  1. I am lookinf ror Barkys Jerky Sticks Palitos de carne, 1 kilo. We just got a new addition to our home, her human mother died (Covid), and this is what the girl is use to. I haven't been able to locate locally. Tried Mercado Libra and Amazon. Anyone ever see this local to Chapala/Ajijic? Thanks.
  2. IMO, the Municipality should/could enact some law, applicable to the municipality, that all trucks over a specified weight, must have proof of brake inspection every yea at the least, better six months. With proper inspection and maintenance, brakes should not fail.
  3. My wife's lady BFF lives in Canada and came here last year. She left her Canadian plated car here. She is coming here in November (at this time) for maybe six months. She wants to get her car nationalized. I read up on it and there is no way my double-digit I.Q. brain is near understanding it.It's a 2005 and I don't know where it was made and/or if covered by NAFTA or whatever is current. Thus my need for a broker. Referral(s) appreciated. Thanks.
  4. I hate the idea of being shuffled off to some hospital in Guadalajara. Thanks.
  5. I need to go to the U.S. Embassy and get there by 0900 on a weekday. I ckecked Uber and the price was $350.00 which seemed too low. I then checked a private driver and he was $850 which seemed too high. Thoughts?
  6. along with my passport and premente card. How can I get a copy, if at all, for my first shot. Please don't say "check online" unless you can give me a link. Thanks.
  7. Dr. Fauci said some time ago, that any vaccine is better than no vaccine. I went to the Technology Institute and didn't know what vaccine they were giving out until someone walked down the line with a big cardboard "sign" saying "SINOVAC" Would I have liked one of the others? Yes. If/When the Delta variant gets less scary, I go NOB and get one of the others. One thing to remember is that the World and everyone in it, are now in the Third Stage Clinical Trial.
  8. I just checked with LCS and the hearing aid man (polo?) no longer comes there. I would like to know if anyone knows of someone who services hearing aids in preferably Chapala or in Ajijic. Thanks.
  9. I am 82 and haven't been able to keep up on when/where to get the first shot. When I do find it, I'm too late. Any specific details will help. Thanks.
  10. I can't get through to either their USA or Mexico numbers. I have questions if anyone here has used it. I understand Managed Care. If I sign up for the Plan C that works in Mexico, if I go back to the U.S. can I use my regular benefits (like my doctors in the U.S.)? If I want to drop the Plan C, can I return to regular Medicare without problems? If you have this group, has it worked OK for you? Thanks.
  11. I'm thinking that this will be a benefit to the police who will stop someone and say the car can be impounded, etc. A foreigner will probably not know the difference. Appreciate information. Thanks.
  12. GOT IT COVERED. tHANKS TO ALL. I am an older male, no physical problems. I am looking for a person who would accompany me to T.J., cross the bridge and get their first (at least for me) shot. I will pay the round trip flight on Volaris and Uber costs. From what I am seeing, this could be done in one day. Leave early and return on a later flight. Please PM me. Thanks.
  13. I ask for PM because I don't want to get into some long, drawn out thread. My wife got Covid 19 when she went to see her family in Panama. She is recovering there, but it looks like it will be a long haul. I need to get vaccinated. I am looking to go to Tijuana, crossing the bridge and go (where). Come back and go again for the second shot. If you have done this, please walk me through it step-by-step. PM please. Thanks.
  14. Some llarger pieced, 2'X3'l 2'X4' You pick up Chapala Haciendas #2. Never used. $$5.50 for all, plus you pur the scrap pieces on the street for trash pickup. email: 1988jeopardychampion@gmail.com
  15. You pick up Chapala Haciendas #2. No delivery or gift wrapping. email: 1988jeopardychampion@gmail.com
  16. I have done CTRL and Alt at the same time and then the 2 key. Nothing. I have done AltGr and 2 key. Nothing. I have held Alt and typed 64. Nothing. Help appreciated.
  17. Bateman, good communicator and reasonably priced
  18. Rules mean nothing w/o enforcement and penalties. What do yo do? Fine people that don't have money and/or take away money they need for food? Put them in jail where they are confined in close quarters w/others that may have CV? Every expert around the World says face-masks can make a major difference, but in Chapala, I see many, many people not wearing them, especially at bus stops, lines going into the banks on Monday morning and just people chatting in groups of 3-5. Finding problems is easy, having and implementing workable workable solutions is not.
  19. Using a VPN. Have it on my laptop and on my wife's Samsung Android. We have two profiles, one for me and one for wife on NF. Up to now, everything has been working fine. We both use Dallas as our VPN "home." She can watch one movie on the TV on her account, and I can watch another on my account on my laptop. Suddenly, she can use the Netflix title search box for a specific movie on her phone, but I can't find it on my laptop using the same search box. Any thoughts appreciated about this specific issue. Thanks
