    Salvador’s Restaurant

    Actually, I am with a lot of others so unhappy losing Salvadors and the thought of going from a cosy quiet retirement area to a bustling overpriced small town is kinda outside my reasons for being here. I knew what we had here and was and still is happy to be in Chapala for the long term. I am way past hoping for future expensive growth in this lovely Mexican retirement area.

    For years I have been jumping around from one free app. to another for all kinds of reasons and usually ends in the owners of the apps giving up updating the program or just shutting it down. I also got fed up updating and changing to bigger and better apps so often it became hard to remember which was best. so My opinion to anyone is find a good pay service. It is totally worth it. Now that does not mean it will be available forever but it is a choice you have to make.
  4. excellent information Thank you very much Jrod
  5. I read in the Reporter some time back that there was some key points to ensure we do when flying out of the country. We have our permanent designations and I did read on the reporter that if you did not follow some procedures you could lose your Permanente status. Any help on this will be appreciated.

    Seguro Popular Changes ?

    Of course Permanent residency is harder to get approved in Canada as it now is in Mexico but purchasing a house and splitting your time between countries like a lot of retirees do is fairly easy and welcomed. . Living in Canada part time is the easiest route. While traveling to Canada is relatively easy for U.S. citizens, retiring there permanently is a different story. Katz explains immigrants must fit specific criteria such as being a skilled employee or have Canadian family members willing to sponsor them. When applying for entry through some immigration programs, age may be a factor, making it difficult for older Americans to gain permanent residency. Fortunately, you don’t have to jump through any hoops if you’re willing to split your time between the U.S. and Canada. You could buy a second home in the country and stay in it for up to six months of the year as a tourist.

    Seguro Popular Changes ?

    you are joking here's a comment from USnews When searching for a place to retire, many Americans look south of the border. If you can adopt another language and feel at home with another culture, the savings that come with moving south can be a big help in retirement. However, moving north can be a good option as well. While retirement in Canada isn't the cheapest option, it can be a solid choice for Americans looking to stretch dollars and live in comfort. Here's why you should consider Canada for retirement:

    Very happy hear that has changed. I know you cant get that type of help in Canada.

    Seguro Popular Changes ?

    Mostlylost, Yes that is true They spend money and pay taxes but it is no different from any other country. There are strict laws in Mexico (benefits and deterrents) that Temporal card holders can or cannot get, Like buy a Mexican plated car and you bring a foreign plate into Mexico are 2 + or - but the laws are clearly outlined the choice is there for anyone to become a permanent or Temporal with these choices so are rules. Unfortunately "Temporal holders" cannot get SP. I am grateful for Mexico to allow me these benefits being a Permanent Resident and, I am one who has SP and it is cumbersome at first use for some but I have had good results.

    Barcelonaman, Yes I have tried them and they are fine. I think Terrarium is best of them all for movies and tv shows also it is easy for some of us to download adjust and there is always adjusting after click but we know that's not true for many others. Johanson Yes you are very lucky with TELMEX connection happy for you

    The only problem with free programs is you need some skills downloading and problem solving and working with updating and normal problems with internet speeds. If Spexmex's program runs anything like Eternaltv ( which it looks exactly like) it will be pretty easy to keep running problem free. A bit too expensive for me though. If you are thinking of downloading a program to see movies "Terrarium " is free of adds and very good layout for movies and shows. another good app is "Cerebro tv' although there may be a one time $50 cost to see this now but it is good for live TV

    there is a NON resident tax number on line you can call from here and get all the info you need. I had to fill in a form and get a letter of verification from the government that I was a non-resident. If you have minimum income you can file a tax form and claim some and maybe all tax relieve for 5 years and then you have to apply again.

    Ilox Subscription Update

    I have been tinkering with boxes for years and using inexpensive boxes with only 1 gb ram and 8 rom. I used Kodi all the time and yes you need to upgrade all the time. I finally decided to get a new box 3gb ram and 32 rom as it was more consistent to use with new APK programs. I got fed up tinkering so much trying to get everything free that I had to change my strategy. I now use Terrarium for (free movies) and Eternaltv which is live TV and satisfies Canadians, British and USA users. the cost of this is minimum if you have a couple of user friends even less. The only problem is Internet speed for users with 2 or 3mb probably wont work. I do not know how long these systems will continue to be there but right now it is the best I can do. I personally will not use many of the free apps anymore.
