  1. I have been filing our US tax returns using our Mexico address and the Get My Payment site recently showed me that an EIP check had been "scheduled" to be sent on May 22. We haven't yet received it so today I called the number referred to on a linked IRS site ( https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center#issuedbutlost) for this situation: 800-919-9835. After a 40 min wait a helpful IRSer did some research from my tax return info and informed me that I had been scheduled to be sent a debit card, but was among a number of people who lived in certain locations we were sent nothing. She told me that I would receive a check--not a card--but could not tell me when it would be sent. She did tell me that there was nothing else I could do about the situation. Note: on our Mexican landline you dial 880 instead of 800 after 001.
  2. Yes, the Ajijic PO located near Donas Donuts has moved. I was just there and the inside was being dismantled. One of the workers told me the PO had moved to Chapala, in el Centro, three blocks from the plaza on Degollado.
  3. Re: Angus I just checked to see if the check letter was in our nearby Ajijic PO. Found out it had just been closed and moved to Chapala.
  4. to kmetzger: Same boat as you. Get My Payment site says my payment was "scheduled" (sent?) for 22 May. I went to https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center#issuedbutlost to begin doing as you plan to do. Today, as the site suggests, I'll try calling 800-919-9835. If that doesn't work I'll file form 3911, linked on the site, and send to Austin. Good luck.
  5. As you did, Tim, I also worked with Mauricio and always looked forward to seeing him at the garden, and after a while, all over town. Have you checked out Dionico Morales's facebook page or La Peña de Santos Rico's? There are some good pictures there of Mauricio, including in his role as a village shaman hosting events at the gallery on Constitución. I sent an email to Sandy B at LCS promoting the idea of a bench there, and/or plaque, tree planting, photo, etc. Another thought would be to commission Dionicio to make his friend's portrait to have hung at LCS. What do you think? Tom
  6. Donations to help Mauricio's family with expenses can be made at La Peña de Santos Rico gallery in Ajijic centro, Constitución 16. That's one block directly south of the plaza. Phone 376 766 0281.
  7. Thanks for posting this sad news, Tim. I loved Mauricio, getting to know him over the four years I worked with him in the garden. He made working there a treat and an education in the uses of plants. We've lost a real fun-loving, people-loving, gentle, always helpful and enlightened soul. Descansa en paz, Mauricio, amigo...

  10. Until this week, every couple of months I would deposit one check for 5K from my US bank to my Bancomer account. Although they now have a 1K limit per check--as noted above--yesterday they accepted five checks each made out for one thousand. The teller and I exchanged eye rolls over this new requirement, but it is not as onerous as I originally thought; I can still take care of my regular 5K deposit in one visit.
  11. I see this post on the Chapala Municipal Gov's Facebook--https://www.facebook.com/GobiernoDeChapala/posts/2021847831388173--advertising a Drivers License event in Chapala on Feb 15. I'd like more info--en inglés. Is this only for renewals? Is there a driving test required? What qualifies as proof of your blood type? Gracias.
  12. I'm interested if you are in Ajijic or can deliver there. Send me a message, por favor.
  13. Racquet Club is too far for me. I'd play pickleball in Ajijic.
