  1. Information on llOX would be greatly appreciated... I am getting really tired of TelMex going down every Sunday morning...
  2. What is the current exchange rate for the renewal of US passports?
  3. Some info from those folks looking to buy hearing aids. a. Polo at LCS will sell the same model Costco sells at the same price. b. Costco sold hearing aids have a code that only allows Costco to adjust them... Something I didn't know. All brands other than Costco's can be adjusted locally by Polo... c. Costco does not carry a vendor's full line but only those models that sell... Which makes sense, but doesn't give the customer a full range of options... d. Ear molds are a thing of the past... A digital camera now takes a picture of the inner ear and the mold is 3d constructed... A big advance... e. I have to agree that hearing aids are expensive but they can be purchased on credit which raises the cost but does provide an option...
  4. For Legion members, the cost was $8500 or $9000 pesos prepaid...
  5. America ship will tell you what the cost will be BEFORE you buy a product... Cost is based on the size, weight and value... We have items shipped to their Brownsville address (normally free from the vendor) and we use our Handy mail address as the delivery point... No charge for Handy mail customers...
  6. America ship provides estimated customs duty on items... One must send a copy of the receipt with the value and the size and weight of the article... I had a replacement poster sent with no value and was charged no duty...
  7. We use Amazon (US) for many things and a shipping service for others. Both quote the custom charges before we buy...
  8. Dra Pilar at Haro's is excellent...Barragan has an excellent reputation...
  9. We have a dumpster outside our gate put there for the convenience of the garbage people.. AND we pay semi-annually. My question to those in a similar situation, Do you pay the garbage people directly or the city???
  10. Living in a compound has some deficiencies... Paying for garbage pick up seems to be one of them.
  11. Our compound has been trying to pay our semi annual garbage payment... We have been trying since Dec... We are now being told by the City that we should deal directly with the contractor... Since the city ostensibly has a contract (25 yrs) with the city, this arrangement seems a bit odd... My question is has any other group had this situation come up?
  12. Beware of individuals renting autos... Rental cars require commercial insurance which individuals usually do not purchase... Your butt is hanging out should you get in an accident as without the proper insurance, the insurance company will leave you hanging in the wind...
  13. Haro's office completed a bridge for me recently. The cost was 1300 USD... Excellent work... The price included an extraction...
  14. Travel insurance is a very good idea... Be sure to get Mexican coverage on your auto as stateside insurance companies normally do not extend coverages into Mexico... Recommend Lewis and Lewis out of California... They write policies for Qualitas, a Mexican insurance company...
  15. The problem here is that there is a finite good cabinet lumber supply and much of it is air dried and subject to checking... We have had numerous articles made here and the workmanship is OK... BUT knowing what we know now, we should have shipped all of our furniture.
  16. Quality end tables start at $250 up (US), If you have a good mattress, send it... We are on our second one in three years here...
  17. If you have decent furniture it would pay to ship it...
  18. I believe that to register a car one must have residency and not a tourist visa... Buying the car is simple but registering it becomes another adventure... Passport, Immigration card, CURP, and a phone or electric bill are the normal requirements... Maybe an RFC also...
  19. If you have a service-connected disability the people at Lakeside Medical Clinic may be able to help.
  20. We purchased two new cars through S&S and used our Capital One Card... We received a better than average rate of exchange and received many air miles... The Honda dealer charged for using the card but we still came out ahead $$ wise...
