  1. I think luvsdawgs and Ibarra are both right. The US stock market is not making much sense. Although, the new highs are certainly being driven by the good chance of Covid vaccines coming out in the next couple of months. However, the US market also defies the logic that the current $27 Trillion in US debt is real and will have to go even higher with further fiscal spending to bring the US unemployment and small businesses back from depression like numbers from Covid. This level of debt would normally lead to higher inflation and ultimate slowdown in the economy at some point
  2. We smell them in upper Villa Nova regularly and they are strong enough to wake you out of a sound sleep. They are definitely nocturnal and seldom leave their spray before 9 pm. Had a problem with family of raccoons back in VA and heard that human urine might deter them. Did not work !! Might need to try it here, rather than keep losing sleep over their strong and awful smell.
  3. No reliable vaccine will be available in December. Also, you can be sure reliable (ie, safe) vaccines will be available in the US before here.
  4. Think it is called Lozam ( Lorazapam) down here and any GP can prescribe it. Does not have to be a special pain doctor to prescribe it. Available at Guad Farmacia.
  5. I apologize for not responding sooner but the partnership in the mailbox was filled yesterday. Others can answer your questions about Ishop v. Handy Mail. I can tell you the cost for a small box at Ishop is about $120 USD/ yr and a medium box is about $564 USD/yr. I have had packages delivered to Ishop. Some have had aduanas ( import) taxes and some have not. Others can tell you about similar costs at Handy Mail. Thanks.
  6. Hi: We are looking for another partner to share a medium size mailbox at Ishop. We must pay by December 11th. Please respond on the board or you can call me at 376-766-1520. Thanks !
  7. Thanks Ellie for the info on LCS' fee for last year. Please keep us up to date when you can on the 2020 LCS vaccine fee ! Thanks again
  8. I think Bancomer is one of, if not the most customer unfriendly bank lakeside! I had an account there once and could not wait until I could close it. They had strange charges always attached to my account and my balance never seemed to add up. They always had excuses and I felt that they were never honest with me. My entire experience with them was a nightmare. I would recommend having your money at Multiva or Intercam.
  9. I also highly recommend Dr. Daniel Briseno. Very personable and knowledgeable. Had endoscopy done by him about 4 yrs ago.
  10. Congrats on your recovery and your bill. Unfortunately. I paid 149,000 pesos for a laproscopic hernia surgery at Puerto Hierro Sur Hospital in late February. It was a huge rip-off. That was for hospital only and my surgeon said that was the third occurrence of outrageous billing of his patients there in one week. That did not even include spending a night in the hospital. In and out the same day. I certainly recommend staying away from Puerto Hierro Sur Hospital !! It might be more convenient than going into Guad, but not at that price !!
  11. Does anyone know what the fee will be for the 4-strain flu vaccine at LCS? Thanks.
  12. You really would trust taking the Russian vaccine?? I do not think it has been properly vetted by any world health organization standard.
  13. About 3 weeks ago, I got there on a Monday morning and she said I was too late, that the mail for Laredo leaves at 8 a.m. on Monday. And, that was after stopping on the Sunday before to realize they are closed on Sundays.
  14. They have the best cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted and only 12 pesos !! I ask for and they pleasantly give more glaze on them. Best of all, no raisins.
