia and Spencer when these questions are asked. Other "so called experts" just continue to create panic and confusion for "their personal enjoyment"? Shame on them, no?
  19. Maybe that is because this is NOT a MAJOR city either. People seem to always compare this place to MAJOR US cities where sections have rampant crime/violence. To be honest and fair, one would have to say they feel as safe as a similar populated resort type area in the US or Canada. When that comparison is made, based on my limited travels to US resort type cities of very similar population, I honestly can not say that Lakeside is as safe. But, that is just my/our experience. YMMD. (Maybe a place like Marble Falls/ Horseshoe Bay Resort area in Texas would be a good comparison area).
  20. Yep, that says it all. Other stuff is just fluff.
  21. I agree, the Russians ! That evil empire is the root of all problems, and even when they are not, they should have been. Lets pull together and all hate Russia.
  22. Worth a read. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/07/21/mexico-experiences-deadliest-month-in-decades.html 2017 is deadliest year.
