  1. I had a bad experience with Bellon on car insurance about 5 yrs ago and just did the normal thing, moved my insurance to another firm. In this case, Parker has been great. But, agree everyone can have a good experience with any particular vendor of any type.
  2. Thank you. I just read on Spencer's blog on his website that you have 90 days to make changes with INM for : employment, address or marital status changes. I have had a Permanente for at least 5 yrs. After being totally harassed by an employee and el jefe at DMV when renewing my driver's license last February, I have no desire to deal with them again. Thanks again for your advice !
  3. Hi: I could not find anything readily to answer my question on this. We have recently moved within the Ajijic area. How important is it to make a change of address for your driver's license at DMV and also with Immigration ( INM)? If so, I do not see any place on the website to make an appointment at DMV for change of address, unless it is considered an " endorsement". Any help on this information is appreciated ! Thanks Any ehlp
  4. Where or which direction did this storm come from? We had no idea we were going to get this type of intensity of rain like this !
  5. Lake Chapala Society (LCS) does passport renewals on occasion. I got mine renewed in November, 2020 -- their first offering since Covid shut everything down. I got mine back from the Consulate in 20 days. It was a great (easy) experience. Call LCS to find out about future passport events.
  6. Hi: Selling HDDSR 600 Receiver and LNB for satellite dish ( Model XKU). LNB is compatible for both 600 and 800 series receivers. If interested, please call Jim at 376-766-1520. Thank you.
  7. I am moving to a home that already has a Shaw receiver and Satellite dish. I have a 2 year old HDDSR 600 series Shaw receiver ( HDMI connector cable to the TV is included) and also a 2 yr old Model XKU LNB for the satellite dish, which is compatible for Shaw 600 and 800 series receivers. I am asking 1,200 p for the receiver and 1,000 p for the LNB, both which I bought new. Please respond if interested. Thanks, Jim
  8. That is a great way to approach that, since my experience with the staff there last February was horrible. They made me go back home twice, since my phone bill said I had 4 pages to it, when only 3 existed, did not even have a blank page to count as page 4. I am sure use of Luis can avoid some staff attitudes like that.
  9. PharmaLife is a great generic manufacturer, offered in several different meds at GDL Farmacia. When I first arrived here 10 yrs ago, I was cautioned by a few people not to buy from Similares because the rap back then was that similaries are not equivalent to patented drugs, as generics are supposed to be. So, are the above references saying that similaries are equivalent to brand names, as generics are supposed to be? I know --when in doubt, always read the label prior to buying !!
  10. Looks like it was a one day glitch. Ironically, the next day program guide had all those programs listed that appeared the day before, but the stock coverage returned as it had appeared previously. Glad it came back normally.
  11. You can request for a correction but only if you have a copy of the document to send as proof. Our problem is they collected our original at the time we received our second vaccine. Since we did not have a download of the first original we are out of luck. They don't cut you any slack because they collect the first original vaccine document from you, whether or not that was their intention. Hope the world does not implement a vaccine passport or we will be stuck here.
  12. Most have covered this already. First, on taxes, the Mexican Federal Govt gets it share taken directly from your investment, I think monthly. The tax rate was was almost 1.5% but is lower this year to just below 1 % ( .96%). Second, some of your higher return funds can be risky. I remember having a 4 yr bond with Multiva. However, lost the entire investment when the entity holding the bond went belly up. They were a premier housing corporation for govt housing and then Nieto decided to change housing policy and as a direct result, they went bankrupt. So, beware of attractive returns -- they have risks. I have had good experience with one year notes with Multiva. Now, they are getting between 3.5 - 4%, after taxes are taken. Talk to Juan in the Casa de Bolsa side. If you want to do stock market fund type investments, they are available with them, but again come with risk.
  13. Since we have been without power from 8:30 last night until 3:30 this afternoon, took advantage of their delivery service to order a vegetarian pizza from Pizza 2 Go Go and the pizza and service were just GREAT ! Josue, the owner, formerly of Perry's and partner in M&J Pizza, said when I was ordering that they could use more business due mostly to the pandemic. So, please utilize and patronize a very good pizzeria !!! We need to keep them in business now more than ever !! Thanks.
  14. Gracias.. Connected with him and he will have them back to me tomorrow, ( Lunes).
  15. That is Lety's cellphone, who is the desk/ office manager there. They have had landline problems since they moved there. Lety is very good, despite this stressful situation ! They also give out out a second number for her assistant, Beth. That number is 332-050, 4009. However, I don't know how good her English is.
